Twinsun Ultimate Lba website?

People over here love info concerning lba, its like somthing glowing in the dark, we dont get much from the light. Now i wanted to break open a little window in the wall of this dark room, open up all the info people want/need to know. I want to make a site with vast amount of info, i also want it to be there for all people, all langiages, all gamers. I want to make a site promoting the games, preparing LBA3 for its arrival, and im optomistic its gonna be made. I see, in my point of view, that lba partially failed due to lack of correct advertising, and the general market demand for adventures. Sure the demand was there back in 94, but the problem remained with the "first looks". I wanna make a site wich makes the lba series appealing to all consumers, rpg, adventurours, sims, strategy. I want the real lba feeling to spill over the people who visit the site, i have plans on what the design should look like, what backround music to be played. I plan on creating and using my own renders to capture the lba feeling when needed. The i plan on releasing some old work, a sort of "lba guide" where people get in depth details of the function of every item, what each charecters role it, and a walkthrough. Also i can have a little place of my own where i can give the most indepth detail on f4-toys available, what is happening behind the scene, that is more analysis, that it is a collecting of info. The mbn is a nice place, i dont want there to be forum competition with this place, we need a place were all the lba fans are united. The site i wish to make will be independant, i.e. no magicball network signs, but i hope, that if i make it, el makes it the information center for lba. I hope to have it in as many languages as possible, on my part arabic and english, maybe hebrew, dutch, hungarian, brazilian, japanese, etc... Whoever would be able to perform the translating job well, will get controll of the site section with his language. Also, in the summer vacation, ill order remaining stocks of lba1, and have them distrubuted via the site, its pritty cheap, but this idea still needs a considerable amount of money. Adressing the problem of allocation of resources for the projects, i hope to write a document on every project made, and what it needs, how long, and my own suggestions.
My talent lays in 3d modelling, ive recently mastered many advanced techniques in a bid to work with a company. GIES I SPENT 6 MONTHS AND WENT FROM AMATUER TO HIGH INTERMEDIATE. I wont say the word advanced till ive prooven it. So what im suggesting here is a 3d section, ill make tutorials as i create 2 chrachters, twinsen and funfrocks agent. Ill get some info on how to model with effieciency and precision, how to texture. Then i want to lighten up the place a bit with a very peacefull lba design. Basically i wish to make a very light coloured site, once im finished making the site, ill contact pvachey for some midies, if everything goes well, ill contact fred and ask him for the right to distrubute lba freely, by downloading it from the site. I will hopefully get some photos of f4-toys and the people this year, july 1st ill be in france, if all goes well. I want to start lba programs, were we can EFFECTIVELY help the our cause. Why just sit and wait for lba3 when we can make an influence? Arnt we one of the very few fans who are very close to the team?
Articles, ill share a database of articles. I havnt shared them because some include personal information on fred, and some other members of his team, fred will have to personnaly view its content before i post it up.
I plan on using techniques which attract the usual gamer. 1st and foremost, choosing a name which a normal gamer would find interist in, i must admit, Little Big Adventure, the name, was disastorous, and relentless wasnt much better. Twinsens odyssey was ok, but still not attractive enough. Havnt thought of anything yet for this,

Lba3, now who on earth dosnt like to read info on this? Well, he might not be an lba fan, but i will request some new info, and i will put an indepth look at it, and when, or how it might come out.

There is so much, but im lost, and dont now what to adress next, i want YOU the lba fan to tell me what you think make suggestions for what you would like to see, voice your opinion

OK.
A fine initiative.
I'm sure many members here will help you out, (i'll try too once the summer holidays start)
I wish you good luck!
(and btw, i hope there's going to be a documentation of adeline's 'transformations' so far, etc)

All righty Axx. We spoke about all that in #lba a few days ago. The idea sounds very, very good actually.
However, I would avoid a forum in such a site. Too many people are just dedicated to the MBN, and as you said, all LBA fans should be united.
The idea sounds very good though, I'm sure such a site will succeed.

I may help you too (especially with the translation).

I really hope the site will do well!

No.
All the community should be focused in one single site, which is the Magic Ball Network.
An attempt to create something else would only lead to division, and I think that would be bad for fans.
The MBN can provide everything you mentioned. And besides, there'snt such a "large" amount of info. Before having big ideas you must have the content.
IMO, it will not succeed - the Ultimate LBA site is and should be the MBN, and that can't change.

having one single community is nice but having one single fansite would just be restrictive and silly. there used to be so many lba fansites... all the most popular games out there have at least a few fansites. one single fansite is just... :\ i can't explain it. good games = lots of fans = lots of fansites.

ergo /me thinks axx should go ahead ^_^

Hmm I dunno...

The idea sounds very good, but I also prefer one main place about LBA. Maybe we could make a combination.

A very good and interesting idea, allthough the MBN alone could also be good enough, as allrdy some people said.

Can't you just join forces with El? Can't we just 'all' help El out where possible to make the MBN a number one site for not only LBA die-hards but also the less dedicated newbe's only to spread the word of the greatness of LBA all around the world?
I'm sure that there are plenty enough people who have ideas, can and want to help making MBN an even greater site then it allrdy is. As long as it is coordinated by the site-maker himself the MBN won't loose any of it's greatness but will only grow. And it will save El some work.
So when we team up there could be additional sections about the things Axx mentioned on a central place which has allrdy be discovered by many gamers. The other languages can be done by the people from those countries. Furthermore you allrdy have a good url and layout, which you can't easily beat.

So I should say; let's team up and make the MBN an even greater and more indepth site then it allrdy is !

Hum...

Having a lot of different and independant websites all around the world is very interesting too. It shows the personnal vision that each of us has for Little Big Adventure, wich is more constructive imho.
Don't you think it would mean the end of all of them if a single ultimate site would be done ?

maybe it's better if the info about lba is in more languages but i guess this site is already a bit "the mekka" for lba fans. Because i never saw a site like this one about lba. Much more to find here why should you wanted to create another one?
