We have some new mods to report on at Rise of Nations Heaven. First up is Joe_Tech with "Modern Airbase Recolor". This mod recolors the Modern Airbase and is his first mod, so give him some guidance and feedback, or you can check out his second attempt at the same mod here. He also contributes another recoloring mod for Barracks. You can check that out here. Another first time modder, blackwhyn contributes "Rise of the Ancients v1.0", a more ambitious creation based off of previous mods by me, One_Dead_Angel and Uthum876. Next up is Turkish General returing with "Italians Mod". This mod adds Alpine units to the Romans and changes them to Italy and is based on a mod by LightInfa.

Official HeavenGames CEO Blog Opens

Source: The HG Blog


(I'm pensive about so many things in this photo)

Hey everyone,

My name is Socvazius; I'm the new CEO of HG, but I've been around for quite a long time. I started visiting HG in late 1997 (at age 11), joined the staff in 2000 (my first article, a masterpiece by any standard), joined the executive board in 2003 (I have nothing to say here but I wanted to add a parenthesis for consistency), and became owner in 2005 (when I turned 18). Over all that time, I have been webmaster of 6 Heavens and have done about every possible job.

Offline, I go by the name Sergio Prado and I study history at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts. I am currently working in marketing at Vivendi Universal on Empire Earth III and World in Conflict. I love philosophy, history, physics and politics among other things, and to compensate for my nerdy tendencies I've been known to karate it up as well as do all the other things that college students do. Oh yes.

Anyway, this is my blog! While I will surely use this blog for my own narcissistic ramblings, I intend it to be used mostly to keep everyone up to date on what's going on in HeavenGames, especially the stuff that pertains to my job: management, PR, and all the other fun parts of a gaming website. In fact, I do have some news that you guys might be interested in. For the past couple months the owners have been discussing a major revamp of how HG operates, including its staff management and exactly what services it will provide to the community. We're zeroing in on a finalized plan, so keep your eyes peeled for a freakin huge article that'll be way too long to be worth reading!

Until the next post my friends,
Soccy
