You could make a list of the current modders, and each one could post here his MSN, Xfire, ICQ so if a modder has a big project can split the work in two. Or you could just make an IRC channel dedicated to modding and that stuff where you could find the modders and talk to them and so on. As Skykanden said, no more than 4 guys, because someone could go offline for some days, another has not much time, etc.

sky and esp are right, modding teams won't go really far unless they know each others' strengths and weakness's DAMNED well. since there would be alot of conflicts between modding styles. Imagine a gun interface where half of the weapons are cartoony, while the other, realistic. same concept applies to sounds, weapon stats and even the extras. however, im all ears for this idea. it could revolutionize the entire modding community!- pun included.

Keep in mind people, this is only a 2D game. It's not hard to mod. You don't need super close tight-knit teams to make a good mod.

@Espadon: Fixed I hope.

Conversely,  modding is easy enough that you don't need a modding guild. If you can't handle it yourself, then you shouldn't be modding at all.

OI! Jump down my throat and kill me for suggesting...

I've made mods before and done a fairly good job with them so I don't know what your point was for saying.

You mean well, but it's not needed. Go ahead with the people you have, but

Is the reason why I am not "in."

The mod will only be as good as the weakest modder in the team.

No one ever said or asked you to join (no offence intended) The point of the guild is Not because I cant handle making a mod by myself but to save time and to build a good working group of modders who understand how to work with each other.

And your last comment just isn't true as a team people work together and point out flaws to help improve the over all quality of the mod.

Sure, you made so much modding teams right?

If you want to make a good team search a friend of yours and do it so you can work in you house it will be easier, but if your main objective is to learn, just make great mods and keep working.

Espadon's right.

Try it but you will check the truth

I see and understand what you both are saying but that's not the point...


As for friends none of my "real life friends" are good at pixel art.


I think this thread can be locked I give up and if I need help I'll just ask.

I tryed that's all I can say.
