I know, for the past two weeks, I haven’t put up any content whatsoever, except the Deplorable memes. I’ve been thinking about a lot of things right now, and I came to some big decisions.
One of the things is the nature of social media, and I’m starting to loathe all social media now. I really think that social media was a huge lie and time waster. I can start going on twitter, facebook and others and waste hours of my time before I start to get to work on something – and so my work is suffering. According to the definition of addiction, if a behaviour becomes a problem to other areas in life, it has become an addiction.
So I’ve voluntarily decided, no more social media except for showcasing my work – and a full exclusion of Twitter and Facebook. Yes, I know that is inconsistent with what I’ve said in my videos, but I need to start to take my work seriously. Besides, social media was created to ensure people were arguing all the time – so I would rather not engage in it.
Other than that, the planning of GamerGate Trolls is almost all done. This block of lessons is all about creating the assets for that game. So, expect some real push on modelling – as I create Trollette and her apartment in Blender, and bring that all into Unreal. That new block of lessons is going to start in mid June – I need some time with my new computer to really get it working.
I am going to break down each part down as a project – that way people can get the practice they really need to create stuff properly – and that way I can focus on creating things and staying head myself.
Also, in this block of lessons, my Fiancée is going to get more involved. I know GGTs is a huge project. With all the major and minor characters and areas and objects – all of it will take at least 5-6 years for someone all by themselves. But if I get her involved, I can probably shave 3 years off of that – with the areas and objects.
Besides, that is why I started to produce videos – learning something and then teaching it is the best way to actually learn.
If you’re interested in game development, feel free to go to https://discord.gg/Msk5TQF for my discord server. I’ve got all my lessons available, and all my work as well.
Talk to you guys later
