Atom & Karrde's NS2 Give Away

~CaffeinePowered


KARRDE AND AT0M'S BIG GAY MS PAINT NATURAL SELECTION 2 GIVE AWAY!

An Image

Rules: Take any official NS2 art or screenshots off of http://www.unknownworlds.com/ or http://www.naturalselection2.com/ and use MS Paint to make a comical piece.  If this takes more than a few minutes, you're doing it wrong.  Karrde and At0m will decide which entry is the best and will choose the winners.

For those who don't know, NS2 is an updated sequel of the original Natural Selection Half-Life mod, and it's coming out THIS MONTH after a long development cycle. It features a combination of FPS and top down RTS mechanics with two asymmetrical sides.  The game takes its inspiration from films like Aliens and games like Starcraft.  All around a nice, fast paced shooter.  Highly recommended. Now I'm not sure if this gets you into the current beta, or just the final game.  Frankly, I can't be arsed to look. Strike that, at0m did and it's both!  BESIDES YOU ARE GETTING A FREE GAME BEFORE IT COMES OUT SO WHY DO YOU CARE?!

Anyway, good luck?  Winners to be decided and announced on 10/19

Server Updates

~CaffeinePowered


As most of you should be aware by now Red's IP changed, I initially said this changed due to a crash on gameservers' part, this is not the case. I spent most of my snowmageddon day off porting everything over to NFO, Kirby spoiled the surprise several times over. I wanted to see if people actually noticed a change in or if the hit detection woes were mostly in their head.

Either way, its gotten a lot harder to seed Red as I expected so I was not wrong in overstating the value of a very old IP, as opposed to pubs flooding in when we'd get 8 people in, it now takes 12 - 14, it seemed last night that we had to get the server to 16 people before _any_ random joined. So, for those of you that kept hounding me to do this, step up or shut-up, because I can just as easily reactivate the old GS server if we aren't seeding this one. And I simply do not have the time to come home after work and spend a 2 hour session getting the server full only to watch it empty out within 30 minutes of me leaving.

Oh and Red now has a vote 5 min prior to the map ending, it will show whats nominated or the next 5 maps in rotation. Please be kind to pubbies in what maps you pick  :-*




Now, on to Blue - I have placed this plugin on Blue

This plugin disables unlockable weapons, forcing the server back to vanilla. Basically if you have an unlocked weapon equipped, it forces you back to stock.


What This Plugin Does:
- Prevents Users from Equipping Certain Weapons
- Re-Equips users with stock items

What This Plugin Does Not Do:
- Disables Hats and Other Misc Items

I've heard more than a few people say they'd play TF2 more if valve hadn't "ruined it" by adding things. So, just like I said with Red, nut-up or shut-up, if that's really what you want, now you have it  :-*



To Recap:
Red: Custom Maps + Unlocks - red.brbuninstalling.com
Blue: Vanilla Stock + No Unlocks - blue.brbuninstalling.com
Green: Payload-Only - 216.52.143.251:27015
Yellow: Vanilla Stock + Unlocks - brbu.game.nfoservers.com:27015
(HeK if you could make a yellow and green pointer, <3 )

I will be doing a re-evaluation of admin access on servers in the coming weeks and partially basing this on who is seeding and actually playing a fair amount. So if you are interested, let me know.

As a collective group we will be flooding our servers and opening "Pile O Gift" items from the Mann Co store.  When used, the gift pile will give a random item to a maximum of 23 people in the server not including the person activating the item. This means that in a server of 24 people everyone receives 23 random items.

The gift pile is $20 in the Mann Co. Store, so if you would like to participate please see the sign-up thread in the forums.

Starting back up after my 2 weeks absence, we'll be playing Fortress Forever

Fortress Forever is based around what the original Team Fortress 2 was going to be, retaining a lot of the mechanics from the original TFC. All on the shiny source engine.

Hope to see a lot of you turn out for this. It was fun when we played it before.
