Legions: Overdrive is a "spiritual successor" to Tribes, borrowing gameplay elements from the series such as skiing and jetpacks. It's completely free and supports modding, user-hosted servers and more. It originally started out as Fallen Empire: Legions on InstantAction, but has since been renamed to Legions: Overdrive and is available to play for free at legionsoverdrive.com.

Map Voting

Starting a vote

Map votes can be started by either players or admins. Admins can start the vote process from the game panel. Players can start a vote by typing 'letsvote' in chat. When 60% of players have indicated they want to vote by also typing 'letsvote', the nomination phase will begin.

The nomination phase

Once enough players initiate the map vote process, players have 60 seconds to nominate a map. Players type 'nominate mapname mapmode' to nominate a map. If no mode is specified, CTF is assumed. Both the map and mode are validated that they exist, and players will be told if they entered an invalid nomination. After 60 seconds, nominations close and the top5 maps by number of nominations are selected. The voting then phase begins.

The voting phase

The top5 maps are displayed in the game panel. When the voting phase begins there is a 'Vote for next map' option in the game panel (pressing F5 will open the game panel) which will take them to the list. Clicking on a map gives it a vote. When 60 seconds pass, the server will switch to the map/mode with the highest number of votes.

Vetoing a vote

Both player and admin votes can be vetoed by typing 'vetovote' during the nomination phase. If 40% of the players indicate they want to veto, once the nomination phase ends the vote will be cancelled. If a vote is vetoed, neither an admin nor player can begin the vote process again for another five minutes.

Next map

Players can now type 'nextmap' in chat to be told what the next map will be.
Map Loading

Legions\game\server\preferences\config.cs now contains the following line(s) of code:


The order of these is the rotation of maps/modes on the server. Placing maps in and loading them from the main screen or admin panel should work without any additional file editing now. Mappers and developers still have to be careful to only put the correct modes in their .mis files.

This is one of the fastest games you will play. The learning curve is very steep if you have never played a FPS-Z before. The legions forums are a great place to ask questions or find videos if you are feeling discouraged. Peak hours to find full servers are about 6PM - 11PM EST.

Thanks to modDB for featuring us sometimes ! You guys are awesome.
