A few weeks ago, I picked The Gates of Covenant for the week's pick. However, there is one area of that site that you might have overlooked. That is the Top Ten lists. Some of the funniest stuff I've ever read for Myth. Go check 'em out!
(Thanks to PPE for pointing this out!)

MariusNet has been pulling out all the stops recently. Do I smell a "server war" here? Here's the scoop on the new messaging system from Marius:
Just installed a new server this morning implementing a new messaging system. You can now send people email-like messages when they're offline, or in a game, or even in another room (as if that ever happens). When you login, or return from a game, you'll be notified that you have new messages. And of course, there are also the gratuitous blocking functions if somebody is spamming you or otherwise being annoying.
We ran out of room in .help to list all the commands, so use ".help 2" to see them. If things are unclear post on the forum and we can provide some more detailed examples.

Hi everyone, I thought it was time for an update ..Dave is doing so well. He is looking forward to going back to school in the fall, He is walking with out a cane!! What a miracle kid!! We are so proud of him, he has worked so hard to come back to us, I can't tell you all how good it is to see him on the computer again. I know that all the support he has recieved from all of you has been such a huge part of his recovery. Dave, I know you will be reading this....I love you so much and thank God every day that you are going to be well. My love to everyone Pam
This week I bring you another collection of sites, though not quite the list as last time.
There are four sites that I thought I would mention this time around. All of them have some good resources and information on Myth (as well as some humor); and all four are part of our past. So go, check out a piece of Myth History!

MariusNet just keeps on chugging along. Here's the news from Conner:
Well, if you happen to log into mariusnet on SB, you will now notice a few things. First is the ranked rooms are on. No this isn't a late April Fools joke, this is the real deal - almost exactly like the TFL ranked rooms. Head here for more info about it. You can view the leaderboard online at MythForums (thanks PPE!!!). Works more or less like the TFL Ranking, enjoy.
'Nuff said. Go to PlayMyth.

This was posted by Blades Olivia over at MythMaps:
If you need a Macintosh version of Vengence to make maps for Myth 3 and have the know-how and skill to do so - then we NEED to hear from you. We've found a way to get Vengence developed for Macintosh that will get it work at least as well as the PC version - meaning you can create and edit maps to create your own worlds. We need to get a list of at least 50 people working off Macintosh computers who have the software and talent required to do make a map for Myth three.
Please send an email to: email@example.com with the following information:
1. Your name (online name is good enough).
2. The kind of Mac you have.
3. Your email address.
4. A list of any Myth TFL or Myth 2 maps that you have made
5. State that you want to make a map or maps for myth 3 but cannot because you lack a tool.
I know it sounds funny, but I need the information in this list. Please get this to us as soon as possible so we can do the rest! This may be our last best chance to get an M3 tool developed for Macintosh users in the community.

The Renaissance mapmaking group is boasting a fresh new look and new features to their site. Go check 'em out!
Why can't people just follow the rules? Here's the skinny from PlayMyth:
The issue of people ghosting on the game server, getting banned, making a new account and doing it again has prompted us to shut down the User Creation area for the short term. Please be patient as we're addressing the issues to continue providing this service to you.
Note if you're tempted to try ghosting, your account will be locked upon discovery. No questions, no chance of reinstatement. Thou shalt not cause instability on PlayMyth.net.
Note: Normal usage of the server, afk time etc, doesn't show the same way. Put it this way: if you're using the server the way you're intended to, then you have nothing to fear.
Marius posted this over at MariusNet:
Had some extra time yesterday, as well as some motivation, and viola, anybody still playing on SB can now use the built in buddy list. It may not be 100% bug free since I didn't test it alot, but it seems to work fairly well. The buddy list dot commands continue to work as well and your existing buddy list built with those commands is the same list that will show up in the buddy window. Enjoy.
Oh, and for those who would accuse us of trying to compete with PlayMyth.net, well, my todo list is alot older than they are :)

Holy Smokes! I almost would have never thought it possible. Here I thought that the promise of the store re-opening was like the old promise of bringing back the Bungie.Net TFL server. But they did it, they actually did it. Head on over to The Bungie Store and check out all the goodies!
Wednesday May 1th
Updated 5/6/02 with 3 new sites!
For the Pick this week, I bring you a gaggle of order and mapmaking sites. Through some exhaustive research I have compiled this list, however, I know that it is probably far from complete. If you know of any sites that you do not see here, please let me know, and I will include them in an update soon. Some of these sites are still active, while many are now just left as visions of the past. Enjoy!
