Boo! My comments section stopped working a bit. For some reason it wont let you change the page. Well, I'm too busy on other things right now, so it will have to never get fixed for a while or long time.
For uni this year we get to do a self propelled project. For a full year. So basically i'm planning to do SOME sort of mod, probably for UT but hopefully for Pariah when it comes out, provided the two are fairly interoperable.
A couple of friends are helping out so it will probably be great and we will probably work really hard on it. Stay posted because more info will come when we work out precisely what we will be making.
In other news, my texture artist for Instagib : Source is getting off his ass and starting to finish up some stuff, so maybe a release for that is looking like happening some time soon again.
I had some random disease for a while now, annoyingly enough nobody can tell me what it was. Some sort of 'serious viral infection' thats 'not something that can cause kidney damage' and 'not glandular fever' but something inbetween.
So consequently although i really wanted to get something interesting finished before uni starts i havent had time.. Unless i can pull getting better and motivation out of my ass in the next 24 hours.
Ive just kinda finished moving house. Theres a few things still to do here and there but it's finally all coming to a close.
The good news is that now I may begin to have spare time again which means, you guessed it, more random projects and stuff coming along.
I'm also living with my main texture artist now so perhaps something on those outstanding HL2 and Doom3 mods will finally get done soon, with enough pestering.
As you can see, I added a guestbook type thing in just for the hell of it. Now it's easier to contact me, because I'll periodically be checking those comments to see what people are saying.
It's available on all the main pages, so you can view it no matter where you are. Feel free to post suggestions for mod updates and stuff like that in there too.
I just took the site through a major overhaul and killed off a lot of old and/or poor content.
This news page is now linked in the menu and I've cut out the 'random' section as it really had no use. Almost everything is now indexed under 'projects' with subpages for different categories of things. The projects submenu is fairly dodgy at the moment and I should rectify that later on in the week. My university subsection remains the same.
I also updated my commercial work with some proper screenshots of the stuff I've done so that anyone who wants a website or an ad or whatever can take a proper look at what I'm capable of.
Just thought i should post that i made a small instagib mod for Liero Xtreme.
2D instagib is madness! Head on over to my projects page if you want to download it.
It's bizzare, but suddenly i'm getting thousands and thousands of hits to this small crappy java applet i made ages ago (a modification on another's work, i might add). I think it got posted on some German dumping ground for random internet links, and so suddenly the whole reader base of that site is coming here.
I just found that mildly amusing.
In other news, i bought a copy of Sacred (the rpg) and have been playing that way too much to be doing anything interesting or productive. yey!
A great game to play with your friends:
- The object of The Game is to forget that you are playing The Game.
- If someone remembers that they are playing The Game, they lose.
- If you lose, you must tell everyone around you that you remembered that you are playing The Game, and tell them that they are now playing The Game.
- There is a 20 minute reset time after this so that everyone can forget about it, then The Game continues as normal.
Hi everyone who reads this (that's really another way of saying nobody).. Ive finally got around to doing a proper news thing for this site with all the goodness of XML DATABASING and EASY UPDATING and DYNAMIC PAGINATION, which means that maybe I will write more news items here from now on.
That's actually a dumb thing to say, come to think of it, because there was nothing here before. Oh well.
Moving on, I seem to be getting a heap more hits lately (like 50 times a heap more) so thanks to everyone who has been doing that.
Probably due in part to me being proactive about the mods I'm making - Excessive TV was on the planetTribes main page a while back and I think my FlatOut mod made it onto the official forums.
Its awesome to put more stuff out there and have it recognised, so I'll keep doing that.
