I don't plan on playing Universe really, but the idea of Ascend is hot.

Maybe they'll mate and produce the next generation of Castigers? Only time will tell.


THAT is a scary fookin thought.

I thought I'd mention that a certain someone will be starting employment at a certain studio on a recently announced project that may be relevant to the title of this thread. This person is under NDA, as all employees of game development studios are, of course, and can't disclose any information. Said person may have been known, once upon a time, as Sion Delta, and hosted a slightly customized version of Construction mod. Suffice to say, there are true fans of the series involved and dedicated in some very direct manners.

Hypothetically speaking, one might hope this person formerly known as Sion Delta will be a big supporter of having mod tools ready out the gate, and might suggest having plenty of extra shapes and decorative art included with the game.


Also,

Well, I'll say that, again, as any employee of a game development studio under an NDA, one must be very careful with what they disclose, promise, say, state, suggest, etc. etc. etc...

As it is, I only *think* I'm safe saying that I am working on a specific project. Even that might be pushing it. Even if I were to say something like "The direction of the project is in line with Tribes 1 and 2." (most may consider that a positive statement), that's not for me to decide and I do not represent the entirety of the studio or the team working on the project. I am a new employee, not a veteran or senior resident. I'm still in the process of relocating so I can start April 1st, 2011.

I was around way back in the day, involved in T2CC (Tribes 2 Coding Community) and a very active Construction mod host for quite some time before Planetside stole me away.

All I think I can really say is that I'm ridiculously psyched and excited for the project and I will do everything within my power to make it the most amazing, awesome, epic title in the universe, as I would for anything that I have the honor of putting my name in the credits of. Working on this project is coming full circle from being 12 - 14 playing with Tribes 2 script to being a fully fledged, professional game developer on Tribes Ascend/Tribes Universe.

If you get fired for violation of your NDA, you can blame me.

No reason to get fired if you're only being that general.

But since you're "involved" in the matter, can you throw in some suggestions for "mod-friendliness"?

Toss in Zombie AI, and an NDA might appear under your desk. With lube.

Utter chaos is what truly shows who's fit to survive.

dont mean to be a downer, but how do we know this isnt some hoax in an attempt to troll us, reason being that very few outside of t2 even remotely know of these forums if at all.

April 1st?

I hope this isn't an April fools day joke.

Sion is part of the construction crew from the old days, not some random nugget looking to troll you. Besides which, he did say he couldn't tell you anything about the game anyway, so if it were an April fool's joke it'd be a bit of a dud; "Haha, got you guys! I'm not actually working for them at all! Suckers!"
