Wow, that's an awesome server. Anybody who loved the good old "You and me against the world" server needs to check this one out. Similar setup (human vs a ton of AIs), but the modifications really live up to the name.

Low friction, so your tank is ultra-manuverable.

High-frequency spawning of Nukes, Matters, and Shadows

Altering of Nukes, Matters and Shadows so that they're even MORE powerful.

Removal of weaker stock weapons.

Beefing up of the remaining ones. Dirtballs, MRLs, and Wasps (among others) are rapid fire and hug the ground.

Sure, it's a little laggy. But when you take out 16 marauding AIs with a nuke right before the HUGE cloud of plasma shots, cruise missiles, and nukes from the mass of AIs blows you into teeny tiny pieces, it's hard not to chuckle in glee at the amount of carnage.

No, but you need the 50mm cannon and the Rush Flag Pack.

Both of those (as well as the server's IP, since the Master is down) can be found at www.boomstickjoes.com

I'm glad ya'll are enjoing it

No extra maps, just the 50mm gun, although I'm debating on removing it. It's a one shot/kill weapon, but not very affective agenst 20 AI's storming you.

I was beaten to it. hahhaha

Actually, it came in handy once at least. I don't know if you added the same insane tracking to it that you did to the dirtball, but I was on DM Caldera, and all the AIs were about to come storming out of the crater at me. I had the 50mm, and just started firing in their direction as they came flying over the ridge. I took out about half of them before the ones that I missed landed and exacted some serious retribution for their fallen comrades.

That server uses stock maps. Are you playing with a full version of TM?
