It is sad day: They've released PAID DLC.
This game had awesome policy about dlcs, and funding them from the community. What happened? Will they start to milk people with tons of "community made" dlcs after now?

Besides, it is not only cosmetics content. It is sad :(


P.S: By the way, I have NS2: deluxe edition. I am at work, and this is my work account for years. I do not login my account on public computers at work for the security.

You are sad. The dlc is if you want to support loki the creator of the map.

Do not be so naive. It is just for eye-wash, the developer gets 50%. Seems like the developer will do the same thing for tons of "community made" dlcs too, it is easy money with minimal cost for them of course.

They've already put "donate" link on their workshop page if they need support. You can support them easily. Just use the donate link on the page.

The Steam workshop is for free "community made" content. Not for the developers who try to get easy money with minimal cost => just grab the "free content" from the Steam workshop community, and sell it for 50% profit without any work. It is easy money. They will not give 100% profit to Loki, unfortunately.

The map is free for anyone who owns NS2
The "Paid DLC" are for COSMETIC skins only
50% of this DLC money does go to me.
UWE gets the other 50%

Yes the workshop does have free community made content, however making that leap from
a community map to somthing that can ship with a full game really means a lot to me.
If anyone else who has posted or made anything on the workshop gets that offer, I can bet they wont say NO.

To anyone who is reading this and has got the cosmetic dlc,

Thankyou very much! it is very much appreciated.

Loki, thank you for the map and I'll be buying the DLC to support your work.

But I must say that the DLC page is really a bit confusing. It looks like the map and the new customisation system are part of the DLC at the first moment. Until you read this:

What's included?

Kodiak Camouflage Marine Armor (Male & Female)
Kodiak Camouflage Marine Rifle
Kodiak Camouflage Exosuit
Kodiak Camouflage Skulk
Kodiak Marine Shoulder Pad

I'm all for supporting the community and the modders, that's a given. Much love to people that create good content, for any game. So I'm not against this kind of paid DLC. If someone doesn't want it, just don't buy it. No one is forcing you to.

However, considering the state this game is in, I will not be supporting it. I haven't been able to play it despite having owned it for several months now and I am not alone. It is ridden with game-stopping, system-crashing bugs that seem unsolvable. Quite a lot of people have some kind of problem with it, quite a lot more can't even launch the game.

So... DLC? For a product this messed up? Pass. If the game EVER gets fixed to a point that people are actually able to run it, sure.
They day the Black Armor retail DLC gets released is the day where i would even consider buying DLC from UWE...This game is a mess..it's not only poorly optimized(Hint: Long games where the Aliens are winning), it uses the cpu to render textures sometimes more than it does with the GPU.

*FacePalm and when it tries to optimize it ends up using alot more disk memory than most games #GG fix the game before releasing any new stuff, UWE.

None. The DLC pack is cosmetic skins only, the map is free for anyone who owns NS2.

I call shenanigans, the dlc pack gets you Marine armor skin, Assault Rifle skin, Exosuit skin, skulk skin, and a shoulder emblem. Everything else is free for all players.

MAP IS FREE FOR EVERYONE!!!!

only paid stuff are cosmetics, which 50%(!!!!!) going to the community modder who made it

NOTHING IS FREE!
Right now I suffer that the official server only plays this map...

Second, It IS SAD that UWE is milking their cow through community efforts. Esp when considering their roots of being the community of another great hit known as half life. Thanks OP!

Lets take a look at the purely cosmetic camo on a very foilaged map. I'm not one to raise this issue so much but I am one to support the issue to be raised when it's all not free.

LASTLY you've been watering down the black armor with your dumb icon/skin ♥♥♥♥. I feel bad for them. Really It takes me a bit to say this but UWE are sellouts. They Sold areas of their game to the advertising market. Since wording is such a pain, I'll say it's slightly more seeing credits roll as I play the game I already bought. I know what to expect from UWE if there model doesn't change, this will be the last game I buy from them.

PSS: Like I've been saying tommorrow it will be unicorn ono skin soon. F'n lame
