I'm a student in London studying video game design, development and some history... and some other stuff, on one of those courses that gets slagged off by everyone for being too unfocused... so yea, hate me :'(

I put new content, but thinking about it, new maps never let me down, even if they're not so hot, where as new content sometimes really changes a game and turns me off it. On the whole I still get more exited about new content though...

I haven't read his comments and if he has been saying things like that, he's in the wrong as well.

As for the ModDB community, looking at the recent uproar over a mod team daring to go commercial (indie... so it's hardly selling out) and countless posts there which were even less inventive, and even more insulting than "you also have the right to know your role and shut your mouth." I was using your original response as a typical example of the ModDB community, not you personally, since you're above response is pleasingly and surprisingly well formulated, articulate, and I take some of your points, as I have now scanned down the page an seen one of the posts from the author that you were talking about.

So yea, fair enough, and now I'm done with this thread... it's all getting too confusing and I simply don't care enough.

JohnnyMaverik Mar 20 2011, 12:37am replied:

I find it shocking that ModDB is willing to spend time pulling down mods, but not users like you. This place quite often turns into a cesspit of sheer rudeness and petulant idiocy. If you don't have a constructive, dialectic response, don't respond.

I don't know why I'm bothering really, ModDB is a great tool for the modding community, and the modding community is great, the ModDB community however is a pile of crap. A bunch of 13 year olds throwing around insults they've only just learned and generally resembling a badly behaved primary school class.

Please grow up ModDB community, we're allowed to disagree with each other with out it sparking a bunch of flaming and general bad feeling.

How was this a threat to moddb? Newgrounds get slagged off by confused mainstream press now and again, never did it any harm, quite the opposite in fact, and the people who use this site know you don't make the content that's hosted here, so we're hardly guna stop using it because there's a distasteful mod hosted.

I say put it back up, it has a right to be here.

Looks pretty good, I agree to an extent with sgccode9's comment about the text. I could read it but it wasn't exactly easy on the eye. Only other thing I would say is that custom some sfx would be cool but that's just me being very nit-picky, there's nothing wrong with using the default HL2 sfx.

Sharing content is great, it needs to be done for this community to thrive. Not crediting content and disregarding peoples request to do so, or even to not use their content, is not good, and will only create an atmosphere of mistrust in the community and put up barriers for interaction and collaboration between different mod teams and individual modders. Stealing content from commercial titles is stupid and you shouldn't do it unless you have solid permission to do so, in which case it isn't stealing, but good luck getting that permission.

That's pretty much my views in a nutshell.

Actually EA never forced it, If you buy say Mass Effect, Mirror's Edge or Dead Space from Steam your getting it SecuROM free. Ubisoft and 2k are a different matter however, amongst others of course.... The Borderlands DLC and FarCry 2 both come with the 5 install limit, which is fking ridiculious.
