Forging ahead with Alpha 8.14B

Alpha 8.14B includes an improved version of ex_m, now called ex_forge, an improved version of the tyranid player model, new ambient sounds  and all new marine battle cries.  This is a B patch as none of the code has changed, just mod assets.

The FTP is on the blink again, so i'm relying on ModDB to authorise and distribute this version.

Install the Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer
  • Navigate to the "Tools" section on your Steam games "Library"
  • Install the "Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer"
  • Run the Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer at least once.
  • You can exit once the menu has finished loading.

Install the latest Exterminatus Alpha
  • If you already have a copy of the EX alpha, delete it.
  • Run the alpha installer and follow it's instructions.
  • Restart Steam.  You should now see both the Exterminatus Beta 8 and Exterminatus Alpha listed in your library.

Bugfix
  • Tyranid warrior's left arms are no longer inside out.  The player model has been rebuilt with better proportions and all new animations to fix this bug. Expect problems with the ragdoll.

Tweaks
  • Four new marine battlecries recorded by Stormwolf 597
  • ex_m has been renamed to ex_forge, now with more lighting, more vent landmarks, textures and soundscapes.
  • New industrial sound effects and soundscapes for ex_forge made by DontAsk.
  • Jump packs, now have a normal map to add additional detail to their textures.
  • Revised Landraider and Rhino normal maps.

I am continuing to re-work the chapter packs to cope with Blood Ravens being the new default chapter.  Two more chapters are done:

About Exterminatus

Two teams/species featured in the first version of EX are the Imperium of Man (represented by tactical marines of Ultramarines chapter of the Adeptus Astartes) and Tyranid Hive Mind (represendted by creatures of Hive Fleet Behemoth).

Each map plays through a series of objectives, capturing the final objective delivers victory to your team. Players that do well in combat or by capturing objectives are rewarded with the option to play better classes. Each team has five playable classes, each with their own weapons and play style.


More information about the gameplay of EX can be found in the player manual we are writing. If you have any questions please feel free to post them on the EX forum.
