Guys, at the light of the last events at shatters, I don't have anymore the taste to continue the work in progress models.
What you have to understand is that these models had a specific purpose tied to my plans to help Celestia as a project. As for serious reasons I have to quit the shatters community this purpose has vanished.
As I've been quite disgusted by the decisions and attitude of some people there, I really don't see why I should do any further release.
So for now I will dedicate me to something else; I will do from time to time some monitoring at shatters to see if things change (I doubt), and after a while I will take a final decision on what to do with this works.

No need to say I never imagine being in such situation... :|

What's going on there is such a blow to common sense!

This very well may be Good Doctor, but losing ElChristou's talents is - in my opinion -
a far worse blow... :(

Sigh...
I really wish I could help somehow, but I know that I cannot. :cry:

I, for one, will really miss your exuberance and talents my friend.

Please allow a loyal reader and very modest contributor to react (Boxx' Mars 3D terrain, here and on Motherlode, and working on an update)

ElChristou, you're surely refering to "anti-sarcasm rules"... please stay ! (as a French you know this word : "il y a toujours des ouin-ouin"). I believe all this entropy will decrease, increase again, and decrease, again and again...

ok, my first add-on was also commented a bit severly, last year... but it's not a so big deal and I'm still alive :) because Celestia is worth and needs to be promoted (by us all) and used (by many more)

Salut!
Well, unfortunately I cannot stay because some very serious principles for me have been joyfully trampled down during too much time with a nice apotheoses the last few days. People at shatters continue to bury one's head in the sand while all is falling apart... And proof of somethings is just wrong, is the departure of Don E. who was another of the few very talented members. I'm really wondering all long it will take for some to realize the damage they are doing... (I guess it's probably unintentional but still the results are here...)

Severely is not the word I would use; I guess you were expecting some enthusiastic reactions and so be a bit disappointed with the comments. CM is probably not the perfect place to do one's debut, unless you need a really high level of expertise and comments...

My friend, THAT was my leitmotiv, since the first minute after discovering this soft for first time!
And that was the purpose of my models... Now, again it has been proven that I don't have the power to influence the people who can take decisions, so I have to step back...

For now I won't take any decision concerning the works in progress, I'll see that a bit later.

Anyway, Tx for the interest!

As the Apollo thread is supposed to be closed, I asked Mona for a bit of cleaning...

Christophe,

a great pity, of course... But as far as I am aware, you did not HAVE to quit?
Or did you "bitch" so much at Selden and | or Chris that leaving was "recommended" to you ? ;-)

Fridger


No, no one ask me to leave.
I don't have to leave but I do simply because I have nothing to give to the remaining community...
I will quote someone I know, "I only care for people who care!" :wink:
No one care, so do I, simple and sad... :|

OK, I was just making sure that my info was up-to-date.

Yes, I definitely know that person, too, from whom you quoted that sentence ;-)

Aaaahhhh,

too bad, your models were normally some of the best.

That is really a blow to me, but I can understand you, still a pity.

:cry: :cry:

Hope sometime in the future there could be a change in this matter, but until then I will bite in my desk and then cry loud "Oh noooooooo". :wink:

Wishing you the best as always.

If I may here...
Christophe's models were not "normally some of the best."
Every one is absolutely superb and if the people at Shatters
don't see what they are doing to the community, then I'll be a bit
more absent as well.

Merde....

Thanks for *ALL* of your talented work my friend. Will miss your
creations very much.

Thanks, Brain-Dead

Tx for the kind words guys but in a way or another I guess we will find a solution to keep the models production alive. Nothing right now but eventually later on...
One thing, just like for Bob and the poor Imy user who still post in one of my thread and because I will stop monitoring both shatters and the dev list, if someone is asking @ shatters for info about my stuff, please redirect them to CM. Tx guys!
