My names Jamie, but I prefer to be called SpooBoy. I play games, CSS and L4D2 mainly. I work for Opposing Forces 2 as their storyboard consultant, if you got any questions about the mod don't be shy to ask. Anyways if your looking at my profile I've either pissed you off or got your attention by pissing someone else off, please, comment.
Lately I've been messing around with the Portal 2 Authorizing tools and I've fallen in love with creating test chambers and making my own Portal universe. I've seen a lot of really creative Portal and Portal 2 mods spring up, but I know many of you are only making small maps, that are not quite mod worthy. There are websites to share these creations, but I strongly believe there should be a place to share these creations on Mod DB. The idea passed through my head to create a mod page called something to the extent of 'The Portal Map Experiment' where users can submit maps and share their work. The way I'm hoping this pans out follows:
1. User submits images, videos, and or downloads to a (Portal Map Experiment) developer/moderator .
2. Said (Portal Map Experiment) developer/moderator reviews the content to ensure relativity.
3. The user is sent a letter informing them of their authorization.
4. The content is posted for the community to see and critique.
5. The process can repeat as the user so feels inclined.
To me, Mod DB screams out for a community experiences. And nothing is more in the spirit of a community than sharing, critique, and revision. This would be an effective way for mappers to get a start, and put their foot out the door into the modding community. If anyone is interested in this idea, or would like to help out, please send me a letter, or comment bellow. It would be greatly appreciated!
Hey everyone, I'm not quite sure how many people actually check out my page but I thought writing a quick news update about my current situation might help matters. So, lets get started shall we. As many of you may know I'm the "Storyline Coordinator and Writer" for Opposing Forces 2, but that doesn't mean I cant have fun on my own side project(s). That brings us to the main event, I've recently started mapping (with sdk of course) and am working on 2 different mods, one by myself, and the other with a few friends. However, I am no mapping genius and when I map I seem to cause more problems then help matters, so I'm looking for those who would like to assist in the mod I am making. There is a storyline in the works, but nothing is solid. As for positions I'm looking the following:
Mappers- Looking for those who have SDK experience and can correctly and realistically map.
Coders- I don't know what the hell you guys even do...
Artists- enough said
Assistant writers/storyboard coordinators- If you think you can contribute with the storyline and or updates (upcoming page)
Thoses who think they have what it takes add me on steam (firstname.lastname@example.org) or contact me at my email email@example.com. Also keep in mind that most likely this will become an actually mod and once I get a page things will be more official. Anyways, as far as my first news update goes, think its not that bad.
