Can you lend your knowledge to S3? Do you have the knowledge and dedication we need? Yes? Well come on in... Lets make a masterpiece.
Put it this way guys and gals, Im knee deep in the doo-doo...
I have got hardly any experience modding with Source SDK and limited knowlege and use of Blender. I havent got ANY knowledge of C++ or scripting. (Needed for new gameplay mechanics such as those classic Quick Time Events we all love.) I have only known texturing, and where oh where do I expand on the Shenmue Story-line.
In truth the hardest part of this whole project will be adapting the Source Engine to be an Open-World Free Roam forum. It will take many hits and misses to learn and understand how to adapt and fiddle with the beast, to twist and contort it into a game development tool; to which we can periodicly set events, days, time, weather, maps. (For example in the winter there will be different enviromental effects and changes to the streets and enviroments such as rain and or even people wearing different clothing.) Its not an issue of size or time therefore, but more of patience. Im all sure we couldnt care less if S3 was 10 gb to make it the perfect game it deserves to be. Its just that 10 gb of polish and repition to the fine detail is the bain that will take a tremendous amount of time, even years, to successfully fufill. I feel confident in my idea of how we need to implement all of this, especially in a way that works and is easily playable, but strongly reminiscent of the Shenmue Games. (One of our biggest challenges, alongside patience and belief itself.) This therefore will take a great deal of time and effort but we can do it....
