The most a team will be able to scrape together will be maybe two or three people.
Which is often enough. You don't usually need to organize every player on your team, just more than the other team does.

Hey I have a question, can the quake (3 is it? cant remember) engine handle a graphics upgrade? or would have to just make a whole new engine, or alternatively, can you upgrade this one? A graphics upgrade would be in the range of maybe a thousand more ploys handled on each model at max, with out any more lag than it has now, for example.

Also is it possible to create bump mapped textures for this engine?  or any advanced textures for that matter...


ALSO will 1.2 be a download by its own? or will it be simply an update download for the current version (note that I would prefer that it be its own new thing, since tremfusion messed up my console with tremulous, and I don't feel that I should have to go through the trouble of doing the work they said would fix it.  I just want to start over)

Beta is an add-on to your existing, not-broken install. Final will be standalone.

Yeah I know the beta, thanks though, for answering the question. I'm getting a freaking boner from it being standalone in final, I wont make the stupid mistakes I did before with the some of the add ons.

What he said

AND

CAN WE PLEASE HAVE SOME SORT OF FRIENDLY NO COLLIDE PLEASE!!!, not structures of course but player, its really annoying when you constantly bump into other players. Also maybe some structures should have no collide to friendlies too, like the booster, for example, or if not no collide, the ability to walk over it with out jumping.

Use this thread for feedback (or, you know, the feedback forum). This thread is for asking about changes you want explained.

Please post feedback for 1.2 in the feedback forum; this thread is for asking about changes you'd like explained. Better to not bury your post ten pages deep anyway.

Tremulous 1.2 is really nice game for me. For extreme camp you can make for example ''promod'' like it was before. With this flying reapter.
Anyway im glad that i can come back to this game. (Finally something new)
Anyway from recent changes, basi is too much overpower now imo. Now you can kill 3 ppl with helmet without any scratch O.o , really easy one. But i like it. :)

Honestly guys as long as you keep the changes balanced, I don't care if I have to adapt to using a granger with 10000hp.

All I care about at the moment is the skins, especially that md I saw.

"Anyway from recent changes, basi is too much overpower now imo. Now you can kill 3 ppl with helmet without any scratch O.o , really easy one. But i like it. 
Basi <3"

Basi's were always strong, people just never clued in that basi swipe indeed had a longer range than basi grab.
Which leads to my next issue:
Why did you make basi grab longer than basi swipe?
That'd be like suggesting I would be able to properly and effectively grab someone before
I punch their teeth in.  ???

Basilisks slash, not bite. And no one brought up realism when the slash was longer than the grab.

Realism has never been priority; Tremulous really isn't a particularly atmospheric game, and is definitely not a simulation, so I've never thought approaching its design from that standpoint was the right way to go.

I'm not sure I remember why those basilisk changes were made, but I'm pretty sure the grab range was increased simply because I wanted it to be easier, and then the slash range was reduced, probably to put it at parity with the painsaw (which is at 64 now). So basilisks still have the advantage if they can position themselves well, but painsaws aren't quite as helpless. And 64 for the basilisk slash is much more appropriate than 96 -- that's almost what the tyrant's reach is.

Realism ruins games.

If it were realistic, when you died, well, you could never play the game again.

Psh, in 2000 years they will have clones and teleportation. ;D
spam spam spam, waste waste waste!
Are they cool names like WarriorSlug, ScoutSlug, SlugSlug, etc.?  I think the names of the slugs are important and should convey 'Hey I'm a Slug that does X function and none of the other slugs do that, so please don't do my job because I'm X slug.'

It doesn't have to be realistic, it just has to make sense.

ESD / SD don't fix camping, they just make it end faster. The problem with camping is that a team can have all players sit in one place and not lose instantly. Domination mod pl0x.

I've already spoken to risujin about getting domination mod updated.  The }MG{Domination server is/was my all time favourite trem server.

Just because he's not active in trem stuff doesn't mean he's dead.
He's still around and said it probably wouldn't be too hard and hopefully he'll have time some point over christmas.

I've packaged tremulous-gpp for Arch Linux. It's available in AUR and as a binary from the Arch-Games repo.

Lucy is now WAY TOO FAR OVERPOWERED. I played many games, and that's what I disliked the most.
It becomes now very difficult a lucy with a rant or a goon...

And I find goon's and rant's range too short, but I didn't play those classes enough to have a real opinion.

Is the increased basi grab range intended to allow it to grab humans for other aliens to kill?

Would it be worthwhile to disable friendly fire damage for the basi while grabbing?

It was intended to make it somewhat easier to grab in general.

Would it be worthwhile to disable friendly fire damage for the basi while grabbing?
Why would it be worthwhile to single out one class in one situation to be killable by teammates when friendly fire is off, especially when that one situation is an act of teamwork?
