Well, I think this may be yet another DEAD MOD! Yay! Oh so many of them! We had a really nice website, and some people interested in joining, but then I had to leave for basic training. Now I’m back, and the website is gone, and so is everyone involved in the project other than myself. Now I have to go back for AIT (infantry training) and Airborne school (jumping out of plane training) so I don't have time to try to bring everyone back together again. I really am sick of that. That’s the most annoying thing about leading a mod. You’d think everyone involved wants to be there, but you have to hunt them down every time you need something done. I think at this point I’m going to give up on starting new mods unless I have a REALY good idea. I mean something so mind-blowing that I'll probably sell it as a screenplay or book long before I wasn’t it on a mod that stands a 0.00001% chance of actually going somewhere.

You know, mods are allot like TV shows. People don’t want something new and fresh, creative and interesting. They want the same crap over and over again, changed just enough that they don’t recognize it. The problem with mod players (that’s you) today is they (even me some times) just look at how nice the model renders are, and how cool the flash intro on the site is to decide what looks like a cool mod, and what doesn’t. No one ever goes to that all mysterious ABOUT page that every good mod has, and reads the story. That’s what its all about folks! That’s why half-life 1 was so good! It had a story! Even in multiplayer, normally a good story is key to making it good, CS being an acceptation. But hay, what do I know? I’m just some guy trying to make something that other people might enjoy.
