There's probably a better place to ask this, but what exactly made Tribes 1 so much fun? I played the heck out of it back in the day, and still have a soft spot for it. I just can't quite put my finger on exactly *why* I loved it
Speed (that includes skiing).
Flying.
Acrobatics.
Airdiscs.

Oh and of course: SHAZBOT!

I'll add a few more items:

Server-side modification for most mods

Extensive (and I do mean unbelievably extensive) scripting so you could customize your experience to your preferred play style- Think WOW UI levels of scripting years before WOW.

Viable defensive options

Absurdly large maps with absurdly large player capacity (we went from 4-8 players up to 32, that was huge)

But yes, SHAZBOT! was one of the biggies.
