O and Hinkle you never made North and South it was made long before you ever went near it, you added content and a very small amount, it was the other guys outside of the main dev team who added the most.
could you maybe provide some proof that supports your claim that Hinkel (and I) never made NaS? Instead of spreading accusations and false info, which you are doing with your statement, you should think about what you want to tell. Because right now I can only tell that you are lying.
I joined a Regiment that played Secession back in the days (~2011) and I really loved that mod. I loved it that much that I got in touch with Azrooh (Head coder for the mod and one of the main devs) and asked him how I could help improve it.
I started to make buildings and walls so we could implement the same system mmrussia3 (aka. Mount 'n Musket)had. After some time I met Hinkel, and he asked me if we want to make a ACW mod for NW as soon as it releases. So we worked on implementing models from ETW mods and others, for which he had full permissions since Hinkel was in also a Main Dev in most of them
, I was the guy who imported nearly everything, rigged everything, made new stuff, made a lot of animations (some of which are also used by other mods, like my musket reload) and did a lot of code work, while Hinkel was the brain and knew what had to be at the right spot. Regiment names, naming and other decissions, Community work, Videos and Pictures etc. basicaly a good combo, since I knew what I was doing, and so was he.
Ask NW Dev Vincenzo, I annoyed the poor guy every free hour I had to ask stuff about the code, since we also got permission to use source code and installer code that wasn't available for everyone at the time.We never joined a Dev Team
. Infact, and poor Hinkel can proof that, I was the one blocking new members since I had my own workflow and did not need another guy messing with code or brf work. Only small donations or little work was accepted.
I had vacation from school at the time and was working on NaS day and night. And god damnit I will not accept a statement like yours for something Hinkel and I put a lot of our time in!
The Updater (Which was something special for a mod) was also made by me. reverse engineer it and you will see my name everywhere in the Code. Hinkel had also the good idea to put our names into the Credits, which you can click on in the Menu. Both of our names are on the top since version one back in 2012
Try to find a Version which came out before our. Guess what, you won't find anything.
Since I kind of went silent after some years ,beeing busy with life and school (but also disliking what happened to the community, some people will remember the LB crisis where only the Armys had large LBs and everything outside of an Army was pretty much doomed to fail) I had to leave NaS behind. But I never officially left the Dev Team. I was always ready to work again if help was really needed. But NaS was my first big mod I spent a lot of time working on (So did Hinkel!), and I will always love it. It gave me much insight into the whole modding topic and helped me as a proof of work for my modding work over at Arma 3. And as such I find it really saddened that people like you throw random statements into the world.
My message may seems a bit cluttered, but I just came from uni and saw what you wrote here. And I can't accept that.
