    Hello, there! I am the High Paladin, here to apply for Designing, Writing, and Visuals! If you want to see some of my work, feel free to look here:

    Writing/Visuals:

    The writing in this link is the post which is completely original lore of the planet Kaldeon and some of the surrounding areas. It's something I came up with on-the-fly when I decided to post up my texture pack for Minecraft.
    Now the visuals would be the Texture pack itself. I'm currently working on a 32x HD texture pack (Which I think looks much better).

    http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/808389-16x100-kaldeonv13/page__p__10441987__fromsearch__1#entry10441987

    If you want to see other examples of writing, I have several things I can show. ;D

    Now, for the designing.
    The following images are older ones, back when Maya was free and I was using it. I'm now using Blender.

    Spoiler:





    Oh, I also have copies of the Original, X, Zero, ZX, and Legends Source Books. Very Happy

    With Designing we mean Level/Overworld/Ruin and Gameplay Design.

    With Visuals we meant both 2D and 3D Design. (So your sword could be used as an example in your portfolio) We are looking for texture design, but I'm not sure how Minecraft textures can be used as a good example when it comes to proving your skills.

    Would you be so kind as to give us more appropriate and direct examples of your skills and talents?

    Ah, alright. I guess I'm applying for Visuals and writing, then. Very Happy
    On the Visuals side of things, I discovered that my old Maya models won't work in Blender. (I thought they were supposed to. o.O) And that I have no idea how to texture in Blender.

    I made a new model to try and texture, it was made with F-Zero in mind. It looks like this untextured:

    http://i.imgur.com/nlzll.png
    http://i.imgur.com/PCwu2.png

    I figured out how to load textures to Blender, but not how to put them on the model. x.x

    So I'm good on the modeling part, and the 2D making, but not the putting them together part.

    Well, Paladin, this project is geared to be as much of a learning experience as it is a serious attempt at a game so don't worry too much. And you've certainly showed a lot more experience than some. I'd love to have you on the team.

    It's not my final call, of course, but I'm pretty sure you'll get in, just stay active when you do.

    The most important I recommend to you is to always be active with us and ready to contribute to our long-term goals on the Project. Being able to do texture design puts you in a good position within the 2D and 3D departments, as we'll need to texture-map our models and environments within the Unity engine and that takes people! You have a good deal of experience with producing assets already, and the developers we need the most now are those that can produce concepts and work with the various departments to help finalize what will be produced for use in-game.

    I hate to make this comment, but that F-Zero inspired model looks like you took a basic UV sphere and modified it. I would like to see a more advanced model, preferably made almost from scratch, before I'd say you were "good on the modelling part." Your Maya models look a bit better, though. If I say 'topology' or 'extrude', would you know what I meant?

    Again, I didn't want to make this comment, but it's a concern I had.

    Not that I know enough modeling terminology to corroborate his claims on how it was modeled, but it didn't look very F-Zero-inspired to begin with, resembling some sleek starship hull more than an angular, aerodynamic hockey puck with a cockpit.

    That's basically what that is. I'm using that as a base while I make other parts around it, so it keeps the same general shape.

    PixelSprite wrote:I would like to see a more advanced model, preferably made almost from scratch, before I'd say you were "good on the modelling part." Your Maya models look a bit better, though.

    When you say 'almost made from scratch', do you mean no basing it off of anything else, or using more then one mesh?

    PixelSprite wrote:If I say 'topology' or 'extrude', would you know what I meant?

    Nope. xD I'm still new to Blender, and I never really explored Maya that much. Though I think I've seen the 'Extrude' thing around, but never checked to see what it does.

    PixelSprite wrote:Again, I didn't want to make this comment, but it's a concern I had.

    Fully understandable. You want the best (Or close enough). If I fail to meet the requirements, I'll simply get better and come right on back. >Very Happy

    F-Zero-inspired meaning a floating futuristic ship used for racing. :p
    F-Zero ships tend to be flatter, and their details more spread out then hunched together.


    If you ever want an example of something, just ask. I might ask about specifics before starting anything, though. don't wanna waste anyone's time. :3

    I know what an F-Zero ship looks like, and I was joking about the average appearance of an F-Zero vessel in that last statement. Anyhow, it's good to know you're active with these software suites.

    I should clarify. First, your second Blender picture doesn't seem to work, so I'm only going by the first one. By almost from scratch I mean more than simple manipulations of primitives (cube, sphere, tube, etc...) in edit mode, such as at least being able to add vertices. That's why I mentioned extrude, it's 'e' in edit mode, by the way. Keeping things in one mesh isn't that important (things can be more organized if you don't, in fact).

    Thank you for understanding.

    I looked around to see how I could add vertices, but couldn't find it. D: I did however play with Extrude Individual on a simple cube:

    Spoiler:
    Sides
    Top/Bottom

    EDIT: I was looking around the forums, seeing what interested me, when I saw something about Blender Cookie, so I looked it up and found it was for the current version of Blender. Yay!

    That's the reason I didn't know much. All the tutorials I found were for older versions, where things weren't in the same place and stuff. I'mma watch these vids 'n' come back later. Very Happy

    EDIT2: Watched 6 of the 7 'getting started' vids. (Don't think I need to know how to download and install it. ;P) Going to bed now and watching more tomorrow.

    Sorry if this was answered already, I'm really tired and I really don't feel like reading 11 pages but...

    When you say Audio do you mean Voice Acting under that? or Music?

    I'm currently majoring in Information Technology (Not sure how that helps) but I know C++ and HTML. I don't know enough c++ to write anything crazy from scratch but i can piece together blocks of code and i understand how they work. I have done some simple graphic design (can post links if you wish) and am a very avid IRC user. Idk if you guys have a IRC server or chan, but if not i would be more than happy to make one for the project. I guess what i'm trying to say is I'm not a master in anything just another willing and able person. Excited

    Well, we have what's called a Multi-tasking Developer, which is a developer that does a little bit of everything and just hops around and makes sure things are running smoothly. We don't have many active, atm, and I'm sure Leonel could use the help if you want to apply for that.

    Also, we do have an IRC channel already, it's mostly just used for weekly meetings, but we're hoping it gets more frequent use in the future.

    We could really use programmers with experience in the Boo language, a Unity 3D-centric platform based off of Python. Our programming team is the weakest team working on the project, and we could use as many dedicated players in that field as possible.

    Looked at Boo and it seems like a fairly simple language. Once i get Unity installed i will start to study and play with it more. Anyone know of any Boo references or tutorials besides unity's website?

    I'm not too versed with programmer's references and guides at all, but there may be something in the O'Reilly catalogue worth taking a look at. If not, then the Unity 3D website might have some resources as well.

    Wait a sec. Boo? I thought we'd decided to use C#. I can't remember the exact spot, but I posted links to a few Unity tutorials that were about C#. (Unity Cookie may use Boo, though. I haven't checked.)

    We'll probably being using both, but you're right: C# looks like the best language to use for customizing the engine to our needs.

    I believe Goldbott made some tutorial threads way back when we actually had active programmers, that'd be a good place to start:

    http://projectlegends.aeroforums.com/t189-unity-3d-c-basics

    http://projectlegends.aeroforums.com/t73-developing-games-with-unity3d

    Also, welcome officially to the team, Ghost.

    Be free to feel excited. I've been very excited about making this for a long time, and the more active participants we have, the more we can all get done. I hope you enjoy this just as much as me and the rest of the team do!

    Hey everyone,
    Jes here or Tron (either one works for me, heh.)

    Here are some examples of my art: Dat art thread

    I'm better at character art than backgrounds, so :>

    also- I'm thinking of auditioning for voice work too! I hope to work with you guys Very Happy
