This question is for Dobberman. I know you started on VE back in August or so, and I wanted to know how much of you life this MOD has taken up. How many hours on average do you spend on this mod per day? How many hours total has it taken you to make the mod (estimate)? Keep up the good work!! Grin

Hmm, well sometimes I get so urinated (not a censor Wink ) off at it that I just don't do it on some days. That's because of problems, so I dunno, it varies really. I haven't a clue how long altogether! Na na!

I came here because of Virtual Enterprise. I can't wait until it's done.

PS: Is it free? It's probably a stupid question but...
Make it so.

yes it is free, because if it wasn't Dobberman could get sued, and we wouldn't want that now would we

some game mods were changed to full games that can be sold.
(eg. some half life mods), I guess because lots of people downloaded the mods and played them

does anyone think that Star Trek Voyager: Insurrection (a mod) should become a complete game mod that can be sold, or maybe VE

It could be good becuase a source of income would encourage modders to work harder/longer and the mods would be done sooner.


It could be bad in that we would have to pay for it.

Naw, it's impossible (because it's illegal). Only one company has the rights to make a game based on the Star Trek genre and Paramount ain't givin it to anyone else. Not sure who has it though.

well at some websites (including www.ritualistic.com) activision said that you don't need to worry, they are keeping the licenses (or something like that, the point is, that they are keeping the licenses)
