I'm wondering is this a case where people (myself included back in 2011) would post their progress, but then later disappear from the forums and their work with them?
jet800's site isn't working, does that mean any contributions uploaded hereto are dust?
Has anybody been directing contributers to Daggerfall Unity?
Hi. Been meaning to reply more often but I've been unable to log in for, like, at least a year, hence this new profile. :'D It's only natural for most artists to move on when a project does not mature or "bear fruit", I think. I don't know what else was uploaded to jet800's server, but my texture pack, including original photos, are at least intact on my end (offline), for what it's worth. Tbh, I don't think my work has the quality to be used for other than really low-res work, and that's after some style / palette editing.
Who knows what will ultimately become of the XL Engine projects? I for one know that life can be demanding when you have to make results & deliver on several projects at once -- hobbies tend to be... down-prioritized, so I totally sympathize with Lucius in that regard. Still; it would have been fine to hear --something-- more often than in the past 2-3 years. I get that there might not be anything to update us on, but if he could have at least just passed by every so often, heck even automated something for less effort, then it could have kept the community more together than it currently is. There has been arguing and much frustration in some other threads.
Is other art made for DaggerXL is still available? It would indeed be nice to see it all backed up to an online repository, though someone needs to do it, should take some time to go through the threads.
