Nah, I managed to unwatch this by clicking the link, but by accident, not because I hate you. But I clicked it again, so I am re-watching/getting all the updates.

Agree with Ninjadave. Since the modcast didn't produce any new episodes, there's a void that you guys can fill it. Podcast 17 is waaaay to focused on Valve (no offence to the guys making it) and I'd like to hear of other games and mods besides HL/HL2/any-valve-game.
Just one advice: relax :) . You're doing good.

Of course not. Both red and blue team can use marines, preds, aliens and even synthetics.

... whorehouses? Really? Was the US Army so badly funded they had to resort to that? lol.
I'll give the mod a play though.

I understand why the confusion :)
The nickname is a mix triggered/influenced by the two games that I was playing: AvP2 (as the alien drone) and MOHAA (as a german officer, in MP).

Erm, no, I'm Romanian. So, AvP3 didn't give you a good impression? TO be honest, it didn't impress me that much either. But I am biased (I like AvP2 a lot), so until I see their single player in action I don't want to lash out against it.

Herr_Alien Aug 24 2009 replied:

Ha :) I'll pass the idea to Guus.

Regarding turbolifts, those are a no-no. All doors in AvP2 are no-no, since their position is actualised by the server. That also means colision detections for players that, unlike SP, have a latency different of 0.

How did that attempt end up?

Not quite so, if you ask me. It's more of a drumm & base approach for the ambient one. The drums are a bit too strong if you ask me, true, but the piece definitely hasy rythm and theme.

Well, belive it or not, the map was made by an Alien fan. As for the series being family-compatible, that's ok. We're just interested in the level, and from what we played on it, it provides a very nice experience for teams of 2 - 3 payers.

I say try it :)

True. Still, I love the idea of using google maps the way you guys do it. Every mod that's aware of what's good will start doing the same :)
You guys did a nice job there.

For all it's worth, I admire your persistence. You experienced a lot of approaches, and didn't givr up. It will pay off at one point. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you guys!

Hi there!

Well, unfortunately it will not work on AJLs. Both Savior and AJL have a common file that get's changed, so the mods are not compatible. Good news is that AJL is working on having his mod use the new master server. For more details you should contact him on their forums.

I think it's also a demand issue: their work is needed only after the first concepts are done, then only later on, for further aditions/corrections.
But no matter the cause, the graph does look right.

Eh? That's the picture, that's what caused it. Now, having this feedback, you know what can be improved. Heck, everybody has to start from somewhere.
Good luck with the mod!

I think he means the UV unwrap for "A brand new shipyard for the Ancient:". There is one face visible that has looong stripes on it, that look like being caused by having the face shrunk when unwrapping.

Hmm, I did experience slower downloads. And from what Greg says, it makes sense now: I'm romanian, so I do use EU mirrors.

He he he :)
That kinda reminded me of the first "The Ring" movie,

**** spoiler alert ! ******

when they find and free the girl. You get that serene scene, with the lead character and her son just chilling out. She tells him something like "It's ok now, we found her and we set her free". The kid gets scared by that and tells his mom: "You set her free?! You were not supposed to do that!"

So ... Dave ... were you supposed to set those cows free? :)

Play Shaddow of Chernobyl. It's the first game in the STALKER series. It's less frustrating. Ok, the pistol sniping is still there, but at least you can take cover using trees.

Well, we planned to have it mode like the Father computer on Auriga; because of this, text to speech programs work OK for it.

The alternative would be to actually get somebody record the announcements :O :)

Herr_Alien May 27 2009 replied:

Well, it became a pain for the Domination game mode, because triggers are used a lot in it. In the other modes (CTF, 1FCTF), the players interract with triggers only when taking the flag or making the capture. That's not that often, so the issue didn't became known until we added Domination.
