Random pointless facts about Soldat
« on: September 07, 2006, 11:34:50 am »
Come add your own.  Keep 'em short and sweet.  Feel free to correct anything.





1. Vehicles will never be in Soldat, as according to Michal.  However he did mention that he put a tank/apc in his new game Crimson (his current in-progress creation), but said it was crap and took it out.


2. Soldat was introduced to the world on the 9th of May 2002 as 0.94b, the first public beta. (according to the manual)
 1.0.0b was released somewhere between June and July that year.


3. at 1.0.5b, a person called 'BSG' created and emailed to Michal a song he created called 'Gore'.
 It and 2 other tunes can be played in Soldat, and the guitar tabs can be found in the Soldat Manual.


4. Balance as a whole was changed dramatically by new network code introduced in 1.2.0 at the beginning of 2004.
Before then, everyone everywhere - despite ping - had to predict where to shoot to what is considered today as dramatic distances.


5. M79 jumping was possible in very early versions of the game, but due to a mistake by Michal it was taken out during 1.1.0 to 1.1.5(ish).


6. An estimated average of 30000-40000 unique ip's load Soldat each day.


7. www.monsoonix.com , the advertising company that hosts banners in Soldat - viewable in the welcoming screen (non-registered only) - is ran by Michal's elder brother, Maciek.


8. The most known successful clan in Soldat is Soldat Veterans (sv|), having claimed 73 straight victories up until 1.1.5

11. Soldat means 'fish' in Welsh. Some people claim that it also means 'soldier' in Polish and German, but that’s all just wild speculation..

17.  In 1.1.4, the most feared, used, whined about weapon was in fact, the chainsaw.

21. The animation files are in plain text, and seem to contain a value inbetween the x and y co-ordinates of each joint, that serves no obvious purpose.

23. Soldat 1.3.1 at least starts you at the rank "Major, and a "Major" is really REALLY high up in the ranks ;P

25. Wait long enough in a game, and somebody will whine at some point about something, including (but not limited to) close-range M79 shots, spawn camping, spraying, "hit", the people who say "hit", overpowered weapons, not dying, hacking, lag, teamkilling, AFK people, not having any health kits, lack of scripts, the map, polybugs, throwing the flag, death polys and Majors.

@24 - Not exactly, it was first released on that day, not created. I'm sure it was in development for quite some time before that.
