    Well, we'd like to get a group of people who like the mod together to test version 3 and help iron out any remaining faults, basically. We're not sure when we'll have a test version ready, but if you'd like to help make this thing perfect when it goes for a public release, then please help do so! :)

    To entice you, the list of features new to v3 are:

    * Over 30 maps in total.

    * Tons of new monsters to replace the old boring ones, including "turncoat" soldiers which will use shock rifles, rocket launchers and so on.

    * Boss maps! On the final wave (by default it's wave 8) of the maps prefixed with BOSS, a boss will be spawned with 20000 health, and as a team it's your job to take it down to win the match. Some are huge, some are just plain big, but their attacks do a lot of damage.

    * New weapons and revamped old weapons (eg the flare launcher and mini rocket launcher) - new weapons include the Howitzer, Pistols, Shotgun, Singularity cannon, Radiant Grenade Launcher and Widowmaker.

    * Reduced health and shield points from previous versions - you start with 200 health and can collect up to 500 and you can have a max of 200 shield points. This deters you from becoming a one man fighting machine and steers you more in the direction of working as a team.

    * Objective based maps! 2 "assault" maps of this kind - DesertAssault and MountainTrogg, where you have to complete a series of objectives while coming under attack from the monsters to win the match, and 2 "defence" maps - Underground and Fortress, where you must stop monsters from reaching a certain point otherwise you will lose the match.

    There are quite a few other changes, but in true Fraghouse style, we've gone and, er, forgotten them.. :shy:

    However, I can give you a list of the new monsters which you'll be facing:

    * Ghost - Almost invisible to the naked eye, you can usually spot this monster by a yellow "swooping" dot on your radar and the ambient sound it produces. By the time it's on you, unless you keep a keen eye open, it's probably too late..

    * Guardian - A Xan-style robot which wields a rocket launcher and will have no second thoughts about blowing you sky-high with it.

    * Ictus - An evolution of the Skaarj, the Ictus can fly, and they fire extremely fast rockets from both of their hands. If you're lucky, you can hear the rockets just whizz past you.

    * Maphorus - Thought the Manta were just plain dull and annoying? Check out their blood-red relatives - faster, stronger and ten times more annoying. Yikes.

    * Sand man - Straight from Egypt, these guys. They run straight up to you and head-on attack you until you're dead. Fancy dodging is the order of the day here, because they love slow players.

    * Turncoat - A genetically-morphed human which carries a shock rifle around with you. They have been brainwashed to fight for the monster side, so show them the tip of your turbo laser.

    * Skeleton - No, these aren't sexually depressed.. instead, they'll run straight up to you and smash you to pieces.

    * Solid Shot - Like the turncoats, these guys were previously human. They carry lightning guns and love to head hunt.

    * Spider - Bored of the Pupae? How about some spider mines instead? Yep.

    * Trogg - A ground-based Skaarj that wields its fists at you and nothing else. It's more deadly than it sounds.

    * Zombie - Rather like the Trogg in most aspects, another melee-based fighter. It's a bit slower, but takes more killing.

    ---

    If you are interested in testing, please reply below stating so. :)

    Wow, some of you guys actually signed up on the forum for the first time to get in on this offer!?!

    I'm willing to help. I can setup a dedicated server under Linux, and test play.
    Can't help with anything that might require mapping knowledge though.
    Let me know when you're ready.
