Hello, guyzz.

As I told, I'm no modder. And I need you to participate in this project - by sending your models, texture work, quality control group...

Ok, by order.
1) I need the men who would continue to the propaganda here:
Forums.relicnews.com
The work has stopped, as no one knew what to do next.
Now you know what to do: join development club:
Moddb.com
and continue the work.
So there's need to contact the modellers, who did the stuff there, get this stuff here, and the modellers also. )
Sorry, I cannot do this, as I was banned on relicnews various times, I'm bored playing hide&seek.

2) We need modellers. I guess it's clear )) Also we need good texturers )

3) We need quality control group: active members, who would check the incoming models;

4) Project needs the the technical leader, mb, the person, who would take all the leadership from me ))) I guess, it would be cool that it would be one of the existing and developing mod leader - like Pouk, Mololu, BloodFleet etc.

5) And of course, we need to make the first version of the mod, so the testers can start the testing )
We could you one of the BloodFleet mods:
Moddb.com
He gots a lot of intersting mod, but still generously allows to take the taiidans out of his mods.

So, guyzz, I'm hoping on you. ) 'cos taiidani are needed very much )

P.S.: There is thread called "Classical Taiidani Remodelling 2" opened by KeyBored - if the community wants, you can catch him and to continue in the 2nd thread, as he would be available to redux the thread's first page thus showing the progress.

I would be willing to help out although I don't really know much about modding(although I'm teaching my self). I can test and offer suggestions.

Like it was said: "Noah's Arc was built by a dilettante, Titanic was built by a professional". Sometimes it very healthy to get opinions from a side.

Hi. Hey the project is interesting, but I can't be the technical leader, because my own project takes so much time that I have none left for others.
But still I can help you on the quality control side, open each HOD and give you a looong list of what the ship is missing. But I'm not doing the fix myself and I'm not checking the raw models, only the HODs. I could just report what the lazy modder choosed not to do at all or what he did wrong. (I'm good at that because I see loads of mistakes in every model I get from others).
Also, what bothers me a little is your part of the job. I know you've set things in movement twice, once with the thread and once here, but you should probably be more than just a leader who let others do the work. Will you for example collect the ships and unify the health and damage values, etc.? Will the base of the mod be on your harddrive? I'm guessing that's the duty of the technical leader. It seems to me that your technical leader can build up the whole mod and you'll get the credits for it. I think that if you would learn to mod yourself, at least the values in the .ship file, you would have a better control over it and you wouldn't have to rely on others. And your own involvement would prevent the effort to fade away. And in case you can do at least the basics, then why don't you want to?

Because there will come the hard times, just like in every other mods, the real life issues or simply the fade of interest, and because your technical leader isn't in charge at all, he's not doing the easy work and it's not his pet project, he may easily drop. That's why I thing that you, as the person with by far the highest motivations, should put the mod together yourself.

Well, I do not seek for "credit thing", as all my part here is the idea. I would be glad to give all the stuff away and do other interesting things. But as you saw it yourself first time, despite the great interest from the community, all what was done faded without the "fire keeper". I hope this kind of a person would appear soon for many reasons: I've got no time, no HW2, no need in modding. Actually, I'm doing this as this is an old idea that I wanted to do, like an old debt.

But I really want, despite your jealousy, that you participate and take honorary place in quality control ) Well... Join the HW2TPDT? )

"despite your jealousy" -I'm not jealous, were you even serious when you said that?
My concern is the mod itself. If you want to pass it to someone else and you still want to see it done, the other person should be interested in the project as much as you are. Do you have any idea where you're gonna find that person? Maybe you should start to activelly ask the people you think are fitting -means they are capable enough and you know they have done some work and they don't have their own mod yet.

I'm sorry.
I don't want to argue with you, especially when you are right. But I really don't have capabilities of starting modding seriously. So, the only role that remains to me - is to advice and rely on others )

And my work is so little - if the HW community would be inert and do nothing, then I will fail, and that means that community fails as counting on making HW3 or game alike would be foolish. And if my beginning would approve, it won't be my victory - it would be communities victory. That's why I'm not counting not on any credit line.

And about members... There are few persons who shows the activity. I'll post it in the news about the mod's doings at weekend.
