I am a 3D modeler, well, I am learning how using blender. Right now I currently only have the basics down but I am improving fast. Previously I had made several attempts to learn 3D modeling, but I was too young to understand the concepts of 3D modeling, or simply plan out the models I tried to create. Now that I am older I figured I might as well as give it a go, and now using all the the knowledge obtained from previous attempts my modeling is starting to take off. I live in Ontario Canada, and I play several sports including ice hockey, paintball, baseball, softball and football. I currently work as an umpire but I aspire to work in the gaming industry. I am strictly a PC gamer, I usually play RTS or FPS games but I occasionally find an (MMO)RPG that I will play for a while.

The Blog Well another week has gone by, and well nothing really new has happened, I did however create a youtube channel. I don't know if I will actually end up posting anything on it but I have made one. Other than that no new news.
Life Well I'm not grounded anymore...but school is kind of a drag. My teachers are assigning a lot more home work than past years. But oh well, I'm acing art, and science but I'm bombing math. My home room teacher hates my guts because I always question him, and sadly things aren't looking very good for the school year. In gym we work out to 80's work out tapes put on a projector. The worst part is that I'm not very coordinated, and find myself falling behind. Whats weird is when we do running or sports in gym I can beat pretty much anyone in my class, but then when it comes to coordination I'm really terrible.
Modeling and Mods This week once again I have no new models. I really need to start again but I can't really think of things to model. So I guess I should move on to "GAMING".
Gaming This week I played more Dual Reality, and tried out a few Mount And Blade: Warband Mods. I tried the Asian Invasion mod, and Sword of Damocles: Warlords. Also as I type this I have 2 mods downloading to play for next week.
-Dual Reality: When I played this I had expected the jump pads to be very very different than the first tech demo. The only new things that I were a platform jump pad that is just i guess a move able floor. and the jump pads were in the floor so no one could exploit the engine (meaning I didn't get to fool around for like an hour with a jump pad). Other than that the new maps were quite nice and I love the puzzles. I can't wait for the full mod and I will rate it 5/5.
-Asian Invasion: I barley played this. In fact i only did for like 10 minutes. I start the game up and nothing was different. The faction colours were different and the major towns names were different. But other than that I saw nothing different. Going to their mod db page it says their were guns but I didnt see them when i went to towns. And I couldn't get the banners to work. Overall maybe a 1/5 really they made it look a lot better than it is, and I was very disappointed.
-Sword of Damocles: Warlords: After playing Asian Invasion I really wasn't expecting much from this mod but its was very good. There were the old factions along with new ones with new classes. There were guns new armor, and coolest of all an absolutely HUGE map. There were a few game play problems though. Firstly the map was a little too big, you character moved so slow on that big map. Also it was too difficult to find someone to kill. Also they give you middle class units and throw you in the middle. Finally I didn't understand what the concept of war parties were. Overall the game was pretty good and I will give it a 3/5.
Wrapping-It-Up So as I said before I am downloading a few mods now, THAT, a half life 2 mod, Europe 1200 Beta 5, for warband, and lastly Titan: XCIX, for half life 2. Also if anyone has any ideas for my youtube please leave it in the comments.
That's another blog wrapped up.
Mini Ace, out!
