I'd like to know before I make more maps/script.

EDIT: nevermind question 2 i've figured out how to make the best options work together.

Xyfbzi, if you ever played counter-strike:source, you'll know the pain of selecting every weapons and being killed while doing so.


So, I'd choose an alien and stick with it for the rest of the game.

I'd say let the player choose their alien every round. If someone wants to be the same alien the next time they respawn, they can just choose it again.

well in the mode where you select every round, teh selecting is done in a sealed room; nobody in this room can attack, not even with fists.
once you select an alien, you only have one weapon - what that alien does. There's no switching while being vulnerable.
is that what you were saying? because you didn't use good grammar and i barely understood you.

Well, if the aliens are the marathon aliens, then you could why do they all have to be a uniform size? There are ways to make the actual size of different players change. For example, a pfhor fighter should be a different size that say, a hulk or juggernaut.

I agree that you should be able to choose every round, but I'm not sure if that is possible to be used in conjuction with the method that allows for changing individual player size, since that would be very similar to how the different classes in AORPG were chosen.
If it's tourist season, why can't we shoot them?
