It's an old version of NS, dated by 30th July of 2003. Uploaded for historical and collectors' purposes, because it's hard to find on internet now. Requires Half-Life v18.104.22.168 (at least) to run.
Spacecraft or colony. Marines vs. marines and aliens vs. aliens scenarios will also be supported in the near future. "First-person strategy" with a real resource model and consequences for actions. Both sides are genuinely different and together they accommodate different play styles. Marines: Fighting skill is less important, strategy and communication take its place. Playing as a marine will be a tense experience with methodical planning and strategy, interrupted with action. Aliens: Playing as an alien will be an intense action experience, rewarding reflexes and alien heroics. Communication and coordination don't require typing. NS includes easy to use and intuitive menus, and commands. Being the commander on the marines is a seamless experience, that requires almost no extra knowledge. The game even has small pop-up hints that help beginners to play.
