It's Race time. You will need the new modded weapons, the October pack. Get it here: http://www.hallsted.org/Oct-2003-Race-Server-Addons.zip

Hope to see you at the race line.

Very cool. The Highlites:

- Racers were: Sailor, Queen, Jon, CyberCannon, Teulk, 666, and the newest racer John B.
- On Banks, I took out John B with a nova, one of the few times I did not frag myself with that weapon.
- John B. out maneuvered Teulk to take 1st on the clay hills map. If you look at the results for Clay hills, I missed a gate. I never finished my 1st lap.
- Wanted to show John B, the ring map with a mite…too much power. The centripetal force sent him flying. I, on the other hand, set a new speed record of 38 sec. YES!
- Queen wants to share her experience with being shot out of 1st with a particle driver. I have been there too many times.
- CyberCannon won 2 races, before Teulk chewed us up and spit us out with 8 wins.
- Famous quote from 666 when he was at the start gate with das Tornado, “ Bye, Bye all of you!”
- Another famous quote from 666 on the Clay Hills map, “Ntus, I missed a gate!”

Will get the screen shots up soon. Thanks for coming.

The comments from the previous week had me worried as to the lag and the weapons....however, it didn't seem that bad. I think the only thing that affects the playability of the game is the plasma wave...it really wreaks havoc for tanks not even close to the whomever sets it off.
And then of course, there is the almighty Tornado, and the blessed Ow missile...those are the true P.I.T.A's..
Was fun...liked seeing the Canadian flags on 666's tank...felt right at home!! Almost a theme night!!!

The only problem with that was that you missed me. I made good use of that afterburner to get out of the way.

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again.
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Teulk...I calmed down the flaming boulder, wave motion, and electric shock...they were lagging the server. That is why it was not that bad.

remember last week?

that happened to me TWICE.

right after the start, WAYYY far away. I had a message "Well, I'm out of this one...have fun"

then I actually managed to get back to third place before you hit me WAAYYY far away. 43 seconds later the race was over, and I had just touched down...

Oh, wait, no. If tanks were ment to fly they would have been born with little bags of salted peanuts.

Yes...I get to chose a new weapon. And it will be Dark Nova turret will replace the Dark Nova that is on the tank hull. That should make matter better. Everything will stay the same on the dark nova turret as the current dark nova on the hull...except that the weapons mounts on the turret.

I almost forgot John's comment on the "In the Ring" map as he went flying out of the ring with his mite.

The link is here: http://www.hallsted.org/race-ladders/blt/in-the-ring.html

Screen shots make such a difference...you actually remember what happens during the race.
