hey, I have been noticing that battlefront files has had a severe drop in file submissions... it used to be that EVERY day, there was a new file (map, mod ect.) and now there is NOTHING! I mean... we have that cerea moonlit melee for like a WEEK! I go on e gametoast alot and..... have anyone on this site even HEARD of askalon? i know you probably have penguin unit, so you know alot of this... but still, I think we need some new stuff. AND, I may be completely wrong and pig headed, cuz there is a possiblity that NO one is submitting files. so it MIGHT just be a lull in map/mod making.. but if not, lets get some more stuff!

The way I see it, the community has this "Screw SWBF Files, send to Gametoast, they rock!" attitude. We have been forsaken by a good deal of the community, who seem to prefer GT over us...

Well.... Yah, thats cool shadow.... and I guess ur right penguin, everybody has left for gametoast.. which IS a cool site........... but it isn't a download site, like where you have ENTIRE pages dedicated to the desscriptio, discussion, and download of cool swbf maps and mods. It i smore of a help and support site, not a file hosting one.... penguin.... me and you should start a swbf files revolution:p lol.... go to gametoast and crusade for the return of battlefront files! anyways........ i hope it comes back soem day

People will complain about the lack of files, but they just refuse to admit that the community just isn't what it was a couple years ago. When swbf2 just came out I could get 2 hex mods a day, but now people have a generally poor opinion of filefront.

Well, I've been arown here for the last 7 years ago (I think?) And I'v been modding for Star Trek Bridge Commander a lot for a long time... And this use to happens whit all the games in time... Interest it's decreasing whit the appereance of new games all the time...

I never modded for SWBF but I'm a big fan of the game and their mods...

But in time the people participation will stop. It's unavoiable... All the games dies whit the time...

But I hope later than soon whit SW and ST games! :nodding:

Its mostly because FF doesn't seem to host the same kind of professional modders that Gametoast does. It's mostly "How do I mod?", "How do I make a map?", "Could you make this for me plz?" which doesn't nurture an enviroment friendly to people who are actually trying to mod and have some idea what they're doing. Why it worked out to be Gametoast and not FF? I honestly don't have a clue. Why do maps come out on Gametoast that don't come out here? To be honest, Gametoast is a smaller community and if you just want to release a beta map, you want a smaller audience so that's where you release it. Modders don't generally release to FF until they've got their final released versions. A lot of times, mods and skins and beta maps are released privately to a small group of people and so even the general public at GT don't get their hands on the map. As for maps like Askalon, I think its just that some people don't think their work is good enough to go here or they're just lazy. ====================== Ok so here's the summary The Filefront boards don't have the same quality of modders that Gametoast does. It's nobodies fault and there's no particular reason for that. Also, too many people just come here without any idea what they're doing and expect everyone else to do the work for them. In terms of maps, FF hasn't declined too bad. Its just that people don't submit maps here until they've completely finished their map and its up to par with a professional level (keeping in mind that FF has a wider audience than Gametoast). It's like submitting the final draft of your essay to your teacher.

Yes trainmaster, I totally agree.... put if that IS the case, modders REALLY need to start making more stuff :uhm: After all, If they REALLY want their map to be known, NOT passed up for a while, get ALOT of people looking at it and donwloading it, FF is the place, but it seems that u were right in saying they don't think it is worthy... or they are just to dang lazy. :uhoh: But i mean... how could it NOT be worhty... just look at Girvana! :lol: But still... I think we should go to gametoast and partner with them, so they submit THEIR files to FF, and then they get ALOT more space for thier forum and stuff. I think that would be the best Idea

Hey, guess what, champ? Responses like that are what drive modders away from this site. "Need" to make more stuff? They're "lazy?" It's not a job for us, bucko, it's a hobby. And guess what? I know I prefer releasing on Gametoast (even though I personally have released on both in the past) in part because people there appreciate the work that goes into making maps (part of this is cause a lot of people on FF are ignorant and greedy, and part of this is simply because it often takes a modder to appreciate good modding).
