Hello, My name is Tanner. I'm a programmer, who likes to mod and build games in my spare time. You may know me as the lead developer on The Price of Freedom for Homeworld 2. I'm qualified in C++, PHP, and Java. I also have knowledge and skills in LUA and Python. I'm a big Sci-Fi fan, with my favorite works being anything Stargate, Homeworld, and of course, Firefly.

Only problem with that is that some people that I worked with before held the rights to yank it at will, meaning if I finished TPOF, and 5 years down the road, they ask to pull it, i'd have to dig it up, recompile everything, test everything, and then redeploy it. Basically, im not comfortable with people "changing their minds" (which they do, not saying everyone does) but, when I say fair price, I mean fair price. Right now, this is just an outline, if it comes down to it, we'll discuss one on one a deal. Just trying to scare off the trolls.

We're simply playing around with concepts that we can use. Right now, to be honest, These are simply prototypes, and proof-of-concepts. We have a policy about experimental code going into final builds. Really, we are simply showing you what we CAN do with the homeworld 2 engine. obviously this will not go into 2.5c, as right now, the whole thing (Map Targa) takes up about 64 mb of space. Not to worry, we wouldn't impede user flow through the menu system just to put in a stupid effect. :P

Yes, i have been thinking of Actually giving the DOL a similar UNCG layout. Only problem is that the UNCG are suppose to be the same, as the Superfortree should not be able to build any ships over frigate size. Also on the repair, not on purpose, but this bug rears it ugly head every so often and its hard to weed it out.
