thanks for the criticism.
not needed at all. i mentioned on my first post that i have all of the ideas and they are written down, i could explain and communicate everything in this project. the game project that i worked on before was actually the first version of THIS game project that i am trying to start up now.
we had a wiki that we made for creating the game and sharing ideas, we had an SVN up for sharing files, and i’m sure both of them are still up i just need to get the address. (it was a very obscure address that was lost with my laptop, need to dredge it out of my email sometime) but anyway, i had about four people working on the project with me.
we had pretty much all of the game concepts worked out, including AI behaviours and stuff, we were working on models for all of the different units and buildings, but every programmer that we encountered was lazy and didnt ever produce any actual code… my friend still has all of the game files, models, concept art, and wiki page address. i need to get in touch with him. (another thing to get out of my email)
anyway, when i suggested this project on my first post, i let people know that my laptop was stolen and that i am trying to ORGANIZE a project… and i also let it be known that i really have very little to show as far as visual examples… i’m not trying to impress anyone with examples of my work, i’m trying to get people who are familiar with panda3d who would like to help out with this.
i can make 3D models, (better than the pictures above) and i understand programming concepts enough to be able to create pseudocode at least. i can also do uv maps and texturing for 3d models. i have experience with photoshop and 3ds max, and other than that i have a VERY CLEAR VISION of this project and can communicate it effectively.
as far as me not having any examples…
i know this. and i mentioned that i dont have many examples in my first post, and i mentioned the reasons for this.
if people want to criticize me for something i clearly explained, i understand the sentiment but i dont know what good it will do.
the reason being, i already know that it helps to have examples of previous work, and i know that i was lacking them. again, both of those points were fully explained from the beginning.
i’ll try to get some concept art up soon, if anybody is serious about joining this project…
trust me, i can understand why that specific criticism would arise, because i’m sure you have enough people coming through the forum saying “hey, i got a project idea but no experience, who wants to help”
i’m not one of those people. please dont mistake me for one.
p.s. thomas, i understand that you have alot of experience with python and panda3d, i respect your level of knowledge with them and your interaction on the forum. just know that i wrote this up more as a kneejerk to criticism, and in retrospect i’d just like to say that i AGREE with BOTH of the people who gave criticisim, and that i will show work in the future as this project progresses and as i recover files from the previous manifestation of this project.
