    Default (Resources) War of the West Final Act

    Hi everyone,

    It's been a long time, don't remember when it was the last time I've been logged? Months? Years?

    Why I come back today? Honestly, I have no idea.. I guess it's guilt of not worked on or completed this mod.

    It's been years this project has started with a great crew with varied skills as well being great persons.. I considered them friends. One thing that we can be proud of is how TW community is, such a great place, cannot say the same for League of Legends.

    What happened with WotW? Life's priorities and lack of interest for this game or modding. It's understandable, so much things happened during that timeframe. I wouldn't lie, the team is disbanded and nobody works on it anymore. SonofPeverel tried to continue working on it even though I stopped but couldn't finish because I have few files of the folder that he didn't possess to make it work.. And I couldn't find it or because I've become very rusty about modding and recognize what each files do.

    I for myself, lost interest in the game, including modding. Job's taking alot of my time and concentration (I'm a paramedic in Quebec, Canada) so when I come back home, I am not really motivated to mod and prefer to play a game instead. I have my girlfriend of 4 years and possibly we will try to found a family soon, giving less time to perform modding.

    Hamilton moved on with his life and its perfectly understandable.. If he reads this, I wish him good luck in his future, same for Peverel and David.

    Kjertesvein, LolIsuck and others, I believe they are still active around the forums, but I think they also moved on because of the lack of activity.. A normal fatality.

    I remember back in the days, I promised you to finish this mod and you will enjoy it. I have to admit that its now a broken promise.. I'm a rusty coder, not a great scripter and a poor modeler. Also most talented modders are onto their own projects, moved to a more recent TW game or, as me, moved on TW modding. With all that combined, I hardly believe this mod will see the light at the end of the tunnel.. Its a shame really because I know it had alot of potential.

    So now onto the big piece of message here; since this mod, unless someone else decide to take over, won't be completed anytime soon, I allow any modders to use WotW material for their own mod. Just give due credit to WotW team for their hard work on released work. If the download link from the beta isn't working, I will try my best to find files within my computer but the chances are low. If anybody still has the beta in their computer, you could share it as well. I have not certain templates Lord Hamilton used for the models, so you would have to extract the files yourself.

    You don't need to send me a PM or anything, just posting into this thread will be considered as permitted.

    Obviously, what you guys would seek from this mod is the Unit Models. Lord Hamilton had a incredible talent, he was part of the best modders in M2TW I've met. It would have been a shame to let his work rot into a dead project because there are many other potential mods that could make good use of his work.

    I want to thank everybody who support us throughout the whole time, it is still appreciated until this day. Who knows, perhaps one day I may come back onto modding as an humble coder-for-hire. Until then,

    Cheers.

    I would definitely love to incorporate the wonderful work into my mod Albion Total War, so the work of War of the West can live on! Same setting in general, and similar time frame! My mod is based on other similar mods that sadly disappeared over the years, but yours remains an inspiration, for me to learn how to mod in the first place! I wish you well, credits will given for shared assets.

    Hey Polycarpe, I can fully understand how it happened, especially since I have been a member of a more or less abandoned mod before as well. I appreciate your decision to release the material and I am hopeful that Zantorian will use it wisely
    "Pompeius, after having finished the war against Mithridates, when he went to call at the house of Poseidonios, the famous teacher of philosophy, forbade the lictor to knock at the door, as was the usual custom, and he, to whom both the eastern and the western world had yielded submission, ordered the fasces to be lowered before the door of science."

    I'll use your units models in SSHIP as well. Thanks for your generous gift.
    Are we alowed to re-use the textures made by Lord Hamilton for some other units?

    It's such a shame that this mod has died.

    Yet, the work done was superb, no doubt!


    Given the new conditions, I'll happily use part of the available material for Gothic TW: CoM, with a proper retexturing to match the mod lore.


    In any case, thanks a lot to the WOWT Team for their dedication!

    Thanks for sharing and for your great job! I'll probably add some of your models into my Westeros submod.

    My sister, do you still recall
    The blue Hasan and Khalkhin-Gol?

    Your mod looked very promising, unfortunately it never got a campaign. Thanks for your hard work and the teams hard work, and i will have to say i am very thankful for this permission!

    Half a year ago i wanted to use some of the models but read it wasn't permitted. So thanks again for allowing this - Irish factions had no units suitable in WotN style - and i want to replace TLK-models of Munster with WotN grittier models. As Absinthias old models were lost, i saw in your mod that Ireland had exactly what i needed. This is gonna be perfect - i do also believe that Scotland may have a few underdeveloped units suitable for the earlier Viking Age-period.

    England in this mod is too modern, but i think your models are great =): Gonna re-download WotW and implement the new Munster roster asap. Thanks again =).
