I figure i've got one more shot left in me.. lol.. the crazy often do :-p true though about getting sidetracked but im fairly certain (apart from one thing..) there will be minimal "new stuff" to get distracted by in the Freelancer world.. so it's a safe bet i won't find myself swimming in .cmp's and shifting lore & code around so everything makes sense again.

I don't have a *massive* vision.. just a rather big one (lol) I'd probably be done if not for the evil working's of Glock.. I had all my #$%% sorted.. then he goes and hands over the one shipset i cannot say no to, coveted almost.. a Mountain of Sol's meshes still lays unattended.. and i keep looking at the DS1 pack too with evil intent, Mixed with some Kuze for good measure.. and those Bane ships i swore i'd update.. yeah.. somewhere in all that im making a mod with actual lore too.. lol.. i'll be at it for a time yet hehe.

My PS3 is a good distraction, been hitting Amalur a fair bit, some NFSHP and Little big planet for the quiet times.. lol, can't seem to find any "flying" games worth my time.. I even went and looked at PS1 titles but no colony wars so.. i always come back to the PC to fly it seems..

Well I just hope if you're going to spend all that time and effort to make a mod, it's for yourself to play, because there wont be anyone else playing by the time you're done Xar with all the new options coming our way. Modding this game can be like a bad habit you should have quit a long time ago but just can't seem to kick it. There are more valuable things to do with your time bud.

All I keep hanging around now is a graphics mod I spun together out of the old SWWT mod and Itano circus just so I can enjoy the storyline on the odd occasion I feel the need to follows Juni's butt around Sirius

I dont think modding is a bad habit at all, even if nobody is gonna play it. I actually think it's one of the best hobbies one can have.

That depends on who you are and what your circumstances are w0dk4. Xar knows where I'm coming from, we came here from Asylum51 and we weren't right in the head back then, nevermind now

Take ye Thorazine Timmy (hehe)

We are... sadly.. probably the last 2 left from that old place, I don't know about your history (too busy counting buttons in my own cell) but it's where I started playing online.. where all my "ethics of play" were formed and where i got the 1st "ich" to change something inside Freelancer.. after seeing a flurry of variants somewhere around V2-V3.

It also taught me very early, before i even started, that Modding FL can be taxing, painful.. and players outright ungrateful at times to all the days/months of work each build represents.. lol.. so i had a head start, Then i moved to a bigger mod.. after trying the "standards" of the time TEKs/Disco etc, I landed in WTS.. eventually ended up an Admin (lolz fun times.. ) then my net went Boom (lightning strike) and i was offline for 2 years (painful)

That's when i really began modding.. No servers to play on.. not many of the mods i had were SP (if any) i NEEDED to mod to continue enjoying Freelancer.. that turned into a rather bloated and highly dubious First release when i got back, I got smacked around for theft.. shunned.. everyone i knew was gone replaced by a bevy of fresh faces and grumpy folks, it was a shock on all accounts.. but i learns how to navigate and quickly made friends with tons of top modders & shipbuilders.. time to start "again" lol

Then Adoxa came... and for me at least.. i had a new game (that was like the old game, but better) to play with. Sol came.. and showered us with goodies, lol, you came bearing gifts from afar... a grand time to be enjoying the hobby indeed.

Were still doing alot better than other games of the same if not half the age.. as a modder at my core i go looking before i even install anything for mods and community.. not alot left for the X series.. X2 modding is well dead (tumbleweeds) problems from those days still linger in the X community.. finding modders that have QQ'd the community is almost impossible.. same old nasty crap we've seen time and time again. It's why i blew up over that "thing" last year.. Seeing us start to fall apart over one thing, seeing the same crap i've seen in other games one MAJOR mod with all the toys.. on a slow painful release and tons of small nothing mods with not alot to offer EVERYBODY.. and the odd gem too.. whilst big older mods go belly up.. yeah I lost it.

But it reminded me of something, something kinda cool.. we still have stuff to argue about.. and folks to argue with, can't say that for most of the games out there.. even Morrowind and Counterstrike/HL2 is on a mass dwindle of good peeps and content.

Oh and i forgot to add..

Tools.. we have much better tools these days than say 4 years ago.. much better than what i had to learn with anyways.

I still get a warm fuzzy felling from HCMP and UTFed, and that "mod studio" thing is da'bomb when used alongside FLE.. i can do things in an hour that would have taken half a day.. man i can even build simple .sur's when i need to.. no more "trying to find a match" which i always thought was a dubious process at best.

I even got to do my longtime dream of making new cloaks.. and seeing them become buyable/mountable/switchable..

We's far from dead, i don't know what's happened to the players (honest) and servers.. but as a modder.. it's still viable to be working on a mod.. there's things the kids haven't seen yet Timmy, things too scary for the newbie modder to wrangle.. there's still a place for me (lol)
