    Cool I've made my decision! And, some good news for most.

    Scared you for a second didn't I?

    I want to be able to offer more to the game than simply guidance and directing the team, marketing etc. For a very long time I've always wanted to learn a programming language, however, I've always been more of an artist. My grandmother was a great painter and portrait artist and my mother is as well which ultimately passed the drawing skill down to me. I've always been able to duplicate any comic book page with a pen or pencil since grade school, I just never really went anywhere with it.

    Well, I've decided that I'm going to begin learning 3D Modeling and will be starting by using Zbrush. I already know Photoshop quite well so the two combined, I should be able to create some really good assets for Greed Monger. How will I be going about this? Well, last night my wife and I went to a comedy show and afterwards we visited the bookstore where I bought 3 3D art magazines where I found an ad for a site called www.Digital-Tutors.com. So I've joined the site, got a Wacom Tablet and am hitting the tutorials starting with the 1st one on up. I will be taking the tests etc.

    I will post my completed projects here so everyone will be able to watch my progress and MAYBE, it will inspire some of you to follow my lead and learn something new!

    Also, we have made the decision to add another 3,000 parcels of player own able land into the game prior to launch. We may not open the flood gates to them prior to April though, but we'll see.

    That's all, just thought I'd share something new.

    That's awesome man, i'm a huge fan of continued education. I may very well check that site out as well as I have "some" artistic talent in me, not alot, but some.

    Best of luck on your new journey.

    Also VERY excited to hear about more parcels being added! I been sweating bullets every since I missed KS

    Hi Jason, good choice, it's always a great satisfaction to get new knowledge for something you like ^^
    I hope you will have enough time to focus on this as well

    Another 3000 parcels sounds good, but the proportion of ownable land / wild land will remain the same?

    Ratio of player owned land to wild land will always remain.

    Better to hold the land IMO for as long as you can or it will be the same thing as we have now.

    Good for you, I've always wanted to learn programming but haven't gotten around to it yet.
