Got Milk? Wants You

Submitted by: Calliope @ 10:03 PM | Saturday, June 24, 2000 | (url: )

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).

Hypothesizing about what it is or isn't good or bad without playing it first, while welcome, is not as useful to us as actual gameplay feedback.

Thanks!
-Mark

Europe Does Maps

Submitted by: Calliope @ 09:23 PM | Saturday, June 24, 2000 | (url: )

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.

Renegades Classic Released

Submitted by: Calliope @ 09:09 PM | Saturday, June 24, 2000 | (url: )

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.

1 day left....

Submitted by: Bacchus @ 02:46 AM | Saturday, June 24, 2000 | (url: )

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.

Fixed Version of Domino Released

Submitted by: Rayn @ 01:52 AM | Saturday, June 24, 2000 | (url: )

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:

Just To Clarify ..

Submitted by: Calliope @ 10:44 AM | Friday, June 23, 2000 | (url: )

..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.

The Missile Launcher, on the other hand, does have homing capabilities if a) a teammate paints a target with the Targeting Laser or b) you aim at a target long enough for auto-lock to engage, otherwise it's dumb-fire.
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!

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.

BasePlus Changes

Submitted by: Rayn @ 01:52 AM | Friday, June 23, 2000 | (url: )

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

  • CTF doesn't require the flag in base to cap
  • You can buy favorites during the match start wait time
What that means is if your flag is not home, you can cap by touching it in the field. Very interesting. Also, check our demos tonight to watch us buy favorites during the warmup, which was cool .. but I don't think most folks knew how to use it Needless to say, I was surprised. Provide your feedback here.
