    You get too many skilled diva's around that never listen to anything as well. I'd take 10 noobs that are willing to learn over a douche pro. I would say something like "You got real potential there, but you still need to work on your skills to get there, contact us few months from now with an updated portfolio". Given they actually show potential, that is.

    Don't be shy with the images! Interested to see where it goes. Working on a couple of maps. This one started as a map in Venice, but has now become a generic Italian town . First passing it atm by placing "modular" buildings everywhere which I will alter/change as time goes on. Need to break up all the lines on the next pass, make it less gamey, and lose as much of the cs_italy look as possible. First pic is of T spawn, second pic is part of the left route, and the third pic is a re-purposed modular building. The negative space at the ends of the map is where the 3d sky will start.

    aw yeah

    So, it's been 6 weeks now! You know what that means? That's right, Puddy proudly presents... "Fuck off, things." Fuck off, vest! I don't have to wear you anymore. Fuck off, drinkable and absolutely fucking disgusting medicine! I don't need you anymore. Fuck off, wounds on chest! You've been covered with new skin! I don't care if it's red as hell. This means that the ribcage will be fully healed in 2 weeks! You don't need the vest for the last stretch. Feelin' fine!

    What have you cooked recently

    This was my favorite thing I've cooked this year. The main thing is pureeing spinach and adding it to the rice dish. It's about 50% rice, 50% shallots,garlic, tomatoes and spinach.

    Just tell them which skills you think they need to get better at (texturing, modeling, composition, etc...) and to reapply in the future once they've improved in those areas. I've heard of cases of people with good potential but not good enough to be hired that after getting feedback in a job interview worked their asses off and eventually landed the very same job a year or so later. If the person gets angry, don't take feedback or never reply thanking you, well, then that's a sign that that person truly sucks and should never work at your company A nudge in the right direction is more effective than being completely honest when you want to help people. Most people get so overwhelmed when their expectations are not met (specially when they are inexperienced) that they get angry, frustrated and completely shut their minds to any useful information you might be able to share with them.

    I think what'd probably be best would be to give a very short response saying that unfortunately they haven't been chosen. That way, they have the closure of knowing they can forget about that prospect and they shouldn't re-apply until a much later time. I can't help but feel a little animosity when I encounter companies that I know ignored me at some point during the past. If I were in your shoes I'd also say something along the lines of "If you'd like to know more about what led to this decision we can provide that feedback upon request". That way, you avoid having to even think about what you're going to say to each person and it can literally just be a copy/paste response. And if they do ask for more info, you can go ahead and give them a little of your time to explain it properly.

    Can't begin to imagine how truly awful it must've been, hopefully none of us will ever have to experience anything like this, but thank you for sharing this. Also super impressed that you managed to put cs_agency together in the middle of all of this, massive respect to you mayne~~

    Oh like this you mean: Haven't worked out for 2 weeks cos of holidays. Today I ran again, it was horrible and I felt like dying. I also ran much slower than usual. I picked up weights as usual but noticed I had lost strenght and ended up dropping the weights on my foot. Please kill me. At least that's how I'm expecting it to go I guess that's why nobody's posting xD

    What is terrible about this, like a lot of the vocabulary used by corporations and management theories, is that it is concretely so good, you feel guilty and cynical saying otherwise. Even worse : if you disagree you are still forced to agree when they do stuff like that, because that's something you can't deny at the faces of the people they helped; and if you dare, it's easy as saying : "we acted and helped those people, what did you do ?". It works by guilt and morale authority, and at the same time demonstrate the almost magical power of big institutions. There's everything in it, 3:53 poor kids playing in the worst slums with an emotional piano on top of it, even a cute lonely puppy at 5:54. For you british guys here , when i was living in england ( maybe it is an anglosaxon thing i don't know ), i was shocked to see the number of charities you could have everywhere : in the newspapers, at the supermarket, or at some other private corporations etc. And there was an article i was reading about a charity in the official newspaper of the county about retired people too indigent to pay their heating. I was like : ok this is cool, at least they help old people in need here. But then i thought : mhh, i'm paying as much taxes as i do in France(not saying it's better in france), even a little more; and still the retirement age is at 68, plus you can still see 75 years old people pushing carts at the supermarket, or cleaning companies offices to make it at the end of the month. And some retired individuals can't pay their heating. Where is my money going ? do the state rely on charities to take care of the retired people who payed taxes all their life ? i mean a lot of schools and clinics are privatised. I was left very interrogated. The other thing was when i was doing my food shopping at waitrose as the foreigner i was, when paying the cashier they actually give you a small green plastic token with waitrose written on it, i asked what is for, and they explained me it has to be put in one of the three boxes at the exit of the supermarket to choose to which charity i wanted to give. Ok that sound super cool from waitrose i told myself, cancer, mhh or handicapped people i don't know. Then after some months as i forgot to go to these boxes, i realised i had a lot of those plastic tokens with waitrose written on it in my pockets, in my home, i found a lot of them in the park or the streets. And i thought to myself : they are actually pouring plastic everywhere in people environment and intimacy for advertisement use ? holyshit It's all a question of language, those modern PR and management theories slowly take away the words you need to name and think those institutions. They talk about projects, not exploitations; personal development, pleasure, and not workers efficiency; when you see a budget overseer you call it a producer, the supervisor of the exploitation's workers is called human resources. The words hierarchy and authority are banned and took away from their vocabulary. tl;dr but it's all but a terrible terrible thing to my eyes "google, don't be evil" etc

    Aight, 4 out 8 recovery weeks completed now! Half-time, bitches! I finally have the mental focus to play games and map again, at least a little bit each day. Oh, and I can sleep on my fucking side, which I haven't done since June 13th (first surgery). Normality will soon be mine! Thanks for the support guys, it was nice knowing mapcore was behind me when things were really shitty.

    Thanks for the kind words guys! Just to be clear, there's no looming danger hanging over me at this stage. Just my body getting used to things and medicines having some side effects. This is all just retrospective. And yeah, I'm hella-glad money wasn't an issue. I'd be homeless right now if that was the case. Anyway, I'll write up the nasty second half soon. That's the part which... well, broke me.

    Whys it a copy paste of everything from the Nostromo then Well, the USCSS Nostromo is a starfreighter, wikipedia tell us it's a "Lockmart CM-88B Bison M-Class starfreighter", that implies there's many previous models of it, and much likely many more models just like it as well. Much like real-life freighters we have in our world, they're all alike and copy of each others, because it's easier to manufacturer? ... that and it brings back some nostalgia of the film!

    Dude you know this already, but if it helps, continue typing, we're here, we'll read, we'll help... for what it's worth! Fortunately it's not a monetary issue, which is probably would have been if you would live somewhere else in the world so you can focus on getting better man! If there's something I firmly believe is that there's NOTHING in this life that is not manageable or even surpassed with perseverance and enough will to go on!

    No he didn't. "The story focuses on Ripleys daughter, Amanda, who, 15 years after last seeing her mother, is sent by Weyland Yutani to recover the flight recorder of the Nostromo, aboard a remote trading station". Here's the official website: http://www.alienisolation.com/en_us/

    @OrnateBaboon Not much will change in the layout. I am tweaking the curved area outside TSpawn, as well as other odd corridors I created in the original that I'm not fond of now. The biggest change will be the openness of some areas. Which will change the dynamics a bit. @Seldoon182 Thank you for the idea of putting mountains and a forest in the skybox

    so, FMPONE gave me an idea to re-theme de_season (abandoned greenhouse complex). I rushed the current version to get it out but it needs a face lift... here's a WIP beautiful corner of T Spawn thus far

    What have you cooked recently

    Not really ~ Yesterday, brunch. Baked-gratin eggs on top of a bread'n'butter and chopped tomato sauce bed. I baked a few minutes the bread before covering it with the sauce, which i prepared separately stir frying garlic and onions first to give it more taste. Quite yummy! The nice thing is it keeps warm for the time it takes me to eat through something like this.
