Luftahraan is a Skyrim City project that will be located west of Solitude. It will feature a compelling main story line, numerous side quests and dungeons, fully voiced NPCs and more.

Post news Report RSS We are Cancelling Luftahraan

The team and I came to the conclusion that this behemoth of a project had become too big and we decided to cut 50% of superfluous content to speed up development, but it wasn't enough and we have decided to cancel development of Luftahraan.

This is a decision I wanted to make before resigning as project lead but I hadn't lost faith in my teammates so instead I just resigned. But the team and I came to the conclusion that this behemoth of a project had become too big and we decided to cut 50% of superfluous content to speed up development, but it wasn't enough and we have decided to cancel development of Luftahraan. The reasons are complicated and I can create a big laundry list of reasons why it didn't work out but in the end I think it ultimately boils down to the fact that the we lost faith in the project's ability to be finished.

We plan to release Luftahraan in its current state as a modder's resource. It's buggy and not an entirely accurate representation of what we had planned but hopefully some of you will be able to use our work in your own projects.

We have plans for the future but we will talk about that at a later date, we apologize to those who cared about the project and supported us through these 4 years.

Sad to see this will be left unfinished, but it's nice of you to release what's done.

Good luck in your future endeavors :)

Thoughts from IATK team. If you don't have a lot of things to do, why not join us in our team around a Skyrim mod? ^^

This is disappointing. I thought mods like this would put skyrim back in the spotlight. Hopefully, your future plans will succeed and no major problems will come your way. Best of luck and wishes - The fans

Well, this is disappointing as I was anxiously waiting for this, but I'm glad you're going to make it available for resource. Can't wait. Good luck with your next projects.

99% of what appear to be high quality mods end this way. Sad.

Indeed, going with to much to do and setting the release / structure as to allow only the content to be released as one piece is the best way to not release anything in the end.

The best way being to go for segment/episode structure, where content can be released depending on what is done (see Tamriel Rebuilt for an example, OpenMW for another).

Sad, as it has been said.<

With hope that what is done can/will be used.
