Hello there, seen your thread on facepunch. I had seen "Thrive" before on moddb, and as a person who liked spore then, had tracking. I forgot about this project soon after, and years after, seeing you guys on FP was an interesting thing. Unlike the first time, now I'm a little affiliated with programming, I think I can help
Anyway, I'm .. "meh" in both Lua and C++, but my C++ knowledge is really fresh (Tried to get into openGL last week) and I assume I can refresh that Lua easily too. I can't promise much in skill, interest and time right now but I would love to try nonetheless. I'm a little acquintaced with Git.
If none works out, maybe I could do some "technical writing" too.
This would be the first time I work on a real project, with a team.
P.S.: Again, I can't promise anything; I have a bad habit of promising something, and losing interest and never completing it. At least I'd like to try!
