Death132;n8334190 said:This is ridiculous to me. Essenthy has stated that he refuses to accept donations so money clearly isn't involved. What is then? Pride? Fame? Having a small number of random anonymous people on the internet knowing that this is his creation that no one else can touch? There is no "practical" reason to refuse others the opportunity to fix a free mod that the creator himself isn't even prioritizing. I know that Essenthy has put countless hours into STLM and I get that everyone is different with their own way of viewing situations but no good comes out of this type of mindset.
I understand not wanting someone elses custom updates in the mods official thread but to outright disapprove of any tweaks even if shared elsewehere is just ridiculous since these are simply modifications of a video game.
essenthy;n8334380 said:why should i prioritize this mod ? am i paid for this ? is there a boss somewhere that i owe something to ? you do realize thats its free and am doing it in my FREE time that i should spend enjoying other things than looking at variables right ? espcially after doing that for months and months, but no i have to update it and fix NOW or ELSE !!!$$$
Death132;n8334440 said:I never implied that you should prioritize STLM nor did I imply that you are required to update it. I was saying that since you weren't prioritizing it, it shouldn't be a big deal that someone else took it upon themselves to make updates while you were away.
Like I said I understand not wanting someone elses updates in your thread since you have a specific vision of how you want STLM. If he worked on his own updates and only distributed them privately through messages would you be ok with that?
Good to know, and I thank you for explicitly stating this. When I finish my PC build, I will look for a lighting/reshade mod to make the game more comparable to the E3 presentations. It's nice to know that I can ask you for help when tweaking it.essenthy;n8334460 said:dude he can whatever he want, i always encouraged peoples to make their own modes instead of asking me to do it for them, even to modify STLM, take it as a basis and make your own things, anyone who need help with this can ask me on twitter if needed, peoples already asked me and i always respond when i have time, just cite me in the credits if you ever do something like that
Death132;n8333670 said:Truthfully all this does is hold back the modding potential of the game. @Mishikedman has proven to be very capable and talented with these frequent updates that were showing a ton of progress. Essenthy clearly has other priorities with how infrequently he comes here and updates the mod. He hasn't even bothered responding to this situation. That is enough to clearly show that this is not a priority for him.
