Intro and questions

Post by gabbe »

Okay, hi im new here, my name is Gabriel, im from Norway and i love computers :-) (Not in the sexual term) Okay, this isn`t completely Off-topic but i`ll guess it fits here. I was searching around for free RTS games, but i didn`t expect to find game engines though, and i was a mere noob in blender when i took the first small steps into game development and coding. The first engine i found was the free RTS GLEST, the original team behind it was kinds gone and had left development. I stayed there for a long time and i started on some mods, and those mods are still under development. Then i searched some more and found this, SPRING, i was kinda glest familiar and i didn`t want to leave, and i think i never will. Well, then i saw these two opportunities, many might think that i had to choose one of the paths, (but greedy as i am 8) 8) ) I choose them both. So what i did was that since i was familiar with glest in the first place, i ghought i could make the mod first in glest, then use the already used models for Spring. Spring seems more advanced than glest, but i am kinda more familiar with glest and i got so many friends in the community over there. So my story there were basically i started my first topic with a mod, and that mod never got finished, rather, i never really started mod it. Then i looked at other peoples mods and i decided to make a real try for a heavy-quality mod, a Amazon mod. Not like the amazon river mod, but a amazon liek the female warriors mod. That is my serious mod and the one i am going to finish properly and i won`t release it until its done. That mod i planned to have numerous features for and i really started to get into it. then one day i started to look at the off-topic section of the forums, i found a religious debate. Since i am a strong atheist i had to debate this and i ended up in a ignorant diguission of lies. The community decided to shut down the debate and recently it got back up and running again, now with a little less disrespect. Okay, so back to something different, i met this awesome guy at GLEST.org and his name was Zoythrus, he seems to think very similar to my way and i even hadn`t to create topics cause i knew Zoy already had made them. okay now lets end the talk bout that, lets get back to the modding stuff. Well so the features the Amazons would have in my mind is like this:

Trading
Trading carts
Sea travel
Ages
Stone age, medieval, renaisance and modern.

I know spring is kinda optimized for futuristic themes but i like medieval so damn good! Okay so basically i want to know if it is possible.

My skill within 3d modeling is as follows:

Modeling: Decent
Texture: Horrible if not trees or game objects
Animation: Consider myself a pro and then it must be good huh
Coding: Clueless? XD I`ll learn when i get along right.

Advice for meh`?

welcome! its a shame you're just friends with your computer, but maybe romance will develop over time :mrgreen:

always nice to have new people arrive, especially ones with modelling knowledge. not sure exactly what's entailed with what you describe, the trading and carts... sea travel is certainly possible... ages could possibly be simulated with "morph" upgrading, but im sure there are other ways as well.

it's not immediately obvious when visiting our forum or the spring lobby server, but there are a few different medieval projects in progress, all of which i'm sure could use some help with modelling and content creation. contact carrepairer or maackey... also posting a screen or two of your work would certainly be nice to see

welcome again, i hope your stay is a good one!

That explains it - you need to be at least level 16 before you can unlock the enter key.

I'm sure you won't be 'kicked', it's just that the way you talk gives away your age.

Dont mind the trolls...
Your not gonna get any help here.
You can do all you want in spring.
Do not post here anymore instead go to the development tab above and educate yourself also join the #moddev channel in the multiplayer lobby and ask there for advice or help when you need it.

Be nice. He might be 14 but he's not trolling or being retarded...

Welcome and don't feed the trolls! If you need help I can help out... but I'm not really involved in spring anymore, so only general questions about developing a game (modeling, texturing, design, ect).

The great thing about the internet is that your age doesn't matter. As long as you make quality work and speak in a sensible manner, you'll be more respected than 25 years old idiots.

Wtf, why is everyone calling everyone a troll all the f*ckin' time?
It's always the same, 'troll' is an overused word who lost all of it's meaning by now.

QFT

I get called a troll when I'm trolling, I get called a troll when I'm just being me, I get called a troll when I'm trying to be nice.

I've had enough of this shit!
