As usual, became busy with development and wasn't able to write all the news posts I'd intended :/. Here's some random information, just quickly:
As you probably read, we joked about Sven Co-op 4.1 being delayed & renamed to Sven Co-op 6.0 in the previous news. After posting that, however, we started thinking about it... and, after a discussion... actually ended up deciding to genuinely rename this release Sven Co-op 4.5 :p. There really have been a lot of changes for an increment of three hundredths (4.07 + 0.03 = 4.1), and we figured, why break our long-standing tradition of skipping version numbers?
So it's Sven Co-op v4.5 now. Apologies for crying wolf earlier.
We also mentioned two new weapons in the last news update. The first is of course the Shockroach. It was coded primarily by g1l, and works a bit differently from the Opposing Force version. In particular, it has a secondary fire mode now. g1l also added the "new monster ability", by the way.
The other second new weapon is the Sporelauncher. It functions as a grenade-launcher in Sven Co-op, and was coded by Sniper and AdamR (who has also added the ammo-generating Spore Plants).
I'll try to post some information on the new mapping features before the release. While you're waiting, you might as well try Tower of Heaven.
After today, we can no longer guarantee that donations will be in time to receive the bonus features in this release. If you do donate, make sure to send your Steam ID (e.g. STEAM_0:1:234) with or immediately after the donation in order to have a chance.
