    Wish biodome got more playtime than it currently does. I'm curious to see how eclipse plays as it will be the second NS1 map integrated into the new game. I'm expecting longer stalemateish games due to the (assumed) 4 tech point design like veil has.

    Please could you arrange for Santa to kidnap my wife for a few days so I can play NS2 without getting grief?

    What I ment was the ability to change the weapon model in-game (no mods), the same way you change your Marine/Alien skin

    It dosent have to be anything fancy like CS:GO, where you can pick up different peoples guns and look at their personalized details, just an use all Rifles or all LMGs [of course they will both fuction the same way, its just aesthetic] {Same with Knife/Switch Axe}

    Falldamage. It isn't eclipse without taking damage from jumping down to triad. With the CLANNG when you hit the ground hard.

    I've been saying this for nearly a year now but unless the community demands it, fall damage is probably not going to happen.

    Discovery is the map hinted at in the art book right?

    Yeah, that would be cool to see too obviously in the eventuality of life. Along with support for that alternative SMG model, NS1 fade, Knife, and a server customizable tick rate.

    Well Christmas IS technically at the 'end' of 2013. I can't imagine UWE will be spending a lot of time in the office around that period so I'm sure your wish is a realistic one!

    But boy, eclipse is going to be amazing for sure.
