I just love the comment that if we put it up for public download we "should" expect to get nit picked, and trashed to death, and have absolutely ridiculous demands be made of us. Those individuals really show respect our hobby.,,, NOT
0.9 gives constant minidumps and 0.95 is not available for download, meaning that this mod doesn't work, at least for me. Requiem is a far more refined and polished product, although I do like having 4 factions and appreciate the variety of ships in SOGE. IMO, the models are a bit small; SOGE looks like normal Sins unless you zoom in all the way, except it isn't as fun because the research/tech tree thing is boring. There isn't any depth to SOGE. It's all about the variety of ships offered, which can't even be appreciated unless one uses cinematic mode or zooms in 100% on each individual ship. I like being able to build the Executor, and I would love to decimate some worlds/fleets using an Eclipse SSD or a DEATH STAR, game balance be damned.
I'm sure 97240SX can defend himself, but all things considered I don't see anywhere here that makes ridiculous demands or is any way "trashed to death" - that seems a little hyperbolic. In fact, given that it crashed on the guy repeatedly (due to nobody's fault in particular, possibly his for downloading a version that's known to be crashy), I'd say he's being pretty generous in pointing out what he did like? People that are ridiculously demanding deserve to be told off (WHY ISN'T MOD HERE YET??????????????) but that's a whole different ballgame.
Going off on someone because they said the game doesn't work for them, the research tree is dull, or that it's difficult to view the (wide variety of) ships, I've found, will quickly cause modders to burn out on their projects, especially because those same people can often change their minds. If they didn't really care about the project, they wouldn't come back and tell you why they didn't enjoy it - they'd just hit the Uninstall button.
and re: Evaders' post (didn't want to quote the whole thing): Thanks, I gotcha.
