Our representation of Halo's iconic space combat in the Homeworld 2 engine, which puts the player in command of some of the most powerful weapons fielded by the UNSC and Covenant and to provide a balanced and competitive experience.
Though she is no longer part of the team, Aliah was a great coder and a great friend while working on HHF. I am saddened everything has turned out the way it has and it has ultimately soured our friendship.
First let it be clear that the news post I recently posted about the background debate was not meant to sound like a witch hunt. Nor was it my intention to smear Aliah or anyone else. Though she is no longer part of the team, Aliah was a great coder and a great friend while working on HHF. I am saddened everything has turned out the way it has and it has ultimately soured our friendship.
Aliah was working on the pretense that she had necessary permissions to use everything we have in our mod. She has PMs dating back to when she first started saying we have the go ahead from B5, BSG, and had a PM from eviljedi giving her permission to use his fx. This was misconstrued as permission to use any of evil's assets, and Aliah mistook a map background for SSC as one of evil's creations (In reality, he made the map, but not the background)
It was not a matter of stealing or thieving, but misinterpretation and misunderstanding. Aliah is no more at fault than Velo or I in this matter, and this deserves to be known. The last couple of weeks have been rough on all of us and the French-English barrier has been a problem throughout.
I hope Aliah can forgive me for condemning her on the mod scene, as it was not my intention at all, and I sincerely hope our fans and followers can forgive her and myself for painting the wrong picture in this mess.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Homefront. We love games like Homeworld 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).
