    Shorter human needs timer? Force them to hurry to their need making them scatter?

    It could work, but assuming you are playing on Outpost and happen to be at the opposite end of the map to where you need to be. How long would it take to run there assuming you know the fastest route?

    I'd say take that and add at least 30 seconds. Maybe even a minute.

    Edit:

    Assuming I did change the map to work with the newest version, what changes would I actually need to make?

    The timer for host is already at 300 seconds (5min) in the release.

    Ok I go back working on it when we have a server. Because I can't host. So no hosting no testing. No testing no programming.

    Do not trust Nofearkid, his last community he was "Kicked" out of was TheZoneRP.net hosting the no longer existant "Zone Script" a STALKER RP game mode. He was kicked out for trying to steal there latest script "Zone Script 2" and release it to public or keep it for himself. So yeah...

    Oh RP dramatards. What will you do next? Anyway I'm already hosting this and were working on a new version. So I'll be sure to ban you when you join.

    I am currently bringing up a home server with parasite on it. It should be up within the hour. I plan to run it on the weekends.

    IP:68.5.25.76:27015

    Edit: I got it running, but I noticed a few bugs. If the host leaves the game, the round doesn't reset itself. Also, the timer seems to be perpetually stuck at 10 minutes.

    Well I run the official one. But were working on version 2.0. If you want to help beta test it, we have some stuff to show and test, PM me and ask for my steam friends, and we can talk.

    Maybe because the last guy he worked with liked to think of himself as god?

    Don't forget to tell them who owns the servers and runs the community.

    Ok as you know this version was barely playable , because I didn't test it on a server.

    BUT , the good new is that I'm still working on a new version , and found testing ground. When I'm sure the version is ok , I'll post it here.

    There will be a private community server hosting this gamemode soon ...

    Edit:

    We will need para_outpost to be updated .

    [QUOTE=I think an antlion model will be MUCH better for the aliens than the stupid zombies.
    .[/QUOTE]

    Or maybe the Parasite model? From the movie Cloverfield. THose things would scare the hell outa me if I saw one in real life. WHy not implant it into this gamemode? (And continue work ON the gamemode period)

    Anyway, I love this gamemode ALOT and wish it were a real game. I can only find 1 server with it and I know if there was an update, many more servers will run it.

    I finally decided to release the last development version. It has been tested a bit , so it should be ok. But I'm not sure all the features will be ok (like tk complaint system).

    Anyway , it's playable , unlike the previous version.

    Edit:

    I'm having "tickrate issues" on this server. It's like I get only 10 tick per seconds. It's unplayable.

    This server is using last version , and seems to be ok (NOW):
    68.2.104.104:27015

    But it's not using para_spaceship_v8 , which is the only map with a shop. So you start with 100 bullets , and you can't buy more !

    Hi ickylevel, I currently run your gamemode on my server, and its on 25/7 at the P address 10.0.1.2:27015. And I do really love the game play, and the movie "The Thing". the server is up 24/7 unless i have to update or something (it's a newer server, but seems to be lag free, had up to 20 players on it, and was never reported any lag) So come play anytime! I have maps outpostnorth and spaceship. as well as the other 2, but they can be glitchy at times.

    EDIT: oh apparently the server you stated 68.2.104.104:27015
    is my server lol. Thanks for noticing! lol

    Nice to see you joined this forum just to post. I forgot to implement map changes in the last version. I'll do it this weekend but for the moment you should set the map to para_spaceship , because it's the only map fully compatible with this version. Otherwise you won't be able to buy ammos .

    Edit:

    One tell me that you could take an alien host weapon on the floor as human and use it to turn into alien. Here is a small hotfix for that :

    Unzip it to your gamemode directory , overriding scripts (this is not the full gamemode).

    Thank you very much for that fix, its been troubling my server alot lately. the only way to win the game if a human picked it up was to /kill him. Thanks again!

    Hey, i'm in need of some help within this gamemode .. well here it goes:

    I used to host it a few months ago, but it seems to be far different now. The version i used to play had a robot, the alien was stronger ( he's just too weak on 0.49 though ) and the hud was different, apart from other stuff ( more console commands, etc ). Well, what i would like to know is which version was that ? Does anybody knows ?

    I no longer have this version. It will be almost impossible for you to find it.

    I think the current version is better. Sure damages are still to be tweaked but it's a real evolution.

    One bug I noticed is that when using the disarm level 2 ability, not only can't you use the ability again for a short time, but you also cannot use the standard swing attack during that time. And this ability does not work when in human form, though the description says it does.

    I gotta say though, I'm loving this new version. I thought the ammo system would be annoying, but it's actually very subtle. The only time I ran out of ammo, I had killed a swarm of spawns and one host while the other host hid from me, then my gun went *click click* and I panicked and sprinted all the way across the map to the shop, hoping the host didn't know I was empty. It ended in an epic standoff back at the shop, one of the best matches I've played.

    Shop and needs are brush based. The rest is point based.
