Outdated Chocobo Mounts 1.05

KWEH! Adds rideable Chocobos and more!

  1. Just wanted to apologize for the lack of news over the past month regarding this mod. I'm currently taking summer classes atm to catch up and it's really taking a toll on my free time which goes toward this. Rest assured, you shall be able to ride your fluffy bird mounts once again soon! I will report more progress here when I can! Thank you all for your patience.

    So when are we getting an update, bro?
  4. Should be soon. The latest update broke a few things with the Chocobo techs for the mod, so we're in the process of fixing that.

    The mod is not compatible with the current version. Thats why its in the outdated category. ;)

    There's a fair amount of coding, scripting, and editing that has to be done for a Mod of this size and nature to be fully compatible with 1.0. Also, keep in mind, that the Mods have to be put into new type of file now. On top of that, they need to port it to the Steam Workshop for Starbound so that when it IS finally ready for download, the average person doesn't have to jump through a whole lot of hoops in order to get it to function.

    Please keep in mind folks, that unless the Author blatantly states that they have abandoned the project, then it is STILL BEING WORKED ON. Also, try to recall the gaps between the versions of this mod. As Starbound continued to change and evolve, the amount of work put into this ALSO had to change and evolve. As such, the team/author behind this has probably been modifying things gradually over time with each expansion just to make sure certain things would even function at all anymore.

    If you need proof of such, just check out the Viera race mod, and Pony race mods. They flat out stopped releasing updated versions, mainly because it was extremely hard to redo all of that hard work after the continual updates. Come on, even the original Creative Mode finally wiped their hands of it and allowed others to adopt it, in order for it to survive. It's just that much work.

    TL;DR.... dinner will be ready when it's ready. Stop opening the oven to check on the progress so often and actually let the meal cook. The chef will call y'all when it's time to eat!

    Mod is on hold but not abandoned. We're not machines, we have life and other stuff todo. ;) Neither Drago or I had even the chance to play the release version of Starbound yet. I had some time to work on my MMX techs but got busy with other stuff again. And as long as the MMX mod isn't ported I don't really want to start working on the chocobo tech. MAYBE I'll take a look at the chocobo mount this weekend (I wouldn't set my hopes to high that I actually take a look), since it will most likely require less work than fixing the MMX mod.

    I know its really annoying to see one of your favourite mods not to be updated for a long time but allmost everything I do in my free time is to work on my own game. So I'm coding a lot and you have to understand that my motivation isn't exactly high to spent the rest of my free time with more coding. I really wish I had more time to work on both Starbound mods but it's not in my time budget right now, sorry.

    We also had some plans for the chocobo mod that got delayed to the point where we weren't able to finish the update in time. A new SB update got released, broke the techs again and then we decided to wait until SB is released.

  14. Couldn't have said it better myself. Yeah, we had some huge plans to bring the mod back from inactivity a year ago, but due to some time constraints and Chucklefish breaking the code again with an update, it was honestly better to wait until the game's full release when everything was stable again. It was demotivating to say the least. Though, I should've clarified this change in plans earlier and I apologize for leaving you all in the dark about it.

    Rest assured, the mod isn't dead. We should have it back up and running once we have the time for it since 1.0's officially out. Hang on to your Phoenix Downs, folks.~

    Well, glad to hear that. Ofc it takes some time, but 1 year.. guess the SB updates fucked it up. Can just hope for a release at some point now with the official release :)
