Project abandoned for some time.....

I am extremely sorry to announce that frentic will continue making super slow progress untill june-july 2012. I am trying my best to upgrade my computer so as to run UDK satisfactorily but have not been successful so far but now when my parents seem to show symptoms of not providing any support, I think it would require me to save on my own to upgrade it which is going take some time.... :( I am really sorry if this news is heartbreaking for you. ;(

3DMagix and IllusionMage- 100% scam

this isnt anything about our project but as my duty to do something it was absolutely neccessary for me to post this.

3DMagix and IllusionMage are stealing blender and selling it with their own brand name.
please do not buy this software, all claims they make are false and you can download latest version of blender free of cost from blender.org.



3DMagix, 3DMagixPro, IllusionMage, scam

aliens?

   Remember the times when people go out to hunt ghosts, werewolves, chimeras and dragons? Ahh, those were the days. Now,everything revolves around aliens. Seriously, aliens...aliens...aliens!!!!!! Does anyone ever remember the native supernatural creatures anymore?

  Sometimes, I think that the UFO fanatics want 2012 to come soon so that the president is forced to bring everyone to that planet they found which looks a lot like earth. It's kinda ridicules because since it looks like earth, how is it more exciting than earth?

  Even now, a group called SETI claims that they saw UFOs coming to earth in 2012. Probably a lie. Everyone knows that at the end of the world(which doesn't necessary fall on 2012), cats will gain superior intelligence and will enslave humans all around the world while having a civil war with dogs.

BTW, the reason that I have been absent from Skype is because I ran out of ram in the middle of November :(
I'll try to buy a new computer but that may take a while.

The true purpose of online Shooters

Okay after much waiting, our glorious leader is still absent from the project. I don't blame him since he doees not have the best Internet Service Provider around and he seems to have some issues with his to this very day(course,there is exams,schools etc.). Though I realised that the only thing he is absent from is Skype and he is still able to update the blog so I was hoping that this post will trigger another post explaining his absence from the discussions.

So I had been hearing a lot of things about wars and hatred(though they mostly come from the popular anime,Naruto shippuden) and frankly,I was quite sick of it. They just keep pouring on and on about it without a moment consideration of the beauty of the world.

A coin has two sides. Also, I have to agree that there are much bloodshed and corrupted governments but don't you think that today is better than yesterday? I had never heard about democracy, free women(no not free,I mean free...oh wait...mind you |-( ), anti-slavery, second chances for prisoners and more.

That is when I realised the value of online gaming,moreover FPS.The same people I mentioned up there(the trollers spamming off-topic comments on youtube videos like halo,machinimas etc.) detest online FPS games because of how they drive people to war,how they mock real soldiers and teach the wrong values and...other...words...(trolling as usual) but I have a different opinion on these games.

The creators rarely mention the purpose of creating these games, maybe because it is obviously something you could do to get some excitement without actually entering the battlefield and experience some pain on the way or to educate the public(or something like that) but it is more than that.

Unlike a war which drives soldiers to fight with hated, a mindless thirst for blood or because they have no choice(more specifically, it's a better choice to fight than to surrender and face cruel dictatorship), FPS games attracts people simply out of competitive...ness.In other words,It is basically a sport.

People are rarely forced to play modern warfare-they choose to play it themselves. No matter how extreme halo's gameplay is, the blood is not real and thus, becomes unsatisfying for the actual blood-thirsty killers. As for hatred, it is an emotion that is found in every aspect but in really small amounts in counter strike compared to the ones who are ready to kill for real,wrath.

As I was saying, online first-person shooters games are essentially a sport. Normal players fight for fun, some for glory. Champions will try hard to defend their title and those without good sportsmanship will hack,just like how real life people cheat with muscle enhancing drugs. Finally,there are those people who fight to get their mind of their problems.

These are the characteristics of the people who take part in a sport. Course, they are not in the same amounts and are not completely the same like addiction. People may become so addicted, they cannot tell the difference between reality and fantasy and kill in real life to increase their kill/death ratio but that is insanity which is why they always ended up in a hospital instead of a death warrant right away in court.

Addiction-we have to fix that in our game.Maybe we can actually turn it into an actual sport?Like a Nintendo Wii but more real sport? After all,in the storyline,Frentic is suppose to be a tournament to stop intergalactic warfare.

sleep mode/Acculity

Hi guys

It has been a long time since our last post.Itqan's internet subscription has expired and school has started for most of us so the project is somewhat asleep.For now,the active members (as I have seen on skype) are me,leif(sound director) and lucas. I do have some features planning out but I can't reveal them too soon.I am not even sure they will be part of production since there is no active team member to discuss with but i could reveal our Acculity feature.

Acculities are special maps without any map types.Basicly,they are alien towns chosen for frentic players to train.They are like MMORPG towns since you can trade,buy weapons,armor and other props and socialize.You are probably thinking "Dam.Another game which destroys the actual face to face chat".Well,there will be some of that but this is Frentic, moderate chatting is not frentic.Now talking with guns and explodies,thats frentic.

When you enter an Acculity,you will be given a special badge.If you activate the badge,you can see other frentic players with the activated badges.Those are the people who you can "socialize". Socializing is different from deathmatches as there are better rewards like more credits,better stats(kills,levels etc.),better drops(items you may receive apon defeating an opponent) and you spawn at the same place you died.

In the meantime,Other frentics without activated badgesand locals(AIs) are either busy with plain talk or they are buying stuff while people jump over their heads lunging plasma(the weapons and projectiles are holograms by the way.we don't want any accidents outside the tournament).Speaking of locals,some Acculities like Harres have hostile locals like wild tregars.In those maps,you might even uncover some cinematics and have your own little adventure.

The Acculity could also be a place for your guild bases,rooms to house you and your teammates which you can customize with furniture(including a plasma tv to view youtube videos).The town even has its own theater.I may even toss in an arena Acculity for special events.There are lots of things you can do at Acculities.

This is just one of the features i had thought about and there are others which i will tell you later.Guess what feature i am going to tell you next.I'll give you a hint-meow.
