Sans47 and to the rest of the community who share similar thoughts,
I always thought the would have did something more for christmas than simply advertising a mod that isn't their own.
Christmas and the holiday season is a time of giving, sharing and positivity. Sparrow has been working incredibly hard on her amazing Christmas mod, and we wanted to share it. It's a beautifully crafted mod that she poured a lot of time into and it really shows off when playing or watching it. We felt that the mod was something that more people should see, so we decided to show it off on our website under the "Community Spotlight" banner. We've done this in the past, most notably highlighting Late Night at the Kwik-E-Mart
, Yellow Shift
and The Odyssey of Springfield
in The Summer Road Trip event
We hope you enjoy Sparrow's mod and continue to support other mod creators as our community evolves.
I think DM4 is ready after two Years of developement.
Donut Mod 4 is being developed by a few really smart and talented guys.
It's been a project the team has worked on for ages now because of various advancements:
- Custom characters
- Custom maps, which by the way: Takes a VERY long time to develop. Between developing the tools that build the map and the map itself, it's hundreds and hundreds of man hours put into carefully crafting something genius.
- Custom objective types
The project has took various turns, changes and right now I think the team is on to something great. I fully support them and however long it takes to build out. They will show off and tell more when they're ready, and as it stands, I'm not sure when that will be.
The guys are working their hardest to make a very special and complete a passion project. I repeat "passion project", meaning we have not earned any money or profited on this in the slightest.
In fact quite the opposite:
- Lucas' Simpsons: Hit & Run Multiplayer has cost us nearly $40 USD
- Hosting our website costs us money each year, ranging from $12 USD - $60 USD.
- Lucas provides us with hosting for our website, which he pays for each month.
- We've spent hundreds of dollars on tools we use to develop Donut Mod and things to maintain it such as GitHub and Dropbox.
- Hundreds of man hours we took off from our actual jobs to work on things related to modding/donut mod.
The Donut Mod team is working hard and we can't wait to show more.
I've unlocked this thread as I feel we haven't responded officially to Sans47's complaint, so I will air it publicly. Unless the conversation becomes spam, attacking or insulting, I'm going to leave it unlocked; though I understand your rational for the initial lock Max and appreciate it.
