First Strike has posted a new developer diary from [b]RedMonkey999[/b]. [quote][b]Dev Diary #19 - RedMonkey[/b] Hello everyone, my name is Sam “[b]RedMonkey[/b]” Olson, I’m 21 years old, from Seattle, Washington (USA), and I’m primarily a modeler for [i]First Strike[/i]. [b]It All Began When...[/b] My path towards joining [i]First Strike[/i] started back in 1997 when I went to see the re-released special edition of [i]Star Wars: A New Hope[/i] in the theaters. After seeing [i]ANH[/i], I was hooked. I went to see the other Star Wars films (the original trilogy) in the theaters as soon as they were released, and I’ve been a Star Wars fan ever since. Some years later, when I entered high school, I took a summer course in 3D animation through the DigiPen Institute where I learned how to use 3D Studio Max 5 (ancient, I know). I liked it so much that I took another summer course in videogame programming, and then signed up for their full-year videogame programming and design program. After finishing up my year at DigiPen, I decided to go into aeronautical engineering and assumed that my videogame-making days were over. However, during my first year of school at the University of Washington, I decided I wanted to get into modding for [i]Battlefield: 2[/i]. I began my modding career making models for the now defunct [i]Russian Assault[/i] mod. When [i]Russian Assault[/i] closed its doors, I decided to apply for [i]First Strike[/i], an amazing-looking Star Wars mod that I had been following for short time. The team accepted me as a developer in November of 2005, and the rest is history.
