So we want to bring Team Fortress to AvP2. It shouldn't be too difficult, all of the weapons we need are already in AvP2, and configuring armor and run speeds and whatnot isn't too hard. What we need, however, is input on how this should go down, and modders to make the more difficult things happen, like possibly adding new weapons and more importantly, new GAME MODES, like Capture the Flag or Assault, things that teams do that aren't Team Deathmatch. However, this is AvP2 Fortress, so everything should have an AvP2 twist to it. Like Preds and Aliens on the teams realistically, but not whorishly. No Predator rocket-launcher guys, for example, but a Predator as the Spy, a class that's supposed to cloak and primarily use a knife anyway. -- SMID
We finally had a go with a new netcode. While hit detection was stamped and approved as OK, lerping (entity interpolation) was not.

Saturday evening we had the first "cheeky" test, then we talked for more then two hours on Skype. The following is an edited audio from that discussion:
We had the same people joining in on Skype: Ed (aka Hellraiser), Guus (aka Gps), Matt (aka Moose_Head) and Alien Grand Master
We reached the conclusion that while the hit detection seems to have improved a bit, lerping (entity interpolation) looks really jerky. We also considered mid-week tests, but just for netcode testing. And since 13th of June did not bring a playable new netcode, the bet is still on.
Last week's discussion concluded that some maps are not that well suited for Domination. TO find out exactly which maps are good and which are bad, one of our community members has started a thread war for domination. Pay a visit and vote up your favourite maps, and vote down the ones you didn't like on Domination.
What's up with the song you keep hearing? Well, that's just a weird Easter Egg: the medic has the taunts changed to play segments from "The Cheeky Song" by Cheeky Girls.
Your next test's cheeky girl,
