Private security obliterate these stupid pirates attempting to board a cargo ship. To be honest it is rather satisfying to see someone actually taking some effective action against them. Given how dangerous and ruthless they can be, I wouldn't think about shooting at them if they were coming toward my ship.

They were pretty stupid to attack ship with armed guards... Either way I reckon they got what they deserved.

In other news I have been working on texturing in the recent months. I have started a side project to re-texture every weapon in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. arsenal with a 2048² texture. You can find the downloads for what I have made so far in the addons section of my profile. Here are two of the renders. I plan to add to this project piece by piece.

SIG-SG550 ASSAULT (Re-texture Project)

OTS-14 Thunderstorm Retextured

I have also been in collaboration with a DidJay, the author of Farcry 2010, to retexture the original FarCry weapons. I done 3 weapons so far and hope to soon be posting a render, once I figure out how to set up the max plugins.

In the gaming universe I have some screenshots from the various games I have played recently. Tomb Raider was a brilliant game, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I also finished Metro Last Light, which was also on the list of top games for 2013. Anyway here are some of my screens.

Metro: Last Light Metro: Last Light

In other news I have made a new avatar inspired by Half Life 2 and I finished my CAD project with Autodesk Inventor, which I thankfully did quite well in which made all the time and effort I put into it worth it.

Project finished

Finally my new avatar, here it is... Thanks for reading my rather pointless blog post, which was typed out of desperation to procrastinate from studying. Hopefully you found some of it sort of interesting.

Pretty good so far actually. We're not nearly as busy as I initially expected, but I think once we start with the bigger projects in May it'll pick up.

Well, most of my lecturers are pretty decent. The second semester work seems, so far, to get interesting. Not so sure about 1st semester though...

Posted this on sgt davis's profile, could just as well give you the same tips :P

-Do not let the tutorial tests demoralize you! (Guessing the tut system is at most uni's). The important part is understanding what to do in the tutorial problems. Tut tests are evil and don't make much diff in the long run.

-For exams always work trough your notes, cross reference what are in the notes with what is in your text book. Work through all tutorial problems (because they are usually previous year's exam questions.). And working through previous year's exams is a must, because you would be surprised how they just copy paste questions.

-Always, but always stay on top of your math subjects!

-Even if you think you will never understand some work, give it time, your brain will make the connections, maybe after some sleep, maybe after talking to a fellow student about it or maybe even after the semester is over, doesn't matter. As long as you pass over all.

ps. why are most SA guys on moddb engineers? weird. oh must be because we are drawn to sites like this.
