No, I'm saying why was GW created in the first place?

Re: whats the hold up? (not a troll)
Originally as an FS forum I'm pretty sure.

:rolleyes: To what end? Didn't HLP fill the void?

Dunno. I think it was more of a 'gaming' forum, but with FS at the center. Or something. I dunno. Don't ask me.

Re: whats the hold up? (not a troll)
colecampbell666, what do you mean? Why are you somewhat implying that there should be only one FreeSpace fansite? As far as I'm concerned there can be a virtually unlimited number of fanbases. I even mourn the loss of GTD Bastion and Hades Combine... :(

GTD Bastion... I liked their forum icons and layout. :nod:

Re: whats the hold up? (not a troll)
I'm just curious as to where GW came from. Why did it start? For what specific purpose?

What was the URL of GTD Bastion?

Re: whats the hold up? (not a troll)
At the time HLP wasn't accepting new hosted projects. It was something of an experiment to see if we could get people to join the existing hosted projects rather than starting their own.

It didn't work particularly well and it opened up a market for other sites to host projects. There were a few others that popped up around the same time but GW was the only one with any staying power.

Re: whats the hold up? (not a troll)
No, that started out as a Descent community IIRC, and expanded to FS as well.

Did they host Descent projects at the beginning?

SectorGame is older than HLP.

 
Re: whats the hold up? (not a troll)
 :bump:

First off I'm not trolling.  The proposed plot for this mod looks very interesting.  Is it currently on hold until other things are finished?

Re: whats the hold up? (not a troll)
Yeah. That and the fact that most of the team seem to be busy with other stuff too. I am very slowly making progress but unless there are talented FREDders sitting around with nothing to do then MG is going to progress only when I find time to work on it.

Re: whats the hold up? (not a troll)
He pops in occasionally.

But Geezer was only ever the ideas guy. The remaining team are either in the wind or around but busy. DaBrain and Cannonfodder are busy with Diaspora (amongst other things), Miburo is busy with Tales EAS Janus, and Singh is AWOL.

I'm pretty sure I have enough in the way of mods and stuff to actually make MG but I don't have the time to FRED it until Diaspora R1 is out of the way.

Re: whats the hold up? (not a troll)
You should get all the team mates back or, at least, try to recruit new people. Doing that solo may be too much, IMO.
