With no editorial this week, the random screaming on Hellchick's editorial last week continues!
I just wanted to comment "Eric"'s letter in the last mailbag...
Sure i agree that we mod makers get alot of help from the game developers.
But what about that part "It's just a frick'n mod"?
You mean making a mod isn't a good way to start?
And then you said "If they were so [FRAG]ing great they could just do their game
from scratch and make money off of it. Of course, the fact that they are unable to
do this proves they are no where as good as they think."
Hmmm.... If I'm not totally wrong several Game companies has bougt the Q3/Q1/Q2 engine
and uses it for a base... sure they add some code to it. But oft they just change things in
the same way mod users can (Sure some times it would need alot of coding but it's almost always
That's all folks!
(Sorry for my bad english)
Subject: editorial responce responce
First off .... the mail like on the bottom of
instead of to the mail address.
L33t'M0n: Hahaha... Lee'Mon forgot a "mailto:" tag.
Lee'Mon: Shut up.
OK, so MOD authors want fame and fortune, or at least fame. I know that
if I spent a month or so on a project I would appreciate some sort of
response. Something as little as an e-mail which conveys 'awesome',
'cool', 'fun', or 'amusing' would provide at least some feedback or
reward for work well done. As it stands I'm betting a very very low
percentage of those people who download and play a mod actually provide
feedback or thank the authors in any way shape or form. Perhaps it's
less about fame and more about just rewards, just say thanks!
When you pour your heart and mind into something it's nice if it returns
to you in some way rather than disappearing entirely.
Lee'Mon I understand this one entirely. Some Quake2 fans have taken to playing my team's Blast Chamber project again. Seeing them have fun almost a year after our first version is plenty of inspiration to continue work on the Quake3 version, Blast Arena.
How'm I Doing?
Some people commented on my first Mailbag last week...
Subject: spelling mistake in your first mailbag - tsk tsk :-)
"Alright, on the final page, I intend to start a new tradition, by having
L33t'M0n answer the main I'd rather not answer myself."
I wonder if you meant 'mail' instead of 'main' there?? :)
Keep up the good work, anyhow :-)
Lee'Mon: Um... DOH!?
