Remember when we only had three worlds and two vehicles to choose from?

Those were the days.

Remember back when we waited patiently for all those worlds to load?

Those were the days.

Remember when we would cringe at the pink-purple buggy we drove?

Those were the days.

Rememember back when we would stare up at the Freestyle volcano thinking "I can climb it," and fall down, only to try again?

Those were the days.

Remember when Unity was a luxury only the rich could afford?

Yeah, those were the days.

I guess i'm trying to say that even though we have 4 vehicles, a color changer, gravity adjusters, a world creator-loading system, and free Unity, we shouldn't take these for granted, because only a few months ago, they were only just a dream.

Thank you
--Galaxy

Very nice Galaxy.
 
We've come a long way as a community and a game in the past couple of months,
The game and community have been through some awful times in the past.
 
Yet, we're all still here for one simple reason,
We love this game.
 
We should not take for granted what we have,
we should not abuse the privilege that this game is free.
 
We should be very thankful towards Aubrey for all he has done.
 
Some of us take for granted the things we have,
I hate to say this but,
Some of us don't truly know what we have until it's gone.

I remember the days when we only had one vehicle and two worlds... Im sure others remember the days long before that. Well, maybe a few months anyway. 
 
I love the game, but some changes are also very disrupting.

Pure poetry.  Truer words have never been spoken (i think thats the correct answer???)
 
No really, thats so true, Mars has turned into a chat box.  Its no fun to actually "play" (dare i say it).  You have to rally together the 6 some odd people who are actually worth playing against to get anything out of the game but drama and bad communication.

I agree completley.  Now when I go on, I will join a full game, most people are AFK, a few people are playing, but are not very good, if Im lucky, there will be one or two worthwhile oponents, and if im unlucky, one or more players having unrelated conversations, and sometimes even annoying spam.

Back when we had to hold the spacebar, there was no chat and it was one player...
Ah...those were the days.... Times like these when you look back at the old times, you start to appreciate all the stuff we have now.

I can only remember the days where there were 3 vehicles to pick from, the turning while flying was a bit messed up, there were only 3 worlds to choose from, and kruncher was the first guy I met on my first server, so I can't really reminese with you guys......  I did visit the portals and go to some of the older ones, so I do know what ur talking about. 
 
btw, the mountain in freestyle right next to the spawn point in the older ones looks way cooler than the one now!

Ah yeah, I remember when fox holes was still sorta new and when we were able to "drive" under the lava from trying to get under the volcano. Lol that was a blast, I'd always get stuck on the floor XD And the hover when it first came out OMAP that was such a big deal! X3 And the wormy tanks! Now THAT was funny! Glitchy but funny! AND SHARKING AND THE VOLCANO LAUNCHING!! TTwTT Where has it all gone? The Alt records? No one is competing for the highest alt record anymore! But the faster flying OMAPPPP *GLOMPS AUBREY* I LOOOVE THE FLYING PHYSICS I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.... 
—two days later—
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Love it~ *crash* XP

Well, people do compete still, but now its down to a science, jsut fly up and have enough patients to get there. It's not random anymore.

I have to say, I can't really remember "those days".  My first real game was I had first come to the mars website and joined a server with Iron(Forge), Applesky, Kruncher, GTR and maybe one or two others.  And they told me how to play.  Without them I probably would have become a total noob.  Or have gone back to earth.  (shudder)

I can't believe I didn't post here before, because I think it is the most amazing post on the website. Although I'm not too old of a player and I don't remember the old days, or even the bad old days people talk about, I can see the real feeling that is in those words that you typed Galaxy, and I can join you in that journey.

Very nice, and I do remember.  By the way, I found my own ways of climbing that volcano, one of which I am not sure still works, (The launcher is fine).  I also remember some of my other favorite glitches, like driving over lava faster than on land, and using the volcano to launch up to about 10,000 alt (which was high then, before these jets and newer worlds and more powerful launchers and custom physics).

Those days were the days that I enjoyed. Those days were the days when an intuitive player could do a multitude of things the majority did not know. However, today, such things cannot exist. We no longer even have the ability to do such things. We cannot even skip over lava on a buggy anymore.
 
Galaxy, you captured the era of this game that made me love it.

No, but we CAN fly backwards in the jet!
