Crunchy e-mailed me earlier with these updates:
I got several requests to abbreviate the team names that run off the edge of the HUDs. I've added a facility to do this, you need to add to TribesconfigCrunchyObjectiveAbbreviations.cs any tribes that you want to be abbreiviated. I've included the standard tribe names and some European tribes. I've added an option to Objective HUD to change the initial value of the dropped flag timer, this can be different for different mods or servers. I now get the value for the F&R timer from the server messages. Don't forgetCheck 'em out at his website: www.planetstarsiege.com/crunchy

Cheater wrote in from Chicago via AOL to let us know the status of UVALAN2:
"UVALAN2 is filling up incredibly fast if you have any intention of attending please sign up. We are halfway to our 120 player goal on the third day of registration. We have an online registration form at http://www.cheaterswayside.com. Just fill out the form and check off the method of payment that you will most likely use (check or creditcard). You do not have to pay at the time that you register but we will be taking the first 120 paid players. I will see if I can line up more connections if we reach our limit early and add players as space provides. We are totally overwhelmed by the support from this incredible community."UVALAN2 @ Cheater's Wayside: http://www.cheaterswayside.com

Dave Georgeson revealed in a recent thread on the TPBB that we can expect to see Tribes 2 a bit earlier than a lot of folks have been anticipating.
You heard it here first...Well, thanks Dave. Now, how about telling us when the beta starts?

Its good to see that the Tribes community is doing something original and cool in its live game broadcasts, and its great to see that people are taking notice. Tycho, from Penny Arcade, was discussing the idea of video game spectators and what not and got pointed in the direction of WSBN and TSN. Check out this little news blurb:
"[WSBN and TsN] are (for all intents and purposes) the equivalent of "radio broadcasts", but they detail the play-by-play action in a good match of Tribes! I'm downloading some games in their Archival sections (because no games are being covered at this very moment), but both sites are laid out well enough that you could easily find a game-time and hook up to their streamin', steamin' digital audio. I've heard that the announcer called "WarWitch" makes a living as a professional disc-jockey, I'm looking forward to checking out some of his stuff. One of them just finished downloading: Pre-game commentary, good sound mixing... This is very cool, and clearly a labor of love. Nice work there, WW "Tribes Shoutcast Network: http://tsn.tribalwar.com

sLaM has created a 5150 Soundpack and posted it on our forums. Here's what he has to say about it:
I made a soundpack and had enough requests that I revamped and uploaded it to our ftp site. I added some of my favorites from the TF soundpack and added a bunch of new sounds. I also included the wazzup sounds...I have also ported the soundpack over for EVERY male and female voice. So pick your favorite voice, and download that one. And remember, when you play on a server, everyone on that server will still be able to hear your "normal" base voices, even those without the soundpack. That's why I made this, I liked the idea of the soundpack, but I hated for ppl on the server not to be able to hear my normal sounds.You can choose your voice and download the appropriate soundpack here.

Received this email from Mhaddy of the Junkyard:
After several hours of resizing the small res. armours on Tribes2.com, cleaning up the resized images, saving, updating and making them look reasonably nice finally, FINALLY I've completed the Tribes 2 Armor page on the Junkyard (with the ones that have been released)! All armours that have been released are posted up thumb-nailed and you have 1028*960, 800*747 and 640*598 res. images to chose from. I hope you enjoy them as much as I spent slaving over them!See the original images at Tribes2.com, and then head over to the Tribes 2 Armor Page.

Cowboy sent this along:
Oops! Apparently a bug from TribesIP version 3.0 never got fixed! This was a seldom-occurring glitch that kept some people from being able to select their player through TribesIP, it would even affect some scripts in the game. TribesIP 3.5a fixes all that, and seems rock solid... so get this version now! Thanks! --> http://www.planetstarsiege.com/cowboy/tribesip.htm

The official Tribes 2 site, fittingly addressed at http://www.tribes2.com has just opened its doors. Thanks to Dave for pointing out its completeness. Looking very nice, if i do say so myself, go check it out. This site contains new concept art, screenshots - including some of the amazing new HPC model in action, information, renderings - including some of previously unseen armor skins, and a link to a few versions of the popular E3 movie we've probably all drooled over.

In our ever-informative forums, Dave G. from Dynamix posted the following tidbits:
Talked to Mark Frohnmayer today. There's been a lot of requests for Base+ to be released publicly. He's in favor, and so am I. Soooo...after a few more tweaks, he's going to package it up and release it to y'all. You can then tear into it on servers that can support a load.
