Been a while.

Did I miss much?

 
That all depends on how long "a while" has been.

A few new versions have been released, probably. Most of the discussion seems to have moved to discord. Not sure what else might be relevant to you.

****, son...

It's freaking Aldo. And it's this freaking Aldo, and not some copycat. Welcome back onboard, man. You will see many new faces you may not know, but I guess majority will still recognise you.

What did you miss? Well... ****loads of FSO releases, many campaigns, several MediaVPs interations, hundreds of missions produced by the community, millions of polygons... You missed like whole age of PBR or age of Blue Planet.

This place is still pretty much kicking.

Hello Mr. Username-inspirer~

The first FS mod I've ever tried was installing one of your ships ^^

Aldo! Welcome back, man. You know I still love your ships, I just made a modest improvement to the GVF Apis last year. (2019 was definitely last year, right?)

I... totally do not remember what that is.  Think it's been over a decade since I last even looked at 3ds max, or to put it in other terms -  (no specific order) two house moves, one marriage, two babies, one parental death, two redundancies (+1 survived), one PhD and a pandemic ago.  Busy times.

Not really back though, to be honest - just got bored one night in a spate of middle aged ennui and decided to post.

I was actually trying to find a screenshot of the old VBB when I figured I would check to see if this forum was still standing.

Been a while.

Did I miss much?

The ghoul that was wearing the face of Volition just died? I opened a fine bottle of red wine to toast the memory of a company that should have died a decade ago.

 
Oh heck! I guess that last Saint's Row really sealed the deal, huh? And/Or Embracer and all the other megacorps buying up studios suck at games.

In case you care, have some files from your long defunct mod returned to you :D
