What was the mining server all about anyway? I sounds pretty cool. Before I left I was on some server with dancing cookiedough boxes. I accumulated so much ammo I was able to call in 100 airstrikes at once. Almost died laughing.

I'll see if I can host something - but first I'd have to know what you are talking about. I know what the cookie dough is but don't know anything about flyin tanks or dancing.

I've got bandwidth!

Just briefly played with this "mining server" - Kong helped me and sent it via icq. Different. Swamers makes some hills and 120mm makes a big hole?

send what you got to karl@karllois.com and I'll see what I can cook up or maybe weatherman, hammer or anyone else.

thx

Paranor (and others who may not know),

I think it was RC who setup and hosted the mining guild server, with the participation of Dudymas and perhaps others.

I don't want to sound like an expert since I only played there a few times, but the goal in life on that server was not fragging (although sometimes Dudy misbehaved), but terrain deformation ... digging VERY big holes ... tunneling all the way through mountains, etc. To that end, some weapons were modded to be insanely overpowered in order to make them good mining tools. Some of those holes were so deep, the only way out was to Alt-K yourself.

We had a few good jousting matches on that server as well ... lining up across a flat plain ... gunning the engines ... and plowing into each other head-on at 150 mph.

Ahhhh ... boys and their toys.

Mining and jousting sounds like fun. Diggin holes and rammin Heads, now these are guy things for sure.
The bazooka would be a great mining tool, I am sure there are a few other newer weapons that would be suited to the job which weren't around when these servers were originally up.

Absolutely!

One example that springs to mind is the Tornado. It'd be awsome if it dug down while it swirled and traveled. Instant Grand Canyon

What does microwave server mean?

Just one comment about the mining server I'll like to say. It use to be up when TM wasn't getting many people on the servers. And sometimes it was the only server with humans so of course i went in there, but I never could understand the fascination of making holes it just got so boring i typically went to an empty server to face off with bots instead. I will admit, at times it was fun but i really had to be in the mood.

I have it on my local PC and ran it locally once. Maybe I"ll run it as a server later this week.
