Overwhelming Frustration

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

You know guys.. Have you ever felt the urge to just say fück everything, let cirumstances unfold as they will, who cares about the outcome? Have you ever experienced a moment where you feel like everything you do, every action has a spotlight on you. If you make a good choice, the spotlight fades into shadow, leaving no one to see the deeds you've done.. If it's a bad choice, the spotlight brightens and the camera zooms just so the world can see the beads of sweat on your face as your expression turns to humiliation? I'm having one of those moments right now and I think it's pretty obvious. Working to create packs used to relax me, they used to make me feel good because i was creating something worthwhile for the public to enjoy. I wanted to create the best product I could possibly deliver and invested countless hours testing, perfecting and working my âss off to ensure that only the best models and sounds came to you. My people, my fans so to speak.. I run into all these snags and obstacles, in real-life and online.. Servers that don't work, they host and fail. Hell, Haunter doesn't even speak with me anymore. He is as his name states, a ghost. He's never hear and my emails to him are responded with cryptic 2 line reponses.. It seems like I'm the only one trying to make Counter-Life anything better then it is anymore... I'm the one doing tech-support, CL and CLHD related, I'm the one doing this and that......... and my point is... I'm NOT even a MEMBER of the CL team. What do I owe them? Absolutely nothing.. It's been this way since the beginning. No server, no reliable hosting service to count on - I work for hours and hours and fücking hours on these packs of my own free time and in the end, it doesn't even seem worth it. I've been doing alot of thinking, alot of time management thinking..I don't think I'm going to have time to continue working on projects like these anymore. The time I waste doing it I could be spending it with friends and family.. I don't mean to sound like this is a complete waste of time because I've had fun doing it. It's just that the end doesn't justify the means. I mean, honestly - Out of all the people who read my posts, barely anyone actively downloads my packs anyways once they've been released. I spend all this time trying to satisfy the community and the day something is released, people download it or whatever - then there's not one comment on the forums for 3 weeks after. What does that tell me? This has happened at least 3 times thus far with my packs. Can anyone even give me one good reason to continue? A reason that doesn't involve "because your good" It's not about being good, it's about making people happy. Once something's released, no one cares anymore. Instantaniously old news, garbage, yesterdays headline, tomarrows recycle bin. It's not worth it guys... It's just not worth it I don't even know if I'm going to upload this file, I have no place to upload it. AND, if it is indeed uploaded, the link will be stable for about what.. 6 hours before crashing? Then what, 4 people have something that took me 6 1/2 weeks to make? You do the math.. This whole resident Evil, they:Strike pack isn't even realistic.. The zombies, whatever. the same things is going to happen to that pack. Hell, I could spend the next 3 months making the most unchallenged replacement pack ever concieved and in one day it's never talked about again. That and with Half-Life 2 comming out, everyone even half-way interested in my work will forget all about it. It'll be gone, like fücking houdini.. I'm sorry guys, I'm stressed out and not thinking straight.. But this is how I feel, and when you're angry and frustrated, the truth always comes out no matter what the consequences of the words spoken are. At least I've voiced it, not just going on and on developing packs and having the same result happen over and over again. In anycase, I'm sorry - I just have too many things on my mind and not enough time for anything anymore.. And I see no good reason to continue if frustration is the reward for hard work.

    I would like that you come over to my country and have a look. It is currently running a somewhat socialist goverment style, have a look. The hospital pays are covered by the goverment, kinda cool by the way, those 5k surgery's are covered by the goverment and you don't have to pay anything, and the best is that they work properly afterwards. Main problem is that only a few want to become doctors, this has nothing to do with money though, so the ones allready working are pretty much overloaded. So have a look around, I am sure you will see several socialist countries still working, like Norway.

    I'm not dictating to Haunter who is going to be on the staff and who's not; it's not like I have any authority. I'm just stating my opinions, which is both my right and my responsibility, as last I checked we were still officially a democratic society here on this side of the planet.

    Originally posted by HLandin But Sweeper that is not correct. Even in communistic societies there emerges a hiearchy, an elite. In communist societies it just happens to be "the Party," those that are politically connected. These people benefit for the same reason that they benefit in any other society. Both capitalism and communism may have corruption, but they have corruption for the same reason, government. However, what does differ is how much the government can strip away. When the wealth of a nation is "collected" to be used "collectively" this elite (the State) is entrusted with property and wealth of all and can use it for their own personal wealth and influence. Corruption in capitalistic countries does exist but its effect is limited to that which the government can successfully tax away. Because capitalistic countries are general republican or democratic in nature, they can replace governments that in their opinion steal too much. Or, if that proves ineffective to those who have wealth and want to protect it (no matter what form of government), they will leave, legally or illegally and take their wealth with them. This is the essence of the Sovereign Individual (one who can, due to their mobile wealth, purchase their own soverignty). In order to understand this, one must understand the true function of government. It is not to distribute wealth or create equality in wealth (this is a common falacy). The only ones who want redistribution are those without wealth. And as long as those who have wealth can protect it (it is becoming easier as more and more is exchanged electronically), they will demonstrate that. The only function of government is to provide justice and law. Getting back to what I said earlier, in a given government or economic philosophy, there will be those who lose and those gain. And if those who will lose can prevent that by migration, foreign bank accounts, etc., they will continue to do so. Communism may have a seemly equal share, but if there is less to go around, is everyone really better off? But, I respect your opinion, Sweeper. Hey, catch me later and I'll buy you a beer! :m4:
    I'll take it all on in one blast, or maybe two. Lets get started... What will you do in a capitalistic soceity if you or your closest family members get sick and you can't pay for the surgery? Well that is a hell, but in a communistic soceity or socialist for that matter, the goverment owns the hospitals, so they don't run them for profit, hey a hospital is NOT supposed to be a good buisness to get money from, it is an expense post in anyones budget. So in a communistic soceity they will heal you and no money charged. Also, I am not some man of dictator ship, I am in support of multiple parties and democratic control, only thing what will change is what the goverment controls. Hey, let me buy you a shot of Vodka.

    Time to bring out the big guns. Can anyone name a capitalistic country that has had a famine in last 50 years? I can't. If we look at history, though we can see that socialist or communist countries do give us plenty of examples. Before the takeover of the Bolsheveks, Russia was a net food exporter (made more food than required to feed at home, so it sold excess abroad). During the enforcement of collectivism, Russia became a net food importer. Also, privatized lots made up only about 2% of the total farmland of Soviet agruculture but produced about 45% of the total food output. During its green revolution, millions of Chinese starved to death because of lowered levels of food output as a result of lower effeciency. Then there is also the standard of living indexes, although not a perfect measure of wealth they demonstrate the vast income gap between collective and free states. Then there is pollution. The most polluted spot in the world, you guessed it, is in the former Soviet Union. And its not Chernobyl although that is a good example of another point, safety and quality of work. Did you see the movie K-19. It may only be a movie but it effectively demonstrated the unreliability in socialist/communist countries. If you read the book by the Skipper, you will see how true that was. Then there is Hunt for the Red October (the book), a work of ficition but very well researched and put together. Finally, there is Chernobyl. Research confirms that it was an accident waiting to happen (examples: poor construction, poor standards, never fully completed trial tests, poor reactor design that placed little to no value on environmental/human protection {the only thing that separated the top of the reactor and the outside was the roof of the building, just a regular old industry roof}, lack of proper emergency equipment, etc.). The end result is that we eat better, breath better, and live better under a capitalistic form of government (its not even a completely true capitalistic government, so there's room for improvement). :D

    Originally posted by HLandin Sweeper, no matter what system of government/philosophy you belong to, profit is still the bottom line. That is why there is corruption in communism. You cannot make people give up more for less. In communism, you can extract the minimum out of people because if they don't do anything at all, they don't get anything. But, outside of the bare minimum they will not provide anything more. Because communism destroys the relationship between effort and reward (above this basic level). Capitalism is no more than the cementing of the relationship between effort and reward. To take it any further would require specifics. Now, granted with any system of government there will be those who gain and those who loose. This is inevitable (unless they become soverign individuals). It doesn't matter what system you conjure up, where it be capitalism, marxism, socialism, fascism, etc. So, the question we must ask is, which system benefits its subjects the most? Well, to determine that we can examine standards of living. Capitalist countries have much higher standards of living than communist countries. In fact, they have higher standards of living than any other country. Now, there is nothing wrong with being a communist just like there is nothing wrong with being naive. Just remember this, "If men were angels they would not need government." Therefore, we must not have ideals but results that work.
    Did you read what I said about Capitalism and corruption? There is a bottom line in Communism, the pay is split, they all get the reward, the all own a piece, you may want it all but you can't.. Well you may be right on the lose and gain part, but in communism the living standard is better than Capitalism, because if you go without work, you get some pay so that you can survive, that comes from the socialism part. If we look on the ordenances for the people in capitalism and communism you will see that the communism spreads it wider. But like I was going to say yesterday. I am not coming here to force you into communism, but I will not accept being forced into capitalism either. Like those foolish religion people we have around here walsing down our doors. Trying to convert you, man, I accept the religion they have, as long as they don't try to force it upon me...

    Darn, you aborted my chain, I told you I was going to return, now please wait, I will have to repost. Continiued:
    Originally posted by The Ranger Sweeper, I wasn't attacking you. I'm sorry if that's how it came across. The point that I'm trying to illustrate is that you shouldn't give equal reward for unequal work. However, I AM attacking you now. I sure hope you aren't about to try to argue that communism is a better system than capitalism. I'm sure the government of the USSR would agree with you... except that it no longer exists, because communism destroyed that country. On the other hand, the US, the most capitalistic country in the world, also happens to be the most powerful. I'm not saying the system is without its flaws, but anyone who actually knows something about basic economics and government knows that democracy/capitalism is an incredible system that works unbelievably well, given the inherent fallacies of humans. It's one of the greatest and more remarkable achievements of genius in human history, and it's the reason why Western society has been elevated above all others. The people who dance around singing "Capitalism is evil! Down with the system!" are a bunch of ignorant kids (and in some cases, adults) who are angry about one thing or another and refuse to take the time to understand why the system is as it is. No intelligent person can conclude that any system is better than capitalism if they do their research. History is full of people trying other things, always with the same result.
    Okay, now I need to get into my defensive position. But before I start blasting away at you, there are a few things. Let me get started: Nr1, I thought you attacked me in a "hidden" manner, there were somebody on a another forum that did it, and they got some payback. But to shoot you out of orbit like promised. First of, let me state for the record that I am a democratic marxist. Secondly, what good is capitalism if there is no work availible? You may be the elite of the elite on some area but there are no room for you, what do you do? Capitalism gives a **** there, it is money over people, so if you let capitalists do the good part for the people, in the end it is not good because money takes over and profit is all that counts! Personally I would not go and vote like that, where the blue guys come promising gold and green forrests they promise nothing, scarce work, dirty cities, living in the slum, we have all seen it, it is called Hooverville. And calling me an ignorant child that is only on communism for joy is wrong, I am actually a member of the local commie party, so I do not do my part. And you decide that the Soviet Union is dead? I don't think so if you read what some high ranking KGB agent wrote after he retired. He said it was a plan from the beginning to overthrow the west, by lulling them into some kind of sleep and attack them when they least expect it... Also the US of A has a problem, it is called crime and corruption, Soviet the corruption was visible, in the capitalist socity it is more hidden, but even more active. As for the crime, take a look around Cuba, before the US took over there were no Mafia at all, now it is growing like weed in a unfixed garden! Communism might not get rich as very fast as communism, but they don't crash that easiliy either when they are on top, USA only needs their stocks to make a Windows 95 style crash and they sitting there with nothing... Communism don't work that way... Enough about this, I got to go, no offense to you Ranger, not at all.

The first thing to do when you find yourself in a hole is to stop digging. This is the problem: you can't argue about facts, only opinions. Sure, you could argue with someone about whether you thought there was milk in the fridge or not, but the fact of the matter is, there's either milk there or there isn't. You go look. There's no point in arguing. Same goes for this. You can rant and rave all day about how great communism is... in theory. But when you look at the facts, it just doesn't work. Fact: the most capitalist country in history, the USA, is now economically, politically and militarily the most powerful and influential country in the world. Fact: the most communist country in history, the Soviet Union, no longer exists, having been destroyed by corrupt government (communism). Fact: 60 years ago, North and South Korea were at the same place in terms of technology and economy. For the past fifty years, North Korea has been communist and South Korea is democratic. Viewed from space at night, South Korea is a bright spot of lights, North Korea is a dark pit. Fact: South Korea is one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world and has more professional computer game players than any other country except the US (another capitalist country).

    The greatest bonus of capitalism over communism is that in a capitalist society, you have an incentive to work harder. It doesn't always work out, but generally, if you do a better job, you can advance and make more money. Also, if you do a job that's harder, or requires more education, you'll be paid more. In communism as the USSR had it, the janitor with three kids made more money than the surgeon who only had two kids. With such a system, there's no convincing reason to make a person go through the education process to become a lawyer or doctor when they can make more money just by having more children. And then they expect a bigger piece of the pie. This is one of the problems I have with the idea of putting everyone and their brother on the CL staff; pretty soon you'll have people contributing one or two art pieces for the CL shell, or a CL map or two, and then expecting to be put on staff, and then whining when they're not.

    Damn right ranger. Even if you read Karl Marx, you will see that he is envious of the advantage of growth in capitalist countries. Marxism attempts to eliminate periods of economic contraction and as a result he also eliminates growth. Although capitalistic countries may have times of economic downturn, they have an unparalleled ability for growth. The only way socialist or communist countries can keep pace with capitalistic countries is when the they stop being capitalistic. As for your comment that that other systems have been tried without success, that is indeed true. The whole history of human beings is the story of economics. Capitalism may or may not be the best form (this person believes it is unless you subscribe to the theory of the soverign individual) but no other system has come close to matching its ability.

    First, Communism is indeed when all are treated the same, and as a result equal work is extracted. But, the quality and the quantity of the work is substandard. That is also why communist countries have the highest rates of corruption in the world. Second, the system you describe is not captialism but rather democracy. It is where you attempt to treat all equally but discover that there are inconsistencies and can be levels of corruption. This case it is not pure capitalism but the mating of captialism and socialism, producing an unsatisfactory bitch. No offense to anyone

    Yea... To add S7 to the team is really more a necessity than a "maybe" ;) . The work he's done is amazing.. Althogh I haven't been playing CL much lately [hardly at all...> I've seen some of he's work and it's really impressive... :p But I do certainly not need to be added to the team.. Hehe.. I haven't done a thing since like spring or something.. And what I've done isn't that big of a deal.. :) If I was still making/remaking maps then maybe.. But as it is now: Nah.. :p In the question of S7 beeing added to the team: No discussion needed! Add him! :D

    Originally posted by The Ranger Can we please take off the kids' gloves and handle this realistically? SyntaxxSeven deserves to be added to the team.

No offense to the others nominated for staff membership, but they haven't done jack compared to S7. Inviting them too just because S7 is coming is pointless, and it's equal treatment for unequal work. That's called "Communism", people! It would be plain insulting to suggest that he hasn't provided anything of more worth than what the others have.
    You seem to carry out an attack at me, well for nr 1, I am NOT a part of the crew, never have been and I won't be in the future. Secondly what you present is NOT communism, then everyone including Seven would been on the team and every one would been handed work to do. Your example is Capitalism, awarding some but not all, and not allways the ones that deserves it, a very corrupt system. It seems like we are talking on the same case issue, like we are on the same side, right? I do want Syntaxx on the team, don't misunderstand me, because that is a crime! :D

    Cool off SyntaxxSeven, lay down your firearm, no need for it around here, I still have picked up a lot of talk on your packs so you know it. Actually it is a pretty hot subject around here. And hey, thanks to you and Santa I am planning on hooking up on CL first then hook up on Firearms mod afterwards. Then I am talking of bots now, We will have to see after some time what I can do, I'll talk a little to santa, get the latest SDK from Botman and I will do my job. So there you go. Just take a break off like Haunter said, it helps, Believe me, when it comes for seeing the bad sides of the world I have seen it for 11 long years, non stop. Now I finally got away from all the people bugging me and enjoyoing bugging me day in and day out. And how close were I to finishing life? Just one pull of the trigger. But enough of this, it is all over now, just take some time off, you will be attracted back to it again.

    I don't see why Far Q and Santa have to be added in order to add S7. Over the past few months, S7 has done more work for this mod than AMX, Haunter, Far Q and Santa have PUT TOGETHER. S7 MORE than deserves a slot on the team; it feels like he's just about the only guy doing any work. Everyone else comes out with tiny amounts of product that take forever to happen, meanwhile, he's pumping out real quality work at a phenomenal rate. Honestly, I see that Haunter's doing some new stuff with CL (rebuilding the whole damn thing) and Far Q and Santa have produced some things as well, but all of that falls down compared to the multitudinous seas incarnadine of work that S7 has provided us with. Sorry, guys, I hate to belittle your work, but nothing else comes close.

    I agree that S7 be added to the team list!!! He has done a great deal to our community and it would be unjust not to add him to the team list. Contact AMX immediately!!! :devil:

    I really hope you wouldn't leave 'cause then HL wouldn't be as fun to play! The models make gameplay fun and enjoyable.But Haunter is right! You should take a break and spend time with your family etc. etc. etc. LOL! I thought you were on the team. Oops. But You sure as hell should be!

    Adding you means adding Santa and Mr.T a.k.a FarQ. I need to discuss with AMX about this. Wait for the good news guys. ;)

    Add me to the team, Haunter.. I want to know there's a reason that I work so hard, give me one. Make it official, that way I don't feel like some worthless 3rd wheel who is not just "that model guy, the one who isn't part of the CL team, but he's cool" I hate that... it drives me nuts.. I put in just as much time as the rest of you guys... I think by now I have proved my loyalty and my skill to make this mod one of the better mods available for half-life... If you disagree, then tell me.. Give me a reason why what I am asking of you is not deserved or even worthy of my involvement.. Talk to you after a much needed break,

    Whoa! Whoa! Sorry, Seven. My schedule, like yours, is also tight. If you need to hold a 'meeting', mail me the time you'll be online. Then maybe we could discuss a few things out. And while I'm typing this, let known that you latest HD pack is already ready for download. And also, as you know, my ISP is still refusing me to come in the the cscentral network. What is wrong? Heck if I know. They only time you can see me here is on Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday. But no promises. And looking at this topic, yes. There were times I thought about giving it all up. 'Aw, screw this! It's all screwed up!' That's my first thought when I encountered a bug. But heck, take a break. Do something else. Take your mind off this thing. Then when you're ready to take it on, come back. With a refreshed mind. And usually, I have this habit of replying with one lines or two lines with my mail. I try not to get to detailed. Because like Charmaine says, and also based on my experience, the more detailed I get, the more confusing I'll be. But it seems to be different when I type. I could go back and redo/undo sentences. Making it more readable. So, relax! :D You;re not the only one who faced more fustration. Heck, I still remember breaking a CD because the darn thing refuses to work. Man, it was an original and it's not sold in any local retail shops anymore! Talk about fustration.
