I just find that I haven't played Sins since I found out this was coming out for some reason. I am fine with waiting to make sure the expansions in the Star Trek area are good. I will say however that I want to be in any alpha and beta testing because I am patiently waiting like many and I am sure some feedback from those that visit here should be able to enhance the game too. I just hope that stress gets the time/support he needs to complete this thing so I can play star trek version of this.
I am forced to agree with Nan, It feels like I have been waiting for this project alot longer than I actually have, but I too have refused to play Sins until more Trek ships are released. I am aware, as a modder myself, that mods take time & that the very first post by Major Stress states quite clearly that, "It'll be ready, when its ready.." However, I am somewhat baffled because others (i.e. the Star Wars Mod team & Ezraeil) have been able to release several alpha/beta's in the months that have passed since.
Now its not my intention to rush or critisize in any way & I know that you want several ships in each race before you release your alpha, so as to give a good and proper taste of whats to come. But, if I may remind you, that was back when you had a full working team behind you. With the bulk of your team gone, your internet access being limited & the projects release dates getting constantly pushed back, the best idea may be to start releasing ships like ezraeil did...
I cant speak for everyone here, but I have been following this mod since its conception & I have seen you Major Stress, tell people who were a little less than patient in those first few months, that the mod would be ready when its ready & you councled them to be patient & that it would be well worth their wait. Only to turn around several months after that and say that most of your team has quit and your not sure when or if the mod will be released because of internet & other complications.
While I enjoy knowing that progress is being made, I am tired of seeing pictures of ships I cant play with in a mod, that may never be released, for a game that I refuse to play without the mod.
Its time to stop showing us pictures & time to let us start playing, because with your mod's team in the state its in, it feels more like your just teasing/bragging at this point. Which I know is not the case of course, but thats what its starting to feel like to me.
Just one mans opinion, & again, I dont mean to offend anyone.....
