Exterminatus version 9.20 - Release Candidate

This week's release is version 9.20, a candidate for the final version of Exterminatus.  This version includes a fix for the sniper rifle exploit, terminator jump animations for both the loyalist and chaos terminators and more detailed textures for the drop pod model.  



Release Candidate Installer 9.20 ( 1.63gb )

Release Candidate 7Zip 9.20 ( 1.61gb )

All changes since version 9.15 have been rolled up into a single set, ready for release.  There is not patch upgrade from 9.19, this requires a fresh install of EX, replacing the last stable build.

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 Release Candidate
  • If you already have EX, delete it.
  • Run the alpha installer and follow it's instructions.
  • Restart Steam.  You should now see Exterminatus listed in your library.

The ModDB mirrors unlock at 14:00 GMT, if it's busy or not working the installer can be downloaded from 40ksource.com.  Please try the ModDB first.

Tweaks
  • Added detail to the skin of Clay_more's drop pod model.
  • Improved the terminator jump animation, blending jumping with the correct aiming pose.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an exploit where the sniper rifle could be use to snap of 2 shots in very quick succession.

Future Plans
Following the release of Alpha 9.19 the contributors that intended to work on the marine player model overhaul notified the rest of the development team that they will not longer be developing new animations, although models using the existing animation set are a possibility.  

Providing no new issues are found in version 9.20, a long-term, stable, version will be released in mid-December.  I plan to discuss with the EX community scheduling future event, so that the mod does no die completely with this release.

Exterminatus Alpha 9.19

Alpha 9.19 has a new space marine drop pod model, some tweaks and bug fixes.



Installer Alpha 9.19 ( 1.75gb )

Zip Alpha Patch 9.19 (169.84mb )

Please note the patch version can only be used to upgrade from version 9.18 to 9.19.

  • 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 EX alpha, delete it.
  • Run the alpha installer and follow it's instructions.
  • Restart Steam.  You should now see the Exterminatus Alpha listed in your library.

The ModDB mirrors unlock at 12:00 GMT, if it's busy or not working the installer can be downloaded from 40ksource.com.  Please try the ModDB first.

Features
  • Drop Pod model by Clay_more, skins and animations by ChromeAngel.  For use in new maps, eith decoratively or as an objective marker / spawn point.  Skin details are incomplete and expect to be finished by 9.20.
  • New version of the lab map for testing the scale and animations of the Drop Pod.

Tweaks
  • Re-skinned a pillar prop contributed so long ago Iit's author is now lost to time (maybe Nic2).  Can be seen in ex_valley and both versions of city_conflict.
  • Added a imperial terminator jump animation.  Initially terminators did not have the ability to jump, so the model was created without a jump animation.  There is known bug where he doesn't hold his weapon pose while jumping, IMHO this is better than the T-pose jump from previous builds.
  • Tweaks to improve the look of csm_city_conflict.  Added chaos decals, restored the skybox, re-aligned some prop models.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an edge case bug where the Imperium wins by killing all the opposing team and an objective is captured (even if it's the imperials starting objective).

Problems
I (Chromeangel) have attempted to fix the apothecaries missing narcathium jump animation (as the terminator was).  The animation and activity seem to be correct in the model, but for an unknown reason does not get played in-game.

Weekly calls for new contributions have been met with deathly silence since alpha 9.18.  

The new player models promised by Joazzz and announced with the last major release have not been delivered.  They may be held up at the animation phase as Kharos has had trouble with his Source Film Maker files being corrupted.

Hope on the horizon
A player called Krieg has contacted me on the EX Discord and expressed an interest in doing some coding work for EX.  He's never developed a Source mod before and may not even know C++.   He's trying to get started anyway.

Future Plans
Next month I plan to finish the Drop Pod skin and fix up the terminator Jump with weapon aiming.  I will then compile the changes since 9.15 into what will be the final version of EX in the foreseeable future.

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.

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 EX alpha, delete it.
  • Run the alpha installer and follow it's instructions.
  • Restart Steam.  You should now see the Exterminatus Alpha listed in your library.

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.
  • Added 5 extra points of fire resistance to terminator armour.

Bug Fixes
  • Updated Announcer system logic to give correct announcements for victory and defeat.
  • Regenerated the sound cache to address some weird blips, pops as screeches in sound playback.
