Firstly, we're good. The biggest challenge to making a quality mod is the absence of money. Rent, food and student loan payments have to come before a penniless passion project. That in mind, a few months ago the team experienced a loss of leadership. Andrew and I both had to dip out for a while for completely unrelated personal reasons. I spent a good poriton of my time pursuing a seat at Army OCS. I won't leave until March. Now that my life has settled a bit, I'm able to plug back into Deadlock.
One of my favorite things about working on Deadlock is that I get to share some awesome work with you all. Here's more eye candy from Stefan!
More than anything, what we need now is an animator/rigger to produce the skeletons for our characters. Several guys have joined to tackle the project. Either they've got the experience but no time to do the work, or don't have enough experience to feel comfortable with the responsibility. We've come to a bit of an impasse because of this, but it's nothing the right person can't suss out. If you're interested, or know someone who is, hit us up!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like DEADLOCK. We love games like Half-Life 2 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
