When did you join SAES?
Back in 2010, I was looking for some other games to play after spending a lot of time on games like World of Warcraft, Runescape, League,...
I had always loved GTA San Andreas, but never played it online, so I joined an SAMP server on which I was part of a SWAT team.
After a while, SAMP turned out to be quite laggy and as this bothered me a lot, I searched for alternatives and found MTA.
I initially roamed around between servers but in 2011, I decided to dedicate my time to SAES. I freeroamed trying out several jobs without joining any C/S/G, until I became part of ALT.
As an ALT member, I spent time on the server until 2014, when I took a 5 years break due to my real life job becoming a big priority in my life, during this break I rejoined for some days in 2015, but I never found time to genuinely join the server until 2019.
In September 2019, I decided to make my return to SAES as I have more time available and as I am planning to keep coming back, so here I am.
Are you/have you been part of any C/S/G?
° As mentioned in the above answer, I've been part of ALT since 2011, I quickly became [ALT]JojoDb<AirM> (Air Mechanic)
° During my short return in 2015, I became honorary as [ALT]JojoDb<RED>
° At my return in 2019, I've become [ALT]JojoDb<P> (Pilot) but switched to [ALT]JojoDb<M> (Mechanic)
° In 2019, I applied for FBI, I am currently probationary [FBI]JojoDb<SA> (Special Agent)
Do you have building experience in SAES?
I've only recently discovered the /construction panel, therefore I have not had a lot of opportunities to gain building experience.
As soon as I discovered the construction panel, I did try building sceneries with the limited amount of 50 objects and I've shared some of these in the ZIP Discord.
Why do you want to join ZIP?
Back in 2011-2014, as an ALT member, I've hung out with Tilong, so I've seen him work on ZIP constructions.
I was interested in doing this myself, but never got to apply for ZIP back then.
Now that I have returned to SAES, I've joined the ZIP discord and found out how to use the /construction menu.
Building stuff and being creative has always been part of me, as I work as a software engineer in real life.
The desire to be creative has also been fulfilled in the past as I have played Minecraft for quite some years.
ZIP seems like an enjoyable group filled with people that have a passion for building and creating the most wicked constructions that live up to their imaginations, while remaining professional and respectful.
How do you think you can contribute to ZIP?
I love challenges, so I always challenge myself to do things better and improve every time I do something.
When building stuff in as a Civilian Worker, I've noticed that I always try to strive towards perfection (alignments, symmetry, shapes,...).
I think striving to reach perfection is what makes a ZIP worker really great and will improve the quality of ZIP's constructions.
