I'm not quite sure how serious you are, but while your support is inspiring and very much appreciated, saying stuff like that really comes across as either sarcastic or just plain absurd.DHeadshot wrote:Shmaynoria 1 was just the best mod I ever played, fantastically done from beginning to end and made Ceilick look like a bit of an amateur in comparison. Therefore, I think I should be able to be forgiven for wanting a sequel...
While I think Shmaynoria is good for what it is, by no means do I consider myself better than anyone else, especially such veterans as Ceilick and Szemi.
And even if that were true, I don't feel it's right to openly make comparisons like that. That behavior only breeds competition, hostility and bitterness between users, and completely ruins the fun of an active modding community in my honest opinion. I don't like my work being judged or compared, even if it's in my favor.
I know I've talked trash about Ceilick's TUIT trilogy, but it was clearly hyperbole, and any legitimate criticisms were either constructive or due to the fact that I hold TUIT to a higher standard than any other mods.
Ceilick is aware of this, but I just hope that I haven't alluded anyone into thinking I'm somehow arrogant, or that I think I'm more important than everyone else.
That's simply not the case, and if that's what you think of me, then surely you're just not familiar with my sense of humor.
Anyway, at this point it feels that I've destroyed any comical value that Shmaynoria had by over-analyzing and exploiting the "humor" of the game, but rest assured it will be finished, and I will put full effort into making it as fun as possible.
Any support or suggestions is very much appreciated, and I really am glad you liked the first game, DHS.
