This is not my personal blogpost but I need to ask you something.
Recently a guy (one of those who played Redesigned) contacted me and made a long post regarding quality of this mod. Long story short, here are some of his thoughts:
1) There is a new huge exploiting.
2) I am a big liar (?).
3) There are still bugs from Vanilla and I should have fixed them (it is impossible without dev tools though)
4) Mod is a huge mistake.
5) Vanilla Random encounters are better.
6)This mod is a parody version of Vanilla.
7) Some hidden insults.
There were some good points though, like some surprising bugs he discovered. But this guy prefered to hold them, to collect everything together and make his punch stronger. As a modmaker since the past I used to deal with such people (some of them are just trolls), but he claimed to be a very huge fan of S2 and S3 — this raised an interesting thought.
Does this mod offend anyone? Is it really bad and cannot be improved? Was it not worth your time? etc. I know some of you enjoed it and even were grateful but... What if someone was pissed and just didn't bother to reply? Right now I am in the middle of new development, but wonder if there is something I should know to make another mod even better or... not that bad at the very least.
So please, if you didn't like anything, post it here. Or PM me. This information will be invaluable.
And thanks for all the kind words and earlier feedback. I really appreciate them.
You are putting waay too much stock into some random guy who probably never lifted a finger in his life to create something, and was most likely just trying to get a rise out of you - judging by the emotional outbursts in his post (according to the list you made).
Constructive criticism is good. Thinly veiled insults, disrespect and acting all condescending as if the guy was some kind of a Silent Storm professor is not and shouldn't be treated with respect either.
I haven't finished the game with your mod yet, but so far I absolutely love all the changes and fixed you made. It is a breath of fresh air in the dying community and maybe with some more advertising it could bring more people in (and with your True Terror project maybe even a renaissance of the SS modding community?
Also yes, I have been lurking for years here and your projects made me finally post again.
