@liquid141:
i think it would be a waste of time trying to make dmods for just the 10 of us whos active, with a release like steam / gog , you get fresh blood , new audience , new requests , new ideas.

I assume when you say "just the 10 of us whos active" that you are exaggerating for colorful effect, right?

Go to https://www.dinknetwork.com/files/category_dmod/sort_date-desc/ and take a look at how many downloads there have been for the most recent dmods. It's a big world out there and while Dink is not truly popular, there clearly IS an (admittedly tiny on a global scale) audience that is downloading dmods. While the heyday of dmods has passed us by, I do not agree with statements like "the time for dmods is over in this place".

Now, I do not OPPOSE the efforts to move Dink to another platform and/or to modernize it. I just think that such efforts will not work out and are therefore not worth the time to pursue them. But, go ahead and prove me wrong. If Dink is "released on Steam" or some other platform or if Dink's combat system is improved, or somehow Dink supports 3D (better than the current isometric projection method of simulating 3D) then I will applaud as loudly as any of us here on the DN, especially if (somehow) the old dmods and resources continue to be supported.
