After testing the Black Widow tank on my Hell Server just now, I found out from another player that the new tank is INVISIBLE to those that have not downloaded it! This is a VERY bad situation created since technically one can now play with invisible tanks.

I had brought this up during the Beta's and was assured that it would not happen - but after testing it, I see that it does (unfortunately, I don't think anyone ever actually tested it). This bug needs a fix soon...

Until then, my servers will not be carrying any special tanks except durring the "Deadliest Deathmatch" game.

They should be white cubes....or textured if a game texture is used....hmmm

...I guess the box is only 1 meter square, So it would be hard to see....

...now on fix list...

Unfortunately I was in the tank that was invis to others, otherwise I could have given a more detailed description. The person I was asking about it could not see me though - even after I rammed him...
