UFO:AI needs you. Yes, you.
« on: March 28, 2010, 12:13:05 pm »
In a FOSS project there are two kinds of people, those who contribute and those who don't. Not to imply that those who don't are in any way unimportant, but those who do are much more useful to the project. To those who are eager to see a new release, I suggest you get involved in contributing game content. There is a lot of things people can do, arguably the easiest being mapping. While not everything will actually speed up the next release, working on the game will at least keep you occupied.

I agree 100%, BTAxis, & just want to add here that even people without almost any experience regarding computers could help:


Take a walk, enjoy the nature & record some interesting sounds for UFO:AI with your mp3 player:
http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php?topic=3580.msg26141#msg26141

SCREAM INTO A MICROPHONE (yes, as simple as that  ;)):
http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php?topic=1527.msg34776#msg34776

Use your synthesizer & record some cool sounds:
http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php?topic=1546.msg8092#msg8092

Again I can only tell you to take a walk & enjoy the niceness of spring, this time using different terrain & with finding a method to get good samples of yourself walking, running & jumping around (Do not forget to document your records  ;)):
http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php?topic=1727.msg9343#msg9343

Or if you are rather the destructive type of person  :D:
http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php?topic=3617.msg26545#msg26545

Or maybe you are the creative person, you can send sketches & drawings also, there is always a way to integrate cool looking & theme-fitting stuff:
http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php?topic=2890.msg19572#msg19572

Here you can find very simple tasks, designed for those of you, who do not have much time, but still feel the need to help making this project better:
http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php?topic=4665.msg36393#msg36393


You want 2.3 out ?! - go give yourself a kick & do something productive  ;)


... or wait & stay a passive spectator ::).

I agree this project could use a little kick of contributions to get the blood moving.

Myself, I was gone for a bit because the hard drive on my old computer started going...

I was going to get another hard drive when I found other issues as well, so I just got a new computer, one of those i7 jobs - now I'm busy putting all my crap onto the new one from backups, and I hope to get back to actively working on various things for this project again very soon (a day or two).

Somewhere on one of my backups I have files from when I started some tutorials for TAG files and modeling - I hope to have those in the wiki soon.

I've also been itching to getting back the new soldier models - perhaps if we had more *pictures* and eye candy on the front news page of things we're working on, it would attract more people.
