I'd like to begin work on 207 now that I think 206 is fine-tuned.

207 probably won't have the same size and scope that 206 had, which took me about eight months to complete.. yikes!

There will be two main features to 207: a new mission system where you can earn XP for completing missions, and a niche system that acts as a tier-three level after subclasses. I'm pretty satisfied with this mix since it adds both depth and breadth to the server's content.

And of course I'll be throwing in some new monsters, artifacts, weapons, etc.. some examples:
- Decoy - An artifact that creates a hologram version of yourself that will distract monsters.
- New styles of Ultima - Magnet/Black Hole Ultima, Ice/Fire Ultima, Lightning Zapper Ultima. These can be class specific, or we can let players choose which Ultima they want. Of course we'll keep the classic one as well.
- Tech Tentacles - This stationary monster will act as a deployed "sentinel" for the monster team.
- Loot Magic Modifier - This will increase your chance of dropping exp gems and letters, much like how the quickfoot and vampire magic modifiers stack on top of abilities.

Unlike 206 where everything was released in one giant codexplosion, I think I'll be releasing 207 bit by bit, starting with the mission system, then slowing adding on niches. This way it'll keep fresh content flowing in and makes the project more manageable. Right now I have no time frame; I'm basically done with 206 and ready to start on newer stuff. More updates to come.

207 is on the server! That was fast, right?

There are now 'missions' that can be picked up from monsters (the blue mushrooms.. I really didn't know what else to use).

Mission artifacts will describe what you need to complete, as well as the reward for completing the mission. You must buy the mission ability (only 1 point) in order for certain missions to be tracked. You can have up to three active missions at a time.

You can forfeit missions anytime by kebyinding these commands:
exitmissionone
exitmissiontwo
exitmissionthree

These commands must be keybound to work, such as by typing 'set input numpad1 exitmissionone' into the console. You can then press 1 on the num pad to forfeit the first mission on your list. This information is also available in-game in the mission ability info.

Below is a list of missions:
Anger Management - Use a rage weapon.
Aquaman - Make kills while swimming or underwater.
AVRiL Amity - Use the AVRiL.
Bio Berserk - Use the Bio Rifle.
Bone Crusher - Kill skeletons or skulls.
Bug Hunt - Kill pupae, manta, or razorflies.
Cow Care - This will spawn a friendly cow. Your mission is to protect your cow and have it survive each wave. Stand next to it to heal it.
Deflector - Deflect energy projectiles with a reflecting weapon.
Disarmer - Destroy enemy mines and rockets, such as tech mines and ice/fire warlord rockets.
Emerald Shatter - Kill monsters spawned by the emerald invasion orb.
Featherweight - Remain airborne without using boots or a translocator.
Flak Frenzy - Use the Flak Cannon.
Frostmancer - Apply freezing magic.
Ghost Buster - Kill ghost monsters, including ghost Nali. Skeletons and skulls do not count.
Glacial Hunt - Kill ice monsters.
Hexed - You will lose health each second. Survive the duration of the hex.
Life Mend - Heal your allies with a healing weapon.
Link Lunatic - Use the Link Gun.
Mighty Lightning - Use the Lightning Gun.
Minigun Mayhem - Use the Minigun.
Nanite Crash - Kill Tech monsters.
Nullmancer - Apply null entropy magic.
Pop - Make kills with a vorpal POP!
Pyromancer - Apply heat magic.
Rocket Rage - Use the Rocket Launcher.
Rooted Stance - Make kills while standing still.
Sharp Shot Fly - Kill vampire gnats with a sniper-type weapon.
Shock Slaughter - Use the Shock Rifle.
Skaarj Hunt - Kill Skaarj, including Troopers and Snipers.
Spiderman - Make kills while using the electro-magnet artifact.
Star Hunt- Kill cosmic monsters.
Superman - Make kills while airborne. Boots of Flight will help here.
Thunder God - Use the lightning rod artifact AND combo (FFFF) simultaneously.
Utility Mutility - Use the Utility Rifle.
Volcanic Hunt - Kill fire monsters.
Warlord Hunt - Kill warlords.
Wizardry - Receive 3 magic effects applied to you simultaneously. This can come from enemies, or from yourself.
Zombie Slayer - Kill monsters resurrected by the Nali Sorcerer on wave 16 (achieve BONUS if this mission is completed!).

Please please please, report any bugs to me. That is of utmost importance. Balancing out missions and rewards can come later.

Thank you to Gavran for making the mission artifact icons.

It looks like the Engineer crash is back

What I've noticed so far is that when respawning after dying on an Engineer character with a BONUS letter, you will crash and get the post render message. I haven't been able to replicate this for WM/AMs, so hopefully they're ok, and I haven't tried medics or generals yet. I also can't replicate this offline, so this will be trial and error.

If you see the server password locked, it means I'm testing a patch. I normally take the password off soon afterwards, so I apologize for the inconvenience.

Crashed using my WM.

also could not get pyromancer to work even using heat. also bone crusher did not register when i killed skeletons and skulls. Deflector didnt work for me either. Anger management, hexed, ghost buster all worked for me though.

You need to buy the missions ability for mission counts to get registered. But I still find your siutation strange because Ghost Buster definitely needs the mission ability to work. Hexed and anger management work on their own.

Do you recall if you had a BONUS letter when you crashed? Any active missions?

Hurrah, the crash is gone!

207A
- Fixed crash when respawning with a BONUS letter.
- Hex damage now directly attacks health, so it ignores shield and vehicle/turret health.
- Fixed mission names not displaying for the achievement message.

Not sure if a bug or intentional, but turrets/Sentry kills didn't count towards the missions for me. You also can't select a mission while in a turret.

I'll look into this. I haven't tested much with turrets/vehicles/sentinels, but certain missions such as monster hunts should be able to work with them.

I also plan on lowering the mission goals a bit. They should be challenging but not take too long to achieve.
