in any day and age where computers and games are involved age.. means Bugger all.

it's self determination, a dream..  dedication to learn something new and improve on it.

and experience.

way i got my level design job wasnt through grades or degreee's.  to be honest my grades suck.
but they set me on based on my learning curve is easyer, faster. and i'm determined to learn and improve on what i do. and i kinda got some previous experience with world building. so that was a plus.

but dont let age get you. Age isnt everything. its the experience and know how that does it.

it wouldnt matter if you were 8 or 78, if youve never done something before and wanted to give it a try. and did good at it.  they would use it. simple as :)

One more thing:
Imho it's remarkable that a young guy like you is interested in such an 'oldfashioned' game.
Seems like you're more adult than one would guess from your age...

Although this 'garage business' story reminds me of a nice fairy tale, Duke... ;)

Yah so im young and like dos games and such. New games like MW2 and CoD: WaW and MAG bore me after maybe 3 days(BC2 is the only modern game i like). Also whats imho stand for, and I have the Unreal 3 UDK and its cool but the most complex game maker ive ever layed hands on. Ive gone from Source SDK for half life 2 to Blender and been able to make some maps with those but Unreal just is confusing. Oh and Bill gates was 20 when he started. Im what you call between gifted and a genius.  ;D

Bill Gates was 20 when he founded the Micro$oft Corporation.
He was 14 when he founded Traf-O-Data.

I believe the first of these five (from the link) is the most commonly accepted definition.

   I want my 15 bucks back. The guy wearing the black coat in the dark alley sold this game for me for 15 bucks. apparently everyone else got it for cheap. So since i paid more for my copy, I'm just going to sit here and read the forum, and not contribute anything.

Unfortunately such practice isn't necessarily illegal (with GPL).  It is still a con, you still got swindled, but depending on how the sale was done it might not be illegal.

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 used to make maps for my league bag on MW4 for training/campaign like situations online, I'd be interested in mapping.

thanks nice - you can handle GTKRadiant of the quake series already? Then UFORadiant will be nothing new for you. See http://ufoai.ninex.info/wiki/index.php/Mapping as a starting point. You can create new maps, create new tiles for random map assemblies or add details to existing maps. Whatever you like. The maps in trunk could almost all need some more love of a mapper.
