We are fatefully interested in hearing your thoughts.

This mechanic is meant to contrast with ASI, where units cost power, and is meant to give a different kind of strategic element.

It's also meant to resent people power.

I think you need a snickers:

Look,
My point is that moding is a basic form of game development. And that we have done much of what is considered game development in the pursuit of this project.

You should mellow out man. it's not like I'm criticizing your work.

moding is the basics of game development.
Many of the same skills and principles used in both.
What we have done here is game development.

Mod development is a sub field of game development.

And once again, we are not selling anything.

The SSLDor Dream 51 was a spaced abased mercenary faction.
I didn;t write a full origin story yet because they were so far out from development.

if you look back on our page, you can find D51:

There were some Animations I had to pay out of pocket for too. You don't hear me bitching about that. Most Animators don't want to work for free.

He's right that we can't sell a mod but we are not selling a mod here.
Our future plans include making our own stand alone game.

If anyone could get money for doing nothing in return they would do it. Pope show gratitude. yes it;s a transaction, you do something, you get something in return, but we are not selling anything.

You seem like your a person with very ridged definitions of things. A very black and white person. Now if your an SJW you'd call me racist.

We are not selling anything.
We are not selling C&C stuff at all.
Everything that your getting is original work. The art and stories of ASI colony and D51 are original works.

We were actually thinking of having some physical goods like a Tiberium Secrets calendar and 3D printing Tib sec stuff. That didn't make the cut because a dpt lead convinced me that physical rewards would be too much of a hassle to get shipped.

I know we are in a grey area. This mod is set in C&C. We have just done such a good job that it melds into it so well that it looks like official work.

And your a fool if you think modding hurts the games industry. Moding is where many of them started it's where inspiration happens It's where passion is king. moding is the life blood of gaming.
Your conventional way of looking at competition just doesn’t apply to games. Mods do not compete with games because they do not preclude you buying the game or a competitors game. Infect, it revitalizes the game’s community by having more longevity.,and people have to buy the games to play the mods.

I bet if you ask most moders if they could make money from moding they would say yes they would want to.

Not allmods are worth paying for, not all mods deserve to be at that point. But a few bucks here and there just goes to help the developer. Why is patreon ok for everything else except game development? It's ok for music, ok for videos, ok for writing. But when you bundle it all up in a game it’s suddenly not ok.

And yes, we are game developers. Not all moders are game developers but a lot of them are. I understand your point that it’s a dangerous grey area of legality. Most mods don't do what we‘ve done. Most don’t take completely original IP and add it to an existing franchise.

Again we have not sold anything. We have not marketed anything. We never claimed that C&C was ours and we want to make money off of it. The franchise setting is just that a setting.

Furthermore, I don't understand why you didn't bring this patreon issue up back in April when we 1st set it up.It’s not like you signed up and want your money back and we won’t give it to you. Your basically saying your outraged that we dare to ask for donations.
In my opinion any mod can make a patreon. Look people on youtube didn’t write the songs they are singing but they are able to have patreons some even sell their music on itunes.
Making a mod is like writing a love letter to the developers. You’re a fool if you think otherwise.

I think you’re the one who is confused.
The patreon is a voluntary thing, there are no pay walls. There are no pay X get X in return.
It's a thing to demonstrate you support what is going on, and that you want the work to continue.
If this is some sort of scam pyramid scheme, it's a poorly run one. Which it’s not. I'm sure that you would agree that making mods is more difficult than making a video. Then why are you willing to pay a youtuber patreon? and not a mod/ game patreon. If we were a standalone game, we'd be selling our work.
It takes hours to come up with a story or make a piece of art. here, we’re asking for $25 a month. That breaks down to $0.15625 an hour. Artists make on average $25 an hour.

And yes, we are a company. We are a registered LLC with the state of California, registered in oct 2017.
Volunteer jobs are volunteer jobs. If you volunteer at a soup kitchen or a crisis hotline or a volunteer firefighter, wherever. It's still a job. Just because you’re a volunteer doesn't mean it’s somehow less important. It's just that the motivation is different.

Project Coordinator coordinates a project. I've gotten paid jobs with my background. I've held the role of project coordinator twice in meat space.
Debating the worth of my role to you is pointless. Sure. If it was a paid job that be better. But most hobby jobs are not. Indie company CEOs are CEOs, weather they call themselves that is their business.
Waiting around to only do somethign if your get a paid is a foolish way to live a life.
I’ve looked at job descriptions and I try to match what I do as a passion to those job descriptions.
Also FYI, Intense! Already knows of our Patron, he is one of our patrons.
During my discussion with him at the last GDC he thinks that paid mods will become more of a thing.
Debating what is and isn’t a job with you is a long process, and I can do it if you really want me to.

sigh,
no
We had set up the patron just last year or so. As for my titles, we are a company. We strive to be as professional as possible. you guys didn’t much like Project coordinator / producer Pr lead, lead writer either. Now that it's basically over you guys want to play arm chair quarterback. No one ever complained to me about my titles before now.

And as for my background on my profile page. believe me or not, but it’s true. It's not that hard to find me and my work and realize it's true. It’s not like I’m claiming to be rich…

Regardless,we are ending because we scoped too big,and not really because of anyone in the community, If we were EA we would blame all of you for not supporting us enough.

I Think asking for moderate activity on the page is a reasonable request...Ad that PM had to do with Tiberiian Eclipse...
We listen to all feedback, it;snot our fault there are some voices that are louder than others.

Iknow you guys want to see mod progress over event converge, and if we and mod progress, we would have shown it.

Upon reflection, it might have been a somewhat impossible standard, because those active people had set such a high standard that it was difficult to match it. Look,I gave them all closed testing status, it had to be fair to some degree.

I'm sorry if you felt wronged some how. I didn;t know you felt this way, now it;s too late to do anything about it.

1. The art work was done for the team or a previous team. It was not "taken" from anywhere.
2. We had a release in April of this year.... what do you mean you wait for years to see nothing?
3. The conference is known as the Game developers conference (GDc) where game developers from around the world and from around the industry gather. It's known as the premier event for game development.
4. The patreon is for the community to show support for past and continued developments. youtubers have patreons and few have issue with that. Remember, your getting all this content for free. We simply wanted to see how many of you would support our developments. If the patreon was moderately successful we wouldn't be ending the project so soon. WE Are All Volunteers.
5. Your assertion that we are a "fake mod" only makes sense if we were masquerading as an indie project. There is nothing fake about the work we do.
6.WE are a company to manage Intellectual property rights, that's it. And for future goals.
7. We've accomplished a lot, and it's sad people like you choose not to see that.
8.14 year old would no have been able to approach the quality we have,no chance.

Not too much, he said there would't be any new music, but ringmastering the content is a challenge.

They ll said they couldn't talk about it that much, unfortunately.
