Afternoon ladies and gentleman....Who am I kidding? Afternoon Gentleman, hope we are all following the mod, that way you can tell me what is going on better than me, because I honestly thought I was the first Dev. Blogger for the Guard Duty mod. I would like to first point something out, there is a mod that is called Black Mesa: Shift, their motto is “ Get ready for a long Shift!”. This would of course be fine if not for Guard Duty’s motto is “Get ready for a long shift.”. Admittedly we do not have an exclamation mark at the end, so I put it to you (the community) to never utter than motto unless you are talking about the true bastion of mod godliness that is Guard Duty.
Ok, rant over, now to the true content of this blog. I am a texture artist as stated in the opening media update written by yours truly. I am effectively everyone on the mods bitch, it is hard sometimes to have so little creative input. I am requested to make something or RE-make something; it is in the vision of the mapper. At first I did not care, eventually it was an issue and now the issue has subsided, partly because I understand that this is a team effort and the mappers are important to making the mod great. I can make a great texture on its own, and maybe some of you will make it your desktop wallpaper, however, that texture would look shit in a room that has been crafted by the mapper for the past few months with a vision of having red concrete (not the pink leather I think is awesome). Also, I have been in the mod, people know me and a few times I have snapped or done something that means that everyone is very considerate. So in this case I get asked by out new mapper Spycrabz, this is what he said.
“I need a sign, using this design (hurr), for the entrance to the portal room. The sign should read "All personnel are to stay at least 3m from the geometric center of this room unless system is fully deactivated", And the diagram should show a stick-figure man being sucked into a portal.
Oh, and it should be an overlay.
That please at the end is from when I had a little forum-based shout about politeness and etiquette. So ask me to do something for free, say please lads. Courtesy. That aside, I made a video of me making it, it’s a screen-capture, time-lapse, all very exciting, I chose the music and I understand that it is to most people’s distaste but I cannot make everyone happy, enjoy! Please
Stay tuned for more news from us ;).
