Well here it is, after the long wait (Which wasn't worth it), it's released, i'm happy to finally release this, i'm less happy with how it looks, because...
You love guns?? Then this is the mod for you! Grab some of the finest boomsticks and blow your way through different warzones to ensure victory!
LeMis here, it's been a while and things have been pretty busy and whatnot, now I finally remembered I had to inform you guys what SoF's future is gonna be.
Well, I'll put it like this: It's not gonna be postive:
SoF is dead.
It took me a while to come to this conclusion, but it really can't be anything else. I haven't even touched Battlefield 2 itself in months, let alone modding it. I honestly can't remember most of it. Maybe I could regain most of my former skills by trying to freshen up, but I feel it's pointless to do so for something you're not actively interested in anymore.
My life has changed heavily over the course of the last 8-10 months. Let's put it like this, when I started SoF I was still pretty much a teenager, I was just beginning to find out hair doesn't grow exclusively on top of your head and I didn't really have much social experience whatsoever. I didn't really have any friends and couldn't be arsed to do homework as well so basically everything I did was play games and mod BF2. It wasn't until September 2013 where I first had some real friends. That's when my focus shifted to friends, social life and just having fun. SoF kinda ended up on the background and I really couldn't be bothered anymore to do anything for it.
I am now 18 years old, and my former fiery passion for modding and gaming in general has certainly doused quite a bit. I'm not even a gamer anymore. Rather, I have graduated from continuation school and I'm now an IT mechanic. I am also a metalhead now, music is basically 50% of my daily routine and I absolutely can't go without anymore. I just do much more things than simply gaming now, and have been doing so for quite a few months now, which basically caused my interesting for gaming/modding to drop to a historical low.
Coming to think of it, nah, I really can't be bothered to even try and mod anymore. It's just completely over in my brain, I guess I just don't live for the shit any more. I don't even play much video games apart from FIFA, GTA and Pokèmon (Yeah, say whatever you want) nowadays. Battlefield hasn't been of interest for me for a looong time.
I've had fun working on SoF, you guys have always been great and really helpful and even if I didn't really tell you guys I really appreciated it from you. Sure, SoF has had some accusations of copycat-ting and looking back at it now -as hard as I tried to defend it- this was all completely justified. I did have a serious lack of inspiration, and mainly Combat had to suffer from my gigantic lack of said inspiration. Combat is looking pretty swell nowadays and I think SoF could have never even equalled it at all, 7GamePL is still going strong and I like what he's doing, I hope he keeps up what he's doing and that he can make something truly special from his mod.
As for me? Well, SoF is really dead, I feel sad of it, I really do. But I just don't feel it anymore. I also don't think I'll ever mod again, because I just don't think it's worth the time at all. With the departure of RhysMCG from the modding scene at large (Is he even around these days?) SoF just took a major blow I couldn't compensate for myself. I've never really considered myself to be a good modder and thus I really wasn't/am not looking forward to try and keep it running all by my lonesome.
I just wanna say thanks again to all you guys, the support has been great and it has made this decision pretty damn hard. But in the end I think it just isn't worth it anymore. I'll probably check in on Moddb now and then when I come to think of it, but apart from that you guys won't be seeing me around a lot.
With that said, I depart...
