The sword and the faith

Greetings fellow current and former modders,
I recently started getting back into modding, tinkering here and there. I know a lot of you probably don't even have SC installed anymore, much less any tools or resources to make mods out of. However Id like to have a Post-Lantis Mod Revival. I'm not delusional however, I'm not expecting a giant uptake in modding activity and people posting projects that get completed and such. Even at Maplantis where we were thriving we didn't have that. :P What I'd like to do is around the holidays have another Mod Night Madness, complete with avatar fads, new mods, and lots of screenshots that lack context making them hilarious. :P

I've mass PM'd everyone I thought I should PM in regards to this, and I'm hoping some of you will post, even if its to say you're not interested. I miss a lot of you guys, and it'd be nice to get everyone together again, if only for one last night of glorious modness. :)

For anyone interested in participating in the event or in making content for the event, be that helping with someone elses project or making one of your own, please post below so I can see if I can even have a hope of making this happen.

PM List:
Symmetry
MC²Voyager7456
WoAHorde
Lord Agamemnon
Syphon
O)FaRTy1billion
l)ark_ssj9kevin
A_of-s_t
Polaris
Sand Wraith
Phobos
MC²Hercanic
ForTheSwarm

If I've forgotten anyone who has the slightest chance of attending, please let me/them know.

Somewhat interested. I still have SCBW and all ready for action.

I'd assist the Mod Night if I'm back home. :)



None.

You can count me in, probably. Do you have an idea as to a date? And is this over Hamachi, or SFR (Does SFR even still exist?)?

Pending on when it is, I might be able to force some of my college buddies to join in as cannon fodder.



If anything cool is ever going on Skype me up under the name "blarghle"

I don't mod but I have attended a few mod nights in the past. Would attend future ones!

SFR exists.

I'm also a lite modder/voice actor - toss me on that PM list.

You have no idea how good it is to see you Pol. Do you have a copy of PokeKraft lying around possibly? Perhaps we'll do another Pol+Ex super mod, or add Toss to DropMod? :P

Sometime during the holidays, nothing firm yet. We'll use SFR.


Also if anyone knows how to contact anyone like Hord, LA, AofST, or Laser_Dude or anyone, do so please!

I think I've seen AofST drop in periodically ... LordAgamemnon is on AIM sometimes.

Nice to see you again too. I looked all over my ancient Starcraft folder, but I couldn't find it. As for a new mod, it'd be a miracle if I could still remember how to use all the modding tools :P
But if you want to add a new race to dropmod, I'd be happy to supply you with graphics/sounds/anything else you might need.

Farty, if you can reach out to them that'd be awesome.

Pol,
I'm having trouble getting GRPs edited on Win7. You up for supplying me with a race worth of toss buildings? I was thinking we do some blue toss on DropMod, give them some cool infantry with any spare toss infantry gfx we can find, and just do blue recolors on them. We can just blue tint any stock GRPs we use. I know there was an alternate zealot grp that was popular with a lot of mods, and Syphon's terminator dragoon, the two of them in blue would fit perfectly. Perhaps a blue uncloaked Dark Templar as a spell caster or heavy infantry unit? I'm already thinking of using Tassadar's HT as a start unit. Shouldn't be too hard, I know you've done stuff like it before, I know you probably already have some blue buildings we can use too. I'll take care of dat and tbl, might need your help with IceCCing a couple things though.

My thinkings like this:
Probe - Gar-bot - Use Ermac's drone/spider mine thing, blue recolor it.
Tassadar HT - Knight - starting unit, low range. Blue recolor on stock gfx. Or is there an alternate HT gfx?
Zealot - Berzerker - little heavier duty, melee. Blue recolor on alternate zealot GRP.
Uncloaked DT - Priest - Heavy melee attack, high shield, low health, spell caster. Thinking of giving Maelstrom, Consume, and Dark Swarm. Might need some new GFX on some of the spells. Toss defiler type of unit, but can attack. Blue recolor stock DT grp.
Dragoon - Eliminator - Lighter, faster hitting. A toss vulture. Blue recolor stock grp.
Terminator GRP - Vindicator - Heavier Goliath type unit. Blue recolor.
Observer - Eye-bot - Same duties, maybe give it a spell. Blue recolor stock grp.
Shuttle - Crescent - Same duties, either blue recolor stock gfx or see if you have anything better for it.
Scout - Landshark - Make ground unit, tint blue, remove speed upgrade for it and make it an artillery unit. Toss tank sort of thing.

..Did you miss my post, or?

The PM list was just to let everyone know who I sent a message out to. Obviously a lot of names up there don't log in anymore, so if anyone has alternate means to contact them, then that'd be awesome, hence the list saying 'Hey get these people over here!'

eternal lurker

If you're still planning on doing this, I am TOTALLY in. Totally.

Well, at least, barring extreme sickness and/or possible hangover.



None.

Hi guys, long time no see. I'd love to join in a mod night if it's still happening.

Of course, I'd need help setting up SFR and stuff again. :P



None.

aka idmontie

I'm a little late, but what's up? I doubt I could attend mod night, I can barely get Starcraft to run on my computer, let alone all the mods I still have on my old hard drive.
