I hear you. I have the same feeling when some idiot takes the time to write a novel, demanding 15 cents worth of miscalculated delivery fees to be transferred back to his account. Customer support at its finest.

Exclusive Video Review:

"...it brings back fond memories from the artistically gory sections of Quake 3 and Doom 3."

Bottom Line:

This is one of the best-looking and one of the creepiest maps I've ever seen for Goldsource.

Wow, thanks for the extensive review! :)

The only point I would argue is the world scale, the map had problems regarding scale in early versions, but I was under the impression that it came out well. Which parts do you feel too big / thick?

Also, working on model shadows atm, but it seems to double (!) the vis time with no end in sight - running for 12 straight hours now, and it seems to be stuck at 60%.

Anyway, thanks again for your nice review! :)

Exclusive Video Review:

"De_uprise feels like a classic Counter-Strike map, something that could easily be included in the official map pack."

Bottom Line:

In the end de_uprise is a fun oldschool map that has a few issues and needs more polish, but manages to be entertaining nontheless.

I planned to get my hands on it as soon as possible, but I'll only be able to play it on Sunday - have to make sure my gfs cat doesn't jump out from the third floor while her window gets changed. No laptop, shitty PC unable to run Source.

Rage.

I thought those "evolution" videos were awesome. Sure, it's a pain in the ass if you didn't record, or don't have previous versions of the given map on your rig, but still, those things were kick-ass.

If you are willing and able to make moar on a regular basis, those would demonstrate like nothing else how much effort you guys put into the mod - and how cool it's gonna be, when it comes out.

Exclusive Video Review:

"Toughworks stands as something totally original, and is true eye candy for GoldSource players."

Bottom Line:

Toughworks shows how an industrial setting is pulled off right. Less create, more Unreal Tournament.

Chin up, you'll surely manage to get a similar - or better - job, after all, you have real work experience in your field, which is what really matters. I'm struggling to find a decent job as a fresh graduate :/

"I think EsoTerrace needs more soul...and less crates."

There's nothing inherently wrong with EsoTerrace... Maybe I've been spoiled by the Mario themed maps and expected more from DocRock.

Superb texturing a lighting, great work! It has a slight Unreal Tournament Classic feel to it, reminds me of the dm maps Grinder and Pressure...with more detail and sexier shadows :)

On second thought, at the last evolution process (with the grunts), I kinda liked those lights at the top of the columns, had a nice mood to it. Sure, the vent shaft gave the area more detail, but they could still be there. Just a little nitpick, everything else is still mind-blowingly awesome ;)
Commented 10 years ago2012-05-13 06:32:58 UTC in journal: #7794 Comment #45597
Damn, that's some pro lighting...and the sexiest shadows I've seen in Goldsource oO

Great progress, can't wait to play it!

The different point of view was the real thing that made Opfor interesting. But demanding Shepard's character back in this day and age...another friggin' well-armored soldier guy as a protagonist would really make it stand out from the horde of Modern Warfields.

I only took a look at your playthrough, and the whole game looks pretty boring after the third eyeball shot.

Yeah, when it comes down to defining someone as "religious", I guess it's a matter of perspective. In my definition, someone can still call himself religious, if he agrees with modern scientifical facts. Denying them and stubbornly stating that God literally created the world in seven days out of nothing - that I would rather define as radical and narrow-minded.

But anyways, keep us posted! :)
Commented 10 years ago2012-03-27 11:50:21 UTC in journal: #7704 Comment #45557
Congrats!

Although if you want to present a full picture of the subject, it wouldn't hurt to read up on some authors from the field of sociology, anthropology, religious studies, etc. People like Max Weber, James George Frazer, Claude Lévi-Strauss, or as a light read, the outrageously funny The Year of Living Biblically by A. J. Jackobs, who also appeared in TED btw http://www.ted.com/talks/a_j_jacobs_year_of_living_biblically.html

Quite the opposite of your idea, as an agnostic, he tried to follow the rules of the Bible literally, and failed. He didn't join any religious group and remained skeptical, but developed a better understanding of religious people.

It would be quite interesting to see your Douglas Pillock, who's strongly fundamentalist and narrow-minded I presume, to meet some open-minded religious people at some point. Just a thought ;)

Yup, I've been playing it a few years ago for about 6 hours, but then got constantly low on health and died every 2 minutes. Enjoyed it though, but damn is it hard D:

@Striker: that's the difference between the new, shiny, quickly-assembled lenses and a 40-year-old Carl Zeiss or Leica lens. I once had a Carl Zeiss in my hands, made in the seventies, and was still perfectly clean on the inside. Those ol' Germans knew how to make lenses.

Btw, I have a micro 4/3, so I'm not a big pro in DSLRs, but isn't it possible to blow a bit of compressed air - that you normally use to clean the inside of your PC - onto the mirror, that would go up to the viewfinder? Maybe that would save you the dissembly.

Even though your regular sleeping periods seem awfully short, it could be that you're oversleeping - compared to your regular 2-4 hours of sleeping.

Oversleeping can lead you to feel more exhausted. But I'm being Captain Obvious here.

Pretty much what Archie & Daub said.

At your age, I was 172 cm tall and weighed 40 kgs, as opposed to your 150 cm and 30 kgs - so kinda the same ratio. Didn't stop me doing some martial arts, with which I gained an extra 15 kgs. So if not parkour, do some not-that-jaw-breaking martial art, like Aikido, or some kind of Karate, there are tons of info about them on the interwebs, just look it up. If that doesn't suit you, just look for any kind of sport you'd like. It even helps your metabolism, if you're not sitting at your rig all day ;)

So quit whining and do something about it.
