"Would it be possible with a "bodycount" mod or mode in NS2 where bodies of the fallen remain in place? Possibly they can be removed by consumption by aliens and the infestation (extra res) or disassembled by the welder (also extra res). Would be cool to stand in a corridor on a pile of aliens and hammer away ye ole' 'chinegun. It would add an extra dimension in blockage though. -Daniel V."
Cool idea. The awesome thing about the tools and our modding setup for NS2 is that this would be really easy. I think it would be no more than a couple dozen lines of Lua (which is a pretty simple language) and possibly a couple particle effects which you can build visually using our Cinematic Editor. 99% of the NS2 game code is written in Lua and we will be releasing it all with the game. So you can change the resource model when welding alien carcasses, disable the fade away time, etc.
Of course, mod code will all auto-download and won't muck up your install so you can always play "vanilla" whenever you want. We think NS2 is going to have the most creative and prolific mod community ever!
