    Just a thought

    Post by SytremeLaker on Wed 24 Nov 2010, 4:56 am

    Lately I've been heavily considering getting back into things (that being server-based administration) seeing as I've had a lot of spare time in between school, gym and dance (not that pansy stuff, i'm learning how to tut and do chereo Smile ) Anyways, the whole ideas been knocking on my head recently, mostly thanks to RadSavage for making me reminisce too much. I was pretty convinced I milked this thing for every possible interest I had in it but now I realize its pretty much a continuing cycle of interest between this stuff, WoW (FUCKYESXPAC) and whatever might make me turn my head. CS somehow found its way back onto my computer and I feel like whatever bore me in the first place suddenly vanished.

    I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do yet as I hardly want to act upon simple impulses. I want to make sure that this time I can hold an interest, not like the time I decided to come back and leave soon after. But assuming I do come back, I feel that it won't be back with PC Shop.

    Honestly, what's keeping me away from joining back up with the Community is the fact that I would feel like I'm under too much pressure to perform well. I suppose my ideal wish would be to bring PC Shop back to at least a fraction of what it once was during its brightest times but I know there is simply too many obstacles in the way of doing so, CS 1.6 being the most evident factor of them all. The game is old. As much as I want to deny it, I can't. I have deep connections to the game as it stole a good portion of my adolescent years and I honestly still do. In my perspective it ranks up there with classics such as Mario and Zelda. But like those games came and went by, I believe it's time to move on.

    That is why that if I do come back, it will be without PC Shop and on CS:S instead. From my 2+ years with PC Shop, I can't deny that it was an enjoyable experience. But, honestly, it lost it's fun very quickly. I recognized this soon after my second return while I oversaw the BF2 and the original CoD server. I began modding to the likes of others, not for my own satisfaction. If a certain change bore complaints, I took it personally and made it my sole goal to fix it. Before I knew it, this thing changed from a hobby to something more like work (but I admit if I actually turned any sort of profit I wouldn't have minded at all).

    I don't plan on acting anytime soon as I want to familiarize myself with what Source Mod (CS:S counterpart of AMXX) has to offer. I just wanted to post this in the event that I do end up starting up again and someone from PC Shop notices me working with a different community. No hard feelings at all, I just want to try and regain that feeling of success when a new player enters your freshly made server and becomes a regular. So, with that, I wish PC Shop luck with its future endeavors and perhaps I'll see you guys around on CS:S Smile

    Quite understandable, good luck with whatever you pursue buddy.
    And don't worry, no hard feelings whatsoever. Very Happy
    At least not on my part.

    I really think you should look into developing with SourceMod. It's a bit more complex but I might be able to help with my programming skittlez.

    I don't plan on putting as much dedication into it as I did with PC Shop. I'm hoping that if I do end up going through with it it turns out to be more of a hobby and something I check up on maybe only a couple times a week as opposed to several hours a day. That being said, whatever knowledge I had with computer language I used to have probably is buried deep already haha. It's been too long since I looked at a simple if statement and I never had intentions of getting really serious with the stuff.

    The urge to create new mods whether it be for source or cs1.6 is obviously a strong one. Once you start you can't stop. The reason PCSHOP and its servers still exist is because Tirant loves to code mods, and we have been financially blessed by donations(mostly from the Head Admins). We should all recognize and be grateful for that(Thanks Tirant!!). It's totally understandable if you want to just create new and fun server mod ideas without even really playing. That being said i hope you'll be doing it for PCshop.

    The future of PCSHOP will exist only if we change from a CS 1.6 clan to a gaming community, meaning a place where people gather to discuss gaming of all types, and occasionally play together. Where BF2 mod brought us together, what will keep us together is each other rather than a common game.

    Expanding into CS:S mods would be a great way to do this, though creating (or morphing into) a gaming community brings its own challenges that I could write an essay about.

    Sytreme, I feel like you would be an invaluable asset to PCSHOP in its evolution beyond 1.6 (at this point I'm assuming this will happen, if anyone has rational arguments why we shouldn't, let them be known). Whatever time you can contribute, if you help PCSHOP make an entrance into the CS:S community, it will add years to our existence.

    Don't feel like you have to make it what it once was. Gaming in general has changed a lot since 3-4 years ago, and anything you can add to the community will surely be amazing.

    Very Happy
