I am a computer engineering/applied computer science student in his final year. My main focus is software design and implementation ('programming'), but I also have hobby-experience doing some Blender 3D modeling and level design for various games!
Gyro override! I was wondering when this was going to be added.. apparently sooner than I had expected!
I love how the modding/workshop support keeps getting improvements. Modding can drastically increase the game's 'lifetime' so decent modding support is both awesome for the players and has the potential of increasing sales :) Thanks, developers!
Where have you been all those years. Forums posts such as yours were very much needed.
I love these reports, I'm not an aircraft fanatic or anything so I learn a lot of new stuff every time, even though you don't really go into tiny details (which is in my opinion a good thing though).
That VTOL variant is so interesting :P The design reminds me of an AWACS plane. Illuminati AWACS anyone?
Ah yes, I actually wanted to ask you guys what you thought of LoG now that it was released, but then I figured other people probably already asked that and I waited for your next newspost as I expected some kind of reply.. and here it is ;) It sure looks interesting, but I still prefer MSOA. I guess you could say I'm some kind of fanboy? >.<
Looks great, I think I will give this a try!
I love the look on the seal's face when the shark bites him. He looks like he doesn't care at all.
Those mountains look odd (the edges), are they photoshopped?
Indeed I was waiting for the not-so-nice models but there were none. And where did my mind go... oh wait it was blown.
Yeah it's a good opportunity to get some extra money from the people that don't want to pay the full price I suppose. I guess I should just see such bundles as, say, Steam sales, which is where I buy the games I'm not interested in enough to pay the full price. (Not sure if that sentence is correct but hopefully you get the point)
"Hmm, another bundle?" was exactly my first thought (although I thought it in Dutch). It is a nice initiative, I guess I'm just jealous I've paid too much for those games when I bought them at release. It's a shame indie games seem to be treated like budget games these days though. Not because they're 'indie', which seems to be some kind of status nowadays, but because most developers deserve a higher reward for their labour.
EDIT: Shouldn't it be "Awesome, love it and BOUGHT the games" and "Great, didn't buy this one THOUGH", or am I missing something (a pun perhaps)?
And you get your info from.. where exactly?
I've heard that one before, but as far as I could find EA was the distributor, not the publisher. It would make Valve not-indie if EA is publishing their games, yes.
Of course they would still be creators of indie games because they made a couple of games without having an 'external' publisher. So they would be a non-indie studio with indie games! ... I think.
Speak for yourself :( Ah who am I kidding.
Oh wow suddenly I'm a lot more interested in this mod :|
Woot! How can you not like this :D Epic nostalgia.
I'm not a fan of those texts like "SupraHuman Reflex (?) saved me" and "You've killed a captain", will it be possible to disable those? The rest looks awesome as always though.
Is that the shadow of a person to the right? :/ Someone with his/her hands up?
When we're talking about code, yes I do 'reinvent the wheel'. I'm currently still in the first learning phase so to speak, and I believe that I will learn a lot more if I analyze existing programs/parts of programs and try to write them myself. That way I know exactly what I'm working towards, while also gaining experience with how to structure my programs.
Of course I don't plan on doing this my whole (hopefully in the future professional) coding career long, because that would be a waste of time. But for learning purposes it's in my opinion a very valuable thing to do.
That trailer reminded me of the (older) C&C games and their cutscenes. Which is a good thing. This mod/game still looks great, but it already did so when I found out about this mod/game. (Technically it's a total conversion mod right?)
Wow.. That look damn impressive. Now the only thing that's missing is 'destructable' foliage, for example bushes that'll stay 'down' when a tank has driven over them.
It's a TEASER trailer ;)
With "noon" being what time exactly? Because I'm from Europe (which will probably will make for laggy play now I think of it) so it's like.. 8 hours later here. But well, I probably am :)
Nice concept, there is one important aspect really lacking though.. players. Without players this game can't be played. Maybe you could organize something to get some players online at the same time? Shooting at empty buildings bet boring real quick ;)
I hope he won't, because I want to be able to decide myself whether I want modded graphics or not.
I'm not a fan of the assault rifle (2) muzzle flash :/ It's too blue :P
It's a shame I already own most games that get a 'delayed' Desura release :( It's good to see Amnesia got a Desura release anyway.
That reminds me, I still need to 'man up' and finish the game lol.
You don't HAVE to pay the subscription fee, you can just quit after the first month :) I hope so at least :P
"made by a lone Russian hacker."
I thought hackers were people challenging digital security? :P
Anyway it sounds like a great improvement if the server load has dropped from 2 to 0.2 (whatever those numbers exactly mean) ;) So yay for the wonders of ever-improving technology.
4+ roles. I'm working on every aspect of my mods/games but I'm not a solo dev for I have a friend that helps me out with models every now and then.
Isn't the lower pitch thingie a bit cliché? :P
That was nice. I have to agree with about everything MrTambourineMan said though. Plus there are some spelling errors ;)
Hmm I still haven't played this mod but I really should :( Don't have time for it though.. meh.
Lol of course you would. Most engine licenses are quite expensive and buying the engine itself would cost even more.
Exactly, calling this 'almost like its (it's) using the Source engine' could be considered an insult :P
"The look of the menus and font etc. should improve in an update pretty soon."
So it's going to look even better? I think it already looks nice, but it's a bit odd it's possible to move the different parts of the menu.
Hmm yeah that works, nice and thanks.
I don't think it looks "really good" without AA.. I don't know the resolution you're using, I'm using 1920*1080 and I thought it was pretty annoying and distracting :/ If they don't add AA in the full game I'll obviously just have to live with it though. The rest of the graphics/game looks and sounds great.
It's running pretty good here (Intel core2duo E6850 3 GHz, 8GB RAM, GeForce 8800GT 512MB) and I've already had some fun with editing scripts. The absence of anti-aliasing kinda made my eyes bleed though D:
Yeah true, but it still looks weird. We'll see how it turns out.
Nooes, this needs more comments?
This project should not 'die' at such an early stage.
Those eyes are... pretty big? :/ :O
Or maybe it's because they are untextured, I don't know.
I know, but naming a song zombie island for a WW1 mod doesn't make sense, so i started to suspect it wasn't his own work.
I didn't say this is a good mod, but he should've given credits to those who have made the song. Even if it isn't necessary it's always good and nice to give credits to the artist.
Yeah it the best example (I think) is the 'ability'-contest from The Rising. All the ideas of others were voted down because everyone wanted to win.
And yay for anti-spam measures! BTW, who cares about ranks/levels on forums/sites anyway.. I guess I'll never understand :P
Editors Choice, because hopefully they won't only choose Source mods.. :P
But I'm almost as much excited to see the Players Choice winners, because in the end mods are made for the players ;)
Looks like the X3 games.. which is a good thing IMO! Wow! :P
Ohhh maann.. I always wanted to pre-order both games, but I didn't want to spend that much money.. but now I have no reason not to pre-order =D
W00t! Thanks so much for this epic pack!
Nice, I love how you're 'supporting' your game with comics!
And I think only the cross should be red (:
For some reason I hate colored text.
Oh man.. another great and intelligent way of solving a problem. Awesome post as usual!
I voted game changing but maybe my opinion will be different after using it.. it looks and sounds promising though!
Wow, that looks great! I'm going to download episode 1 now.. =D
YAY, it's released.. =D
I have 8GB RAM, but a 8800GT 512MB.. so I don't think this will run too well? Unless it is equivalent to a Geforce 260, but I don't think it is.. right? (Haven't really been following the gfx card developments the last 20 months :/)
Oh, and a Intel E6850, probably too slow as well :(
Windows.. :/ :(
And I know near nothing about baking normal maps or normal maps themselves.. *shame on me*
Looking forward to the Tesla Tower with it's over nine thousand ampere..! =D =D
Now, on a 'more serious note', if you get those new features working, it would be awesome!
Wow, very nice cathedral :)
Like Hendrix said, it kind of has 'that comic book feel' to it, something that I really like.
Yep, congrats everyone!
Great model :)
Great.. but like some other guys already said: the lightning flash could use some work.. because it doesn't look realistic
The skull.. I think it's on the weapon, and on some screens in the lower right corner of the screen.
It's nothing very important, but like I said in my previous comment, I was just wondering.
And yay for the installer, I'll try the mod tomorrow :)
I think this can make game development a little bit easier for some teams, it's a great idea.
Do you have permission to use the image of the skull? ^^
Because I think you just googled for "skull" and found this one.
At least I found that image that way.
Downloading now, I don't know how to install mods for the steam version of UT3 though..
Sweet.. this looks much cooler than the first X32I IMO ;)
Nice model and nice texture.. looks pretty realistic.
Sigh, my video driver still lets me down.. So no Manta's Pulse for me :(
Cool, I'll give it a try!
(That is if my videodriver fixed some weird problems I had with the previous driver)
David & Goliath.. Sci-Fi style? ^^
This could be something very interesting. Cool!
W00t, awesome! I'm going to like this mod more and more, keep up the good work!
SinKing, my first impression was exactly the same, but after playing this mod a couple of hours I found out this is quite a cool mod :)
Nice, I love the in-game screenshots, well done!
But.. what is this Moddb.com ?
Is it a lamppost?
Nice tutorial/article, I think this could be very useful for a lot of people!
I love concept art and I love to see how it is drawn, so thanks for posting this!
It looks great :)
Those models are great! They look a bit low-poly to me though, but that's probably because I'm used to the models for Crysis.
Wait, you're 'only' 19 years old? 0.o
Anyway, I just wanted to say that I love your concept art stuff :)
It's a shame I don't have Doom III..
Btw, what's the name of the song?
Wow, all I can say is: w00t!
I love this game, it's not to complicated but still very addictive.
I don't really see the point of the defensive trees though :P
I think I used this one :)
You guys really know how to create a great atmosphere for this mod!
Oh nice, you're staff now? :)
Hey, just wondering, are you also on Crymod? :)
Can't you upload it to a site where I don't need to create a new account? I would like to play this game but I hate creating accounts every time I want to download a mod :(
Err, probably every newspost gets on the frontpage?
I hope the next newsposts will be of a higher quality (no offence) and more mod-related. Not just some "Random Skill movies".
OK, cool. Yeah I didn't know you are only with 2 modders on this mod, found out after I posted that comment. Now I find this mod even more impressive!
This mod looks and sounds good, but I think the textures on the models could use some work. (It's not like "I demand new textures!!1one", it's just my opinion ;) )
Wow yeah that's a superb texture indeed.
Wow I thought this was a picture.. but I it is in-game, right? O.o Beautiful!
Lol "Views: 1 (1 today)" with 4 comments :P
Nice screenshot, looks very realistic.
This mod is getting better and better.. very nice screenshots!
Cool video :P
Oh my that looks like a lot of fun. And the nostalgia when hearing that FarCry theme again.. it's too much.
Hmm well it was kind of creepy, you sent me an invite half an hour after I checked out your profile. I was like "How did he know!?". Anyway hello, check out my comment on your video please? :D
PC New. If my bank account allows it I try to buy a new high-end PC every 3 years.
I could list my order but that would probably be a little spoilerish to the people that haven't played them yet.
Here we go again, the mod-planning-to-go-commercial rage. While I can understand both sides (people being angry at the devs; the devs trying to go commercial) I'm honestly surprised every time I read the comments on such an article. Mod/game developers owe their fans nothing really and while it's 'sad' that we have to pay for something that could've been free it's still the choice of the developer. If they decide to ask money for their work (which is perfectly fine of course, time is a very valuable thing) and potentially lose fans/buyers, so be it. Is it really that hard to accept that? Also, not getting downvoted for not being angry for once would be really nice.
Developers: While I understand why you are doing the kickstarter stuff it does sound a bit, well, strange: donating money to allow you to buy a license so you can receive (more) money ;)
Yes that would be nice, but I don't think the game/engine can support that. Plus it would require a new save file format.
Nice, but I'm not a fan of Dutch in games.
I'm Dutch myself, but I prefer English, so I'm just going to use the English version (:
Wow you have made a lot of.. 'friends'.. in only 3 days!
