Just recently found out about this project and I'm quite excited about it. I'm big fan of Moo2 and space genre in general, and I've been searching for a while for a interesting game project to contribute, this seems just perfect
So, I'm 23yo, located Helsinki/Finland.
Second year student 3d-graph/virtual design on Evtek institute of Art and design.
Once I get some picture of current state of project, how it's organised and what is currently needed, I'll contribute to graphs, and to brainstorming
//edit - just felt like saying this
Immersion is the issue I take most personally with freeorion project. As we have lots of capable people in every area of project, and without any intention to step on anyone's toes, I keep close eye to each aspect regarding Immersion. It was what I thought to be biggest failure of MOO3, so I want to be certain that it wouldnt happen again. (as if I had any doubts
) I believe I can be for some help as I have experience regarding storytelling and graphics, though there certainly are people more experienced than myself.
