    Post Awful News

    Our market research company has just informed us of a terrible mistake. Due to an error, we were actually provided with the research data for an alpha version of Crysis 3 instead of for Sven Co-op! Our own results showed that ten out of ten focus group members rated Sven Co-op as "the pinnacle of perfection", while nine out of ten described themselves as "moderately likely" to "hunt the developers down" if anything was changed. Due to this mix-up, all plans based on the erroneous research data (including all changes announced on the 1st of April) have been cancelled. We sincerely apologise for any confusion caused.

    Unfortunately, all this has meant that the US$14 million in donation money (plus $7.50 of our own personal funds) spent on market research was completely wasted. In an attempt to rebuild some of our capital, we will now start selling in-game hats at real-hat prices. We trust players will appreciate the added realism.

    I'm disappoint at the "in-game" hats (lol).
    I would seriously buy a real hat at real-hat prices.

    What!?! Hats!?! That's very strange & not Sven - co-op-ish! This game is a mod,not a indie game! If they continue to add to buy stuff (Not just hats,but Weapons! ),they should make it then a completely STAND - ALONE GAME!
    I fought that the news about that the game returns AGAIN to it's BORING black mesa content & there will be NO more custom map sorts like that Toon run,or Resident evil,or even the Sven - co-op community project ( Which STILL works on the 2nd part ) - They hunger,but this just piss me off
    Atleast if your gonna add hat system & maybe weapon system,add an free way to earn hats & weapons! Not just payment! Like a hat "Chumtoad attacks!" - kill 100 NPC (allies,neutral & hostile ) with your chumtoad.
    Reward: Laying chumtoad on head ( which is hat ) + achievement " Chumtoad attacks! "
    im just confuesed about these new changes,but im sad too that you did a accident & wasted 14 000 000 $!

    but on the happy sign,i hatted the Super high defenition pack & now we return to the low - definition pack,but here's an idea to add to options - Definition pack. With this options you select from the original (Low) definition pack ( half life 1.5 or half life 1.6),the High definition pack from the pack " Blue Shift ",or the SUPER high definition pack from Sven - coop 4.0.
    After you selected your definition pack,you select which character to be & what skins ( MODELS ) to use for your weapons,like for low definition pack you can choose the Gordon,Barney,Sientist,Soldier or Male Assasin pack for V_models,P_models & W_models.
    Or Shortly - Add definition pack choosing option,Player option,which contains - Player model, Specialized weapons,hands & others.

    + to sell Virtual hats for real hat price doesn't sound even good idea. Hats could be like 10$ & you want to give 10$ for a virtual hat,which can be deleted at the next time you Reinstall Sven - coop & Half life!
    Virtual hats should be sold for maybe atleast 1$
    weapons for 5$ & others.In other words,Hats should be sold for atleat 1$,Weapons - atleast 2,3,4 or 5$,Add an option " choose definition pack ","choose player" option,which chooses : Players,Models for weapons,The Weapons,hat arsenal & what special ability to have,Just like in the TF2 or TF classes & ways to earn items ( Hat + Weapons ) from Achievement ( add achievement system ) not just to buy hats,but you could earn them for FREE! like you can get your first hat for free "Now collegian" or "school leaver".
    To earn achievement - Finish the Training course ( Add Sven co-op training course )
    Reward : Diploma ( Weapon,which does much lower damage than Crowbar,fast as crowbar ) ,School Leaver's hat + a class ( player ) - college student,which is littler than the original players like gordon,which gives hime much bigger chances to get into much smaller vents,has got lots of inteligent which helps in some missions,health: 75 HP , Maximum armor : 25 AP.

    Counter Strike and Half Life are completly different savi

    BTW DO NOT ADD ACHIEVEMENTS, can't stand them.
    I can understand a ranked ladder but OMG I HIT A ROCK WITH A CROWBAR 100 TIMES awards are just stupid and add nothing to the gameplay
