Paper Model Commissions Begin Today!
« on: June 14, 2011, 07:18:23 PM »
I will be selling paper models of 3d models per-demand. This is a once in the lifetime chance to receive your own physical, real-life version of anything you desire from your favorite game.

Ever dreamed of holding a railgun? Want to impress your friends with a model of your favorite Quake monster? Want miniature versions of your favorite items or weapons? This is your chance!

All models are done on request, and to the specifications of the requester. If you have a custom model or a custom skin you wish to throw in, that can be done easily. Please note, however, while I don't expect many requests, if I get more than I can handle, I may be backlogged and it may take very long for a request to be fulfilled - however, these requests will last until they are all finished.

If everything goes normally, from start to finish models can take about a week to complete. If you wish, I will send you regular updates on your models' progress, and pictures will be posted here of each model I make.

Pricing will vary based on complexity and size of finished model (more paper + more ink = more pricey), and shipping will only be covered for Canadian and US residents. Anyone outside of North America will be required to reimburse the shipping cost BEFORE the package is shipped (sorry, but it's the only way I can do this). They will not be expensive and I won't rip anyone off - offhand, I can probably go for 8$ to 15$ CAD for a miniature, and $20 - $30 for a full-size model, but be wary that pricing will vary based on the work required for the specific model.

If you are interested, please contact me: paril at alteredsoftworks dot com, or reply here.

I also have one finished Quake Super Nailgun, created from the high quality pack (can't remember author name, sorry whoever made it). I am selling this model, which I made a few months ago, for $15. Pictures:

The texturing does wonders. I just wish I had a laser printer, it would probably make colors stand out more than an inkjet printer.

Sadly no, but it's not that big of a deal.

The big deal here is BUY MY MODELS :(

Hmmmm,  pair of health packs would be handy around the house.

Maybe a row of shards going up the steps.

Combat armor in the corner.

Miniature Shambler...  somewhere.

Big Bad German guy with akimbo mini guns from the end of wolf3d.


I'll think about it,  can't let cats go hungry.

I should also mention that the price depends on complexity - a health pack, for instance, if I use the standard model/textures is just a cube, so I could probably get away with a dollar per "basic" item, maybe $2.50 for the combat armor. The shipping would be the most expensive part I would think.

Anyway, please think about it, I would love the community to have some of my models and to always remember the name Paril. I want to give something back to all of you awesome people, and even though I haven't been able to do so in the past with mods and whatnot (and endless release dates), at least I know I can get this done  :D

Thanks, yes, system crashed; unknown reason.

Hopefully everything is restarted now.

Some servers seem down currently Quadz, don't know if it's just a hiccup that'll fix itself, maintenance or what, but just in case, I mention it.

It's always been that if you mymap and disconnect before the map goes live, it's deleted from the queue.

Occasinally, someone will stick around until their map loads, and THEN disconnect, which is not appreciated. (Currently the only recourse is a full mute, as there's no provision for blocking just mymap usage.)

At least these days, the chosen map has to be roughly compatible with the number of players active on the server. (No more mapping sewer64 on a 3-player server; etc.)

Any way to prevent people from trolling with mymap? By that I mean they join the server, mymap a map, then immediately discconnect, forcing whoever's playing to play a map that nobody there necessarily wanted to play in the first place. Maybe have it check to see if the player who issued the command

OK, they made a routing change that appears to have resolved the issue I was seeing here.

Everyone else's pings back to normal?

I'm seeing it too. No packetloss (thankfully) but a very bad route geographically. Will open a support ticket.
