Tanarus Server Closure

As the final shots are fired, the long and proud 13 year battle waged in Tanarus will come to a close at 12:00pm PT (Noon) on 06/10/10 when SOE shuts down the Tanarus servers.

For many, Tanarus was their first online gaming experience and we hope that the thrills the game provided propelled those players on to more online gaming fun in Tanarus and other Sony Online Entertainment games.

We greatly appreciate all of the Tanarus players who have shared their online tank battles with us over the years and we hope to see you online in our other thrilling games available on Station.com.

Considering the donations to the IGBL site within the past 2 years, somehow I doubt the devotion of the community to support such an undertaking. Expecting PT to cover things just because he has offered to do so is a bad judgment call.

Not to mention SOE will not sell the Infantry Engine (i.e.: it would be astronomical beyond belief), and they will send cease and desist to illegal servers.

I played it a ton during the HG -> Sony switch, and enjoyed it immensely... once inf went up though I didn't really play it anymore.

Force Wars was extremely fun... hell, I'd love to see someone create a game like Force Wars with some existing engine (like unreal or something). It was amazingly fun.

Lol realm, you must have not been following whats been going on at freeinfantry.com. The dude who brought Free Infantry already coded an engine from scratch that runs on SOE settings and SOE client (He even released the code). And they also created in-game bots, which work flawlessly.

But IMO, its time for infantry to die.

If it's not running the engine, it's a bit more difficult, unless he reverse engineered it.

SOE's extremely slow to take action. It doesn't mean they won't.

I think you guys missed the point though...fucking donate some money to the IGBL site you slacking half-tards.

When the Population tracker shows >10 the population increases to about 20.

Simple.

The simple thing is without this website, GB would have already died long ago.

What he meant and what he asked are not necessarily equivalent. Again that's got nothing to do with offering up a few bucks to help support the main support pillar meeting ground of all of us (including players past). This site will still be somewhat relevant after GB's no longer active.

Hello, I am a fellow Tanarus player. I know most of you guys here are Infantry, but I have some interesting news:

Although Tanarus went under on June 11th 2010, most of the remaining playerbase (168 and counting) have all joined up on the battleop forums to stay in touch and whatnot. On these same forums, we have 3 projects currently underway:

Treads - A game being made that will be a variant of (but very close to) Tanarus (Treads footage here) It has many videos, alot of which are us experimenting on new ideas. The game is nearing a beta stage. I help to build the 3d models for this game. This game is being programmed entirely in C++.

60tons - A game being made by kcpdad, which is identical to Tanarus in terms of modules and the whole game-scheme, but with makeshift models and a different feel. It is near completed, just having network issues. The games engine will be Torque.

Tanarus 2.0 - Perhaps the most ambitious of all, a game being made by GnR (and myself) that will have 2 game modes: Classic Tanarus (an exact clone of Tanarus. Same sounds, textures, HUDs, everything) and New-Age Tanarus (A sequel, with identical gameplay and physics, just totally redesigned models and fx) If you wish to see progress on the clone, you can go here: Tanarus 2.0 footage (as you can see, we are flying with progress) and for any development on the concept 3d modeling I'm doing for each game, you can go here: 3D Model development This games engine is GameStudio.

All I ask is that you guys check out the --> BattleOp forums <-- and the games in progress. These games are not a fantasy, they are very real, and most of them near completion. As for the Tanarus clone, we have already received a donation total of $900 and purchased the license for unlimited multiplayer, and we expect to have a closed beta in a month to 3 months. If any of you are interested, our target playerbase for the closed beta will mainly be the forums.

I'm not here to advertise or spam. I'm just here to recruit any Tanarus refugees that might be scattered around the internet to rebuild our game and playerbase to the strength it was back in the good old days. With these games up and running, they will have FULL code support and constant updates and patches, and whats more, the playerbase determines everything. Full democracy. We go to the players for their opinion on anything and everything so they can help us build these games the way they should be.

On a side note, if anyone is interested in contributing, we could use the help. So far the dev teams are 2-3 people at best (myself being a headcount in 2 of the games) so you can see how our resourcefulness is spread out. We can also accept donations, but we're not here to empty any pockets. If you wanna play some Tanarus or any of the kickass games in development, go join the battleop forums!

One more thing:

Treads and 60tons both have downloadable versions to play around in. Both games are pretty much inactive at the moment (60tons due to network issues with more than 3 players signed in at the same time - and Treads is still in alpha stages so its not 'playable' yet) but if you are interested, there is download instructions on the forums. Tanarus 2.0 will have its beta out shortly.

It would be really amusing for the few of you who know wtf you're doing behind a keyboard/mouse to actually create an isometric viewed 3d shooter... You know like the one you all still play... totally plausible to make a clone... can't sue for making a game in the same genre.

TANARUS UPDATE:

I recently finished re-designing all 5 tanks for the Tanarus sequel. I know there are some Tanarus players here. If interested . If not, try not to troll me too hard for such an irrelevant post in a forum for an entirely separate game. I'm merely trying to target the entire Tanarus playerbase here.

Does Freeware cover online game clients like this? Like now thats its been around so long, once they no longer need it, doesnt it become freeware? Im pretty ignorant to internet law :P But regardless if Sony has no use for it Im sure they would let it go for somewhat a cheap price. Better than nothing right? And even tho we haven't donated here (Im sorry IVe been a junky too long I woulda payed long time ago, one day I will I swear!!!)

plus my dads loaded, I might take over his business and love inf so who knows down the road ;)

SpioMabio, not sure if you are talking about Infantry or Tanarus, but we have tried that with Tanarus for years. One of our guys even hit it big at a casino and offered 20k. No sale. As for them 'letting the game go', I think you can pretty much consider that one a far shot in hell. The tyrant SOE likes to hold onto whatever they have, even if they aren't using it. Also, if I'm not mistaken, the copyright laws in place over the station games last 99 years. Lucky for us we still have a few people left knowing what we are doing. Actually only half of my motivation to rebuild the game comes from the need to play it. The other half comes from the smile I'll get shoving the game in SOE's face, showing them a dev team of 3 average Joes can do what they claim they can't, and furthermore make it successful, showing them how stupid they are for throwing such a great game down the shitter.

Ha. As far as I'm concerned you can go f--- yourself.

It's hardly a knockoff. We have already greatly improved on the game itself. If anything, it will be much better in the longrun. Oh and we actually have upwards of 200 people ready to go for the beta. Thats 200 vs 1 troll on a forum looking for attention.

You wanna play? Great, come join us. If not, try not to get your panties in a knot, Sally.

No but seriously, small update. We have recently refined physics and are about to release a beta. If anyone is interested (and not a total chode) feel free to stop by the forums to get in on it. I'll probably post a link here when its out. Should be about 2 weeks.

For many, Tanarus was their first online gaming experience and we hope that the thrills the game provided propelled those players on to more online gaming fun in Tanarus and other Sony Online Entertainment games.

We greatly appreciate all of the Tanarus players who have shared their online tank battles with us over the years and we hope to see you online in our other thrilling games available on Station.com.
