This looks great. Will it be compatible with Mount and Blade: Warband, or just the base game?

This mod is absolutely amazing. I just spent the last half hour playing it, and it was enough to get me to re-purchase the original through Excellent work.

...except for the person doing Cutter's voice. Man! I hope that isn't permanent.

I hope a forthcoming review of this will spark up the old "YOU CAnT R3VIEW M0dz l111ike REAL GAMEZEZ!1!" debate. It's still a mod, but now it's a mod you have to pay, which criteria do you use to judge it? I'm sure that'll cause some heads to explode around here.

But, anyway, good job Alex! I always said this game was awesome.

I left because I got tired of working my butt off for no pay and then getting bitched at endlessly whenever I did anything.

"Why isn't MOTM updated?"
"You aren't supposed to be CRITICAL of mods, because pandering to the same **** will obviously make us EVOLVE!"
"This site is crap and was better when it was grey-scale. v.1."
"MOTY is a joke, it caters only to POPULAR OPINION, when REAL MODDING is all about original ideas and innovation like it was YEARS AGO back during my idealized vision of the past."

Etc. Etc. Etc. I quit.

Got bored of Terry Pratchet's "Going Postal," so now I've moved on to...

"Red Seas Under Red Skies"
by Scott Lynch

Locke Lamora, head thief of the Gentlemen Bastards, is trying to steal an incredible fortune from the vaults of the Sinspire, one of the most highly guarded gambling dens in the world. Standing in his way are a small army of guards, the most ingenious thief-proof vault ever designed and the murderous crimelord that runs the casino.

Much like the first book in the series, “The Lies of Locke Lamora,” the entire novel is basically a high-stakes caper \ heist \ con being played out in a fantasy world that is a strange mixture of Renaissance Italy and Lord of the Rings. Much like the movie, “The Sting,” there are multiple plots going on at the same time, so you are never really sure who is turning on who, what the Gentlemen Bastards’ themselves have planned and who will make it out alive.

As the cover gives away, a bigger threat emerges when midway through executing their plan, the Duke in charge of this island country captures Locke and his cohorts and demands that they masquerade as pirates on the high seas in order to instigate a naval war. From what I’ve read of the novel so far, this sudden switch is both clever--in that putting our land lubber heroes into the tough shoes of gritty pirates is pretty fun to read about--while at the same time pretty distracting, as the heist itself was damn exciting and is virtually forgotten between intense naval battles and the personal struggles of each thief.

While I haven’t finished the novel yet, I can safely say that a lot of the pacing issues present in the first book are missing here, replaced instead with a much deeper look at the central characters and a more engrossing plot overall. I just wish they would get back to stealing, which was far more often that seeing these awesome characters play Pirates of the Carribean.

Is The Witcher tied to that same-named PC title that was recently released?

And thanks for the heads up on the Splinter Cell novels. I've contemplated reading those before and have always held off a bit, but I may take the plunge now.

But the game company that produced, say, Unreal Tournament 2004 is not responsible for what it's product is used for after the fact. The company that produces a handgun is not responsible for someone using it to kill another human being. The same applies to videogames and intellectual copyrights. The only way the IP holder could take Epic Games to court would be to say that sales of their own IP were hurt by modders using the Unreal engine, or, that the mod in question increased sales of Epic's product, both of which would be very, very difficult to prove.

And as for fanboys, yes, Star Wars and Star Trek both have huge fanbases, but then you have to divide from that the number of people who are also gamers, then divide that number by the amount of people who are gamers AND familiar with the modding industry and know how to seek out, install and play these games. The numbers dwindle. Independent games can build quite a loyal following with very little effort, as you need only look to Introversion Software to find out. There's no reason why modders with a bit of work can't achieve the same result.

JoeX111 Feb 6 2008, 10:48am replied:

I fail to see how using another persons intellectual property creates an uneven playing field. Because they already have an installed fanbase? I suppose that's true, but then you'll also have nitpicky fanboys tearing it apart in ways you won't if you create an original idea. If your original idea is good enough, it'll create it's own fanbase that'll grow far beyond the few fans of SHOW X that go out looking for an independently created modification based on it.

And billions of dollars in litigation? Wow. If that much was at stake and so easily in the grasp of these companies, you'd think they would have done this by now. Except, the angry IP holders would hold the burden of proof to show that a significant portion of the game sales resulted from this specific mod existing on their platform, which would be very, very, very hard to prove, and therefore, will not happen.

Just finished The Lies of Locke Lamora a few days ago. It runs a little slow and long in the middle, but man, what a finish. I definitely plan to pick up the rest when they hit paperback.

Now I'm on to...

Going Postal
Terry Pratchett

A con man and petty theft is put in charge of the Discworld post office and hilarity ensues.

This is actually the first Discworld book I've read in quite some time, having moved on to other books sometime in my senior year of high school.

Speaking of Pratchett, apparently, the author himself is diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Really depressing news.
