I haven't been on such a fun mod server in a long time. I suggest everyone try it out at some point. There are a lot of your favorite old weapons on it like the tri-mirv-nuke and a lot of new weapons like the carpet bomber. Thankyou for putting the new server up.

Ras you definately should make it into a SSO server pack and have it available to download so us 56kers can connect with less synching time. Maybe Kong can host it?

It was as low as 56 weapons and power ups. It was in the low 70's just a few days ago. There isn't a whole lot left that can be done SSO. But I'm still not done tweaking. If Kong wants to host an unfinished product, we can set that up. Othewise we'll wait for just a bit.

And I wish to holy heck people would give me some suggestions. I had exactly one: put the sight to the gunship and tree maker out farther. Someone else countered that it was more fun with up close action. Other than that, nothing. With all the brain power out there, I know there's more suggestions to be had. Keep in mind that the ultimate goal is that I want it to be fun. With all the testing I've been doing, I'm not sure what's fun and what's not. I'm sick of the whole thing!

Color, shape, size, weapon count, damage ability, reload time, guidance, graphic effects... the list is endless. Give a brother some help! And along those lines, I ask forgiveness from and the indulgence of any mod maker that sees an altered version of their hard work. As I've said to quite a few people, I'm just a mod modder. Custom meshes and all that jazz is beyond me at this point.

OK..here's a question regarding the 3 second cruise ( I think)...what is it supposed to do?? Strictly for close range , or what?? Just like to know how and when to use it.
The laser nukes go where, exactly, guided or not??
Just a few for tonight...it's 4 am, and I gotta ZZZZZ.
Great server though...had a blast..

Anything with a sight shoots absolutely straight with no guidance. The one klik cruise goes a kilometer in 3 seconds. So it's medium range but definitely no good up close.

Something about hitting your opponent with the other 3 cruise missles while he/she is spinning in the air is just more attractive somehow.

I think I'll slow the cuise down a bit so it can respond better. I duuno about AL, but the AI's are set to 1.0. ;^) That's the highest setting - unless 0 and 1 mean the opposite of what I think.

They would attack anyone with the name of Scrap Metal!

Actually, it wouldn't be any different if you just set it fer 1.0.

I agree completely. This is my favorite new server. My favorite new weapon is the Gravity Bang (or is it Gravity Bomb). The effect seems to be a lot like having a huge invisible fist slam down on the top of your tank repeatedly. I Love It! The graphic effects are nice too, especially from a little ways back.
One thing I have been waiting for is to see GoldAnt on the server. I have been wanting to see what he would do when hit with the Gravity weapon for the first time. As improbable as it sounds, I think it may leave him.........

speechless!

Gold Ant speechless? Pfft.

Thank Dudymas for the weapon. What's on my server is not quite the original, but it's close. In fact, it's been altered for the exact event that you were involved in Melon. Let the original weapon hit a plasma shield just right and it brings down the server with a geometric growth of projectiles. Lot's of fun.

The proof was the inclusion of the "1" at the end of "?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!1"
Now that's conclusive..

Dude, do you even know what angst means? I actually looked it up. It means a feeling of anxiety and depression. Now how exactly does being a little pissed off prove that?!

lololol

Trying to tell an angst ridden yute that he's angst ridden is like trying to convince a crazy man that he's crazy. But I'm glad you like the AI names.

Hi Irascible!

Your server's been up for a while and it runs good. Are you iterested in geting it listed on TMLogScan?
