    Hey, I'm always seeing threads popping up about devs from other countries, and I thought, why hasn't there been an Australian one?
    I probably know most of you already, but I would like to get to know more of you.

    I guess it's our lazy nature :D

    Anyway, posted this to chat about what your all up to and so we could speak our native tongue.

    G'day!


    Edit : And what a way to hit 400 posts!

    I live at the other side of Australia in Perth but just because we're both in Australia it must make us awesome.

    That's because we are.
    Close enough, I lived in NZ for 5 years. You're now grandfathered in.
    We are basically family.

    Yep... although I don't really use unity at the moment, but seriously considering making the move indefinitely.

    Aren't these forums full of Ankle biters these days!

    Gobsmacked that the Unity license is Fair dinkum $5,000AUS, give a bloke a fair go ! Don't mean to be a Knocker though!

    (
    Arent the forums full of children at this present time

    Suprised that the Unity license is genuinely $5,000, give us a chance! Don't mean to be a complainer/critiziser though

    )


    EDIT: This thread is going places, maybe the trash, but its going places

    I am not sure I count as a proper developer, I am more a hobbyist... Born and bred in Brissy. I started playing with Unity 6 months ago.

    I have written a couple multiplayer games so far, a FPS with a BZFlag weapons twist and currently working on a Arcade Racer using Unity Car. [EDIT:] Just for personal use with friends and maybe the occassional Friday Lunch game at work :)

    I love Unity!! it makes it so easy for a newb to start creating games.

    Melburnian here. Although I was born in NZ I have been living in various parts of Victoria for over half my life now.

    Who here is going to PAX Australia and is there anyone else that is going to be exhibiting?

    They are non-existent in Canberra.
    There is only north and south. You could think of it as the Australian equivalent to north and south Korea :)

    Not sure what you are trying to say, but yes. Ants are welcome.
    In fact, so are all insects and arachnids.

    As well as birds, reptiles, mammals, marsupials, bacteria, plants, fungi etc.
    If it's living, it is welcome to stay.

    It was a play on words from the Zoolander quote "What is this a center for ants?!", saying that it is a very small state :)

    Besides, the ACT isn't small... Everywhere else is too big.

    PMSL... So true, but that over inflated funding is keeping me employed at least. It's just a shame knowing first hand (as I provide consulting services to a large federal agency) that government wastes far too much money and time. A privately owned company doing the same could do it with less than half the budget, fewer people and deliver far better results. (where I work anyway, not all of them are as bad) ***END RANT***
