What to focus on first?

Polish and mod completion (add special functionality to bugs and stuff that have been needing it)
Finish and release the MAS Magma Exo-suit
Finish the MAS Scarab-Wasp playertypes
Create more ASN (robotic) playertypes
Finish up and release the currently exsistant but unrelased bugs (the Tremormites, the two spiders, BugMod 3, ect)
Work on the remainder of the wasps
Work on new bugs!
Create more MAS weapons/suits/items/ect

Author Topic: The Bug & MAS Mods (Server coming maybe)  (Read 427796 times)



Note: The Bug Mods and the MAS Mods are two separate add-on groups. The Bug Mods being packs of AI bugs and the MAS mods being individual weapons and vehicles made by MAS Inc.
They are still both included in this topic because they share the same story line.




--Testing Server Information--

I generally host on Saturdays. Servers usually go up around 3:00 PM (PST)/6:00 PM (EST). Occasionally the server is an hour early or late.
Trinity Armory also hosts beta servers, so be sure to look for his server on weekends!

And as always, I will post on this thread whenver a server is up (and change the title).

If you'd like to stay up-to-date with the happening of this mod, feel free to join the Steam Group! -- Nevermind, I haven't been using the Steam group lately (forums work fine for server status anyway).


I am no longer accepting new team members/beta testers.

--Story--

In the year 2042, nuclear power plants became very cheap to build and maintain, thanks to new technological breakthroughs. Before too long, an enormous amount of radioactive waste was generated. Several methods to remove or destroy the waste were attempted, but eventually it was decided that the easiest solution was to seal the radioactive material into vaults buried deep within the earth.

Then several years later, a large cloud of space debris entered the solar system, with a path leading dangerously close to Earth's orbit. Governments scrambled to build bunkers in the ground for people to take refuge in from coming storm. Earth's surface suffered massive damage from the swarm of meteorites, while the human race remained seemingly safe.

Just when the storm began to depart, a new nightmare emerged from the beneath the human's feet. Thousands of huge insects and arachnids, all presumably mutated by the radioactive waste, were angered by the tremors caused by the storm and burst into the bunkers, attacking the humans within. Very few humans escaped the disaster. And so the bug invasion begins!
Super old, please ignore for now.

Mod 5 is a reward to the Beta Testers and developers for all their help.
Also, most Mod 5 bugs are either overpowered, or intended for very specific situations/builds, and are therefore mostly unfit for public release (In my opinion).

Special/Suggested Items/Weapons

-Leaf -- 0%  only certain bugs can use these. In most cases, it will heal the user, except for bugs and mites, in which case the user will not only be healed, but temporally enhanced, and possibly given invincibility for a short amount of time.

-Metal Pole -- 50%  A metal pole with one end broken and sharp. This is a stabing weapon. (Blocko model by ArmyUnit, which is based off of the [HighPoly] model made by iownu424)



--Mod 4 Info--

-Special Mode-
What the Special Mode is= Some of the bugs mentioned in this topic have "nests", like the wasp, termite, and ant. I thought it would be cool to have some kind of escape-the-zombies-prison gamemode, where the ants/wasps/termites take you back to their nest and you would try to escape within a time limit. If all players are captured, the bugs win. If all players escape, the players win. If only some players escape, then the bugs win.

Nests
The ant's nest is a large anthill. It should be big enough to fit about 20 ants and 6 or 7 players.
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a5/Xn_ant_hill.jpg
The termite's nest is a termite mound-thing. It should be more tall then wide, and big enough to fit about 15 termites and 5 players.
http://itech.dickinson.edu/chemistry/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/termite_mound.jpg
The wasp's nest is, well, a wasp nest. It should be big enough to fit about 30 wasps and 10 players.

This is the Special something?


why make a new topic?


why make a new topic?

I wanted to split everything into separate post, to help with organizing, and to make it easier for me to edit/add stuff.
Hopefully I'll be able to shorten this page some.

Congrats Heed! You brought about some good things. :P
Not the only "good things" I will bring about. Expect a post from me again later on.

I had expected something better... /sadfaec

I love the power armour, although it would be better if it was smaller, imo.
