Abyss 048 is still looking for 3D Artists (character / prop / weapon) 2D Artists (skinning / textures) and 3D Model animators (character / prop / weapon).

Posted by Trempler on Aug 21st, 2013

Abyss 048 is still looking for 3D Artists (character / prop / weapon) 2D Artists (skinning / textures) and 3D Model animators (character / prop / weapon).

Abyss 048 mod will remain free and available for download at no charge.
If you're interested, please send me a private message or post a comment.

So far we've rewritten the story and are finalizing it right now.
Some changes to the mod are now being planned because of changes in the storyline.
We have decided to reduce the horror gameplay in the mod to go for a better story and more action.

Thank you for your support! I am glad to see so many people are showing interest in our Half-Life mod.

Yours sincerely,

Trempler

you could try making a Job page, or a 'Help Wanted' page, or design a website and have that voice your concerns, or speak to developers on sites like this, aware, Gamebanana, Etc - Etc, or use forms to create job applications accessible through temporary domains, or post something in your news paper, or a forum post, that could help! OH, I forgot the best one yet... Post a horribly spelled news article on MODDB, containing little-to-no information, with-out references, links or other acts of post-professionalism.

PS: Don't put spaces before punctuation !

Hello CallumSharp279.

Trempler's not a native english speaker. He's doing big efforts to avoid as much mistakes in his writing as he can.

I'm sure everyone's thanking you for your involvement in his path to a better knowledge of english language.
But your comment being unrelated to the topic of this post, I'll request you to private message him the next time.

This mod is not involving any professional activity. We're a group of friends sharing the same hobby, working together on a common project.
The message our friend wrote above was targeting the community that follows us or/and the possible visitors that will come over to read it.

Have a good day.

I'm not sure what you say back to that. You have no opinions in your message I oppose, so I have nothing to say to that. As for your point to my original comment; so you believe a team of people that act unprofessional and idiotic in their methods may be excused becasue they're just 'Hobbyists'?! No, of-course not, MODDB is FOR Hobbyists, so why do you feel like giving a pardon to all those who act foolish, then retaliate on spectators (That would be me)

Whether this person is English or not, that gives no allowance (In my book) to a horrible, scrap of an article that doesn't even belong here.

I look forward to seeing your response, although, I feel as-if it's just going to be what I said, in opposite.

Ok what's so idiotic about their methods? They've already proven their ability through all the screenshots of maps and such that they've released on their page. They have proven themselves as capable developers. Why are you being such an *******?

Are you really calling the team "unprofessional and idiotic" because their first language isn't English and doesn't conform to your "perfect" English standards? You're ******** on the page for no reason and you're contributing absolutely nothing.

I also love how your standard of "professionalism" includes Gamebanana, etc. etc.
Plenty of other games on ModDB make news posts on their page to ask for help.

You see, you're really not getting the whole 'thing' here. My problem is not with the Language barrier, but rather; the way it is presented (HTML is in all languages, my friend) and the way this is introduced, no-matter what language you speak or where you're from, that doesn't effect your professionalism in-terms of presentation.

Don't call me an idiot because we have different views, idiot.

OK, first off, check your own mod page and your own articles. I'm sure you'll be pleasently surprised as to how many errors you find.

Second, look up the word "hypocrisy"

Third, don't complain about losing karma when you act like a self righteous prick. If you spoke to people the same way in the real world you'd be losing teeth. There is no reason to fly off the handle as much as you do. I simply said to take a look at your own writing skills before ******** on somebody else's and all I get in response is abuse. Real professional.

Finally, posting a news article about available roles on moddb is perfectly acceptable if your mod is popular. You'd know that if yours was. You don't NEED a website of your own to recruit people. Speaking of which, yours is hideous.

If you're serious about game design, you might want to seriously consider the way you communicate with people. You can do all the research you like, post fancy articles about how well you reskinned somebody elses model or whatever, but nobody is going to thank you for acting like a 5 year old with an oversized ego and a list of obscenities. Thanks for playing. Grow up. Have a nice day.

Okay, I think we're done here. Also; I don't know what website you're talking about, but no ML websites are online.

And do not tell us that we 'you don't NEED a website of your own to recruit people' - you'll find that it has no negative, but rather; increases awareness and really is more professional.

What did you do that for? You were writing a perfectly good piece of feedback until you decided to **** all over it with edgy sarcastic remarks. Somebody got out of bed with the wrong foot today :/

I agree, there are better places to post requests like this that would recieve more attention and it could've been made in a more professional manner, but who are you to declare that this has no place here? It's a hobby project, and a large part of moddb consist of just that, people who do this thing for fun or as a hobby.

Anyone can be the resident grammar nazi, but who ordained you lord of the recruitment articles on this site?

Okay, I see you and I are on the same page, but you must understand, I've received about 10 E-mails in the last 5 hours about this stupid little topic we seem to be on, I'm not the Thore of the English language, it's quite easy for me to just say 'Bollocks to this' - and reply short, idiotic, simplistic things.

I think the media we've seen of the mod so far speaks for itself, and says more about the team's abilities than words alone ever could.

Good luck again to everyone involved, really looking forward to playing!

I really can't believe there's still people who had seen marvelous things these guys have made would still insult them for some merely and hardly noticeable English mistakes, atleast this problem is (hopefully) now resolved.

BTW, can't wait for this mod! I wish the best of lucks for the Abyss048 Team, really, good luck guys!
