Earlier I also have done a lot of shit. At some point I realized myself I was requesting stuff and at the end I failed to finish my own stuff. At some point some people were highly pissed of because of that. I also requested some stuff from Ferali in the past which never got used at all. For myself somehow shameful, because others spared their time for me and at the end it was actually for nothing. Later I got a little bit more independent with modelling, texturing and stuff. If I have the choice between "somebody can make it for me within 1 week" and "I could do it myself, but I would need 4 weeks", I think I would take the second, simply because I never really trust myself I can finish everything I plan to do. If I e.g. would create some textures and I would plan them to use them for a map which never would happen, you guess it, my own fail. But this feeling of somebody spared his time for your requests and at the end he realizes "jesus, once again he did not finish it at all", would somehow and someday lead to this "why helping him anyway? I mean, he won`t finish anything at all...". You get what I mean? If some small projects/requests keep unused because of motivation lacks... not good but sadly this can happen. But what do you think what happens with way bigger requests? Do you get what I mean?
As you MIGHT now we tried to develop a CMP3, but it did not work anymore for several reasons. In the moment I realized it is useless I told people they should better stop working on their things because I did not want people wasting their time for nothing at the end. I do not know about you, but in such cases I everytime feeled remorse.
The only thing I wanted to tell you is, do not wildly request stuff all along and just think a little bit about its effects. UT has not that many developers left anymore. Of nearly all of us the freetime is very very limited. No matter if we are doing something for yourself or for other people, we should make sure, it won`t end up in the trash can at the end.
If I would not have put in my two cents, your request thread would have ended most likely without any promosing reply on your side anyway. And BTW: Only because of the finished mappack some years ago it does not mean, I can allong with hundres of requests for anything and everything. The world does not revolve for particular single persons, but rather for the community at all. I know my post was not that kind, but in some cases it is requrired to be a little bit more direct. Just accept a little bit responsibility for the things you are asking for (no matter about previous projects, a modders motivation can always fade - this can happen to EVERYBODY), specially like I said bigger things and beware about the lack of todays amount of developers and their freetime.
About to be non-activeMy very last UT map project
