Ok, here I go again...

1: I like the mouse changes the veiw and the turret follows slower - but only if there is a ingame toggle for the turret follow part.

2: Could you make the dots on the mini-map team specific - maybe Green for your team, but a red dot with a ring of the team color for the enemy team - Its a pain when entering a battle in team-play with no team score and you don't know if the enemies are allied or not!

3: Could you make different tanks have slightly different advantages in DM (not race). Basically, have tanks that have different speed and different main weapons (same ammo). Have all the changes be small, but have tanks that have a charged bolt, a shell, a grenade, a dumb-fire missle, a plasma pulse, etc as the main weapon Mesh and Texture of it's projectile. It would make some of you're new tank designs much more fun (the one on the Tron screenshot looks like it could really use a plasma pulse as the primary weapon).
A fire ball would be nice! Have the normal shell mesh, but put the Nuke Explo texture on it. Same with a Blue and White version with the matter and plasma explo textures.

Also, 2 questions:
A: Approx when is the next beta going to be out.
B: Approx when is the final version going to be out.

Also, a King of the Hill scoring system would be nice. Considering that we already play king of the hill alot on Ramps...

i don't quite like ur "different tanks, act different" idea

i look at the different tanks as kinda like choosing a skin in a shooter

making each tank different, would only bring loss of balance, and frustration

and *GASP* your asking for a release date?, isn't that kind of breaking the golden rule?

what about the "when it's done policy?"

or does lda actually have a set date?

Release date...hmmm.

As this is our first CD release of a game, it’s hard to pin down an exact date.

The disc manufacturer tells me that they need roughly 15 days to make and wrap the game. It’ll be in a Digipak CD format, like a lot of music CDs. Jewel cases break too easily.

“Overnight” delivery of the gold master to them from our location will add 2 days.

We’ll need to proof their work. Add 2 to 3 days.

Add 2 days to ship the finished CD’s to the Digital River warehouse.

Thus, the game should be shipping roughly 3 weeks after we’ve finished up work on it.

As for finishing the work, we seem to still be on schedule for November 1st.

The only unknown at this point is the single player “ladder-style play” for racing and deathmatch. Tweaking might add a week to our schedule.

Release date...hmmm...somewhere between November 20th and 30th

I'd still like a mumble*bsd or solaris
server to run it on. Its all very well
running a dedicated server on Bunnyland,
but it cant be a production thing for the
other 30000 lusers we have unless it can
run unattended, remotely. (Id offer to
port it, but I have zero free time.)

Got too much free time, Synack? Heh. Well, I've heard of the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, but that's only in the context of the band the KLF. Think it might also have somethin' to do with Freemasonry, but I'm not sure.

I like pie, but I LOVE TM!
