I've been dieing, I mean playing redspot off and on for the past three days now, heh, mostly dieing, getting a kill in from time to time. But mostly learning the game and how to use it to where I can know what I'm doing.

Firstly whose ever idea it was to finally set up a newbie time limit when you start the game, or first spawned or whatever, thanks a freakin' ton!
smile

I'm also really glad I can turn off the in-game chat, but maybe another possible toggle could be the ability to turn off death messages? That way if its off, you won't get what some people call "a childish sound" when someone dies. The whole bit would be gagged.

Thanks for the fun time I've spent online dieing. Some of you guys are just freakin' crazy deadly. rofl

I actually still am, as well. And I don't know how the admin team feels about this, but I think going linkdead to try to evade a stun (Please note that it didn't even work because it was quietly fixed before I did it) is to me a relatively small offense compared to some of the things other people were doing the least of which impersonating admins and such.

hmmm, depends what Sam calls strong afenders. I think that inpersination falls into that kind of category.
How ever, storm is back on it, And I know that he was banned. also someone knowen as juliantheaudiogamer also got unbanned.
Personally, as sadly with all updates, this also got boring. And sadly it seems that redspot still has, and will always, have that stupid player base who eather are immature so they cant stand dying, or have to take use of all o there power. No, I am afrade that nobody cant help it.
And, thanks for adding this newbie system, only one who is angry is someone from uka, btw suicide bombs can kill newbies, and I think that other types of bombs work on them as well.

Yes, any kind of items that are not the normal control key to fire will get past the newbie timer. Sam might want to have a look at it.

I agree. Change it. I had to take a break for a while because I kept dying and hearing that awfull noise.

Even though I agree if you have the newbie flag you shouldn't be able to use bombs unless you wanna turn that off, or forfit your 20 minutes. But things that are useable like spring boots and various items that can still be acted upon should remain that way.
And heh, I don't care about the dieing sound, you shouldn't be hearing it that often to get that sick of it.
but anyway, what I was referring to was the death messages when someone else dies, its just pretty lengthy and spammy.  That'd be great, and much appreciated if you  can set up a toggle for gagging that. Maybe have it as a slash command like, /deathgag.
smile

Also, why are some people not trackable? I hit T then enter on the first player for example, then hit W and I get the message that that player isn't trackable. is that because of their newbie flag? If so, maybe they shouldn't be in the tracking menu at all? Not sure what that was about.

Thanks!

guys, this system will get fixes but just got to be pationt. and the reason that newbies can et killed with bombs is cuz otherwise they would keep blowing up bombs and noone would be able to stop them until it's too late.
this isn't a perfect system guys and i'm the first one to agree that it needs serious fixing and it iwll be fixed

maybe things like baracade bombs can hert them, but things like suicide bombs, timebombs, hand grenades, etc. I think that those things shouldn't effect the newbies in the leest.About the dying sound, just press enter and it should be skipped, and about death messages, just press ctrl to silence them, and anyway they aren't 100000 chars so they crash your sinf. And, I manage to dy a haph an hour and heering that over and over again, over all it sometimes gives me the settisfaction like I didn't dy, but Sam did. lol

@biggun if newbies would be protected against those bombs, how would people with a base be able to defend their base? If we can't defend a base because of the newbie protection, that would not make much sence at al. This could be abused very much.
Think about it closely. People with newbie flags could just be like hey, a base with bombs, lets blow them into bits for another none more healthier player and there you go. BOOM.

this is exactly why the placed explosives which are barricade bombs, missiles and dynamite should be able to bypass the newbie flag, but items you normally place during a fight such as time bombs or grenades or whatever shouldn't work on them.

and if they by passes those bombs. those newbs would be able to walk right to a base and start lockpicking when noone is online with no efford. woul'd that be better? would you like that more?
nope. in my opinion this system isn't going to work at all as redspot is right now. the only way it could work is if you make it so people with the newbie flag on won't be able to use certain items and walk up to a base

I sort of think the map is too big now. I think it was too big in the last version. Granted more people are playing now, but I think there's far too much room and at times there are only like ten players online. Another thing: I propose bringing the old item sound back. I can barely hear the new one, and even if you're right on top of it, it sounds as though it's still a while away.

One thing that I'm seeing as a problem is that shields spawn less often anywhere on the map. Even if they were to spawn in the sky life vessel along with the health upgrades, that'd be fine.  But it's very hard to protect yourself when sshields aren't spawning.

I agree about the shields. Maybe instead of upping the percentage of shields make bullet proof vest that do basically the same thing as an alternate way to protect yourself. Then we could have both, and I think vests seem more in line with this FPS anyway, but whichever. lol

Yeah, I like that idea!

The Beast adopted new raiment and studied the ways of Time and Space and Light and the Flow of energy through the Universe. From its studies, the Beast fashioned new structures from oxidised metal and proclaimed their glories. And the Beast’s followers rejoiced, finding renewed purpose in these teachings.

the death sound needs to be changed, also grunting in pain sounds should be added when you get shot or shoot someone, makes it cooler.

oh ah yeah, that's should be an armor or a vest, not a shield, haha
shield is the one you hold on your hand, not wearing it. so it's wierd to wield a shield and a gun, right? . well except that futuristic/scifi/magic type of shield.
stw too, the shield more sounds like  an armor big_smile

Hi.
While playing a bit, I noticed some  things that I would like to see added or modified, or maybe you already have those things on your list?
I personally think that the inventory needs a filtering system, when you hit I to open it, you have a lot of things like weapons, ammo and such and you have to look through everything to find an item.
I would like to have a system like in manamon where you have different categories of items which you can switch between with the left and right arrow and move through the categories with the up and down arrow.
As I said in a previous post, I would like to see certain messages beeing able to turn them off or on, like death messages, online or offline messages, chat, you no what I mean.
BTW, do you guys use the 3D sound system or the original one? I have huge problems locating the others on the map when they are near me.
Also, I know, this sounds noobish of some sorts, but do you have some tips for evading? I try jumping away, but it seams that the other player is always hitting me and upon me in seconds, without me beeing able to react. This is especially bad with weapons like that long bareled machinegun, which apparently takes over 2000 health in a fraction of a second, happened to me yesturday.
Greetings Moritz.

I had one thought while playing the game last night: If you're going to have a map that big... make bikes a starting item.

I have all reddy said the disadvantages of starting items. People will then ask, Heym ket's start with 5000 health, 20 shielded shots, x storred aer etc. Bullet vests sound cool, that's what I have suggested in this same topic I think. About the long barreled machinegun, I just try to get out of it's path. And yeah, it's quite powerfull. ANd, is this just me or do item grabbers spawn all most never? I can hardly find any of them some times.

Come to think of it, I think the map itself is what's lagging the sergher. I think it takes almost ten seconds or more to log in and when I'm coming out of my base it's the same way, but when going into a base, it's just like that. (Insert finger snap here.) So if you could divide the map into whole separate ones, I feel it would go faster. Then again, I'm no coder so I know nothing.
