All right, let me get this out of the way; this is half a guilt thread. I feel partly responsible for ditching out of my part, but I had family issues I had to deal with at the time. Anyways...
 
What happened to CarbonFest?
 
I'm going over it in my mind and it seems like we had a perfect plan. Everyone had their part, everyone was willing to do their part. Yet no one did anything. We never got prizes ready, never got the finalized participant list, never got all the maps ready. Then we just kind of forgot about it.
 
I'm looking back on it and it just seems like everyone here is scared of commitment (including me). Virtually all of the people signed on are gone. In fact, when was the last time anyone saw Apophis on the forums?
 
CarbonFest is set in the middle of this month. We have a bit of time left to salvage it, if anyone wants to. If anyone wants to, we can try and see if we can do a bit more and get about half of what we planned going. But I don't know if we can.

Yeah, I guess we did forget it...
 
About the rewards, how would we get them? Not like you can just gift them an item. You can't gift credits either.

That would be something I guess we would be able to ask CT for if the event was big/good enough. Now, I don't think it would be able to get rewards available. If we were to actually do CarbonFest it would be just for the sake of getting together.

Yeah, the only time I see people like Nattyfrank, Cyber, TGG, U2M, lagging, and others together in a game is around 11:00pm (EST) on nights when I can't find the TV remote.
I used to sometimes see Apophis in a game around 4:00pm.

lagging, my hopes exactly. The event was originally planned for July 8th-19th but I don't think that is necessary anymore. We can pick a date to just do whatever, maybe use some of the old maps we (mostly pancakes) designed and see how they work.

Yes this was what i have been told. It was in June that all the mods and i would be beta testing all the events to check for bugs and/or modifications. It seemed that Apophis loved my idea... Why would he ditch it? I know he liked it becuase he was, at the time, the only mod that would help, or could help. Something must fave come up... a computer break down, summer projects, etc. The last about week and a half, my comp was down. We need to let CT know we need this back... many people here on the forum are great desginers. We have great minds in computer programing. Everyone on this sight is good at something. Even if that thing is being annoying. Our designers can put up advertisments, game developers, well, develop more for the game. and our annoying people, they can annoy somebody to try it untill they give XD. Fat, i was wondering the same think and have sent multiple emails to Apophis. No reply. Im am sad that one of my ideas almost died. Let's bring it back.
 
 
U2M
 
(P.S. Fat, you are a saint... YOU SAVED MY IDEA.... at least up to this point, right now... as we are speaking...)

Willing to take up Apop's job with organizing CarbonFest to a degree. Let's get all the CarbonFest worlds together, get a few event ideas, get a date and see who comes up and work from there. That's about all we can do, but you know what, as long as we can get together it hopefully would be worth it.
 
I would perfer the date to be delayed a bit. I need a new computer, but I'm so close to getting one. Every 5 days Best Buy has a laptop as a deal of the day, and put in the shipping time I should have a new, Carbon Combat running computer by the middle of the month.

Make sure to have a good graphics card, the integrated (built in) ones aren't usually that great so look for computers with a good graphics cards. If it doesn't don't have a good graphics card, buy and install a compatible one.
 
If you have any questions , google. =)

I would probably all think about this laptop stuff if I wasn't waiting on a BestBuy deal of the day. I'm pretty sure they post a laptop every 5 days, so if I were to make a deadline (assuming small shipping delay) I would need to get the first laptop I can. In fact I'm only getting a laptop because I'm sick of waiting for a desktop to come up, my first choice.
 
Can't wait to come back into CC, it will be like coming out of a box you have lived in for a year. In fact I got an invitation to use some of my old Blender skills to model for a guy's game. I'm gonna be so rusty though...parents don't like me downloading stuff (such as modeling programs, and decent anti-virus). Woo, another thing I won't have to worry about anymore!
 
Anyways, lets fire out some dates and see if anyone has stuff planned. Are we good for the 15th?
