Well it seems that the mod I wanted to work on has gotten a swift kick in the rear and is now moving along. I hope to start soon, but for now...there is sooooo much coding to go through. It really is amazing what SW FOC can do. The potential in the .xml files is quite surprising.
Now that I finished ME3 and have had time to recuperate, I believe I should announce that I am starting a mod. After the disappointment of that game I thougt it would be a good idea to return to my gaming roots (RTS) and try to make something new like my friends. While it won't be cannon I know it will be fun for me to play at least! :p
Currently, I frigging suck with modding, but my feeble attempts so far have failed because I lacked a reason to learn as I had no use for the skills. Now I do. So starting with coding, type editing, GC scripting, and mapping I will begin the long and painful journey of creating a mod from scratch.
As this will indubitably take months to complete, I won't ask for any help now or try teasing people with details, etc. Once again, this is in the really really early stages (like using a pad of paper for brain storming).
Thanks for reading!!!
Ok, I admit, this isn't really a blog about anything specific, but rather it is a joyful outburst of pure ecstasy regarding the amazing community that currently exists for the immensely enjoyable Star Wars Empire at War and Forces of Corruption expansion. I mean this is an electrifying time not only for gamers, like myself (although I am trying to learn modding and would appreciate any help I can get [thanx Patrick_Koscick]), but also for Modders as there is no shortage of outstanding mods to work on!
A few honorable mentions that have been consuming waaaaaay too much of my time (heck even the updates are tantalizing): SGEAW Reality by Spinobreaker; Super Star Wars by AdmiralAce; Thrawn's Revenge-Imperial Civil War by .Corey and the TR dev team; Pegasus Chronicles by Merlingalgotta and the SGMG; and the new Yuuzhan Vong Mod that has become the congregating place of the who's who of the modding world.
Oh well, gotta keep this short... need to sleep . . . no must play Halo FO . . . NOOOOOOOOO zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
