I'll try to make it, but not promises since I'm using a modded version of the GOG version of I'76 Nitro.

EDIT: So technically I made it, but as of 8:24ish PM, Pacific time, I can't quite connect to the game. I've got other stuff to do ATM so bug me over Steam if you're ever up for a game.

Well, to be honest ol' Light' faded out about 8:30 and went into testing mode with Tex.

We still weren't able to resolve his crashing issues but we'll schedule a remote session and see if we can copy a working model onto his PC and get our weekly roll-call up to 4.

:D

The match was 70% chewing the fat and 30% deathmatching, though personally I didn't bother deathmatching.


Possible gamemode ideas:
-Sardines (basically the reverse of Hide and Go Seek). Could be perfect considering that most people join *intermittently* rather than all at once.
-I think I once came up with a gamemode idea that amounts to "here's a route through the entire map, line up players on both sides of the same route and see who can make it all the way through". Could be done well with a long, skinny CTF map.
-Some sorta "protect the VIP" mode.
-Demolition derby racing?

...not to be a downer but most of your ideas have been played as regular events back in the day.

:?

-Sardines = "Find the Foot"
-Drive the map = "Ruins" et. al.
-VIP Mode = "Moth Escort"
-Demolition Derby Racing = "Armed Limited Class Racing"

The "sad" part is that we don't really have the drivers to play most of the games with any level of entertainment. You need at least 4 for Moth Escort and any races with combat involved degrade to FFA's with less than three people.

I'm up for starting to mix up the TNE's a little bit like I was doing back in May but to be honest, I'm really busy and nothing kills my motivation like planning an event other than "Find the Foot / FFA" at Vigilante's Peak / Paradise / Stock Map and having *ZERO* other players attend.

I honestly don't need to practice the maps! :D

If we can rally 3 other players for the next session I'll go back to trying to try to make an interesting event. Elsewise, I'll just be cutting and pasting the details from the previous week into the current week.

Thanks!
