  1. @@Syko, you know you're a real downer sometimes You retired to study. The rest of us have been busy with other projects for the past year. There's nothing we can't pick right back up again.
  2. @zeƒilus That's a really intriguing method. I'll bring it to the attention of the team who aren't already present in this discussion. @dark_apprentice Sounds like a long conversation. I'd say sign up on the forums and I'll let you have a poke around and get a feel for what we have. It'll atleast give you some idea what you're in for with the development of a full mod.
  3. I feel watched There are a couple of different ideas in this thread concerning Jedi Betrayal. 1: We didn't officially retire the mod. I've been hoping someone other than me would pick it up and start producing work again. Perhaps you could be the guy for that job, Dark Apprentice? 1a: (edited) You're very welcome to join our team (as it is) at http://jedibetrayal.com/forum/index.php Your OP here and your HUD work is enough for me to fast-track your membership. Perhaps you could recruit new members, merge your story ideas with work we've done and make use of the team and work we have? 2:The Jedi Betrayal team has started a discussion about how we might go about releasing our assets. The thing is, if we are producing files aren't we back in business? 3:Sorry for the late reply Ashura - I'm never too far away. And yes I check the forums every day or two Reagan
  4. I imagine a lot of members out there taking an active interest in making time to do full reviews, I'd just like to see room made to promote that kind of activity. Anything that inspires participation will keep this hub relevant and active.
  5. Worst General ever. There isn't a lot to be said about bot waypoints for multiplayer, I do remember they seem to go in the reverse order you lay them down by default. That could have been incidental, but usually I'd find that you run through laying down the route and when you loaded it up with bots they'd get onto that course and immediately run counter to the direction you laid it out? Anyone else get that? Could be an issue with finding specific triggers, doors, jumps and so on?
  6. I do enjoy my own satirical interpretation of how you volunteer information like this. It reads to me like you're expecting someone to say "Oh I have got to try this!".
  7. http://espressobsess...ique/672124385/ Here is an example of a deviantart review that I find especially useful. Of course it's about a photo, and none of the content in the critique is very applicable to one of our authored files, though it is a shining example of how useful information is articulated. For you you tech guys: See the reviewers stars to the right? Those should translate more or less into terms we could use to describe a file posted here. If you were signed into dA as a member, you would be able to vote on whether or not this critique was fair with red and green yes or no buttons. As the author of the file, you would have the option to rate the critique highly, rate it as average or not display it at all if you found it offensive. Because of this functionality, writing reviews for dA submissions became a class of it's own, with members boasting their ability as reviewers and naturally some being more sought after than others for their talent at it. Other comments, even long ones that are reviews in their own right, never decreased in volume or lost any functionality to these new features.
  8. The suggestion foremost in my mind is that we all need to focus a little more on contributing more as a community in the areas of posting comments and topics and especially reviews with more narrative, or personal perspective, or critique or commentary. I'm evidently struggling with how to word my suggestion here myself, but the file reviews I have read have let me down so far. It is good to see people saying anything at all about new files, and there isn't anything wrong here, but these have all been comments, not reviews. My suggestion to the staff would be to set the example by writing at least a full paragraph that explores their experience with the file if they have used it, in the hopes that will encourage other members to follow that example. Perhaps also consider applying some highlighting feature to the review that gets the most likes, in the hopes that it will be used bring to the front the most useful member feedback? Perhaps the author of a file or topic could use the ratings stars to vote up what they feel is the most useful review? Deviantart.com has a model for user generated critiques that might be worth following here. Or some similar insightful tool to promote actual community commentary? It's a vague feeling in my mind at this point, but I wanted to put it out there. This isn't a 'fix this now' suggestion, we should just explore some methods of promoting or rewarding useful information. The like feature on this forum is an excellent step in this direction, and I've seen this feature requested so many times on other forums that I sincerely applaud the initiative to make it happen here. I'll also say this topic is open to other similar community (not strictly website/technical) related suggestions, since I didn't see anywhere to post this.
  9. I guess if Tatooine has a Dune Sea, that sea has a beach?
  10. Hi afiNity! Good to see you haven't strayed too far! @@MagSul: Just whatever you do, don't press the button clearly that is clearly labled...*
