Fall Of Nations First Update For 2012

Greetings Guys and Girls From Madiba127 Studios, and welcome to the first update for fall of nations in 2012, hope this year goes well for you all

Madiba127 Studios has been working on the plan for the storyline of the mod, some of you may have already seen part of that on our special update, for those who have not then check it out on our forum, and post your suggestions, ideas and the like on there as well

part of the progress made on Fall Of nations is some redesigning of some buildings like the PF Power-plant and Gauss Cannon

So here is the first showcase of the new Gauss Cannon, Please not nothing is textured or scaled
PF: Gauss Cannon Redesign

Also Here is something else we have been talking about:
Madiba127 Studios Plans on getting our own Domain Name, we have been meaning on doing this for some time, this will allow for us to give you a wiki on FoN Units, the storyline etc
But We would like your Help To Do so, by helping donate.

But here is the thing if you donate you will get access to a special unit (this is possible via a private version for you) and access to our Closed Beta testing for each side and early access to the full Closed Beta
This might be sometime till this but we keep track of all donations and your name (user or real) and e-mail will be recorded do not worry we will not give any of your details away

To Donate go to Madiba127studios.weebly.com
this website will also give you an incite to our team and what they do

Thanks For Reading and Stay tuned for more updates
Before we go here is the newest track from one of our composers

Zero Hour - Mod DB
  
Thanks, Madiba127 and the Fall Of Nations Team

umm, I'm not sure if your legally allowed to ask for donations, No mod is permitted to make money off of their mod.

I'm sorry to bring this news, I may be misinformed though....

I think you mean, they are not allowed to make money off of the mod. However if people want to donate to the team so they can make the mod thats okay... I think.

Meaning, If they had us pay for the mod, that'd be illegal.

it is not illegal to ask for donations however if we where to sell the mod then that would be.
Seeing as we are not making money off it and we are only asking for your help it is fine

ok, all donations would need to be documented and insured to go to mod expenses and nothing else.

That is more what I meant.

Also, I'd recommend you guys settle on a Team name to help facilitate the process.
Also, no offense, but it might be a bit early to ask for donations, given your progress and how you already have forums here.

You might increase success if you fully explain what your own domain name will have to over current moddb formatting.

From my experience, the larger the fan base, the more like they will be to go to an external site.

) Sorry i do not know what you mean

)i thought the same thing but i saw no harm in asking anyway, a lot of the progress is behind closed doors and i can not show you guys

You might increase success if you fully explain what your own domain name will have to over current moddb formatting.
)if you read the post you can see i have already said that

From my experience, the larger the fan base, the more like they will be to go to an external site.
)This depends on the person but i have delt with this before, this is not my only project i am involved with a lot more

I'm not sure about your team mates but just calling it Madiba127 Studios for the entire duration sounds less inclusive.
Maybe I'm just nit picking.....

Also I personally think it's a little unfair telling people they will get insights into the mod team and your guys work only to those who donate....at least that is how I understood it.

From personal experience, I'd recommend devoting time to as few projects as possible this will increase project drive and production. Try not to spread yourself too thin, or risk presenting low quality work.
