Alternate B is 6 months old
« on: June 24, 2004, 05:46:51 pm »
Started December 23, 2003 as a gift from Eudoxia to Garreth. It still amazes me every time I think about that. Happy Anniversary, Eudoxia.

Way to go Garreth and Dox ;D.

To think I had a hard time convincing you to even buy the game those many months ago ;D.  Good job on the server you two :thumbsup:

We aren't using a mod, unless you consider the new maps I've made, lol.

Seriously, we are running a straight up stock server upgraded to the 531 build. No LOS (at this time) even. No extra ships. Just old-fashioned, right out of the box (plus patches) game. I make the maps the same size as the really long gone Activision Server A (lots of room to play that way).

Keeping it simple cause I can't handle anything complicated. Just ask Gman  ;D

I've been hanging out at Alternate B as well.

Nice mix of new people and old vets. Back to basics feel. Tons of PvP.

If you want to go retro and play on a server the way the original Activision B should have been...this is the place.

You guys have done a great job with this server.  Keep it up!  Its really needed for the people that cant download all these huge mods, and will encourage more players to play this thing out of the box.  :thumbsup:

The one and the same, Korus. I'll let her know you said hello.

Thank you, Fluf. We plan on going as long as there are players that want to play.

If you want to go retro...
Retro...? Retro...? Looks like I may have to send Q back to your Romulan Senate, lol.

Strange, I can't see the "Alternate B" server anymore... Crashed? Updating? Please bring it back up! I like the normal game without mods :D. (Most ship-mods are this ugly)

If you can't start the server, could you explain me?

xsysstar,

My guess is it crashed. I've been at work all day, but the 7AM reboot should have brought it back on line.

Have fun..and remember, it's only a game (but what a game!) :)

 I just started visiting the Dyna and i noticed your game. Is ever body welcome? Or do you have to be a member of a fleet?
 I don't like being rude and just come barging in. :) So i have just been staying away.

Ravok,

I think Garreth is traveling this week so I'll answer your question.  Anyone is welcome on Eudoxia and Garreths server (Alternate B).  You do not have to be a member of a fleet.  Stop in, but remember their most important server rule:

Have Fun ;D.

p.s. check out their website at his link above for more information.

It worked again, indeed. I waited a couple of hours and then it was back in the list. Thanks!

Is that "drink" of the gallon size?  Congrats to the Roms on their first win on the server also.
