The End of an Era, but the Beginning of a New One 2

Enjoy my huge ramblings. XD

So, it has happened.
The GOM website has gone offline, and will not likely be back.
Mr. Singh’s, the site owner of GOM, data server he was using corrupted and deleted all of the files that had been on there for many years.
I do hope that the website comes back. I know that there is another admin of GOM that is willing to start it all over, but whether the idea comes true remains to be seen.
HOWEVER, GOM LIVES ON IN THE DISCORD GROUP WE CREATED SEVERAL MONTHS AGO.
Click this link in order to join! https://discord.gg/fDtEXb2
We have all of the sections we used to have on GOM, including some of our downloads.
When people find time, they put up links to cars and stick them in the pertaining download category.
GOM has been a huge part of my life, especially for the last 3 years.
The community was, and continues to be the most awesome, least toxic, and encouraging forum I have ever been apart of.
I joined in early 2015, after just being a browser of the website since 2014.
After joining, I posted some super crappy mods, but the community didn’t mind.
The kindness of everyone made me dedicate a HUGE amount of time to the game, especially for being in High School.
After only being on the website for a few months, the main administrator, Defiant, upgraded me to the role of “Helpful Member”.
If I am remembering right, there was only one other guy that was in this role.
Having an upgraded role was awesome to me, especially for being only 15. I was super psyched, and did everything I could to be as nice to everyone as I possibly could. (As I always try to be. 🙂 )
After a few more months of helping people out, attempting to get better at my mods, and validating pages onto GOM, I got promoted once again, this time to the role of “Moderator”.
Again, I was super excited, as I am sure anyone would be. Haha!
After several more months, Defiant finally promoted me to “Content Admin” of the website, allowing me to have almost full control of the interface.
While in this role, I refreshed old download links, edited old pages to be more modern, deleted spam messages, etc…
I do miss the website very much. LOL

Some people may ask, “Fireful0, why didn’t you join VStanced AND GOM back in 2015, or up until lately?”
This is my answer:
GOM was, and seems to be a much more professional kind of website. It was dedicated to more of the modding scene, and almost every single active topic to be seen was a WIP thread. GOM had a very clean community, with very little swearing, and more of a camaraderie around the entire website.
I used to be VERY anti VStanced up until recently. This was mainly due to certain key members from VStanced come onto my WIP thread, or even in my PMs, dissing my mods. One of the main ones that has stuck with me, is when one of the members came into my PMs after I had received the original 3d for Fled’s Chrysler V8 Pack. I was psyched about starting learning 3d and had all kinds of ideas with where I could take the mod, but one guy that had not posted on GOM in 2 years, comes in my PMs and tells me I should not even touch it, as I would mess it up, and it wouldn’t live up to the version Fled made. He finished with telling me to give him the 3d so he could work on it.
So, for a large amount of time, I had personal feelings against VStanced.
However, I have put my personal feelings aside, and realize that they are doing the same thing GOM is: Keeping SLRR alive.

Thanks for reading this far!
In the coming days I will fix the mod links in the Download section of this website, as I realize that they are all dead currently.

Have an incredible day / night, and don’t forget to join GOM’s Discord!

G35 and Torino Updates

Hey everybody!!!
Hard to find the time to do any SLRR modifications, especially when I am working a 30 hour a week job with college on the side.
BUT! I was able to get some updates done!
G35 is coming along quite nicely. Shocks are correctly placed so that they look normal from the engine bay POV.
Still have to work out a few diescrepencies here and there, with some 3d problems, but overall, I would say we are closer to a final release.
Also, as yall probably already know, G37 conversion parts and such will not be included.
Along with that, the Torino chassis 3d is coming together quite well!
Have to fix a couple mesh holes, but then the chassis will be done!
Until next time, my peeps!


Updates.

G35 is getting some major updates.
These will include a widebody, updated enginebay, and a cabrio version.
(Special thanks to ah uea / ownzzgames. Great dude doing incredible 3d work)
Also, continuing to work on the Torino. Have a friend working on the scripting errors.
Thanks JF1!


Person stealing my mods, along with many others 1

Hello everyone!
Recently it has been brought to my attention that there is a dude called ∴ S•H•Λ•D•E ∴ on steam who is stealing mine and many other people’s mods. A link to his user account.
99% of his uploads are other people’s works. He gives no credit at all and claims that he will take them down if the author complains. I wrote him requesting he take mine and some others down, he responded with,
I dont know who you are and havent stolen a thing from you. Your “mods” do not have a copyright on them because theyre based off of copyrighted real life items, which is against the law.

Do you have proper permission from the car manufacturers and others to upload their logos, cars, models? THAT is stealing.

If youre really that mad about this, then i will let my lawyers know a case may be incoming. Your mods were not copyrighted. That is fair use.

It isn’t fair use if he has not asked permission or even given credit. The mods that I and many others create take a ton of time. He has stolen my 1967 Coronet, my Muscle Rim Pack, and my pride and joy, the Chrysler V8 Pack REDO V4.

Let’s all stand against this. Commenting on the mods will be the best way to get this handled and the mods we made taken down from the Steam Workshop. Me and others have tried PMing him, but he won’t give in. Maybe by posting public comments on his mod, he will get the mods that we worked our butts off of the workshop.

Thank you all for your continued support.


Gran Torino update

Alrighty!
Gran Torino is coming along quite nicely!
After A TON of 3d work, I finally got the 1972 Torino installed to the 1975 Torino.
It took forever, but I really like the way it turned out.
ALSO! I put some drag side exit exhaust pipes inside the mod, also!
Now, you all are probably wondering about the Infiniti G35.
It will be replaced soon! I gave it to a friend to work the kinks out of it, and it is looking good!
In fact, I believe he may be very close to finished!

Anyhow, thank you so much for all of your support, people!
Not sure how many people look at OperationStation anymore, which is all my fault, as I don’t post as much here as I should.
But to the people who stumble across this webpage. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Anyhow! SOME PICS!


OperationStation News

Alright people!
I decided to re add the pictures page, as it has a ton of nostalgia for me and my beta testers.
Also, I have created a discord page for GOM-TEAM, so feel free to join that too!
We have over 65 members and it is continually going up.
Feel free to get in on the fun! https://discord.gg/XaWPEYQ


G35 is now 95% done!

After over a year off and on in the works, the G35 is just about done.
Everything is just about perfect, I only a couple bugs in Valo that need fixed, but JF1 is helping me through it a ton!
Keep updated on GOM and here!
It will be uploaded most likely next week, if it all works out.
Thanks for all of your support and help everybody! You guys make this enjoyable, and with your continued posts and comments, both on here and on GOM, you have made me just about finish my best mod to date!
THANKS!


G35 to be done sometime in the month!

I have been working on the G35 a ton within the past several weeks, as I want to get it released to the public.
It will have a ton of features, such as good physics, interior lighting, etc…
Stay tuned! More updates to come!

As always, feel free to comment! 🙂


The Next Stage in Life

Hello everyone!
Later next week, me and my family will be leaving the only home I have ever known in Indiana and will moving to Florida.
I am excited for this next chapter in life, and am very anxious to see where God will take me and my family in the future years.
I will be honest: As previously mentioned, I have lived in Indiana for my entire life, but I feel like our time in Indiana is over. I am ready for my next chapter in life.
Now, you would think that I would probably miss many things here, but in all honesty, not really. Some of the things I am going to miss is the snowfall (not the cold of winter, just snow) and the friends I have made.
However, the thing I think I am going to miss most of all are my coworkers who work with me at Papa Murphy’s Take and Bake Pizza.
I have had some good friendships over the years, but the bond that I have created with all of my coworkers takes the cake as being the best I have ever had.
No job will ever be as fun as this one.
I want to personally thank my coworkers for all the fun times that I have had.
I will still be working there for about eight more days, but let me tell you, they will be the hardest part in Indiana to leave.
My goal once I get to Florida is to continue to grow my musical knowledge, and to hopefully be able to play in a band setting.
Being in a band and touring to different countries is a personal dream of mine that I hope becomes reality.

Anyhow, thanks for reading this!
See you in the next. 😉
