The only thing you have to do if you want to use anything from my mods is that you ask me for permission and tell me what your working on and also credit me, I'll probably let you but I just want to see where my work goes. Except the things that are in the third party folder, they are not mine and I cannot give them away.

I recently burnt out while modding video games and am just tired of doing it, it became boring and very taxing on myself after years. I always came to walls most of the time I tried to do anything and I just gave up after trying to get the music working for HOTD warband, I did everything right and still it didn't work so I didn't even bother releasing it. I did though for the M&B version but not for warband because I didn't even have the game installed and sorry to say but at that stage I didn't give two shits.

I don't think I will ever mod again and I don't plan to, I just wanted to make this clear but for those interested I have moved onto something more constructive. I needed to occupy my time with something so I started researching how to translate Japanese video games into English. After getting help for more than I week I started to make progress and fully understand the process of the trade, I am a fan of Magic Knight Rayearth and want to play the games but sadly most of them weren't released outside of Japan so I am taking it upon myself to translate every single one of them. It is myself and Niiri on moddb who is translating the game, I asked him for help since I can't read Japanese, he does a rough translation into English which I 100% of the time rewrite but he is still crucial in the process.

I haven't gotten the response I wanted to on Romhacking but in due time I hope more people take notice and get interested. This is what I am moving onto from modding and I actually enjoy translating this game unlike what happened to myself at modding. I first wanted to translate Magic Knight Rayearth 2nd: The Missing Colors as I thought it was a game based on the second season of the anime but sadly it has it's own story separate from anything else so no Nova...... grrr. Anyhow so far I have roughly translated around 50-60% of the game so progress is going really well, I made a release of the first third of the game nearly a week ago so if your interested please check it out on my blog. I am also interested in what you guys think as just because I won't be modding doesn't mean I won't be hanging around Moddb so what do you think.
Here is also a video that I recorded not long ago showing off the English translation, all the mistakes in it have already been corrected so all is good.

You mean people can't use the warband animation in V1.011?
I know make the scenes is very hard,because I did a lot of scene in our mods(16th century mod and Life50 mod) as you are(more than 100 scenes one year)
anyway ,thanks for your interesting mod~

Well take a look at some of my scenes and then compare, modern scenes look much harder to do than medieval type ones.

It's looks like a very wonderful mod.
with so many beautiful scenes.
I saw all the pictures,
and I have some suggests.
use the animation of warband(or new animation,I don't if we can use the warband animation in V1.011 )
make the main map suggestion is using a huge city modle as a map icon.and change the dds file of ground textures.(for example,I used a farmland picture as,so I can show the farmland in the main map)

my english is poor,but I really think this is a great mod~
keep up your great work~

Well I have kinda washed my hands with HOTD as I have done everything that I wanted to do, hell I even ported it to warband after deciding not to. Your not allowed to port stuff into previous games as that's kinda illegal and wrong. Glad that you like the scenes though as I put tons of hours and work into the mod by myself.

I think you should try to make the character models more anime-like and add cell-shading.

I think not, every gender runs off the same head model and creating new anime style head models would just be a waste of time and add in the fact that I can't model heads or clothing. Im best with buildings, just because it's based on an anime doesn't mean you have to add cel shading. It's just a cheap gimmick anyway, Dynasty warriors Gundam 1&2 don't have cel shading but when they added it for the 3'rd game the graphics were ugly and horrible.

Cel shading isn't just something you can toggle on and off as the engine has to be built for it or if you have the shaders and M&B doesn't. What you just asked would take too long and seeing how it's been 2 years since I started the mod it would be a waste of my time.
