    WoOT!! sweet!!! but I noticed after tampering with some speed/jump commands that most weapons in UT are too slow...Nothing that can't be fixed I guess ^.^+

    The thing is, if ppl can move faster and jump higher, th're gonna stop strafing around like morons and the whole gameplay experience is gonna be a lot better.

    Hehe that would be cool

    I had a Game Design class, and one of my assignments was to create a game design doc, so i created it on the next installment of Tribes as a mod using the UT3 engine. After our assignments were done we had the opportunity to head up to Avalanche studios to present our ideas to get feedback from the developers. Was a neat experience.

    ya most of the weapons were way too slow. skilled ppl could easily move around 200/300 + mph. heck at some point I even ended up going faster than my Spinfusor disc. LOL I liked TV because not only did you have to aim like a freakin god, you also had to move insanely fast to survive. Oh well, I wish I had the modding knowledge to make this come true.

    If the game was close in design to Tribes though, VUG would shut it down. And whether the Tribes community would adopt players with jetpacks but a totally different game with different weapons is doubtful. If the Tribes community had been willing to bend a bit on game design, then T:V wouldn't have died like it did. The community boycotted it because it wasn't identical to T2, and essentially killed their own game universe.

    I bought Tribes: Vengeance on clearance (after having played a little Tribes 2) and thought that it had nice looks and a very nice feel to it and I liked the movement. However, I thought the weapons sucked big time. (It takes more than a Spinfusor to make a decent game.)

    They don't, but if the look and feel of the game was exactly the same as Tribes, there could be some legal issues.
    If the player models, vehicles, weapons, etc. were clone rip-offs, but the name was simply changed to "Clans" or similar, I would expect a lawsuit.

IMHO IG never should have even created an SP mode, they should have spent all of their resources on MP, then T:V would have been excellent.

    That said... a Tribes style game for UE3 would be great. The issue is that you would have to be quite far from a Tribes clone since VUG is a really touchy company.

    Personally, I played T2 and T:V a lot, and I preferred a lot of its gameplay over UT (did I just say what I think I said?? )

    If a similar game were done, it would have to be done right.
    VUG really screwed the Tribes community big time. I still play Tribes2. I played it for 5 years+ Not bad for a game that 7+ years old. If I had the Bux I would go back to the Torque Engine and do it right. There was so much support for the game more than I have seen for any game. There are over 5,000+ plus maps made for Tribes2 and that just CTF maps not including the other game types. There were tons of scripts IE: The Panama Jack Scripts. Voice Packs were great. ( Osirus Voice Pack and D6 pack ) The Server Admin commands were awesome!! ( Tricon 2 ). The Mods like Renegades, Ninja, Construction, Version 2, and War2003 are awesome. There is really nothing wrong with Tribes 2 to date. All it really needs now is just a face lift. Meaning New Graphics for scenery weapons and vehicles thats it!.

    Thats why im looking forward to UT3 The graphics look great and the game play looks awesome. ( if its like UT2004 Ill be play'n UT3 alot )

    Side Note:

    But it would be nice to see a Tribes mod for UT3 lol

    Cya
