Hello Victoria: TW fans,
As most of you may know I'm Fortes, the mod leader or at least I'm the guy who come up with the idea, now as much of you may have already noticed the mod is still unreleased after about one year, my most sincere apologies for that, the reason why I'm writing this is that I want to explain why that happened.
As most of you may have noticed since Easter that the team has been becoming inactive, me as the first name. This is due to RL issues, The Lizard King that was a motivation for the team had become inactive due to RL issues as did our great unit creator Xwhyzed, other followed. As mod leader it was my duty to make the mod prosper, however instead of that I too became inactive around here, the reasons for that are alongside with RL that modding became boring to me and I can say this mod is in it origin, before this big project I only did small sub mods for DarthMod than the idea for this mod that was initially much more small came and with it a lot of work, I made a new campaign from the ground that wasn't something easy, the campaign was done but in the end I was bored as hell, then I moved to UI works, starting to work on the portraits that are posted in the previews, that was a lot of fun but I'm the kind of guy that can't hold much time doing the same so I moved to other modding projects waiting that more was done in this mod that so when I was needed I was fresh to come, however with the time the team became inactive and my efforts to bring it up were useless, some left, other became busy with other projects as it was my case, other retired as it's MatrixStorm and Okmin case and then there is Tango, a great guy for who I only wish the best, he has no modding skills but it is him how is maintaining this breading, he never left, he kept working on it, he is still doing!
Around one month ago I've came to our dev. forum and discussed the situation with Tango and Okmin, we agreed in keep this going but unfortunately and again for my fault it stayed the same.
The status of the mod,
The mod has a campaign around 80% done, only smallest tweaks left
The UI too is at a good status, most portraits done.
Tango as been working on the factions descriptions and they too are at a good status.
The flags are fully done, Okmin and MatrixStorm did a great job with them.
The tech tree has never come to light, Tango and Okmin were thinking on it but nothing was ever presented apart to the fact the each faction would have it's unique tech tree.
The units, the units were and are what is stooping us from releasing this. What did our unit makers did and what are their status:
- Xwhyzed: He did the Ottoman units but unfortunately did not update them all, I know nothing of him since the begin of the summer
- Geronimo: His progress was always slow but he mantained something that can be considered regular, showing up with a new units from weeks to weeks, however according to him a few of the units he did are gone.
- Solo: Joined us latter but did a great work, he was working on the the British and French units, sadly he too didn't upload the units before he get busy with RL, last contact I've with him was a message telling that he was still on this but that was a few months ago.
- mattmario89: This is a guy that must of you must never heard of, in his RL he does a lot of models and was a guy that I could see doing much for the team however he has no modding experience and as our experienced unit makers were gone there was nobody to explain him how things work.
This is what I felt the need to say and I did it without contact Tango, Okmin or other member that is still active, I'm sorry guys I really had to
Please feel free to ask what you want and I'll try to answer them, I wrote this as to be honest as possible with you.
Let's not let his die guys, all help is welcome, if you want to help with return the life to the mod just say so, it doesn't matter if you have mod experience or not I'm sure we will find something useful for you to do.
