    Now, I have no friends who play this game. So this mod is pointless for me, but damn nice to see someone putting fourth the effort and I am sure UWE will do their best for modding support to the extent they can.

    They probably don't have firm answers to any of that yet, O99. :) The work is still very early on.

    To Sunrunner and company: When you consider that the game was not originally built with mod support in mind--like, at all--this is very impressive. Keep in mind, I'm a middle-aged loser who has been doing this stuff for the last twenty years or so, and I am not easy to impress. Two thumbs way, way up!

    I'm hoping they mod in a Reaper Leviathan attractor... Think a thumper that calls the worms in Dune. If they add that in, then I'll be happy to play with anyone who wants... I, er, um, promise I won't use the Reaper Leviathan attractor. :)

    Charging for the mod would be violating copyright laws

    Probably a question for the creator @Sunrunner.

    But if I were to guess, not for a very long time. At least not in a stable condition.

    Because they're undertaking quite a difficult task.
    I've been skulking around here for almost four years.

    Yet I still have no idea what's going on.

    You are making requests for multiplayer in a thread where the developers have repeatedly said it isn't happening. And you are complaining because I point you to their existing game with multiplayer?!?

    ROTFLMAO

    Someone is ATTEMPTING to make a Multiplayer Mod.
    No guarantees it will actually work reliably when they finally get around to letting others try it.

    That's something you'd have to ask him privately, and keep in mind, YOU CANNOT BE PAYING FOR THE MOD. You must basically be supporting him with the full knowledge that you're GIVING him money because you appreciate his FREE, NOT-FOR-PROFIT work. And I'm not sure if even that is kosher... like it's always ok to give people money, but when you give them money to support their work that must, by law, not be for profit, it creates all sorts of headache.

    TL;DR you can't be paying for a free mod to a commercial game, you'll get the author in trouble. You can support the author themselves, but it must be no-strings-attached supporting them. Like cash money, yo, I like your work, have a coffee (or 12-pack if you're feeling generous) on me. You can't then turn around and say "I'm paying you money, where's the work!". No. Strings. Attached.

    At least that's my understanding. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    This is *so awesome*. You are a modding god.

    Question: Have you or your team had the chance to look at the 'hard problems' the devs have mentioned? Creature behavior and so-forth? If so, getting any ideas on how to solve?

    We currently have someone deep in multiplayer chunk persistence and I'm currently working on the AI behavior. Generally we know how we want to approach most of these areas but the devil is in the details. You can check out our progress on trello.
