Meet the Titanic Mod Team
As mentioned on the front page, Titanic mod is a team effort. Without the help of the people below the project could never come as far as it is now. For those who are interested in the faces behind the project, I present you the Titanic Mod Team.
(Biography's will be added/updated through time)
Robin Bongaarts - Lead developer, Modeler, storywriter & Voice Actor
A full nut who goes after his goal no matter the effort. When he sees an objective, he's dedicated on reaching it and will not stop unless he agrees it's really impossible.
This tenancy does not create a discrete way of handling things sometimes but he sees it as an advantage to make him able to pursue what he wants. Therefore his lifemotto is "Those who come up with reasons why not to pursue their dreams shall never achieve theirs."
Kyle Hudak - Interior modeler
When it comes to knowledge, Kyle is a real Titanic enthausiast. In his extremely talented 3D recreations of the ship's interior, there is not a detail missed. Carefully paying attention to those and the dedication put into each model makes him an unmissable key member.
Next to Titanic Mod, Kyle is also hired as the exterior modeler of the very ship for the upcoming game "Titanic - Honor and Glory" developed by Four Funnel Entertainment.
Asa Skinner - Lead Programmer
Name it, and he creates it. There is almost nothing impossible for the programming skilset of Asa when it comes to Mafia modding. Asa is responsible for the gameplay elements such as the cutscenes, missions, interactive functions etc. Without him the ship would be an empty scenery with nothing going on and nothing to do. His remarkably positive attitude also makes him a great asset to the team.
Ronnie Scholtes - Original Soundtrack Composer
Ronnie Scholtes is a passionate and ambitious composer/ producer with an affinity for many different musical genres.Ronnie writes and produces electronic pop music. He's currently working with talented singer Jeron , but he also sings himself. In addition to singing and producing, he also takes piano lessons to further broaden his musical ability. Ronnie is also enrolled in a fulltime music education called: Music/ Producer in Rhoon, The Netherlands. This enables him to guide his career.
Another style he is experienced and comfortable with is soundtracks.
He developed his love for soundtrack music through gaming. He believed he could create powerful atmospheres to draw the player in using music as his weapon of choice. Ronnie's ambition is to reach fans worldwide with his catchy and accessible pop songs and compose the soundtracks for blockbuster games. Although these are just two of his many musical aspirations, his main goal is to be able to create music for the rest of his life.
Arjen van Zwienen - Voice Actor, Thomas (Tommy) Angelo
19 year old Arjen has always been a fan of movies and games, and couldn't stop dreaming about making his own movies and games someday. He likes to mimic people in silly voices and loves to make people laugh. When he finds something he likes he will do anything to make it work, it doesn't matter how long it would take. Alike that nut on top of this page.

Nick started learning about acting at the age of 8.
On that day a senior couple came to his classroom and offered one of the workshops to join.
The man proposed a brass band and the woman offered a drama school.
At first Nick and one of his classmates wanted to join brass band, but after an introductory meeting he realized all those trumpets were not for him, so he decided to try himself at acting.
Since that moment there have been tens of roles and hundreds of performances, different cities and stages, exhausting rehearsals and grateful audiences. What once was a hobby has become Nick's vocation, and by the time he graduated from school, he'd firmly chosen to become a professional actor.
The first project Nick worked on as a voice actor was the modification for Red Alert 3 called Unleashed, in 2011.
