New site layout/new information! - by lithium
| 21:44 |


Hold onto your suspenders fellow bloodites heeeeere's Lithium!

Bout 2 days ago i resigned from PlanetBlood. Why? Because I wanted to work on this. "Fake resigning" was the only way how I could get work done on the site and not worry about mailbags, fan-mail, the 6 mails of "Blood-Lines" letters in my inbox, and general spam. While I was "temporaily gone" I'd like to thank you, the Blood community for the concern and fine letters you wrote me. Wish there was a more "subtle" way of doing it but it's all for drama! Hell, not even Reactor and Infern0 knew about it and that's what I wanted. So anyways, it's Friday the 13th and SURPRISE! Lithium's back and here to stay. But before I go into the fine details of the new changes I gotta thank a few people:

-Control-Z for the awsome info you let me use from your site for Blood 1. -Todd Northcut from GameSpy network for helping me out with this little "scam" -Hypnos, from gamedesign.net for "giving me an idea" for doing this *wink* -Wolf for the awsome screenshots he sent in (and as you can see, I am using them. Good for something besides pretty eyecandy huh Wolf?)

Now onto the specifics. Changed, a few of the images of the site to depict more of a Blood 1 feel. Not much to the design, but best I could do before I started soing nuts and e-mailing the web-dudes at GameSpy for an "actual" redesign. esides, why do we need to be like all the other Planet sites? We got an original design that suits the theme. I'm sure everyone agrees to this. Blood 1 section totally re-done. Check it out. Added a link in the Blood 2 section for DEdit and Blood 2 editing. Right now, it's a link to PlanetShogo's DEdit site but I promise I will be working on an official Blood 2 Tools section due to popular demand.

Think that was all? Here's a little more of an announcement that I'm sure all you bloodites were just itching to hear. Currently, I'm attempting to talk with Raven Software and GT Interactive about designing a Blood sequal. So far I got no notice from Infogrames, but I plan to persure this. I'v been working on a load of concept art for this game, and hopefully I can get a publisher (namely, infogrames) for this so it doesn't cost me too much money. If all else fails, I'll just get the Blood licence from GT and produce it an a freely distributed "mod" or even stand-alone game for SoF.

Basically, the press-released title for the sequal that I have in mind is "Welcome to my Nightmare: Blood 3". Originally, I plan on using the Soldier of Fortune game engine (which is basically a modified Quake 2 engine) due to the extreme realism, interactivity, and general BLOOD and GORE I could control. Of course, with all this I do officially plan on designing quite a few weapons namely axes ("heeere's Johnny!"), chainsaws, and molotov cocktails! I don't plan on messing this one up and I can tell you right now what I have planned as the game document, this is not gonna be you "shoot everything till it die" fps. It's not gonna be your "let's find the key" fps. I plan for this to be the ULTAMATE first person HORROR game. That's right, we got the zombies, we got the hands, we got the hedgemaze! Although, I am looking for help on this project and anyone with experiance in coding, QERadiant, or 3D Studio MAX please e-mail me as I could really use the help.

And I'm done. To sum it all up, Lithium's here to stay.

Lithrez.exe /s/t/there must be something easier - by Infern0
| 23:47 |


If you're still using Lithrez.exe, forget it. Winrez features an easy to use two-pane system and v2.2 has the following new features:

What's new in WinRez 2.2:
* 24-Bit PCX View
* 32-Bit DTX View
* Force CAPS options when creating Rez Files. This seems to be needed by older Lith Games such as Shogo.
Vital for any editors out there, download it right now.

Final Curtain - by lithium
| 20:09 |


*cue song Pixies-Where is my Mind*

Well boys and girls, it's time for Lithium to resign as an administator for PlanetBlood. Been fun but too many things have been going on in my life now. Any notes of congradulations, rants, or other comments can be sent to my new e-mail lithy@portalofevil.com.

Been fun, and on that note: good morning, good afternoon, and if I never see you again-good night.

Pardon the short news blurb here. Ya I also thought it would have been longer but I been spending all day writing e-mails and stuff explaining my resignation. I'm sure this will suffice. Bye kiddies!

This time round it's Planet Baldur's Gate, which is in fact BG Chronicles in disguise - but what a disguise!

The relaunch has oodles of information for all you 'knowledge is power' freaks out there, as well as a launch contest, which you'd be a fool not to enter.
