The end of Twallan's mods ?

Post by The_gh0stm4n on Tue 14 Jan 2014, 19:57

Hello all,

In case you haven't heard from it (yet), here's some bad news: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/State+of+the+Mod


Twallan wrote:Sorry folks, I am to be the bearer of bad tidings this day.

As most of you have noticed, the amount of time I have been able to allot to my work on the Sims has been steadily decreasing over the past few months. There are numerous reasons for this : Ranging from changes in my real-life work, increasing disinterest in Sims, and various personal concerns that have been building up over the past couple of years.

I had hoped that my interest would once again be piqued over the holidays, however unfortunately that was not the case.

So rather than continue leading you all on as to when/if I will ever complete any further projects, I have decided to end this grand thought experiment as of now.

With that, I would like to thank you all for making my time in the Sims 3 world a satisfying experience. Shout outs to SimAd, Trif, TheISZ, and all the various contributors who have made this project entertaining.

As a parting gift for any interested modders, here is the full source for all my mods : (...)

Feel free to pick them apart as you see fit, or release them yourselves with any modifications you wish (though you may want to change the names to avoid any confusion).

Thank you, and may the odds be ever in your favor. Smile


It's possible that the work on the mods will be continued by others, but as of now, that seems to be written in the stars.  Wat. 

What do you folks think ?

Ahhh, yes, I PM'ed Lady ElDi about this a while back.

Sad news for a lot of people out there, I think.

According to the latest message here the patch 1.66 is going to be the last one for The Sims 3, so we might see one (last) update of the NRAAS mods too, but it will most likely take much longer until the updates are released, if at all.

Twallan himself has discontinued his work on the mods, so the current work is done by others in the modding community.

As for me, I'm not planning to update my game to 1.66, at least not any time soon. The 1.66 patch doesn't seem to fix anything "important" and it will take a while until new NRAAS mods are released.

Sounds good, for the beginning at least. But here's (still) a word of warning from me: do this at your own risk. Wink  Especially right at the time when new patches are released, it does take a while until mods have been properly tested. So it might be a good idea to wait a little more while with that.

Thanks for the update ! Smile

I guess there is something positive about patch updates that don't fix much: it's (usually) easier for modders to release working updates of their mods then. Razz

Especially when those modders are looking through someone else's work! They got the updates out and working quite quickly.

Hello,

According to this here: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/News+Of+The+Day

All 1.66 mods work for 1.67 too, except ErrorTrap and UntranslatedKey. Also, invalidusername (see above) tested the mods, and they seemingly work for her. Smile


So yes, you should be able to update and use the mods. But still, I personally will wait another while with updating, just to be safer. Razz
