Re: Kojima: A Thriller

You are going for novel length! Well that sounds great. Hmmm from what I've read, Crichton rewrites material he is working on as he goes. I personally don't like to do it, barring minor insertions and such. You bring up a point: we seem to be following very few characters so far. So maybe something ...

Drac Codes: Getting into C# programming again!

Hey all. I'll start by saying, that I took two years of programming in high school. Learning Visual Basic .NET and Visual C# .NET informed my original entry into scripting in Trespasser. Strings, bools, floats, etc. But after those two years I never went back to C# or any other language. Recently I ...

Re: Kojima: A Thriller

Great set-up. Even more JP/Tres references, ruins on an island with later facilities built, over multiple generations. I find the same difficulty here in wonder which of Crichton's descriptions are for IRL and which are cleverly made up by him. Security cameras remind me of TLW novel. A slight feeli...

Re: RETURN TO THE LOST WORLD

FIELD SYSTEMS Levine walked up to the door of Mobile Field Systems, rang the buzzer. He waited to hear the ex-engineering-teacher's voice on the intercom, but within moments the door opened. Thorne stood in the doorway briefly looking Levine up and down. "Just like old times." "What? ...

Re: Kojima: A Thriller

Liking it still. I enjoyed the accidental paint moment. “A couple days ago, something was found on the beach here, right?” “Oh, yeah.” She turned, and pointed to a spot near the concrete pier. The fisherman had left by now. “They say the Americans took it,” she said. “They had barriers and soldiers ...

Re: RETURN TO THE LOST WORLD

Hmmm. My understanding of Isla Sorna by the end of the novel, is not that it is seen to be soon doomed, but that the adults of the various species are dying early due to widespread DX infection. This creates a larger-than-expected food source, which is how the carnivores are surviving. Sort of an un...

Re: Kojima: A Thriller

Am actually reading Micro again right now, almost finished. I've been trying to figure out where the other writer came in to finish the book. At about the time Rourke's Redoubt gets burned, action and descriptions seem to be a bit sped-up and less elaborated on. I have a sort of guess that the step-...

Re: Kojima: A Thriller

Liking it... He had brown hair, similar in length to Reyes' hair except it was parted in the middle. In front of him, one of his friends shoved his face in the camera, Due to the mention of Reyes again, the following use of "him" and "his" seems potentially unclear, even though i...

Re: RETURN TO THE LOST WORLD

Thanks Rebel. :pirate: I actually just finished a book full of interviews with Michael Crichton from throughout his life. Got a pretty good view on what he is like. Didn't realize some of his work was so controvisial; he seemed both interested and tired of this part at different times. Also didn't r...

Re: New Weapon (GatlingGun)

Another great toy! I was pleased to be able to move it backward while it was careening forward. In the flying examples the rotate got annoying sometimes. How did you get the gun to rotate on the vehicle? I thought objects with a magnet dependency couldn't both move around and have the magnet have a ...

RETURN TO THE LOST WORLD

Started a few weeks ago, I have a short(ish?) story I am writing, attempting to emulate Crichton in some ways, which is a direct sequel to his second Jurassic Park novel The Lost World . I guess I'll withhold a description of the plot as thought out so far, and start with the first chapter. But in g...

Re: New Weapon (GatlingGun)

All these new scripted models and things have me wondering, if there is some way mounted guns can be improved. I remember lots of discussions over the years how many people say mounted guns don't work in Tres. I find them a fun challenge, that can work in the right cases... Still, I wonder if there'...

Re: Kojima: A Thriller

Drac is in the middle of reading. That, and stream trains. Hmmm stream trains... heheh. ...Great chapter. Still enjoying the technical details. Didn't expect the chickenosaurus element. Now as the reader I am wondering if that's what it is or not. Also, the spam thing was mentioned in Micro, wonder...

Re: New Weapon (GatlingGun)

Gatling gun looks nice... It said 1974? I guess they didn't have it in the civl war. Did it make its way into WWI? Drac didn't finish the vid.
