Being naked in public isn't just ok for pets now. It's ok for everyone. Being naked also trained my disguise at the police station, although it wasn't a permitted disguise in the restricted areas.

Hm, it will display it as okay, but your disguise checks will still be a huge penalty, so I wouldn't recommend exploiting that bug. ;)

Thus making it fantastic for training disguise.
Also, could you please put the broken version up for download somewhere labled as Loony Tunes Version or something? Cartoon Crime Squad?

I meant to, but I think I deleted all copies I kept of it. :(

If someone sends me a copy, I can rename it and keep it uploaded.

No, it starts loaded and you get nine clips with it, but that's it. Let me know if you are able to find another one, because that would be a bug.

I've heavily overpowered it: It is essentially a shotgun critical hit with every shot, and it can blow limbs off.

I don't know if I agree with the existence of a Desert Eagle. After all, it's only practical to use in movies. Not in real life.

Ah, so you can only ever find 1 loaded Deagle with 9 clip?

I suppose it shall be enshrined somewhere after being used to gun down pesky conservatives.

Is it just me or am I no longer able to solicit donations from people I've persuaded? o.o

Heh, it's not much more impractical than the .44 magnum revolver already in the game. If I had "real life" in mind when I put the Desert Eagle into the game, I would have done the following things differently:

1. You would be able to buy both the gun and extra ammo for it.
2. It would not be able to blow limbs off.
3. It would have damage similar to the existing magnum revolver, and both would have their damage reduced somewhat.

I didn't do those things because its inclusion is for cool factor purposes. Making it Hollywood powerful (even though it's just unique for being a magnum semi-automatic) and only accessible by cracking the CEO's safe (and then you have 70 shots before you have to retire it) serves to make it a very special and original weapon.

Yeah, I cut that feature, it was both grindy and overpowered. It's replaced by the option to just stop the meetings.

Okay, just making sure it wasn't broken! Curses, now I gotta go do real work :P

As a preview for the next minor release, I'm working on some changes to make the game a bit more survivable. First, stealthy characters can roll to sneak past alerted enemies when the alarm goes up, instead of getting spotted by everyone. This lets thieves escape an alerted building more easily and allows lone agents to escape from a siege more easily as well. Second, your founder will take less damage in combat by virtue of the principle that it's not heroic to die at the first whiff of enemy fire. There are still nearly instant kills, like getting shot in the heart, but a .22 to the back the head won't be as deadly. You're welcome to contribute any other ideas for making the combat a bit less brutal (without sacrificing the flavor).

And I'm working on license plates.

Let me check this, this has all the 4.05 changes, save the rampages, right?

and what was so different about it? I rarely noticed a difference.
