Default In search of Construction Mod friends of the past!

Hello all, Tessio here. Don't go by this alias much anymore but I used to.

Hoping to get in touch with some old friends from T2. Any sign of Construct, mostlikely, charliebucket, Sabbok, etc. these days?

Nothing serious, just hoping to catch up. I wish irc.dynamic.net were still alive. Regards to all of you for keeping this community alive.

A few people from the old days do occasionally pop their heads out (though it has been a bit slow lately), but there are a lot of people who I haven't seen at all since around the time IRC went down... I'm sure quite a few have Steam accounts these days, but they're not always easy to find.

Construct comes around the forums every few months, played minecraft with some of the guys here for a bit, and is usually on Steam. Mostlikely used to check the forums once in a while as well, but I don't think he has been around lately.

Cool, do you guys have an MC server? I play it on occasion and am an op on a reddit survival server. Great to hear from you Krash!

Most of the community set up a Minecraft server partnered with GoonHaven. You can find most of us there.

Yep, goonhaven.org is where you'll find the MC server these days if you feel like plopping in. Iplop hosted us a little server prior to it being partnered up.
Haven't played in ages myself, but I'm always on the IRC channel connected to the server.
If I do hop on, my MC account is sharkitgood, and Shane (who you might also remember) is Sharkitbad.

Of the MC server regulars I can think of at the moment, you might remember CMDRBOB from back in the day. He used to make a bunch of construction maps and ran one of the big construction tribes way back in 2002.
Thalagyrt (who runs the server) was also around in the T2 community at the time, so you might've run into him at some point as well.

CMDRBOB rings a bell. Sorry Alviss but a bunch of old names have faded from memory. But hey, cheers to the good old days!

I wonder if anyone's got an archive of photos from back then. If only I could dig up my screenshot thread

Did some digging and found our old site in the Wayback Machine: http://web.archive.org/web/20050312...ruct/frames.htm

Memories!

It's too bad it didn't save more of the files, as I remember trying to find a few of the screenshots on that version of the site years ago with not much luck. I think I found an archive of the thread at one point as well, but it was missing the images as well.

If I'd had a bit more foresight, I would've been saving these things left and right myself.

For anyone who is curious, there are some shots from an older gallery here.

Ah, it's funny how greatly all those screen shots predate my time in Construction, or my time in Tribes 2 all together.

Hows it going Tessio. I was a part of the community back in those days but sadly was a teenager, so if there are any memories of me they probably arn't good ones... :P

I think we've all been waiting intently for the flatter remake of flatland for 2012.
