The Descent Network Team was founded mid 1996
and reached the internet late '96. We are a bunch of friends working together to produce
programs and other add-ons for our loved games Descent and FreeSpace. We are doing this
primary to have fun and secondary to have a field to learn in the practise. You see, if
you want to become a good programmer who later maybe wants to code in the industry, you
have to practise and in order to practise you need a job to do. You can't just sit down
and say "I want to learn coding C++", you have to set yourself a goal and do
end-user-applications to learn it, because its not all about theoretics. Same applies to
graphics, you can't plan to work as a graphics man somewhere later if you never produced
something. And there is not only the learning effect, but also the possibility to provide
samples for your applications later. Noone will hire a graphician before seeing samples.
If you did render something cool for and together with DNet, you can later use that as a
Note: We are no clan and
never intended to be one. We don't search people who only play the game. Those people
should look for one of the other clans out there in the world, there are plenty and there
are a lot of cool ones with great players.
