7DS 2.01 was with 13 races
Have Ten Races Work [ ]
The 13 races from 7DS 2.01 was working without huge problem
Balance Races [ ]
In fact, you need to learn new strategy with each of the races... The rogues have no colony ship by example... AI will not be able to play these race correctly but a human player will adapt... Problem is in the AI who is cannot be modded...
Some complain about the Atlantian being to much strong... again, need to adapt and seek/destroy their research lab... who are low priority in case of a AI player...
Make Races "Distinct" [x]
Make Races Distinct Apart From Name Changes [ ]
We work the same way that several other mod here... first create the entity structure, and adding moddels after... for 7DS 2.5, there will not be a lot of change in the amount of races but a lot of "place holder" sins model will be replaced by new original models... several new abilities created... and more
Include 2.5gb of "Eye candy" [x]
Make sure that 2.5gb isn't full of duplicate and unused files to prevent bloating [ ]
The mod is and remain a WIP until the final and last release in maybe a few year from now... was a choice to make release before everything is ready... on the other hand, you have other mod who have work 2-3 year but have not yet make some release... waiting until all is perfect...
Change the hue/saturation on all the menus to create a horrible mess [x]
Will not comment on this... taste are something personal... on personal level, there is some HUD that i don't like in 7DS but some other people like it...
Prevent mod from working when set to specific settings [x]
This happen with all mods using the balknight/manshooter particule system... if you are not new to sins, you certainly know it from several other mod... the well know "don't put your graphic setting on very high"
Make sure the mod is updated to work with the newest patches [ ]
7DS 2.5 is for the last Entrenchment patches
Charge people to downloaded programs like Filezilla [x]
Have never hear of it !!! can you explain ?
Have your download service actually work [ ]
Agree... since the host move last year, it have not yet work correctly... not a big deal since 7DS 2.5 is not yet a public release... and for the Beta, life sync is used
Get mod downloade "50,000 times" [x]
Get 10 people playing it at once [ ]
Have already happen for 7DS 2.1 with ICO... recently, i have "recruit" a new playrester who own 2 or 3 LAN system for test 7DS 2.5 in multiplayer LAN party...
Stick "by Danman" on everything [x]
Far to be true... it happen that we don't always agree with the choice Dan make but in so situation we discuss about it... by example, recently, Dan have wish to make a public release of the 7DS 2.5 alpha and have start a topic about it asking what we think... i have dissagree because there is some last critical bug who need to be resolved and advice waiting the first beta before a public release... but if the majority of the guys ask for a release, it will follow the majority...
In fact, you cannot know all who happen on our forum... several part of it are hidden to usual people... guest can only see the introduction post of the various mod hosted, members can see a little more, playtester have a specific section who reveal to them... mod dev/leader have their own section too... and a tiny section is reserved for partner/admin... being a moderator there, i have access to everything and i see what happen in the backroom
You are right I should of padded my post count before barging right in, I mean really where are my manners!
The real problem is to make critic about thing that you don't know... you don't know 7DS 2.5 since only mode dev/leader and playtester have access to it... you know only the years old 7DS 2.1 ... you don't know Danmangame forum and how we work because you are not part of the mod teams...
More problematic is your attitude... if something don't please you in the mod, simply make a post and ask more info about it... if for some technical reason, it is not possible, we will explain it... if you make a constructive critic and that several other player make a similar one, it is very possible that the mod will be adapted for please the majority of player... but making post who are nothing more that a attack will lead to nothing...
