Hi, i am Jethro, a long time lurker/modder/3D modeler on this board, although i used another nick name back then.
I used to be very active in regards to modding and freding the game (FSO, Diaspora and B5), mostly for personal enjoyment.
Round about 3-4 years ago, i lost interest in modding/ space sims, so i left everything behind and focused on RL stuff and World of Warships as my go-to game.
A couple of weeks ago, i started streaming Wargaming titles, mostly WoWS, but also WoT and WoWP.
While i enjoy these games, it can get a bit...monotonous...sometimes, so i decided to add other games to my list, like Mechwarrior Online, Cold Waters.
During my streams, i play various music and when the BSG playlist started playing, old memories surfaced.
So, i started watching BSG again (for the umpteenth billion time) and decided to stream Diaspora, FSO and maybe even the Blue Planet games over the upcoming holidays.
TBH, i haven't kept tabs on HLP ( i used to 'live' here), so i'm kinda sad to see that the board ain't longer as active as it once was.
And that long awaited Projects, went into Hibernation...
And while i won't get back into modelling/ modding due to RL and the fact that i don't have 3DS Max anymore, i hope i can contribute in another way: by streaming the games.
Cause gaminng wise, i had the best years here on HLP and i hope to revive the old 'feeling'...and in the process maybe, just maybe
, interrest one or two of my viewers for the awesome games created here.
As mentioned above, i only recently started streaming, so i don't have many viewers yet, but i'm working on it.
With the recent release of the MediaVPs, i consider FSO next to Diaspora, to be my 'top priority' as a non-Wargaming title.
And instead of spamming each sub forum with the same questions, i'll just ask here:
1. Do all the Standalone games (Diaspora, BP: WiH, BP: WiH2, Babylon 5, and the creepy one with the Stealth ship- Ascendant(?)...forgot the Name...
) work fine with the current nightlies?
2. Are shadow maps now fully integrated or do i need special builds?
3. When will FotG will be released? As a long timer here, i guess i knopw the answer already…
4. When will Diaspora R2 come out? …see above...
And i see the board kept it's air tight anti bot defenses...
