What would they show us that isn't already in the beta, unless you just want to throw them in as bonus material.

I give to you the most awesome development in chainsaw technology yet: The Rocket Propelled Chainsaw
What about a rocket launcher that launches a rocket which dispenses small chainsaws over a large area?

Or maybe a Juggernaut which launches chainsaw wielding drones which also fire small chainsaw rockets at the enemy?

[A long chain of ideas, each more ridiculous than the last...]

...and then we could make it shoot darts with micro-chainsaws which are injected into the enemy, and then tear up it's insides on a cellular level!

Factor in a ballistic trans-atmospheric Juggernaut, and re-entry drones, and there's your MIRV.

Or we could break a treaty or two and go with a FOB type system, which is what I imagine North Korea is working on. Better keep an eye out for any illegal shipments of chainsaw technology from Husqvarna... Come to think of it, isn't Sweden one of the few countries that keeps regular diplomatic relations with them?... It all gets curiouser and curiouser....

In any case, I'm sure nobody wants to get FOC'd by any rogue nations! FOC'ers like those guys should just go and FOC themselves, really.

Ending??? I like all these random ideas. Shame you can't put in more than 9 weapons without extensive coding.
I'm going to upload the 0.2 beta tommorow, i've finished bug checking etc! I can't upload to simplici7y for some reason. Safari, IE and Firefox all crash when I try to upload it. I will use a different computer. :D
I'm going to upload some more screenshots soon to, so keep watching!!

I like the new AR although it would be preferable if it was closer to the center of the screen so that the player looks down the site instead of looking at the end of it.

Its alright to use it to test with, just don't include it in the beta unless you get permission from the creators of Rubicon. Anyways its cool to see ITS will have weather effects in it.

I thought they'd be a hit. I'm almost finished on my AR, and that will be in the beta.

Although I don't know how reachable CLund or Scott Brown are anymore. One of the older guys around here is probably your best bet of contacting them because the 2 contact links they provide at the Rubicon site are both duds; CLund 404's, and Scott's site has been under renovation for quite some time.

On a second note, where did you dig up the older Rubicon at? I'm having a dickens of a time trying to find all the old resources that seem to have disappeared for Rubicon, with the exception of the old Spoiler Guide.

Typing "Rubicon" into Fileball's search brings up 1.0:

Or are you looking for some pre-release version?

My mistake, I'd forgotten about software rendering mode. I'm used to seeing the much higher resolution and crisper weapon sprites from Rubicon. The older Rubicon use to use the much more pixelated weapon sprites, etc also and it gave me the false impression you had access to the original.

@TL: Thanks for the suggestion, I hadn't even thought to look in there.

I couldn't help noticing how grainy your health bars were looking. Just like any other thing in Anvil, they can have high res replacements, but you must orient them 90 degrees in order for them to work right.

Ah, on closer inspection it is indeed my water. The resolution of the screenshots are kind of small, so it wasn't apparent at first. Good on you for using it well. I might suggest that you go into the MML and increase the opacity just a touch though.

It also looks a bit gray. Did you do that? It fits well with the overall desaturated look of the textures you're using. If you want, I can make changes to the original super-high-res master and make a custom water for you. I can make it more turbulent, or more smooth, maybe tweak the color just right for your purposes.
