Thread: Personal Update & Sub-Mod Guideline

  1. #1

    Icon3 Personal Update & Sub-Mod Guideline

    Hi guys!!!

    first of all, I really want to apologise for my very long absence, for not being able to reply to all the pms or threads and for not answering so many important questions.
    The reasons are, as so often in life, manifold, but I just want to say that many personal and other important things have happened short after the release of TATW 3.1 and in the whole last year, so that I had to completely shift my attention away to be able to manage the new situations.

    However, be assured that I'm fine and, as someone already found out, my latest status update is that I'm working for The Lordz games studios where I have the chance and the luck to work on some very cool projects!

    Of course, I have one sad and streaming eye, because obviously TATW is currently completely on hold while my heart still beats hard for it!
    I can't tell you when, how or what, but I know the last release was not the last thing that I did for TATW, I'm pretty sure the dream of this mod has not completely ended yet.
    I'm actually still browsing the forums very often and I will definately try to post at least from to time on important subjects.

    Finally, I really want to heartily thank the whole community and sub modders for keeping TATW still so alive! Also a big thanks for all moderators who still hold the line and who are keeping the kind order here!!!! Thanks so much everyone!! Was good to post something here again...


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Now to a long overdue general update on some sub-modding rules, where I got remembered by several forum members here. Really thanks for the slight kick in the ass guys!
    Since I probably know only a few parts of the main submodding and permission questions, I'll try to express a:

    General sub-mod guideline

    You are allowed to edit any content of TATW and to release it as a sub-mod, under following conditions:
    - You do not claim edited original content as your own created work
    - You stick to the rules that apply to LL's High Elves
    - You don't release your sub-mod as a stand-alone mod that doesn't require the installation of TATW.

    I hope that this guideline answers the most questions and I think it makes pretty clear what you can and what you cannot do with your sub-mod. If there are still open questions please pm me (with a clear title that it is about permission issues) and I will see to update this guideline then.

    The rules for the Easterlings say you can't use them without permission. You're saying the content can be altered without permission. I don't get it.

    Great to see you back, KK! No need to apologize. You returned when we needed you the most! It reminded me of Gandalf at Helms deep!
    To tell you the truth, I fully believed you would never return again.
    Now we will have our submod community flourishing again based on your great creations.
    Thank you for this great gift to the community!
    And once again congratulations for joining the Lordz. Pls, post info on your games here to keep us updated, man.

    I'm pretty sure he means, for his stuff, his rules and for DG's stuff, DG's rules.
    “The hardest thing in the world is to assume the mood of a warrior. It is of no use to be sad and complain and feel justified in doing so, believing that someone is always doing something to us. Nobody is doing anything to anybody, much less to a warrior.” ― Don Juan
    "It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag." -- Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC

    KingKong's new policy counts for everything made by KingKong. For the Easterlings DG's policy still counts because that is his work.

    Congratulations and good luck in the new position! Thanks for all the hard work here (personally, 90% of all my TW play time is related to either SS or TATW), and kudos to you for inspiring so many talented modders who continue working on TATW and its submods. All the best!
