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.

I just finished off some Tribal Wall Windows wallpaper. The image is a collage of the various Tribes 2 images that have been released. Its designed for 800x600, but it stretches out nicely to fill the whole screen on my 1152x800. Here's a little preview:

Incite.com has decided to cater to its gaming audience with a sweeping preview of T2, including a Flash movie screen-type thing with ever-changing screenshots and captions. Want a little?
As you probably know, the developers at Dynamix are assuring us that this time around there will be a strong focus on the clan aspect of the game, allowing online gamers to join up with or create their own clans very quickly and easily. This is only one of the improvements being made, but it's a big one that fans of the original Tribes are very excited about.The rest of the article is here, and once you're done with that there are five more links to other Incite T2 articles at the bottom. Thanks again, Madhatter!

I received an e-mail from Madhatter about MPOG.com's E3 and Tribes 2 review, which we missed when it was first released. It's the same general idea as the others, but includes some details that seem to be new. Here's a taste:
The graphics are simply fantastic. The projectile trails are incredible (especially on the new guided rocket launcher). Explosions are bright and detailed. The player models and skins are nicely done, and highly detailed. When looking down, you not only see your character's legs and feet, as demonstrated in previous videos, but you also see the horns on the Bioderms. The terrain is lush and varied, and the water... ahhhhhhh the water... the water is not only fun to look at, but also fun to play with. Waves will lap at the shore, with water levels rising and falling. An additional piece of eye candy comes in the form of the new cloaking pack, which casts a shimmering translucent effect over you.To read the entire article, click here.

In case you hadn't heard (and keeping in mind that you may never hear again), Mötley Crüe is doing the soundtrack for Tribes 2. The great 80s arena rock band has written some songs specifically for the game (including one called .. umm .. Tribes), and have granted an interview to IGN.com. Here's a piece:

E5, which until last night held the number 13 rung on the OGL ladder, has announced that they have retired from OGL play. The decision was driven by the collective decision of the Beastyman, GodErnst, Dweezil and MrChad to leave the clan as they leave E5 itself. Goodbyes are posted on our forums. Here's a taste, from Beastyman:
Anyway, we've decided that our match vs. Infinite Facet tonight will be E5's last OGL match. In two days the halls of Ellicott will be silent and [E5] will no longer be on OGL. Leading [E5] has been a large part of my life for the past year and a half, but all good things must come to an end, and it seems fitting that [E5] leaves OGL at the same time that half of our members leave Ellicott. I'll probably still be around in IRC occasionally, as Im sure most people will, and you may even catch me pubbing on cheaters once in a while, but at least for now, Myself and most of the rest of the team is going to take a much-deserved vacation from a Video-GameThere's more to say, but this isn't the place to do it. You can read the rest of this thread and post your own thoughts and sentiments here.

Ah yes, the countdown for Tribes 2. The days seem like weeks; the hours like days. We salivate over each new screenshot as if they were gold, patiently anticipating the game's release. We've seen the pics of the environments, the skins, and the vehicles. But it's only a panacea for our excitement. To add even more pain to our period of waiting, Tribalwar is proud to premiere a new series of screenshots, including the "official first Tribes 2 Mid-Air" shot! You won't find these anywhere else, folks. Our deepest thanks to both Sierra Studios and Dynamix for releasing these pics to you - the guys and gals who form the nucleus of our Tribes Community. What are you waiting for? Check out the shots here!

5150 takes on Jamz tonight for the #1 rung on the OGL Ladder. Match time is 10 EST, and this promises to be a fun game. Wonderdog and Beatstick have the call, so you can count on some really um...vivid descriptions *winks at wonderdog*.

Tribesplayers offers the following advice regarding the Tribes v1.11 patch:
1) The new patch installer "Wise" is allowing partial installs of the wrong patches. Once the wrong patch is applied the users will need to install from the CD. Users need to verify the version number they have and which one they are getting before applying any patch.
