BTW, do you happen to know Psionic? Popular for his ut2k4 mods.☺


Ah I just noticed this post - sorry. I do not know him, no.
You may yet meet him somewhere along the way, since the road to fruition for SolC should be long & plentiful! :D

Hi from chirpy

Postby cae2100 » 20 Dec 2014, 10:16

Well, I guess Ill finally introduce myself. Ive been here lurking since the beginning, following along with the progress of everything, and been excited about the project since day one.
I originally started playing descent when it first came out on the old PPC macintosh, which was back in 96 I believe, and still have the game cd but the mac wore out, then over the years, Ive collected other versions from other systems and such, so I have a decently large collection.

After playing the crap out of the first two descent games, I bought the third one, and dug an old computer that was junk out of the trash at the highschool next door so I could play it, but couldnt play it due to needing accelerated graphics, so over time, I learned how to modify it so that would play descent 3. I believe it was an old 233Mhz pentium, 128MB ram, 8GB harddrive, and a 16MB video card that someone gave me, and I loved that old thing, but it crashed nonstop, so after a while of fixing it so I could play my descent games on it, I got pretty good at it and eventually got into a career of computer repair.

Now I work in a field of robotics and programming, and mainly all of it is because of wanting to play the games, so having to learn how to build and fix what I needed to to play them. :P

So yea, alot of the directions Ive taken was bc I wanted to play my descent games, and I still do play it on almost a daily basis, but I use d1x-rebirth and d2x-rebirth on my raspberry pi and a large flatscreen to play it now. :P

PS. still love playing lvl 20 on D1 as robo anarchy, hard version, gotta love total mayhem :P

well, got started in programming by trying to create interfaces using vb6 and python for the computer to interface with microcontrollers over RF transmitters/recievers to control my little robots, but eventually upgraded to C++ and started doing stuff like robotic arms and such for various companies, like assembly line robots. The end robot originally was a 2-3 foot tall johnny 5 robot that I never really did finish, but is partly done, lol.

I eventually just took a break from that and went to build 3d printers and design software for them. Here's the first thing I printed on my large 3d printer, which one of them were shipped off to the world's largest descent collection. The files are there, you just print them out and you have it, but you need to upscale it a little bit to the size you wanted, it's a dinky little thing atm.

That's about it for now.

Hey all, Chris Shades here!!!!
I've actually BEEN a member to the forums, but took a hiatus - seeing the recent surge in activity for this mod however has inspired me. I mean business this time and will basically take the 'Ray Luna' approach to get something acceptable submitted to map for this thing. Just nabbed the UDK 2015 now! :D

I am new. Just learned about this game through D:U. I have waited decades for a return of Descent, and the KS of D:U just saddened me. So someone linked a video from October 2014 on youtube and I was so damn impressed. No other game apart from Star Citizen has gotten me so excited.

Quake Live and UT4 is my game of choice and I do web development by trade. I also am a hobbyist 3d modeller and have done a some architectural rendering stuff in UDK and have made maps for ut'99 and u2k4 and been toying with ue4. Maybe I can help with an asset or two ;) This game mechanics seem so similar to my beloved arena shooters, apart from the lack of boots on the ground. :D

Very excited and well done with all the work so far. Its just a shame that you lack publicity. You guys really deserve a larger following.

This is what I was saying about their publicity being a benefit to us as well. :D

Agreed! Any new 6DoF games are bound to lead gamers here at
one point or another! Yay! For freedom of speech & free press! ☺
