Do you want more tutorials? What kind?
Do you want more reviews?
Is there a subject area that hasn't been covered that you would like to see?

Probably a review for some of the third party utilities I'm making for AM would be nice. If it's still desired I will put my TKG Application back up online.

Other than that I think your covered, your doing great keeping this magazine alive. :)

Edit & PS if you would like some help with the making the upcoming issues AM magazine I'm totally for it.

I would like more tutorials about creating the 3D world of your game, lightning effects etc...

I assume you are referring to 3D modeling. This is something I'd like to learn and from the looks of it, it is very complex. I'll pass this on to a couple of our regulars that have experience in this area and see if they can share some starter tutorials.

More reviews, some contests (for example to create the cover of magazine),
create a monthly list of the best games made with AM,
a poll about the gaming world(what is your favorite adventure, or your favorite game development studio...). Are some ideas. :wink:

Regular mag sections such as suggested below.

-Useful codes and the not so useful codes.

-Rendering a 3D scenes and general tricks for them. (Bryce, Vue, Poser, Daz etc...)

-Story telling tricks. (The process of making one)

-New or suggestion of a puzzle. (Full coded puzzle or a challenge to readers on making a new one and post it in the forums.)

-Drawing tricks. (Roughs, color, perspective, animations etc...)

-Game previews. (Newly announced games)

-Vaporware games (Talk about them and what they could have been, maybe that would spark some enthusiasm with their makers to work on them again!)

-Game reviews. (Maybe have like 3 to 5 reviewers to get different opinions.)

-Interview with game designers on up-coming projects.

-Links to useful AM tools.


I know some of the suggestions already exist in sections of the AM forums. But having that in one big collection of the AM mag would be great. Because many folks like me who cannot visit the forums on a regular basis kind of loose track on the many pages and sections of the forum and having the mag containing all this info in a well organized manner would be best IMO.

Just my two cents, but that would keep you quite busy, reneuend. ;)

Thanks for the input everyone. I'll definitely look at doing some of these. Here is my biggest issue: I need more writers. No one has to do anything for every issue, but it would help to have more submissions.

ZW has touched on something that I've been trying to do and that is grabbing things that occur on the forum that seems to be when Mercedes asked about sequences, I added an article for it.
