I so wish they would remake that game on a kick ass new engine. Was by far one of the most fun MP games I have ever played :)

I read somewhere that you can now legally download the game for free somewhere. Are there still active online games?

You can download Starseige Tribes free from Sierra:
http://www.sierra.com/downloadfile.do?mediaid=11590

At one point you could also get Tribes 2 free (the sequel, which is probably my favourite multiplayer game ever).
It was at Fileplanet but I don't think it's available to download anymore.

Tribes is the originator, Halo is such a rip-off.
I loved the game and had built a K6-2 400 / Voodoo 3 system to run it. :)
Ah memories.

I can't fully agree with the OP as there are only about 7 things he pointed out that are valid for an unmodded game. Everything else came along in mods like Renegades and such. I always preferred the base Tribes gameplay myself.

I would say the game that took its place for me has been UT2k4 onslaught. I still dont play UT as much as I did Tribes either.

heres the link to get the 1.8-1.11 patch which works best i think

and yes this game is great because of modding but let me point out that these mods has these features wayyy before any other game did

Tribes 1 is the game which brought all the other games to where they are today... all CTF start at Tribes 1, i mean "for big".
ahh i still play the game on daily bases and enjoy every moment of it.
all the new stuff people invent, in game, after 8 long years it's just amazing....

*Sigh* off to play...

I remember Tribes well. I had 2 buddies talk me into getting Tribes, and then they taught me how to play it online in mp. We were on voice com so I got into it pretty fast. Still one of THE best mp experiences I ever had. Some other oldies but goodies were Delta Force 2, Rainbow 6, Heavy Gear 2 demo, Combat Flight sim I, just to name a few.

I still think there was something about the older games that devs these days can`t replicate.

This game was so damned good.... It nearly ruined my life! No seriously.

I would get up at 5 am to play it before college then once home play it until midnight. Used to play it around 80 hours a week.... for 4-5 years!!

Always the renegade mod. Luckily 2 reasons stopped me playing it....
#1 By the 4th year so many hax were out it was hard to trust anyone anymore
#2 I wanted my life back!!

Final solution>>>> I snapped the CD in half and done a format :'(

I still won't reinstall it to this day... It's my digital crack!
