I was going to post todays topic with a decision about the original 3 armies and some pics of GDI's tech tree and how it's changing, but someone posted a comment on last weeks topic today that I have to address.

"guys, i feel like being honest right now,
im telling you that, i wont come here anymore, the reason is, you guys are almost dead,
the mod was quite good when it started, and as far as i know, the most fun i had with xenoforce reborn was with one of the first release, i think its the 8.0a or something,
it had all 3 factions, and was just fun.
but now that you guys took 2 of those out, ...its been like a hell,
even if 8.0 was full of bugs and all, WTH, it was still WAAAAAY better than what i've experienced on 9.0c, d or something.
anyway, thanks allot for making xenoforce reborn, i had really good times with it.
i hope you guys can come up with a better version next time. "
Ok, while I am sorry that you feel this way it doesn't change the fact that I think you missed something. We're not dead, we are far from it. Right now I'm working on adding AW (along with some other things) back into the mod, then after that SEED is going back in. These forces were removed for a very real reason, that is they were only there to show people a glimer of what we were going to try to do but people took it as these armies were ready for prime time which they were not. We were getting so much flack from people saying that this stuff was overpowered/unbalanced/didn't work right/buggy that we just took it out until we could get the AI working and get the base design down for EF. Now that thats done we're putting them back in.
I'm sorry you don't find UC compelling, or all the changes to GDI, NOD, Scrin, but I'm not going to say that your right and that we should have kept the other 2 in until we could get back to working on them. Remember this mod is really only being activly worked on by 2 people, Doug and I. We do have our own issues to deal with in real life and can only do so much at once.
Finally, like I said, I've been working on things a lot latly. But it has been on the coding side of things so that there isn't any screen shots to show the progress. If you don't wish to stick around to see what's going to happen that is fine, it's your right. However, progress is going forward and like I said a few weeks ago, I make this mod for myself first and share it with others who I think would enjoy it. Good luck.
