Haha well good luck with the exams, remember all the good work will be worth it! Life is so much better after school you have something to look forward to
The map I'm making is a bit boring in concept and not very original, I'm really making it for LAN-ing with friends. It's called Undead Survival (see? very original ), 8 players are human defenders and defend a town from endless waves of zombie attacks. 4 players are special zombie types that respawn when killed, and try to kill the 8 defenders. Whenever a defender is killed, they become a special zombie as well, so it just snowballs against the defenders until they're all eventually dead. Meh, it's just fun to code abilities again
I'm doing well, I've just lost all my drive and motivation to map which is why I'm not around as much I just can't sit down and map for hours on end like I used to, these days I get bored of doing something like terraining or coding and then just stop altogether. Any tips on how to stay motivated?
I started making websites about 5 years ago, but it is only recently that I have fully taken it seriously. I would say about 2-3 years of serious web design and development and then it has only been about 3 months that I have gone fully professional.
I keep trying to start an indie game (I love them), but I never seem to have enough time to keep it going I am a fan of Flash, even though there are plenty of haters for it. I mostly like it for the reason you mentioned: the graphics are a lot simpler to do than with most things. Although, if you want to do desktop applications, you should have a look at Adobe AIR. The applications are made in exactly the same way (ActionScript3), but they have extended functionality.
I personally am finishing off a web design project at the moment (which the client is being very picky with) and then I'm fancying playing some Starcraft, or equally entertaining games
Haha, I remember taking a taxi in Beijing last year and the cabbie lectured me about how safe China is compared to America, then he made a gun with his fingers and pretended to shoot in the air while making "pew pew" sounds
Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
