Make Tremulous Unsad Again: Reinstating Saturday Games

Continuing @dGr8LookinSparky’s tradition of Saturday Dev Games, let’s set up a fixed time so people who want to play Tremulous can get together again.

Currently, servers are mostly empty and there are barely some random games with less than 5 people happening on some weekends. I know that I and others are dropping into servers to check and not finding anyone. Others are just checking server listings like Zittrig and get discouraged by seeing 0 players (or the sad moderator player on the Der Bunker servers).

If you would like to see enough people to play some games, please respond to these polls:

How often should we have games?

  • Every Saturday
  • Every weekend (changing days)
  • Every other weekend
  • Once a month

ACT is a bit of a weird timezone i’ve not seen anyone use until today, had to look it up and google kept giving me the state (australian capital territory) which is a different timezone to australian central time (which is incorrectly calculated at +11 UTC, its actually +9:30 UTC. I live on the west coast so I’m actually +8 UTC and most australians live in east coast so they have some weird funny business with daylight saving but generally speaking its +10 UTC

Yeah I was totally confused about Australia time zones and wasn’t very knowledgeable about south-east asian time zones. I thought ACT was Canberra, which should be Sydney? Ok, so I will not touch this poll, but keep that in mind for the future!
