Yup. I miss that game. Ahhh... nostalgia...

I loved the base game, but there were some pretty incredible mods. I actually knew the guy who made the RPG mod (JeremyIrons? IIRC) before it became popular. It was pretty awesome seeing it slowly build up from a small map with tons of NPCs using base game assets to eventually a largish world.

Oh, and the first time I went to "the edge" I was really amazed. When I first heard about it, I thought it was some urban legend or something. Took awhile to get there the first time, but many mods' vehicles were ridiculously fast and made the journey take no time at all.


Yeah, JeremyIrons. What do you mean? The edge of the map? IIRC there were holes in the terrain in a few maps, which looped around every time at the same spot. Server admins would cover them up with giant rocks and stuff. Or people would steal each others' packs and throw them into the abyss. Lol.

Yeah, the edge where the world stopped repeating. And one (or maybe two) of the edges made you lose gravity, which was rather interesting.

If you are one of the 2% that doesn't, copy and paste this into your sig.

Yeah I used to play. I loved the huge 128 player servers.

I'm looking into hosting a football server, but I don't know if anyone will play.
