Interview with Chrizzy
First off, for the people who don't know you, please inform them of your name, age and current location.
My name is Christian Aashamar, im 16 year old and live in Norway!
When did you start jumping? Did someone introduce you to kz or did you find it by yourself?
A little over 1 year i saw a map on a server name kz_6fd_volcano.. It sounded fun so i joined. I didnt really know what to do but i just jumped, couldnt to the strafe jump :) No one introduced me.
How did you find Xtreme-Jumps? How long ago was this?
I found it through kzmaps.co.uk :) It was 389 days ago
You've been admin even before I joined XJ :O. You must have been made admin quickly. When did you become admin? Are you still happy with your position today or do you want a promotion? ^^
Don't remember when i became a admin.. I think it was a little before christmas.. Of course i'm happy with my position, testing maps^^
Did you have a mentor who helped you in your kz "career" or are you self-taught?
I thought myself how to strafe without "w" some weeks after kz_xj_mountez was released, after that the jumping came along fast.. So to answer you're question, no :)
You have had some records for XJ, and I know you do a lot for kzno too :). Out of all records for XJ and kzno, which is your favourite record and why?
My favourite would be kz_ea_templeblocks in 05:18 and kz_6fd_volcano in 02:09.. Cant choose :P
Now on to some mapping questions:
You are well-known for the maps you have contributed to kz, but which do you feel is the best that you have made? Why?
Out of released maps: kz_undergroundvillage, because its the first map where i have made some okay details and stuff
Out of all the maps and mappers, which map is your all-time favourite and who is your favourite mapper?
Favourite map: kz_man_climbersxp[b]. Favourite mapper: Kreedz
When and why did you start mapping? Did you want to map like Kreedz? What else influenced you? (lots of questions xD)
I started just some weeks after i started jumping, yes i wanted to make maps like Kreedz and thats why i started. (Not many answers xD)
What do you think of the current state of maps being released? Could they be any better? If so, how?
Alot of them are really nice! One thing they could be more of: oldschool! :D
Is there any advice you can give to new mapmakers who want to make nice maps like you do? ;)
Use the Vertex Tool and Clip to and make some nice mountains, then only the vertex tool is needed to make some nice oldschool jumps :D Use noclip and maybe texture lighning if it fits with the map :)
Moving swiftly on to your life away from the computer....what else do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
