My attempt at updating this semi-regular blog continues! A New Year's resolution, of sorts.

What are my modding (and gaming plans) for this year? A whole lot of Borderlands 2, for starters. Looooots of Borderlands 2. In the small amount of time I have remaining after that, there are a few projects:

1. Phantasmagoria (pending 3D practise); a fantasy/alternate reality game universe I've been developing for a few years, on and off.

2. Firestorm over Kaurava; one of the oldest Dawn of War modifications around, we're relaunching the mod with a release for Soulstorm in the works. The SVN has just been setup for all team members and art and code content is being added at a decent rate. For more on this, check the associated mod link on my Mods page.

3. Battlefleet Gothic; one of the only total conversion modifications for Dawn of War (i.e. it changes everything about the game), we're currently on a bit of a break (again) due to RL issues but expect progress on that in the coming weeks.

4. Dark Eldar - the Kabal of Evil; an old Dawn of War mod that is currently gathering dust somewhere. The aim is to make progress with the Dark Crusade version before moving to Soulstorm, hopefully sometime during 2013! This is the lowest of my priorities though, even after Phantasmagoria (and Borderlands 2).

A lot to keep track of, and never enough time to do them all. Here's to 2013!

Mr. Gorb, do you know anything about Heretic? I sent him a sample of a button for the BFG mod and he haven't replied, I hope is not like the button was so disgusting he decided to ignore me :D

Hey Gorb long time follower, wasn't really sure where the proper place to give info on FOK experiences is so i just figured that i would post it here. Not too sure if this is known already but i noticed that when playing against chaos 90% of the time they use forced labor immediately on their slaves without turning it off and as a consequence they all die, this coupled with the computer not really being all too interested in constructing more builder units creates an issue. Again not sure if this is just rehashing but i sure do hope it helps.

Hey man, sorry I missed this, RL events have made me fall behind on ModDB updates. AI is a bit of an issue in the existing builds, but I'll look for this in the future! :)

(my main race is Chaos, so it should be an easy test)

I suppose, it was just a literal title or name of "nice avatar". Pretty fun avatar, btw. Nothing mean
