After a long hiatus, I'm back... Permanently or not, I don't know. I was kinda hoping there'd be more siege_destroyer/asteroids maps around, but apparently there aren't. So the question is, are people still interested in the Asteroids mod? If I set up a server, will anyone play? Is anyone interested in setting up their own asteroids servers? Is anyone willing to make more space vehicle related maps? o.O
I ran an Asteroids server again a few months ago, but it was dead. The problem is balance: the Rebels have an advantage. I even tried to fix that by replacing an A-wing with an X-wing, and a TIE Bomber with a TIE Advanced, and I even changed siege_destroyer2 to a slightly longer timelimit (but still shorter than siege_destroyer) but it was too little too late.
I think people have pretty much forgotten about it. They would rather chat, emote, "RPG", duel, spawn Rancors and Wampas, use grapplehooks, and fly around with jetpacks. And amslap "lamers" for fun.
If you are looking for space combat, SWG "Jump to Lightspeed" looks pretty cool.
