Ladies and Gentlemen,
It would be an understatement to say that our activity on this page has been somewhat limited lately. We’re very sorry for that – you’ve been our friends and supporters throughout this project. Without you this project would never have existed. On behalf of Stellar Parallax, I feel it’s past time that we give you an explanation.
I’m going to say first of all that I’m very proud of the Infinities team – we’ve put a lot of time and effort into making what we hoped would be the best possible Star Trek mod for Stellaris. The team has worked hard and long and once again impressed me with their talent and imagination. However, with real life issues creeping in the number of people on the Infinities team has gradually dwindled to the point where we simply don’t have the manpower needed to create a mod of this size. At this moment we only have four people able to commit to Infinities, and considering the workload demanded by a mod of this size even on a large team, as we had for Armada 3, I can’t ask them to make that commitment. Combined with the fact that with each major update to Stellaris Paradox essentially forces us to redo the mod from scratch, our progress on Infinities has slowed to a frustrating crawl. We have explored other options, such as recruiting new members and even negotiating to join with the New Horizons modding team. We felt it would have been a good pairing – they have a larger team and coders experienced with working on Paradox games, while we consider our artists to be some of the best in the business. However, after much discussion a common ground couldn’t be reached, which is a shame - we’ve got a lot of respect for the New Horizons team and we recommend you go and check out their work.
Unfortunately this means that we’ve run out of options and Stellar Parallax, for the last few weeks, has been left considering the future of Infinities. Therefore it is my sad duty to tell you all, on behalf of my team, that Star Trek Infinities has been cancelled.
This has been a very hard and disappointing decision for us to make, and we all feel like shit for letting everyone down like this. We worked really hard and had great plans for Infinities – we were really excited to bring you the best possible mod for Stellaris we could make. Unfortunately in this case things just haven’t worked out. We wish things could be different.
We know that some of you may lose faith in Stellar Parallax after this disappointment. We completely understand that. We promised a lot and haven’t been able to deliver. However, we hope to win back your trust. After all, it’s not all bad news.
Plans are already in motion for our next project, which we will be revealing soon. All I’ll say for now is that we’ll be returning to a more stable and familiar platform, and that a number of the ideas we had for Infinities will not be going to waste. ;)
Beyond that, our Armada 3 team are busily finalizing the last update for The Final Frontier, and a new version, Nemesis, will soon be released, offering a whole new kind of multiplayer experience.
So you see, Stellar Parallax is far from beaten. We’re still working, and we’re still dedicated to bringing you some of the best mods available. We appreciate your support, and hope you’ll stick with us.
The Stellar Parallax team
