If any of you play Half Life2 then you are most likely familiar with Fakefactory, the modder who makes super high res skins to make HL2 more cinematic. His mod has gained a ton of support over the years, but of course, with that support he also gets trash talked by the HL2 community because the little Jimmies of the internets want release dates and custom model requests.

Well, he's stopped putting up with it: FakeFactory CM5 v0.8 Patch Final Release, Half-Life 2 Downloads, Half-Life 2 FakeFactory Cinematic Mod

Sound familiar?

Wouldn't it be better to continue modding and just close down one's forum?

Yeah, I guess, but in this case it's just him, there isn't a team, so I guess he just decided enough was enough.

If I recall correctly, it wasn't because of release date requests and custom models, it was because people were complaining/criticizing about him OVER-hding models in recent versions, to the point where some of them were unrecognizable. Don't try to turn this into a "you're going to do this to FH2" thing.

Well, FakeFactory has halted his production lines... - Facepunch Studios

I dunno. I've never modded, but I have on occasion worked very hard, without remuneration of any kind, to make things better for people who were not just ungrateful, but demanding of greater efforts, suspicious of my motives and very critical of what I had done to that point. After a little while it was a very easy decision for me to abandon the ingrates and offer my efforts elsewhere - watching the spoiled and greedy complainers sink into chaos and self-loathing was a fringe benefit.

He needs a thicker skin. Not saying, people being lame is ok, but its part of life. Plus its almost always from rivals. Or fans of rivals. Once you understand that, it's far easier to let it slide. :D Hopefully he reconsiders.
