    Yeah well... Two of our guys came alive and started making models and concepts, otherwise we have our one coder who's a bit busy atm and...that's probably it for CT.

    so people are wasting their time on a mod that's most likely never going to reach a playable state instead of helping make empires better

    Tried ages ago, they don't like working for Empires, or maybe it's just Source. Either way, better no community at all while they learn, rather than this community.

    And? They're learning. Besides, if they don't want to work for Empires they don't have to. CT is quite different from Empires, although it follows the same basic structure.

    Tell me, what do you waste your life on? :confused: It's done for fun, not because someone cracked a whip.

    He was joking, or if not, I have no idea.

    Right, and you'll be bitched at too. Whereas they work in an environment that is more... ok, less caustic. They don't produce anything, that's fine, they still get to discuss things and try their hand at it and no one's yelling at them.

    We have two people who came alive this month, they concepted, they discussed, they modelled. They don't have any fancy flying ships or maps or particles all ready and finished, so it'd be useless to be with Empires, and more, they don't like to do things where they'll be kicked in the face, like this place.

    And hey we might not ever have anything, for Empires that'd be a total waste, for us it's a learning experience.

    We have a map that's fairly done, a couple of placeholder models, someone who was coding most of it and a bunch of different game mechanics and systems in the works (and a bunch more to figure out). No one works on this day to day, and we don't know if it'll ever get done. But they want to see it done, so they work on it bit by bit.

    :/ Everyone on this forums wants top notch things perfect and ready when it gets released. From my experience, if I think something is a good idea, I gotta stick with it. Even if I am told it's absolute shit by every single fucker on these forums, because there are many people who have told me otherwise in different places.

    it's not about comparing shit to what it would be if EA produced it. You get what you get, and if you don't like it, shut the fuck up and don't use it.
