Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Yeah, I'm kinda surprised they didn't have the foresight to turn on preloading for a free 2.5gb game.

    Well, if it's a Source game, some of it will already be downloaded if you have any Source game installed.

    And 2.5GB isn't that much by today's standards.

    Reading is apparently not my strong point.

    Any veterans wanna give us noobs a breakdown of the old classes and some of their perks? I imagine the sequel will be using a similar system.

    While I'm not a vet due to only playing it today, the game is pretty straightforward. 4 classes explosives, special weapons, medic and tech. Explosives class is the only one who can set proximity mines, these explode into a line of fire once tripped. Special weapons are the only ones who can use the autogun, it auto aims if your cursor is near any aliens and has pretty good damage.

    Medics are the only ones who can use full med packs that are multi-use, but every class can equip a one time use med pack that can only be used on themselves. Techs can hack computers to activate turrets or open doors. Their is a tool that will allow any class to open a locked door, but it takes longer and you would lose that item slot. Techs also get to use a special prototype assault rifle if they choose to. And of course you have the item that only the sarge can equip in the usable item slot. That item is a cigar, and it turns you into a god damn sexual tyrannosaurus.

    It's been a long time since I've played, but with a little googling to refresh my memory, I think this is mostly right about the basics.
    Spoiler:

    You also had stats that could level up in campaign as the character earned experience. Movement affected your speed and reload rate, health affected the obvious, special affected whatever that character's role was (amount healed by medics, autogun damage, hack speed, something explosive probably), accuracy increased damage with most weapons. If a facehugger gets one of your marines, they'll become infested, losing health quickly and exploding with more alien facehuggers when they die, so it's best to take out eggs quickly or before getting near (causing them to hatch), and to beware of vents which they'll pop out of often. You want balanced roles usually, as medics are obviously useful and some missions require hacking to complete, and using the same crew consistently means they'll be more experienced and therefore tougher (although I often dropped officer and went with two autogunners in SP). If someone died, they were Dead. There was some mechanic where merely injured characters would sit out a mission, but I can't remember details. Moving cautiously and having the squad cover all angles was important because aliens would attack from any direction.

    Thinking of all this makes me want to reinstall UT2k4 just for this, but I'll hold out for tomorrow, at long last.

    Aliens in 10 minutes as a rap song apparently. To get people in the mood and also give a bit of background of where all these aliens games draw their inspiration from. I hope they didn't get rid of the chest-bursting infestations from the original mod. :D

    Anxiously awaiting both playing (...dying) and struggling (...failing) to mod this game. Sorry, in advance, for my horrible aim... I'm going to play a medic to make up for it.

    If anyone has a free moment, can you shoot me an invite.

    Edit: Thank you....Quite fast for 3:50 in the morning... Hah.

    I just read that the Source engine in AS eventually ended up in Portal 2. Which sounds interesting, because Portal too benefits from a tile-based map system.
