First I want to give a big thanks to DonMorti for reviewing LMS at http://modnmod.com You can check out the review right here:
http://www.modnmod.com/mods/Last_Man_Standing/reviews.php

In addition I would like to make everyone aware of our "company" site http://platinumarts.NET I know that the site isn't that great yet but we are focusing on LMS. At http://platinumarts.NET you'll be able to see what our current and future projects are.

Also we have quite a few updates, so many that I'll need to save some for the next news post. Here are some new features we'd like to mention:

* New Info Player Starts -
These new info player starts help to decrease telefragging by making each info player start capable of spawning in nw,ne,se,sw locations if the space is taken up by another player. Here is a screen of how they look:


* New End Game Score Gui -
The new score gui shows your end of game score, and also keeps track of your score from map to map and ranks them vs everyone else. Take a look at the screen:



* More Admin Rights For Server Hosts -
Server admins will have much more control over their lms servers now, including the ability to ban players. Here is a screen:



Also it is worth mentioning that we have a Java Web IRC application that loads through an internet browser for those people who don't understand irc clients and just want to come in and chat without any fuss. Check it out here under the IRC link of our webpage:

Many of you are probably also wondering where 1.0 Official is. Unfortunately we were not able to meet our "hopeful" end of June release. The reason is that we have more features and content we'd like to add to make the experience that much better. These include some tweaks that should help out on lag, among other things. Also I'm trying hard to get my new map radio tower at a gameplay level that I'm happy with. It is an outdoor defense map where monsters are literally trying to tear down the doors to your outpost. Also with Kaiser's blessing we are trying to add in his awesome map TLabs to give players another progression style map to play. And if that isn't enough he is also working on a new progression map for 1.0! We are now expecting to release in the middle of July to allow enough time for proper testing. Thanks for your patience, it will definitely be worth it.

And if you haven't picked up LMS 0.35 yet get the windows version here:

Or the Linux version here:
http://doom3.filefront.com/file/;42315

Our updated mapcycle (place it in your lms folder) is located here:
http://lms.d3files.com/mapcycle.scriptcfg

Take care and see you on the servers!
