    2/10

    Due to a few issues, CNC has been removed from Public Test for the time being. The server now rotates both games modes and maps. TDM, Rabbit, Team Rabbit, CTF, Hunters, and FCNC will be part of the rotation. Currently only Elegiac and Sanctuary support the Engineer core, though more maps are now available to test the other cores (Dodge, Boost, Shield, etc).

    2/19

    - major Dodge core overhaul.. visuals completely changed as well as 'feel'. No longer returns you to your old speed/direction when finished. The new orb you turn into has its own physics for that short time and can behave more dynamically going up surfaces / glancing off corners intentionally.

    Just a note for demos, don't use the command line trick anymore (if you're on public test). It will break your demo. Just set demo recording to Yes, and it should work just fine.

    3/24 - Live Changes

    -Regen Core overhaul. Hold activate core to start draining energy for health. After 3 seconds you will create an AOE pulse healing nearby allies for 25 damage.

    -Warp core back to its old rules. You can now enter a scar while holding the flag though.

    Please keep in mind these updates are available on Hotswap first and then other servers as owners update. We are trying to keep them in sync the best we can but timezones differ.

    4/28 - Live Changes - patcher update required

    -Demo bookmark system added. There is a new bind in Options --> Keybindings to set ( default is f3 but only works on a fresh install ). Pressing the button during a game will create a demo bookmark. When the demo is loaded up later , pressing the same bind will seek at 10x speed between bookmarks. ( Stops 7 seconds before the bookmark ) So set them before attempts or during cool moments to easily find them later.

    -Demo naming scheme changed to: Servername-Map---Date---time

    -Demo recording should not fail anymore.. remember to give them time to load.

    -IRC script added. Allows players to chat between in-game and IRC.

    -Bindings added near the bottom of the list for speeding up / slowing down / pausing demos during playback.

    -Dodge core cooldown increased to 6 seconds.

    -Some editor functions restored , pressing f11 will toggle the editor both open and closed now. Setting the camera speed will work once you close the editor.

    -You can no longer take crater damage while you are the dodge orb.
