  • I've shipped a mod, so I'd like a mod badge!  I assume there already is one?

  • It was.  You're only the second person to get that one, though I finally remembered to as Mercantile Interest, too, while I was assigning it.

  • Fascinating.  I have seen many "text" mods in the archives (I think of those as just mods, with .exe mod being the category that needs special distinction), so I would have expected modders with such badges all over the place.  Maybe the modders didn't historicaly care about badges, or didn't think to ask.  Is MercantileInterest a "contemporary" recipient, say in the last few years, or did he get his many years ago?

    Or is it a distinction between text and art asset mods?

  • He put his thing up over a year ago.  There's a badge for .exe modders, and one for art modders, and I dunno - I don't have any real system on this, just came up with this and that as asked, and award when I remember to.

  • I don't fault the evolution of a taxonomy.  It does make me think that there's some adventure game answer, where if you combine all 3, you get a super mega modder badge.  Holding the key to saving or destroying the universe, of course.

  • Well, you've certainly got the skillset to do all three if you choose - and to make a badge to go with it.  I'd certainly cooperate.

  • I think the only art asset I currently care about, is whether I can duplicate existing 3d units and thereby add new Chassis types to the game.  But I don't yet know if this requires .exe modding to pull off.  I've asked a Question about it in bugs / patches.

    * Random quote

    The entire character of a base and its inhabitants can be absorbed in a quick trip to the Rec Commons. The sweaty arenas of Fort Legion, the glittering gambling halls of Morgan Bank, the sunny lovers' trysts in Gaia's High Garden, or the somber reading rooms of U.N. Headquarters. Even the feeding bay at the Hive gives stark insight into the sleeping demons of Yang's communal utopia.
    ~Commissioner Pravin Lal 'A Social History of Planet'
