CreatorOfPony has been doing some fantastic 3D modelling of EQG RR characters and some misc ones too!
Go check out his work if you get the chance! Its amazing!
Detail vs Fun or Detail is Fun???Some of you may have noticed i've been getting less and less detailed in the greeble/fidelity department.
I've found that trying to keep to a constant standard of detail is what was driving me away from modelling, I find creation fun but if I turn it into a chore I just cant do it. So I decided im going to settle on varying levels of detail based on how im feeling and how far I want to take a model.
An earthgate ship with a full interior and living amenities, sensor stations, bridge greebles and such is a once in a while project, It takes a lot of work and I dont like spreading work out over several days, more often than not I wind up putting projects on the back burner when I do that, only coming back to them years later. Where as im enamoured with the outcomes and fidelity, cramming that much into my usual "Get it done in the same session I started it" attitude, It is exhausting.
Making a sword of some wand or something for Rival Dynasties is lots of fun
Anybody else been on a battletech craze lately?So BATTLETECH came out lately and I tried it, personally I didnt like it, I'll hold out for Mercenaries 5. But its put me in a battletech universe mood, My friend and I have been doing a long standing Battletech RP campaign which has been alot of fun! Its nice to take a break from my own universe and play with another one.
For those who dont know what BATTLETECH or the Mechwarrior Mercenaries games are I suggest you look them up, decide for yourself. I only have one advice for you.
DO NOT LISTEN TO REVIEWS.
As of late official review companies like IGN and RPS are getting too lazy and dont even try to learn a game before spouting hooey about them so I say, Ignore the fluff, find the substance and make your own decision! so go check it out!
In the mean time I'll get to uploading some of the works that were exclusive to Patreon for a while so you can see the progress I made whilst I was away.
Im coming back to DA!Im going to be shutting down my Patreon soon because the expectation of content upkeep in return for profit just didnt feel good for me and it was causing art blocks and break-downs. From now on all my content will be posted to DA be it independant, EarthGate, Rival Dynasties or Sevastopol related.
GRIPPEN IOU (Discontinued)The Grippen International Operations Unit.
The Grippen unit is my gaming clan, for the most part we play casually together on games like Warthunder, Overwatch, Stellaris etc. My rules in Grippen include being nice to one another, none of that disrespectful modern slang, or excessive cussing, We also try to stay politically correct (this means Racism and other discriminatory language is unacceptable) My aim with Grippen is to build a group where politeness is intertwined with casual gaming and recreation online. A sort of haven away from the inconsiderate disrespect of most net users.
Im opening Grippen to new members now, some of the benefits of joining us include a trustworthy admin staff (enforced by yours truly) dependable moderators and a firm stand on keeping to the rules without suffering from "filing cabinet in the ass" syndrome. By joining us in Grippen you can be a part of our upstanding little community, enjoy games, make friends (or just mingle) with people who remember what
Patreon Update. New Goals. Games on the horizon.Heyo all.
I know most of you are probably sick of hearing about Patreon by now but please hear me out, if this next paragraph catches your eye, please consider me.
Earth Gate has been developing quietly for a while now and I think the universe is getting big enough and fleshed out enough that things need to start going up a level, I've just recently amended my goals on Patreon, Upon reaching my most realistic goal of $200 a month, I'll personally begin work on an Earth Gate adventure RPG game made on the RPG Maker software, I've worked with it before and I know what im doing. The extra income will help me pay professional pixel artists and sprite makers for high quality assets to make the game totally original, none of the usual stock assets you see in most RPG Maker games.
Okay if your still reading I guess your interested. Earth Gate's first RPG game will feature modern favorites like crafting mechanics, resource acquisition, open world gameplay and questing, im not just talking abou
Viral Competition.Im not sure how many of you here on DeviantArt are gamers.
But As usual, here's another post where I speak my mind about things.
Over the past few years since the onset of "Super-twitch-Shooter" games, Communities across the web have been degenerating into isolated, win-or-die fanaticals. Try as they might, developers have only two choices these days, Go with the flow and watch their game melt into another in a growing string of competitive cesspools.
What exactly am I talking about? I'll try to explain.
Video games were originally conceived as a fun way to pass the time and engage in friendly competition. Reference, the Arcade. Back in the day, You would compete for bragging rights and the high score shoulder to shoulder on arcade machines against people you would see frequently at the Arcade. There were certain things you had to adhere to in order to maintain the respect of spectators, Be a good sport, try to out wit your opponent a
An Ark is opening!Hello all. If your reading this then you know me and know what I do. But I'll explain anyway.
My name is Beth Taylor (Gwentari) and I work on EarthGate(AU). Earth Gate its self is a large scale Sci-Fi universe set in the near/distancing future. It entails mankind's story of becoming a member of the galactic community and how it survives the struggles of being a galactic player. Within Earth Gate you will find starships, planets, gadgets, people, corporations, Governments, Pirates, Criminals and everything in-between. Less than 10% of earth gate has actually been modeled and uploaded to my DeviantArt/Patreon. Its just that huge.
My long run goal with Earth Gate is to grow it into the next big sci-fi universe to rival Star Trek, Stargate or even the media giant StarWars. Now Earth Gate wouldnt be what it is without the help of some very close friends of mine, My friend from arizona who is my primary roleplayer (ill explain that in a moment) and my Boyfriend from England who is my p
ProfitFollowing on from my little rant in my previous journal entry, I'd like to voice some legitimate concerns.
I know im not the only person who has noticed this by now, Corporations are becoming and have been becoming excessively greedy for a long time. Its not enough that they make a profit on their products to help them expand, they need more, more income, more profit, more return, greed is consuming our businesses. Its not enough for them to be able to simply do the job they set out to do.
Companies seem unable to accept that profits can be "acceptable", it seems as though everybody who sits down at a board meeting will never be happy unless their profits are greater than the last time they sat down at the table. (notice the pattern here?) I understand some of the personal gains from being at the head of an increasingly wealthy company, You can pay your bills without care, you can get the latest car, enjoy fine comforts, treat your families to first class living, take the fear failure
Sketch-upedMy pro-trial ran out on sketchup, the one you get when you download a new copy of sketchup, I got a trial again since I downloaded it on my new computer, You may have noticed the sharp increase in fidelity of less angular models such as my star trek stuff. I owe this new fidelity to a selection of tools called "Solid Tools" They opened many new doors for me in sketchup and now that my trial ran out I nolonger have them. I was very offended and disappointed to learn that sketchup charges more than £500 for a single license to use Pro. I also cannot seem to get a clear read on their licence either, I cannot tell if I will need to renew it frequently, if its lifetime or if its infrequent renewal. But never the less, It took me quite some time to get enough money for a new computer now I must consider a potentially repeating £500 a year, every couple of years, For somebody living on benefits that is nightmare talk.
So for now, I cannot use sketchup because I refuse to back-pedal
