If you have any other idea that may add to this mod, feel free to share them.


Doesn't that mod sound great? Want to download it when it's finished? Well, if you're a Mac user, too bad. Since Ambrosia refuse to release the source code for the Mac version, this and other great Dev Mods can't be made for Mac. That's why I'm starting this petition to get Ambrosia to release their source code. Reply to this topic, or, better yet, e-mail Ambrosia at, well, find out an e-mail address and mail them.

Being that the first copy of Uplink that I ever owned was for the Mac, and the fact that I want to port the Onlink mod to mod, I HEREBY JOIN THE PETITION

I would also like to make mention the Ambrosia would be doing their customers (if not themselves) a favor in allowing more variety in the game. Please consider the release.

And I asked Chris. The way it sounds, he's never seen the mac port-code

Sounds like a great idea. I for one think it should be available for the Mac, even though I am a PC user.

Maybe I should move this topic to the general forums, as not many people check this one (not even me :) )

I have never used a mac in my live, but depriving a lot of people of what seems a potentially fantastic mod, as well as possible future mods, seems very unfair.

I hereby place my name upon this petition.

I don't own a Mac, and I don't know anyone who owns a Mac, but I still feel that Ozy's right here, so I'll sign, both here and in the General forum.

P.S. That's probably my 1st post in this forum ever. And could well be the last as well.

Then, they'll decide :/

Sure, they can get custom gateways and themes, but they add little to gameplay.
