Big Stars - Actros/Arocs SLT [1.39.*|V1.6.4|05.11.2020]

#1 Post by thunderhawk » 12 Aug 2016 13:28

Info: This will continue to be updated! But it will not be developed further!

Code: Select all

Over 4 years have past, since WrittenExample and I joined forces to create this project.

Two freaks tried to create a top of the line modification for the game.
One guy with impressive modeling skills in blender and the other one with extensive knowledge of the "game mechanics/mod creation".
At some point WrittenExample didn't have the time to further work on the mod and he arranged contact to D4LYNCHHD.
While I worked on many little things, this guy was another talented 3d modeler and focused specially on the equipment rack.

Slightly more than 1 year later, with ups and downs, breaks, several restarts, lots of solved problems, but also a lot of fun, we finally released Big Stars.
The development continued and i have added some of the most requested features to the modification.
And now, about 3 more years later, the mod is still updated and a favourite of many players.

Whether you have reported a bug or written a nice comment, I would like to thank everyone who contributed in some way!
Special thanks to WrittenExample, D4LYNCHHD, all involved skinners, and my patrons at patreon.

This sounds a lot like an end of the journey, but don't worry it is just the start of something new.
I will keep Big Stars updated and free of errors&warnings, but the further development will focus on EBS.
Feel free to follow me to Even Bigger Stars (so to say "Big Stars 2")!
