I asked for Inheritor since it rolls of the tongue easily, but Almayer works just as well.

Wow, holy shit huge props to the sprite team, it looks like a completely different game! Can't wait to try out the new map as well as with each new map the mapping team gets more experience on what makes a great map. So in theory this will be the best one yet.

Damn gonna have to get used to saying U.S.S Almayer, and I also have to get used to not having a good-o'l Conestoga class starship as my home...Can't wait for the LV-426 memes we can pull now.

Was looking forward to Waterworld being more of a played map, but Big Red is a good replacement.

Bring back the old old sulaco! Huge locker room with tiny quarters, a long, pointless bridge to the dropships, a briefing room with too many tables and not nearly enough space! Old good! Change bad!

Can I just say that what little you showed us of the new sprites looks absolutely fantastic, and much more like it belongs in the Aliens universe. Hot damn.

Seriously, 70% bigger? Hype off the charts.

One question - will we eventually see the Almayer replace the Sully on LV if/when you redesign LV?

Does that mean the Sulaco is going to have one last hurrah (Read: SM overload) for an event? Or will it quietly fade away?

Agreed. I prefer old CM. But, we've come a long way and I'm excited to see where we go next, even if I keep taking periodic 2-week breaks.

Happy 2-Years without being shutdown by griefers, Hippie-Mains or Communist bastards. Thanks for the hard work making sure this flying salt mine stays flying Apop, and Staff.

I hope she goes out in a glorious way boss. Either viking funeral style, or with much respect and veneration.

I'm coining it here, the nickname for the Almayer will be the Ally or Aly.

Such a large ship will surely need correct staff to keep it clean and in a efficient order.
