    So psyched for Forrest and the team to have managed this very successful Kickstarter campaign. The team is made of the nicest most talented devs I've seen in a very long time, and it was my first time backing a kickstarter. Can't wait for the game

    Still trying to keep this list updated, but I noticed a lot of folks aren't on there. Just moved Seir and Vivi to Treyarch and Overkill, noticed Treyarch was missing Werner....

    Help me out guys, if your name isn't on it and should, or is in the wrong place, let me know by PM

    Those who know me know I love history and genealogy, and I just got to thinking that I've been a member of Mapcore for 8 1/2 years now, dating back to my first modding days. In internet years, it's a century.... I was curious if you guys would like to share your story that got you here on Mapcore?
     
    Mine is pretty straightforward. I had joined the crew of beta testers from CoJ (Crowbars of Justice) for Day of Defeat Source back in April of 2005 with members like insta and skdr. That gave us all a huge advantage over every other modder in that we could start mapping for the game before it even came out. Back then, the Source SDK was barely running in Steam, and lots of tinkering with the FGD file later, I was learning 3D and Source when I wasn't playtesting the game. It was legendary modder Waldo, of the original DoD team who suggested that I join Mapcore when my first map, a piece of crap by all measuring standards, finally hit the shelves in Feb. 2006. That piece of crap, along with a convincing test, allowed me to join the industry two weeks later at Ubisoft Montpellier. Barely one map under my belt, and I had Mapcore to thank for partly landing me a job. It's been a lot of fun since then seeing all the great talent I was dreaming of becoming as good as all join the industry one by one.

    Love ya tho Pete (in a bro kinda way)! Glad to have you around here
     
    So I came along in around 2006 when I first started getting into Source mapping. I spent about a month trying to get my account verified, and everyone was really unhelpful so cheers for that!
     
    I remember porting a load of NS1 assets into HL2 and using PhilipK's textures to make some shitty mockups of what NS2 could look like.. It was one of the first things I posted up here.

    It scares the shit out of me to think how long it's been since the early days.
     
    I first came across MapCore in 2000, at which point it had recently evolved from Anarchy. I was a semi-regular idler in the IRC channel, which incidentally I still have all my logs of (behind about 50 padlocked doors).
     
    Funnily enough, I was attracted because some people from MapCore (at least, Taylor) and a Day of Defeat mapping group called iNvasionWorks were having some kind of weird conflict that spilled into the official DoD forums (I was very involved with the DoD community). Klein was part of that mapping group, which is likely how he ended up here too.
     
    From then on I pretty much just made MapCore my 'home' on the internet. To this day I still idle in the IRC channel whenever I'm on my PC, and I was involved with this iteration of the forums since it was first put up in 2003 by (primarily) Mike, Mojo, and Zaphod. I just did my bit as a mod for a while, then as those guys wanted to drift away and focus on other things I took the reigns due to me having years of experience running communities — plus web development and hosting is my career.
     
    And since then I think we've all been living happily ever after! Slowly but surely growing until we finally have enough money to buy an island and all live there in mapping nirvana.

    eheh, awesome thread.
     
    I started lurking at around 2002 or so, Mapcore was more like "SourceEngineCore" at the time, so I only really created an account in 2006 because that's sorta like the tipping point where people here stopped being Source aficionados and people started posting stuff with other engines, 3d art and branching out a bit more and I started to gain more interest in this community. 
     
    I started filling EOT with threads of old stuff everyone already saw, pissing and trolling everyone out and having a laugh. lmao 
     
    But yeah man... here we are in late 2014 and MapCore is pretty much my home on the internet, couldn't live without you homos

    Mazy is like the old Grandad of Mapcore now. Sitting in his swivel rocking chair that somehow also has wheels, reminiscing about bsp and vis. "Back in my day you could make a single player mod over a weekend! Now it takes years to make anything! All this thong mapping and bump nipples is just a load of rubbish that kids love to fawn over. I could load up Photoshop 6 back then and make a texture set in 5 minutes for the map! Now I need 20 different programs and 70 different methods just to make a chair!"
     
    Annnyyyyyyyyway.
     
    I joined 10 years ago ...holy crap! after finding the Rust forums a bit dull and upon seeing so many "big name" Half-Life community mappers on here I was like I need dis. Then this HP guy joined and ruined it for everyone
