James Mcnicoll aka "Planck"
15th December 1952 - 7th April 2010
OFPEC Site Admin Planck joined the site in 2002, the early days of the Community. His forum sig says "I know a little about a lot, and a lot about a little", which is a surprisingly apt description. Planck had skills and interests in many areas, yet practiced his crafts relatively quietly and without fanfare. So who was he?
When Bedges, Planck and I sat down and started this interview almost a year ago, Planck was reluctant to answer the questions. It wasn't until recently that he responded to the questions that Bedges and I came up with. Planck didn't need that kind of recognition to feel great about helping someone out with their project, no matter the skill level of the person. Whether it be modelling or configs, or texturing or islands, there isn't a single aspect of the game that he didn't have his fingers into or some knowledge about.
Planck's breadth of knowledge about the game, his drive to be as accurate as possible, and his friendly nature will not be forgotten. The staff of OFPEC will sure miss such a great legend.
