Pocketplane.net is 10 years old!
« on: March 09, 2014, 11:32:17 PM »
Although in many ways the beginning of the "PPG era" is marked by the beginning of work on Kelsey (in 2001), PPG itself was launched in a flurry of blood and spittle on March 31, 2004. Which means our tenth anniversary is fast approaching, and some sort of commemoration seems to be in order. I have no idea what that would look like, however.

Those of you who are still here and paying attention, got any clever ideas to help us celebrate?

Find out how many FWS members are still around and throw an online (unmoderated) party?  Hehehe...
I heard Cuv was involved with EE.  Other than that, I dunno.

And Happy early Anniversary, Jason!

Oh. Yay! We're ten years old!

(celebrates)

I'd release a mod, but I'm too deep in my SWTOR cups. By the way, may I nag you a bit about Nalia ToB? (Keto ToB, too, but I'm more partial to Nalia. The undressing scene is the best).

"blood and spittle.. "  ;D  Forgotten how funny you all are.

I have no suggestions for ways to celebrate.

Edit: Er, congratulations, of course!

Yay, Blue! Congrats on winning the RPG contest!

You know, Keto is still and always a favorite(or, rather, a classic now), and people on BG boards comment on her with great fondness. If you and Jason ever decide to complete her, I'm sure you'll make lots of people very happy, whenever that happens.

It really was about that nasty.  Worse for some but to say it was merely contentious would be an understatement.

However, "murder pact" seems a bit extreme after so much time has passed.

Adding ToB content to some of the mods that are currently lacking it would fit nicely, I think.  ;D

No doubt, no doubt, never got the finer points of it all but yes, it did seem to be a fairly serious schism within the modding community.

Thanks Kulyok!

Keto does deserve finishing, even if only completion's sake. It's more motivating if there's actually still people clamoring for it, though. It's been so damn long.
Shhh.

I'm neither here nor paying attention, and I don't have any ideas.

But happy anniversary nonetheless. :-)

Aaaand, we're 10!

Pocket Plane Group turns 10 years old today, having launched the evening of March 31, 2004. Since then, hundreds of new mods have been developed for Infinity Engine games, and the games themselves have found their way onto platforms which didn't exist when we were starting out. Our work, and the contributions we've made to countless playthroughs during the past decade, remain an enormous source of pride. Thank you for your part in getting us this far, and we look forward to continuing to delight in the years ahead!

Fuck you, Echon. Your one mod doesn't get the glory here. And your piss statement will be noted, by me if no one else.

* while I realize it's a lot of feckless work, it hardly rises to ... bah, I need moar alcohol.  But I didn't mean to diminish your selfless work
