Well, well, well!

Post by BIYA » Sun Apr 01, 2018 3:21 am

Had a house fire last year sometime and it got me thinking of all the stuff that went with the house. Mainly what was in storage on my pc that I've kept over the years of new rigs. The original models (Lol) for the HideNSeek maps, and a host of other failed and tested maps I fiddled with back then. Been about 14yrs since this game touched my heart and I'm grateful for how much joy and friendship I got out of it. JeffM, you still as grumpy and serious as you used to be man? Sorry you and the other devs had to deal with me hahahaha. Looking back I've caused a few stirs but I'm happy to see at least one of my maps still up on the server list even though the game isn't active as much as it used to be. I'll keep an eye on this lot and see where ya'll take this game and if anyone remembers me from my 11 year absence and wants me to pop in a server for a few hours, feel free to ask. Honestly can't believe I was able to get this Username logged in again.

It's been a long time BIYA, but welcome back. :D

Several massive changes have happened over the years, but we're all still here, or at least some of us are. :)

Those who are critical of me, I'll likely be the same of them. ~Zehra
There's always something to remember and it's been a game I love. ~Zehra
The time spent is a time which can never be regained, so it's a time to enjoy. ~Zehra
The decisions we make are the ones we look forward too and the ones we regret. ~Zehra
The details and the skill of knowing and applying them is what excellence is made of. ~Zehra
The best player is the one who knows what to do and when and applies it successfully. ~Zehra
There's a difference between knowing my name and knowing me, one shows respect to my name and the other is to who I am. ~Zehra

And a bunch of new members, including me, have joined the community. I joined last fall, but I've been playing the game for years, but had never thought about registering. I've seen Planet Mofo go through TONS of changes over the years. The old mofo server with the old building textures and early rules is gone, but its successor, the modern planet mofo, has brought about a new age of the Apocalypse. I've seen many players over the years, although some I don't see anymore, which is disappointing, but at least there are new members to help this community grow. I've no longer heard from some players that really were leaders in the community, and on the servers, as well as those who just played to have fun: [honc], Tribomb, Ultar, tbe, and a list of others whose names I don't remember. However, I still commonly see people like optic_delusion, D-FENS, Microchip, Kierra, onelap, Green Manalashi, and many others, still helping to ensure that others playing will have a good time, especially on some of our old classic maps, like Louman's Mystic Valley and 4-Team Missile War. I enjoy seeing what we can do, and I hope everyone had a good Easter!

Respectfully,
Buzzy.
Beetle's gotta buzz. Of course, this buzzing does not go unnoticed.

Good to see ya' BIYA,
Yeah, more than a few of us are still here. Some things change, some stay the same.
I'd say there's been a little bit of a resurgence, in the last eight months to a year. (a little).
If I pay attention I see a lot of old timers showing up to poke around for a bit.
Hope you stay awhile.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

Wow indeed...I also got a blast from the past with a recent PM, and when I get home tonight I'm gonna get on with the most recent version. See how much rust wears in the fingers..lots of late nights at mofo.
