I encountered a small problem that I'm sure could be fixed:

The torn body doesn't appear to be reacting to gravity in the right way it should.

This is just a minor detail that I wanted to let you developers know about; sorry if this has been posted already.

Just want to make this mod as perfect as it can be for release!

That usually happens because the corpse isn't moving fast enough for a few seconds, and it enters sleep mode so the server won't have to simulate the ragdolls every frame.

That, or some other bug. :p

SHIT!!!!!

I thought b5 was out, and I was looking at that pic and saying, the new skybox on discovery is nice... wait thats the same one...

And just now i realised I dreamt b5 came out last night. poop

As for the ragdolls, they freeze (stop moving) sometimes, just slash it and it will fall.

I'm a fan of the new sewers. Seems more "sewery".

NO LEAKAGE! :p The only new maps I'm not instantly slain by are sewers and the stalkyard remake. With stalkyard its because I love and know the old version so much and any change for now at least will seem like a close second. With sewers I can't quite put my finger on it yet. All will be revealed though when B5 multiplayer testing REALLY kicks off.

My doubts are nothing to do with aesthetics. Aesthetically, the game has never looked more professional. You could drop some of the maps into any dark retail game and you really wouldn't even blink. To be honest, I haven't blinked whilst testing them because I don't want to miss a second :D

Hats off to the team.

How many and which of the maps are now in HDR?

All of them. All have been re-lit and HDR-ed, some have had 'other additions' for fun. Testing will decide whether they stay or not. I'll bang revised pictures of them all up on Media in due time...

Sewers is going to play differently, I think... given the look of things as they are, the marines are going to have to work a little harder. More perches, more darkness, less water.

Are we allowed to post screenshots?

Damn it- its starting to sound like the Christmas present I always wanted but never got, especially about the new sewers. will it still keep the same name?

Stalkyard vents out?

Paegus

yes stalkyard has no vents.

We'll have to go through playtesting to see if stalkyard plays the same or better, but damn, it IS pretty.

..hell, you've seen the screenshots on the front page (with Ging's ridiculous levels of bloom) ;)

Are there any other changes to stalkyard, bar its ventlessness?

Felf

are the hidden-only vents near the IRIS spawn still there? I liked them, and not too many people knew about them - there was never any campage in them *felford cries for the thought that they're gone*

Also, I can't remember if i've asked this before, but what does colour correction do?

Nothing, yet. While apparently the team has the files ready to go, the Source SDK doesn't give modders access.

What it does do when it works is gives modders the ability to change how colours are put into the game on a global basis. For instance, if so desired you could create a greyscale (or maybe just desaturated) world where red is the only saturated colour.

It's primarily a way for modders to control atmosphere.
