Hi all,

I just wanted to make a quick announcement that I am no longer with the FC2 team. I've had a great time with everyone both on the team and in the community, however it was time for a new adventure. As of now, I am simply another fan sitting on the sidelines waiting for this great game to finally release, so rest assured that you aren't completely rid of me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif

Please give a warm welcome to Arres. He will now be your dev team point of contact on these fine forum so...welcome to the fun Arres!

Thanks for everything you have done for the FC community Kimi, both publicly and behind the scenes. Good luck with your new role!

Arres, I hope she has left you holding some HD footage ready for release?
(Of the game not her packing!)

Thanks kimi_ and CuZ, and hello to the community! I've been following the boards closely so hopefully I'll get to know everyone before too long.

I know the dev team is itching to release more information on Far Cry 2 so I'll be delivering that to everyone before long!

What's with all the solemnity? I didn't read any bad news. Good luck with wherever you're headed, Kimi, and change your title, you're just a lowly commoner like us now http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. And g'day, Arres, I hope to see you about kinda regularly. So you've got Kimi's job now, or what's your role?

Indeed...
It took me a while to work out why we never saw shots of Kimi below the waist on here or 1UP...

I wish him that your next project be so big and ambitious as Far Cry 2. I am sure of the fact that the creative part of the game is finished if you go away, now the more difficult part , the game polished without bugs in the PCs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Come to think of it, I have not seen Riz and ggoi on at the same time. hmmm. Hows that for a conspiracy.

Kimi, you have been here since I joined the forums back in 04 and I expect to see you around in years to come. I hope you are getting to do stuff you enjoy.

Thanks again for your help and we will always have Hawaii.

Maybe both!
I guess it depends on the workload you can handle...
Items to be discussed over lunch:
-setting up a hosting & forums server for the Farcry2 mappers&modders community
(UBIsoft should be allowed to market Extended Play DVD's with hosted maps&mods!)

-designing a copy of the Ngorongoro (http://www.tanzaniaodyssey.com/maps-of-tanzania-game-reserves--islands/map-of-the-ngorongoro-crater.htm) -crater (http://www.tanzaniaodyssey.com/northern-tanzania-safaris/ngorongoro-crater.htm) on the Farcry2-map,as an ideal working space
for custom maps and mods.

-the crater-inside should only be accessed through numerous caves (with lascaux-murals,syphons,mutants?),
abandonned silver-,gems- or goldmines etc,
all with (multiple) caldera-outlets to be used as custom-maps starting/spawning points:
at the end of any custom-map one should jump to another custommap-spawningpoint!

-alternative: (difficult) climbing routes to the crater rim,where a player would find a base-jumping chute:
jumping into the crater gives a free fall (accessory:a flying-suite!),
hitting the f-key should load a custom map,that opens with player hanging on the chute,
descending the crater for new adventures.....

-on the crater-rim there should be a lodge as a homebase (http://www.tanzaniaodyssey.com/lodges_info/ngorongoro-crater-lodge.htm) for mappers,modders&testers,
with special guest rooms for farcry legends like Jimbocry,MadMurdock,GGoi,sixguns,johns1234...and then some....
I would suggest installing CaptLong as MasterChef,so there's always an LUA-scripting expert inhouse....
(He's probably also pretty good in AI ,so if he demands implementation of a bag of rocks&machete in FC2:humour him....)

-design a NEW interface for ALL saving points:
a map (maybe with partial maps,like the crater!) where they appear on their map-location.

-keep a sharp lookout on Farcry2 resources-greed:
make shure it NEVER drops below 30 FPS on the max AGP-system (1680x1050):
ATI X1950 Pro 256Mb,1 Giga SysMem,3.0 GHz Pentium
(make a smart use of my 2 GB usb2 stick for texture prefetch etc.?)

-leave server-based MP to RedStorm,instead:
create 10-channel P2P coop,and multi-dito LanParty services

-like the French say:
"Cést pas fini avant que la chanteuse voloptueuse va chanter"
The Fat Lady here is Farcry3:to be released mid 2011!
with: full dx10.5 support,full 1950x1200 HDTV support,serverbased MP,
worldwide missions&Google maps,etc.etc!

"L'epreuve cést manger le dessert flambée"!
