I`ve seen some ppl have written whole reviews about some released skinpacks, a great idea!

Would be cool to have such a thing in the forum, or better, on the Skincity-site. I`d like to be able to rate skins and a sort function (like @ NaliCity) would also be great!

Hm, reviews of other users sound really cool (of course they should not be as strict as they are @ polycount....).

What do you think, would it make sense to make such a section in the forum?

I think it sounds like a good idea, as skins that are rated will show people who want to download skins if it's good or bad.

Yap it`s a great idea, rating systems are always good for such sites!

It makes things easier if you want to search for popular skins, but such systems depend on the users! My experiences are that most ppl are simply too lazy to vote or write comments -> If making such a sys, there should be an official Skincity-group which makes the comments and gives the notes, stars, points whatever to all the skins, to make sure the voting sys works

But I think that`s already on SaD`s long long to-do-list ;)

Yep .I meet my php-coder at the GC in 4 weeks .
He is really short on time at the moment , but we think to expand our backend , so every visitor can rate a skin and give a comment (like the comments in the news) .

Other than that it´s a great idea with the reviews in the forum .
I´m really up for this .I can make a sticky and add reviews there , if someone is willing to do some (like the tutorial-list ) .So nothing get lost.
Also there should be a general look-out of the Reviews , like :

Header of the thread : [UT-Review] - Name of the Skin
[UT2003-Review] - Name of the Skin

The Review splitted in some different rated sections like :

General (Type of skin - Urban Camo Marine or whatever )
Technical (copy/pasted , complete from scratch or whatever)
The Rating : 5 out 10 points , 50 % or whatever .

These are only some suggestions .

A whole new section like the tutorials would be great ;) or in which section this should be posted?

If suggestions are appreciated, let`s think about it:

First of all the skin should have standart infos (like on skincity)

Type: Skin/Skinpack/Custom Model/Reskinned custom Model
Teamcolors: No/2/4
A link to the pic and download
anything else I forgot?

And the words by the reviewer (in best case sorted by the evaluated sections)

for instance:

model
textures
teamcolors
portrait
bio

overall score

what do you think about that?

As a guy, who is obviously unable to shut up for single moment, I would surely make some reviews (beware klas, beware :p)

UTGirl

This would surely be great!

The comments at skincity are good, but with new news they are moved out of sight. Surely you can read them, if you search, but who does it? I won`t... I just click on skinpacks (for instance) and see what`s up :D
OK, no need for now, I`m up to date at the moment, but maybe there is a great skin I missed? This should help in getting the best skins :D

Here at the forums is also a must have list, maybe you`ll make on of the hottest skins/models in skincity-section to?
I don`t like sites, which require a registration to get my stuff, so links to such sites are just waste of time. Skincity is great, I think such a sticky thread would help :)

I think the General and Off-Topic Section should be ok .No need for another subforum .
With the sticky list you can find all reviews easily.
Some good ideas there MäxX .

Start your first review and I create the Sticky.:D


The comments at skincity are good, but with new news they are moved out of sight.


The comments will be part of the infobox about the skin.Also the rating.

------

And remember.We run SkinCity in our spare time (You know reallife is teh suck sometimes :D . I´m really busy (10-14 hours) at work at the moment.So I don´t have so much time I´d like to have to visit the board or doing things at SkinCity. So , don´t expect changes done in 2 days , but as MäxX said , we have a lot of things on our todo-list . :) If we get some free time we improve SkinCity.Believe me , I run SkinCity since 1999 and there are many improvements .I´m sure nobody wants to see crappy version 1 from 1999 :D . we try to get better and better.And we absolutly appreciate constructive threads like this.This way the tutorial-section was born.:)
As an example : The last time we changed something @ SkinCity our coder had work for something like 150 hours(new design / database ).

----

Don´t count on me doing reviews . I don´t have the time and the knowledge.
I think someone who is skinning and knows what he is talking about is better for reviewing . :)

This actually sounds pretty cool, but I will not commit myself that much to reviewing skins since I don't have any real good skills in that area of expertise(reviews).

But I'd like to see this as an addition to the site. Also sub sub subbedisub menu on the right side of the skincity main site linking to most recent reviews would be cool ;) :)

Good idea again for more work for SaD ;) and good to see the site growing too with new and exciting developments. My favourite site for ratings and the way it's done is Mapraider - the way it uses community moderated ratings - that way you get very accurate scores for everything. It's an idea but I dunno' how it's implemeted and reckon it'd be a lot more work for our poor coder.

Only thing I'd say is go easy on the new guys, although we've all seen some really abysmal stuff and the odd dreaded nude pixel :lol: (almost) everyone tries their best. There are a lot of kids doing it who think what they make is cool, so let's not be too harsh with the bad ratings. I'd like to see constructive crits if there are going to be any bad reviews (you rarely see that). Generally if I don't like something I'll say nothing or try to be constructive and if I do like something - kudos.

I will probably be too diplomatic to rate other ppls work aside from maybe the odd model but I'll throw in my two cents here and there on anything I've downloaded and used :D

27th Jul 2005, 08:59 PM
Make a thread, in General and Off-Topic, for each review and then someone(a mod) will take care of making a stickie with a list of links to all the seperate reviews.
I'd recommend making the review threads locked. For now at least to keep reviews clean and easy to read.
Also how about a common layout for review threads with pics on top in a line and then continue the review itself. Like on insite, really an easy site to read. ;)

The first is done. Consider this as Beta-Review :)

Should we ad some more info? We should definitaly make a score sys:
eg
00-20% - data crap
20-40% - some people might like it
50-60% - reasonable
70-80% - good
80-90% - great
91-100% - godlike

this should be mentioned in the summary of all the threads

What if 2 people want to review the same char? many many questions :p

I also added a poll, so nobody has to ad comments, just vote :tup:, :hmm: or :tdown: for this review ;)

@klas: You`re right, we`re not at polycount and so we shouldn`t be so strict. Well I think only the best will be reviewed *g* Are there any bets how many reviews there will be for the UC2 Skinpack? :lol:

btw and a little bit OT, I love making reviews *g* The german speaking users might know the PC game magazine "PC Games", they also have a part on the homepage, where user can review games. My reviews are here (http://www.pcgames.de/?menu=0203&mode=author&login=RamboCK)

A userrating @ the infobox over at the mainsite shouldn´t be that hard to implement.
I don´t know how to implement the reviews in the board to the mainsite like Rex said.
But I'd like to see this as an addition to the site. Also sub sub subbedisub menu on the right side of the skincity main site linking to most recent reviews would be cool

We are working with a database and every skin/model/Q&A/Theme is automatically linked in the boxes on the mainsite.It´s a really great idea Rex , but I think it´s impossible to do it without hours of work .
Anyways , I ask our coder , if there is a way to get it added.


@ MäxX : I really like your first review .It´s the only one I don´t close at the moment , so the ppl here can vote and tell us what they think of the review.

I like the layout of the review.Also I like the ratingsystem . % are easily to understand for everyone.On the other side .To make it look professional , don´t use smileys in the review.
Nice reviews @ PC-Games , too .:tup:

With more reviews the layout can surely be improved, but for a first step I think it`s quite good :D

Hopefully there will be many revisions made :)

Good layout and review on the first, MäxX (well done) but I'm unsure as to whether the posts should be closed. Maybe we need to think more about how it's done... If a skin/model's been reviewed shouldn't other users be able to give their input in the same post? Otherwise anyone can just say such a skin is 100% without getting other ppl's opinions or getting a more fair overall review. It's useless if we can't vote on the review or add our own comments.

Another thing to consider is that ppl who like e.g., nightmare skins are of course going to review them. Is the skin itself being reviewed or the nightmare character? That's what I meant by community moderated reviews so there are no biased reviews.

Oh I'm gettin' a pain in me head :lol: anyone else want to add anything or comment on what I've said?

28th Jul 2005, 03:41 PM
I shouldn't imagine that'd be a problem, Starry Might once they're not models ported from another game in which case we can't really promote them since they break the EULA... Besides there may be a few good ones SaD's missed :eek: which can later be put on SkinCity with permission from the authors :D

I'd imagine that's what the almighty SaD will say ;)

Sure , why not .
But I point to Klasnic post .Only skins and models without breaking the EULA e.g. no conversions from other games to the UT-Series.

Anyway, I'm thinking that maybe we SHOULD have a subforum for reviews, just so that "General and Off Topic" isn't clogged with review topics. ;)

EDIT: Another question...should I completely copy the review style of MäxX (his "Exile II (CTF4 version)" review is quite nice), or can I do my own thing (albeit with some cues taken from the afortmentioned review)?

klasnic
28th Jul 2005, 09:44 PM
I do like the layout in MäxX's it's very professional looking and tidy but I guess you can add to it (e.g., is the skin/model online compatible or are there issues, is it available in SP, if it's for 2k4 does it have vehicle animations missing) That kinda thing should be mentioned too if it's relevant. I'd never have imagined a portrait and bio getting a score but who knows where we'll end up?

We might just see different things added by different ppl 'til we get some kind of default format, Starry ;)

@ SaD I'll keep an eye out for spam too :D

[EDIT] oh I'd also recommend that ppl only rate stuff they've actually tried and not just the pic :tup:

MxX
29th Jul 2005, 02:30 AM
I`m with you guys (and girls :p)

There can be many info added, it was only a first try, let it call a beta :lol:

Obviously we shouldn`t lock the reviews, since there might be further important infos ;)

bios and portraits are worth a scoring, but they shouldn`t affect the final score too much IMO ;)


vehicle anims for custom models are definitaly a must have info, but I didn`t include it, due it`s not a custom model :)

²Starry: I`d say we try some diffrent things until we have the best one, but the reviews should be all in one typical style in the end(exspecially the scoring sys)

²Klas: I prefer reading reviews to writing them :D

²MäxX: You forgot the poll? Too bad, maybe it can be included afterwards, that`s a good idea I think.
Instead of posting the usual "You`re review sucks"-crap, ppl simply vote and keep the review clean (....to keep clean, oh I like that phrase....I`m NOT meaning the housework, pals :lol: )

²SaD: I agree, when the reviews are spamming (I don`t eman the thing to eat :p) the GaOT section, there should be a new sub made. Let`s see in which direction this "new trend" goes :p

Ok, I`ve got some new ideas :D

First of all there should only be reply posts with another review. eg when there is a review concerning the UC2-Skinpack with 25 replies, we should have 26 diffrent reviews!
And not 10 guys saying that review is great, 5 saying it sucks, 10 having smalltalk, and another one hijacking the thread with a totally offtopic thing (eg a request).

For that purpose we could ad a (sticky) Discussion thread, were all ppl can discuss the reviews there (and only there).

I think the reviews should stay clean and professional, so I will delete all my other posts @ the reviews

Maybe we should kill that polls too -> if there are more than one review for a skin/model/whatever they are pretty useless IMO

And Sad, now we have that forum, can you please kill the "Review"-part in my headlines? ;) Or can I do it, by simply changeing? Gonna try it out :lol:

Not a bad idea. But you must keep in mind that a "map" and a skin are completely different. Altought, everything have it's own manual and point of view. A map is big and have alot of detail , so there is a good book to whrite for it. While a skin is a texture on a model. It can be reviewed, but it won't be whrited the same way as nalicity.

I do think you're right, MäxX in that the poll should reflect the skin/model and not the review as that makes no sense. I would however keep the poll as not everyone's gonna' post a review. It's better for an overall (moderated) impression of the skin/model. Also anyone adding comments should at least score it themselves and say why it's gotten a different score from them (like I did with Exile II CTF4). Discussion sounds good too if you want to start a general review discussion thread and talk to yourself until someone joins in :lol:

I made sure I didn't in mine (was sweating thinking I'd forget). I still think generally the scores are too high though. I'm not being strict and 7.75 for Hide's model is a very good score in my books.

When you get used to rating maps and seeing how other ppl rate them you soon realise how things are rated - eventually it's like second nature - that's why I like MapRaider so much it's honest :tup:

We should have a rating system! Obviously the ppl are thinking that a 7 is not a good score for a skin ;)
and on the other hand I think all reviews have been made for skins the reviewers like (most), so it`s only natural that there are extremly high scores :p

What do you think of that:

0 - one of the worst ever
1 - serious data crap
2 - bad quality
3 - there exists better works
4 - some people might like it
5 - average
6 - good
7 - very good
8 - excellent, download is advised!
9 - perfect and flawless
10 - The developer should be recruited by Epic

btw, another nice review MäxX and a good job with the Desert Falcons! Starry Might wrote nice bios, a nice service making this an int-file :tup:

Excellent idea UTGirl that'll be put in my Template thread so people can see what each score means (in each review). I'd still think we can score in the 7.x style though so it'd mean between 7 and 8. Now let me look this over one more time...

I'd add this to the follwing;

6 - Good (but not a keeper)
7 - Very Good (definitely a keeper)
8 - Excellent (you'll use this for a long time to come)
9 - Perfect (SaDaGe!!) :lol:

I'll leave it here for the mo to let other people have their views and also the scores in the current reviews might need to be adjusted 'cause they don't reflect the points here... So let's hear what others have to say :D

[EDIT] I'd change 10 to something else as some community modellers should probably be hired by Epic but it doesn't refelct the actual skin/model. Someone with a score of 7 for a skin/model could be good enough to be hired you see and yet it can't be score 10 if you know what I mean :tup:

UTGirl
4th Aug 2005, 02:22 AM
I`m the same oppinion *g*

Adding this at template or something else is a great idea, anyone should know what the scores mean

btw obviosly the MercFem is not only the favorite model to be skinned....no also to be reviewed :lol:

Adjusting scores sounds good. We are still at the beginning and nobody is perfect :D

EDIT:
yap the Score.x-style should also be kept, sometimes it`s difficult to say if a skin is only good, or very good

What do you think (especially our two reviewers :) ) to create a "release-queue for SkinCity-Sticky-whatever-Thread?
I can post the links to the latest skins/models uploaded to the Fileworks , if someone wants to review a skin/model right in time for the release @ SkinCity ?
There aren´t so many skins at the moment , so there isn´t much time to review it before the skin/model hit the mainpage (+1 day after Fileworkslink).
Only a idea .

I wouldn`t lock it, I`m sure for the UC2-Skinpack will be some reviews ;) and the polls are cool (MxX will also be able to handle them in some time :lol: )

The OT-comments should simply be moved into the discussion thread by you admins.

Better a wrong poll than a forgotten poll, I`m improving :lol:

I will manage the polls UTG I will ...sometimes.....maybe next year *lol*

I also wouldn`t lock the reviews, more diffrent reviews for one skin/model/whatever are better than more diffrent threads. I think this will get better sometimes, maybe we should make the other stickies unsticky (except vq and review list) and and make one (locked) sticky including the "rules", scoring sys and templates

EDIT: another option is to bann *lol:

Ok I'll leave them open but all comments without a further review / score will be removed as that's what we'd decided. We need to keep these threads clean :)

Oh a few small comments/questions or additional info here and there are ok but they will be removed in time ;)

If we left all post there , it will be very messy .

I sorted the skins for every model in alphabetical order.
That should work , because the name of the model is mentioned in the reviews.I think it´s easier to read with the models chapters than a reallly long alphabetical list.

SaD, I don't suppose you now the number of skins that are currently on SkinCity?
Just out of curiosity. :)
When I`m right it`s all a gigantic DB, I think this could be done with a small query? :lol:

EDIT:
Sorry for double post it`s still too early....gonna take my coffee and let`s see what happens then :lol:

Wuha, quite a big collection meanwhile! Ah now I know, I could`ve taken the number included in the pic_id... I should have known I could have known that earlier....

Was more or less some kind of coincidence though :lol: just d/l it and will rate the skin via the poll. I`m wuite sure this will be a :tup: but I must see that myself ;)

SaD`s keeping every skin, well how big are your UT-folders at the moment? *g*

Not that big . Most of the skins get deleted after testing .

But my Skinfolder on my backup-harddrive is big like hell :lol: . > 6 GB .

If you had really all skins installed, that would be pretty confusing....

6GB skins and models....ok...that are quite a few :lol:

:lol:

@ MäxX I'll take a look at the release queue later and see if I can take more

@ UTGirl - HOLY SH1T! Rating spree x10 :D I must check your online stats

[EDIT] I've got Aias and Skye (a few days now) here so I'll try review at least one of them or will I take Sinistress, MäxX to get all the closer ones done? :)

Ooops , there was a trap :D .No , I dont delete any skin from my game . My UT2004-folder is nearly 30 GB , its a little bit uncomfortable to search for a specific skin (if you have to scroll down 1.5 km to find what you are looking for ) , but every skin is in my game . :lol: :D
