To follow up on the suggestions for mods that I've seen here recently, I'd
like to add my thoughts to the discussion. Personally I am not a big fan of
mods, for the simple reason that a mod for me is the same as destroying a
complete picture that the audio, music and game engine all form together.
When I made my sounds I made them for one particular purpose, and if they
are taken out of context or replaced by something else it'd break the
complete picture in my opinion. This is why I encrypt and package my sounds
in the dat file.
I know that a lot of people have quite differing views on this, that a mod
is merely a creative outlet for imaginative gamers and in a sense I agree
with that, but as the game's audio designer it would make me feel as though
my work has been taken apart and twisted in a way.
However, my opinion is merely one of many and I'd love to continue this
discussion, as we may be able to come up with some sort of compromise.
