Halo CE General Discussion » Zeus Releases Countdown Jan 28, 2015 12:56 AM (Total replies: 80)

After seeing those links and the time-stamps on them, I'm going to bit the bait and assume you're not a troll.

However, I hope you understand that your mannerisms in the past couple months(?) on this site have been highly reminiscent of a troll.

-Though I have perused this site since '08 (some years more frequently than others) I have never heard or (or at least remember reading about) "Zeus" until recently. Newer members, which there are a fair bit of, are even less likely to have seen your earlier threads (especially since you had some of them deleted).

-Despite these likely possibilities, you've started your last two most recent threads with essentially "Who wants Zeus?" without giving a clear explanation of what "Zeus" even is.

-For those who spent any additional time reading replies on what initially seems like a deliberately vague topic, there was still little evidence to suggest you were actually even working on this project. Something as simple as a screenshot of a beta build of Zeus in the original post would already have made you appear 300% more credible. Again, looking at your older topics it becomes clear that you've done exactly that, and even released beta builds, but based on recent memory, there doesn't appear to be a reason to trust you.

Deliberately vague promises of 'something good'
-> Sounds like a troll
Arrogance to assume everybody immediately knows about your project just by name
-> Sounds like a troll

-Years of cancelled projects and false promises have made this "community" extremely skeptical and jaded. I understand that you've been doing this for almost a decade, but as far as my memory serves me, you haven't been especially active on this forum.

-You've implied that it's on the people reading your original post to look up (google) what the heck Zeus is/ how credible you are. This is simply not the case. As the original poster, it's on you to clearly explain what your project is about, lest you look like a fraud or a fool. Again, I see you've done that in older posts; no one wants to look for older posts, especially if they doubt your legitimacy from the outset.

-Again, everything I've said is based on threads you've started in the last 3 months. In those threads you've sought to employ 'gimmicks' like voting and count-downs. Those are fine and dandy for highly popular project, otherwise, it looks like attention seeking.

-(Your?) comments that essentially say "well if you don't want it I'll just release it on sites that appreciate it," don't make much sense from a practical perspective. If you have a worthwhile and completed product and you release it on another site, anyone can, and will, just link us that site. People here who care miss nothing. On the other hand, it DOES look like you are trying to use the threat of taking the project away as a bargaining chip, which looks like more evidence of attention seeking.

-Your message to Dennis (posted in this thread), while polite and articulate, makes no practical sense. Dennis is in no way representative of the people on this forum, nor is he responsible for the content of their posts. He owns and moderates the site, little more. He has almost absolutely nothing to do with your problem.

The way you've presented yourself recently makes you look like either a troll or a noob, and that's why you've been treated like one.

Do you have Aspergers or some thing like it? It's understandable/nothing to be ashamed of.

The problem is that a crocodile's legs aren't designed for running.

Only thing I can think of is to base the general shape off a crocodile, but make the muscle structure more like a lion, or an ostrich.

From time to time there are also quality issues that we had assumed would go away when we rendered things at final quality, and then they don't go away when we render things at final quality...

At this pace .... It looks like we won't see this till spring.. and the first round of spv3 maps probably won't be around till mid to late 2015 worst case scenario early 2016

Edited by Halo305sparts on Jan 20, 2015 at 05:27 PM

CE3 release date for SPV3 would be pretty cool...

This is taking an inordinate amount of time. My bet's they either:

a) Found some un-resolvable error they don't want to tell us about, or
b) Are having difficulty getting the latest OS in a releasable state.

I think ODST's trying to contain the Flood in such a premeditated scenario, warrants the use of SPARTAN equipment, and anything else they can get their hands on.

The battleship is actually the same size as the frigate. I didn't think it needed to be bigger than the cruiser. I look at the battleship as a heavier class of a frigate.

I think I recall a Destroyer being exactly that in "The Fall of Reach" novel. Only 6 meters longer (3 meters of additional plating on each side) but twice as massive, two MAC's too.

Respecting a creator's artistic vision, and holding them to any sort of standards, are definitively opposing ideas.

Respecting an artist's vision entails one assume that only the artist is the proper judge of quality and what the desired result should be. Holding said artist to any sort of standards implies that said standards are more important than the artist's judgement, should they conflict.

You have a right to expect whatever level of quality you want from things, even if you do absolutely nothing to get them. You also have a right to voice when others don't meet your precious standards.

Everyone's still going to think you're an entitled little wristwatch.

... You guys are getting a free project from an unpaid team.

You don't HAVE to be getting anything at all!

Who cares what's better, be it SPV3, an Evloved map, Sierra, Coldsnap 2.0, or H6 Super Jonlex'o Brothers, it's FREE. It costs you nothing to play or not play. You do not lose anything by these people choosing to work on the projects they want to.

The concept behind evolved maps seems great,you get new BSP and encounters and it's essentially a new level altogether. Being a "remake" of a classic halo gives them some story related benchmarks as a framework.

While I agree SPV3 isn't as nice as the "Evolved" project, it's still interesting. It still brings new assets, mechanics, and other ideas to be played.

You cannot realistically expect ANY unpaid team to create "Evolved" version of every single campaign map. The mod that SPV3 essentially is, is still a nice alternative to nothing at all.

Everything in CE is a rehash one way or another.

If you really want a completely new/different experience, why don't you go and buy another game?

Or am I on to something here..

This recent spread of posts looks like a transcript from a youtube webcast written by 12 year old children. All i see are threads about "why is halomaps forum so stupid now", its because of people like you.

Now perhaps I haven't been here as long as some of you more seasoned members, but as far as I recall, it's always been like this. In some ways better; I haven't seen gore porn on this site in years...
