Open Source Spotlight: Xonotic

Hi Guys,

I've been making a series called Open Source Spotlight on my YouTube channel, and I've featured Xonotic this week! Really love what you guys have done with this game Smile

Hope you guys like the video, and I hope you don't mind me posting this here, this seemed to be the most relevant place.



Very nicely done! Smile

As for the weapons, if used RIGHT they can be each very powerful. E.g. the rocketlauncher you used can guide rockets by just holding the left mouse button and move your mouse into some direction. The secondary mode of it detonates the rocket making it easier to hit your opponent in air. Generally it´s easier to aim and shoot at the ground/feet of the opponents with splash weapon (rocketlauncher, grenadelauncher, electro, etc.).

There is a lot to learn in Xonotic even if you won´t expect that from this FPS.

Nice stuff Dave Wink
metsu ZeRoQL (Stats) - <@nifrek> true, I guess in tdm you also dont always have your perfect choice of weapon, especially when ZeRoQL is controlling nex Dodgy

Cool stuff man. For other open source games, you can try out hedgewars, Zero-K, and Unvanquished. Those are some really good ones.

Interesting video and someone who likes the menu(?!).

I like the menu too :-).
My contributions to Xonotic: talking in the forum, talking some more, talking a bit in the irc, talking in the forum again, XSkie

Thanks for taking the time to review our game!

Very nice ...


Hi Guys,

Glad you liked the video! As Maddin said if the weapons are used right, they're perfect. I think for me, it was a little bit different than I had expected, that's not to say it's wrong so I hope it didn't come across like that Smile



No problem, nobody is perfect. Smile

I enjoyed your review very much, great audio quality, great voice to listen to.
Bonus points for the quick and simple explanation of the Xonotic history.
