Post news RSS Status Update: Roadblock

A simple status update on the mod. Basically me declaring the mod's failure.

Posted by on

Hello everyone, i've got some unfortunate news. Work on the mod has basically slowed to a hault, for several reasons.

This is my first serious c++ programming project/real game, and as a result I failed to properly layout the game the way I should have, before I started. Well, i've done that now and it helped me to figure out where I want to go with the mod.

Basically I'm at a crossroads. I can continue work on the game and use original models from the source engine and make it a source themed mod, or, I can create all my own models and make it a fantasy based game (like Warcraft).

I don't really want to make it a source-themed game, and I don't really have the man-power (or know how) to create all the models i'm going to need, especially since college just started.

I also contacted valve about releasing this as a full-scale purchaseable game and they basically shut me down, lol. (it's probably for the best)

If you're interested in downloading the design document I created, heres a link.

Edit:

Stay tuned people, I will alert you all as to the new developments as soon as I can.
