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!


(also please add in weed farming thanks)

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?

The Almayer will replace the Sully on ALL maps. The Sulaco is being retired.

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.
