Sadly people, after a clear PM from Kryo...
The X-Worlds(S_09-A) file worth of ships & fleets work i did over the last six months of extensive shipyard tasks is, how should i put it politely, rejected before it is even zipped to go in the Library. No thanks to some StarTrek freak who went the Rapidshare ways and is being sought after by SD for illegal distribution of models & other's work. Makes sense, it's fairplay. I DO agree.
But i also write Readmes in zips. Read them. It might help you understand.
Lemme explain, in public right here for all to witness, cuz i think it matters much if only for creativity freedoms;
-- You'd need to download his preciously exclusive KHSM, some of General Pants jewels, and a few more important items found in the Library - approved, there for all to get and use.
-- Make HUGELY complex modifications to both set of files all by yourselves without knowing exactly what to do to make my ships compatible with the currently valid & various xmls distributed in perfectly legal versions of this game.
-- Alter a batch file enough to use only the Tiny Fake hulls.
-- Put a bunch of alternate models in the proper GFX folder along with a bunch of re-textured materials greyed and edited so far that it all redefines the appearance of MY stuff.
-- Re-create the entire Styles from scratch since mines would most probably become incompatible. But, you wouldn't have any, right?
-- Cross fingers everything works as expected and promise me you'd never ever add comments into this thread claiming XW_Ships is bugged because i wouldn't be RESPONSIBLE for this mess.
-- Then somehow after a few weeks of acrobatics, play with 39 different FlagShips. ThunderBirds-12345, genuine Shado UFOs. Alien & Human Core ships. Saucers from Apocalypse. Send an AFRonin Retaliator to a Radio-Active extreme planets to complete a task rather than win...
-- or not.
But, wait there's some hope yet still for those of us who believe X-Com can roam in space freely as much as all other fleets currently available. Remember MrKorx Asa?
I will zip it all for him to approve or not. This week.
I'll switch gears towards I-Mod-Productions and its MMV -- if i must.
