    Hello everyone, I just finished watching the new Netflix series "13 Reasons Why". For those who do not know me, I'm in school and have been studying film for the last year now. I firmly believe that film can be a powerful way to spread important messages. In addition to that belief, I keep meticulous track of what I watched. Up to this point, I have seen well over a thousand films and tv shows. With that said I have no reservations saying that "13 Reasons Why" is the hardest show that I have ever watched. If you know me and know me well you well know that I have adamant feelings towards the inadequate sex education and it's actual effectiveness to stop violence against women. "13 Reasons Why" can take this subject plus the alarming suicide problem among teen’s and much, much more and be able to deliver it to the viewers in it's rawest form. All of these are issues that all across America that we need to sit down and talk about. I believe that this show gives us a starting point to start to talk about these problems. Many people like to write off the show as a show that glorifies sex violence and suicide, but it's not. The show doesn't glorify any of that. Instead, it shows us the devastation that these issues can and well cause. I encourage all of you who are reading this to take a second to think about what you can do to combat these problems. Be the brave ones who stands and tries to find solutions to these problems instead of the thousands of people who only look at the surface of this show and writes it off as being a bad influence. And just maybe we may be able to save one more individual from becoming a victim. #13ReasonsWhy #Yournotalone

  • Hey Task, I was thinking of making a content pack with you and Hbm about some plane bombers (B-50D and Tu 195) and Atomic Bombs (Yeah, true A-Bombs). How? Well, Hbm (A modder in MC Forum) has made a mod on MC Forum called Hbm's Nuclear Tech Mod. It is about nukes and nuclear reactors. The nukes, when exploding, makes a crater in a slow algorithm, so it doesn't lag at all.
    If you are interested, you could do the planes and the textures, me the crafting recipes, and Hbm how to make the bomb explode when touching the ground. It would need, of course Hbm's mod to work. I still have to ask him if he wants to.

  • I have been in contact with him, he doesn't have time to make models anymore. That's why I have his models.

    Hey, everyone, I'm looking forward to releasing a massive update on my packs soon. There are just a few more models that I want get back in the packs, mainly the S-97. But that's not what I'm here for today. Last night I was talking to Cloneguy and Proto while talking we were joking around about our original models. Then this morning I was talking to also longtime community member THCobra about the old days. For those who have joined this community in the last two years, you've have gotten to see many beautiful models built with Manus's Toolbox. Without the Toolbox Vini's gorgeous new P-51 would have been nearly impossible to make, all of the shapes would have to be created by hand. The program that most of used before the Toolbox was called Techne, a program that was plagued by bugs. Now I'm not saying that we didn't have good models back then, it was that they were more simplified compared to toady's models. When I always see a picture of an old model from the 1.2.5 or 1.4.7 days, it reminds me of a much simpler time.


    My second F-14 that I created back in the Techne days.

    With that said I'm happy to announce that I'm going back to my old and original models and putting them back into the game. Now yes that means that they well look blocky, have weird sizes, have no HD Textures, and have small wheels. If you don't like the idea having these types of models in your game that's fine, but at the same time it would be a great peak into this great community's earlier years. Obviously, some of my old Techne models well have to be fixed up, and I'll add shapes where I originally intended to (I originally had no idea how to use them).

    My next announcement is that I'm going to release Stan's old models. A few months ago I was talking to Stan (one of the original modelers), and he sent me all of the past work he did. I have the models that he did release and never got around to finish or release. We planned to get them up and running again for a new release. But I became very busy, and the project fell apart. But I'm now going to go back and get it up and running. I also plan to release alongside with my variants of Stan's Blackhawk.


    A few models built by Stan back in the 1.2.5 days.

    While I'm putting this stuff together, I also want to send out a request to my fellow modelers that have also been around for awhile. If you still have models that you had released back in the 1.2.5 or 1.4.7 days, I encourage you also to release them again. Also, I would like you guys to send me old models from modelers that are long gone to me. Those models would be released as one pack alongside credit to the original builders.

    For those still reading this, I want to say thank you. The past can be fun to peer into from time to time. With this project, my main goal is to preserve and share earlier days of the Flan's mod. This also meant to be a nod to all the community and how far we have come. I hope that those who of us who have been around for awhile can look forward to seeing some old friends in the game again. That said I also hope that those who have recently joined this community can also look forward to seeing our earlier work. I also hope that you can understand that "god" level models were out the question at the time and be respectful towards the simplicity of the models. Again I thank you all for giving your support to me and my other fellow modelers over the years.

    Sincerely To All, TaskForce51 ;)

  • You can contact me through skype, TaskForce51. Make sure you specify in your request who you are, I can't stand scammers so if I don't specify that you are from the community I don't accept the request. But I'll be happy to teach you on how to work rotors.

  • On idea 13: I think this was a brief feature back in 1.6.4. Flan and I have talked about this before, you could tow planes around airbases and aircraft carriers. It would make things a lot easier organizing the planes when not in use.

    I've been thinking of using the SMP Radio to talk about the process I go through making my models. It would be for anyone who wants to start modeling or looking for possible tips. I've thought about doing videos but I just don't have the time right now. Would any of you be interested, if not I won't do it.

  • I finally finished the new CH-46, in my opinion, it's not the best. But I'll admit that for some strange reason the CH-46 has always been a challenging model. So I give a friendly challenge to TankHunterCobra to take stab at the CH-46. I trained you well;)
