For those times when you cannot play and just want to hypnotically stare at the ships zipping around...

I think Mike was saying he wanted to get his Attract Mode script running again. I thought it had been rendered obsolete by Thom's built-in demo mode (press "E" on the server screen in Artemis 2.0) but I suspect it was discontinued because of the potential for it to be abused.

Actually, I think the demo mode is still there, just not publically accessible.

Attract mode is running again. Anyone who got Artemis 2.3.109 at Armada has a working version. It has the advantage of allowing a new player to sit at any station and play it "for real" for a while in case they want to build some comfort with no one else watching.

Does it still just circle around while enemies are incoming? Are does it try to apply some simple combat logic?

If not, I was thinking of trying that. Not enough to actually beat anything, but enough to give a little variety to the "demo", and allow a test player to branch out a little from the circle.

Very nifty.  They're on a respawn if gone.  Not precisely a "set it going with a password-on-wake", but fine shooting practice!
