Why don't you forget EF 1 and map for EF 2! EF is more advance and will have better MODs on it EF2 will be much better forget EF 1!

Did you not read carefully? Mikey said he was going to mod for EF1 only. Raven has sent good tidings. Besides, EF2 is too cartoon-ish and it's more difficult to mod for considering it's not even out yet. Sure, it's based on Team Arena, but Quake and EF1 weren't fully compatible, so Team Arena and EF2 might not be either. Furthermore, if everybody stopped modding for EF1, it would die, and we don't want that to happen.

Here's a better idea: Register!

Thank you for posting at EFMODs.com. Sorry to inform you we have started mapping a three projects for elite force 1 which will be released over the next year. We have no plans for these projects to go on to the EF 2 platform. Further more we will not start mapping on to EF 2 without a request from Ritual or without a lot of support. Some of our team members are still unsure weather or not they are going to purchase EF 2. So it is clear that we will stick to EF 1 until all or most of our MODs are released.

What do you all think?

I dont think EF2 looks cartoonish. Look at the early pictures of EF1: They were crap looking too. But EF2's graphics, and all the stuff about it is better. Remember its still months from a release! They improve it in that time. And think of what Modders do: Improve the game! They WILL improve EF2! Plus, The Q3A engine can handle bigger maps, so it will be better.

You think those aliens look cartoony? Not Star Trek? Well when on earth in Star Trek have ever seen any creatures like Reavers, Avatars, and Harvesters? Harvesters look stupid! The creatures in EF2 look loads more realistic! And the Vohrosth: that was stupid, something cartoonish like that, only with better graphics! I'm sure EF2's graphics will be improved by then.

Plus, saying that the characters look in no way like the EF1 characters, nobody (correct me if I'm wrong) has released a mod for EF1 that has faces made from scratch replacing the EF1 ones. I challenge somebody out there to recreate the faces made in EF1 from scratch, go on, try it, it'll be soooooooooooooo hard!

Well, there's my view. And I will DEFINATELY be buying EF2.

I'll decide whether to buy EF2 or not when the demo comes out. Probably I will.
