So whatever happened to the Nuclearbox?
 
I've been in a self-inflicted coma for the past few years and have only just clawed my way out of the depths of hellfire and damnation to see it has gone nuclear and vanished on me. Pray tell - did anyone survive?

Sadbloke.

Born again Christian :innocent:

(joke)

:single fuck:

But seriously where is everyone?

(just don't ask me where I've been as it's a deeply unsatisfying answer. One where I proceed to hit you over the head with a large object forcing you to vow never to ask again)

Aux let the domain expire, as the site was generally inactive, I think. It's been a while. Maybe years. I forget.

(DGH says hi.)

Heh, I remember the site taking a collective nosedive after those terrorist attacks on 9/11. Members dropped like flies each week :D Some good ones too unfortunately :(

Still it had a good run.

Wow, the real Count Floyd? that's awesome! Heyyo man, welcome to bots united! :D

Nuclearbox is gone and done for.. not sure why, but it was in a horrible state.. people on the forums flamed, so I left, and a few months later I decided to check on it and it was just gone.. that was at least a few years ago.

But Count Floyd, I remember hearing after the start of work on PodBot v3.0, you were hired to make the CZ bot, but then that got transferred to TurtleRock Studios and your bot work was lost, is that true? I remember hearing some great previews of your work.

Then last I heard you were making the AI for a cowboy and indians rts, is that true as well??

Just wondering what one of the original CS bot geniuses is up to is all. :P

Re: So whatever happened to the Nuclearbox?
 
Thanks guys & hi to all the others who still remember me.
I've been to troublesome times a lot the past years, the short version here:
Yes, my work on the CZ Bot was given away when Gearbox transfered the Project. Dunno if anything was used, I doubt it however seeing that CZ was released in a very different state to the one @ gbx.
Yes, I've been working on America 2, a western rts game but I ran out of luck again when the publisher decided to close his game development section :(
In between both of my parents got very sick and I was quickly running out of money almost becoming homeless & living from social security.
The past 4 years (is it really that long before?) I've been recovering and had lots of good times too when I met my current girlfriend and quit all the game biz stuff. Since then I became a (boring?) software engineer programming e-government software in C# & ASP.net which is more fun than you might believe. I've never lost interest in AI and especially Bots so I've always been lurking around, following this forum as well but most of the time I've been too lazy or short on time to register here and add my 5 cents. Every now & then I even extended my FPS AI Engine which I'm still working on after these years, just doing this for the fun of it and of course because I believe that a lot of nowadays bots are still as dumb as 1 century ago :)
Just ask me what I implemented so far to fill up a huge feature list, hehe...
Well, so much about me...what are you guys up to nowadays ?
What I read is that:
Johannes (still rowing along in Finland?)
Pierre (creating his own company with his bros?)
Stefan (being a software engineer ?)
William (still being Consultant?)

other guys I lost track off...

PS: Just had quite a funny feeling in my stomach posting this, 1st time sinc e 5 or 6 years ? Damn...I'm still bad at social networking!
