  1. Yesterday
  2. Very first screenshot from my 4th level. Lots to do here yet.
  3. Last week
  4. A couple of minor tweaks. I think the wings of the dove were too close to the edge of the image for printing purposes. Don't think you'll notice the others.
  5. This works for me. I should finish my final proof read today.
  6. With the final drafts of Paradise and Autism and the Truth now included in the third book of my Walking by the Spirit trilogy, I've decided to publish it in hard copy, both paperback and hardback. I'm on the final proof read of Let There Be Light before sending the manuscript off. This is time consuming work, and expensive as I'm paying for it, so be patient, it may take some time before the book is available in hard copy. I've also been working on the cover artwork and thought you might like to see my design. The photo was taken on Brora beach with the Fuji 16-55mm, an absolutely gorgeous lens, and it was in fact the very first photo I ever took with that lens, so this cover design is very special to me. The dove obviously represents the gift of holy spirit and the energising of that spiritual power by speaking in tongues which brings light into our dark world. I'll start work on the text tomorrow.
  7. Hello mate, really good to see you again. I'm taking my time with this 4th level. I'm quietly pleased with it and I think it's going to turn out just fine. I'll post some screen shots when I get the first area built, but it's huge so it will take some time. Yeah, I'd recommend playing through my 3 levels to give you a feel for the game before starting your level. I have one secret in each level, a secret skull. I'm also only using the bog standard TR4 animations, no new animations at all, and I like how it plays. You will see what I mean when you play the levels through. It just plays so well without all the fancy stuff.
  8. Hows the next level coming? I am feeling much better... Knock on wood right!! So I will start building my first level real soon...I started playing your levels about a month or two back... I think I will start over and try and get through them all before I start!! I have some good ideas for some outdoor areas...Love you George!! Todd....

    Spring in Brora

    Nothing says spring is here quite like lambs scampering around in the fields and hatched birds eggs lying on the ground. Not sure if this is blackbird, thrush, robin or starling, but whatever it is, it has hatched and there is new life in the world.

    Brochs Chat

    True story. A week later and my life is changing yet again. Not only am I not going to be photographing any more brochs, I'm selling all my camera gear. I'm keeping my X100V, but the rest is being sold. Job done. Never once occurred to me that the brochs was a job that had an ending until after I crossed the finish line.
  13. I'm trying to get a waterfall texture to animate. Done it a thousand times but can't get it to work in my new level. Full Rotate, MaxFPS, uvrotate 8, applied double sided transparent, small room off to the side with texture applied normally. Doesn't animate in game. Anyone help? Would putting UNrotate into the script fix it? I have waterfalls working in the first level without scripts. Perplexed.
  14. We have just spent another couple of days at Kildonan. Here is our equipment ready for the hike into the hills, and my gold.
  15. This is now published as part of my class, Let there be Light.

    Brochs Chat

    Well, there is a funny thing. Living with the Picts for 16 years and photographing their brochs has been quite an adventure. However, now that I've pieced it all together, understand the Picts, their brochs and their way of life, have found the site of the battle of Mons Graupius, and finally understand what paradise actually is, I've lost interest in photographing any more brochs because the job is finished. It's done. I'm going to sort out the website and continue with the reconstruction of what's already there, but I don't think I'm going to bother photographing any more brochs because my job is finished. It's time to move on and find something else.
  19. And yes, we did pan a little gold
  20. A friend of mine from school days decided recently to give gold panning a try, so I've advised on equipment and he has spent a few weeks preparing and this weekend I took him gold panning at Kildonan, site of the Scottish Gold rush of 1869. We packed the car, drove up to Baile an Or, and walked over the hill to the corner by the sheep circle. I chose that spot as it's perfect as a gold panning nursery or kindergarten to introduce people to gold panning. We spent two days working the gravels by the bank, and we did get some gold. It was also a good opportunity for me to check out all my gear as I've not been gold panning for years. It was good to get my head underwater again and do a little sniping. Here are a few piccies from the day.
  21. I'm still not feeling well enough... Hope to get back with this soon!!

    Brora photos

    Spring is here for sure, and Brora is starting to warm up nicely. No green in the trees yet, but the buds are about to open.
  23. My 4th level is underway. I've built the first area, the scripts are done, and the jump from lvl 3 works. I'm good to go.

    The Achness Falls at Rosehall. Sutherland is such a beautiful place. I must go back there sometime and see if I can get some salmon photos.

    Managed this nice photo of a Chaffinch while up the Strath of Kildonan last week. I was using my 200mm @ f/2. I really should make an effort to get out more with that lens. It just takes gorgeous photos.

    Brora photos

    Dramatic clouds over Brora beach today, great walk. No icy touch in the wind either. Summer is not far away.
  28. The Brora War Memorial is a baronial styled monument which was built around 1920 to commemorate those who gave their lives during WW1. Later the names of those who sacrificed their lives during WW2 were added and more recently, the Gulf War. A distinctive Brora landmark, it also includes a clock that chimes out in unison with Big Ben. As befits such a splendid memorial to those who sacrificed their lives so that we could live ours in the freedoms we enjoy today, it holds a prominent position in the heart of Brora on the banks of the river as well as in the hearts of the villagers. The names of the servicemen inscribed on the memorial can be seen below. Quite where the idea for the memorial came from has been a subject of debate for many years, but perhaps this photograph and insight shared by Adam Brown may shed light on its design. I think the ruined Bethune Clock Tower may have been an inspiration for this memorial. The 5th Bn Seaforth Highlanders defended Bethune in April 1918 as part of the 51st Highland Division and would have been familiar with this landmark. -Adam Brown
