Exterminatus Alpha 9.18 - Late release notes

Alpha 9.18 features new voice work to the spacemarines and chaos space marines when they are injured.  Added new chaos version of the city conflict map.  Updated ex_city_contflct, ex_bunker and csm_thunderhawk with the default timer flag, so they should get announcements of their time limits.

This news post was delayed due to a server upgrade that went awry.  The actual release was on 22/09/2018



Installer Alpha 9.18 ( 1.73gb )

Zip Alpha Patch 9.18 ( 202.7mb )

Please note the patch version can only be used to upgrade from version 9.17 to 9.18.

Features
  • Players will make pain noises when there health drops below 90%, 50% and 10%.  Uses sounds recorded by Bulkwark and edited by Dontask4470.  This feature uses the same rate limiter as battle cries, so by design they don't always play.
  • New chaos version of city conflict by Dark Marine called csm_city_conflict.   This will mess with the heads of veteran players Tongue

Tweaks
  • Updated ex_city_conflict, ex_bunker and csm_thunderhawk with the default timer flag.

Bug Fixes
