I'm a jack of all trades, master of none. My talents range from game modeling to CAD to actual production. I've designed and helped build an airplane cockpit, designed 50 x 50 foot exhibition spaces, and worked on several successful mod projects - and I love getting random PMs, so say hi. :)

$20,000 is a lot to make an indie game. That raised a flag for me before i donated. But I still donated, so if I was willing to have faith in the project then, I feel that the least I owe is waiting this story out and not overreacting.

Neat but how does that stock actually attach to that drum? It's not realistic that it just kind of jams up against it. How does that stock break to allow reloading of the grenades? The grip on the bottom also doesn't seem very comfortable.

License a movie track? To put in a trailer? Do you really think that's necessary for a tiny team? How much lost revenue do you think Warner Bros is really getting from them having the music in the trailer?

I'm not trying to be an *** about it, but there's a line between reasonable and unreasonable, and going through all the trouble and fees of licensing a song from a movie for a personal project is unreasonable IMO.

Looks great, really enjoying the alpha. :) You have some VERY impressive mod capability built into the engine already.

Well, I like your idea, it looks to be very interesting. I disagree with willy-wilson, I don't think I've seen any of this stuff before.

As for your game, you've got an interesting core idea but you have not refined anything outside of that idea at all. Your shooting mechanics are sloppy, and your levels are poorly paced.

Nevertheless, yo uhave an interesting art direction and general concept behind this. I'm tracking you as I see a chance for your project to succeed in whatever goals you have for it.

Hi there. I have a suggestion for you that might help Desura's userbase grow.

Here at my university, RIT, we have a very large gaming organization that regularly hosts LAN parties that can go up to 200 people. In fact, we just finished with a LAN party this weekend that was "small" at 80 people.

Now, at these LANs we host several tournaments, with prizes donated by sponsors. Futuremark, for instance, regularly sends prizes for us hosting a Shattered Horizon tournament.

Just last night, there was a call for Goldeneye: Source. Not many knew about ModDB or about getting it off there, and they definitely didn't know about Desura.

What I'm suggesting to you is that Desura sponsor prizes for mod tournies - games like Goldeneye: Source or other indie games or mods that want exposure. It helps out the mods and it helps out your service.

If you want to know more, PM me and I'll get you in touch with the right people.

Agreed. The Source engine was showing it's age several years ago. It's a pretty limited engine all things considered these days.

I like this - are you shooting for a sort of World in Conflict style multiplayer? There are some definite improvements that could be done for that formula.

Nice, but...those *twinkle/giggle* sounds get really annoying really fast. Nice trailer otherwise, though I'm wasn't sure what the gameplay actually is...I just read your description, so I get it now, but in the video you only had one relatively brief scene where you actually saw someone drawing something, otherwise it was just watching the little guy go across a line.

1) Yea, I meant crashing as in game-over. Also a bit less leeway when it comes to the rider staying on the motorbike might be nice.

But I mean in general when I hit something at like 80 miles an hour, I should get hurt in some way. When I hit it with the bike I just kind of fly 30 feet into the air and then thud back on my two wheels. :)

2) It was just the starter bike, I've literally only started playing FUEL because of this mod (it fixed the biggest problem I had with the game, with the driving not being fun at all out of the box).

I was also wondering if it's possible to get manual shifting? That was the other big thing I missed in FUEL.

Just tried my first race, absolutely great, the motorcycle is finally great to drive, and I LOVE the extreme weather effects.

That being said, the background sounds of the weather is too weak. With all those leaves blowing around and thunderstorms going off, you should be hearing a RACKET behind the engine, but you don't. :(

InvertedVantage Dec 18 2010 says:

Just played it, excellent game - finally fun to actually drive these things.

However, two requests;

1) Enable death in free-range mode. It really is an immersion killer if I can fall from a mountain and not die. The whole point of surviving and exploring out in the wilderness is the trying not to die while braving the odds. The original FUEL and this mod so far lack this :(

2) Could you raise the camera point on the motorcycle to be at a realistic level with a human head, perhaps do this with all of the vehicles? It would make driving a lot easier, right now my eye point is about where the headlight is - in the weeds. Also, if while I'm in the camera view, it'd be great if I could still look around.

Then I'd suggest designing the gameplay so as to properly allow the dinosaur players to act like dinosaurs - i.e. give them movement bonuses, maybe play with how well they blend into the environment, give them advanced vision modes, etc - basically let them act like the brutal hunters that dinosaurs are. :D

InvertedVantage Dec 11 2010 says:

Lol looks like a lot of fun. Does still smack a lot of the UE3 engine though, and your dinosaurs don't seem to behave much like dinosaurs would (predatory, not running at you in a hail of gunfire). I think one of the big things you're gonna have to do is pull up the AI to really push how these dinos behave, otherwise you're just fighting zombies (which is what the video footage you've posted ends up looking like).

Cheers. :)
