I have returned! (...)
« on: July 21, 2007, 11:48:51 AM »
Believe it or not, I never actually died along the way here -- although I got Ron Losey seriously concerned, and the rest of you have probably given up hope. :) I'm leaving my current job in two weeks, and I really hope I'll find something else that will leave me with a little more time and energy to work on this -- and that I'll be more used to work by then and will have more energy to begin with...

At present, I'm -- still :P -- in the midst of the RCM conversion. I'm going to take a look today at a model of ASLOW weaponry etc. that Ron prepared a little while ago (how long of a little while? You probably know me well enough to guess :P -- about a month...), and I'll probably use it at least as a placeholder.

By the way, if anyone wants to work as a concept artist for this mod, I have thorough writeups of all civilian clothing for this setting that I will be overjoyed to send you. I think concept art is a requirement for 3D modelling, but I have to admit that I can't do or learn to do everything myself...

I also have the problem that the way things are currently going, the Mother of All Battles is about to erupt between the story I intend to write and the game mechanics. However, the mechanics are such a smash hit (with myself too!) that I think what I want to revise is the story, not the ruleset -- so that's going to mean a lot of reconsidering, too...

I can't guarantee how active I'll be on these fora -- it sometimes starts taking a lot of time -- but I'll definitely keep developing...

So, are you lessening the amount of horses? :P

I hadn't really thought about this question -- I didn't realize it was a concern. I think I should probably start a thread about this...

(Glad you're still here, though!)

Edit:

Actually, I think you're right -- it would make a lot of sense to just drop the tf_guarantee_horse from lower-tier paths of troops who will level up into cavalry. And add a few genuine lower tiers, too -- there's not much room at the bottom right now.

The troop tree's in for a serious revision, as you might guess... :)

Also, make sure to add High-tier footmen. Lest some of us *cough*me*cough* be disappointed. What happened to the footman vote?  :lol:

I'll be sure to. In part of my reconsidering of the setting, I'm catching on that this model of "horsemen only" isn't really culturally apt...

Good luck with the job search! Wishing you less stress in the process!

Where are those costume descriptions by the way?

I was meaning to post them a while ago, but I never got around to it. Now that you mention it, I'll put them up now -- if anyone wants to contribute concept art for them, they'd certainly be welcome... :)

I'm honored to have you with us, too. :) Today was my last day at work; I need to get cracking on the job hunt, but evidently on the mod, too...

Job first. Your computer might be requisitioned by the government, because you didn't pay taxes or something. THEN where would ASLOW be?  :lol:

Very good point, of course. :) Hopefully I'll find some situation where I'll be able to work more on the mod; I'm thinking of something with US government somewhere...

I love the horse archers in this, keep the horse archers, but I reckon there isn't enough infantry.
