Mixed bag. - 10 Feb 2006

Ok, we have three new mods and one old mod to present today. First, Officerpuppy has released a new Flagpack3 mod, included in this set are new flags for Prussia, Ottomans and Piedmont. The Austrian naval flag mod has also been added to our database, this is an old mod Officerpuppy released but was missing from the database. A modder by the name of Espartero whos participation with other modders on the Spanish Imperial Glory fansite www.Imperialglory.tk has allowed me to upload one of their mods. The mod is titled ModOrdenesv1.1. This mod adds Spanish orders for the Infantry commander for France. This mod goes well with the Spain mod.

As always, you can find these files in our database.

Into the shadow. - 29 Jan 2006

Officerpuppy has released a new mod, titled Shadow mod, this small mod removes the highlights that appear under soldiers (the orange, green circles) and replaces them with simply their shadow. You may find this new mod in our database.

And, if you think Officerpuppy should stop refering to himself in the third person everytime he announces a new story, please feel free to comment

Praetorians Section Launched! - 24 Jan 2006

Today we have launched our Praetorians section, the last Pyro game for which we still didn't had a fansite running. Even though the game is out for a couple of years already, it's still worth checking it out as we also have some never-seen-before materials posted (at least, so we think/hope. ) Not so surprisingly though, I mean c'mon, it's TAFN you're visiting; always on front when it comes to the latest news.

Looking for Prey staff! - 15 Jan 2006

Well look at that it appears that we haven't wished our visitors and everyone else a Happy New Year so of all people I have to wish you [fill in whatever it is you wish here].

With that out of the way it's time to move on.

We are looking for staff to help us to start and maintain a new site for our network.

The game would be Prey a very promising title developed by Human Head in co-operation with 3DRealms (you know Duke Nukem and formerly know as Apogee which we have all played some game from when we were young(er).

Our placeholder site is already up @ http://www.preyfansite.com

Now onwards to the positions to fill in, shameless copy/paste from Rutam coming up:

Since this is a full fledged fansite, not just forums.. our focus will be on developing quality content. The network webmasters will assist the staff in filling up the content, but still the site will need a Webmaster to co-ordinate things. Here are some reqs. expected from the Webby  (the webmaster will appoint a co-webmaster if need be)


  • A veteran of the 3DR community, someone who knows everyone well..
  • Should be a good linguist - The network will extend it's gaming/press contacts to the webmaster, so this is a MUST!
  • Should have decent amt. of knowledge about the game, it's history.. (this is a no-brainer actually..)
  • Has to have basic HTML knowledge
  • Has to be 18+ and <50
  • Needs to have some experience with HTML editors and scripts
  • Should be of a sound mind
  • Should be a non-smoker (naah.. I am just kidding :P)

Apart from the Webmaster, the site will need quality news posting from News Posters. Some reqs. as follows :


  • An active member of the community
  • Should be a decent writer. ( One of the news posters will handle the game review as well {hopefully a preview too} )
  • Smartassness and a good sense of humour (unlike mine) will be a plus!
  • Should have decent amt. of knowledge about the game.
  • Has to have basic HTML knowledge ( most news posting will be done through a script.. so this isn't mandatory )
  • Should listen to Heavy-Metal ( wtf )

This core staff will later appoint forum moderators. After the launch, the network itself will have limited control over the site. It is upto the Webmaster, Co-webby and the news posters to take it wherever they want it to go. There won't be any creative restrictions, or censorship over the content thereafter.

Interested? Contact us at: webmaster@preyfansite.com , we're looking forward to your mail!

Merry Christmas!! - 25 Dec 2005

The TAFN staff would like to wish a Jolly Good Christmas to all of our visitors (and Happy Chanukah to Dave.) May Santa and Rudolf the red nose alcoholic (sorry, couldn't resist ) reindeer bring you all the presents you hoped for, and we wish you moments of joy, pleasure and good health!! We also hope you'll have a white Christmas (even you, Rutam. )

It's a pity that this great period of the year is always over too soon. It has one upside though; you won't have to suffer from all those annoying Christmas songs on the frickin' radio stations anymore.

Happy holidays!!!
