...and so after a couple days of actually reading every single post on every single page in this thread I have finally reached the end. hurrah! yes, apparently I am into pain, especially given the redundancy in the requests and statements....you all need to set up a nice lil copy paste with stock answer for some things, save yourselves some time and heartburn from actually typing out responces...heh
I am new SoSE, having just picked it up this past weekend (I have the trinity version). I wanted something a lil different from my usual 4x fix which I typically satisfy with Civilization and Space Empires. As such, I wandered through the various games available in the store and happened upon our lil friend here. given there are only 3 races...I immediately jumped out looking for options (aka:mods) to "increase" the variety available when I stumbled across your lil project in progress here (or rather I should say HUGE project given you seem to be effectively making your own game for all intents and purposes).
I have to say, from the lil bit I have seen and from what I have read here I am very much impressed and the entire team deserves a very large pat on the back for the work they have completed thus far. this is especially true given the over all time frame that this project has been worked on for and with the limitations that are inherent to the game itself. WELL DONE!
I just thought I would chime in and let you all know, as has been mentioned throughout the thread by others, your work and efforts have not gone un-noticed and I for one greatly appreciate all the work and effort each of you has put in to making this best Mod that it can be given the goals you all have established.
I do have a question though and really more of a general one than anything. given I am pretty much a "noob" to the modding scene and programming in general...one of the masses doing the pug-n-play mod and freaking when doesnt work is it "possible" to put the original Sins back into the mod after it has been loaded up, in effect having a grand total of 8 races running around even if only 5 are actually playable? I am not really clear if you all did, or did not, change the whole classification of ships so obviously if you did change that aspect the answer is a resounding no....
anyways...suppose I should go pretend to do a lil more work. thank you again for the hard work and I am looking forward to seeing the end product once you get there...till then I shall sit back, relax and enjoy the work you all share in the mean time. ~
