    Ns2 is under paid development again. I don't know how many here even knew ns2 never stopped being developed with the community development team. UWE has now hired some of the community developers to work on the game.

    You can read about that, and keep up with what is going on in ns2 at www.ns2news.org

    If you are interested there is now an official ns2 discord server. Here is the invite link. Discord is an app that is like skype and IRC had a child. A lot of the community hangs out there right now. Come join and check it out.

    If you have not played in awhile, ns2's performance has increased quite a bit. Loading times have also improve significantly.

    If you are interested I took a bunch of screenshots of ns2 at max settings with 4k resolution. You can look at the imgur album here.
    Just a little sample of those images.

    Updated the original post. @RCoon this could be made the official ns2 discussion page. It has been around for a few years before there was official game discussion pages.

    Calling all of the tpu community who once enjoyed NS2, or once posted in this thread. @f22a4bandit @Flibolito , @Chryonn , @xenocide , @alucard13mmfmj , @techtard , @pantherx12 , @Velvet Wafer , @3870x2 , @Frick , @AphexDreamer , @Eternalchaos @catnipkiller , @Zen_ @TheHunter , @KainXS , @Mindweaver , @lyndonguitar , @RejZoR , @Mathragh , @Maban , @Kursah , @Crusader , @Ahhzz , @zootac

    I must admit, I've not played this game for a looong time. what would you say are the most obvious things the new dev team might work on?

    In this link here you can see what they have done recently, what they are doing next, and what they plan to do on the near future.

    The most interesting thing in the done tab is some hitreg and network fixes. Beyond that it looks like they have a lot of plans to polish the game to make it more polished in an attempt to fix player retention. They have stated they want to have most of that done in 6 months.
