|Toonces' Oldest Daughter Gently Taunts the Local Gamers|
|Posted by Toonces T. Cat on Saturday, April 5, 2007 2:00PM CDT|
Earlier this year, Delia, my oldest daughter paid her Grandmother a visit in Southern Illinois. While there, she dropped in on the local gaming scene at the Dragon's Den Cyber-Cafe. Delia made a video that's now posted on her blog. The humor is seriously arcane and won't be obvious to any non-gamers. Most of you will understand it as you're either going to know all the people that she's talking to...in one incarnation or another...or, you are one of the people she's talking to!
|The Return of the Dead Kitty's UT2004 Server is Imminent|
|Posted by Toonces T. Cat on Saturday, March 17, 2007 6:00PM CDT|
New Background for the Student Machines
The new server will kick things off with 130 maps spread out across four different game-types including: Capture the Flag (CTF), Onslaught (ONS), Vehicle Capture the Flag (VCTF), and the modification game-type Vehicle Invasion (INVO). The game play will mimic that of the UT99 server as closely as is possible. Game speed will be set at 130% of normal and air-control will hold at 35%. Low Gravity will continue to be the standard as will the Translocator in all game-types. The classic UT99 Sniper Rifle will be available on most of the maps and it will provide "Boost" to same team players. New mutators will include the Quad Jump, which perfectly suits the many large and open levels available, and "Vehicle Unlock" which makes all vehicles and turrets available to both teams at all times...The option of car-jacking the enemy's vehicles adds another dimension to the games.
The server will be set to have a minimum of 8 Bots in the game, but with the students playing, they will rarely be seen. If you're looking for players on the box, the students begin to populate the machine at around 8:15AM CST and usually, by Noon, there are 12 to 14 people in the game. The Student Union stays open until around 8:00PM CST and there will be at least a few students playing until they kick them out and lock the doors.
Several of the Special Weapons Also Return
Also returning will be Mr. Evil's fantastic Firechucker, or Flame-Thrower, which is the ultimate weapon in Car Park's corrugated pipe passages. The Red Team's weapons will throw red through yellow flames, while the Blue Team's will shoot blue to white colored flames. Either variety of fire will burn an enemy to cinders in mere seconds. Finally, Mr. Evil's wonderful PIC, or Personal Ion Cannon, is also back. Be sure to leave yourself plenty of room when using this puppy as the splash damage will kill you as quickly as the other team if you're in range.
