Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
There's no need to go jumping the gun and calling this dead.

Resurgences in interest happen periodically so someone may come along and add more to it.

If anyone wants to consolidate what's been put together in the meantime go ahead, like I said before we can always change it to add more later. :nod:

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
How can we add more to it when we don't have a clear overview of it?

combine what we do have, post it and then people will start to work to fill mising spaces.

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
I liked the station more when it was in almost total chaos.  It is supposed to be a symbol of what the HLP community is, and that is disorder (in a positive way).  Somehow all the mods, bells, and whistles just come together, often in a way better than if someone orchestrates the entire thing.  I think we should revert the station back to its original chaos, and just let it grow as it wishes, much like the HLP community.  Return to the original pixel standard and try to keep to it, but if you have something so great it can't be kept to that standard, feel free to at least submit it, and someone can (make no promises) try to fit it in.  When you try to create too many standards, it kills creativity.  Creativity is the heart and soul of this community, exemplified by campaigns and mods, such as the SCP, Derelict, Inferno, Transcend, and many, many others.  If people were not free to create, then there would be no HLP.  The same should hold true for this station.  After all, we wouldn't want this station of HLP to die...would we?

Do not lock this forum.  As long as there are people willing to create, it should be open for all.  If we close ourselves to creativity now, we may never see the opportunities that arise down the road.

I say this because I feel this station is something which can further define HLP by its creativity. 

Maybe I am a radical, but this is what I feel.

This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union Address occurred during the same week.  This is an ironic juxtaposition of events--one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication, while the other involves a groundhog.

Yeah, I think the problems started when we tried to make this all neat and organized, having strict limits on the room sizes and so on. That defeats the whole point in my opinion. For what this is, a messy, jumbled up look is actually quite appropriate.

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
Mmm, the forum ate the update.  Which gives me an idea.

To summarize, I've taken updating this as my responsibility at Maeglamor's request, and will post updates every couple of days (so long as new stuff is submitted).  If you've got a room that isn't there and your nick isn't Trashman, please remind me of it and I'll get it in.  If your nick is Trashman, your rooms are still welcome but you will have to reformat them to fit into the standard heights (45, 112, or 179 pixels tall) before I stick them in because your rooms are complex enough that simple wall padding will not work.  I will not adjust them myself because I've explicitly stated that I will not modify others' work unless it is both very minor and only involves buffer space.

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
Another database glitch after the server maintainance. Should only be a short time before the Db is repaired so don't worry about it too much.
