Lands to Conquer Gold will be the last version of Lands to Conquer, and the last mod I will make for the Total War series. I've been modding for over 3 years now, I think i've done a fair amount in that time, but it's time for me to call it quits.
Modding has for along time taken up far too much of my time, and since starting work at CA, time I really don't have anymore. My time will be better spent elsewhere.
It's definitely been fun, going from my first forays into text editing, to my time on the Fall of Rome, Fourth Age Total War, Imperium Total War and Paeninsula Italica mod teams. Then it was the release of my mod for Rome: Total War, Terrae Expugnandae in early 2006. I was also disappointed when a fatal computer problem wiped out my work for TE Gold, and for my mod i was working on for Rome: Alexander which led to semi-retirement from modding for a while.
But Medieval II bought me back into the mod scene, and led to Lands to Conquer. And it was thanks to that, and my continued involvement in the community, that helped get me my job at CA. Lands to Conquer Gold is as polished as I can get it and I'm proud of it.
I would like to say thanks to the many modders who've helped me throughout my modding career, and those include(though I cannot hope to remember all of them as there are so many of you): Fatsheep, Palantir, Apoc, Balbor, Prof420, Razor, Spirt of Rob, SignifierOne, PROMETHEUS ts, webbird, alpaca, King Kong, Jambo, lawngnome and many others.
I would also like to say a big thank you to the many fans of my mods who with their feedback have ensured that my mods have continually improved.
It's been fun.
