True, but having the option to fly up and down can be useful for dodging projectiles while firing at the enemies in aerial combat.

I was adding this in before you did this post actually, haha. The jetpack will refuel up to 25% when not in use for a few seconds, there will still be fuel stations here and there which will refuel you MUCH faster than the regenerating fuel though.

Gonna need help with that one, I have absolutely no idea how zscript works.
Anyhow, I'll have a new version up tomorrow, probably not with new levels
in a few days with tweaked levels, weapons and monsters. Weapons feel better now IMO, like the shotgun now uses the altfire as the primary, and the new altfire is a grenade-like attack which can deal some nice damage. And monsters are tweaked a bit to be more fun to fight against, and the tire enemy isn't a buggy mess anymore (though it still could use some rewriting with its attack)
Till then, here's a screenie.
