I don't like how most threads end up like this.
Nobody seems to even try to do things by themselves.
But I love the attention.... I'm so torn.
Maybe if I made the loader open source there'd be more contributions?
Currently isn't the Modloader already open source? At the very least you've released the source to 3.9a, right? I'm not crazy right?
lol, I think most people are like me on this idea. It would be cool to see, but it's nothing interesting enough to bother actually working on personally. SDT is great and is only getting better, I'll stick with that. If someone gets the random, burning desire to try and make another POV type game, I will with them good luck and give some positive encouragement on the forums.
And that's about it.
Dunno about open source, does Kona have an opinion about that kinda deal?
He isn't talking about releasing SDT's source, but the source to the mod loader. Which actually could help to reuse the coding of SDT. But in recreating the game from scratch might be useless.
It's easier to hold up hands and receive than to learn how to do it and get to work and do it yourself. People prefer the path of least resistance, or greatest amount of laziness, depending on your views.
Open source won't make more people learn the code who don't already understand it and if they do try, they will come running to you ModGuy with noob questions like "how do i rite a function?". You've made a name for yourself as the ModGuy, it will forever haunt you.
Lol. Because it's true.
If someone else were to make the game, it would likely be nothing like SDT. A lot of programmers have their quirks and use code differently, so it's very likely whomever did the coding wouldn't code the game the same way Kona did (unless you had the source for SDT). The art would be different as well, unless you go out of your way to style it exactly the same as Kona's, which is really unlikely. Really, unless Kona were to pick up the project (which he won't for a long time if it does happen), you're talking about making a fuck game inspired by a deepthroat game inspired by a deepthroat game.
Not in any way arguing with anyone, but you're going to need dedication to do this. Either tons of dedication to do it yourself, or tons of dedication to work with others to get it done.
