Are we at "Phase 12" yet? Somebody said pigs would have jetpacks at Phase 12.

I sincerely wish them the best in their efforts.
It's really quite amazing how many times a Tribes sequel has been tried despite having fallen on its face numerous times. Not bad for something that was essentially a fluke and merely a spin-off of the franchise that everybody actually cared about at the time.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this.

Yeah, you are probably right. My memory is getting cloudy as I get older. Early onset alzheimers or something.

Sounds like they took the T:V source code with new content based on the time scale of release. I'm going to assume no modding and horrible physics. I want to care, but I just can't.

Code is portable between the two with minimal changes depending on whats being copied, which in this case is mostly likely all of the physics required for sliding (T:V didn't have skiing) and jetting.

You sure they would have access to the T:V source from Irrational Games?

*shutter* What's so difficult about porting the T1 physics? Is there some kind of bizarre IP surrounding it? Also, wasn't the netcode the biggest issue with T:V? I remember the lag/packet loss due to some coding errors making it unbearable.

All the excitement that pops up on other sites every time Tribes is mentioned anywhere is pretty telling

If they do a decent job with this game it should get a pretty good following
