Post OTP Headquarters
WARNING: As usual with this forum, all fans are welcome to read this thread but I made this topic here because it is directed at TNM Team Members. I must warn you it WILL contain spoilers regarding a project of mine that is TNM related.

Gentlemen,

I've said this before but I will say it again because it is the direct cause of this project: I am very honored by the fact that this mod has fans. I've never once in my life thought that one day I would ever get freaking fan mail from people. It just makes me feel great that all this has happened and people enjoy something I made, thus I'm willing to do what I can to offer these fine folks something more. I lurk these forums a lot and from time to time I see people requesting more content and I want to do just that with my specific skill set.

I plan on making an OTP Headquarters map as something along the lines of "Bonus Content" we see with official game releases. What this will be is a representation of the little in-joke we had during development of our headquarters when we make it big and become the premiere game developer of the world. THE WORLD. So, there will be an office for each team member and I extend an offer that each person who is part of TNM that wishes to create their own office can do so. This can be a drawing, a conversation we have describing your office or if you have mapping experience build one yourself and send it to me. Keep in mind if you take this route I may have to make changes to make it fit in the map. But for right now, go crazy and do whatever you want and we will see if I can work everything in. :)

I'm also thinking about making it an actual functioning map with a mission or two and enemies. I dunno, we will see how far this idea goes.

Chris The Cynic: If you're reading this, this is completely unrelated to what I PMed you about, so hush. :P

Unfortunately I'm far too busy to help in any way, but it's like a cool idea none the less.

That's okay Phasmatis, I know you have some mapping experience so I thought I would shoot you the offer as I promised. I will just create your area and maybe put something alluding to the idea that your avatar is out of the office.

EDIT: Even if you wanna shoot me a quick idea that would be fine, you don't need to commit too much, buddy.

Also, I hope you don't mind that my mental image of you will always be you triumphantly standing on that chair like in your easter egg shot in the mod. :lol:

Hey if you'd waited another 4 months you could've achieved a one-year anniversary necropost.

I only check the forums about once a year. Unlike someone who takes less than 24 hours to criticize. Yes I realize my replying indicates I would have to have checked the forum twice in one day breaking my annual visit rule.

Well, I didn't get 14100 posts on this board by lurking.

Jesus christ, Jonas. lol

Man honestly, I feel like you and I have the most love for TNM, you for it being the start of your awesome career, me because it was the very first and only big mod project I've ever been involved in. I only wish I got involved when I was in a better place in my life and could really appreciate the doors it could have opened for me. After mapping my skills became stagnant and I pretty much to this day am nothing more than a mapper with spunk. I actually started browsing around here because I wanted to submit my work to a project I hope will allow me to contribute my knowledge of BSP mapping when they reach that point on yet another classic game I love called Neocron. I sent the project head a lot of pictures of TNM maps I made along with some DXMP stuff I felt represented the theme really well.

I was reading a bunch of stuff you said to me during development and the type of encouragement you were giving me, if I wasn't so nieve back then I really wonder if I could have blossomed my skills and been working somewhere in the industry today.

If I never said it before, I'll say it now many years later and maybe too late: thanks for trying to lead me in the right direction and keeping me encouraged.
