Update: OK Ordian, Me and my brother have been playing your mod quite a bit the last two weeks(not this last updated one with extra SC yet) And I realized that I was forgetting something that would allow me to use your mod on maps I make with Forge. I asked before if I could just use the galaxydef file for the forge or was I doing something wrong because I had tried with no success.
I am bonehead,(musta had one too many shots of tequilla that night me thinks) Ok this one is easy....All I did was place your Mad Scientist mod galaxyscenario.def file into the galaxy forge and then make a map. Then install the map to the entrenchment folder with my other maps.. open galmanifest and add 1 to file count and maps name at bottom of list. Well the map did not show up. But then the bonehead had a light bulb go on over his head. Dum dum dum ... Dum......lol. All I had to do was the notepad routine INSIDE your mod and PRESTO....... my maps with my browse pics using your mod/galscen.def file. Kicks ace!!!
So I emailed my map and the .tga to my bro last night. He copied them to their respective folders and we played one awesom round of Mad Scientist!!!!! We both love this mod, and your choice of music for the mod lets me know that you are a MAD SCIENTIST CONQUERING GENIUS. Brings to mind some of the battle scenes in the movie Conan the Barbarian......remember Conan wearing the black and white war paint befor assaulting Thulsa Dooms fortress? Awesom! Keep up the good work Ord.......you have my support!!!
Ya know, out of curiosity I looked back through this entire thread and IMHO Ordian, statistics matter.....stat#1) you help everyone that ask for help, and yet provide a mod that enhances a game we all love with no incentive to do so other than your own. Stat #2) far as I can see only one person has taken exception to your generosity. Stat # 3) we all agree bugs exist in all mods and are sooner or later found and fixed but your mod WORKS for to my knowledge 99% of those that download it.
Well if you add those stats up Ord, I think you can see that the 99% agree with your assessment of the 1%. You can not please all the people all the time. So I would suggest to everyone who reads this post from this point on to simply ignore someone that has made an attempt to exact retribution for a kindness that you have offered. I say this because you and I know that I had troubles with getting the mod to work with my brother.....but you stuck it out with me by answering my questions and responding to me(faster than I ever expected!) and I did not give up! I knew the problem was on my end the moment you and the rest on the forum noted to me what their checksums were. If a nay sayer can not read these forums, not find others with that problem, and then realize that their specific issue is/may be unique to them , then there is nothing else any of us can do to help.
For the rest of us, we all love the mod and in fact I check the forums everyday just to see if you or Dolynick have made any changes or updates.......I hav eonly onemore wish for SINS......and that is for your mod to be compatible with the stargate races mod.........THAT WOULD ROCK. Or for that matter... any extra races lol. I'm not picky. Atm they both give dumps if enabled together. I'd play Stargate races more if I could pull myself away from Mad Scientist.....but thats not gonna happen,,,,,, Muhu hahahahaha.
Thanks a million Ord, without you modders and us modder wannab's this game would have gotten boring real fast! I mean imagine vanilla sins right off the disk with no mods.............Shivers run down my spine!
