MattAtlas' Developer Application 2 (Coder)

Recommended Posts

This time with real experience.

Ckey/BYOND Username: MattAtlas

Discord Name: mattatlas#6970

Position Being Applied For: Coder

Past Experiences/Knowledge: I was a coder on CM for 3 months and some days, before retiring. I mainly took on major balancing issues (removing mutators, a complete xenomorph rebalance, marine weapon rebalance, many marine kits to name a few) with my most major addition being a modular strains system for each caste. I'd like to say I completely reshaped the game balance and direction during my stay.

Examples of Past Work: Most relevant: https://github.com/Aurorastation/Aurora.3/pull/6940 https://github.com/Aurorastation/Aurora.3/pull/6969 https://github.com/Aurorastation/Aurora.3/pull/6591

Currently working on new human sprites (which is mostly poze's code) and job age minimums.

Matt is a great person to work with. Him and Geeves have been coordinating towards many projects we all share, and the way I see it this is just a natural extension of their duties.

Matt's great. I've been co-oping on him on a ton of projects. The DESTROYS DISARMING pr I made is partially thanks to him, when we brainstormed a solution together. I'm also working with him on the new spicy secret stuff we're cranking out, and I can only say that it's been delightful thus far. He synergizes well with a team, and clearly has experience. The only downside of course is that he's a fake italian, so we'll have to deny him for this reason.


+1, with pasta.

He's done a lot of small scale PRs and bugfixes which usually get merged. (Although some are contested as they are balance changes)

I'm excited what bigger scale PRs hold for him, and if he does feedback threads he should be OK.

I'm going to change my opinion of them, as it is with most coders who decide to work with you and then change their mind when effort is required. I don't believe Matt has the ability to keep interest on a team for an extended time, and any project that requires actual development over months or as a team do not work with him, and fall to the wayside. I know this from experience.
