    Air Buccaneers, anyone?

    This antique UT 2004 mod was mentioned recently in a RPS article, and spurring my interest in another game of it:

    I can't believe it's 2 years ago when the last game of it was played:

    Anyone else interested? I'm not sure if I could handle hosting the game, but I'm on 20Mbps cable internet so willing to give it a try.

    I'm interested. I still have it installed from the last RPS Air Buccs events.

    I was always strongly intrigued by Air Buccaneers, but never had the base game required. Is there anywhere to get ut2k4 for cheap?

    Cheapest normal price I've seen is on sale at GOG for $9.99:

    You could go for the whole Unreal pack from, say, play.com (€9.99: http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/1087...y/Product.html )

    This is what I have. For the longest time, Gamestop was selling that one for 4$ or something ridiculous, IIRC. I probably paid 10$ or so for it. Amazon currently has it for 8-9$.

    I would play a whole lot and could get 3 or 4 of me friends to join. i think it would be best to have a scheduled time for which world wide we all could join and commence to a banjaxin good Thyme.

    I'd be up for it, still have my UT2K4 DVD lurking around. I never got around to trying air buccaneers but I've heard many good things about it and I'm properly curious.
    There is nothing more powerful than a bad idea who's time has come...

    I remember being somewhat sad when this mod came out that I only had UT2k3 and not 2k4.

    Well, what do you know? I do have 2k4 now! I'd love to try it out.

    AirBuccaneers HD in 2012 (?)

    I suppose it's more or less official kick-off now. The work has started, funds are being raised and the LudoCraft team is preparing for a mighty comeback! Many cannons have rusted since the UT2004 MOD version, but ABu was never forgotten. Thanks to all of the dedicated and devoted fans, it's time to remake AirBuccaneers up to current standards.

    Check http://www.ludocraft.com/airbuccaneers for progress updates.

    Ning, so I too was part of some previous Air Buccaneer RPS events, back in 2009 and I believe there was even a call for it in 2010, so what about 2011?

    Of course I am up for it, but there are no servers on the server list naturally, and if I hosted it would be on a laptop with a not great broadband connection (but I'd be willing to give it a go for giggles).

    Are there any servers out there? Is there a way for us to get a server, perhaps once again through PC gamer which is what I recall was kindly done before?

    Oh and I'm aware the last post in this thread was back in August, but I'd rather not make a very similar thread which would probably get similar responses. It would be a shame if this plan to shoot each other out of the sky died from lack of interest, but I have noticed that new posts and threads about Air Buccaneers seem to generate less responses than before (maybe once a year to every two years is enough to satisfy most?).
