Same here. I got my first cell phone last year after making sure they'd caught on. Maybe you and I should form an exclusive organization to be named Luddites Anonymous.

I have a saying “technology just for the sake of it” where the tech exists simply because it can. My current car for example is full of (IMHO) pointless tech such as telling you when to change gears (I know when to change gear), hill start assist (that’s what the hand brake is for) and other stuff.

Has anyone ever considered making a wild west BtB? :cowboy: :indian2:
We have few games in this class, yet it's a fun theme.
I loved the Coyote Creek II level set, it would be amazing :jump3:

I'd like to see a medieval package but not quite like Complex Simplicity because the imagery of CS is very much fairy-tale oriented. I'd like to see a medieval wad that takes after RPG imagery like LOTR, D&D, Dragon Age and such.
Even a Medieval BtB would be gorgeous :jump4:

November 2020 will also mark the 20th release of Chronicles, which will also mark the 20 years of the TRLE community. I have no idea if there's a BtB (or any other project for such occasion) in the works, but while I think themes presented (medieval or wild west) could be fun, I'll also go on a limb and say that Egypt could also benefit from a full BtB treatment. IE new and HQ objects and textures, not simply reusing the original wads as happened with Catacombs and Classic editions. All custom BtB wads and textures have been so wonderful, plus it'd all come full circle in a way. Then again, this might be just me. :wink:

I like this idea. Egypt would be fun!

How would BTB start up again? Does someone need to just take charge and start organising it? :?

That's the case for me too. Despite being one of the younger denizens of this site, social media has not interested me one bit. I prefer to stick to friendlier chat forums such as this one.

My Daughter (that hasn't played in year's) was talking to me the other day about how fun Coyote Creek was and how much she loved it. I think that was the last time she played TR. So yes that would be great!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would love for her to get back into this TR world!!! :D

Honestly, I would like Tibet-based BtB, but I know there is no chance for that to ever happen :(

In theory you can have every BtB topic that ever occured in classic TR.
So I see no reason why Tibet would have "no chance", sooner or later...
The problem is the interest in very competition, getting slowly lost.
Simply, we might run out of editions before we run out of themes.

With the wonderful CaC levels we're now enjoying, I'm not even thinking about BtB.
