Some unknown scripter has released a new server side script called Speed-O-Meter. It does exactly what you think: It displays your current velocity, and also tracks your peak velocity. Since the velocity information is server-side, it only works while hosting your own server, but it could still be a useful tool while working on routes offline and such. Before you ask: no I can't develop a client-side version. If nothing else, its interesting. I was playing with it some while I tested it, I can't seem to get my speed past 60 m/s. Then again, I'm not the speediest fella out there. Anyways, those who are interested can get the details or download it on my scripting site: Rayn's Bucket O'Tribes. Post your top speeds on the forums too, I'm interested.

I thought I'd post this so Rayn wouldn't have to embarass himself by posting his own news again...

Mark "Got Milk?" Frohnemeyer posted on our forums tonight requesting player feedback. Straight from the man himself:
Well, had some problems with my servers crashing on mission change, so I've got them up with infintespawn going and a custom map rotation (no broadside/scarabrae, + some of the balanced / opencalls). I'd love to get some big games going and see some feedback to the changes that were put in (pre-game buys and flag stand caps).What are you doing still reading this? Answer the man here.

Euro-tribesplayers, which runs the European Tribes League, has released for download the entire candidate map pack for the upcoming ETL 3 season. Players can play the maps and then vote for their favorites to be included in tournament play. Sounds good to me. Download the maps from the Euro-Tribes files section, and if you're interested vote for your favorites.

A little note from Boots regarding some recent miscellaneous projects, from the good folks at Planet Starsiege:
For those of you who admired the compass shown in Bigbunnys POD on the 21st June, I've recreated it and posted it at the INVENTORY, simple_compass.zip. Also added were an alternative iconset for Crunchys ItemHUD, and the training map, Boot_Camp.Want it? Here you go.

I received the following in an email from Dweller, of Fire Team Alpha. Short and sweet:
Fire Team Alpha has released Renegades Classic! Classic is a throwback to 2.0, with all of the same weapon and armor settings, but with the bug fixes and admin features of the new versions. New coding makes servers much more stable which will keep them running longer without crashes. You can grab it at the Renegades site on PlanetStarsiege.Interested? Check it out at the link above.

Only one day left until UVALAN II's official announcement. As of this writing, 110 players have reserved their spots on the list. With a total cap of 160, and 82 remaining attendees who have yet to pay, well.....you do the math. Don't delay another moment; send your money in to reserve your spot. 'Cause according to old skul, after tomorrow's "official announcement", the remaining few spots are going to be gone faster than BlueNose's cap routes.

TF_Baxter sent over a corrected version of the Domino map for us to make available for download. Please distribute this to all your favorite server admins so they can have it on tap. The problem lies in the placement of one of the forcefields. Apparently when the power goes down the forcefield retreats to a Z position below ground where a simple object on top of it can keep it from returning to its proper location. If that happens the whole point of the map is lost. Anyway, pick up the goods here and shoutouts to the TF guys for getting this to us:

..a question that was raised in our forums about the homing capabilities of various Tribes 2 weaponry, the Dev Team's Diamondback (perhaps in a moment of compelling sympathy after he so conclusively destroyed us last night), had this to say:
Mortars do not have homing capabilities. If you have a teammate using the Targeting Laser, what you do get is an aiming point for your mortar, making it far easier to hit a target.I know this is old stuff, but my mommy always says that if one person has a question, other people do too and are too afraid to ask it .. so now we all know.
Want to read the rest of the thread? It's here.
And Thanks, Diamondback!
