Thread: Is this mod still alive?

  1. #1

    Default Is this mod still alive?

    I hope yes i haven't seen any update form a long time....

    Not really... from what I know the mod has merged with another mod that is in development, taking a ton of the scripts and such to there. Cannot remember its name though....

    Italia Invicta. Though it's now almost entirely the other mod. The ones here seem to have dropped off the map.

    Re Berengario stopped modding M2TW, so it's more or less officially a zombie mod

    Some of his ideas will be used in II but since he's not actively participating in the development process they will be "watered down" by me.

    Well I guess there are no more updates that need to be made for this. Every mod reaches a point at some stage when there is nothink more you can do to it. And we all need new challenges in life.

    I got my first beta testing experience with AD, around 3,050 posts ago, and the mod was brilliant. Wish Re Berengario I the best of luck with whatever he does.

    Indeed, I have to agree, AD was the first mod I have played and it was brilliant to say at least. Best of luck to Re Berengarion I!

    AD was the first mod I really got into, too. it must have been over a year ago when I downloaded the first public beta version that made you butcher your M2TW directory just to install it...the good old days...

    Re Berengario has some terrific ideas for M2TW but I don't think he really had the right tools to really make them work. I can hope someday he'll return to modding (Empire TW, maybe?).

    Oh, he's still dabbling in modding from time to time, but Crusader Kings not M2TW. He told me that CK is much more friendly to us modders anyways :hmmm:

    As for Empires: I highly doubt that, unless CA's company policy changes a lot, he might not even buy it. The same goes for me by the way (especially concerning mod support).

    I would agree with you, I've only recently registered on the forums, but I've read them for a long time...and it's always surprised me how often people go out of their way to play mods and then only complain about them... Oh, well.

    But I think the forums are a little hard on CA, too. People complain about modding being cumbersome (and it is).But they made a great game, and just looking at files like the battle_models.modelsdb or map_heights (I've modded a bit on my own) you can tell that a lot of the game was never meant to be altered by hand, but they went out of their way to make a surprising amount of the game mod-able.

    Just out of curiosity, how would you like to see their policy change?

    First of all I'd like to see a game that isn't 90% about graphics and 10% about gameplay. Then I'd like to be able to actually mod most of the integral game parts, not just scratch the surface.
    Oh and of course not sprouting bugs at every opportunity is also on the wishlist.

    The main point for me is the graphics vs gameplay thing though. M2TW is so simple and easy that it almost physically hurts to play the strategy part. And the battle part is not a huge lot better.

    I have to second that opinion. Graphics are the first thing people look for, but once you get over the oohs and aahs of new graphics, there is a LOT of stuff that is sadly lacking.

    CA has made quite a bit of the game more mod friendly, but they have a long ways to go, and the limits you run into are the most maddening part. A very simple example is trying to mod resources, that entire system blows, as does the rest of the economy. The scripting limits are really frustrating too, and as alpaca said very bug prone.

    And how many mods have gotten to that stage?

    I third that opinion.

    AD still brings a nostalgic tear to my eyes. It was the first M2TW mod I played & my first posts were here too.

    This mod is still, even with bugs one of the best on TWC.
    Why we dig up the past? To understand it.

    Since this mod has essentially passed it's sell by date, so to speak, can someone tell me is it worth keeping this forum here?..

    Please no emotional pleas, if it's been surpassed by other mods and not being updated it has to go..

    Thank you..
