Tykell: DaSquade, sorry...:
No problem, by the big public and even some friend didn't knew ;). At times i try to break the circle of misunderstanding.
[quote=That said, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, your nimitz always had tons of potential ]
Well that was my point. The Nimitz was broken when it left my hands so many years ago, but somehow nobody cared to fix it. The main problem (too big pieces) just got transported over and over...:). The problem was and still is, BIS geo/roadway/fire geo is limited to 60mx60mx60m. At that time it was all expecimental and many including i thought 64m was safe...untill you start to split it up again (lift etc...). Anyway, the space and parts are just not engine stable. So untill the main problem gets fixed, it is pointless for me....but nice to see my model still flows around.
Don't want to drap it even more offtopic, but regarding the 'some guys' and 'WIPs' and 'never-release'.
Well, i'm member of the exclusive club :p. Fox suggested my that club name today aswell ;).
Untill you have spend so many heures as use 'member' creating fresh models from scretch, nobody can judge about that person. They can have their opinion though.
Like Wolle said, since ArmA (shaders-new features etc), work time has increased a lot. Double if not more...Don't forget most of those 'WIP guys' don't have a crew behind them and all the work comes on their sholders. We all do it for free, BECAUSE we like doing it, creating stuff nobody has made before, because it is our hobby and life.
No need to say, but i will, after awhile a very promising model and WIP can become boared and new stuff takes over.
I have a HD full of WIPs. Some have made it in the hands of others who decided to use and finish those last few bits.
There is a huge volume of talent in the community, but only a few can combine it all (modeler, texture, cfg maker, etc...).
Last thing (my case at least), is that some are very cretic on them self and if the person himself isn't 100% happy with the result it become a 'dust-collector'. In the end there are only 24h in a day....
So please a bit respect!
Last thingy, on the other hand, the person you judge have a very different opinion on 'import projects'.
Sorry but 2 weeks for the Nimitz is in my homble opinion a 2 week of lost time. In the time i could of made a brand new nimitz that works flowless ;) (mather of speaking). I know of the saying 'no need to reinvent the wheel'..but i broken tire will one day need to be repaired.
Final final word on this, keep in mind the WIP are WIP and no proof you will ever see it on your HD. Between WIP and released addon there is a long road with many know and unknow obsticles. motivation, time, interest, HD loss are only a few off them.
Again like Wolle said, opinions like yours have made many people to leave the scene although it was most of the times a combination of things. We are all old enough to see the most important things.
Anyway, back on topic (just wanted to lighten things up a bit).
