I am pleased to announce that Sym has finished both the HUD and the Team Bar for NOTD 2, and we will be implementing them as soon as we find the time.
Now, the HUD you've most likely seen already, and the updates are mostly just tweaks such as moving the Equipment Bar closer to the Inventory and other minor adjustments. The most notable addition is the Team Bar, which works a little differently from how it does in NOTD.
First of all, the viewing players' box is larger than that of their companions and situated at the top. This is to aid players in keeping track of themselves. The remaining teammembers will be listed in sequential order below.
The displayed portrait will not necessarily correspond to whatever class the players have chosen, as Custom...
I continue to be bored and uninspired by the Commando. Have another secret class.
Class Name: Trickster Class Biography: A man of extraordinary charm and luck, John Doe has managed to swindle his way into the UGC Military and somehow land himself in Argus Company without going through the required combat training or serving the necessary deployment time. Class Stats: Hitpoints:200 Hitpoint regen:0.45 Shields:50 Shield regen:1 Energy: 100 Energy regen: 0.75 Armor: 2...
Okay. Number one complaint from new players about NOTD 2 is that the Reload hotkey is T, not R. And honestly, I see no reason to not change it.
Reload and whatever abilities currently have the hotkey of R can be swapped, and Reload being R just feels better in general. However, because of NOTD's legacy, there's a good chance that people will obtain the upset over changing Reload to R, so I'm going to toss up a poll to see what ye olde forume goeres think.
The results of the vote will influence my decision, although to what measure I cannot say - that will ultimately depend on how many votes and how much discussion happens.
A decision will be made by Feburary 10th. Hop to it if you care.
I was working on the Commando and had a flash of inspiration to do the UAV instead. Rather than wait ‘til the Commando is finished, I’m just going to do the UAV and then go back to working on the Commando.
Class Name: UAV Class Biography: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are often deployed in high priority missions to support infantry with both combat and scouting operations. Hitpoints: 100 Hitpoint regen: 0 Shields: 25 Shield regen: 0.5 Energy: 100 Energy regen: 1 Armor: 0 Shield Armor: 1 Movespeed:...
I have high hopes for this working out better in NOTD 2 than it did in NOTD now that Jumping is an integral part of the game. Also because I seriously re-tooled Gunslinger. With this, Tier 2 classes are done, and now all I have to do Tier 3. And then the Secret Classes, but those are coming waaaaaay later.
Class Name: Pathfinder Class Biography: Pathfinders are the UGC’s rapid response infantry, commonly being deployed at the first sign of trouble. They are lightly armed and lightly armored, but their expertise with handguns and their jump packs make them dangerous combatants. Class Stats: Same as NOTD, but reduce Base Shields to 80 and increase Shield Armor to 4. Weight...
