GTA:Liberty City Website
Posted 05 January 2005 - 02:51 PM
Anyway. I'm not sure about this offer. Demarest was always very strict about this (GTAForums) being our home. But it may be nice for the team to have one place that they could upload little files. So I'll leave this decision up to the team in general. If enough people feel the need for it, then we'll defintely go along with it.
So what does everybody else think about this?
Oh, and thanks a bunch for the offer GT. I really do appreciate it.

I personally think its a good idea, most of the discoussion and stuff would still happen here, it would just serve as a 'after much deliberation, THIS is what we have decided/ come up with/ whatever'
With the announcemets topics here, things may get announced but get buried, so people go 'wheres x?', because it fell pages back and not many people search fully (and the search only returns topics, not specific posts).
It would also be able to link here, so you could put 'after much deliberation, THIS is what we have decided/ come up with/ whatever, see that HERE' etc.
Some people may think it will take away from this, but as an announcements and general news source, it serves it purpose better, wheras GTAF serves discussion, support, minor announcements better.
In conclusion: I say yes.

With a website added, it's like having two homes. It will be hard to keep them both sync-ed with respect to the information.
I'm in favour if it would just be a info-page with general info, and a download section. To have one common download place, where all contributors can upoad their stuff. But it should not contain any work-in-progress, latest news or discussion stuff.

I like it, it would be nice to have somewhere else for me to do some minor tweaks without everyone giving opinions.
I actually have some to show, but that will come in a bit.
I like the site though

|The only discussion which you may want to have would be your own small private forum which is away from the general public just between the LC team. All discussion bar the private forum (if you wanted one) would take place here where it should be. The site is just an easier place to keep people updated with where the mod is at. I can see your point Patrick but im not trying to take this away from GTAForums.com.|
but the whole concept of GTA LC has always been a completly open project where anyone can contribute.
Although I like the idea of news with what's going on and all interesting info to let people see how LC is developing.
What would be very useful is a place to download the latest versions of specific files (e.g. there are always a load of main.scm's floating around) if we could have these with descriptions of what they contain it would be useful.

The forums here will always be the livelyhood of the mod, where all the work gets done.
PS. As for the "Too many cooks in the soup" comment(s), I've been genuinely surprised by the lack of major conflict we've had around here.

Is a really good idea, people from the team would be free to upload their files easilly and noobs would find updates more quickly. This forum would stay here.

Especially the central download centre, where regular contributors can store their files would be very usefull.

Wouldnt be possible that only mod team people have the upload feature?

Like the BetaEnforcments mod and stuff like that...
So you can get downloads (official and som more unofficial, but made for GTA:LC)
For discution's and questions jou most come here...
Like the idee and its better for the publication!
Sorry for my bad english, I am working on it...

|Also, Y_Less has made a similar offer to the one that GT-1 made earlier. So we still have some options for a website. Hell I could host it too if I wanted to. So if some other team members really want a website, we can still do it.|
I've got a few gbs of bandwidth spare kicking around on gtaconnection.net if anyone needs a host, that's not a problem.
