Convo Pack: source files

Postby noMatt » Mon Jul 08, 2013 7:28 am

I have a fewquestions about the convo pack:

Is there someone who still has the source files?
Is he still active here?
Is there a chance of a source release?


I was just wondering about that because the convopack is really well done and id wanted to have a look how this was made ;)
i promise if i get the source files, i wont do anything the creator dont want me to do

The map's source files were never, nor will they ever, released.

I don't know who made all the maps. I just know that the authors of the maps do not want them or their assets used again.

The Convo Pack was before my time here, I only got here three years ago.

Correct, Maveritchell and myself (respective project leaders) were asked not to release the source files for community-made maps by their original authors. If you want the source files to those maps you'll have to ask them individually.

It may say in the readme of the actual mod, but I'm unsure.

Aside from Teancum and me, none of the authors of maps in the Conversion Pack are active anymore. Era's around sometimes, and he did Methlyn, but that's it.

As far as using the Conversion Pack as an example, I wouldn't recommend it. It's a great mod with a ton of content, but it had an incredibly protracted development cycle with a lot of patchwork fixes. It's really sloppy in a lot of places and is really feature-bloated. It's a project that built on its own inertia until it got out-of-control, which Tean learned early and I learned late. It stumbled its way into being successful by a combination of a legacy with the community (Tean had built up popularity for the mod for a couple years already) and sheer volume of content. If you really want to learn something, you can learn the most from this mod by simply reading the forum for the mod - what it's done best has been community management.

I thought Tean's Secret Assets contained sources for a few of them?

It's been so long (two years) since I looked through those assets that I can't remember. That one special Naboo map is in those assets though, I remember that being in the Convo Pack.
