Forum Updates


We officially launched version 2 of the site theme. There are 14 choices to choose from including all the original 3 version 1 themes. Light Blue is the new default theme. We have also changed the structure of the index page slightly. We have changed the icons and gave OpenSpades a higher position on the forum index above indie projects and 1.x AoS.

New Scripts


Big Blocks
by a_girl

Big Blocks, as you might have guessed, let’s you place blocks larger than 1x1x1. It actually places 8 blocks in one click in a 2x2x2 configuration. Click and drag creates a 2x2x6 structure. And of course grenade damage has been increased allowing for more blocks to be removed from a single blast.

Water Color

Water Color changes the color of the water in game. It is simple script but it allows hosters one more thing to customize to their choosing.

Smash Off
by Morphman

Image

Smash Off converts bullet damage into knockback effects. You no longer die from being shot. You die from being rocketed off the platform you are fighting on and flying into the water at high speeds.

Isle7
by LostMotel

Isle7 is another terrain map made using the L3DT software. It has a lot of mountains and low points on the map making it similar to classicgen in a few ways. LostMotel has also made some new trees for the map that make it look really nice. The only problem is the map is really big so a server hosting the map needs a decent number of players for there to be any action. The map works great for CTF though, just imagine all the forts on the mountains and the tunnel rats underground. LostMotel also showed off his turntable rendering. Good job LostMotel!

SeoulMetro
by kmsi

SeoulMetro is an underground map based around a metro. The maps design is something you don't see often. On the sides you have these really open sections with not much over while the middle is CQC with the inside of two trains as cover. The middle would be full of SMGs and shotguns while the sides would have mostly sniper battles.If players from the mid went into the sides you would get snipped. So we have a unique balance of play-styles. Another neat thing about the layout is the spawns, They are set up similar to chivalry. You have a small platform for your team but once you get off it you can't get back up; this also means that the enemy can't really camp you unless they use nades. Overall it is a neat map though the sides need more cover. Currently hosted on the aloha.pk EU CTF server. Good job kmsi!

Nice. Love that map from lostmotel and SeoulSubway looks really fun too.

And I believe the scores were confirmed late late last night while I slumbered. I'll let dan announce them (just to keep y'all in suspense).

You had to post in the "3'rd Anniversary" thread, which is now locked. So I guess you don't get one.
