CSRD Update: 28 September 2017

Back to school edition. I've been swamped with actually studying for an exam.

There's a number of other things that are backlogged that I hope to release soon-ish, but they could use some more testing.

A thing I missed from the last summary

  • Raised minimum requirement to play ...

CSRD Update: 6 August 2017

It's August already? The year's gone by awfully quickly.

Here's the update summary that I've been writing, though I already covered most of it in the shorthand changelog.

Bug fixes

  • Robots can now actually play on maps with embed.nav-style navigation meshes.
    • All that happened ...

CSRD Update: 20 June 2017

Time for another update summary!

I've been in a coding slump over the past couple of months; this update is more focused on maps.

Map changes and tweaks

  • Various improvements on bot support for Cliff Top (Payload):
    • RED players won't get stuck in their last spawn after second ...

CSRD Update: 18 April 2017

Update summary! Spring break's over and I barely did anything significant to the server.

Map changes

  • Switched Various Artists (KOTH) out to use the current non-Workshop release (RC4). Unfortunately, the Workshop version doesn't do audio playback for whatever reason, so we were missing out on a lot of ...

Spoilers: I mentioned the big things in ...

CSRD Update: 11 February 2017

Happy new year!

Here's your irregular newsletter on what's new with the server. Some of it was previously outlined in the changelog history on the main page, so if you think you saw it mentioned before, you probably have.

Client feature additions

  • The Chat Control plugin now prevents players from using ...

CSRD Update: 25 September 2016

So much to do, so much to see. I'll be spending some time doing some server-related fixes, but it may be slow going. My cats won't feed themselves.

Backend features:

  • Added my Plugin Mangler. Makes hacking on bleeding-edge plugins slightly faster, as I can do stuff in bulk ...

CSRD Update: 10 August 2016

Another day, another update. Been busy, so here's a rundown of the latest:

New and improved client features:

  • Added "Public Command Handlers". For those people that keep trying to use !robot on the server. Also handles a few other well-known commands people like to bind. Feel free to try ...

CSRD Update: 20 July 2016

Meat vs. Match has been out for almost a few weeks. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it helps community servers at all. Actually makes it worse, since now us Quickplay-eligible community server owners are lumped in with custom game modes, Orange maps, and instant respawn servers, among others.

Oh ...
