Soldat is 5 years old today!
« on: May 09, 2007, 02:17:09 pm »
Well, assuming the entry in the Soldat manual is correct, the very first public release of Soldat was, and I quote,?  "0.9.4b - first public beta (09.05.2002)".

So yes. Exactly 5 years ago to this day (not considering leap years as that'd just get confusing), Soldat was first released and played by the public. And ever since that magical dawn, the dim light of a single man's hobby and idea for a simple but fun game grew over the years to what we know now....mostly the same but better and with more stuff.

We had planned a huge graphical and audio montage extravaganza, showing the leaps and bounds the game took over the years through its numerous patches and updates, complimented with full commentary from George Lucas... but he backed out at the last second so FliesLikeABrick got drunk and suggested we just take a pic of him lifting his top up while we held cake over his breasts and just make a big sign saying 'happy 5th anniversary'.






So we did that.

Five years old... lol here in a few years itll grow to hate its creator... ahh the teen years are fun.
And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
Ill see you on the dark side of the moon

We should give Michal a pie with 5 candles or something :). And the picture of FliesLikeABrick ofcourse, would be nice to put it above Michal's bed.

Never realized how many years have passed... I was just a kid when I first played it and I was also a kid when I first played it online and stuff(about three years ago)

This just proves that oldschool 2d graphix beats those fancy 3d games.

SOLDAT FTW!!!!!!!!!

YOU SEEM TO HAVE A LITTLE CAKE ON YOU NIPPLES. PLEASE ALLOW ME TO LICK THAT OFF.

Soldat sure has grown. I remember playing when there was like 4 servers, and they all sucked.

Happy birthday, Soldat.  Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a need to say
WTF.
To sum up my point: We had a multipage debate about toilet padding. (Putting TP in the water so you don't get splashed.)
And we still don't know if dead guys can keep a stiffy.

Happy Birthday Soldat.

lol, nicely made pic of FLAB.

I can't wait to see the hilarious pic that'll be used for Soldat's 10th birthday ;)
Careful with that axe, Eugene.
