I'm a student in London studying video game design, development and some history... and some other stuff, on one of those courses that gets slagged off by everyone for being too unfocused... so yea, hate me :'(
This looks awesome, I'd say don't stop but use in moderation. Just keep ones that work really well. The melon is most definitely one of them.
Eh, this one's harder.
I like 2, 3 and 6 the best, but I think I'm guna have to go 3.
That last one looked really fking cool.
Looks pretty cool.
Great work, lovely model and a lovely texture.
Congrats on getting a job in the industry, hope it's going well for you, and I'm looking forward to seeing which engine you pick.
It's shiny... that's all I've got.
Looks beautiful, can't wait to try it.
Looking forward to the demo, the mod is looking great, tracking.
No. At least I very much doubt it.
His birthday is only 7 days before mine ^_^
I haven't read his comments and if he has been saying things like that, he's in the wrong as well.
As for the ModDB community, looking at the recent uproar over a mod team daring to go commercial (indie... so it's hardly selling out) and countless posts there which were even less inventive, and even more insulting than "you also have the right to know your role and shut your mouth." I was using your original response as a typical example of the ModDB community, not you personally, since you're above response is pleasingly and surprisingly well formulated, articulate, and I take some of your points, as I have now scanned down the page an seen one of the posts from the author that you were talking about.
So yea, fair enough, and now I'm done with this thread... it's all getting too confusing and I simply don't care enough.
I find it shocking that ModDB is willing to spend time pulling down mods, but not users like you. This place quite often turns into a cesspit of sheer rudeness and petulant idiocy. If you don't have a constructive, dialectic response, don't respond.
I don't know why I'm bothering really, ModDB is a great tool for the modding community, and the modding community is great, the ModDB community however is a pile of crap. A bunch of 13 year olds throwing around insults they've only just learned and generally resembling a badly behaved primary school class.
Please grow up ModDB community, we're allowed to disagree with each other with out it sparking a bunch of flaming and general bad feeling.
I'm not a capitalist.
I don't care if he was a troll or not, the mod didn't need to be pulled down, and shouldn't have been pulled down.
Then don't play it, ignore it like a sensible adult deciding something just isn't for them. People don't need protecting, they have common sense.
How was this a threat to moddb? Newgrounds get slagged off by confused mainstream press now and again, never did it any harm, quite the opposite in fact, and the people who use this site know you don't make the content that's hosted here, so we're hardly guna stop using it because there's a distasteful mod hosted.
I say put it back up, it has a right to be here.
Lol, you're right, he does a little, not that there's anything wrong with that, not enough cross eyed characters in games.
Great image & character model.
Looks interesting, the HUD needs a lot of polishing but lots of time for that later. Basic gameplay makes sense and that shadow at the end got me really excited. Looking forward to seeing more.
Exciting work, it's looking great and you guy are obviously being very intelligent as far as your design goes.
Looks pretty good, I agree to an extent with sgccode9's comment about the text. I could read it but it wasn't exactly easy on the eye. Only other thing I would say is that custom some sfx would be cool but that's just me being very nit-picky, there's nothing wrong with using the default HL2 sfx.
Sharing content is great, it needs to be done for this community to thrive. Not crediting content and disregarding peoples request to do so, or even to not use their content, is not good, and will only create an atmosphere of mistrust in the community and put up barriers for interaction and collaboration between different mod teams and individual modders. Stealing content from commercial titles is stupid and you shouldn't do it unless you have solid permission to do so, in which case it isn't stealing, but good luck getting that permission.
That's pretty much my views in a nutshell.
Game looks cool, what's that awesome song over the trailer? Like seriously... I nearly gasm'd...
YW, it's an excitingly ambitious project.
This mod is such a great source of desktop backgrounds... seriously, already happily used 6 pieces of art as my backgrounds already.
I'm more of a Babylon 5 fan but thanks anyway...
I am? O.o
Well thanks... btw, I accidentally deleted your friend request, and I have to admit, I can't work out how to send one myself, so if you want to re-send I'll be sure to accept this time.
