  • [QUOTE=LEETNOOB;34800229]I did not use a green scheme in Green Shift.[/QUOTE] blah, I thought so because of the first reply in this thread as for the update, it didn't seem to be working in the Canadian server, when I examined someone it didn't show up for more than anything else.
  • I'm thinking about adding in a "Garrote" weapon, which would allow a player to strangle a player from behind. There's already a knife, which instantly kills a player from behind, but I'll add pain sounds and make it so players that are backstabbed let out a loud scream, while using a garrote would have you to keep on strangling the target for 5 secs, but the only sounds a player would make are quiet suffocating sounds. How about that?

(Making a positive and a negative)

Basiclly like a Stamina System like the one that was used on City RPG, I think I asked LEETNOOB about adding in a Stamina System but I'm not sure if he will add it in or if the Sprint Key will be used for something different.
  • As suggested, I've added a stamina system. There are no stamina bars or stamina text, it's indication is purely based on sound and visuals. Whenever it's below 50%, you'll start hearing heartbeat sounds (the lower the stamina - the faster the heartbeat). The edges of your vision will also become much more black the lower your stamina is. I've also added a low ledge grabbing system, which lets overcome low walls. Actions such as sprinting, jumping, pulling self up after grabbing a ledge decrease your stamina. Stamina regenerates twice as fast as it drains when compared to sprinting. Players that carry guns/armor vests will lose stamina faster than those who don't. So, if you want to chase somebody, make sure you don't have that much shit on you.

  • I'll try to raise interest by going on TTT servers and "advertising" hopefully I won't get banned.

  • advertising your server on other servers just makes yours look like a pile of shit to be honest
  • [QUOTE=Banana Lord.;34837020]advertising your server on other servers just makes yours look like a pile of shit to be honest[/QUOTE] Which is why I don't want him to do that. I'd rather have my gamemode get popularity the normal way instead of shamelessly advertising. Edit: That garrote thing I wanted to add would look really awkward without any animations/models/etc. So, I'm not going to add it. :(

  • This is how your screen looks like when you have 0% stamina (click to enlarge): [img_thumb]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/468610754551648436/D96B6F143C6D093037F6D47589CE297DAE0912B1/[/img_thumb] So, vignetting, motion blur and a heartbeat sound makes it look (and sound) really convincing that you're low on stamina.

  • If you want I could put up a server in Chicago since I have a box sitting there.
  • [QUOTE=Neddy;34848344]If you want I could put up a server in Chicago since I have a box sitting there.[/QUOTE] I appreciate that, but I'm going to have to turn the offer down. We have 3 servers already and none of them ever get full. And since I'll be releasing this gamemode soon, it decreases the need for another server even more.

  • Good thing I didn't rush the release and decided to playtest a bit more. :v: I fixed a very stupid bug, and added more features.
  • I was playing this yesterday and the most ridiculous thing happened. I see a bunch of people, I guessed who was the agent, shot the guy and found out he really was an agent! That kept going on for rounds. By the time I stopped, about 90% of people I killed were agents! Lucky bastard, aren't I?

Yesterday I had 8 people playtesting, and one of them was constantly randomly accusing people of being agents. He kept on killing random people, and his karma went down to horrible. He's one lucky bastard, ain't he?
