Welcome one and all to the next exciting release from the AFF: Planetstorm team. This build has been designated our BETA version, and focuses mainly on getting all the core features slick and playable, and we believe we've done that. This release is also our first to fully support online play, and we've had a dedicated server donated by CozmicShredder which we fully expect to see you all playing on in the coming weeks.

Welcome one and all to the next exciting release from the AFF: Planetstorm team. This build has been designated our BETA version, and focuses mainly on getting all the core features slick and playable, and we believe we've done that. This release is also our first to fully support online play, and we've had a dedicated server donated by CozmicShredder which we fully expect to see you all playing on in the coming weeks.

Good job, but why did you host it at Fileplanet period? There is a 10 minute que just to download the freaking mod. Are you kidding me? There has GOT to be better mirrors than garbage planet.

Looking forward to playing it when the non-existent 16 people ahead of me in line start their download. **** you file planet you are the worst hosting site on the internet.

The submission process to the MakeSomethingUnreal mod requires that we upload to fileplanet. we dont really like it any better than you guys, but we ARE working on a newer build, RC3, and in a couple of days we'll do a quickchange on all our posts and upload the RC3 here at moddb.

This is really disappointing for me, and very strange. For those of you whining about Fileplanet, be glad because it seems you can still at least download from it.

I, on the other hand, cannot even get it to download. When I use Firefox, it tells me that an ActiveX control could not be installed (It never gave me any option or anything), so the download cannot start. I'm using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8, and when I use IE, I install the ActiveX control, then IE proceeds to tell me that the site is unsafe and thus shuts down the download, screwing me over.

I CAN'T DOWNLOAD IT!!! -_-"

It's now hosted by ModDB so, download it if you have the chance. Also you may try downloading it from CozmicShredder's site rather than Fileplanet or Filefront.

Primarily to get boarding working properly. Plus a few other bits and bobs.

u just approach the vehicle/console and fire at it, it should fix it, watch the health indicator though because there aren't any FX sparks yet
