Sven Co-op Updates

Written by xoleras. Posted in Gaming

The SCXPM server is being repurposed to appeal to a more general audience of players as the game base has demanded. In a few months players should see a new server up that will be adjusted over time in terms of game types, maps, and mod usage. 

There are a couple of projects being developed by members of the community. One is a set of plug-ins that act as scripting extensions to system integrated in the game already. The other is a server-side mod for Sven Co-op, WORM, which is a collection of extensive game content packed with novel technical addons that surpass potential game mechanics which may potentially be implemented with the server-side Angelscript tool. The author for the former, Zames, expects to release the scripts this summer. WORM, on the other hand, may not be released until the end of this year.
