In search of content

Postby cork279 » December 24th, 2011, 3:51 pm

As some of you may know, I'm making a site solely for content made with or for Sandbox, Cube 2, and other Cube-derivitive programs. This is to make a more organised place to see games, or anything else related to the engine.

I am writing this thread to ask the Sandbox community to help build it up!
As of now, it's puny. Just a few games, utilities, nothing more (they're awesome games, don't get me wrong). But you can all help.
Post here, on this thread any tutorials, resources (such as texture packs) you'd like me to add.

If you want me to add your game, map or utility; go to my website, or post here in the following format:
FOR A GAME
Game name:
Developer/Dev Team:
Genre:
Kid-Friendly?:
Description:
*Download link:
*Media links (videos [Youtube or ModDB only], images or music):
(**You may also attach any media/downloads [game files] to the email)

FOR UTILITIES
Utility name:
Developer/Dev Team:
Kid-Friendly?:
What it does:
*Download link:
*Media links (videos [Youtube or ModDB only], images or music):
(**You may also attach any media/downloads [game files] to the email)

FOR A MAP
Map name:
Developer/Dev Team:
Genre:
Kid-Friendly?:
Description:
*Download link:
*Media links (videos [Youtube or ModDB only], images or music):
(**You may also attach any media/downloads [game files] to the email)

*Not required, but is recommended
**Unrecommended


Thanks! :D

I'm not adding something yet, but just saying that this is what I think we've really been needing. But you already knew that, probably.

Anyways, some things you could check out (utilities):
-Convert Shots (tga to jpg image converter) http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/TGA_to_JPG_Converter;34634
-Bulk Image Converter (image converter, obviously) http://sourceforge.net/projects/bulkimageconver/
-Lupas Rename (file renamer) http://rename.lupasfreeware.org/
-Photo Resize http://www.rw-designer.com/picture-resize
-ttf2font (font converter for use with Cube 2 engine systems) http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/bloodfrontier/index.php?title=TTF2Font
-VirtualDub (movie editor) http://www.virtualdub.org/

I use all of these for different purposes, I thought maybe others may want to know about them.

@CP - I'll post that all up somewhere on the site.
By resources I meant textures, models and stuff, but I have a place for listing programs too, thanks! :D
Here it is! http://sandverse.tk/index/good_free_programs_you_should_use/0-25

@Tony - Nice! I'll add some of your stuff to the resources page, stated, "by Tony", etc... :D

I have a bunch of skyboxes for folks to use.
By a bunch, I mean... a Bunch, I don't even know how many.
Over the next day or two, I will go through them and try to pick the most usable and post them.

I think it is sensible to only provide a basic set of textures, skyboxes, and such in the basic program distribution.
Else the software release would be bloated, extraneous.
So, a place to find all of the supplemental content is a good thing.

Thanks,
- Tony
