The future of this particular mod... And its final demise.

Posted by TheTriangulum on May 31st, 2013

I have scaled down Battlefronts Of War: Dark Forces to a minimod that will enhance the gaming experience of vanilla FoC with new skirmish maps and land combat. This mod will be land skirmish only.
This mod was in essence a learning curve for me. A way for me to become acquainted with the modding world. It is too ambitious to carry this forward into a total conversion. I have expressed that I cannot do this alone and it is too far-fetched to complete this without help.
Expect a release of the final and prototypical version of the mod late August as mod files will be cleaned up and minimod is finalized.
I have a small mod team ready for a following project that is within concept and planning stages. Unlike BFOW, this mod will be the main project with a real plan and scope.
Thank you for following Battlefronts of War.

Battlefronts Of War: Dark Forces: The full total conversion mod plan for this concept is DEAD.

I know this mod had plenty of potential to be a full conversion, but I do not have a dedicated team behind me. From your experience, it has been put on hold numerous times and now it is time to draw it to a close and put it behind. I need to start a fresh with a fully mapped concept and plan, with a strong and dedicated team picked from the beginning.

It is hard to for me to type this and shut the door on a mod like this. But I must be realistic. There is no way this mod will be finished. It would be better to release a cleaned up mini version than nothing at all. (or a buggy messed up version)

This may be the end of the first era of Sigma Game Studios, but the beginning of a culmination...
Stay tuned for updates.

Cognosco.

A very sad but understandable way to end the mod, I was greatly looking forward to it so I can play EAWFOC again. Unfortunately I cannot offer help, but I wish you a strong future where you can achieve your true dream and not be hindered by such things again. Farewell Battlefronts of War: Dark Forces, you will be missed :(

I have been trying to find modders for the past 4-5 months (even while I was away doing exams).
In fact, probably for a whole year I have been trying to stabilize a mod team for this stubborn project.
I guess it was not meant to be. :,(

please remember that all the content you are currently seeing on the mod page will be available to you to play when the minimod is released! Nothing is being removed!

Does this mean you will be dedicate all your modding time to YVAW? If so that's actually pretty good news. Are you still apart of their team?
