The purpose of this project was to create a trailer with near triple-A quality, that goal was achieved on Feb 2009, and thus this project has concluded.

The studio has since turned pro and continues to produce commercial games.

This mod is the one mod that I'm looking forward to for ANY game. I'm waiting for it more than I'm waiting for any retail games, save maybe Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising.
