An aspiring game developer starting life as a humble modder, looking to build up a portfolio and break my way into the games industry.
Currently leading development of S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Wormwood.
Still alive, but the team is pretty much all busy until summer, unfortunately.
That's well and good, but any sort of statement or update that isn't 'look how close we are to making all this money' would be very welcome. There are other crowdfunding platforms available that allow for charitable donations, and of course, the option of not doing the project and making money out of a disaster?
I've not voted on anyone's post, actually. I don't think the creation of Monopoly can be compared to the creation of a set of playing cards that are supposedly somehow memorialising the event or the lives lost, despite making money from the endeavour and no mention of any sort of charitable donation?
I don't really understand what Monopoly has to do with this?...
I would say that Paradox don't use the anniversary to launch their product purporting to be doing so as a memorial to those who lost their lives...
Since the article itself was deleted, I think I too must express my feelings on this new card Kickstarter - I feel that using the anniversary of a terrible disaster to launch a Kickstarter project is in poor taste at best, and I honestly expected better from individuals involved in the STALKER modding community due to our close affiliation with the associated events.
Making money by capitalising on the anniversary of a disaster where a lot of people lost their lives is not the way I would have thought MDT would remember and commemorate the efforts of those involved.
I'm hopeful this comment won't be deleted like the article was, but in my opinion any money made from this venture (after costs are recouped of course) should be donated to a Chernobyl-focused charity.
Judging from the multitude of comments on the article, I'm not the only one thinking this. I'm hopeful to hear a statement to this effect soon.
Still in desperate need for 3D modellers, if you are one or know anyone willing, please get in touch.
Thank you! :) When we reach that stage in the project we will be making a post asking for translators, please get in touch then too! :)
This month's Status Report is up! Alexkane.co.uk
Hehe, I thought so. I wish I could speak Russian and recruit the excellent Eastern talent as well!
Where are you finding these new modellers! They're so hard to find :/
I've tried to spread them out over each level, in hidden places that make sense for people to hide things :D
Wormwood already contains a custom version of Absolute Nature and Absolute Structures, as well as our own improvements in this area.
It will not be easily compatible with AO.
There are no 'vanilla stashes' - every stash is a brand new one :)
Haha it seems to be a feature of the Geforce Experience beta 'Share' function, one of the overlays.
2500k family represent! ;)
You're correct Nasha :) One difference though is that vanilla CoP had almost zero actual 'stashes' - they were all items lying in the world rather than containers with interesting names/descriptions/stories like we have :)
Ignore the PC specs overlay, Shadowplay neglected to tell me it was going to do that until I watched it after recording...
Of course. We won't give up, don't worry :)
Status Report for February is up!
Slow again this month - such is life as a modding team, I guess.
January Status Report is live! Check it out! T.co
Thank you, that's kind of you!
The Wormwood Status Report for January will be up this weekend!
Thankfully not, though sometimes it can feel a little like it at times :P
Thankfully I don't have to do everything by myself, I have a great team of people working on the mod with me :)
You'll have to wait and see! ;)
Thank you, we appreciate that!
Thank you! :)
why you gotta hurt me so bad :(
(it's my birthday please be nice and vote for us)
There's a reason there's an 'upcoming' category ;)
Congrats on the milestone!
