Mad about game development! I am looking forward to a career in the games industry after I graduate my degrees. Also mad about C&C, the old ones.

So I finally finished a model from start to finish without stopping half way through! It is a good feeling indeed:) Normally I would start something and stop half way through, or just make a nice looking model, but will not go further on to texture it. But now I have continued onward and have finished something. This my friends is a proactive step forward, utilising goal based work ethics to produce something bigger. A total conversion:)

I hope everyone will think so, it's a rather exciting concept. Not only am I doing it because I enjoy what I do, but I also want to finish something and use it to better my ability to get my foot in the door of the games industry.

Its pretty much the only way to get in these days...Gotta have some sort of background in game development/modding...Well over here in California its basically a requirement to land a gamedev job here.

Good luck man ;)

Cheers dude, the luck wishes mean a hell of alot:P Yeah went to my first lecture yesterday of my new degree, and one point covered was that games development is no longer a cottage industry, people need professional qualifications to get in. And the job descriptions have all become abit blurred compared to say 10 - 15 years ago.

Yeah it sure is different during these times...either professional qualifications or pure raw skill from modding, CG art, and coding. Experience is the first priority of every employer's mind. I don't know how the game industry works at Australia though I'm sure its not so different from here.

Well if you need a hand at modeling...feel free to knock on my door.
I sure missed the old times when we work together at C&C Generals modding...sadly we all became a victim or RL at that time than to make something come to fruition XD.

The industry here is scaling back more into portable device development in my city (Brisbane), with some larger companies down south in Sydney and Melbourne. I do however have English citizenship and will probably find myself over in Europe once I graduate.

As for your offer, I would gladly accept any help:) Though presently I want to trial the workload just with myself to ensure I can be a good example for others. The last thing I want is, (like some previous projects) to get really excited about a concept and realise I cant actually work on it due to work, RL and studies. Then make excuses and promises that work will continue while doing nothing haha. I really want to get this off the ground and actually finish something for a change:)

So I'll trial this for a month and see how much work I get done, then if things look promising, I'll get you onboard for sure.

Same goes for other people as well:)

For me, I value the goal of completing the project as well as ensuring it remains balanced and fun over who does what and who goes into the credits at the end:)
