Who am I : I am a Belgian student, and I'm a graphic designer (or at least trying to be ), I am 20 years old and I play video games a lot. Of course one of my favourite is PotC, that I played a few years ago. I wanted to play it again and I discovered that there was a more recent game also made by Akella (AoP 2 : CoaS). I installed and played your mod and it was awesome, I really enjoyed it! I must say good job guys because you really did a good work on this. I spent some time on this forum reading threads about bugs especially (because my game had some issues starting properly ), and I discovered this awesome project that "Hearts of Oak : Conquest of the Seas" is. I really like it, and I am impatient for it to come out. Then I wondered if I could'nt help you. I mean, it would be so exciting in a way, and in the other hand it would really give me an awesome experience. Working on a game, that's something ! I have some skills that might be usefull, but I'm mostly motivated and I really want to learn. So, please let take part in this project, it would be great ! What can I do : I'm a graphic designer, I master vector drawning (Illustrator), and to a lesser extent, page layout (InDesign) and Photoshop more generally. I can also do Logos (that's the funniest part), flyers but I don't see any interest in the developpement of a videogame. I also had an intensive 3D training week with Maya (modeling mostly), wich i really liked. So I know the basics and I am still learning with some tutorials. To be honest that would be the field that I would really love to improve. Things I might be usefull to : - GUI art even though I have no experience in this field, but I'd really enjoy trying it at least. - 3D modeling even if I need to practive before to be able to propose something. - Advertising : doing web banners for example, if ever you need it. Importants points that you must know about me : I'm looking to improve myself, as much as I can, and I learn pretty fast. I love pirates games, and I'd be really happy to participate to this project. Like, really. I am perfectionnist, I love details. And I prefer doing nothing istead of doing a half finished job. I hope I did not miss anything, and thank you for reading me ! PS : As you have probably already seen, my english is not perfect and I'm still learning that language. So PLEASE don't be afraid or embarassed to correct me. I'm not susceptible and it really helps me ! Thanks in advance . This is also an opportunity for me to improve my english skills, wich are really important in this cruel world. Plus, I love this language.
