Hai.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
G’day, ladies and gentlemen,
I obviously read this or that post on this forum in the past couple of years, and now I am joining because I need advice and help from people who know stuff and have experience in the field. Anyway, point is:
My name is KYKYLLIKA, which is transliteration of Кукушка, which is Russian for “Cuckoo bird”, which stuck around with me as a nickname since the times of Day of Defeat (the old one, before source). I come from the mid-European country Belarus, and now live in the magical land called Canadia. Well, maybe not very magical and maybe Canada, but who cares, there are wolves in the woods, there’s a mountain of snow under my window every winter, there’s cold wind in the summer, and there’s the largest open ice skating rink ever (I refer to a certain man-made body of water which freezes over hard in the winter and you can skate on it, but there are also larger lakes that freeze over and are relatively skatable, though are not maintained). All in all a rather tough place for me to live in because I hate cold, a wonderful place to live for me because I love skating, a terrible place for me to live in because I hate hockey and everyone around worships the hockey god till there are blisters on the inside of their skull, a wonderful place to live for me because I love the open wild and the woods, the swamps, hills, mountains, river basins “and we like all the fluffy animals”©. Anyway, that's where I’m from and where I’m at.
I am in many trades, the most relevant here are: CG graphics and development. I’m not exactly in game development because strictly speaking stuff I do is not games, though it’s pretty much identical. I am an experienced 3D modeller, I am an okay technologist in many areas. I also play a game or two occasionally, preferably Heroes of Might and Magic 2, 3 or 4, but I also have warm feelings towards Assasin’s Creed, Half Life, Doom 1&2, GTA (though not so much GTA4 on account of the city and no sun/open country), Elder Scrolls, Warcraft 1&2, Jedi Knight, and a score of other titles I had a brush or two with.

I am not much “enthusiast” as the modern term goes, but I know my stuff well enough to have fixed a few laptops here and there, and I love the machines. My dealing with computers goes back into my childhood when there was ZX Spectrum in my dad’s closet and when later I played some 6 or 8 colour game (I cannot remember, but it was pretty much yellow, red, orange, green, black, white) where a dude swung on a rope and would let go when you hit a button and the player’s goal would be to hit the button at exactly the right moment when the dude would be able to land on a platform (I am pretty sure that was the whole of the gameplay for that game). I’ve been removing parts from computers and putting different parts into them since I don’t know when, so the aspect of “building” and I go a long way back.

Well, that’s it for me. Maybe there’s more. There’s always more about people no matter how much is told, but I do not think it would be terribly interesting.

Hai.

Edit: apparently I created the thread without finishing the post by hitting some shortcut (maybe alt+s when I was putting down a “’s” too quickly to release alt before I pressed “s”. I just did it again, actually.
