Change: Female Rebel Soldier with the ponytail now has a unique soundset from TFU.
The voiceline were complete, satisfying, working well with the image of the character...
Now from a soldier type of taunts, I get "Help... Come on! Q_Q" and some undescriptible alien language.
I really can't understand the idea behind this change, it is almost if no one felt someone liked the character as it was. This was my go-to model. That's truely sad.

Change: Outfit tweaks on female Imperial Officers to blend in more with imperials.
Looking at the Chiss female officer, the cap she now wear is looking out of place. The two tails on the side of her face, looks totaly not imperial. These are usually for younger females, or jedi-like characters.
The former hair we had on this model, had a way more serious vibe to it. Now I feel the face is disproportionated because of the tails and cap. This also was my go-to model. I can't hide I feel sad about the change, and will do a client-side change for myself...

Change: Timer scores use a lower font weight.
I believe the attempt here is to make it more eyes friendly. The more colors, the harder the readability.
I understand you want to use specific colors for specific things. But passively for the eyes, this current colors is mostly making itself be visible instead of blending it, passively.

Fix: Duel Mode Private Duels
While we are at it for next time (^^)
- When starting a duel, during the 3...2...1 timer, you can generate force focus on your opponent
- At the moment the duel start, if you immediately do a forward flying kick, with saber wielded. And your opponent is blocking, he will get knocked down, just like if he wasn't blocking.
This abuse is widely used...

Change: Added third option in settings menu for cg_voiceFloodProtect (2: mute all). Was previously undocumented.
This is GOLD. Because this became turning me crazy after so long.
Yet the chat spam was still a thing. Thanks to the "2: mute all" now this is solved. Appreciate alot !

It's good to see new updates, however, I just want to mention one thing that has happened recently (not in this particular update).

Flying kicks require the +use button to execute. I don't know why this was done and I think it's a case of fixing something that isn't broken. It just makes the controls more clunky and reminds me of what was done to the RDFA jump requiring +reload when it was so smooth before.

I think we should nib this clunkifying trend in the bud, because not only does it make the controls less smooth and ruin flow, it's also more obscure.

I've seen people advocating for even more moves to be put behind the +use wall. I do not understand the logic of requiring more button presses to execute a move, and that being a step forward. It's not. If anything, it's a step backwards and makes the game play worse.

Oh yes. As an old man, I have to say I don't get it. The "use" button is a retro factor that I wouldn't want to miss.

It happened because someone wanted non-jedi to be able to do air kicks, and then melee users complained that it conflicted with katas if the inputs weren't perfectly timed.

Personally I don't think the change was worth the effort, and yes I can see your complaint about it being more input. On the other hand it is now consistent with other special melee moves which all require holding use. I'm not really sure why doing it as a saberist with lightsaber out using class special requires holding use though. That can't possibly conflict.

I hope we get new rebel soldier skins soon. The ones we have are not too exciting sadly. All the other classes have fire skins though.

Anyone else getting remote server 503 error messages right now? I won't let me update.

Edit: I installed the Experimental launcher and it didn't have the error.
