It has been a very long time since I stepped foot in these forums, and it's for a pretty good reason that I do now, I think.
I don't know how many of you are still here from 2003/2004 but if any of you are, I wanted to thank you.
I was only 15 at the time, and didn't know what I wanted to do, just that I loved EV. This led to me dabbling with 3D software, getting my hands into the resource forks and finding out what made the game tick.
Fast forward to now, after a lot of ups and downs, and I've just finished a Bachelor of Games design degree, spent the past few years honing my 3D skills around other assignments, and am now working in the industry as a 3D Artist. Funnily enough, making aircraft atm. Though I've also worked at another studio making swords, shields, helmets and, of course, crates! I deal with code, with audio and primarily modelling. All thanks to EV.
I just want to say a big thanks to the community here for helping back then; for being so helpful and patient and nurturing a young kids love of space and video games into a career. And a massive thanks to the actual devs of EV for making such a fantastic game that sparked a now lifelong obsession.
For those who weren't around then, but are getting into it now. Keep it up! Keep experimenting with code, with modelling. Keep making things!
Happy to answer questions, if any of you have any!
