I’ve recently made the jump to RedHat but I couldn’t have done it alone. There is an excellent Linux forum at http://www.linuxcompatible.org where I learnt how to get my system up and running. There one chap (“DapperDan”) has helped me immensely. At one point I mentioned Blender being the greatest open source software ever and gave a link
It turned out that DapperDan was interested in Blender as a game modeller for the game “Trespasser”. It is an old game (1998) base on Jurassic Park (I for one love all things Michael Chrichton). This post is on his belhalf.
I think Blender needs all the exposure it can get and I’m sure Blender’s game developers realise that gameplay is the most important thing, not how old a game is ( Blender’s game engine isn’t exactly going to complete with HL2’s Source engine is it )
So, if anyone is interested, check out http://dynamic5.gamespy.com/~trescom/board/index.php where all the Trespasser fans hang out. Here is the post most relevant to Blender users: http://dynamic5.gamespy.com/~trescom/board/viewtopic.php?p=20076#20076.
I’m sure some Blenderheads will be interested in doing some dino modelling and other things (EnV comes to mind ) to see the Trespasser community bring it to life.
