I have left moddb
This sort of "FAN" is why modding is slowly but surely dying.
I agree OrangeNero they should take action and mute you for a month.
Should be quite the lesson in online manners.
Many people spent quite a lot of time making this mod.
I have decided to return briefly to offer my thanks to all the team members involved in making this mod.
Especially , Seth , John( Commiedog) , Mat , Eric and many others.
I have watched over the years how much time and efforts were put into not only the mod but modding this engine in particular.
They started out with a leader the knew inside and out more then most modders(of this engine) could. Things got featured on youtube and a small crew joined including Eric, sadly this led to high expectations and Seth lost enthusiasm for the project, he noticed Eric still had heart to complete it so told him to take the reigns.
At that time many people thought the mod died.
Fact is without Eric and Mat the mod would have.
They spent at least 2 years in meetings and Skype calls to learn more and train people.
Many came , more then a few including myself left.
Teaching new people found by Eric, Mat would apply strict model standards.
They trained a few up and helped discuss modelling issues and exporting problems.
The retraining and readvertising for help was dedication that was largely responsible for the acquisition of john's help to get coding done.
Meetings there were many meetings usually on Skype with screen sharing and lots of learning involved.
Months passed years passed many were trained to disappear / reappear on other projects.
I got sick and had to leave , others joined and the show went on.
They finally produced a public playable version with reduced content.
More plans were made extravagant plans that may have incurred costs so they produced a sponsorship button : this is what people seem to be offended about ?
You get that things like mocap and actors for better animations ect cost money right people ? not saying you had to sponsor them but damn you actually think its about cash at this stage after a decade ?
There is literally thousands of things that could be bought to help a mod.
However even if it only went into one account the problem is not yours to comment on UNLESS you worked on the mod or are actively working for EA and aiming to lose them money by making enemies for sums that likely don't add up past petty cash for the canteen.
That's one hell of a story you have there but its murder to try and read. Perhaps it would help to add in paragraphs , though this can prove difficult given the limits of moddb. Well done on your start of game production remember the longest journey begins with a single step.
RA3 modding is different and as such would take me longer and is not easier or even "better" as an option to use I have said this time and again yet very few people here listen.
Truth is I haven't even been working on this for a while due to one other project which I was assisting on... which is no longer in development. this frees up time to double check here and to merely start anew getting the objects I have into game takes incredible amounts of time and patience... speaking of patience .. apologies for poorly themed news from my major contributor colonel wog , he has in truth allowed me to use a few objects so kudos to the better modder but ill be staying on this project.
Your forum reply post was epic and I just wanted to thank you for the best laugh I had all day.
I'm definitely liking your hands and legs on this character.
Ah if only modding consoles was a safe option, sadly most manufactures hate mods, they even go as far to try and make the machine fail on purpose to stop people modding the hardware or software sides.
Sadly I don't see an end to the consistent money grab mentality of console manufacturers despite the fact mods could showcase their hardware better then more collections of boring titles that nobody wants to play anyway.
Why then block us ? License fees of course.
funny and very well done :)
If your asking for testers it will probably help if you mention which game your mapping for as there are a few dozen games and while I could technically find it if I lookup where rise of the red sys mod is its definitely going to impact your recruitment possibilities.
Hello hows it going with the cloth animation style.. its something that's killing me to do what about you guys ?
(I personally use two helix objects as my main rig controllers and a standard cloth animation to move it but im getting minor amounts of occlusions)
All the best for your project and ill be tracking it as you go.
terrain is done,music is partially done
90K models .. in progress and in need of serious animation
sure they all suck ,stink and look terrible I suggest you go play your triple A games and let me work in this engine.
I returned as I left the game team I was with.
My aim is not to rush this anyways thus its a comment rather then a news posting, I work on other items while im at this so don't go expecting much anyway.
You are right my models do look like **** (some Ill replace or not use, however it wouldn't be easier to swap out to 2d as due in most part to the relearning the engine and redoing everything all over again , unless of course I swap down to generals for the simplicity of its coding vs xml , however generals does not allow as much freedom when finished example you cannot player script in generals and I would need to get generals once more as my cd died and I cant get English.big working ...
No longer dead.. once again in production super slow going as its just me this time... oh and im not bothering to hire people anymore it will be completed by me and will probably take another 2-3 years thanks everyone
Mod is sadly at this stage dead. I have added news and shown a few parts that would have been in the mod should I have finished it.
Please note that I did try to find more staff and even spent cash on this project which I can assure you my wife was not happy about.
My attempts at finding a suitable coder were frustrated at best and the one hire I did try merely lept off to do other coding jobs that paid more. I had no intent to sell this mod / charge for its download as feel sad that I dont intend to finish it at this stage.
hey sorry to hear about your computer failure x3n you were and are an inspiration to us modders out there... as for backing up stuff on flashdrive sticks...this isnt so easy as most good mods actually use more then that.
imaginefx disc content.
Wrong sorry champ not from there and please do note this came from a bulk set of models available to download at Centrasoft.com
Some really cool directors there although i recommend Robert Rodriguez.. watch a few of his films with the commentary on.. some great low budget tips.Also there is a lovely channel on you tube called indie mogul.
A quality Map with some great areas to fight in well done
Some great stuff on your blog there.
so did mine when i found it... and credit for this model is listed in our forum .. please note this Mod is not going to be released for a purpose of profit , glory or anything else : just for the sheer want of a fun game to play.. plus mere practise in animating and understanding how games work...please note this model is yet to be textured fully.
This model comes from a downloaded paid model pack purchased a whiles back.. and sadly the 500 3ds models pack did not give out the individual authors details. We are trying to make a list of model makers and what they added however with this task is a very tough list also note many archmodels will be in here too as will many others... some of the makers have wrote the information in other languages and all efforts to translate them are being undertaken.
At this stage im finding more of my time used making lists rather then animating ,coding ,rigging or getting items in game.
ever read the forum ?
this is absolutely awesome always good to see some sharing happening
Sweet looking mod you got here henford really well detailed great work.
this sort of comment from a retard that gives mid east crysis mod a score of 1...
This game is quite fun and honestly I feel its got alot of great features , however I still dream of a day when multiplayer comes to this great game..
Its is loooking very good, only a little thing i could add though is perhaps you could make some of the posters a little less square..make a ripple with 4-6 polys for a nice asymetric look rather then too much symetry.
Damage a corner or two and you will surely help add a touch of use / been used which may or may not be something your after.. also my personal opinion would be added scratch marks under the woodenchair would help sell it as part of the scene.
Also perhaps it maybe an idea to add a power point and some cords.
its possible derek :) pm laters for more
Well its funny you say this.. X3n has actually sent me the code and this will be added.. made of course by x3n and the omega group.. which of course is going to help this mod alot, actually X3n has been one of my main sources of help in modding this game along with madabia.
