Our SP Coop gametype was largely based off of his Open Coop mod. We really appreciate all of your help, and it is always nice to see you stop by our irc channel. Check out nicemice's opencoop at http://opencoop.doom3maps.org/ Bluehair - I'd also like to give a special thanks to Bluehair of d3files.com He has been a huge help to the mod with all of his constant support with posting our news and files, and other mod related help. Your assistance is as always, greatly appreciated ;D Brian Harris - Thank you as well Brian Harris for your part in helping Beerman with Infrared vision among other things. We really appreciate your prompt and informative assistance, thanks! We would like to extend a special thanks to the Doom 3 Community for your continuing support. We would also like to thank Id software for making the kick ass game that started it all: DooM. Personal messages from the team (In alphabetical order): AO: Happy to release beta .3! Want to thank hobbes and the awesome beta testers to help us see the bugs both in the SP maps and the LMS maps. Also thanks to the community for suggesting improvements. This release was supposed to be a bugfix release, but turned out to be so much more, we have so much new stuff in the release it's amazing. Don't think it's been easy, there's been A LOT of work done by several people, I'm just happy I've found others guys with the the talent and same passion for games. calimer: I'm really amazed at the progress we have been making in this mod. We just keep on pumping out more and more content. I even asked the team if they felt the need for a small break since I wanted to make sure people were not getting overworked and everyone wanted to keep going. In 0.4 you will see a bunch of new maps that are already being worked on. 0.4 is going to be a map polishing release so expect significant improvements in that area for the next release. In the meantime enjoy our maps with lots of bug fixes in LMS Mod and also play SP Coop which is nearly completely working. I really want to give a huge thanks to the team and to our beta testers for all of their hard work. Also to Revility for all of his hard work on the double barrel shotgun, you rock! As Beta Testers Hobbes and XxLavaxX have been especially awesome in providing great feedback. Also I would like to thank the community for providing all the support they have such as all the positive feedback, hosting servers, etc, it really has been awesome, thank you so much. Enjoy all the new features of 0.3 :D -Michael "calimer" Tomaino Kaiser: Enjoy LMS because its going to get better and better! MercyKiller: This release has been fairly eventful. We're raising the bar in quality control for everything. Think of this release as a technology release. Code has been optimized, SP coop is now supported, and we're laying the groundwork in terms of weapon models and other gameplay tweaks to really have some great maps next release. You may notice that some of the maps in beta 0.2 are not included with beta 0.3. This is due to quality control reasons. Expect all the old maps to be back in beta 0.4, revamped and overhauled to be even more fun and action packed! I'm also really impressed with the way to community has come alive and helped us out. Hobbes, your work has been great! Beta testers, ya'll are awesome. My personal thanks in this release has to go to B33Rman for putting up with my barrage of scripting questions. I appreciate it dude. Stephen "MercyKiller" Youts Timbobsteve: This is mainly a bug release build. We focused mainly on fixing problems that were discovered during the public testing of Beta 0.2. By rights we would have liked to have no bugs in Beta 0.2 but alas this is not the nature of Development. You won't find alot of new content just added functions that should help make the game alot more solid to play. As always our development is strongly controlled by user responses and feedback.. So use the forums and e-mail details to let us know what u think. On a small side note, it should be noted that the last man standing team fully supports user made maps. While we do have our own map dev team it is strongly believed that the success of a game in the public domain is largely due to user-made content. So start collecting those ideas for cool maps. If u have a great idea for a map, but lack the ability to see it through post your thoughts on our forums and some of your map ideas might be taken on board by the dev team. NOTE: we also supply a mapping guide on our site, which is also included in the release. -Timbobsteve Final note: I hope you enjoy our beta and please feel free to contact us about any problems you have, whether you like it or dislike it, anything. We'd really like to hear from you. Take care. -calimer firstname.lastname@example.org http://lms.d3files.com/ irc.gamesurge.net channel #lms-mod For the LMS news join our newsletter at http://lms.d3files.com/newsletter.php
