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.

Posted by on

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.

It's not taking my spot at all, I have NO bad things to say about Homefront, even in leaving, and I only want to see the mod continue, so if you you have experience in coding in Lua, and want to, present yourself. Worst-case scenario? I can try teaching in my spare time and Zero knows a fair bit as well, so he can provide direction, perhaps.

I never got the impression of that it was Aliah's fault nor do I think it is, there are always drawbacks in life, big or small and some caused from misunderstanding and misinterpretation.

Something I still don't understand is why Aliah is leaving, I thought this whole mess was sorted out and we're all humans.
Everyone makes errors everyone could be interpreting things wrong.

Aliah has more pressing personal matters she needs to address, and those are more important than the mod. After all, modding is a hobby and real life is always first.

So true, and real life should always come before anything else.

I will probably make a formal leaving announcement later, if the boys agree to it, suffice to say, it's personal reasons I've been dealing with for months, the kind you don't get over.

I agree with everyone that has already posted I don't think it was your fault just a massive amount of misunderstanding.

I imagine that if you ever want to go back they would let you in as their coder.

I hope everything will get back to some semblance to what it was before and I hope you come it of it okay

Yeah I don't follow that comment. The mod has already hit a release, anything the boys put together afterwards is just a bonus to the fans. The last build I had a hold of wasn't much further along than this and it was already eons more fun to play.
