    It's still January and your goals for this year should still be fresh in your head. What are you planning for this year?


    As for me, it's something serious. The past years it was something small, but this year I'll be attempting to joining the military for the US Army. In order to do that however I need to gain a lot of weight. The minimum for my height is 136 lbs. I'm currently 112 lbs. I'm now on a strict diet, and will hopefully be 136 lbs by February. This month I'm just matching the calorie intake I need which is 3k+ calories a day. Next month I'll be introducing a workout plan.

    Other than that, I have huge plans for this site, but sadly at some point I will be away for 9 weeks straight, internetless, and technologiless. Other than that, I will be turning this away from a simple forum, and hopefully adding XenForo to the site, allowing for a seamless transition into the Number One Free Addon site for FaceRig! As well as an amazing off community of FaceRig :)

    This year I'm trying to finish my school and get a good job in the IT / system-management branch.

    Next to that I'll try to keep on working on personal projects and looking into how to make (more) content for FaceRig.

    Oh and if you ever need other staff, for example during your time off, feel free to ask, I have quite a bit of experience with managing forums, both on a moderator as an administrator level (user-side / forum-software-side).

    For me this year got to make my demo reel and hopefully find a job, and maybe make a couple things for this community.

    Also willing to be staff if you need it.

    My goals this year is to successfully complete my degree in programming. I also keep putting off my hobby of learning Russian for a few years now.
    And a few more things I want to learn is 3d modeling and continue to practice my graphic design.

    I'm going to lose some weight and get into shape, obviously for health reasons but also I would like to try out for American Ninja Warrior. It's too late for that this year as I'm no where near in shape for it and they're already taking submissions, but I'm hoping to be ready to apply next year.

    I want to improve my artistic skills, particularly drawing and coloring. It's been something I've been wanting to do for a long time but never stuck with it long enough to see results. I'm starting to improve, but have a long ways to go still to get to the point I'd like to reach. I'm also considering learning 3d modeling so I can make things for FaceRig and for SOE's Player Studio for EQNext.

    I don't have complete control over this one, but my main goal for this year is to become a successful game streamer and blogger. I'm putting a lot of work into getting things ready for when I'll start streaming and into my site, but ultimately it'll depend on people finding me entertaining to watch my stream and/or read my blog for if I can make a living off it or not.

    @Xyphien o-o you are so light...
    Good luck with your goals, mate

    @Fate I wish you all the luck for getting to American Ninja Warrior next year. That is brutal, haha...
    When I move to America (personal reasons), I'll likely try out for it myself some day.


    Personally, I have a few goals in mind.

    * Fitness/Weight Loss

    The first of them, is to lose weight and get in shape. Been putting it off for a YEAR now,
    and it's time I dropped some of my obligations and put more focus on my personal health.
    I started off at 80kg (176lbs) and am now 77kg (169~170). My goal is 65kg (143lbs)

    As a result, I've cut down a LOT on my unnecessary eating, eat far less meat, and more
    fruit and vegetables. I also cut down a LOT on soft drinks and chocolates. I literally used
    to go through about 1 litre (0.26 gallons) every day, so.. yeah. That had to stop.

    As a stretch goal, I plan to drop meat entirely (except Bacon). A bonus, though, is that
    I never really ENJOYED meat in the first place, so it's no real loss to me.

    * Job/Game Development/3D

    For the last year, I've also been trying to find a job and get started in game development.
    Unfortunately, NEITHER have treated me well at all. As far as jobs go, it's a catch-22
    situation.... Everyone in my field of work wants someone with 3~5+ years experience.
    BUT, to get experience, you need to work in the first place. I'm actually having to resort
    to sending a message to my old teacher to take her up on a proposal she gave me last
    year, to assist in teaching a few of her lessons. It'd give me something to do, and count
    as volunteer work in ICT, which is always nice to have on your CV/Resume

    As far as Game Development goes, I was making progress there, but we never got
    out of the early prototyping/design phase, and could never got a 3D modeler to make
    any temporary work for the game so we could alpha test anything. Most of the work I
    did was lost when my computer died, however, and it was only me and the programmer
    working on it at the time. Since then, the project has been scrapped and it's back to the
    drawing boards =/ ...

    SO, I'm gonna need to rethink my approach. As a result, I'm planning to learn to do 3D work
    myself, so that I can do all of the prototyping myself and we can go ahead without anyone
    on that post, until we have something presentable enough TO get someone willing to do it.

    This also effects my prospects with FaceRIG. I plan to use any 3D experience I gain to
    also work on some FaceRIG stuff in my spare time. While FaceRIG isn't my main goal for this,
    it could be worked into my plans (I plan to get good enough to do 3D work for my own games
    and do character commissions in the Furry community, which is a relatively untapped market)


    That's about it, really. I could go on longer, but I've had this page idling for over an hour now..
    So yeah, I think I should post now XD

    @TrueChaoS That catch 22 of needing 3+ years is all ways bad for people like me who have none.

    What kinda game where you trying to make?

    The 3d work is there in the Fandom just not many want to pay the prices.

    @Koda I know, right? =/ ... It's hard enough finding a job in general near where
    I live, even if you exclude the experience requirement.

    We were planning work for a puzzle/platformer game, which took notes from
    Bullet Hell genre games, Pacman, and a few other things. Too bad it never
    got further than the design phase, eh?

    Also, agreed. And that's what I mean by "relatively untapped". While it's there,
    no one cares. It's too expensive, especially for the quality some people make
    for the charges... haha. Quite frankly, some of the more popular people are
    REALLY not as good as people make them out to be.

    I've only got one major and possibly a couple of minor goals. I'd like to get a job, and of course lose weight. Might get another pet as well.


    *Edit: I'd also like to improve my artistic abilities. <- Forgot about this one, had to dig out a list that a family member wanted made.

    Awesome :D In about 6 months I'll have a military 'degree' in being an IT Specialist, which is just about every computer class you could think of crammed into one 6 month class.

    1) Definitly gonna learn some more advanced programming yet again, those stupid octrees always give me trouble.
    2) Do research and possibly take contact with people who might hire me when i graduate school next year.
    3) Make sure that i get a new laptop before winter..... (scratch that, it's pretty much already winter over here).
    4) Actually make my Game project "ElectroHearth" a playable game.... playing around with the UDP holepunching is gonna be fun.
    5) Gonna cut down on the excessive amounts of energydrinks i drink (~1.7 energy drinks a day), gonna start with tea instead.
    6) Work harder

    One of my goals for the year is to get facerig. I'm pretty sure that's not the kind of goal your asking for, but it's one of my goals.

    Currently working with a group of people on a game, which we will hopefully be able to release next year..
    Also trying to get a job for Grinding Gear Games (the guys who make Path of Exile) but so far I've only had silence in return.
    Just thought I'd share an update on my progress with getting into game development >>
