Is the mod dead? Yes, very much so. Why? Well...in between Quanto's harddrive problems and the lack of finding people who want to make missions (I tried, but grew to hate using FRED and mission design in general. I'm more an artist.) the whole thing pretty much died out.
It's kinda sad to see everything go to naught, so I'll talk to Quanto to get what WIP and finished stuff we have out the door to everyone. Not that I think anyone would have a use for any of it due the mods rather distinct style, but maybe one day someone might!
