First, The Thing Mod's site layout has been totally re-done. This is due to the fact that people were complaining that they could not view the site because of their resolutions and/or browsers. So, I made a new layout to be more resolution and browser friendly. If you have any problems viewing the site please comment in this news post.
Lastly, there's a new feature for human players. Adrenaline.
Beside the health bar on the players HUD (heads-up display) there will be an Electrocardiogram which detects the players heart-rate. The purpose of this is to monitor a players adrenaline. Adrenaline gives the player a temporary boost of speed however makes weapon accuracy a little more off and players take extra damage from attacks. This is due to the heart pumping much faster which causes quicker blood-loss. Adrenaline kicks in when the player sees a Thing, hears a Thing, or sees blood or a dead body. Adrenaline can be both harmful or helpful to the player, according to the situation.
This feature was previously suggested (I forget by who, sorry, if you're the guy tell me so I can credit you) and I considered it but put my own little twist on it. Anyway, stay tuned, there should be an interesting update coming your way soon!
