Old Republic mod for Forces of Corruption. Exactly as it says on the tin.

Too long have I waited for a surge of motivation to resume work on this project...

Posted by on

Alright I've been putting off this Moddification for so long that at this point I'm not even sure if I'll ever finish it in a state that I'd be comfortable in releasing it. Moddification with a capital "M" since I have worked on it for so inmensely long, not just what you get to play, but especially what you will not get to play, all the cut content, constantly updated graphics and fully replaced or removed units, heroes and other content. Which makes we wonder why I still keep it on my harddrive instead of just releasing it, since it is mostly play ready. I'd say I'm sorry for focussing on my Re mod, which I honestly believe to be the more finished, higher quality and play-ready mod at this very moment, instead of finishing this, but I work on what I enjoy, and I don't think that that warrants an apology.

As of this moment, I am rewriting the (space) unit descriptions to match their updated stats (shield points, weapons, ect.). After this, I will try to fix some minor problems like a ships weapons not firing, sound files that are mixed, or perhaps that I have wanted to replace for a while but haven't done it yet.

I simpely do not know if I will ever find the motivation to finish this project. I have had a lot of fun working on it over the years. There's bad things and there's good things, the creative side of modelling paired with the pain of then having to UV your creation and making a texture for it. Writing code for a your new ship, and then see it not spawn any of its fighters ingame. And then finally seeing it work after a long evening of trying to find that one bug that was one missing line of code, that satisfaction is a great feeling.

So with that out of the way, this mod releases tomorrow.

Do not expect fully functional ground combat. Do not expect fully completed galactic conquest. Do not ask or complain or knock or my door for technical support. Those of you who've been following this for a while know what is and isn't done since I'm very transparent at what is or isn't in the media (both pictures and video).

I will most likely provide atleast 1 patch to the most blatant errors you can find, which I'd like you all to put in the downloads comments, if at all possible, in a constructive manner. Space combat is pretty much entirely finished. Thanks to EmperorNiko, who is sadly unable to mod now, ground combat exists and is mostly *playable*. Thanks to Adamsmith, a few new galactic conquest maps exist including Rakata, which doesn't have a space map yet since I haven't finished the starforge map. What is finished now or in the next day is what you get.

I will see you people tomorrow.

Personally I've found your Re mod much more enjoyable and I'm more than happy you've focused on Re. It's my favorite period and has my favorite units (not sayin this mod is bad, just that I'm selfishly happy with your choice)

Jeroenimo, you have done a good job with this mod, and it is a lot more "finished" than many of the others which have gone dark in the past. One day, you will find the motivation you seek, or someone will come along with vigor who will want to work on it with you or for you.

What is important is that you are doing what you feel is right for this moment in time, and I wish you all the best in your work with the RE mod.

The thing that's killing you is that you are a perfectionist, i know when i see one, i'm one myself after all. You won't release anything until it's perfect. You have redone so many things so many times, it's just silly. So no wonder in the end you completely lost interest.

In the future, do the things once, release the mod and then if you really really have to redo the ship or textures or whatever, only then do it.

I'm mildly agreeing with Sanguinius.

You could've sorted your priority list differently and first had everything finished, and then started to upgrade over time. It would kinda be a smart thing to do.
But that would probably kill the passion for particular stuff you like. Like doing models of spaceships.

I love that you are a perfectionist. The stuff you make is among the greatest on moddb because of that.

All in all, this is an awesome project, and Re is even more awesome, and good thing you chose to focus on it.

Safe to say that when I started this 6 years ago I didn't really have a plan for how to proceed from start to finish :)

I can't say that I'm not a little disappointed, but it's your mod and if you feel the need to focus more effort on Re then that's entirely up to you.
You're one of the best modders in the EaW community and I can't wait to see what you'll make next.

Dont worry man, We as a MODDB Community are all counting on you. Sure some of us are asking eachother if the mod is dead, but some other people like myself dont believe so, we beleive that you're occupied by other things, however most of us are waiting patiently, and so am I. Keep up the good work. I am a mandalorian, I dont believe in the force, but I will say this for you. May the foce be with you.

Have you thought about posting your files somewhere, so that if anyone wanted to continue your job can download them and develop it further? (I would, but my 3D modeling skills are laughable, same for image editing, I'm studying programming, but I believe I'm still a novice and also I never modded anything, so I will not be the one to continue your mod anytime soon, but maybe there is someone. Still, really awesome mod, I sincerely hope that you, or anyone, will someday continue it.
