Ok folks I am sorry to announce that as of this morning, I am no longer involved with the Machina Terra Project.  Real life has taken over and Styxx has refused to listen to reason on my time restrictions.  Upon my telling him that I would no longer be able to work on MT under the conditions he has set forth for me, he pulled his permission to make Origins a sequel to Machina Terra.

So, now not only am I no longer able to work with MT, but I have to cancel Origins.

To the rest of the staff and to the people waiting, i apologize for what I am now going to do.

Any and all of my work that is not in an alpha state is considered to be a Work in Progress, I am NOT realeasing any WiP of mine to MT.  That means that I am taking with me 37 Missions, 3 effects, and numberous POFs for the models.

Find someone else to do it for you.

You can't take the sky from me.  Can't take that from me.

Is this something that could be solved by sitting down and having a long chat?

On one level this is a positive thing. If you haven't got the time to finish something it's best to just throw it at someone else and run away sometimes. That's what I did with TBP:RW. If I hadn't it'd probably still be in development limbo. Withdrawing your work is a bit extreme though isn't it ShadowWolf? Aldo is right. You guys need to sort it out. You have put a lot of time and effort into this. To throw it away just because you're leaving seems a bit crazy. People leave TBP all the time. It's no big deal. I'm not blaming you dude, I don't know what's gone on. I would just like reason to prevail. ;)

Maybe you could use the missions for a project that actually has a chance of being released ?  ;)

Well, that's just too bad. We have plenty of finished work besides those missions and POFs - missions, models, skyboxes, cutscenes, the works. The project will go on...
Probably away. Contact through email.

Seems an awful pity for the two of you to finish like this. I'm talking about this purely from the project side of things as I don't claim to know anything about your relationship or what happened. And while I'd certainly like to see you all return to work on MT, you've obviously reached this impass for a reason.

Maybe you can work something out in time, I hope so, if not, well, it's a shame it's happened either way.
Watch out for the Guns! They'll getcha!

Well that's that then. RIP MT. This was the campaign I was looking forward to the most out of all those hosted on HLP. So it's time for the sad smiley  :( ;). Have fun with whatever you do next ShadowWolf.

Ok, I suppose this has called attention to the fact that we have lots of stuff done already, but it's not really being funny or anything. None of the content will be lost. The project will be back on track as soon as I'm more advanced on my MSc dissertation project, which is taking all of my time right now, I can't even follow the forums properly anymore. And ShadowWolf can tell the rest of the story, 'cause I'm too busy.

But hey, all's sunny and calm on MT land as far as I'm concerned. It's siesta time. Since 2004, actually. But the afternoon shift should be starting soon. ;)
