How did you find Mars explorer
Submitted By Setlef on 09/05/17
Mars Explorer, Setlef, Documents, Other 

Hi i have been playing for a while and i have met some really cool people e.g thedude flyclub kruncher ibcf babaG... the list goes on and on.  But what i want to no is how you found mars explorer and who did you meet along the way that shaped the way you acted and played.  In Other words what is your mares explorer story. 
 
Personally i found it as a widget on my mac.  I must regret saying this but i used to be a flat out noob.  i would taunt and spam and nqs till the cows came home.  then i got my *** handed to me by non other  than thedude and kruncher.  That really got my head going and i have since gotten much better at playing and i feel it is safe to say i will never go back

Well, my story must be similar to many PC-to-Mac converts like myself.
I used to be the proud owner of a PC, and when I finally came to my senses and bought a Mac, I very soon realized that the Mac gaming market here in Denmark is just about non existing.
 
- As a hardcore gamer, this was a major setback for me. I used to play all sorts of games, and all of a sudden all I had to play was board games and card games.
 
Once again, my trusted old friend, Google, came to the rescue. *Google is your friend*
A few minutes searching for free online games, and Mars Explorer was in my system. (And my Mac too :O)
- Although my Mac crashed often, I couldn't stay away, and I soon found friends and seasoned players here, who weren't afraid of helping a newbie like me out by slipping a few secrets about all the cool tricks you can make in this game.
 
For this I thank you all.
(The list is far too extensive to write down here, but you all know who you are.)

I was looking for a good racing game widget for my Mac. I came across Mars explorer downloaded it, and after I played on the widget a few times, (the horror! Lol) I decided to click on the button that led me to the homepage. I lurked a bit, then made an account, and here I am!

Well my bro Abi found the widget and I started playing 1.7 or 8 ( not sure) and I met a bunch of really cool people, I wasn't really a n00b (yet) . Then one day I decided to "join the comunity" and it was really cool and I made an account and stuff then after a while I kinda went wild and kinda turned n00b some how.... But then dude kruncher and baba ( they do this allot to alot of people) got me back in line.
 
Haha i called Avi -abi!!!!!! haha hahah!

I joined this game when i saw it on the apple widgets section.
 
I was a full throttled weapon nut, i loved guns soo much, i nqsed for months. 
 
I decided that nqsing was Stupid, so i stopped. 
 
Finding the marsxplr website, I found out about the "cloner wars" and turned into not a full throttled gun nut, but a full throttled cloner. I cloned many people. (snares, Fc, kruncher, etc.)
 
I quit, because I was done being a noob. I had to go get a life.
 
And so i got my life from the dollar store (lol)
 
and... i'm here now.

Whelp, I had just recently gotten my very own iMac for Christmas and went looking in the apple store for widgets and found a few i liked including this game and started playing it. Most other widgets evaporated as mars stayed behind. Soon i met a few good people and couldn't stop. But then a new version came out which had a terrible buggy that i couldn't stand to fly and my friends had all disapered and so i left. One day months later i was terribly bored and was looking through widgets once again and found an old memory and re-downloaded it. This was 1.7 and i soon found more good people like kruncher and thedude (who joined one version later) fly club, GLAST and so on. This made me stay till today. I've had some great times with great people, far to many to count thats for sure. And i've had some terrible days with many more people who i wont name. But through it all, Im still here so i guess i like it huh? :P

my friend showed it to me when 1.8 was the current version. i started to play it .then i got severly addicted to it (lol i made it sound like a drug). i played 1.9 for some time. i was unaware of 1.9.4 until nightflyer told me. then i couldent stop playing 1.9.4 it was so much better. i am also kinda sad because i left alot of deecent friends in 1.9, but i would rather play here. lol i remember when dash and kruncher used to play 1.9 w/ me. that was waaay back in the ages. then they dissappeared. i thought they quit. LOL now i know where they went...without telling me! o well i found out sooner or later.
 
 
o hey, nice post, i would like to know how kruncher got to know this game

Yeah, nice post. Welp. I saw the Widget on a late night free download spree. I tried Mars Explorer and got so frustrated with the default Chase view spinning me around and trying to fly that I trashed the Widget.......and downloaded it again 5 times. I actually USED the tutorial map and learned about quarry so I was appalled when players NQSed me constantly. Then came the cussing freaks and the cowards that would ambush players when they first joined. I found the mini volcano on my own after deciding to EXPLORE the entire map for secrets and launched by accident from the easy volcano top. fly club was the first to help me by telling me to get out of full screen to text when I couldn't answer him.
Then came MacDane with some casual and friendly general advice and specific instructions on how to launch consistently from the big volcano top. I started in the last white box buggy version. Mac_Dude used to pwn and taunt me and call me a n00b constantly (in a friendly way) which I learned a lot from. I joined a game and began lasering and MacDane said "kruncher you dope! We're RAMMING!". That's when I learned about ramming for quarry and the extra skill and mental focus needed to get quarry. igiz and babaG taught me by example just how far ramming could be taken as far as precision and igiz showed me where the lesser known jump points were in 1.9 and the visual value of Bird view. I observed the better players' moves and one day Dash (who was Jumper back then) patiently taught me the river launch. I used to see a player named "stupid" and he would WHUP ME SO BAD! He was invincible, seriously and he just pwned and pwned and pwned me. I thought "If this guy named stupid is kicking my a**, how will I ever survive?" Welp, stupid turned out to be the infamous player named  fly *LOL!*, one of the game's most consistently pwning super-players. fly taught me the lava flyout and the edge jump and how to break the barrier in Foxholes. I learned from getting my daily pwnings from him and watching him fly to skimming, skim to flying and wall crawling like Spider Man.  Jumper used to fly around upside down and so I did the same to get used to it. I got in a horrendous laser battle with Ram357 that lasted 40 minutes. I refused to give up and so did he. After that GAWD AWFUL battle, I decided I would need the most skill I could muster because I HATED GETTING SHOT. After that, I just played a lot and practiced a lot and enjoyed flying more that I would have expected. I met some of the worst, most unimaginable, horrid examples of humanity ever to sit at a computer. No game, no skill and no interest in either. They just want to annoy. I also met people with such great sense of humor, sportsmanship, skill and helpfulness that would become such good friends as the game went on. You know who you are and THANK YOU friends for playing hard, loling at my bad jokes, forgiving my outbursts and just being who you be.
PS - To those who believe that I think I'm cool or important or anything like that, you simply don't know the real me.

Well, I'm a relative newbie here, but hopefully not a noob!  :P  My friends and I were on apple.com during tech class looking at widgets and one of us found the Mars Explorer app.  It wouldn't work at school, but a kid in my class said that he had played it and that it was cool.  So... I went home and tried it out, and here I am!  I'm the only kid out of the my friends in tech class that play it, but I got my other friend (bozinator) to play, and... yep!  So, there's my story.

Well, my sis was downloading widgets from apple in mid 2008 and downloaded mars explorer 1.5 and then I found the widget on my computer in November and downloaded 1.8 and have been playing ever since. I remember my first time. I had my real name (Ariel) as my user and was taunted by someone calling me 'fishy'. I don't remember who it was but if I do, I'll run them down with my 1.9.7 tank!
 
Ok, maybe not, but I'm not very happy about it and it almost made me delete the widget and forget about Mars Explorer. But all you guys have been really understanding, thanks ;)

Well, that would be me. :O)
Ariel is the name of the little mermaid, and she sure looks a bit fishy to me.
- So please bring your tiny little tank into my game. *s*
 
BTW: I only taunt you because I like you. :O)

I really don't know exactly how I started but I think that one day, long long ago, in a galaxy far far away known as the Internet. I was surfing pages not looking for anything in particular when I first found the game. It was young and rather boring, so I quit almost immediately. (This is only a bit of how much I hated that version, I'm even writing a review on it!) Much later I came back and found the game was awesome, so I stayed and here I am! I learned a lot from the posts on the forum by flyclub,thedude,kruncher, spiffy ,and all the other seasoned players. Thank You and...
Happy Exploring!

I was looking through games on the apple site, I came across the Mars Explorer widget. It looked neat, so I tried it out. It was released just a day earlier, so there were not many people using it yet. My first bud was Mochi, I showed him how to fly. Ninja got me into going fast and showed me "The Rocket." I was swimming around in the 'cano, noticed a flashing triangle, voila, I was hooked. Went on to discover more launch points, including the not-so-well-known "Great Wall," "Looking Glasses," and "Invisible Floor." (All named by me, haha!) I soon became the first person cloned. (That I know of). I became great friends with Mac, Eli, Army Flyer, Meg, Will, GLAST, Olim, Qristian, and many others. Some left after the summer, there was a bit of a slow time at this point in my story. This odd person named "The Dude" kept things interesting with his flirting and was funny to listen to. I met Baba, he thought I was a crying baby because I complained about freezing players and PNR badges. :p Dane was there all along, I recall reading many of his idea threads on the forums. I soon met many a great laser-er, including krunch, they got me interested in intense battles and ramming. Now, here I am...Ta-da! I still am horrible at nabbing quarry...

I started sometime last year back when it was only one map and the launcher was in the side of the hill. I found it while looking at the Apple downloads page. After a while I just stopped playing. I don't really remember why. Then I saw the widget in my tray for dashboard and decided to play again. I eventually checked the site to see if there was a newer version and downloaded it. (I think this is when I made my account I have no recollection of when but this is my best guess). Then I played on and off for a while eventually till now, my longest streak. I started playing this streak in 1.9.5 and followed it up till now

My story is about that same as Kruncher's (although we differ in skill level and version joined).
 
In short, I was going on a game spree on the Apple site when I found the widget, plyed it for three hours straight, and loved it ever since.
