There's life in the old dog yet. The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

There's life in the old dog yet. The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.
What is true is that my old PC died and due to personal circumstances and career changes I simply couldn't afford a new one. Until now.
All mod files are safe and I'll get back to work shortly. Since it's been quite a while since I last touched the mod it will take some time to get back on track, but it also provides me with a fresh look on things and a new perspective.
It's sad to see that the German community almost completely vanished with planet-stalker shutting down (where you guys at these days?) but it is also nice to see some big mods emerging and things getting done that most never deemed possible. Looking forward to checking out Lost Alpha and Misery and then get back into modding.
Extra special thanks for the warm welcome back I received so far and your continued support for a mod many deemed dead and gone.

It's good to be back!

Will update this page soon, so stay tuned. ;)

Es ist schade, dass planet-stalker geschlossen worden ist mit all seinen coolen Mods (INVASION mod D: )

Man, I feel with you.. you must have serious money trouble if you cannot afford a decent desktop computer this day and age... I remember the videos you uploaded from the mods, most of them were like 10 FPS, lol..

Regardless, welcome back.
