Hi there:)

Im a newbie around this place, got recommended by Cg talk forum:) Im from the Uk;) I'm currently learning the ins and
outs of Lightwave 3d, my passion is to get into the games industry, I hope to be able join a mod team later on in the year
when im good enough at lightwave (<---advanced noob;) reading through lots of forums, iv noticed games comapaniess people use 3d Max
and Maya for games :(, Does this mean sooner or later im gonna have to learn one of the other packages to get into
the games industry:( ? I have tried using 3D Max and Maya learning editions, but I find Lightwave really easy to use.
When working in modding teams, does it matter what 3d package you use??

Many thanks:)

Hey, my name is Matt

Not really a newbie anymore, seeing as im on here usually everyday at one stage or another, uh but i guess this is a chance to formally introduce myself. Im 16, and im from Newcastle, Australia. I'm mainly looking at modding as a past time, not seriously thinking about it as a profession. I plan on being a neurosurgeon just so i can cut people open XD. My skills in modding lie in mapping, and my pathetic excuse for weapon modelling. Yeh that aboput sums me up.

Hi, I'm Metr01973 (real name Simon) and I'm 32 and live in the UK. I'm not a modder at the moment but I am trying to learn to use the source SDK, so you never know you might see a map by me for HL2. Seems to be a really friendly site, I've downloaded mods from here before but never posted on the forums but that's all about to change.LOL Anyway hope to speak to you all in the future.

Hi, I just joined. I'm working on a mod of Half Life 2 with my class. We're creating a futuristic racer and we're getting things together. We're extremely excited that our demo build will be up for download by Febuary 20th at . My role in the devolopement was game designer, modeler. texture artist, and now script editor and game tester.
A little more about me? I'm 21, live in BC, Canada. My favorite band is Nine Inch Nails. I just saw the movie "Equilibrium" just under an hour ago and earlier today I beat Fire Emblem: Path of Radience for the Nintendo GameCube.


22 year old animator working on a Half Life 2 mod called Blackout, a futuristic racing game. Which is playable now.

Name's TheKlink (i think i shoulda capitalised my username when i registered. damn) i'm a little bit new to pc gaming, even newer to mods, but i love the whole ethos behind them; nowhere else in society can people be so generous.

i'd certainly like to contribute at some point, and seeing the diversity in concept and quality in the lists, its certaibly inspiring.

and it loox like i've got a fair bit to learn.
