    can you tell us how exactly we get these icons ?

    does it automatically give you an icon to your wonid after you've played ns on a certain server for a certain amount of time ? or is it a special server plugin ? or do the mods choose certain players and they just give em an icon ?

    You get these icons by doing something special for the community. For example, you get the constellation icon by donating money to NS (and you also get to playtest).

    Or simply belonging to a Clan. See the main page for details.

    That's a good question. I don't quite remember completely, but last time I saw a constellation member with Cheating Death on in a CD server, I think they both showed up. I'm not really sure as that was a long time ago and I just saw it in passing, I wasn't particularly looking at that player, not to mention his icon.

    When Valve releases the next version of HL, and Steam is needed for online play, all the Won IDs are gone. So, even if you donated, you will not have the icon anymore.

    Is this true? I'm not sure if the tags will dissapear because I have seen the green tags in the KB server on steam. Am just interested incase I donate and get the constellation tag.

    righty.. now this aint exactly the same but..

    right im new (been playing for 4 days now), so dont slag me off for not knowing, coz i cant get a dignified response from anyone whilst in-game.

    ok, in the bottom right of ur HUD as a marine, there diff icons. today i learned that they mean 'upgrades', such as pistols and armour. but theres one of a flexing arm which i just cant find in fronteirsman manual.

    any clues? confused.gif




    oh, and when my belly starts getting abnormally hairy, does this mean im turning into a nerd? nerd.gif

    The pistol is Weapon upgrades. The com gets them and it makes your weapon more effective.
    The Armor torso is Armor upgrades, the com gets them to let you have more armor.
    The Flexing arm is the Heavy Armor upgrade. This means the the com can drop you heavy armor from the Protolab, when he has enough cash.
    The jetpack means you can get jetpacks when the com drops them.
    The sensor sweep thin means that you have motiontracking.
    I think that's it.

    The Weapons and amour upgrades have 3 different pictures for them, relating to what level upgrade you have. A small pistol is lvl 1, A large pistol is lvl 2, A large pistol with a scope/laser sight is lvl 3. The armor upgrades are a little harder to describe, basically, the suit of armour just keeps looking bigger untill there is a helmet at lvl 3 along with the body armour. Hope this helps.

    Oh, and if the Jet Pack or the Heavy Armour symbols appear, that means that you are actually wearing that item I believe.

    Nope. Just that the comm has researched them.

    So for all you ppl who keep saying "Are Jetpacks ready yet comm?" LOOK AT THE HUD! tounge.gif

    Well I'll be damned. This whole time I thought the Veteran Icon was a new icon that meant you donated like 60$ or something. Kinda resembled a fade to me more than a medal.

    I have a question:
    I have the veteran status on my Wonid 742. Can the NaSe Team convert it to my new Steamid if Won shut down?

    Of course. Contact HAMBONE or E-TH33PH and talk to them. Or maybe Flayra. They can convert it if you have your steam id.

    I thought when the comm drops u a jp/ha an icon appears on ur screen indicating what u have. I'm pretty sure that's it. Theres no way to tell if the comm researched it unless he tells you or he drops u something

    omg radagast. You spam these forums now too? An admin/mod's nightmare I swear tounge.gif

    I was pretty sure the jetpack/HA icons appear when you're wearing them, not when they're researched...but then again I might be unobservant.
