    Excited to see that I made the list with Matrix Eater! The world waits for me to fix up the new one enough to actually release it. At my current rate it will have to be Matrix Eater Reforged by the time it releases.

    I believe Ghostwolf should be up there as he made various useful modeling/map tools and improved the mdx squisher, such as the mdx sanity test, the "unWeuizer", ect. GhostWolf's Garbage Bin
