Are you a coder? Are you interested in helping out on the mod?
Yes, I am a Coder, lol, actually I am a professional programmer, running my own little company.
We and I do programming solutions for Soft- and Hardware needs and also developement of it we do by our self.
Also produkt presentations mainly in Digital 3D presentations is part of our buisnes.
For example here is one of our open and non-licensed to use conzept arts for a Streetlamp we once developed and presented.
Also, yes I am interested in helping you out on some parts of the mod. Well it looks like you need everywhere some support according to your last post. There for, for optimicing processing, it would be good to know what is right now urgent or what is still open and I may look on it to do some work for ya.
And yes, we use GitHub for hosting our code for internal development, that isn't publically accessible
To that I in my opinion I would make it puplic, so people can fork it and do work on it and when they have done some work they can give back a "Pull request" and if it´s ok you can insert it or not, your decision. I know there is the danger of someone is copying your work and so on, but actually you would open your mod up for some random people who just wanted to give a helping hand and weren´t able to do bcause all is somewaht "Closed".
Yes, that's the goal. Once BG 3.0 is in a fully, or nearly completed state we will pay the $100 submission fee and try to get it added as a free mod on steam, [...] Everytime we release an update we are always in the top ten or top five games on MODDB, so I don't think we'll have an issue getting the votes from old players.
Hm, you thing that might get the game back? Even when you are getting positive Votes the situation of that game isn´t realy changeing. I mean, empty or nearly empty servers, dead Clans, Less interests...
I often heard from people that they wish that BG would have some extra gamemods for example some sort of King of the Hill... (That is actually in my opinion already possible to do without any extra codeing and such stuff, simply add one flag in the middle of a map and let the tickets drain of the other team.),
also some arguing about the fakt that the map pool is quite small and most times for the actual situation made for a more huge amount of players what BG doesn´t have I think right now.
The other thing what is also confusing for some is in fakt some anouncements on this page.
or another example
- http://www.bg2mod.com/2015/01/25/2015-m ... p-updates/
where you said that there will be some grafikal updates in 2.3
Well I don´t see any refelktions in bg_snowlake...
some where thinking than there would be soon a hughe update to BG3.0 and where exited to see it, just to realise that thair toughs aren´t been going to be real soon. So they left, asumeing that the BG dev-team just done some sort of a HOAX. Please, don´t be mad at me! I know what it means to do free work in spare times. And I wasn´t mind to get offending some one. But it´s realy that what some where saying.
So I would asume to be a bit carful when anouncing stuff that isn´t quite done yet in the near future. In my point, you have done a great work and also it is great to see that there is still work going on in the background.
So in short now. Just say clearly what you actually need and I´ll look for it, if possible to manage it, to do it.
and again, thank you all for your response.
