As much as I'd like to see them in the game the process is too time consuming for me personally and takes away from other things I could be doing

If there is news that CMD will get the modding tools that we were told would get released some years back Id be happy to get back to modding. Until then I'm helping Mad Mike with some level props and getting back to other cars and projects that I've started that aren't Carmageddon related.

yeah, that's fair=) i do understand you perfectly. but i hope eagle mk1 will be released in nearest future?

The art's still sick to look at. You got a ton of talent. Do whatever makes you happy, dude. :)

Balls.

Juts to let you know that I try out all new mod vehicles and your mods are really great, I was hoping for Bare bones hotrod to be in CR:] also cannobal looks sick.

Well lets see what future will bring, I really hope that carma modding will be still resurrected:]

Thanks a lot :)

I'm not going anywhere, just taking a bit of a break from doing in-game stuff for a bit.

I hope we get some news about CMD, even if they are bad news I'd take anything at this point just to know where I stand.

I fully encourage your attitude towards this game. You have done so much to please my eyes and my classic carmageddon car remake lust.
I won't deny, I was counting the days until you quit and I secretly hoped you are crazy and won't ever quit, even though it was clear that it was about time you do so, in the light that Stainless has completely lost almost every drop of respect and credibility that they have gained in the past.
I wish you the best of luck and I wish you to be hired and become a top dog 3d artist for some triple A studio that will pay you huge sums and treasure your talent!

As for Stainless.... Congratulations, you... yoouuu... "extremely smart" chaps! Your modding policy and your interest in this community has costed you the patience of maybe one of the most patient and talented 3d artists that I've seen in a long while, that was freely and single handedly making extremely high quality car mods for your unpopular game, that could potentially get a few more copies of your game sold and also keep this game alive a bit more.
You did exactly jack shit to support modding, something that could have repaired and given a new life to your jumbled mess of a game.
If this forum wouldn't have been your property to which I am allowed to post, I would have insulted you big time...
Frankly, I threatened many times that I will leave this place but right about now, I feel really fucking livid seeing your "don't give a fuck" attitude to everything lately.
As bad as it sounds from a guy that waited so much and hoped so much for a new carmageddon game, I really think Stainless is dead and deserves it in full based on the way they have handled this and are still doing so.

I don't understand why they are silent about the future of carma, but apart from that you can't be really angry at them. I mean this is a huge business and they cannot just go and do what they or we want. Whole development wasn't very fortunate, but I think Stainless still deserves mad respect for buying back the rights to this franchise and make a game that most people of the carma community wanted, while it may not be most commercially clever option. They could also name the game carmageddon, take unreal engine and just made simple arcade game with dumbed down physics like in GTA 5.

Thanks RoRo :) I'll do my best to finish off the remaining cars

The MK1 is still very likely to be a mod, though like I mention depending on whether we get any news about the game it may be my last mod for CMD.

I can't agree with this part of your post.
Firstly, why should Stainless deserve mad respect for buying back the rights to a franchise, when it's obvious that the whole point of them doing this in the first place, was to make profit for themselves.
I don't understand why would this qualify for respect let alone MAD respect...
They bought it because they saw an opportunity to develop a game which they thought it might sell well and start a franchise and get rich with it.
The fact that they didn't manage to reboot this franchise because the game was made like shit and it didn't sell well, is their own problem not ours.
You have to realize that Stainless is not a bunch of Carmageddon fans that just wanted to make this game out of the goodness of their hearts.
They are a business and businesses are cold and dead inside with a fake warm smile on the outside.
As for making the game that the carma community wanted, the reality shows that they did not manage to achieve that.
I don't know what their intentions really were, but making the carmageddon game that the community wanted is clearly not what they achieved.
In my opinion, they didn't have a clear direction of what this next carmageddon game was supposed to be.
It was a remake but not a remake and it was for old fans but it was for new fans too...
They simply didn't make up their minds about what was their target demographic so they went all over the place with it and they basically remade Carmageddon 1 with a cartoony art direction and 2005 graphics and after many delays they released it in a very laggy and buggy state in the year 2015.
When they got shat on by the whole gaming press and by every single kid out there that compared it with gta 5 and with wreckfest and said it had shitty graphics and bad animations, they tried to save their asses by reducing the damage physics model in order to run better, they added a few extra cars and renamed it to max damage, releasing it on the consoles for maximum cash...
Sadly, the console version didn't get them enough money either.
So they got even more desperate and they re-released reincarnation on pc with the max damage name, in hopes that this time the extra car and the "optimizations" would help it get better grades when it would get reviewed again.
Sadly, this flopped too and as one last final desperate attempt at getting some cash, they started developing that ios/android piece of shit called Carmageddon Crashers, which is an all around clusterfuck that nobody likes again.

And this brings us to today.
They most likely have their whole world spinning around their heads, and I bet they are still desperately trying to do something with Carmageddon Crashes which is buggy, laggy and boring as fuck.

I don't hate them and I don't take pleasure in recalling this whole fucked up recent history but then again I also can't say I will cry if they die.
They just did bad decision after bad decision after bad decision and most of these mistakes were so blatant that I could notice them as they happened even before they had financial impact on them, and somehow they couldn't see them.
My prediction is they will drown in debt by the end of this year or by the next summer and they will close up shop or reduce their staff to 3-4 people max.

So the reason why they don't post here anymore is because they know they will get asked questions that can't be answered without first admitting that they fucked up royally and burnt all those kickstarter money + extra on failures.
Back when this game was being developed, all devs and Nobby were all over this fucking place like ants.
You couldn't make a single post without them seeing it and commenting it and now they are just gone, vanished.
I bet Nobby doesn't even want to hear about the Carmageddon name ever again, after this massive flop.

I can't really believe some people here are naive enough to still wait for linux ports of this monstrosity or for that drm free version or for carmodgeddon updates.
You all need to get it through your heads that this was it. They are not going to deliver the remaining toys for the backers, not updates for this game nor any more ports.
This was it, kaput!

IF they really did it for the money, they would have changed the handling....

I think they were more at home with that type of handling, especially since the game's engine is the old one that got it's render rewritten.
It could very well be said that they knew how to do this type of handling and they stuck with it.
