Great idea!
I can't give you one of my best moment. But maybe the most memorable for me is my wedding. Because I met my wife on Trackmania, and some guests where trackmaniacks (who were also some friends).

I do have one but it is not really a Trackmania one. Let's play a game ^^

-How many Shootmania protytpes do you think did existed guys ? One hint [we worked a lot].

In fact i have more than one :

- When i joined Nadeo we were only 3 Artists working on 3 IP [intellectual property], and we were working on Valley, Canyon, Storm, Cryo, Questmania, all at the same time. Nadeo wasn't more than 15 persons in total. [Muscle only].

I know about SMGothic and SMParis which I think were at least 2 prototypes before Storm!

-Joining Ubisoft was a good memorie as well. Being part of Nadeo and seing it moving from Independant to Ubisoft. [This made me understand a lot of thing in this industry].

-Working late [not that late] with Florent only and trying to find all Shootmania's env name was really fun moment actually ^^

-When i was asked to work on what i'm working actually [a part of the environment of upcoming game] was "MindBlowing". Having the chance of being responsible of 95% of it too. [None studio can allow it]. This is why i work here. [Hint next game will be really good].

My father gave me Trackmania for Christmas in 2003. I played TMN ESWC a little bit, and got back to TM with TMNF when I was in school in 2008 ; so when I was looking for an internship, I figured I had nothing to loose sending an application to contact@nadeo.com, and Hylis kindly answered. I have been here 10 years, so in retrospect I'm glad for this message in a bottle :)

I can relate to learning about the industry, once you learn about the business side of things you really understand how everything works. (Even if it could be better. :P)

What do you mean with "None studio can allow it"? :O You mean being responsible for 95% of a thing?

This hits close to home! This is exactly how I got my internship at Croteam back in the day! :D And so you see; even if you think you're not good enough yet, just go for it and see what happens :thumbsup:
