What seems fancy to me
First of, good day to all of you. Tis been a long while since I posted anything here, so I wanted to kinda give you all an idea of what I've  been up to, and what's gonna come in the future.

To be honest, things have been quite... awkward in the last months, specially since I got into college three months ago. But, of course, things started to get weird way before that. In my last entry -september 2012-, I mentioned a charity trip... well, it didn't go as planned. Let's just say I had to do something disgusting. Dear lord...

That aside, I've been getting more and more into modding lately, specially in Mount and Blade: Napoleonic Wars. I've left the BG2 dev team and started working freelance for various mods, such as La Belle Alliance and the War of 1812. That, and I've got myself my own little modding corner in the Flying Squirrel Entertainment forums, called "Mr. Kochi's Skin Warehouse" (…. I've uploaded quite a few British reskins in there, featuring some of the famous, or 'darkest' regiments in the British Peninsular Army, such as the 28th Gloucestershire, the 41st Regiment of Foot and the 82nd "Prince of Wales' Own Volunteers".



In other news, I'm now taking bagpipe lessons. Not Scottish, but Asturian bagpipes, one of the many kinds of Spanish-Celt bagpipes out there. Blasted thing only has 12 notes, and although it looks easy, it's a pain to play. But I adore it! Pity it's too damned noisy to practice at home (had to get a custom made flute to practice), and too bloody expensive to buy my own (800 euros, plus shipping it from Spain).

And, even if I wanted to buy the bagpipe, even if I had the money to do so, I have other priorities for money spending. I -finally- managed to find and sign up in a Napoleonic reenactment group, and since March 16th, I've been marching around in a fancy Spanish uniform, holding a Brown Bess and getting lots of cramps in my arms. Blasted musket is heavy.

Well, that wraps up all I've been doing so far. Right now I'm trying to port NW's models and textures into Garry's Mod, so expect more screenshot stuff quite soon.

  • Drinking: Oh glorious British Tea, sir!


koach2's Profile Picture
If i should fall to rise no more,
As many comrades did before,
Then ask the fifes and drums to play,
Over the hills and far away...

Born a few centuries too late, i dedicate my life to studying and analysing 18th and 19th century warfare, weapons and tactics, as well as recreate them in video games.

I utterly adore everything related to the revolutionary/Napoleonic eras, and i love muskets. i really admire those who stood still in a line while their enemies discharged volleys of musket fire at them. the bravery, the courage, the balls. now things changed... now wars lost the charm they used to have. now we've got bombs capable of slaughtering millions of people in seconds... before the best you had was a howitzer shell that maybe exploded close to your enemy. melee was key for wining.

i admire those who fought and died within the ranks and files, and that's why i base my art on them.
