Re: [0.9.1a] Blackrock Drive Yards v0.9.5a (10.06.2019) - Hotfix released

Hey all. I've had to stop working on this for a while for personal, work and health reasons. :(

Sorry if this is disappointing news, it is to me as well. But that's life.

It warms to read your kind words and see that people miss the mod. I miss it too in a way, well, not the mod itself but just the feeling of being able to have fun working on it unburdened. I just wanna make some cool spaceships, weapons and sound effects, as I always have. In a way that's why BRDY became such an enduring mod, it was always just easier for me to channel some of that tinkering energy into it rather than start over with what I'd learned and make something with less constraints, even though I have wanted to do that at points.

But I think I've reached a tipping point now where all the old content's flaws bothers me to an extent that I can't just barrel on past it, and well... things required a lot more work than I anticipated. And that's just the piece of the puzzle that has to do with the mod itself. When you add external factors it just became impossible for me to keep going right now.

So I'll be back later.

Take your time, that's all.

Hey Cycerin,

...Look after yourself! Can't say I'm not sad to see BRDY (I pronounce that Brody in my head) go on hiatus but look after yourself. Burnout is tough, best to avoid it at all costs. I've been playing BRDY nearly as long as it's inception and its a staple amongst my used mods; I think it's legacy extends beyond the best of the mods into the very essence of StarSector itself. I really do hope BRDY exists for StarSector come v1.0 but I would much rather you use what energy you have into maintaining your personal and professional life in some seriously trying times. You've worked on BRDY much longer than some devs work on professional games and for that... I'm grateful. Thanks for the awesome grey, green and orange spaceships that I've spent more time playing with than some AAA space games.

Take care!

Ah damn. I've been so busy I hadn't even realized this had happened. Take as long a break as you need, Cyc.

Stay safe, stay happy, and take care of your mental health.

I hope conditions improve, but don't let working on this mod be a source of stress for you - your work's fantastic, and the satisfaction of having enjoyed it in the past is good nuff.

G'luck out there <3

Best of luck in all your endeavors, be they here or anywhere else. Taking a break is a worthy endeavor itself and one that is often overlooked. Be well.

I made a forum account just to say I love Blackrock and it has been my favorite faction mod since I discovered starsector. I've loved the many hours I spent piloting and playing with the ships and look forward to being able to do so again one day.

Thanks for a wonderful mod, wishing you the best of luck in everything you've got going on. Take care!

Still my favorite mod, from the beautiful sprites, the excellent sound effects and music, the innovative and fun ship systems - everything is on such a high level of quality it's insane that this is a free mod, so thank you very much for all your efforts and I hope you will find the time and passion for modding again!

Cycerin, I'm sorry to hear about this.  BRDY was my favorite mod of all time, and even if I never did get to fight them fellows on page 72, I still got my money's worth from that donation that one time.  Thanks for creating several full-priced mainstream triple-A games' worth of content for us, for free.  I said it before, BRDY was the Zero Hour to vanilla's Generals, the Shivering Isles to vanilla's Oblivion, and you handed it out like it was coupons.

I don't mind that BRDY won't be updated in a long while. Everybody needs to walk away from things every now and again. We all have internal and external struggles. If you need to take a break, then do so. Here's to hoping it will be worked on at some point in the future, but take all the time you need.

The biggest plot twist here will be that once you decide to update this mod Alex will release the next version of SS

Blackrock holds the distinguished honor of being one of the only mods I will ALWAYS grab, even if I have to risk the game crashing by jerry-rigging it or making other mods incompatible just to have it, it's just that good, and it will ALWAYS have the top place in my mods folder, and in my heart!

Another comment hopping on the "I love you and BDY" wagon. Whenever you update this, I'll be playing it again. One of the best mods of any game, and absolutely even deserves to be integrated into the base-game IMO.

e: just realized I made a comment to this effect a few months ago... seriously, I'll keep checking this post for updates for years to come.
