but without IV supporting those things right now that's pretty much a dead end, and the lack of support rubs off on me and makes me disinterested too.


That's the way all/most community projects for a gaming company go, though. I once did a map for the Homeworld universe for Relic (on their forums, my alias there is Norsehound) and part of the reason I didn't go through with the 'more accurate' version was because of lack of input from Relic. I got one or two posts stating their interest, but since then Relic has moved away from creative IPs to being the lapdogs of Games Workshop, and so no interest in Homeworld. Everyone loved the map though.

I think the only gaming company (that I know of anyway) to encourage community development is Valve.

Very insightful, TGF.

And the huge support and caring they give to their community is a big reason to their success (Mostly their Mod support - CS, DoD, TF).

Ah yes, of course, Byron is working on MW...

Except, of course, that he worked on optimizing D+, and that he no longer works at IV...


But he's definitely working on MW!!

I used to do that and now I am hated for it. Advice: Learn from my examples and other people's mistakes, simply don't repeat them, and you'll be good to go. At least, that's what I can say for you, mastix, not Jordy...

Mastix is Israeli, therefore he'll suck no matter what you do.

That rule only applies partially to me, though :P
