As you guys know, the Phase 2 of Nexuiz has begun! You will see you have 3 new maps to play in. You also have Mutator Options, Custom Server Browser, Mutator Store and more. Dedicated Servers are right around the corner!
With that said, I'd like to formally announce we will be delaying Nexuiz's release until May 10th (1 week delay). The bug reports you guys have given us are awesome. We want Nexuiz to be as good as it can be. With this 1 week extension, we hope to further address and iron out a lot of crashes players are getting (majority of issues have declined drastically throughout the beta).
However, we will also be pushing the BETA until May 03rd. This will allow you guys to give us more feedback to ensure things are working.
We've been making great strides. In the latest patch, we have made weapon balance changes, performance optimizations, increased matchmaking efficiency, decreased crashes and more. There's more work to be done. With your help, we can make this game really bad ass.
With that said, I am happy to inform everyone of a special gift for being a part of our beta and standing along side us during this grueling crunch. We were initially thinking something like a medal or Dynamic Mutator Store Points for beta players. However, I want to give something even more to you guys. Even more so, I want the Xbox 360 Players to know I have not forgotten you either.
I will be designing and creating a level for Nexuiz, based off core design mechanics voted by you. This is something new, so we're going into this fresh together!
DESIGN FEATURES STAGE
Starting tonight, a forum will be open to registered players that allows them to vote on core design mechanics of a map. This period will last 5 days. At which time, these polls will close (so make sure you tell your friends).
BLUE ROOM STAGE
At the end of this poll, I will combine the design decisions and create 3 "blue rooms". A blue room is a version of a level that is 100% about gameplay and easy to iterate on. It's not pretty, but it will give me the ability to take your feedback and make quick changes.
The Blue Room Stage will last for 5 days. After which, I will put up a poll for players to vote on what Map they'd like to see become official of the 3.
I hope to have the level made within 2 weeks. I will be doing a completely new art style with new assets and more. You will of course, receive this level free!
For those worried about programming focus and bug focus - this is not my area. I don't do programming bug fixes, so I have the time to do something like this for you.
XBOX 360 PLAYERS: I know you guys feel neglected. I know you want to be playing these blue rooms. Unfortunately, the Xbox platform does not allow us to get these files to you easily (or even patches, unfortunately). I would still love for you to have your input on these maps and we will do what we can to get these maps to you as well!
In other news!
The artists are hard at work on the Nexuiz STUPID rendering (benchmarking tool). This features Mesh Tesselation, Fancy pants lighting, completely uncompressed textures and other fancy features available in CryENGINE 3.
