Change in Leadership from Epytron_Omega to Ace_Fighter and now Hiring Post

Posted by on

Hello Everyone,

Epytron_Omega here. It is with great sorrow that I have to let you all know that I am leaving the SGI team. It has been a long, and very fun ride with everyone I worked with, from my first team member DerekBall, to R1ser, all the way to the amazing Ace_Fighter. The reasons why I am stepping down are very long, but I can tell you all this, I love this project and I hope that it shines on without me, even though I cannot set aside the time to work on it currently. I want you all to know that this was not a light decision for me to make, as I have attempted to see this through since the beginning, but it is a necessary one. As I have gotten older, found a full time Job, got married and now on the brink of having kids to teach how to mod, I have always had a passion for the work that everyone has put into SGI, as well as all the other mods out there. I will still be around, to answer questions, help here and there with textures on some of the more, hmm, complicated ships that I have built. Now to the work that I have done for the mod. While I still feel that the hard work belongs to SGI, I will leave it up to Ace_Fighter to see if he would like to allow others to use it as well. I am passing all of that off to him. They are still my models, and will be credited as so, but he has the final say as to what happens with them. I hope everyone has the best of lives, and like I said, I am not entirely going anywhere. I am still here, just no longer a member of the team.

Take care all.
Samuel Pedrick a.k.a. Epytron_Omega

(Ace_Fighter) - We are all sad to see Epytron_Omega go and he will be surly missed, he will always be apart of the team in my opinion and will have his name first in the credits when the mod is finished, this project wouldn't have been where it is today without him, for that I say thank you. On to my news now I have just finished my last final and can finally get back to modding. Unfortunately their are only a few people left actively working on the mod and SGI will need new modders. Below will be an outline of all the positions that need to be filled, I will be updating this list as more people join. If you want to join just message me (Ace_Fighter) and if you meet the qualifications I will be happy to put you on the team! The five requirements in order will be:

Beginner: Don't need that much experience, anyone really can do it.

Novice: Need some background knowledge of Sins of a Solar Empire and Stargate.

Intermediate: Needs to have more than a basic knowledge of your field. Has worked on Sins of a Solar
Empire modding either by your self or with other people for awhile.

Advanced: Need to know what your doing, has worked extensively with sins of a solar empire modding.

Experienced: Can't come to me for help (Main reason would be I have worked little to nothing in your field and would be no help to you, and these fields require you to be Good and Experienced because these fields are paramount to the success of SGI.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Leader:
Project Description: Job will be to organize the team and make sure everyone will stay on track.
-Ace_Fighter

Coders:
Requirements: Intermediate
Project Description: The first person on the coding list is the lead coder which is currently me (Ace_Fighter), if you think you are more experienced than me by all means I will make you the Lead coder, the job of the Lead Coder will be to mainly manage your underlings (the remaining three coders), this means giving them jobs to do if they have finished their current task and I (Ace_Fighter) have not given them a current task, the lead coders second task would be to help everyone else on the team with coding if they need help and if they have not come to me with their problem or if they have and I just can't solve it. Your main and most important task will be given to you by me, difficult coding dilemmas that I will task you with to complete or just another regular coding task. The last three coders jobs will be to basically change values which is extremely easy to learn and do but gets very tedious very fast, so we need people who can do these tasks hours on end without ripping your eyes out of boredom.

I want to join but I have little to no experience with modding but I know Stargate lore (Show and a couple of the books) inside and out also I know Sins of a Solar Empire but not that well. If someone shows me how to do a job I can repeat it closely.

Unfortunately most of the positions are filled, however if someone does leave I will be sure to contact you with a job that you think you can do. Right now we need modelers and texturers.

I would be happy to help out with sound, I have some rudimentary experience working with audio files, but no programming experience to speak of yet. If the procedure is fairly simply I can probably pick it up though.

What pace are the teams working at?

It's been at least a few months since I've played, but sound-wise I already have three areas in mind that could benefit from polishing etc, two of which were simple file edits which I did in my copy and could repeat.

Best of luck in your future endeavors EO and long time no chat. I hope all is well with you.

Congratulations to Ace on his new team leader position and best of luck to you as well going forward with the project.
