As mentioned in our previous update the next goal for EX is to add a new class, the genestealer. I wasn't sure about the early choice of colouration for the stealer, so we put it to the vote on the EX forum. The result was a unanimous decision to change from the classic blue stealer to a more EX-like Red and Black.
Progress is going well with that, the coding, textures and model are already complete. Farseer is working hard at the animations, but they are not yet complete. Here is a short show reel of the 'stealer in his new colours going through his moves so far:
ChromeAngel has been adding more in-demand features to EX while the animation work is being done. The much requested "burst fire" mode for the bolter will be ready for testing shortly as is the support for in-game countdowns. In-game map voting is also in the pipeline, but it is questionable if it will be ready in time for the next public beta.
In the community Nqss AKA SIR_halyavshik has been working on a custom map EX_Hivecity, which is now ready for beta testing. Check out the download on the EX Contributions forum.
The team is also collecting and balancing options for the next great Exterminatus poll. So if you have any bright ideas for us make sure to write them up in the requests thread before the poll opens.
We look forward to unleashing the awesomeness that is Exterminatus beta 6.0 before too long. Keep the faith brothers.
Great, another poll of basic gameplay elements (Ammo and Healing) being placed against Plasma Cannons.
That's another 6+ months of this mod being unplayable.
teamplay is the only thing , that can help you.
And i havent seen anyone survived long enough to waste whole ammo
I've dropped the least popular items from the last poll (new weapons and the vanilla TDM mode).
The next poll will include an ETA for each item, in the hope that the voters will balance their enthusiasm for a more showy feature against their own impatience.
Links still not fixed , that link mistake is everywhere
If i can suggest, and i think it was suggested multiple time ... Why don't you add bot ? Like impreial guard for space marine faction, and termagaunt for tyranid's one ?
that was rejected many times because of AI which not capable of multiplayer
More info on AI bots for the nids will come soon.... its not final or anything, but after the stealer is released we will take a look at it.
Looks good :D
