Alright, so I decided to make this topic, to tell you guys, why do I think that Rotacak is a nice man.








Remember that, Rotacak likes what he do: You guys know that we had a conflict with Tremulous developers about changing name of "Tremulous 2". They tought that he will going to make "evil money" from this project. He actually wanted this game to don't die. To be honest, DarkLegion will never going to make Tremulous 2, so I don't know why they didn't accept that Rotacak make it. Well, he said okay, and he changed the name in Murnatan. Now AAA Games are making a tottaly new "Humans vs Aliens" game. Remember that, he left his job to making this game. If you want to make a really nice project, then you do it this because you like. It's like in my case: I started to make Youtube videos with comments and I really like what I'm doing. I see this like a hobby for me.


                                ^^^^^^^^^^
Well, now the conclusion for this things above is that he likes to do this. He put a lot of his passion in this project. Why this game will not be free? Because, like I said, he left his job for this and he spending a lot of money on this project. I think it's not really easy to make this things without money.
So from here we got +RESPECT



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




RCZ Server: To own a server is not really easy. A lot of problems is coming to you. There are many category of players who do problems in server and then he gets banned, and is going to contact owner (I don't want to give examples). I never seen Rotacak to gets angry. He's calm with everyone. Also, from when Edge became more popular and RCZ started to be empty, he didn't close the server. Also, he didn't insult Yalt for copy his ideas from RCZ.


                                                  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Conclusion from this: Rotacak is a calm guy and nice with everyone. I never seen him to insult or to be angry.




-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




A good regisor: He made 3 videos with developing Tremulous 2 (Murnatan). I can say that videos inspired me a lot. I think I saw his first video (Developing games in Czech Republic), like 500-1000 times. I replayed that video a lot. Also I made a parody of his video for a French project, which I got maximum grade from this.  Also "Underwater explosion" is so cool filmed. It also have a really nice music on it, created by AAA Games. In one day, I will make a parody from this one too.

 
                                                     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Conclusion from this: Rotacak is a good regisor. If he will going to make a movie, I think it would be a really nice succes from it. He have very cool ideas and things in his head. Really big respect from this man.








My comment for Rotacak:


Rotacak, I have to say a lot, but first of all, you're a nice guy. I didn't meet so much people like you on internet. If I were from CZ, I spend all my time with you, and learn a lot of stuff. I think that developers from your studio are really happy to spend their time working with you. I think there's a lot of fun.
I will try to support your project a lot. Actually I'm just a kid so I don't have money to donate and I don't know nothing to do about programming. I'm just a simple member here who just translate from English in Romanian. But, in my heart I feel that I really support this project. I will try to tell more people about this game when will come out.


Thank you for answering me on IRC. I know sometimes I put some stupid questions but I think is okay. I wish you good luck in future with this project, and then hope you will go and visit Japan, as you wish.



Very much respect for you and AAAGames's developers, from MegaMedic.



+ a very big                                                                        from me!

I don't know what's your problem about this topic. I just have a admiration for him, like you have for other people. I know him better than you, and he's good in more situations.

From what I know about him and the whole project, here's my summary about the whole project (not just rota):
+ves:
-Made the Funko mod, ranked one of the top (not the top though) mods for 1.1. However the GPP one didn't make it that far, it was missing a few important things that the 1.1 part that made the mod good that I liked.
-Made some good maps.
-Friendly bloke (well, the last time I talked to him in-game, it's been a long time)
-Made a huge effort to assemble a dev team in his area to start making T2
-Good artists, this was the main point, and a VERY strong point
-Stuck to the main tremulous 1.0 ideas at T2 stage, enhancing details etc. rather than using 1.2 models (which Unv used, awful goon... however they're changing it anyway)
-ves:
-Forgot, or ignored legal terms with Tremulous before making T2, and got his consequence. I thought he initally already got timbo's permission but then I realised he didn't, and community went all rape.
-Tried to make money from a tremulous franchise (Physical property is different, i.e. Granger Pushies and Granger Keyrings)
-Smashed up his office (WHY?!? Their specs are better than I could ever afford! Donate to me! :))
-His dev team consisted mainly of artists. Unvanquished lacks artists, and T2/Murnatan (I have no idea about the murnatan project, the credits hasn't changed though) has an overload of artists in comparison to programmers and other devs.
-Dev team was mainly active when they were initialised and motivated, now that the community's just as dead as trem's almost no news coming out.
-Too much expectations, raise $1000 in a few months is unrealistic for a game with less than 200 active players at the time
-No Garantees on identicle gameplay with new engine

Overall: Like Volt, before Volt started turning into a project tyrant. Volt was a great guy too. Too bad lots of the good folks left tremulous...

Therefore, Tremulous 2 might have the future (or might not, since it isn't developed by a corporations, depends on what Global Government will decide), but Unvarnished doesn't.

Hello Virus. Thank you for added your opinion about Rotacak and Murnatan. It's really nice to read more opinions. Where I want to comment is at part of "making money". To be honest, that plushy grangers sells are not so profitable. It's not like selling cars. I don't think so he got so much money from that plushy, like a bank. He's programmer, and a programmer get a lot of money. If he really left his job just to make "evil money" from this then it's not true. He just like to do this, like I would like to make a horror movie as a regisor. You do what you like, also why not get some money from what you like if is possible? I still think he's a nice guy, and also I met some of developers who was really pleased to talk with me.
About news, will come soon, as they have. I remember a project by a big company where they gave news every thursday, but in that studio were a lot of developers and in AAAGames are not so more. Not really easy to keep this up. At last, you know that they don't give up and they keep continue hard to make this game.

Oh yes, I also want to add that last some weeks he gave me some advices about something what should I do. Everytime when I'm in a situation like that I'm thinking at him and other people and everything is good.
I won't say more about this, just: I'm sick of idiots. They must be ignored. An idiot is an idiot.
Big respect for what you told me Rotacak.
