I do modding, I do gaming, I do PC building, I work in retail, wahoo.

Report RSS Some mod news and where I've been.

Posted by on

So, the past year and a half or so I've been really quiet, worked on the mod for a long time, but just last year my father passed away. He was supporting most of my family with the disability, social security, and retirement funds he received, he passed away from cancer that metastasized from his lymph nodes to his brain, and it was a fairly slow ordeal, one that he was not entirely lucid through. I'll spare all the grueling details, because I don't think I can type them out. Needless to say, the government and everyone else took away everything he was giving us, and on top of hospital bills and a home that was now beyond our means, with our cars breaking down on us and everyone else out for their share of what remained of my father's life, we ended up down-sizing to a smaller home, having to buy a new car and get rid of two older ones, and I had to find a new job, one that I now work full-time, five days a week, with an over-night schedule.

What does that mean to the mod? Well, Homefront doesn't pay my bills. Infact, the one time we put up the option to donate I think we received five dollars in a five month period. I don't blame people for not donating, and we could have been more pushy or used something like adf.ly, but people protested, or refused it, and well, again, I can't live off a mod that is doubtful to even get me a job with a game company. So I had to leave the mod in all but a background advice/teaching capacity, helping occasionally when I could, and tending to my job and my own livelihood first. That's just how it is. I'd love sit here and mod all day if it paid the bills, but it just doesn't.

HHF is looking for a new coder, and I have voiced my willingness to both teach and be there to advise a new coder if need-be, so if you want to see the mod completed, it might be a good idea to actually put forth the effort to get it complete, that's what I originally did when I first wanted to join. I originally was simply giving some advice, and instead decided "well, it's not gonna get done if I wait on someone else to help them", and joined myself to help do it, and sure enough, we actually got a UNSC release out of it.

So please, help them out, learning how to code in itself is not difficult, but it is time-consuming, and you need to be able to devote yourself to it.

Lates.

Nice update :) looking forward to see a new coder in the team. Can'T be me because I'm more a modelling guy but hopefully someone with enough time (and no school like me lol) will step up and do the job :p
