You have good points, Moongaze.  I have been in the community long enough to see that certain mods do indeed get more attention and praise than others.  That is a shame.  And for some reason BWL and COM seem to get less praise and attention than, say, PPG and SHS and G3.  I don't know why but that seems to be the case.  I think all these sites have good and enjoyable mods. 

I like NPC's in particular.  In Callisto's case it is refreshing to me to have a crazy and unpredictable character.  She is cool and like you I can't wait to see her with Nina. 

I still wish any lurkers would voice their support.  Modders work hard I know and they need to know that there hard work is and will be appreciated.

That's because the lack of praise and encouragement is what got me "down" quite a bit. I felt like I was modding for nothing. Still do, kind of...

Yeah, it isn't fair that some mods get all the attention while others are largely ignored. It seems that BWL lives for Tortured Souls, Neverending Journey and Improved Anvil these days, and the rest of the mods go largely ignored...even to the point where Baronius says that new mods, even though big and finished, usually do not "deserve" their own subforum because "people won't react, so one topic in the small mods section is enough". Why not start calling it Vlad & Sikret's Lair instead? :-\

I can't say why CoM doesn't get that much feedback. I know it used to be a much more popular site, with a lot of promising projects hosted. Most of them have moved (Mistress Elysia, Feuille, Miss Sakaki and Zyraen have joined their "friend" K'aeloree at SHS, whilst theacefes moved Auren to G3. I myself relocated to RPGD, then BWL and now MM.), Sillara & nethrin have left the modding scene, and a lot of those projects have disappeared. LuckyOne/Harlequin's (same person) half-drow woman, the male pirate by Marco (I forgot his screenname), evil priestess of Auril with lesbian romance, Tameon's projects, etc... all gone. And then the move, and now we're here. What's left is a collection of good mods, but apparently that's not enough for players. :-\

Other sites like RPGD and Blacksheep have virtually died out.
I wouldn't be surprised if the community shrinks some in the future.

*Runs in, waves arms*

I don't post much, but enjoy NPC/romance mods very much.  I think Callisto and Nina have a lot of potential.

I remember the good ole days of lurking on CoM - yes, it was a much more active site then.  My favorite BG2 site to "hang out" at, in fact. 

Too bad Zaeriina got abandoned.  She was . . . perfect.  :-[

Calli is one of my favorite npcs in BG2 next to Miriam.

This and other mods of mine that are in progress are on hold for a while and maybe more. The excuse would be so funny if it wasn't so pathetic.

This mod update will happen but not in the way I envisioned it. Go read the DOA thread in Dark Horizons for more info. I will combine DoS, Nina and The Undying into one big mod as I had intended to do so back when I first started this community, but it will have some things missing from it. I will combine the three, redo the banters between Calli and Nina and release it as is.

There is one last dialog that I am writing right now that is between Nina and Calli. It takes place in [spoiler]ToB, Callisto makes an appearance one last time. Its a bittersweet parting dialog between them. Major revelations as well.[/spoiler]

I really look foreward to the release of the undying - that is next release. I really like playing with Ninafer she really has some good (and funny) banters. Adding Callisto would only be better.

I would wish a new release could be within hours so that I might add this promising mod to my game. Yay for your good NPC's

Cheers

Once I get everything done with Dark Horizons, I really would like to add in the content that I cut out in this mod so it would meet my first vision of what this mod is about. There's a major encounter and Ninafer had a bigger quest in my original vision, but this was cut out because of lost data from hard drives.

Version 2 of the future:

A new quest begins. People from your past will show up, people you believed are dead. Find out who is resurrecting them.

The Ninafer and Solaufein you meet at the new inn this mod brings you, find out who they really are.

Ninafer gets a major quest, help her out if you wish.
