Some updates from my end. I know the final release for Off Limits has been taking forever. As I mentioned in the past working on a mod with only 2 people is quite a haul. After the beta release I looked at what could be fixed on the levels and their design to make them work better in terms of game play and design. I finally fixed and finished those issues on all 3 of my levels. Here are some changes I made:

- In Russia where people got lost I made all paths go directly into the next spawn point area by removing the side paths. So basically you now walk into a spawn point area automatically (this was already the case in the other levels).
- Redesigned Undersiege 100%. The level had large open ended stretches where people would only travel to the next spawn point without seeing much action. So I reduced the distance of all spawn points causing quicker encounters and thus more action packed gameplay. I also re-designed the levels layout to work better for vehicles to drive without hitting any weird out of sight corners.
- I quick fixed this early after the beta release. For Styx I added a pathway up to the spawn point from underneath the underpass leading up to the train station platforms. As people seemed to get lost there looking for the spawn point above.

I am very proud of the work I did on these levels and I think they will work well for our game play. And I want to thank all those who took the time to help playtest them and to make them better.

As for Off Limits. Maarten is going to be fixing the remaining issues that are important to gameplay next month. As soon as those are ready (hopefully before December) we will release a first final version of the mod to keep you warm during winter!

I also updated the Guide with a final keyboard layout. As some complained they were layed out weird I now used the TF2 layout as a base for ours. Hopefully people will find them more intuitive this time around. These are the default binding and can be changed ingame. Click image to view the guide.

Hopefully this time next month we'll meet on our servers!

Life happened. Maarten and myself worked on "Amnesia: A machine for Pigs". Later I moved to California to work on "The Order: 1886" and Maarten has still been working for The Chinese Room on their next upcoming title "Everybody's gone to the rapture". As for Off Limits. We did a lot of internal playtests back in 2008 and 2009 after I finished my work on "Mirror's Edge". The game was a lot of fun to play and apart from some gameplay fixes the game was pretty much final. Funny you posted this comment because I spoke with Maarten last week if he would be interested in finalizing this game and doing another "proper" final release for it. Mainly to see our hard work online as we intended it to be all these years later. We're just not sure what, who or where would be the best place to release this today and to get the word out to as many people as possible to still get some people to play it all these years later. But honestly we would release it for ourselves most of all, to close this chapter. But I do want to play this again myself honestly. Fingers crossed.

Still waiting on the full client, not going to take any risks or vote for this mod if it isn't done. I have faith, but I'm not gonna waste one vote on an unfinished mod, sorry :/ ...

wow, where are all these comments suddenly coming from... :o

Yes we are still alive, we need to fix some code issues before we can release the next update and before we can revive our servers. Sadly we don't have a dedicated programmer at the moment who has time to fix these issues. Maarten will look at them once his schedule clears up a bit. Most likely next year. So we still don't have a final release for this mod yes, but we are quite close. It's all in the hands of a programmer at this point.

Hey, this is Deadrawkstar from I've played this mod several times, with a few of the same people, this is a beta, i know that, but i'm still going to list what i see good and bad about it. Good -Maps: Their the BEST feature of this mod so far, although some are big, and built for full servers, they're diverse and fun. -The Class Maker: This has been seen before, but this stripped down version is nice and simple, although it could use refining. Bad -The animations are horrid, most…
