I gave more than two years of my life leading this project and since I've given it up I've watched it slowly die. I don't like that. I'm also at a point in my life where I have very little free time. But I need a distraction from my life during my few free moments. So I want to get this thing going again. Hopefully my actions will motivate others to help because I cannot do much on my own. This may not last long as my current situation (and no I won't elaborate on what's going on in this public forum, and I'll choose who to share it with privately) may not be more than a few weeks or months. At any point things could go back to the way they were a few days ago for me. My first priority is to my two boys (15 months and 3 months old).
But in that short time I will give an effort to reignite this mod. It felt really good to see spaceeinstein post something here as I've valued his contributions greatly. I hope he has more to give. And if some of the old guys (ModelingMan, Hammer83, PatrickW, SteaVor, hell even Demarest) want to get involved again, I would LOVE that. And I will also welcome any new blood to this mod. The things that need doing are not that difficult (in theory). We're not creating anything new, just trying to make old stuff work on the new(er) engine.
This project deserves at least one more major polished release. The way I see it, there's a few scm bugs to fix, which I will work on to the best of my ability. Some more exe hacking may need to be done to finish that properly. There's also a few peds to convert. I'm not worried about the random pedestrians on the street, but all of the actors called by the script should be converted. There's a few minor map glitches that we need to sort out.
So come on and join me. Let's give this thing one more chance!
EDIT: And just to clarify something, we'll be using Sanny Builder now for the scm. Barton's builders are deader than this mod.
