Things have been a little quiet here, but things are a brewin'. The website's down, server problems, but I'm going to move it to another server once I actually add some good content. The download for the Metal Beta 1 has been submitted so, hopefully, you will be able to download the mod

Things have been a little quiet here, but things are a brewin'. The website's down, server problems, but I'm going to move it to another server once I actually add some good content.
The download for the Metal Beta 1 has been submitted so, hopefully, you will be able to download the mod here (on the moddb profile page for Metal.)
But more importantly, a new update will be released soon, (I just have to clean it up a bit.) It will be called "Metal Beta 2" just for simplicity.
It includes a new CTF map, and a few tweaks to the previous Metal: Tower 1 (mtltr1) map. Mostly, I changed the gametype on that map to Offensive-Defensive CTF, which is pretty much what the gametype was supposed to be anyway.
The new map is "Jungle CTF." Two forts, and a jungle between them. It was my first attempt at making a jungle, and I would say it didn't come out too bad, although, it probably could be improved.

Also, aside from some minor tweaks and such, I started working on adding an M9 Tranquilizer pistol. You can't get it in any of the game modes without using a cheat yet, but it is implemented to work against the monsters. The reason for this gun is mostly for single player, but I might add multiplayer support too, if it doesn't get too difficult.

Most of the work in the next update was for multiplayer improvement, but there is still a lot to be done. One hurdle in my way is a lack of multiplayer players to test the game with, but I have found a solution for that problem, and if necessary, I can search online for testers.

The estimated release of Beta 2 is before the end of next weekend.
