Vaibhav and Masih, nice to know your names as well!
Haru, can both Vaibhav be the same person? Just asking.
Anıl, the pronunciation of your name is completely opposite as I imagined, it's actually cool : )

Erm...I would prefer to be addressed as "Lim" or "CK". "Chin" or "Khoon" is well...weird... XD

"Lim" is my family name. While westerners have their family name placed behind (and hence, "last" name), Chinese people have their family names placed in front, you see. "Chin Khoon" is a transliteration of my Chinese name, which is composed by two Chinese characters. Likewise, my family name is composed by a single Chinese character too. Ya'know, block characters.

Haru should understand what I'm trying to express seeing that he is from Japan.  Happy Smile 1 Japanese language has similar concepts too.

Hi there Haru, I assume that it's fine to address you this way. Do tell me if you're not okay with it. Normal Smile

Well, I found out this NFSMW community patch some time ago, right before NFSCars was migrated to Driving Passion. This project drew my attention instantly as I liked to mod my games (Though I never learnt how to make one), so I decided to follow the progress of this project. I've posted a few times in Driving Passion too, asking some questions and stuff. So, you can say that I joined GTRCars and Driving Passion solely for this project in the first place, and it led me here eventually.

Btw, I wasn't there to witness the incident that occurred in DP community, so when I found out that everything related to the patch was gone, I panicked for a little bit XD. Ended up Googling the project and it led me to this site. Cheers. :o

What makes "Chin" so special? XD

I can't really remember the result from Google, so I checked my browsing history. Turns out that I did Google for the patch, but ended up with nothing. My bad. I discovered why I learnt the existence of this site, however. It was mentioned in Arturo's DP profile, and I stumbled upon it when looking around for clues in DP. I wish this helped! Normal Smile

I seriously don't know, it's just my weird sense of humor 👽

Thanks for the feedback. It's really important to know that, so people can arrive at the right place for updates on the patch.

I added a link to NFSS in my signature in DP.
I hope it wasn't edited/deleted.

I went back to DP to check it out, apparently your signature is unmodified, other than the thread itself being locked. The link to NFSS works too. Older posts however, have no signature attached.



I believe we should stop here as it is derailing the thread already :lol:

I fixed the links today.
Back to the topic, CK, your name would be read as Lim Chin Khoon, right?

Yep, though it would become Chin Khoon Lim when put in western style. Anyway, just keep in mind that Chinese people traditionally put their family name in front of their given name, that's it.

I don't have a western name though, my parents didn't give me one, and I never had any idea of what to name myself. Nowadays, quite a lot of Chinese people has a western name, either given by parents or coined by themselves, mostly to cope with the internalization (and perhaps, to sound cool.)

I, too, think that Chinese people's English name is kinda out of place in an English conversation, that's why I came up with CK. However, I would certainly like to hear how does it sound to foreign people who had little to no knowledge in Chinese language.  Normal Smile

To me, to use one's real name is the right thing. In my opinion, you don't need a western name. For example, Haru uses his name instead of a western name.

Well, you got a point. But to me, placing a Chinese name in an English sentence sounds kinda weird. Well perhaps it's just me. Either way, I believe CK should be a good nickname too Happy Smile 1
