VOGON -- since 2003, 2004 or 2005? We will see!

Postby dyn » Wed Sep 10, 2014 06:16 UTC

I will do this in a few days, but generally i think it was like this:
Q3/VOGON is online for ~10 years (not sure yet!)
- 2003 - using different mods
- 2004 - server was running with my mod (a very simple one), but without VOGON name (here we need to see when did we start using it)
- 2005 - definitely 100%, VOGON servers were up and running, with some basic website, forum was added later (initially i didn't want any web community, as you can probably tell from time to time)

COD4 is online for 5 years (100% sure)
- 2009 June first server started
.. in short time we reached #1 among 13500+ other servers, using only 44 slots (COD4 is buggy with anything over 49-50 slots)
.. there are old threads about this here, but images may be missing because Imageshack fucked up, images i have in archives, will look for those as well

Awesome dyn. Brings back some good memories for me. There will never be anything like your
Excessive Quake3 server's. The Cod 4 server's come close, but will never be the same. Koodo's.
Here's hoping for another 10+ years!!!

Yeah regarding the old servers from prior to 2006... I recall seeing the Ms Gauntlet bot prior to being regular in Vogon servers. Was that bot used back then or did that bot name come from somewhere else?

Yes, Ms. Gauntlet bot is on our servers since 2004, before VOGON name, and then some other server had 'Mr. Gauntlet' bot (Tank Jr. model, blue skin). This later was even added to our mod as an easter egg of sort, if you want to play as 'Ms. Gauntlet' the mod will rename you to 'Mr. Gauntlet', complete with skin/player model from that bot. :)
