The first mod in the UltraXL lineage is the StarSiege/Tribes modification, Insomniax. This mod was the spawning point for most of ideas found in this mod. Next came Renegades, which took the ideas from Insominax, and developed a deeper class based modification from it. Next in line is Ultra Renegades (UR) for Tribes 1. What this "modder" (Thrash) did was take Renegades and sped things up, strengthened and increased fire rate of weapons, give unlimited energy for jetpack-ing, etc. Thrash along with other individual modders, went on to put out many different variations of this mod. UR grew in the Tribes 1 community to where many clans formed and OGLhosted UR ladders were initiated.
And now for UltraXL. I first created UltraXL for Starsiege/Tribes using the Ultra-renegades3 mod as a base. I added many unique rules and weapons that added to the action, plus made game play less aggravating. These features will be moved forward to the UltraXL mod for Tribes 2 with time. Fun gameplay is the number one goal of UltraXL.
Now you may be wondering what the XL in UltraXL stands for. No, it is not the logical answer of "Ultra Extra Large". Way back when, in the early formative time of my Ultra mod, I belonged to the on-line gaming clan, Tenth Legion with the tag of =XL=. Well that clan is no longer, the members have moved on to either EverQuest or CounterStrike. I didn't do either of those games and stuck with Tribes. The guy who founded Tenth Legion (Centurian) has started putting pages up again at the old Tenth Legion web site.
Features: Infinate Jetpacks Faster Spinfusor Faster SniperRifle With more features to come in the future.
