I've spent quite a while trying to figure out how to go about releasing the maps. I don't want to wait until they're all done and shove them out at once as that will take a very long time. Besides, I would very much like player feedback since I'm still a bit of a mapping newbie.
With the addition of the new weapon pairs exclusive to the maps, I have come to a decision.
When I have something worth showing, I will post an article with a Mega.nz download link to get the goods. These will be very short, likely archived articles, and the files will be zips containing rc.pk3 itself with any new maps already included for your convenience. If any other files get altered, you'll find them in the archive as well.
With that being said, we have a WIP worth showing off! This one does not have any progress on the maps, but it does contain the new weapons. These can be used outside of Annihilation Nation through the console. Here are some useful commands you can use to play around with them.
- summon flamerpickup/grinderpickup/hydrapickup (choose one of these three slash-separated items!) - Spawns the weapon pod at your feet which you can collect.
- give flamer/grinder/hydra (again, choose one of the slash-sparated items) - Places the respective weapon directly into your inventory for immediate use.
- give weapons - Just throws any base weapons you don't already have into your inventory along with an ammo refill for everything.
- give superweapons - This is a custom inventory item in the mod that gives you all V5 weapons and raises the wrench to V10!
- give ammo - More than an ammo refill. Because XP is coded as an ammo type, this command will instantly level up all weapons in addition to giving +5 Nanotech.
This archive contains the following.
- rc.pk3 with the new weapons and a fewscript and sound tweaks.
- rc_WeaponWheel.pk3, so the new weapons can be accessed from there.
- Documentation folder; I'm going to include this with every WIP release to keep things kosher with credits as well as provide the changelog so you nice folks can see what's new.
Get it here! Ratchet & Clank: Hot and Bothered - WIP #1
I'll keep each WIP link alive as long as I can, but when I near my capacity on Mega, they will of course have to start disappearing. I'll be sure to let you all know when that happens to minimize any confusion.
Lastly, some contact info! My email addresses are in the documentation, but there's no guarantee I'll answer those. If you have any questions, comments, or whatever that you don't want to post publicly, here's how you can reach me.

- Discord: Scarlet Mango#9198
Please be sure to let me know why you're reaching out in your first message. If all I get is a "hey" or something like that, there's a chance I won't answer.
Anyway, enjoy the new WIP! More to come in the future.
