Aw. Missed the 'more than one' section. but I suppose if I'm honest I've become more PR than anything else *sob* :(

Ah well, I hope to do some mapping over the summer to change that ;)

P.S. You missed out a 'concept artist' option. Or maybe you could change 'texturer' to '2D artist'

PR/Manager
...

Managing a team is something completely different from handling PR, plus managing is a far more important job. If you screw up PR, less people will play your mod. If you screw up managing your team, there will be no mod.

PR is the most important, why bother making a mod, if no one will play it

Name me some mods that had dedicated personell for each of those roles. It's just not worth splitting them in two.

"More than one".

Although I'm a web designer (and part PR if you can call it that), I consider myself a leech. I REALLY want to learn modelling/animation (seems like the world needs more animators :P) but I haven't really found the time.

Actually, I'm surprised how few are leeches. I figured it'd be about 70% leeches, but they're the minority...

usually, not always, modellers can do some animation to so animators are either in modeller or more than one.

A lot of the modellers can probably animate as well - or is that just not how it works?

I'm mainly a sound guy (even though I haven't done much lately due to excessive school work), but I can also model a little bit (especially vehicles)

and to Intense, takes time and patience to animate, and some knowlage of the tools your using, most people tend to neglect certain things or forget to lock a movement in a frame

with gmax and 3ds, its actually a lil like flash...

The lack of animators for modding is proving itself here...

Good poll, interesting results and great discussion.

I just want to say that I'm damn glad we met up with GraFix at the Freeplay event where we held our first public showing of Dystopia. An event which I'm proud to say Moddb helped 4 Team Dys members attend.

I also wanted to put forward another job discription for the list; general gopher / tech guy.
