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!

[TPG]SaNTa[DTM] sends word of the release of TAC 1.3. From the horse's mouth:
Team Aerial Combat version 1.3 server and client packs have been released. There is a total of 24 maps to play now and the server code has been improved and added to big time. There is to many things to list here so hop on over to the TAC web site and have a look at the manual and features pages to get the low down. Please note some new features like the APC HUD and some sounds wont work unless you have the v1.3 client pack and the server is running version 1.3 TAC server. The server and the client also need to be running version 1.11+ of Tribes.

Got Milk? updated Base Plus a tad and is looking for feedback. These are not small changes. There are major game changing features.

Last night, the staff of Tribal War and Planet Starsiege faced off against a plethora of Dynamix Dev Team members. We were expecting maybe six Dev Teamers to show, but we got so many that they had to sit some and even lend us a guy. The maps? Raindance and Snowblind. The playing field? Base Plus. It was very apparent that base plus was a whole new world throughout the course of the game. I tried to go Heavy Offense, I really did, it just wasn't happening. The demos are up, we should have quite a collection once we get everyone's in. We got trounced, 8-0/8-1, but if you'd like to watch the carnage, pick up some of the demos.

Tonight the staff or TribalWar and PlanetStarsiege took on the Tribes 2 development team and got our uhm... rears handed to us. Scores were 8-1 on Raindance and 8-0 on Snowblind. We'll have some demos up a bit later of it all, so everyone can make fun of us

z2.old_skul, UVaLAN 2 admin, posted in our forums regarding an attendance cap on the much-anticipated LAN party. Here's the deal:
Basically, I'm going to let people confirm their registration by paying. If you're already registered using PayPal, just process that, and you're set. If you're sending Cheater a check, get it in the mail now, because if he gets it after we hit 160 paid attendees, he'll just send it back to you. Registration is on a "first paid, gets in" basis.Hurry up and pay, folks, or you'll miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hump Rayn's leg and play Tribes at the same time, and in the flesh! For more information on UVaLAN 2, visit Cheater's Wayside.

...sometime in the late fall, as Dave and the rest of Dynamix have told us ad nauseum. Hey, if the Dev Team doesn't know the official release date, how can Amazon.com? Anyway, here are the release dates projected by the three places I've seen taking Tribes 2 preorders:
Guess all we can do is hold our breath, and grovel to Dave a little bit more.
