Just a random guy with a passion for video games and music. If you want to contact me, I'm on Xfire and Steam often enough. If you want a custom header, background or avatar (or all three!) for personal use or for your group(s), let me know ;) Space and words of all sorts will fill this space, never to be seen again. On top of that I am going to update my profile so that you cannot see these words. Instead, a cool looking picture shall go on top with some html links for various sites of mine. I still have five hundred characters to go. Drat. Whilst writing that I lessened the character amount. I now have three hundred and sixty one. Wow, that actually worked. But it doesn't matter, because you will never see this again. Well, maybe if you're lucky you will, but I'm not so sure. Anyway, I'm going to attempt to. I need to max out the text. Horribly annoying at times, let me tell you. Still quite a few characters to go, but only in the double digits. Fortunately that ate a bit up. Single.

Posted by on


So personally, I really didn't enjoy the TFTBF look all that much and I really wanted to make it a bit more multipurpose, but if it was just tales from the battlefield then I couldn't talk about game development, or post game reviews, or anything like that. I felt very limited. Thus game center was born. It's just my little game center where I post things related to gaming, whether development, actual gameplay, or game reviews. Let me know what you think.

As it turn outs, I do have some game related stuff this first time around. Not only am I just a few pieces away from a new rig (woohoo!), but I have also gotten a few games to play. Notably I just recently was given the Arma 2: Combined Operations pack, which allows me to play the DayZ mod (Sab3r, I'm looking at you). So if you guys have that mod (I know some of you do!), let's organize a day to play! I also want to point out that romnus has made a group for DayZ survivors on ModDB, so if you play and want a group to play with, contact him!

Also, a friend from the Platinum Arts Sandbox community and I have been working pretty much everyday for the past week on some great stuff in Sandbox. For now we're just working on maps although we've both been hinting at working more on in the future as a development team. Obviously there are some things that we need to work out first, such as the game design document and what our overarching goals are for this project. I also would love to get into modelling (I've been using Blender 3D recently, so if anyone has any tips/tricks/would love to help this newbie, let me know :D), which would be a big bonus for us. Up until recently we've been working on my map which you've seen me post pictures about. We didn't do a whole lot except for designing the interior and exterior of the city wall (okay, that is a lot, but not when you've got two really good mappers working together). As of now we are on a new map with our combined assets (houses, windows, fences, lights, buildings, rooms, etc), from which we can pull at will. In fact, it allows us to get sections done rather quickly.

The main problem is texturing as we are working with over 1100 textures, all of which are quite gorgeous. On the other hand the variety will insure that our maps are top-notch (drat I should have put a Minecraft pun in there somehow :P).

If you've read this far, thank you, I appreciate it. If you ever want to play a round of Call of Duty 4, DayZ (although I don't think rounds are quite as practical xD), Dungeon Defenders (LOVE THIS GAME!), hit me up on Steam as [JSSG] Arcones or on Xfire as Arcones.

Later gents,
Arcones

It does not seem to work. What's your nickname? Usually it'll be different from your username.

EDIT: Actually, just send me the url to your profile page :P

I'm "trying" to use Blender :P

Few and far between are the times that I actually do use it. I must admit though, if I spent as much time as I do in Blender as I do in Platinum Arts Sandbox, I would be a great modeller :P

Haha, I kinda stoped using it for now since I don't have a mouse, and it takes a middle mouse wheel to move the camera :P
