Mod / Game Ratings update:

Due to a need for a better system for members reviews of mods and games.
The new system requires 150 characters post for the review to be counted towards a game or mods overall ranking, by issuing a review and not leaving a comment the review is only saved for that member and doesn't affect the overall rank.

This was also put in place to encourage better communication to developers from members posting reviews.

We will be monitoring this new system but preliminary monitoring shows a positive effect.

We added some more groups to track crowdfunding and steam releases, join in and track the groups to get the news you want to see!

Each month we bring to you new and old (updated) game and mod playthroughs, trailers and weekly recaps covering the mod and indie gaming scene, so sit...

Apparently tzaka released one of my maps here at moddb without my permission, it is called "gm_micro_islands". He credited me, but he did NOT ask permission to release it here. Also, the description makes it look like he made the map himself. Here is the original release thread:

And here is my website, the link will take you to the maps page of my site, it contains only the second version of my map, but it has the same layout, just does not have the second house and island in it:

******* rich bastid. Here I am trying to get a damn used car under $2000 after I had to get rid of my LS400 due to repair costs, and you're sitting high and mighty when you're only 2 years older than me. :P

How long have you had it? :S

16k is a hell of a lot of money when you're only college-age. Maybe that's just me... was it some sort of dream car or something?

For some reason, I never noticed you owned a 180sx. Those cars can be hella expensive, even used! It's pretty darn sad to hear what happened to it, so I hope you can come up with the money to repair it. Accidents can be a nasty thing indeed, especially having to deal with the Insurance company.

I used to own a 95 Skyline. It looks kinda like this, but it had a brighter red color, a black hood, and a much better custom parts kit. It had a 425hp engine that got me blasting from 0-60 in about 5 seconds. It also had 294 pounds of torque @ around 7200 rpm.

What was in your car? :O

all 3 of his posts are in that thread, and you probably scared him away from a real mod community

It's okay. Probably didn't help I hit a typo and ended up typing gmodders instead of modders...
