    Fixed broken facility ping of Fuel Station.
    Fixed being able to Ping in the Intro screen.
    Fixed hearing the Thing's detection sound during Intro screen.
    Fixed being able to get items stuck using the Anti-Cliff Hiding system.
    Fixed Quick Drop not disappearing when dropping Riot Shield.
    Fixed Flamethrower bar not updating when replenished by Fuel Station.
    Added New Year decorations.

    By the way, 0.263 will do a rework of the player cards (the one that shows your stats).

    It's currently cryptic and cumbersome. I hope to fix everything in one box without the need of that shitty scrolling thing.
    Speaking of scrolling: maybe add a scrolling text for the Profile Quote no one uses.

    EDIT: I'm also looking forward to adding more lightings you can choose from. So far, it's regular visuals and enhanced visuals. Since it's pretty easy making visuals, I hope to make a lot that you guys can pick from.

    EDIT2: I also plan on resetting the Thing rating and fixing it once and for all. This will remove safe quit button too.

    EDIT3: I'll also remap the hotkeys for Transformation, once again.

    EDIT4: Oh and I patched the Y Spam so uhh...

    Okay, first off, don't be mean to the profile quote. LOL. Actually, all the experienced players use it. Mine says, "Reporting for Duty!" :p
    Don't hate, appreciate.

    Anyway, Lighting sounds like a fantastic option! I personally wouldn't mind a dark lighting without so much specularity or whatever. Some props just glow too brightly you can't even tell what they are.

    When you say you want to update the lobby profile boxes, do you mean a whole new visual setup? Or just screwing with the font and such to fit in in the box without a scrolling wheel? If there was a new visual system I could see Players' statistics lined up vertically along the left and right of the screen with the center being open.

    Like this. Instead of boxes maybe just subtle, neon lines between each marine represented by ---- (Probably a red or blue neon line)
    M represents the portrait, S represents statistics.

    M S                                                  M  S
     ----      THE THING                        ----
     M S           By Vicboy                        M  S
     ----                                                  ----
     M S                                 Planet         M  S
     ----                                                  ----
    M S                                                    M  S
     ----                                                  ----
     M S                                                  M  S
     ----                                                  ----
     M S                                                  M  S
     ----                                                  ----
     M S                                                  M  S

    Perhaps even the quote could go on the neon line below each portrait/statistics.

    Lol, if you wanted a new overhaul at least. All this work at getting this image to format correctly once I post it goes to waste otherwise xD I just wanted the diagram to be perfect :<

    Just to verify, you do refill the flamethrower by right clicking the Fuelng Station, right? I just wanna make sure I'm not doing it wrong since I can't tell.

    And would a request for a black and white lighting style with only the marines and the thing (health/energy related stuff too) colored be too greedy?

    I'm not sure if I can do that, but keeping color tags on will do.

    The Fuel station works by turning on the flame thrower while within range of the building (About 3 paces).

    That's not exactly how it works. Activating it refreshes the UI. I recently updated it so that it refreshes the UI when it replenishes.

    Thank you both for the answers on the refueling. Much appreciated.

    And just the tags is cool too.
