I visit here from time to time, but to be honest while this game was in it's prime, I was in my early teens This point, I'm in my mid-20's, married, life happened. However, I do play several other games now. The user name I typically use is "ichebu", so look me up on Steam, or xbox live guys - I would love to hear from some of you.

Jeeze, seeing all this interest as of late makes me wanna pull out my old G3 and dust the dang thing off. Might boot up CW5 and make a map or two for giggles As for a when a server is up, count me in for that. I haven't played this game in a decade! AIM - ichiboo
So... In other words, you're the only one who cares enough against it to actually do anything to get rid of the game, website, tracker, community, etc. Everyone else either likes, loves, or is at worst indifferent to it. Just get with the program and figure out that AmbrosiaSW is not "caring" for Avara; it is simply indifferent enough to remove the web resources.
Avara is pretty much at a 10 year mark, and died t around the 4th. I know this, because I was there. I was there well into the 6 and 7 year marks. However, don't take that as a bash to Avara. Avara got me started in 3D modeling, of which I now do for another SW company (which is why I havn't been on these forums in a long while, been having to moderate the ones I get paid to moderate).
You should be grateful that a company still runs their tracker for their game that does not bring them proffit. This game has, mostlikely at this point, 10-20 people still playing it at most. The game has had a good run. Don't bad mouth AmbrosiaSW just because they didn't fulfill your every wish with the game. Belive me, I wanted a new version as much as anyone "back in the day", but the first didn't make them money, why would the second? If you can't understand this, then you shouldn't complain. If you DO understand this, why are you complaining in the first place?
Sorry... if you've seen my levels, I always go right for the complicated straight off. Yeah, as stated befor for a "pool", make a hologram, and then have a field that forces you upward to feel like you are floating.
As for handing out Clarisworks, sorry, I'm unable to do that. Reasoning is that clarisworks is still under copywrite, and it would be illegal to do so. Sorry...
If there are scripting questions on how to do the above stated, let me know, and I will tell ya how to do it.
If he was looking to do water/lava with forcefileds, I'm assuming he is have the fields move objeects? If that is the case, set up fields with timers attached to them with random times... multiple timers on each field... all diffrent ranges, ,to give a more "random" feel, but it wont be able to do fully random. If that doesn't explain it, give an explination on here that is a bit more indepth on what it is you want, and I can do the same... maybe even post some scripting up.
Last I knew (or think I know) is avaraline on KDX is the one being run by Robin Hood (Urban Wielg (sorry if I misspelled you name dude). The one on hotline (also, for hotline try www.bigredh.com, that used to be their website) was the one being run by others. Didn't really like the one on hotline, so I would suggest staying away from there (assuming what I remember is correct).
Hope this helps.

Mmph. I can't get it to work either.
Perhaps. We shall see.
I have an interesting proposition: How about someone hosts a server 24/7? We could call it a megaserver. Good idea, eh?
<_< not funny
Bet I know why it keeps going down: Ambrosia is using an LCII to host
Juri, if you are watching, any chance of making hosting software to release another tracker? I know it's been gone over before, but I can't remember what all could/couldn't happen.
post #333... only half as evil as #666
Katana, please change your signature, it's not appropriate.
As for the topic: Guys, you need to listen to Taz. I admit, Taz can be very blunt, but he is also very correct. If you can't deal with the moderators that have been placed on this board by Ambrosia Software, then you need to create your own board, instead of trying to vote yourself into a place you will not fit.
You all think Taz hates Avara? Then none of you know him like I do. This guy is awesome and trained newbies (who had respect for other players, unlike some of the posts I've seen on here), and helped them. I remember when he helped teach me, as well as a few of the other Geezers. I'm all for Avara (havn't been playing or making levels as of late because of lack of internet in my home currently (that will change in a month though)), but you have to face the reality that 1) Ambrosia is awesome for hosting service for a game that is this old, and has such a low player base. 2) Taz and I are the active moderators on the board, and you need to respect what is said by us. 3) It's just us... We are what is left of Avara, dont "burn your bridges", because then there will be nothing left of it. By us, I dont mean the moderators, I mean the few players we have out there that search the tracker for games.
Seriously, I don't know why it always gets to this point but it does. If you guys piss off enough people on these boards, who knows what will happen to the tracker. And I don't want it to go down permanently, so please watch yourselvs...
