Shell Shock is Live

Post by Dutchrai » Wed Dec 15, 2004 10:03 am

As of today, Shell Shock is back into the community. The site's live, and there's even a gameserver running.

The new official Shell Shock website is now http://shellshock.bzflag.bz
The game server is running under shellshock.bzflag.bz too.

I'm still in the process of adding more content, but there's quite a bit already. First thing on my todo list is to add a page for user's maps.

At the moment I'm also looking for other interesting content, so if you want to contribute...feel free. Just drop me a line.

Have fun.

Excellent work!

Only one thing: Could you also add www.bzflag.de into "Fan sites" because we are more a fansite than a clanpage. Thanks. :)

Well done! I am impressed, and am especially ecited with the "BZ-Times" I like the idea of the news letter. The site look is awesome, and the descriptions and guides for moves are very accurate, and methinks manypeople will appreciate them. Congrats, and Well Done! Image

The site layout looks impressive. I've added it to my bookmarks, and if my personal site gets resurrected anytime soon, I'll link to you - though that doesn't really amount to much.

If I ever write any articles that I don't hate, I'll send them to you. ;)

Got it, tx. Great site by the way, although I can't understand much. My German is really poor.

glad you'r back dutchrai, looking at those maps have brought back some memories.... all good ones of course :D
"Those who say they have never been afraid are either lying, or their life has never amounted to much. Fear is nothing to be ashamed of. Often it makes man a better fighter, it inhances his senses, it gives him caution, and other qualities he will need. So when i am about, be wise....and fear."

For the last few days Shell Shock was down, but the problem has been solved. My apologies for any inconvenience caused :cry:

So once again, happy map downloading and tactics studying.

Your tactics really do work, did you make them up yourself?

hmmm, you should set up a system where people are e-mailed with updates to the site. I could help you if you need it.

Something like that would be a good start. Usually those news-subscribe services also let you choose if you want immediate updates, or collected on a weekly basis, so that should be automated.
Will definitely include BZ news too, like upcomming releases, new websites, tournaments, whatever. Will need BZ-Times editors for that though...can't keep it up all by myself (you still want me to map too right?). Any volunteers? :D
