Welcome to the forum vv31

poorly, the game is excellent, but impossibility of modding - it's very bad!

Hi vv31. I'd also like to extend a welcome to the forums.

Only bright bit of news was this from Erik a couple of months ago.


quote:

ORIGINAL:  Erik Rutins

We've been working on various plans to expand the market for Distant Worlds and one of these required us to build in support for localization (i.e. different languages).  We had hoped 1.5.0.4 would be ready to go official while Elliot worked on the localization support, but unfortunately it didn't work out that way.  The good news is that adding in the localization support also makes it easier for us to externalize more of the game in the future, which is potentially good news for modders.


It's not much to go on, but it does mean that more mod support is up and coming. How soon? Who can say.

I am not a pessimist, but if they say, but do not ...
as shown by my experience - for modding the game to must open the files.

Well, I am hoping that will happen. This is a fun game, I want to do more with it... but it is a fun game.

It is pretty clear the game will never be opened up enough for full conversion mods.

It's the unfortunate thing about having only a one man development team. Elliot does all this stuff himself, and can't tell us anything until he's certain about it.

Usually that's very close to the release date.

If we do, it'll probably be way off in the future, when we're all playing DW 2 or something.

We'll get little bits at a time, and hopefully, we'll get somewhere pretty meaningful in the end.

Elliot is the only one? You are playing with us...
I KNEW the company was small, but I did not know there was only one person... Man, he does an excellent job.

Yap, the company does have some other people as well but not for coding per se...at least not for the core part afaik
Imagine if we had cloning available now

I think he gets some help from some of the Matrix staff, not totally sure how much and in what area. He doesn't do the graphics himself either.

It's pretty much all on his shoulders though.

He said in one initial early release post

It's mostly a one man indie project with help from graphics contractors etc

I need only modding of components.
