Tribes 2 Ironsphere RPG 2

I am going to be reviving the clientside mod for Tribes 2, Ironsphere RPG, and am in need of more people to join the team. The big goal is to revive what was, and should have been, a fun client side mod for Tribes 2. Anyone is welcome to join, especially test, because we are working off of what was at best a partially completed mod, therefore any kind of help would be awesome. For example, if you think your poor at something, but you know that you'd be of help, please feel free to say something. Also, lets say that you're a scripter, but you can also make music or artwork, you can play multiple roles, so long as the whole team is informed. All credit that one does for the mod will be appropriately listed.

  • Ohh, I knew there was something going on about you.
    You have my thumbs up

    It's a clientside mod for Tribes 2, called Ironsphere RPG.

    It its a classic style RPG, with swords, shields, bows and arrows & with quests, guilds, and territory wars and then some.

    What do you mean by "technology/script are you leveraging here?"

    Vision is to be a well known mod for Tribes 2, and possibly not only revive the mod, but the T2 community.
  • IplopIplop *witty slogan*
    wow, So this will be a total conversion mod?

    Best of luck!

    I'd be willing to sign on as a tester.
  • shinjishinji shinji144
    Yes, it is a total conversion mod, if you would like to join, contact me at:

    So I can work stuff out.

    Some basic stuff is listed here, at T1's PCRPG's Newcomer's guide, such as Classes, and a Spell List.
    http://www.pcrpg.org/main.php?action=viewpage&page=newcomerguide

    I do have an idea of where to go from here, and am going to be making some sort of (as you would call it) design document, being a rough sketch of what will hopefully accomplished.

    There are plenty of mobs, and a variety of items and drops, for use with what kinds of stats you give your character.

    A part of that rough sketch will be a map drawn in paint of what the current map is, and as work progresses on the mod, what we would like to add as new content. New content of this kind would mean new cities, buildings, and zones, all over.

    One thing that would be very nice to look forward to if I can get enough people together, is have gathering skills besides mining, and a custom city/house building skill, where based off of how many and what kinds of materials you have, you can build walls, windows, tables, beds and such. I may be dreaming on that part, but it is definitely something that would give alot of people to come to Tribes 2.
  • shinjishinji shinji144
    We may not be able to pull off something as lucrative as gathering and construction skills, but will definitely revive the mod, and hopefully, bring more people into the T2 community.

    At the very least, I wan't this to be known as a far better attempt than the DarkRealms RPG situation a year ago.
  • shinjishinji shinji144
    I now have a website with download locations for the new 1.35 client^.^
    NOTE:
    You should delete all previous versions of Ironsphere and Ironsphere II in order for the install to work properly.

    Looks interesting
  • shinjishinji shinji144
    We've already released client 1.35, and are still working strong on the mod.
    I can't give an exact list as to whats different between 1.32 and 1.35 since I neglected to make a patchlist, but the installer filesize difference is:

    1.35 Installer = 94.6mb
    1.30+(1.30to1.31patch)+(1.31to1.32patch) = 92.697mb

    Installer size difference = 1.903mb.

    This may be a small number, but considering the size of the team(which is still growing), and the few days we've been working on this, it is definitely good enough to say that we're (slowly but surely) making progress.

    ACCM is a good mod, props for making it, but I fail to see why you should bring it up. If you care so much to post a let down reply, at least be respectful to the people who appreciate you're work.

    Considering that it looks like you want to give up on the T2 community, and yet want to brag about how you could remake ACCM into it's own RPG makes me wonder why you posted here other than to put us down. On that note, we "tools" have fun working on the mod, and we're having plenty fun without you trying to put us down.

    We will continue to make progress as a team, whether or not we're uber talented like you, and will continue to have fun without you.

    GOOD DAY SIR

    Nukem is so nice these days... letting people down without them knowing...
  • Signal360Signal360 KeyboardCat
    I wouldn't mind joining the team, as a scripter.

    But I do agree (to certain extent) with nukem, maybe serverside-ity, however it is that you manage to achieve it, is a good idea because as I recall the original ironsphere was like 150mb+, and not only it was hard to find a working link but there wasn't really much documentation and it's no wonder when TN surfaced ironsphere just sank like a lead vest.

    Then again, that's just my humble opinion.
  • ZipperdudeZipperdude The Doctor
    Homer and Harry Ploper are working for you!?
  • shinjishinji shinji144
    I managed to find the original Darkrealms installer while away for a week - , heres some info on that:

    Ironsphere_RPG_II_1.35_Installer = 94.6mb
    Uncompressed = 119mb

    DarkrealmsInstall = 97.2mb
    Uncompressed = 114mb

    As of already with our 1.35 installer, I can say that I'm proud that we have 5mb more content than Darkrealms, and will continue to add content :)

    A few things currently in progress.
    - finish the item database+fixing broken items
    - fix npc spawns and item/coin drops
    - retextures of the gamemenus
    - new songs for future zones

    This mod had it's days a while ago, and it was a really interesting mod for it's time.

    Unfortunately it has mostly died out now, not to mention they really scripted it in many ways that could have been bettered.

    My suggestion is to go with what was already mentioned, which is try to convert it to be a server-side mod, that way people aren't fumbling around with 100MB installer packages.

    If you're willing to spend the time and effort, I will give you a fully open source copy of my server-side powers mod project, you could try to build an RPG mode off of what is already provided.

    Heheh.. but you'll have to put "BY PHANTOM" everywhere

    what makes you say that?

    The only place I mentioned myself in that mod is the loadscreen, and I would safely assume it would be changed anyways if he chose to do so.

    Powers was just one of those spin up side projects of mine that I never really devoted a great deal of time for.
  • shinjishinji shinji144
    I'm thinking of staying clientside. There is much more potential and fun to be had if it remains clientside. The only downfall is that in order to make it uber fun, the amount of work that needs to be done is equivalent to typing this reply a thousand or so times, and then going back and editing each one of them to make sure its up to date 5 times. On top of that, my cat plays the huge mental block of going back and picking out said replies that are inaccurate or otherwise worthless.

    I'm going to begin leaving the server up over night, and increasing the uptime on it. This means I'm going to be distributing adminships.If you wish to apply for admin, please fill out the form on the website here:
    http://ironsphererpg2.webs.com/applyforadmin.htm

    All applicants and current members of the team should have xfire, and have me added ; shinji144
    Else email me for help and the like @ [email protected]


    Also, something to look forward to; I am adding more guides and commands over the next few days.

    I would like to welcome Phantom139 as the new Co-Dev project leader.

    As of writing this, he's already made a new loading screen.

    Agreed. Clientside would be best for this mod. Best of luck you guys!:)

    Eh, true, but its worse than the ordinary because the original Ironsphere devs made everything terribly unorginized.
