I've been going around as a writer, but started getting drawn into Concept Art and 3D modeling. I'm currently finishing my studies as a 3D artist and will then be let loose on the world. Beware!

I am having a great time learning Unreal Engine 4 and I really admire EPIC's bold move to challenge Unity and Cryengine likewise by offering better tools and resources at a reasonable price. Currently I spend more time on understanding blueprints than on actual modeling, but I'm still making models and shaders all the time. So far, I am really convinced by U4, and I don't think I'm gonna change my opinion. This is the best game engine ever created!

It all seems to add up now. I learned 3D with Softimage (which uses the same shader node system as Unreal Engine), then I taught myself Maya, which has the same controls as U4, as far as movement and snapping is concerned.
Learning UDK and Unreal Engine 3 gave me a great foundation for understanding Unreal Engine 4. EPIC learned from its mistakes with UDK and really improved everything. So it's more of a joy working with Unreal Engine 4 than UDK ever was. However, everything I learned about complex shaders is still valid. It just got easier to preview and use them.

So what's next? I decided to expand my search for work and look outside Germany. Uk or Canada would be nice! I just want to update my portfolio to Unreal Engine's 4 higher standards to really have something to show! I'm working on that. I am proud to say that I am ready for professional game development and it was a crazy journey that led me here.

Yo SinKing :)

Yeah I have Doom3, it’s a really great game, got to download the Last Man Standing Coop perhaps Sunday if not too busy, yeah sorry that you have not seen me in KF, been giving my gamecube a shoot with resident evil 0, hard game because you always have to go back on yourself either to pick some item up or got to a sector to put the item in to work a machine or something!!!!!

Sin! Did you download this version Doom 3 Coop Mod Last Man Standing Coop 3.0 Official Windows Version Featuring Classic Doom Coop? Because I think that’s the one I’m downloading soon.

I’ll have to reinstall resurrection of evil too so we can play on the expansion maps. Recently bought a external hard drive 250GB of memory so I’m getting favourite games backup and put new ones on, like Land Of the Dead, Road to fiddles green, getting it Tuesday this week I hope.

Played on KF the other day, but I had been to the pub earlier so my head was spinning and still got to waves 8 on my own, weird playing killing floor when you have a few beers, feels like the specimens come right at you more.

What’s this Full Metal Jacket Mod about and which game does it require to play?
Out Of hell is another mod to watch out for, completely a single player mod, sounds good especially when I’m resident evil fan, like one man missions to hell and back.
Also got a mod for D3 called Event Horizon, based on the movie, it’s a nice little story mod with loading screen clips from the movie.

Have u been on Defence alliances 2 recently, as I uninstalled it as their was not many people playing it but….nvm….! Cool mod but too few people so it had to go!

Perhaps see you in killing floor tomorrow, I’ll be on a server perhaps after 1.00pm and we can arrange a time the D3 co op playing section once I have download it.

See ya when I see ya,
Try e-mailing me if you wont to Have a KF game,

Cheers for pm :)

Hey Sin, :)

Hope you are well!

Thanks for reply sorry for delay, been playing resident evil 4 on PC, hard game to get used to on pc!
No worries mate about killing floor, I’m just glad we had a lot of fun times in Killing floor. It seems all of the players that played killing floor when it was released last year have just disappeared but I’m still around teaching the newbies to try and keep them alive.

Anyway what is this Armed Assault like to play? And where can I get the game from so I could have a go?

Hi Sinking m8

I agree, the RPG system for KF takes all of the tactics and team spirit out of killing floor, but I still play mate, instead of using the RPG servers I play on the German server -ill-GEISTERBAHN server, which is set to ELITE against the specimens, really hard when gets past waves 7.

Anyway I’ve missed playing by your side mate in killing floor, you are a good co-op zombie killer, Especially with a hunting shotgun/shotgun in your armoury. If you ever decide to play KF again I will be on -ill-GEISTERBAHN server playing and killing what I can.

See you in game on this server if you decide to replay KF again.

RPDUmbrellaSTARS out!!

I have played killing floor and it is rarely fun, its plagued with extremely annoying bugs and its very bland.

Response to the comment you made on one of my models, I would agree that its easier to model a muscular type but it all really comes down to your low polygon modelling skills, things become a lot easier if you can make a really good low poly that when you divide it a few times in zbrush it looks good and only requires a minor ammount of tweaking. I'm self taught I can't link to tutorials I'm sorry, if you would like me to make a tutorial in a program, Silo and Zbrush are my two most used, lemme know what type you would like, and i'll see what I can do.

Thanks for the support

P.S. Sorry about the slow reply I've been really busy with this mod and school. Also scrounge up the money for zbrush Z3 comes out soon and you won't wanna miss it.

No problem, and if you find anything else that needs to be done, either let myself or one of the other staffies know about it and we'll do our best. Plus, I'm glad you feel that way about the site. I feel the same way. :)
