Official AirBuccaneers 1.6 Mod Server - Official Thread
Okay, so the server is currently up and running and we intent to keep it up 24/7 for at least the time being.
The server can be found in the Unreal Tournament 2004 server browser under the name LudoCraft's AirBuccaneers 1.6 Server (You need to have game mode set as AirBuccaneers to see the server).
Or you can connect directly via IP: 188.8.131.52:7777
You'll need Unreal Tournament 2004 patched to the version 3355 or later and AirBuccaneers 1.6 mod installed to play.
This same info and download links to the mod's install files and links to places where you can buy Unreal Tournament 2004 if you don't own it yet can be found in here: http://www.airbuccaneers.com/original-mod/
There's also a pretty good quick guide to the game at RockPaperShotgun forums: http://rockpapershotgun.com/rpsforum/topic.php?id=2872
I hope that there's enough people to get proper matches going and you can of course help by asking (forcing) your friends to play. We'll also try and see if we here at LudoCraft can join in to the game as a full sized team some time.

Reason: Fixed link and added one
Olli, would it be possible to add some sort of message to the server (when entering a game) to let everyone know which days/times there will be some sort of organized battle.
Instead of waiting on the server for players to turn up, it might be nice to have a message like there is a "organized battle" every Friday and Sunday evening at/around 19.00 GMT.
Last night, seven people turned up, so it would be nice to 'concentrate' the people interested in playing ABU on those times.
Sorry it took some time, but I've now added "organized games every Friday and Sunday around 19:00 GMT" into the server's MOTD.
I'm new to Air Buccaneers. I saw the teaser for the HD game in development and it really pulled me in. So if someone knowledgeable in the game would point me in the right direction... here's some questions I have: Does anyone still play the original? Where can I find the mod? If no one else is playing, can I play alone? What can I do to get my fix (besides wait)?
