Do not fear followers! The mod is not dead! Unfortunately, a combination of time and burnout has been the cause of the silence for 5 months. The mod sits almost complete, quite a few ideas I would of liked to include I have had to scrap just because it could quite possibly take me by myself another 3 years to do and I doubt anybody would be playing SoC by that point. Instead I will finish the all.spawn when I next get a chance, playtest the mod for stability, and come up with a special user.ltx file for people with powerful systems which will greatly enhance Global Illumination then release the mod. Don't worry if you have a less powerful system, I will still include the older user.ltx file for most of the graphical enhancements.
If anybody has experience with all.spawn editing let me know as it will certainly help significantly speed up the completion of the mod!
