Unhappy Sad News.

Contrary to popular belief I'm not dead.

Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure this mod is.

Naturally, given the exuberantly long period of time since any updates, I owe everyone an explanation. Which is simply: life gets in the way. This past year has been a roller coaster - lots of highs and lots of lows. First, my grandfather fell ill last year (when the mod was unfortunately plagued by menu issues that I've been unable to correct on my own - and attempting to contact Fracman for help proved futile - he was as scarce as I've been as of late) and, quite sadly, passed away earlier this year after several hard-fought months.

On the upside (for me, at least) I have a new job which affords me some degree of financial stability and independence, for the time being. The downside is that it leaves me pretty exhausted at the end of the day and gives me little time to pursue all of my interests, game design - which is rather taxing and a lot more effort than you may realize - being chief among them.

All of this should have gone up on the main page except... I nearly suffered a Hard Disk crash recently that forced me to back up as many of my personal files as possible. I believe I've saved the most recent data from the Mod but it's going to take a while to sort through everything to be sure. On top of that, I have to track down my login info for the DFMOD website. So until then I can't officially update any news or downloads.

Given the logistics and the fact that this community has dramatically shrunk with the lack of a new JK game - the only major project that still seems to be going strong is OJP and that's likely due to the loose nature of the modification - at least compared to ours - it's pretty much impossible for me to finish this game on my own, even if I had all the time and dedication in the world (which, sadly, I don't). It hasn't been an easy decision to make, which is part of the reason why I haven't updated in so long - I didn't want to admit to myself that there was no way I could reasonably continue (and who wants to wait another six or seven years, at best, for the whole thing. But the writing is on the wall at this point. At best, once I get things sorted I'll upload the finished Detention Center revamp and what I've completed of Nar Shada and Jabba's ship (which are significant), though I don't foresee much beyond NS seeing a full release.

So, as of today, 1/26/12, DFMOD is, sadly, done. I will make it a point to get the remaining unfinished assets out there so anyone can play around with them as they see fit.

Peace and May the Force Be With you.

EDIT: No sooner had I completed this post than I found the login info. So it's officially going up on the website. It IS official, as of now.
