Addicts 5-Year Look Back: Wookiee’s 3-D Mega Prison

Following the same path of wanting to be different than other TSTO sites, we introduced design How-Tos to TSTO Addicts back in 2013.  Mostly based around 2D and 3D design work.  Really intricate design work done by some really talented people.

Wookiee, at least to me, was the King of 2D/3D designs.  It’s one of the major reasons I asked him to join Addicts when we first started.  Little did I know I’d be getting so much more than a 2D/3D designer!  Wook would break down some of his most intricate designs from his Springfield into simple steps anyone (and everyone) could follow.

While we’ve had loads of 2D/3D posts over the years, the one that always stands out the most to me (and was the most duplicated by you guys) is Wookiee’s Mega Prison!  So it’s time to turn it over to Wookiee and take a look back at the Mega Prison how-to…

Addicts 5-Year Look Back: The Start of TSTO Anonymous

Back in when we started this site in 2013 we tried to separate ourselves from the loads of other TSTO blogs out there at the time by being different.  In addition to the traditional gameplay posts we wanted to bring you guys different content, fun content.  We wanted to be different, and what better way for a site called TSTO Addicts to be different than to hold regular meetings of TSTO Anonymous?

These meetings were spearheaded by the one, the only, Wookiee.  While I’ve got a few “classic” TSTO-Anon posts I plan to run over the next few days, I wanted to start out this Look Back series with two of the very first TSTO Anonymous posts, since we’re all Addicts here right? It’s funny to see a lot of the “issues” from 2013 still hold true today!

So without further ado, I turn it over to Wookiee circa 2013…

Addicts 5-Year Blogiversary Look Back

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it appears that we have some downtime in TSTO right now.  A little teaser hit our games yesterday…with very limited content…giving us all LOADS of time to twiddle our thumbs waiting for the next event to hit.  So with about a week’s worth of total downtime, something we rarely get in TSTO these days, we thought we’d have a little fun.

In case you didn’t know, our official Blogiversary is August 14th.  At that point, we will have been blogging for FIVE years!  Insanity right? If you told me 5 years ago I’d still be doing this today, I’d tell you that you were a nutcase. Turns out…I’m the nutcase. Anyway, with five years of blogging and nearly 5,400 posts (over 3,000 of which I wrote…yikes!) we thought we’d take this downtime to have a little look back at some of best of TSTO Addicts.

So over the next week, we’re going to go through the archives and pull out some of the “Best Of” posts from each of us.  It’s kind of neat that the downtime, kinda sorta, corresponds with our Blogiversary and we’re able to take this trip down memory lane.  Usually, we’re knee-deep in event coverage when our anniversary rolls around…with no time to break for a look back like this.

We’ll kick things off with a post from WAYYYY back in 2013 from the Wookster a little later this morning.  You’ll get to see how our writing styles have evolved and you’ll see how the more things change, the more they stay the same.  So enjoy the trip down memory lane….I know I had fun going through the archives!

Oh and don’t forget, if you haven’t already, take a minute to fill out our annual Blogiversary Poll here and be sure to ask us a question for our annual Blogiversary Q&A here.

P.S. For those worried…Bracket Battle will still be new on Monday.  So be sure to look out for that.
