A large update to the weapon systems and locust behaviors!

New weapons:
- Gravity gun - try grabbing the rocks and the scouts
- Grenade launcher - try it on a big crowd of locust
- Deagro grenades - calming down attacking locust
- EMP tower - slows the locust down

New locust behaviors:
- Angry scouts might jump on you
- Locust learnt to communicate to each other, attacking one might sometimes make his friends angry

We are really curious to hear your feedback on all the new weapons and locust behaviors. Please try out the new version and let us know what do you think, either here or on Discord: https://discord.gg/TtzgQuh

After our Early Access launch we had a Monday morning coffee to decide what should we do next.
We all agreed that now it's time to make the interaction with the world more interesting.
So this week we will be spending experimenting and building different weapon systems for the PDS.

The first two are rockets and shields.
  • Rocket launcher - shoots in a ballistic trajectory rather than straight line, and hits multiple enemies by it's explosion.
  • Shield - a way to defend yourself from the rocks flying at you. In addition to adding a shield we are experimenting with changing the hit area of the rocks so it will be possible to avoid them by steeping aside and dodging.

Here are short videos to show you what we have got so far:

Lot's of polishing again + one very annoying issue fixed.
Here are the major improvements:

- Improved game menu
- Remade visuals for prolog (Hit "reset storyline" in the menu to watch, but it will erase your progress)
- Hitpoints/Time-indicator on PDS guns counter recoil
- Added spectator mode
- Added commentaries: Tower down, Strider down
- "Get out of the Console"
- Fix for the PDS arms being on the way when shooting

About the arms being on the way - after watching a few folks playing the game is was clear we must make the arms move away.
The initial idea was to attach the rotation to the headset location, but then you won't be able to see the beauty of the arm and won't get same feeling about their size.
Eventually we decided to attach the rotation to the guns, so you still have the chance to look around and see the mech arms around you.
Please tell us in the comments what do you think of the fix?
