  1. Click me if you want to play VSP again!

  2. For those that might be interested… Some fans are working on a reborn vsp. Though it's in beta still, it's already fairly close to the original.

    Link if interested: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/VersusPonyvilleReborn

  3. Obligatory new season hype...

    Season 6 tomorrow!

  4. Just to be clear, what did you try to do? Did you try to make yourself look like Woona, or was it just for a Woona-hale? And was this on the VSP-server, or another one?
  5. 1. Medic 2. Eh... the most underpowered (which doesn't mean that they can't be a threat if played right :/) is scout in general, especially those that treat their force-a-nature as a sniper rifle. 3. Engineer 4. ... aren't hales supposed to be overpowered? Anyway, if you're asking that even "bad" players can win a hale round against experienced mercs, then yes, most hales are overpowered because, like Col said, ragespam. 5. Lag, definitly. (That is, mine.) 6. Are you asking how much damage against the hale, or with the hale? Against, depends on how well my pockets do, but around 1-2k. With... ehrm, never noticed. 7. 500 8. 2 years, I suppose. 9. 6-8... it really depends on my pockets, or if the hale isn't laggy enough that I can hit my needles. 10. Sniper and Minigun-Heavy.
  6. So, we should just post music games? If so, Cytus (like you said) and Deemo, both by Rayark games, are definitely recommended.
  7. names

    ...ehrm, does it need to be a pony name? I named mine "scout-stomper deluxe", but you could also go with something like "get over here!"...
  8. Not so used to starting forum games, but... this one has been spooking through my mind for a while. We all know that VSP is this... pretty silly (and awesome) mod from freak fortress 2, meant as a gamemode for bronies (and anti-bronies) to shoot at (oversized?) characters way more powerful than they have ever been shown (bronies meet fellow bronies, anti-bronies... can shoot ponies :/). But, image if... VSP is actually a canon event, either in the tf2 or mlp-verse (or both)... how would VSP actually have come to exist? What... outlandish situation could have led to ponies fighting the mercs, and the mercs fighting ponies? That, is what all this forum game (hopefully) is about. So, the goal is to write a possible story of how VSP could have come to be. Not definitive (that would be kinda arrogant, unless Raini or Simple write/support it, I suppose) but possible, since... this is just a game after all. Few, ehrm, rules: -You can start in either the TF2 or the MLP-verse. (or break the fourth wall, if you're confident enough) -Any story you come up with should eventually lead to our silly VSP gamemode. -Try to be original. Using certain things from previous posts is fine, but there must be something different. -The crazier, the better! ... as long as it makes perfect sense, of course, in the predefined settings of your story. Meaning, your story should be believable, fantastical sure, but not trolllogic-insane fantastical. -Any genre, if they don't break the site rules, is fine... expect trolly ones. Okay, with that all out of the way... may be the best story win get the most likes be the best story!
  9. Dear Mvm,

    While having easy rounds in Mann Up is always fun...

    Do not connect me to a server after the mission is already completed, and using up my ticket and giving me loot in the process.

    I swear, mvm matchmaking is so derpy sometimes.

      Think I've only had this happen to me once. Irritating nonetheless.

  10. And now, for something completely different. So... me and my friend got into a small argument about our ideas of destiny and free will. She, for one, believes that there is no such thing as destiny, that people aren't bound to a greater plan when making decisions, and thus have free will. I, on the other hand, do believe that there is a destiny, a... script, if you will. Like life is just one endless bigger-than-existence story fully written out... But I also believe that you can't say that you know what is written in this script that has yet to come, and still be able to call yourself "human" at the same time. That, having the ability to read further into this story would basically put you on the same level as a god. So... yes, there is a destiny, but since you can't know what that entails for the future you simply can do anything you want, thus having free will. Now, I got curious if maybe some people here had something to add to this? Like, what are your thoughts? Do you believe in free will? Destiny? Both? Neither? Discuss away. Yes, this may seem a bit philosophical, but... eh, why not.
  11. There's the normal 0-99 ping-range, there's the somewhat questionable 100-200 ping-range...

    And then there's the "I whack you from beyond the combined range of 5 disciplinary actions" 800 ping-range.

    Sure, it was an RD-hale, and we had medics and KGB's so we won, but stil... getting hit from 10 feet is scary as fuck.

      Well 400 Ping is Enought to have that kind of stuff,I got Instantly killed by Pinkamena What hitted the wall..

  12. Not really about a specific hale, but more duo and triple hales in general... If a partner suicides/is moved by the afk-manager within the first 10-20 seconds of the round or so, is it possible to add their health to the partner that didn't suicide/is afk (or partners if CMC)? This is... pretty much just me, being pissed that my partner suicided within the first five seconds of the round, after which I practically had no chance to win (and did lose).
  13. Maybe kinda weird one... Boss: Octavia Movement: Superjump Weapon: Melee, Righteous Bison during rage. Rage: Slows time (like duoboss Octavia, but not as much), stuns sentries, equips Righteous Bison; Increased movement speed when equipped (but still so that she too moves slower during rages), shoots a number of projectiles with increased ramp-up damage (and huge building damage) as well as having fall-off damage, penetrates players but not buildings, and (ff it's possible) hitbox projectiles increases over distance. (Also if possible) This bison appears as a cello to all players, has an increased magazine (6-7 shots?) and can not be reloaded, but can be kept and used after the rage ends if it isn't empty. Subsequent rages only fill the magazine back up. Explanation: So, basically, this is my idea for Octavia; A hale that, much like the duohale, slows time, but instead of going all matrix-like uses a bison to deal ranged damage, explaining it as Octavia using the soundwaves of her Cello to damage players and buildings. These soundwaves would be tight and highly damaging at close range (with increased damage to buildings, explaining it as affecting the software), but spread out and deal less damage the further it travels (kinda like real-life soundwaves... expect for the damage part). Also, Octavia herself is sped up during the rage to make up for the slowed game. To kinda balance this (since players are slow as turtles while Octavia moves faster, but not as much as she would if time isn't slowed), she can only use the bison to deal damage. Is it op? Depends... while I say things like massive damage and such, I'm only thinking about each shot doing a maximum of 60-70 damage a shot at point blank range, steadily decreasing over 10 or so feet, taking quite a few shots to kill the tankier/overhealed classes. While the penetrating shots can be devastating to tight groups... well, this is vsp, don't clump together. Also, buildings and map can block shots, so use them as cover. Edit: Or a pomson works too, derp.
  14. First australium, yay.

    (Wonder if you always get one on your second 2 cities tour, heard similar stories from other people)

    1. Aurotzel

      Aurotzel

      Took me until 15, and haven't had a second one 100+ tours later :c. What is it, if I may ask?

      I'm more of a stock minigun-heavy myself, but I'm still happy.

  15. That moment when you complete a contract within 15 seconds after starting it.

    (Dead ringer contract, bonus for blocking damage/surviving hits that would have killed you... joined red on last point of Snowycoast, got blasted by solly into ufo with activated dead ringer, instantly got 130 bonus contract points)

    ...


    Okay.

    1. Aurotzel

      Aurotzel

      Contracts are silly. I got 6 contracts today. 6 OF THEM. It took a while.

    2. Aurotzel

      Aurotzel

      Nvm, I got 2 more.... 8 contracts in one day, I don't understand how the system works anymore.

    3. Aurotzel

      Aurotzel

      10 :D. Sorry for all the spam, I just find it really funny how dumb the contract system is.

  16. Everything's so new, so fast, and... not connected to steam?

    1. Aurotzel

      Aurotzel

      Lotta stuff isn't here like it was before it seems. Pretty sure lot of it is still being worked on, just gotta wait. Pretty bland right now. BUT ITS FAST SO YAY.

    2. Koekelbag

      Koekelbag

      Eh, I used to have to wait a few seconds before a new page loaded, so it's nice to be able to load pages with almost no delay now.

      Also, italics! Don't know if we could do that before in status updates, but I do know now, yay.

  17. Like this? http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198017447754/ Or like this: SteamID: STEAM_0:0:28591013
  18. Fun fact: If there are only 2 people in the server, picking a duo-hale (or cmc) doesn't give an instant win, since there is at least 1 player on red... but the hale still only gets his normal hp (half of total hp), derp.

    1. Karlamena

      Karlamena

      That's only 'cause the player was opted out of hale. It's totally possible for everyone on a 2-3 population server to be hale. :3

    2. Koekelbag

      Koekelbag

      ... Darn, the other player indeed didn't opt in...

      Dammit.

  19. "Added some logic to prevent players getting stuck when RED's first spawn closes" As it turns out, this is just a meter besides the gate that counts down... still, I honestly laughed when I read this.

  20. Not really sure if this will help you, but this helped me a long time ago, so... well, here ya go. Are you suicidal? While I can't talk for your mind, your body very definitely does not want to die. I mean, this probably will sound harsh, but you can't just die like that, even if you for whatever reason thought it would be the best thing. Your body wants to live, and it will do its damnedest to survive even the harshest of situations. Thus, by extend, since your brain doesn't want to die, your mind doesn't want to either, so you don't want to die... At least, that's how I see it. Honestly, if anything, you seeking out aid, both in RL as here on the forums implies that you want to at least talk about it with others, which is another point for you wanting to live. Why are you doing this to yourself? I dunno why exactly you personally would think about suicide... but it's an interesting concept to think about in general, since it's result (death) is something that everyone will someday encounter. Is it considered unhealthy to think about death? Nah, everyone eventually realises it's the goal everyone will reach, you would be called crazy to deny this. Heck, some people even (ironically) make a living just by thinking about it, writing about it and talking with others about it. So, if thinking about death can be called "normal", why would suicide be anything less? If you really want a reason as to why you think about it, consider because you simply can. I mean, if you couldn't... you're either dead, or don't have a normal brain. First and foremost, to think about suicide, you have to be alive. This may sound stupid... but often times, people who do end up committing suicide already think they are dead, which obviously is not the case here. You already said that you have no want of harming yourself, which means that you don't want to die. But, if you don't want to die yourself, then why think about it? Actually, a multiple of things could be the reason; -Simple curiosity (my case) -Someone in your environment commited suicide, and you want to understand just why someone would do it, oftentimes helping with grief. -You're someone who thinks about the "great things" like life/death/the universe/infinity or whatever, and your thought wandered to this subject. -Or, and usually the most likely, you are afraid to die (and really do not want to die), and you hope that thinking about death (and suicide) could prepare you to cope with it whenever the reaper decides to visit you. Again, I don't know if any of this helped you (it will probably read as a ramble), since me being "highly functional" or whatnot makes me think different, but... it helped me nonetheless, so... yeah. Remember, you can only think about death if you're alive... so stay alive, okay?
  21. Any reason the stock scattergun only drains 1 hp every 4-5 seconds, despite it's description saying -1hp/s?
  22. Contracts are sometimes weird... and stupid, oh so very stupid. I mean, a Direct Hit contract where you get bonus points on simply hitting people? Not to mention that I completed in that same solly life a wrangler contract, from 15 to 130 points... yes, an engineer contract as a soldier. Not sure if I should laugh or cry...

    1. Aurotzel

      Aurotzel

      Contracts are dumb. I like how on a spy one, the "advanced" thing to do is kill a Demo, Heavy, Medic, or Engineer. Killing 4/9 of the classes gives you like 3 points. 2advanced4me.

  23. Happy Christmas Eve :D

  24. Bug (I think, hope it isn't an exploit) for Dovashy: Massive arrow supply, screencap: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198017447754/screenshot/398930471910132401(notice the little 63 in the bottem right corner) A bit information on the round itself: I raged quite a bit (thanks to airblasts, raged 5-6 times I believe) because a friend didn't know her rage was nerfed, so I showed it to them. Didn't really use any arrows between rages for 3/4 of the round (also didn't pay attention to the ammo counter), but when I pulled out the crossbow at the end, I noticed I had 75 arrows in reserve. I told the server I had so many arrows, and decided to use them for the lols (didn't saw anyone, didn't think arrows would hit anything.) However, when I got to about 55 arrows left, the 2 last players suddenly both crashed, so I suppose that it's due to my arrowspam (wich I honestly didn't expect.) Also, yes, I noticed Cheese Pone saying that is was an exploit, but I simply thought that is was a bug (never saw it before/heard someone talk about it) at the moment. But, if this can really be reproduced...
