All I'm asking is that the Devs (and/or BetaTesters) be more consistent with giving examples to the community for advertised features at release.

Alright I guess we'll make a note next time to only show a video with text that lists the new api features and nothing else. That way people won't get the wrong idea.

Was that sarcasm? Of course it was!

I'ma just kinda remove this wall of quotes because it is getting pretty big...

There, that's better. :)

Yes, you could just create a video with only a text list of new abilities, but that's not very appealing to players ::)
A better remedy is:
1) Call them what they are, New Possibilities. They are only features on servers which have been graced with the script or who have engineered their own version. "All this and MORE is possible in JC2-MP 0.1.X!"
2) Provide demo scripts at release for each advertised thing. These would not be drag and drop instant features for a server, they would be admin tools showcasing the basic concepts and functions - to be used on a test server for developing their scripts.

Edited a bunch of posts, please only quote the relevant text instead of quoting the entire post with 4 nested quotes.

We hear all of you, and understand your concerns. In fact, I raised this issue with the rest of the team several times (as Trix would attest to), and rest assured, we know that you'd all like more examples. I agree that our 0.1.2/4 launch could've really done with more details on how to use new features; I was responsible for organizing the launch, but due to real-life circumstances I was unavailable at the time.

For future launches, we'll try and get everything together - we've formulated a release process that ensures that documentation and examples will be ready prior to release. A bare-bones version of Trix's missiles have been released - the version demonstrated in the video wasn't ready for release - and I hope people will put it to use. Amphibious cars is indeed implemented by placing a clientside static object under the vehicle; that was my script, but as a result of the aforementioned real-life circumstances, I was unable to release it.

So again, sorry for not getting everything together; real life has served to intervene heavily in our affairs, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to fit JC2-MP into our busy schedules. Hopefully, we'll be able to get the next release together in a package everyone can enjoy. :)

Thank you for the reply, Philpax. It is reassuring to know a Dev reads our posts and hears us.

Real Life is very understandable and should always take priority.

It took me about an hour to recreate amphibious vehicles after your confirmation. If it is alright with you I plan to release this script after a few more modifications to it.

EDIT: Here is the release of 'Amphibious Vehicles' or more accurately, WaterWalk.
