I figured I´d throw a quick update on how this is rolling at the moment
For the last few months I´ve spend more hours trying to get SourceSDK tools running than actually working on the mod, so there hasnt been much of "physical" content. And this morning my SourceSDK computer decided to kill itself (I understand how it feels, poor bastard), and even my SVN account seems to be down. I HAVE all the files backed up, and safe, so nothing is lost, its just all my tools are rebelling. There´s crazy much of work already done on Scintilla, but...
..its the constant hickups with the tools, that really really REALLY suck all creative juice out of me. So, to do something drastic, I´ve started playing around with the free version of Unity, and if I can get that functional enough (Im not that good with scripting or such), I´ll port our work there, and publish it on Unity. And I dont mean a commercial product. From what I´ve played around with the tools so far, its ridicilously fast to work with, and I can do a bunch of stuff in minutes that would take days with SourceSDK.
1. All the work we have, IS safe, and backed up.
2. Im going to experiment with Unity for a while and evaluate how much faster (very very much) it is to do actual creative work.
3. Uh, I´ll update this space when there´s something to show, again.
4. Im very sorry about the constant delays, this goes to my development team as well.
But we´re getting there.
I guess I could throw something positive here.. lets see.. I havent taken that many good screenshots, but I was just browsing thru the old pictures, and this one was pretty cool--
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Scintilla. We love games like Half-Life 2: Episode Two that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Bigger and better
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
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.
Introducing Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. 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 #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
