PostSubject: Reporting In   Wed Dec 10, 2014 12:18 am

So I've been bumping around the internet for a while, found this place, and really like it. Figured I should at least introduce myself.

I used to be a somewhat big member of Symthic.com, a site that does a lot of statistics and analysis for Battlefield (which I got into in December 2011), but after a year or so good people left, bad people arrived, and a lot of immaturity and drama happened, and through several misunderstandings and shady dealings, I was kicked out, despite my total cooperation and composure throughout it all (you could be polite and reasonable with someone, but they'd spit in your face and be all childish regardless--that's how bad it got). In fact, they robbed me of $10, but whatever. It's a very long story, longer than the one above. But at that point, I was basically staying there to spite the people that wanted me gone, so it wasn't too much of a big deal. Though it did leave me without a home, so to speak.

Then I tried to become a member of ReadyUpLive, but it wasn't very active when I joined, and your identity is very limited there unless you're a premium member. That is, you can't have a custom avatar, signatures were limited, and other features. I didn't have a job at the time, so I couldn't pay for it, and eventually I lost interest between the inactivity and everything. Might be more active now with the Xbox One and Master Chief Collection, but I'm uncertain.

After a while of boredom I decided to check out reddit, a place I previously did not understand in the slightest and had no desire to do so, but I actually like it a lot. Problem is that it feels pretty cluttered and not too organized, at least for me.

Then I drifted to a couple of places. XboxCulture was a site advertised on Reddit, and as an avid Xbox fan, I thought it would be perfect. Problem is, the site is incredibly nascent, so not much activity was really going on. A while later, I tried 343industries.org, which is nice, but just not a lot of discussion going on that I'm interested in.

This looks much nicer. Lots of custom content, a broader gaming focus, and a nice community it seems. It's also very mod-oriented, with mods based on other games, which is something I really love. There's been many times when I've wanted a particular item in Fallout or Skyrim, but it doesn't exist because it's from another game and Nexus doesn't want to run it. Glad to see this place is talented and filling that gap!

I've actually authored a few mods myself. Just retextures, though, nothing big. Here's what I've made

NCR Black Death Armor
NCR Veteran Ranger Lense Retexture
Crimson Flame Retexture

I've tried modelling, but... it just doesn't work for me. My frustration on that here.

Hope to learn more and be a productive member, though!

Thanks for reading.

Welcome to the Forum, Locke! My brother tried joining RUL too, the leader of it (Greenskull, I think) was a total butt to him, and had an ego the size of a Halo Ring. You won't find that hear though, this place is a really nice place with a good community and good admins.

Welcome, and awesome reskins too! You'll fit right in! Smile

Damn now I regret not calling myself Arbiter so i could go full Halo nerd with you. Anyway buddy welcome to the VGU, I'm pretty new myself but i can tell you with confidence that people here a real chill and welcoming. Also gotta say sucks what happened what to you with Symthic as I remember around the BF3 launch it was quite a active and high quality site.

Also i just downloaded your retextures and i gotta say top job mate.

Hope to see more of you in the future.
