The Jedi are intentionally based on eastern mystic beliefs. Study those and you'll see what is being said.
So, will we be able to fill the pokedex in this game (in other words, catch all the pokemon)?
They wouldn't touch us. We are a bit of a hot potato, given the legal issues. We would need a license or sub-license from TE or SZ.
No it isn't a scare tactic. It is an essentially free process where both they and the recipient spend no money. It is a standard business courtesy; even giants like Pixar get C&Ds. The reason they wouldn't bother with TATW is that the mod is already in millions of people's hands and they have no way of undoing that. Mods aren't sold and they can gain no money through them so the only reason to go after one is to prevent their release in the first place. No if TATW team charged one cent, they would get an injunction and a massive lawsuit shoved in their face. Businesses are all about cost-benefits ratios. Once a mod is already in the hands of hundreds of thousands, it is too late to reap the main benefit of the suit. However, in our case that it is different. We aren't released yet, and therefore the benefit of preventing that is still in play. And we by no means have any way of removing that benefit in any kind of remotely timely manner. And WB won't be made a fool either, so if we somehow did show up with a finished mod tomorrow, they would probably sue us just so that they don't look like an *** in front of everyone. Or at least, that's the short version of why they'd sue :P
Profits have nothing to do with whether you violate copyright. Normally type more after that, but this statement has been countered enough times already.
Well, you do have a couple of hotkeys as far as I know. With Xbox and PS3 controllers it is R1 and L1 (bumpers not triggers). But if you refuse to use a keypad, complaining about a lack of hotkeys is...paradoxical.
you refer to the imagined lack of hotkeys? Just add an item to your favorites, open your favorites, go to an item in the list a click the desired number (1-9). Voila, item hotkeyed.
Until Tolkien Estates win their case, they can't help us. And if they do win they may sink us faster than WB. We aren't going to expose ourselves to another over protective rights holder unless it is the only option.
While I...sympathize, I don't completely agree. There have been lots of great games that have come out and done well largely thanks to consoles. Chrono Trigger is one I can name off the top of my head. Consoles are most definitely not the problem. Flashy tech doesn't make games great. Doesn't even make games better necessarily. Game design makes great games. And the thing causing problems in game design is over cautions publishers and investors. Investors need to trust their game designers to know what gamers want rather than sticking their nose outside their area of expertise.
Dang it Moddb! The bellow comment was directed at Ricewind concerning TATW
You can't unring the bell. The mod has been released and downloadable for a long time. A C&D is useless in that case, though they could take serious legal action. However, that would be costly, time consuming, etc. We are an easier target. Of course, that's just one reason, there are others.
Patience grasshopper. Tis' still an early release. ;)
Yeah, don't you love how when indie dev's say "we don't give a s*** about combat, we are focusing on exploration!" they get a round of applause, but when Bethesda or any other game company says that they get 39 lashes from the same 'fans'
I think the part where it tailors the loot to your play style is a bit...too much? I would suggest simply making hard to find chests have nice stuff worth a good amount of money. And have a legitimate use for money of course.
Congrats on making it to the top 5! Wow, first year out of the gate and already getting that far is awesome. I bet this isn't the last we've seen of Enderal in MOTY competitions ;) .
Are you seriously that oblivious to what is going on? It's the front page of the mod!
Nice to see Enderal in the top 5 so early in development. And congrats to the winner and other top mods.
If I see one more update for this without a screen or any in game stuff, I'm gonna punch through a wall.
As far as I can find, they are still an independent development company. That has nothing to do with whether or not they work out a publication deal with a publisher like Sony. They are Indie, regardless of who they go to for publication after the fact.
Indie refers to development, NOT publication.
It has been 24 hours since the countdown ended. We demand our results! :P
THis game has a lot of potential. Hopefully, with some increased funding they can start to realize it more fully.
Actually, it isn't impossible. You simply need the right skill sets and patience. Working with the anim files is tedious, but everything he said is 100% possible.
Oh yeah, top 100! Everyone be sure and vote to try and at least get this to the top 10 (I think those are the ones that get listed?)
2010. Nehrim and Third Age Total War. I rest my case. Other mods get recognised and get awards. Heck Dear Esther won an award and that mod was WAY out in left field (not really in a bad way; I liked the game. But it was definitely odd).
Nominations. The top 100 will be...the top 100. Phase 2 is a competition between the top 100 for the various awards.
Tell me about it; sometimes I fear we are going to have a problem like the psychos blowing up abortion clinics (only it would be psychos blowing up WB offices)...
Seriously, let's show some decency on some level.
And Moddb sticks this post on the wrong page of course!
They didn't send the Morrowind mod a C&D! The Morrowind mod leader believed he had permissions from TE and when he realized he didn't he discontinued it on his own (they basically said they may or may not sue him in the future; typical ambiguity). People always get that story wrong.
As for a different name, I doubt that ruse would last too terribly long :P , especially if we wanted to carry our fanbase from MERP over. Besides, our work is pretty recognizable now (mostly thanks to our views boost caused by WB's nonsense *rolls eyes*)
Always loved Nehrim's dense forests.
Just so you know, the number of trees per quad of the region seen here is now n+1, with n being a ridiculously large number.
