I don't see it listed (I might be blind). But did voice chat get removed for spectators? Very few games let spectators hear each team's comms, and it was really cool to listen to both teams as one mounts an attack and the other reacts to it.
This right here is the biggest issue with HMG'sIt honestly annoys me more than it should.in Update 299 Released! - Natural Selection 2 Comment by Zxaber May 2016(Quote) Players that are good as Comm aren't necessarily good as foot soldiers. The reverse can also be true; I fancy myself a good subordinate but not the greatest commander. Instead, players that are decided to be the commanders of the previous…in Fix balance, Give players XP Comment by Zxaber July 2013(Quote) It's been like that from the start. Not sure why, I'd love a way to swap it too.
Currently, the only way I can do it is with a autohotkey script, but its not perfect and seems to add a tiny bit of delay.
I'd say its possible, but would be a fair amount of work and you'll really need to be committed. Though you'll want to rework some of those ideas a bit. (Quote) AutoHotKey wins every round. You think pistol scripts are bad? Not to mention that it …in Natural Selection: DNA (A Possible Alternative) Comment by Zxaber April 2013To try and get back to discussing solutions, here's my thoughts on unfair textures. I'm thinking that a whitelist is probably going to have to happen. Consistency checking would be put in place for the default materials (if its not already). Any mod…in Hacking, Cheating and NS2 Anti-cheat Comment by Zxaber April 2013Wallhacks, iirc, are simply transparent wall textures, right? If so, I'd imagine consistency checking could address that if it was checking map materials as well. As for scripting, the only real problem so far that I know of is pistol scripting, and…in Hacking, Cheating and NS2 Anti-cheat Comment by Zxaber April 2013(Quote) Try as I might, I can't mentally picture that without imagining the moving plates catching on hair. Ouch.
Also, macro to change the desktop background when outside temperature is >70 degrees?in Woman marine ? Comment by Zxaber April 2013Making a whole suit by hand would be extremely difficult. An easier way might be taking the game's models and splitting them up into 3d-printable pieces. Then, one you have a suit of plastic, you could make molds for metal casting.in Metalworking thread? Comment by Zxaber March 2013Paint.net is a free, lightweight image editor that can add transparency to supporting formats. Simply use the wand to select all black, and then hit the delete key.

Trigger would be mouse4 (referenced as mousex1 in AHK).in Pistol Script - Another discussion Comment by Zxaber March 2013(Quote)
I could have sworn I remember reading about a plan to make the flamethrower disable buildings. Whips and Hydras would thrash around and generally do nothing until the fire was out. Was this ever added? Was there a reason it would h…in More than 2 marine weapons? :O Comment by Zxaber March 2013(Quote) I was not aware of this. So I'll grant you that, at least. If NS2 started using Punkbuster, hopefully the list of blacklisted programs wouldn't be too bad.in Not VAC Secure. Comment by Zxaber February 2013(Quote)
There is no such thing as being worse than punkbuster. Kicking clients for running a banned program without telling them what program you have decided to blacklist is not how you treat players. A update system that refuses to work …in Not VAC Secure. Comment by Zxaber February 2013I'd say, in my opinion, the biggest issue with this is that alien commanders wouldn't be able to block marines dropping a CC in the early-mid game. Generally harassing marines with cyst drops to keep them from building up until your team gets there …in Reduce Hive Death -> Buildable CC time Comment by Zxaber February 2013The pack was removed/changed because, if I remember, the devs said it wasn't fitting in well. In fact, before that, it simply powered all items nearby. I believe it was adding even more to the turtling that marines were allowed, since destroying the…in Battery that powers buildings Comment by Zxaber February 2013(Quote)
Not gonna lie, that's how I felt when I played Nuclear Dawn for the first time. That game has this feature and seeing it sort of glide across the map as it examined each area was a bit unsettling.
