Can’t wait to see the second spin 2 win wheel, I wasted hundreds of thousands of units on the first one when the casino released so I eagerly await doing that again. Corrosion looks great visually so far and I’m hoping you can shove zombies into the sludge with the sonic shotgun airblast because that would be funny I think

Condo I/O

It’s called we do a little trolling

So why is there a “killallplayers” option?

it’s useful for when you need to kill all players

It’s an example of what tools could be given that effect the entire game server. That function could be useful if you wanted to make a puzzle map that has a timer with a lose condition. Other tools will be available.
