No one is shitting on the campaign. I'm sure that willy did good work on it.
I was going to leave it there and let you keep getting hammered on. But on second thought it's pretty obvious that aren't going anywhere, so here is your shot. I'm not gunna be rude, and this isn't meant to embarrass you or anything like that. This is what you are doing wrong as far as i can see it.
with your mod:
don't develop it in the open, we like surprises and anticipation. Give us teasers every now and again, but don't build the thing out here in the open, that's what your internal forum is for. ok?
This thread is for people to bitch and gripe about the missions in Pathways
This thread rubbed me wrong right off the bat. I am an experienced fredder and if Styxx had pulled this kind of shit at MT i would have left when we were on mission 5, which is where we were when i got there. It wouldn't have been as bad with me, because i am experienced, but you took someone who is new to fred and is trying his guts out. Yeah he's quirky and some of the things that he does really get on my nerves, but he is learning, and not bitching about those learning experiences. In short, if you are going to be a mod leader, then you have to take care of your people, if you don't, they'll leave you. When i say take care of i mean...listen to them, if you disagree with them that doesn't mean that they are stupid, it means that you don't agree. Styxx and I have some disagreements concerning MT, i leave it there, he is the mod leader, and a damned good one. Styxx and I have disagreements concerning the storyline in Origins, but that's my mod. I hear him out, and i think about it, and some things have been changed because i ended up thinking that he was right...other things i have kept...because i thought that i was right. If you are going to run a mod, then you have to give someone else's opinion weight equalling if not surpassing the weight that you give your own opinion. Know what i mean? Give them equal weight, and then decide.
If someone is offering criticism, don't take it like people are coming down on you or saying that you suck, or even that your work sucks. I fight in tournaments, and when i fight, the most fun fights that i have ever had were the ones where we were evenly matched. Where we walked in and fought each other harder than we fought anybody, cause we didn't know that we would walk through the fight, nor did we know going in that we had already lost. This place is kinda like that. We push each other to be better than we think we are. I learned that the very first time i offered to fred for someone. These people do extremely professional work, so when yours isn't up to par, and they say so, they are trying to force you to become a better modeller, texturer, or fredder because in the end, we all benefit most from pushing each other, and making each other the best that they can be at what they do.
Think about the things you do before you do them, or before you say them. I figure that since you aren't going to go away, someone needs to let you know where your short comings are. Yes you annoy me. All new guys annoy me, just like i annoyed the veterans when i was new.
Work on your chosen field, work damned hard on it, because if you hadn't noticed yet, some of these guys are pretty unforgiving. Work hardest on your role as a leader, because to be honest, that's where you need the most work.
again i ain't coming down on you, not being rude, letting you know what i see, and how you can best grow here and at HLP, and how best to serve your mod. Trust me...when you decide to make a mod you serve IT. Whatever whim it has, you have to make happen. You can't do that without a solid crew.
k? now straighten up. :nod:
the only reason i did this is in the open is because this thread exists. I'm pretty sure you can see hwere this road leads.
