NOTE: THIS MOD REQUIRES THE FLEETOPS PATCH 1.2.5!!

Improved upon previous versions of this weapon, using the patch project 1.2.5 "replaceweapon" feature. Hope no one is offended, but I needed this to work in a bad way!

No pictures?? Lots of new items being added have a very short description and no pictures now :sad:

Most simply-.ODF mods --this and the fusion cube separator, for instance-- I don't see why you'd need a pic when it's pretty self-explanatory.


But while we're on the topic, my days of taking pics for other people are over. Either the modder included the pics or no pics go up. Sorry for the inconvenience. If that means twelve downloads instead of two thousand, then we all lose. It's something the modding communty has repeatedly stated to be an expectation before they'll trouble themselves to download. I can't understand why mods get submitted without them when the pics alone mean such a huge increase in traffic. Maybe not in downloads, but more people consider downloading when there's something to look at. Proven FileFront fact.

yes and about the short description it is cause of the new upload system you can give your own description for files and the lazy staff will just use that insted of reviewing the mod. :mad:


starfleetkid I am in no way saying that is what you did but I have seen it many times ;-)

I resent the term "lazy staff". We do what we can with what we're given. And we do this in a volunteer capacity. Criticize all you want, but keep in mind that I don't have to do anything. I am choosing to do this. I can choose not to if I don't feel appreciated.

Very good mod.


Eluvator. Considering your a member of filefront staff you should know better concerning the site rules. That was an unecessary and underhanded comment. I truely wish I was a senior admin here as you would be kicked off the site. On the sites I've visited I've never once seen you doing any work.


As for there being no images. With this new upload system isn't it the responsibility of the uploader to do their own image uploading??
#6 theStarfleetKid 2008-05-20 05:43
Precisely, Major Payne. It was always the responsibility of the modder to include screenshots or pics with their mod. Before we'd add them in after the fact since they were typically either part of the .ZIP or the e-mail, or sent separately after the upload.


The file-upload system actually takes a great deal of what we used to have to do and makes it so that the formatting is done BEFORE we even see the file is available. That means all staff really has to do anymore is download the mod, make sure everything's there, write a better review if requested or if time allows, and press a few buttons to make it available to the world.


And as I've said before countless times, I prefer to upload first and handle problems later, if any arise. I keep a close eye on the comments and forums after uploading something. If there's a need to be addressed, it's usually dealt with before a couple days have passed. I humbly believe that we have one of the best systems going-- not just on FileFront, but anywhere. And I take a rather fierce pride at my part within that system, keeping things going. As always, your mileage may vary.

Its an unwanted and unwelcome comment, but not something I am going to ban him for.


And yes, its the responsibility of the uploader to do their own images. It always has been, and the submission instructions have always stated that fairly clearly. I think the proportion of files with screenshots is about the same as it always has been, its just that we get a lot more files now its easier for people to upload them.

I realize now, that if I decide to post a future mod, I will be sure to take some screenshots, however... If you can read, I believe that my mod was pretty self explanitory, and you certainly cannot see functionality of a separation/integration mod like this. Having looked at previous attempts at a MVAM for Promethius, one would think that they would be a pretty descent mod, when in actuallity, all the ones that I tried failed to even come close to the real thing.


I realize that in my next attempt I would change the "landing" positions of the 3 ships when separated, but I was rather excited to finally have a working MVAM after so many years. I honestly questioned whether or not I should even post the mod, considering what little it does. I am working on a larger mod that I promise to include screenshots, and a much better description. It is already a rather large description and I haven't finished the mod yet.


Once again, I am sorry for rocking the boat here....

Good to see people using the MVAM coding in mods, nice work :-)


As for the lack of screenshots, I agree with both StarfleetKid and Necromancer, they are vital in promoting mods to the community, but you can't really show ODF mods in screenshots, and you don't really need them with ODF mods as they are self-explanatory.


Nice work on the mod Necromancer, keep it up :-)
