It would be nice to see a script added to servers that could send the currently playing map to any player that needed it.

tribes2maps.com used to have an autodownload feature.  I'm not sure if it still works; you'd have to ask sfphinx.

and how about turrtes, can they be contoled by a command center like T1? if so how? Ive looked repeatedly through bases and invos for a portie command center, but I never see one. Is it just the "c" button now, with no need to be at a command center?

Yeah, command stas are now just the command circuit, default [C]. Turrets are listed under base assets or deployed assets, click little square to take control. Pretty sure those are the categories; I never take control of turrets.

Frankly taking control of a turret is a bad call 99% of the time and will get you yelled at in most servers.

tell that to the nOObs in GOON. I suppose every game has a server or 2 like that. IMO 64 peeps is WAY to many for a game like this.

In GOON (with 64 ppl playing) it could actually be useful to take controll of the turrets. Would prevent mortarturrets from killing teammates... if you can aim a bit.

Suppose it depends on where that mortar turret (or any barrel) is. If it could do better with an AA barrel and on its own, I think you should go that route, as AA might lead targets better. But if the mortar is in an odd spot and you can suppress well (I'm thinking Riverdance here), manual control could be the best way to go.

It's always dependent on the map.

Controlling turrets in mino can be quite entertaining.

There's some guide to being an Annoying Bastard (there's a link here somewhere) that has a very amusing strategy. Basically you get one guy to get into the enemy gen room with a clamp turret, and as soon as they set it up, you, a long way away and safe, take control of it and destroy the generators. When someone comes down to fix them, you keep control (so it doesn't shoot), and wait for the guy to leave before opening fire on the gens again.

I doubt it would ever be that coordinated on a pub server like Goon Haven, just from the large amount of chaos, but that would be an awesome strategy to see happen.

I've done it, it actually can be surprisingly effective IF you have more patience than buddha and the entire enemy team is deaf to the sound that a clamp turret makes (or you get them so paranoid about cloakers they just always assume one's running around). Personally if you absolutely MUST control a turret go stick an AA barrel on a turret and use your human ability to lead targets intelligently to turn it into a spike turret's big brother.

Retro-tardedness aside doesn't the plasma rifle also ignore shields?

No, plasma does not ignore shields..  The fact that it has a decent rate of fire, and a small splash, means it's great for eating through shields.

Right, must've been from one of the bajillion mods everyone used to run except base.

The blaster ignores shields, however, it's not very powerful.

That just makes it even better when Mr. Immovable Object in the attic forgets they bounce and get's zotted to death by ~8 angry spawners while frantically wondering why his shieldpack isn't helping.
