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.
Yes, that's the plan right now.
We've renamed mainly because the mod has grown so far beyond Redux, that it's not really appropriate to keep calling that. It's its own thing now :)
To clarify our choice of name - Wormwood is the translation for Chernobyl, it's also the name of the Red Forest, and it has biblical/deep rooted connotations for poison and sickness, to represent our aims with the survival aspect of the mod.
We hope you'll agree it's a fitting name!
Thanks for your support!

Valued by science for their unique olfactory centres!
Please bear in mind all content is still work in progress, and totally subject to change!
Release is still due in the future, Wormwood Week is all about info on the mod, new feature announcements and community interaction.
Welcome to the relaunch folks! Check out our new website, explore some of the features coming in Wormwood, and let us know what you think!
We're still deciding on replacing the vanilla weapon models, but at this point it's looking likely.
Let's not get into comparisons, please.
We're fast approaching the moment you've been waiting for, our rebranding relaunch! Keep a close eye on the page next weekend, as we have a lot of exciting stuff in store...
We are looking into options :)
I'm not sure what you mean, are you saying we should use models that are out there already? We much prefer to create as much of our content as we can to ensure the best quality, and we don't want to have pages and pages of content used from other sources.
Haha the actual design of it is really strange, I hope that's what you mean!
Thanks for the comment!
There's very little info out there on the PBS suppressors, but from what I could find (http://www.red-alliance.net/forum/index.php?topic=8823.0), PBS-5 was for AK74-U and PBS-1 for the AKM.
Good points about the positioning and rotation though, thanks for that!
Next up on the caliber-specific silencer list is the 5.45mm 'PBS-5', created by Virgil!
We're working very hard on the imminent relaunch, and if anyone's skilled in creating flash animation, we'd like to hear from you! We want to create a countdown for the main page, but none of us possess the skills required (we can't be amazing at EVERYTHING right?!), so get in touch!
Poltergeist with a full body, it looks like?
Impressive, that was a great guess. How did you know? The fence outside?
Let's keep it a secret for now ;)
You guys have some really impressive NPC models! Any chance you have spare modellers hanging around who need work? ;)
Another day, another new interior goes into the game!
These are a high priority for the dev team, but our lack of 3D modellers is really slowing down the rate at which we can produce new, high-quality interior spaces.
If you're a 3D artist with experience in Autodesk Maya (preferably), please get in touch and help us out! These pieces would look great on your portfolio.
Might I recommend restricting voting to Members next year?
Would you believe Etcetera. and I had this exact conversation when we started all this? I was off on the bridge by a letter :(
We'll be settling down to a more sane level of content posting again now that MOTY is over, so we'll finish off 2014 with this shot - recognise where it is?
We're hard at work on the rebranding/relaunch which we have planned for January - the new ModDB page design was just the beginning, so keep an eye on us this coming year!
Happy New Year, let's make 2015 another great year for Stalkers everywhere!
We didn't make the Top 5 Upcoming mods this year, but it's been a wild ride! Being in the Top 100 has been amazing, so thanks for all your brilliant support!
With your help, next year we'll win Best Released mod of 2015 ;)
