We know you have a 'when it is done' approach to the modpack, and quite frankly, I appreciate your professionalism and devotion to your creation.

But my question is : do you have any idea of a rough eta for your next update? Or do you have a rough idea of what this next update will consist of?

What I would like to see is some sort of progression scale (since an exact date can never be guaranteed). Something like this would be nice:

Code: Select all

Scandinavia - 100%
Ireland - 60%
Euromir - 42%
France - 25%
Spain - 28%
Current Improvements - 70%
Of course, the percentages would still be a rough estimate based on how much is left to do, but it's better than nothing.

By the time you three are all grown up maybe and then just maybe ProMods may have it done. Untill then you will just have to scratch your itch. ;)

Give ProMods a BREAK and keep your pants on. :)

Well, even with rough figures, it's still hard to estimate how much is completed, especially Current Map Improvements, which is an ongoing effort where more and more improvements get added. Plans pop up, plans get adjusted and some plans are even rejected after a while. This projects is ever changing over time. Also, some things are more quickly solved then we thought, while some things (unfortunately a lot) take longer than expected. That's what it makes so hard to make estimates.

So in brief, we just don't know it either. Don't ask us to answer what we don't know ourselves. The only thing we can say is:

"It will be ready when it's ready"

Best,

Don't ask us for a release date; we don't know either.

Thank you for the honest answer. I wasn't expecting anything else and to be truthful, I guessed that was the answer I would receive. Not, grow up!

Members, eh? :)

You should be careful with the word ETA. In Spain, ETA is a terrorist group that wants the Independence of Basque Country using violence.

Asking "when will XXX be ready" is just like asking "how long is a string..."

The answers to which will always be indefinite. :lol:

That's the funny thing. By accident ScuL used the same line as the NAM team which is just a happily coincidence.
Am I developing at the moment?
