Sounds like it is time for the multi players to join together and start development of a new multi player mod.ruthlessferengi wrote:now on to business. We all want this community to succeed. Modding department is doing great, there still a few playing solo games, but multiplayer aspect is in a deep hole ... no matter how u cut it, shiny new fonts and new interface won't keep this game alive and to its' full potential without mp componenet . So how about getting an mp fest going with all of the admi/HRH_AFC included?

with the latest release of ECM and all the fixes (non MP fixes can be rolled back) it might be a perfect time to join together. Even if you are unable to do the work yourself you should be able to enlist enough help to complete a combined effort exclusively for MP game play. And create an official AFC multi player mod. Also once BOTF lobby is able to support mods this can only make MP gaming more popular.
I will of course I volunteer assembly and creation of new installer and updates. maybe peter1981 and or Tethys could do some hex editing when needed. I do feel this could be a quick and well done project as long as no major changes are made. (new races/new interfaces or new ship models) The latest release of ECM has many retextured models that still use vanilla hobs so they will not slow down game play and look much better than vanilla textures.
