    Insta, after the forum upgrade your Magnaaaaarblabla-spam doesn't line up with the other text anymore.
    Just FYI, might want to look into that, annoying as hell to look at....

    been playing this a little and it's quite enjoyable but the lack of quick-saving is a real problem, you can't experiment at all, and you end up doing the same boring stuff dozens of times trying to figure out the best way to approach something.
    the costume/disguise stuff isn't a big deal and actually works pretty well in my opinion - the biggest issue is the instinct, it doesn't seem to work sometimes (when trying to blend in), and you end up in the 2spooky mode and suddenly everybody is hostile and the SWAT are on their way. but maybe i just need to practice a little bit more...

    glacier 2 is an interesting engine, i have everything maxed out and it doesn't look OMG JAW DROPPING, but everything is quite high-res, and there's some nice attention to detail, but there's a few things like the lens flares that simply look ridiculous when you can't see 47's head because of the giant flares bouncing off his bald dome.

    overall though it's enjoyable, nice to look at, feels very free and open without being completely ridiculous and confusing, the crowds are great, the visuals are actually AAA, the engine runs smoothly and there's no annoying bugs or awkward UI annoyances. It's very polished, very good. So far I've played a couple of hours and can't give it a "score" but it's definitely leaning towards a 90+

    Good work IO!

    I don't know who if anyone would remember me seeing as I haven't logged in since half a decade ago... But I'm more than a little impressed this thread from 2004 is still going. Nice to see all of you people I remember still have this community going.

    28 Weeks Later. Always heard this movie sucked ass but it's in fact one of the best zombie movies I have ever seen. Pretty different and unusual take on the theme

    Yep, they are just replacing a violent and oppressive system with an even worse one imo. One example that comes to mind is Gaddafhi. He was demonized by the western media but if you look for facts he wasn't all that bad. Libyan women enjoyed some of the highest degrees of freedom among arab nations and Libya had also one of the highest HDI in Africa (higher than Brazil even lol). I don't think those savages who anally raped Gaddafhi before beating him to death are going to build a better country.

    I don't really know what the situation is in Syria but I don't think we should just jump on the bandwagon and hail these rebels as freedom fighters:

    There are three topics impossible to be discussed in a rational way: Politics, Religion and Soap Operas.

    Can't we just have this kind of discussions in off-topic? As long as we keep it civil I don't see any problem.

    I found so many unfished maps on my FTP! I think I only complete 5% of what I start lol. I'm glad I changed that habit now

    DM_Avon: HL2DM map





    Architecture test, this had no real gameplay:


    Another map, the first map I worked on with 100% custom textures and models:



    INS_Abdallah (first version)






    Another INS map. This was my first experience with Hammer & Source engine. I abandoned it because the map was a mess and performance was horrible


    First tests with modular units in Unreal 3. These two eventually evolved into my Zest Scene:



    Fight Club bar, for a contest @ Game-artist.net. I still plan to finish this one because i lvoe the mood so much. It can also take advantage of UDK's new features which is awesome. I didn't finish this one because I was crunching heavy at Ubi at the time and was suffering from strong back pains due the shitty chair I had at the office. I complained for months about the chair but they only got me a new one after I threatened to walk away and stay home lmao

    Man I'm really digging this new theme, very easy to read and browse, awesome shit!

    My only gripe with the current skin is the top banner which looks pretty large and distracting, I made a quick mockup of how I think it could looK squashed down a little:
