Hello guys.


Today I just got a simple reflection about this mod, some thoughts of mine that I'd like to express with you, my followers, or fellow modders, or simply those of you who like my work and are always there leaving those awesome comments.
So let's get to it. To make things short, I can't believe how fast time goes by, how much things can change in the course of years, even life itself.
I remember a while back, when I started this mod. Back in 2012, to be exact. All I wanted was to create a single player experience that was most likely going to be a portfolio piece rather than a playable mod for the community. I was (and I think I still am) just some modder trying to recreate my thoughts and ideas into a game, THIS game actually, Doom 3, a game I loved ever since it came out (Well to be honest I was quiiite young when it first saw the light).
So without even noticing, my knowledge started to grow, after many, many years of trial and error, mapping, editing, gui coding, scripting. And here's where it all comes down. This, my project. S.T.A.R. 1088. I would have never thought I'd ever undertake on a project this big, this ambitious.
Yes, there's a lot of new stuff going on in S.T.A.R. 1088, and believe it or not, even though I did have previous experience, most of the features seen here were all learned throughout the creation of this very mod! Believe me, when I first started this, I didn't even know a language called C++ existed (Actually I did :P, but I'd never thought I'd ever even understand some of it, or even create lines for it!) And here I am, I can consider this project my very own jewel.

You can't imagine how important this is to me. I'm sure you can't imagine...


Looking back through the years, I usually have this feeling of nostalgia. If you guys notice, the older screenshots were taken in a poor 1280 x 1024 resolution screen! My old screen, the one that accompanied me through most of this process called learning.
And here's where all this nostalgia comes from. I'm sure most of you here will understand me.

Many may not, and I don't blame you!
I'm not saying this is easy, sometimes it becomes a hard and tedious task.

There's a lot to be taken care of by only one man, me, the whole team!
And I'm thankful there's still an awesome community willing to help. Be it comments, borrowed textures, sound libraries, concept art. Many of you guys helped through the development of this project.

And I hope you'll keep helping!


I've also seen how many of you loved the assets pack I've uploaded way back in 2013.

I thank you for that, for at least taking a look at it. If you enjoyed it, I guess I acomplished my task as a modder. There was a lot of time and effort put there, and it's free for you to use!


And back to this project, even though some times my life doesn't allow me to work that much on it,

not as much as I'd like to, every time I open the editor I think to myself "this is S.T.A.R. 1088, not just some mod". I'm not going to lie to you, it's difficult to map for this project, I aim for a fully detailed world where "every single square inch of the game is taken care of".

But I swear It'll all be worth it. All this effort, this project itself!
So I guess this is it, I'll try to deliver a unique experience, the best I can. I hope you don't mind this little thought, I thought I needed to share it with you somehow, wherever you are :)


I hope you guys keep up all your awesome feedback, you know who you are ;)

See you next time!

Hopefully you'll notice how much more alive the new ones look compared to the old ones you've seen previously. And these are only two out of the many more there are! :)

Guys, just a quick update. S.T.A.R. 1088 is undergoing HUGE changes as of now. It's just a sh*tload amount of work that I have to do for this. But for this I'm going to need some help from you, the community. I'm currently looking for someone that can help me a little bit in the MODELLING field. I'm going to post an article soon about all this. But I'd love to have someone lending a helping-hand to speed up the process and make this game look just as badass ;)
If you are interested, please don't hessitate and send me a message.
Thank you all in advance!

What a pleasant surprise! Had to do a new install of Doom 3, and of course it wasn't complete without your assets pack. :-)

I didn't expect to see such an awesome update. Those screenshots are TOP NOTCH. As in, that's the way the new System Shock should look. Very, very cool.

It's always encouraging to see such dedication. I wish big-name studios had a fraction of the passion that guys like you and other members of the mod community have. That's what's really missing in game development today.

I can't wait to see even more.

¿Tenés pensado agregarla la característica vista en Dead Space de 'apunta para poder disparar'? Eso sería muy genial!

Hola! No, se puede disparar en todo momento pero si queres podes apuntar para ganar precisión.
Saludos!

Hey man, thanks! If I understood correctly, for the moment S.T.A.R. 1088 is planned to only support english language
