    Hear that? Sounds like an obligatory thread.
    Have any New Year's Resolutions for 2019? Share 'em here!

    Here's mine, for example:

    I want to pick up an old map of mine and get it to Beta by August, when I'll be going off to university. I also want to make more digital art and maintain a healthy diet.

    Don't forget to check out the resolutions people made for 2018, 2017, and 2016!

    I just want to hunker down and actually finish an a1, lol. I’ve sort of got into a habit of just abandoning maps if I don’t like them.

    My resolutions are to get at least one map to beta, host more tests and gamedays, and possibly write a couple of plugins for use on the server

    1. Finish my album.
    2. Get several Beta maps out, at least a single RC.
    3. Stop assuming the worst of people.
    4. Learn how to do make-up.
    5. Do 20 minutes of level design, game design, drawing and music each a day at least.
    6. Stop making my new years resolutions so long.

    I was planning on kicking off the thread this year, but the early bird gets the worm.

    I found out over the past few years that mapping-related goals are often left in the dust, so I'll just go with my goals I've been thinking about for the past few weeks.
    • Break patterns of negative thought.
    • Gain some weight. Seriously, I need to get on it and keep it.
    • Stop running at night (or at least cut back). It's just plain dangerous.
    • Improve social skills. I often assume the worst or duck out of conversations and take long hiatuses.
    • Continue daily sketches, weekly paintings, and make gestures and studies a more consistent practice.
    • Continue running at least six days a week. Build up for a half marathon or beyond for the end of the year.
    • Be more willing to share things. It's not the critique that I mind, I just need to break past imperfections for works in progress so I'll continue projects instead of dropping them.
    • Take better care of myself.
    I hope you lovely people all have a great 2019. Improve yourself as a mapper, and more importantly, as a person.

    currently all i really want is to survive senior year and figure out what the heck i want to do with my life in college
    other than that, the usual "i want to get a map to beta/RC" still applies. i made 1 alpha last year, maybe this year i can smash records and release 2!

    • Get the map I started yesterday to rc1 by June
    • Finally finish Intrusion after starting work on it over a year ago (and actually redesign half of it for better gameplay)

    I wanna lose 15-20 pounds, I'm at a decent weight right now but last time I lost 15 pounds I felt pretty great.

    Oh and let's make Sunset RC a reality this year :)

    A little ways into 2018 I resolved to try and be more self-confident. I think I was successful; I got over my fears of interviewing to get my first job, revealed to the world that I’m a furry, and realized and told people that I wasn’t straight.

    So to continue in this theme, for 2019 I want to try and be more myself and not let my fears control me. Maybe dye my hair or something.

    Also continue the holdovers from last year:
    Exercise more
    Get a map to RC1
    Finish more projects I start​

    I just want to be able to finish something. I've started so many projects and lost the motivation to finish, I can name like four off the top of my head (koth_distill, Reverse Fortress, Missile Wars 2, Iron Rings Mod). Not sure how I'm gonna succeed later down the road if I don't even have a project portfolio to show for myself.
