Re: Introductions

So here is a bit about myself, and a template for people to work on, you can fill as much or as little as you like.

-------------------------------------------------

Name: Caswal "Zeussy" Parker

Occupation: Games Programming Teacher

Location: Original UK, Currently living in Melbourne Australia

Interests: Games, Programming, Vehicles, WWII Stuff

Vehicles Currently Owned: Kawasaki Balius ZR250 (For sale atm), 1992 Suzuki Cappuccino

Dream Garage Vehicles: Morgan Aero 8, Triumph Street Triple, KettenKrad. Alfa 159 Sports Wagon

Previous Vehicles of Interest: Suzuki RG250 (woot for 2 smokers), Aprillia Tuono RS50

How did you find us? Well, we are us, but how did u find us? Google, facebook, wikipedia etc?

About:

Moved from the UK to Australia to study, stayed on to teach. Working in my spare time on this project. Only have a motorcycle license, no car license (due to various circumstances).

My older brother is an awesome garage mechanic, and always peaked my interest with the things he built. Such as a little 75CC trike, and a dune buggy (powerd by a GS250 engine) for one of my brithdays. Living on a Farm both of these were great fun.

Also build the franken car that is my dads landrover. Which is an old Land rover series 3 body, with a home built firewall/bulkhead on a shortened 1987 Range Rover chassis, running a TD200 engine and auto box from a late 90's discovery. It Originally was running with Rover V8's that kept dieing due to the ghost of lucas past, it also had dual combine harvester exhausts.

My bros current project is turbo charging an '89 Suzuki GSX-750R.

Re: Introductions

Name: Andrew "Daffyflyer" Lamb

Occupation: IT Support

Location: Canberra, Australia - Moving to Melbourne soon hopefully!

Interests: Games, Art, Cars & Motorsport

Vehicles Currently Owned: 1994 Mazda MX5 Clubman (Modified, see Below), 1995 Mitsubishi Lancer Coupe (Also Modified)

Dream Garage Vehicles: Lotus 211, Ferrari F430 Scuderia

About: Met Zeussy while studying 3d Animation, currently working in IT Support, and working on Automation in my spare time/when I should be sleeping!

Own an MX5 with an evil engine (1.8L MX5 engine, with Cams, porting, exhaust, extractors, forged internals, ECU - 130kw approx @ 7600), desperately in need of a coat of paint and a new softtop!

Also own a 1995 Lancer Coupe with a 103kw Proton Satria 1.8L, a low ratio box and some suspension mods, also looks like a heap of shite but goes well :)


Keen on playing games, doing motorsport and trackdays, and working on 3d art, so this project combines all my loves really! :D

Re: Introductions

Name: Caitlin "Caitlin" Caitlin (that is my whole name. Definitely.)

Occupation: Using daffyflyer's money to bake cakes, play computer games and sit on the internet. Also occasionally looking for jobs.

Location: Next to Daffy. Singing. And driving him insane.


Interests:
Internet, eating, weeping as all my money trickles into cars.

Vehicles Currently Owned: Shared with Daffy - although he missed one which he may still be trying to sell? It looks kind of like a fridge. I'm not a very good marketer.


Dream Garage Vehicles:
Something that starts more reliably than our mx5 but is just as fun. And something whooshy and luxurious but which goes round corners. And an original mini. And anything else that happens to be shiny.


About:
Associated with the daffyflyer, obviously, I contribute precisely nothing to this project except occasional interruptions to make 1/3 of the team go do dishes. Despite not really being the target audience (not nerdy enough about cars) I'm still super excited about this game because I like it when niches get filled. Oh no wait that sounds awfully suspect.

Re: Introductions

Name: Jayelinda "Nortala" Suridge

Occupation: Games programmer

Location: Melbourne Australia

Interests: Programming, games, languages, spiders

Vehicles Currently Owned: None atm. A combination of good public transport and expensive parking leads to spend my money on other things.

Dream Garage Vehicles: I want one of these.

About:
Studied with Daffy and Zeussy, now partnered to the latter. I have to confess I know a lot more about game engines than car ones - but it's OK, I'm not the one tweaking the stats.

I think this game has a lot of potential and I'm looking forward to seeing it complete.

Re: Introductions

First Name: Jakub

Occupation: Student

Location: A small town in Poland

Interests: Role Playing, video Games, 3d modelling, cars, Republika music

How did I find you: I just googled "car industry games"

About me:
I'm sorry for my English, it isn't my native language. As I mentioned in Interests, i like 3d modelling - actually, I'm beginner modeller, and I want to be professional modeller in near future.

My favorite video games are Stunts, Detroit, Carmageddon II, Civilization III. I also played Car Tycoon, but i didn't like it. I think that main reason is, it has too little customization.

I think Automation is going to be very good game, game of my dreams, i would say, if you of course finish it.

Re: Introductions

Name: Steve

Occupation: Student

Location: UK

Interests: Games, Airsofting, cars, anything military

Vehicles Currently Owned: Vauxhall Astra coupe, Track day Vauxhall Vectra

Dream Garage Vehicles: Sierra Cosworth RS500, Astra Coupe 888 version, Vauxhall Monaro VXR

Previous Vehicles of Interest: Fiesta SI with 2.0 mondeo engine fitted, MK2 Escort 4 door

About:

Worked in boring jobs until I decided to try and get into what I wanted to do since I was 10 (motor vehicle repair). Spent most of my time when I was younger working on cars with my stepdad (Mk1 escort mexico and Mk2 escort RS2000) so learned how to build engines and pretty much everything else on cars, also learned about making them go faster than the manufacturer intended.

My 2 cars at the moment are both work in progress mainly my Vectra which has taken a lot of fabrication work simply because no one uses them on track days (apart from the V6 challenege cars but the money involved is a bit more than I would be willing to spend)

I have a few suggestions I would like to share as this is a game I have always wanted to see on the market but the ones that are out have always left me a little cold because of the simplicity of them.

Re: Introductions

Welcome Steve.


You should post some pics of the vectra, sounds like a cool project.



The lack of depth in other games of this kind Is pretty much the inspiration behind the project.

If you have ideas for the game, get in the suggestions forum and start posting! :)
