First of all, the new ammunition type for the Rocket Launcher is done: Warfare rockets. They feature Laser-Guided rockets for the primary fire, and Cloaked-Ground mines for secondary fire. It's perfect, specially because the bots are a lot dangerous with this weapon, as they never stop aiming at you...

First of all, the new ammunition type for the Rocket Launcher is done: Warfare rockets. They feature Laser-Guided rockets for the primary fire, and Cloaked-Ground mines for secondary fire. It's perfect, specially because the bots are a lot dangerous with this weapon, as they never stop aiming at you... hehehe. But it's funny.

Today I've also finished the new ammuntion type for the Spitter: Liquid plasma. They remind a lot the old "Flubber Launcher", if you've played the old versions of the Mod. It means: cool bouncing slimes! Yeah, but this time they're more powerful than ever! To complete it, I've made custom decals, explosion effects and everything else.

Right after the new ammunition types were finished, I've headed to an Arena Match. I noticed it could be much more complete... so I've recoded it, and the next version will feature a range of 29 different arenas! Imagine that you want to play a Rocket Launcher arena. The menu will show 3 Rocket Launcher-related items: Pinball rockets only, Warfare rockets only and Both rockets. Yeah, that's amazing. I found Arena Matches much more enjoyable with two ammunition types instead of just one.

Oh, I forgot to say another cool thing I had done. More multikill messages! Triple kill and Mega kill were included. I thought I should create a new gametype to do this, but it wasn't needed! Also, you'll get Headshot messages for non-direct hits (imagine an explosion over you head) and non-AW weapons (when using the AW Lite mutator), but they won't give additional damage bonuses, of course.

And the projectiles were enhanced. It means that they can hurt with different damage types, so you'll never be "immune" to them. For example, a Rocket causes Heat Damage (the explosion) and an Impact Damage (when a Direct hit happens). So a person wearing the Thermal Suit may be killed for receiving the Impact Damage and a person wearing the Apocalypse Armor may get hurst by the Heat Damage.

Finally, I'm working on a death message code, which allows me to create random death messages, and also make them based on the place you've shot the person! Just cool.

And... I've changed the "RedBeam core" of the Pulse Carbine. Both projectiles were totally changed, now they're much more balanced and enjoyable. The primary fire is a fast beam that goes through people (and won't cause explosions) and the secondary is a ball that explodes while its flies! Also, they allow you to perform combos as well. The name was also changed to "Heat core".

That's it. Only more two ammuntion types to go (BrimStone and Artic Wind)! Of course, I also have to tweak more things, create a new pick up (to replace the Infravision Helm) and... create the new menu (the most boring part). And then... ready to rock!

Oh, I think it'll take more time... I have to tweak a lot of things (like the Brimstone, which must be carefully remade), and also... the ******* menu, which takes a lot of times (due to its colossal size, hehe)...

Fans? Hehehe... Does AW have fans? ;) hehehe... Yeah, I'll try to do some wallpapers... but I can't promise a thing, yah!

Anyway, it seems that every update I post here (and at the website) calls the attention of people, and then they join the AW forums... it's nice, and it'd be even better if you join the forums (hehehe), so come on people! There're a lot of discussions there about new ammunition types, fixes, tweakes, whatever!
