Ask, and I will answer (c)
Eh, looks better in the artworks :\
Wait, so Sargoth is now a nation of its own?
Damn these maps look wicked!
Well, at least now we know what the Skull of Vaermina was made of
I agree. Back then, you'd go on an forum and ask for help, and everyone'd reply with advice and tips. Nowadays, you most often get sent to the tutorial section, bonus points if they give you a link to whatever tutorial you need. Now I'm not saying that all modders or modding communities are like that, but it's widespread.
I guess that with the amount of tutorials that are made and projects that are abandoned, most people just don't want to bother with newbs or 'already-covered-in-a-tutorial' questions, though personally, I couldn't understand squat of the modding wiki for Stellaris. Thank the gods there's a modding tutorial section on Steam!
Welcome to the 2010's, where everything is rubbish, but comes in a pretty package. =/
Wasn't Counter-Strike originally made as a standalone game using Half-Life assets?
But I agree with what you're saying, people indeed became too protective of content and it's hurting the modding community. I know a guy, he's remaking Star Wars Conquest - a mod for M&B Warband. He's a good modder, makes all the new assets from scratch, but he can't manage to make everything on his own, and most of the people he recruits end up flaking out on him. He can't port assets from other games because that's stealing, but even if he legally buys assets from specialized sites, he'll still need to optimize them for Warband's engine, which is still a tedious task for even a handful of people, not to mention that it'd be a huge waste of money, considering the mod itself is free. So what is he supposed to do, abandon the project? It's just sad.
Well, technically total conversions didn't go away entirely. There still are mods that turn a game into something different, or at least change the main campaign. Most Mount and Blade mods are basically this.
Why they're not as common as cosmetic mods? Because they take way more effort, and most people (especially gamers that grow up and have real life to sort out) just don't feel motivated enough to invest into it, especially if the total conversion's gonna just be uploaded on moddb or other sites for free downloading, or...
...if gaming companies block such projects. This has happened to Aperion and Battlefront 3 (technically, these weren't mods), and to at least one mod that used Skyrim's engine and assets, but was advertised as a game of its own (they even attempted to sell it, iirc).
But I'd rather see more TC mods indeed.
Hmm, looks more like Quake or Q2 than Doom, but as long as it's done right (as in, in the same style of classic fps), who cares?
What is this?
Those AT-RT's look like stock race-cars :D
Looters? Dude, those guys are pushovers!
But the Kaiserreich was supposed to be Swadia before (Hitler) took over. One of the companions is a parody of Kaiser Wilhelm and says this.
Maybe, but territorially they don't match at all! Also, their town icon has an Orthodox church, which doesn't work with the Austria theory. Maybe Greece?
*Drools* Lookin' good!
I think that since the mod's focus is on the Clone Wars, there won't be much GCW content. In the original SWC there was the CR-90, but it was replaced.
The CIS culture was made to replace the original Rebel culture, this was done for convenience (mainly because certain planets were controlled by certain factions in SWC. Also, the faction colours make sence this way, don't they?). And keep in mind that the mod is still pretty raw, so not everything has been converted.
Don't know about marriages and troop tree designer.
I can advertise on JKHub, but no promises.
So who are these Helvetians anyway? They're obviously not the real-life Switzerland, so who are they? Italy?
'Dat *** though
So that's where these armours are from! And all this time, I kept wondering.
OOOh, let's see, let's see! :)
Can you please add an electric guitar weapon - or two? One as a two-handed club and the other as a kind of rifle that shoots electricity or whatnot. That'd be pretty awesome.
Can't wait for the next update!
So, any updates?
So, this mod makes Calradia an open first-/ third-person world? Like in Skyrim, for example?
Hi, I'm getting an error with the GL renderer. How can I fix it?
A somewhat dumb question but............................how do I run it on older systems? I install the mod, the game starts, first it gives me errors for removing something, then it takes forever to load the level, and then I get terrible framerate, and can't fix it no matter how I tweak the settings. I ended up lowering everything as much as I could, and the framerate was still bad, textures get pink background, and some surfaces are dark blue.
Nice! But I actually liked the original Longsword, it looked so unusual.
