Or, if you can't find a vampire, why not settle for a mapper?

I was thinking (noticed I said I was thinking...) that, with the re-launch of DaC, it'd be cool to have, in addition to a "map review" system/forum/whatever, an "Interview with a Mapper" forum/page/whatever on DaC.

I nominate OTB to be the first one of us interviewed, as (according to his website) the demo for his campaign will be available when DaC is "up and running again."

Of course, the biggest problem would be who would be the interviewer? I don't think it can/should be another mapper, but hell... I dunno. Just a thought.

What y'all think?

Kreegle talked about doing exactly what you suggested a while back while we were still in GSI-land. You might consider broaching the subject w/him to see if he has the time/energy to do it.

I think you should go first, you prolific bastard! :mrgreen:

I was trying (somewhat in vain) to get a mapping site up and running with a jazz lounge theme back on the old DAC. Between lack of time and motivation, it never happened. icon_sad

I'll put my hand up for interviewing, but that might seem kind of weird.

No kidding that would be weird. I can imagine the interviews already: "So, I'm a professional mapper who's made maps for retail games. How about you? Oh, just a few amateur maps? Well, I'm sure they weren't too bad." icon_mrhappy

I think that would work as you'd know all sorts of "And how did you get around known problem X in your map?" type of questions and I've never seen you cop a "I've worked on a Fallout game and am therefore superior to you in every way" attitude on these boards.

I'm with Talion that this would be a bit weird, but - as Viktor pointed out - since you don't adopt a superior to thee attitude because of your job I think it would work.

Viktor brought up the fact that you'd know what technical questions to ask, but I would ask, "Who are we going to aim these things at?" Are we looking for something geared toward mappers, or toward a general audience?

I would say a general audience, since that would include mappers, and it might attract viewers liking FO in general, as in "viewers coming just to see these reviews". Might happen, it's always interesting to read other people views on certain aspects of games and modding.

The DAC style skin kept giving me an error, so I reposted and switching to SubSilver I noticed a triple post. sorry! OTB can you erase the last two?

I wasn't implying Section8 was going to be arrogant. That was a joke. I just think it would be weird for the interviewer to know far more about the subject (mapping) than the person he's interviewing. He'd be far more suited to be a consultant to mappers than an interviewer. And that would be cool, too.

Whats going on with the forums? I'm getting weird errors. I posted in another topic and the board doesnt seem to recognize it though the post is there.

Flamescreen: Please see your SP campaigns thread in the spin offs area.

Unlike some people at BIS perusing the boards who didn't even work on a Fallout title icon_confused2...
