Thank you all for a very warm reception.
Moe, you may be right about the statue comment, considering the scarcity of tools. I cracked up all day, every time I remembered what you said. However, I most humbly can say that the honor will be shared with all those who help me by sharing their knowledge.
Locutus, thanks for the go-ahead. I've got some posts to make...
Now, on to related questions. The FAQ states that the forum may have an attach feature enabled. It appears that this feature is disabled here. Am I correct? If so, then what is the best way to "persist" documents and code? For example, I'd like to document the .big file format in a PDF and post it, as well as eventually share the source code for my tool(s). In addition, I wrote a PDF describing clearly, in a way I haven't seen before here, the build hierarchy for the stock Homeworld 2 game. I would like to share this as well. Since I don't have much web space to speak of, what is the best way to present this information to the appropriate forums?
Secondly, because of when the Mac version of homeworld 2 was released, we Mac users are coming in a bit late in the game. I solicited some help from the tool building community in the Homeworld 2 Advanced Modding Lab List of Tools sticky thread with narry a response. It seems
The ancient tool builders have left long ago, and we who remain can but marvel at their handiwork.Seriously, I know I can track down (some of) the email addresses of the various individuals who created the tools. However, quite frankly they may have just "moved on" and are not even looking at these posts any more, and their email addresses may be dead or just missing. So, since some of you all may be familiar with them and know how to contact them, who amongst the moderators/administrators/staff would be the best to ask about them?
Again, thanks for your welcome!
