Has HR mentioned that they were working on DX? Or is it just amusingly coincidental that you've been working on a DX clone while they have?


They've been working on DX and the information has been out for a couple of weeks now (at least to the point where it's certain that it'll happen), or something like that. The patch that puts DX out as a "beta stage" map on custom servers is supposed to be released tomorrow. Along with a few new maps, game modes, and a billion changes that will once again break the game.

First time I read about it was when I already had the terrain done in UDK. It's more of a practice lesson for me anyway since T:A obviously won't have mod support and you can't use it for something else because they own the Tribes franchise. However, in my opinion it's still quite interesting because you're somewhat familiar with the map and feel so it should be easier to form an opinion about things.

@T:A DX,
tbh I'm not too impressed by the first glimpse on it. At least the base looks quite simple and I really thought they'd add a lot more nicely detailled custom meshes.

I think that'll come when it goes out of beta. They're probably not spending too much time on it before it's play-tested I guess.

We will see what the most likely outcome is when stonehenge gets released tomorrow. If they've improved it since its beta, DX will also likely be better than it is currently. If not, then DX will also likely not be.

Tried some stuff with shaders yesterday evening.
Looks quite cool in my opinion, even though it's just a texture with some effects.

As cool as that is, the first thought that crossed my mind is that TF2 and Tribes have come together on DX(goes off and storyboards the idea).
