Hear ye, hear ye. Okay, I’m sending out an open call for testers for blueprint 2. Yup, that’s right. The final version is coming and I’m looking for a few good people (about 10 or so). Here’s your chance to get your hands on the latest and greatest, get some cool tools for building new objects and get some tools out to the world before someone else. Now read on carefully as it’s important if you want to get into the club.

First off, you must be somewhat adept at 3D. While it’s not necessary for using blueprint normally, the new features are what are the main thing here and I need someone who understands vertices, faces, edges and all that 3D stuff. If you’re in that boat read on. If not, please don’t bother applying.

Second, you must understand that this is beta software and as such is prone to crashes and such. You may loose your work at any point, so this is not for people that want to make objects and have deadlines or are easily frustrated.

Third, you must be communicative and willing to devote some time to this. Having an hour a week just doesn’t cut it as I don’t want to get the software out to the masses in 2005. This doesn’t mean you have to quit your job and lock yourself at the computer for days on end. A few nights a week and maybe a few hours on the weekend would be nice. You also have to provide feedback. Getting the program and not saying anything about it (good or bad) days on end does nobody good.

Okay, if you think you’re up to the challenge then get out your keyboards and fire off an email to me. Please describe why you think you should be a tester. I’m not just going to pick the first 10 people. No, you don’t have to write an essay but saying you should get into the program “just ’cause” isn’t good enough. You need to convince me you’re worth my time. Sorry, but I’ve had far too many experiences in the past to just blindly accept anyone at this point. Also in your email you must put the words “[BETA TEST]” in your subject, otherwise your entry will be ignored. Period. Also, no ICQ messages or forum postings will be accepted for this.

So I’m a tyrant. If you don’t like it then write to your congressman and take and aspirin.
