Why aren't you playing Midair?
« on: December 11, 2017, 04:47:23 PM »

It's without a doubt the closest remake to our T1 experience.


LCTF (LT) is pretty damn fun and feels very familiar to Ren LT (minus the boosts, but ring jumps and the games physics make up for it nicely).


It's still in closed beta and struggling with player counts, but it's for stupid reasons which I'm sure will work themselves out by full release.


Love to see some more face from the Renegades community representing. So far, I've only seen Recon, Snooks, Boots, Luigi and an old school player phr0st, which just isn't enough!


I still have a spare game key if anyone is interested. Otherwise its only like $20 or $30 to get access now. PM me here or email me at mauiwowi@gmail.com if you wanna play.


P.S. I tried to play T1 about a month or two ago and after playing Midair for the past year+, I just couldn't do it. The best way I can describe it is Tribes 1 feels like playing on Atari, whereas Midair feels like playing on PS4. I will always love T1, it's the GOAT imo, but it's 20 years old and feels exactly that... old. RIP.

I'm a little hesitant to buy it if it dies out within a couple months...30 bucks is pretty steep for early access (most early access games i bought on steam usually resulted in the Devs abandoning the game). I want to give it a shot though, so I'll probably buy it within a couple weeks and try it out. Didn't know snooks and rec were playing...I'd get on yall for some games!

Thanks for the response Sun!

Since you're the only one to even reply to this thread, would you like my extra game key?

Maybe if you were to play and (hopefully) enjoy it, you might be able to help lure more of the Ren community over to Midair.

Yeah alk that would be awesome, thanks man! If people are still playing T1 I don't see a reason not to at least try it...seems like Pac, Moons and a few others still play pretty often. It doesn't look that graphically intensive either (still looks nice though), so the PC specs probably won't be a big deal. Relik you might be able to get away with playing it on a lappy...dunno how that would be on a macbook though. Hmm

P.S. is it better than Ascend? I had fun in that game but it felt a little sluggish

Hey Relik! I'm not sure what your specs are but I know a lot of people are playing Midair on some old or lackluster systems. There have been a couple threads on the subject with settings configs/tweaks to help folks in similar situations. Let me know if you are able to play!

Sun, I'm a little bias because I thought T:A was dogshit and by FAR the worst attempt at a Tribes game... lol, so yeah, Midair is wayyy better. It feels more like T1 than any other attempt, especially the LCTF game mode. I'm at work right now, but when I get home I'll add you on Steam and send that key.

Love to see you both on the battlefield :)

I doubt i can play it through my virtual machine but I will give it a try just to see what it's all about.  Maybe it will get me motivated to purchase a new pc.

Seems like it's on sale for $20 on steam at the moment so I just grabbed it to give it a try.

Alk is right that it sure feels a lot like t1. I haven't been able to play much, since there's only ever been 10 people online any time I checked and they were part of a PUG with a password.

Awesome game...only problem is what Del stated. Only saw 1 server with 10 people in it (says it's a PUG) and it was locked. Nobody else in the public servers...

Welll even T1 had a lot of players when it started, and many years after. You either played Tribes, Counterstrike, or Starcraft...they were all revolutionary games. This game looks awesome but only has ten people playing in 1 locked server. So I'm not sure how we can play?
