And just for the record of anyone looking at this in the future...
%.gone. makes it sound like I was harping on THPS3, which I totally wasn't.
I was asking why specifically level mod was so popular when there is THUGPRO.
AHA, I thought to myself, if there is such a huge buzz around LEVEL MOD from the DEVS then it must be better than THUGPRO. right?
These dudes made something I like (THUGPRO) so I respect their opinions about vgs.
So in asking I am thinking well, it must be the game engine/ mechanics that makes LEVEL MOD so damn special and fun.
But it kinda doesn't make sense that it's such an old engine and lacks modern THPS controls such as SPINE TRANSFER, flatland tricks, the kickflip to indy, stalls, all that cool stuff.
So I decide who better to ask than the discordios aka devs i am assuming since who the fuck else hangs out there???
Wondering what makes it so popular and if it is worth the effort to figure out how to get it running on Mac OS X I ask these dudes and you know what they tell me the reason is that people play LEVEL MOD as opposed to THUGPRO?
Go ahead and guess...
The "clear and concise" ones informed me that people like LEVEL MOD because of it using the THPS3 engine.
yeah, dawg, no shit. that's why I came to ask you dudes what's up with it because like, why? just why? is it that people don't like spine transfers? or they do like the feel of grinding and manuals in THPS3/2 better than 4 and on?
I really can't tell you because instead of getting any kind of "clear and concise" answer, they just went on and on about how they told me already. it's THPS3. end of discussion. that's why ppl like it.....
BUT WHY THO???
and I guess we will never know unless we go and play it ourselves, but if it is populated by that group of minds then I surely will not enjoy the experience.
If I take it from your side....
you are running a mod of THUG2 that is perhaps the coolest Tony Hawk related GAME EVER!
I do not say that lightly, all together and overall this is it. in my eyes, this is the package to appeal to everyone who played the old games and it runs light weight enough on a ton of systems. AND THE ONLINE! GENIUS! And props to the ones who donate and etc to run OPENSPY server.
Anyways, if I was you guys and I'm trying to sell my product and grow my brand, I'm not gonna treat the user/customer/fanbase like they are fucking wasting my time.
That will ensure that nobody returns or inquires or downloads or uses anything.
SO ok if in your eyes you are right, which you aren't, but lets assume you were, you still suck at the people skills of it.
And you are never going to get off the ground like that.
Obviously this isn't your only project and I'm sure it is a team who run their fingers thru multiple pies, I get it. Still no reason to tell me like 5 times that people play LEVEL MOD because of THPS3 and when I say why you say THPS3 you frustrator, why are you frustrating us?
This is obviously way out of hand and you have the freedom to do whatever you want with this post like hide it or delete it etc, you run the site.
My point is that, while you might own and run this shit, it doesn't matter if no one comes here and uses it.
And go take a look at the uploaded parks and see that 90% of this years parks are made by me.
You guys fuckin wasted an awesome opportunity with this mod and I wouldn't even be surprised to find out that you guys don't love it like I do.
Do you come home from work every day and make parks for 6 hours?
Do you dissociate into THUGPRO CAPS?
I bet you don't even know what that means dog...
If anything at all you probably drop in to a few online games do your same stupid combo on EAST LA that you do over and over and over you robots with no souls.
It fucking blows my mind that this amazing shit was found for creating levels with blender and the like and there's what like 12 uploaded parks?
HOW ARE PEOPLE NOT GOING APESHIT OVER THIS AND MAKING PARKS OUT THE ASS?
Probably because nobody is here because everyone who runs this site, game, and servers is a complete cock hole who thinks they are literally upperclassmen who can treat you like trash.
I know every dude I know played THPS games and would go apeshit over this if they knew how easy it was to setup and play etc but the thing that makes it HARD to get into is YOU GUYS!
Thanks for creating something awesome and a sarcastic thanks for being so unbearable that you literally might as well not even have created it.
enjoy my parks
Good try guys, you almost did it
