What would you do if you made the "Game Director" donation?

On fire with the threads lately, this one has always played on my mind lol!

I think I would get UWE started on NS3 immediately and get them to enlist CDT to give it a boost start!

Or get them to create a fully fledged Gorge Slide DLC :)) :))

    -Greanades more visible

    I would ask them to make grenade launcher smoke trail or at least pre shoot sound like with railgun charging.

    -Carebear gorges.

    I would make a carebear out of a gorge. I hate gorges i would make them like in ns1. No more battle gorges, no more running around biling shit. Players would have to acually take care of gorges not to be killed, in ns1 losing gorge was a big blow for the team right now "eh. gorge killed move on". In addition lerk lift to save gorges.

    -HMG with new model.

    -Catpacks for ARCs.

    -MEDPACK! more visible.

    I can never see medpacks droped. "skulk: OMG 7 bites no kill, marine: i got a medpack ;p". If i see medpacks on floor i trying to lure out a marine out of medpacks range. I would make UWE do medpacks more visible with a light rails from sky, and marine glowing red like with nanoshield. That would be obvious for me that this marine was saved by comm, and it wasn't netcode reghit problem.

    -Tunnels more visible.
    Now when hive is shaded its hard to see tunnels. I would make a big freaking arrow pointing down to a tunnel. And make tunnels not shaded for aliens only. (Maybe @Mendasp could do such an option in ns2+)

    -Loading screens not with nice map backgrounds but with game tips in a graphical way. Showing for example how parasite works etc.

    That is what i would change...

    To be fair I reckon CDT could probably do all this within a year as it is, providing they stopped bug fixing all together lol, you could probably think of a better use for $75,000 bro

    I'd have a lot of them work on a small project like a mobile game or app that would be useful, and make it so I had 100% ownership of the app for full profits

    I'd also take aside some of their best devs and have them teach me as much code as they possibly could within the few days

    Then I'd continue to support the app and hopefully make back my investment +profit

    Alien Vision for marines. A Visor or Goggles upgrade that highlighted Aliens or alien movement, kind of like Dystopia's Sound Wave Triangulation or Thermal vision. Maybe when you turned on thermals it makes you deaf to other sounds and when you turn on SWT it reduces vision

    Need for Speed: Cold Pursuit.

    Basically, a simulation of Alaskan winter driving after robbing a liquor store.
    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to play Natural Selection 2. The gameplay is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of military strategy and advanced mathematics you won't even win a single game. Theres also the game's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into the game. The maps and artwork draw heavily from Riddley Scott's Alien franchise, for instance. The players understand this stuff, they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depth of the game, to realise that it's not just great, that it also says something about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Natural Selection 2 truly ARE idiots. of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in the Marines' existential catchphrase "how do I get to be so good", which itself is a cryptic reference to the high degree of intelligence required to play the game as intended. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion when spectating a game. What fools... how I pity them. And, yes, by the way, i DO have a Fade tatoo. And no, you cannot see it. it's for the ladies' eyes only, and even then they have to demonstrate that they are within 50 hive skill points of my own (preferable lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid.

    Start ns3 for sure. Ns2 is a dead game and the numbers show it. No amount of fixing or patching will get the player base back to what it was the first few months, aside from full on F2P.

    Ns3 with very careful direction would be my vote.

    My 2630qm doesnt like dolphin #50-70 fps (and my chipset doesnt allow upgrade, unlike my new 765m). Maybe if they added virtual cores then I could use all 8 of my cores for those 2 threads.

    Anyways, on pc would mean modding and such.
