Server Upgrade


BuildAndShoot.com has moved to a faster dedicated server! It is now hosted from an unshared dual quad core Intel Xeon with 24GB memory on a dedicated data center network port in Las Vegas, NV, USA. Speed and uptime should be noticeably better!

New Forum Icons


As many of you have already noticed we have acquired some new icons for the modding section. Big thanks to SpaceVixen for the creation of these great new icons.

OpenSpades - tspd aka Topo's branch


Image

tspd is a branch of OpenSpades focused on smooth competitive gameplay. Mouse sensitivity and acceleration code has been replaced by ioquake3's code. Hitbeep sounds are added to indicate when you shot hit another player. Added the ability to hide all chat by press u and options to filter only teamchat and server messages.

Stackoverflow Receives Death Threats for not Delivering Authing


Mmmm, can you smell that? neither can we... however, that is the smell of progress! I don't think I speak for myself on this topic, regardless I think the game changing feature will see the light of day some time soon. Stack has been working 40 hours a week on authenticating, may all the hacks be tamed. We are all ecstatic to finally have authing' in season four of the leagues!

Uh nice newsletter, but tbh I'm really disappointed that we're using these icons, which are extremely poor in taste compared to the original ones imo. No offense.

Why don't you just add different themes, so instead of:

Blue Master Race
Green Master Race
Neutral

It could be:

Blue Master Race - Kuma
Green Master Race - Kuma
Neutral - Kuma
Blue Master Race - SpaceVixen
Green Master Race - SpaceVixen
Neutral - SpaceVixen

The New Icons are good, but I don't think they are much better than the old ones.
