I know, I know. But to my credit - most of that time was spent shovelling.
York PA got dumped on - we got as much snow in one day as we get on average for a WHOLE WINTER. So I've literally spent every night shoveling, every day shoveling. It's left little time for creative pursuits.
On top of that I've had my hands full with life stuff such as my second son's upcoming birth. That means Dr's appts, calling around, finding sitters, etc.
I never expected the level of traffic my little post to John Romero would generate and I'm happy for it. No more excuses. Time to knuckle down and get to work.
I've waited a long time for the vaunted "Sci-Fi DLC" by 'The Game Creators'. I have several of their other packs (having been a FPS Creator Reloaded gold backer) and much of the content is unfortunately redundant or kind of amateurish.
That's not the case here.
The kit comes with a whole slew of useful items:
- 23 Building parts
- 7 Characters (alien, space marines and a spaceman)
- 11 Collectables
- 73 Decals
- 34 Interior sections
- 21 Rocks
- 43 Scenery items
- 3 Martian terrains
- 3 Martian skies
I don't care about the custom level they made aside from the bits of script I can rip out and repurpose.
So let's talk price. Currently it's on sale as a promo - 14.99 USD. That's a really good deal for a ton of very high quality assets. Take a look:
I've spent a long time looking for various parts that go together as a whole and while this was originally designed for ground-based games - it works really well for a number of sci-fi pieces.
