    Post Sven Co-op 4.5 Release Countdown

    As usual, became busy with development and wasn't able to write all the news posts I'd intended :/. Here's some random information, just quickly:

       

    As you probably read, we joked about Sven Co-op 4.1 being delayed & renamed to Sven Co-op 6.0 in the previous news. After posting that, however, we started thinking about it... and, after a discussion... actually ended up deciding to genuinely rename this release Sven Co-op 4.5 . There really have been a lot of changes for an increment of three hundredths (4.07 + 0.03 = 4.1), and we figured, why break our long-standing tradition of skipping version numbers?

    So it's Sven Co-op v4.5 now. Apologies for crying wolf earlier.


    We also mentioned two new weapons in the last news update. The first is of course the Shockroach. It was coded primarily by g1l, and works a bit differently from the Opposing Force version. In particular, it has a secondary fire mode now. g1l also added the "new monster ability", by the way.

       

    The other second new weapon is the Sporelauncher. It functions as a grenade-launcher in Sven Co-op, and was coded by Sniper and AdamR (who has also added the ammo-generating Spore Plants).

    I'll try to post some information on the new mapping features before the release. While you're waiting, you might as well try Tower of Heaven.


    After today, we can no longer guarantee that donations will be in time to receive the bonus features in this release. If you do donate, make sure to send your Steam ID (e.g. STEAM_0:1:2345) with or immediately after the donation in order to have a chance.

    This thread is a lie.

    EDIT: When is that one feature being implemented so that donor features could be unlocked on the go without having to release a whole spanking patch?

    EDIT2: News flash in 2 years: SEVEN KEWP v9.4

    Yeah, I love random information!
    Umm, what do you mean by "new monster ability," or is that some kind of secret?

    It's not that it's an huge secret or anything, so don't expect anything big, but we thought it might be good as a surprise. Also, this way we can sneak away before the lynch mob forms.

    Re: Sven Co-op 4.5 Release Countdown

    hmm

    anyone remember in 2001 when sniper didn't want to add op4 guns due to regular half-life weaponry doing the job

    (deagle = magnum)
    (saw = mp5)
    (shockroach = hornetgun)
    (sporelauncher = rpg)

    Anyway, good stuff

    My guess is that it'll come out today or tomorrow. 4.07 came out 2 days after the deadline for donations. Either that or 12 days from the original post (the difference between the donation deadline for 4.0 and its release) :P I think that was delayed so it would be out on Christmas though.

    Will be a bit longer than that, I'm afraid. Final testing turned up some last-minute bugs, and we've been busy with those.

    Hmm, a Christmas release does sound nice, now that you mention it...

    23: making them as separate "gamemodes" would be alot harder than doing the entity layout yourself

    also isnt christmas pretty dang delayed, that sounds more opportune for 4.6 in my view

    Re: Sven Co-op 4.5 Release Countdown

    I think most of the game modes will be possible in 4.5. Defense is already possible, VIP as well. Not sure about assault, but it probably is possible already.

    Then there was a fourth, which one was that?

    The four game modes are Rush, Invasion, VIP and Assault. Others are possible.
