Notable features

  • Sven Co-op is now its' own independent game distributed on Steam, free of charge.
    • Includes 3 packages: A game package for players, a tool package for dedicated server operators, and an SDK package for content developers.
    • Includes use of the Steam game hub platform and community features. (workshop functionality to be included in a future release)
  • Sven Co-op now uses a customized GoldSrc engine under licence from Valve.
    • Gives us the opportunity to improve upon common limitations in the GoldSrc engine.
    • Maps can now be up to ~1000x larger! (131,072 units away from zero instead of just 4,096)
    • Mappers: See the engine changes section for more details and technical information.
  • New scripting engine using AngelScript:
    • New entity: trigger_script
    • A map script can be loaded by specifying a file in the map's configuration using key map_script.
    • Scripts can be triggered one off or periodically (thinking).
    • Alternative script files can be used, and shared across maps.
    • Store persistent data reliably with SQLite back-end storage.
    • Entire server modifications can be designed, along with SQLite and MySQL storage for server-specific scripts.
    • Watch out in future change logs as many more updates will come with this!
  • New inventory system by using the new entity item_inventory, which is an item that a player holds on to for trigger rules and/or side-effects. Some example possibilities:
    • A key item must be carried by a player to a locked door, rather than it instantly becoming unlocked for rushers to wait by.
    • A bomb defuse kit has to be brought to a bomb to defuse it, or it explodes and you all die.
    • A gas mask can protect a player from nerve gas, but only lasts 2 minutes.
    • Did someone say Capture the Flag??
  • New models for all weapon pick-ups and third person view models to match the high quality first person models.
  • New preliminary A.I. pathing entities for better control on where NPC's move around a map.
  • Player weapons/ammunition can now be carried across map changes. (if a map wants to do this)

Code changes

Game core

    • When triggered if the radius setting is not 0, a radius check will happen, and the effect is applied only if the player is within radius.
  • Changed maps with player model enforcement to write the player choice model in "cl_model" instead of "team" in the client info string.
