With the increase in cubes the power countdown at the end is a bit long.

Crazy suggestion (I assume this doesn't already happen) - certain weapon projectiles being able to shoot each other down. I had both my players with homers and thought how sweet it would be for both to be firing homers and the missiles to be explodiing into each other.

Mmmm... maybe. Wouldn't be too hard, but the chances of two homers is unlikely (though not impossible, obv). Being able to shoot down homers with a Gibber just feels unfair/ too fiddly. I dunno...

Yeah, I wouldn't want them to be shot down by the gibber, would make them to easy to escape. Maybe only by other homers and the zapzap...

Feels a bit unlikely to be worrying about right now, but I'll bear it in mind next time I'm hovering around the bullet code.

This is my first beta testing action, so I'm sorry if I'm breaking all the rules.

Resolution: I just wanted to mention that my screen resolution (2560x1600) isn't in the list. I've always wondered what sort of work is behind supporting a given resolution. I would think you'd just have to support the aspect ratio, and then all those resolutions would work just fine, but that sounds a bit too easy for game development. Anyway, I used 1920x1080 and it worked just fine. I guess you could say the letterboxing is intentional, for a cinematic feel or something.

No one uses anything above 1080, surely?

I'll probably be able to support it. I'm rewiting all the fucking menu code at the moment (the main problem with differing resolutions) so assuming that goes well it's a fairly trivial job to get new resolutions in.

Suggestions:

Rain starting halfway through a match (this may happen already!)
Clouds of flies around gibs on desert theme
Moonraker beam sets off explosive items
A possible perk - cubes easier to spot.

This might be the wrong thread, but it would be nice to be able to use the controller on menu screens. Also, mouse wheel on the lobby (?) screen.

Rain can start halfway through a match, its just currently very unlikely.

Moonraker I think might ruin too many explosives?


Cubes no for networking tech reasons.

Flies is kind of... given how much else there is to do, incidental hard-to-see details isn't really top priority. Maybe after launch?

Mouse wheel worked up until 0.93 will look at it.

Controller on the menus is messy, will look at it but not a priority.

Just to reiterate:

suggestions ... no matter how big or small or unlikely.

These aren't necessarily things I think the game really needs or are even likely to be possible, or that I've even thought through (moonraker suggestion being a case in point- I had thought it might ruin explosives but put it forward anyway to see what you/people thought) they're generally just stuff I think "ooh, that might be nice/cool/handy" while I'm playing.

But yeah, post-launch it'd be cool to see lots of nice little touches and additions patched in.

This is probably the plan anyway, but it'd be nice to have a cohesive theme/not-necessarily-told backstory. So Instead of Team and Points and Cash, it could be eg Company and Power (or Killerwatts or whatevs) and Stock Value.

After playing all day, I went back to Original Gibbage and it feels damn weird. but one thing that would be great to bring back at some point is mutually dangerous arenas like the volcano or homing-missile levels. Oh, and bounce-pads.

I've got bounce pads from The Swindle. Ive been toying with making them rare spawners at the bottom of the map... Dunno though. Maybe post launch.

I was also considering random explosions on Anubis. Initially feels like bad design to have random deaths, but actually if I signpost it they could be fun. Maaaaaybe.
