Well I'm still at it, and djbozkosz is creating his brilliant new editor. It's not as dead as you think friend Wink

I guess I'm no modder, but I'm always eager to play other people's creations, and I really love the work you've done with Mafia, Matteo. If you carry on modding, there will always be people interested in what you do. But if you decide not to, it's also understandable, because I can't even imagine how time consuming and hard this hobby is. Anyways, I guess you should do whatever you feel is right (:

P.S. Glad you haven't decided to abandon the Capoletti Mod (:

Agreed. Finish it, mate. I recently got back to modding, mostly not only for the community, but for me as well. I love modding. And I love satisfying the community. So rock on, and I hope you finish the mod!

Not known how many players there are who will download and try his joy in your work. I see that there are still many people who love this great game and all amendments are happy to relive the nostalgia atmosphere newly again. As long as you can enjoy of mod creation, will surely be who would love to play with it. ( like me Smile

The drive to proceed working on a project can come in waves. One moment you want to put your back into it, and the other moment you've either had enough and want to be done with it or just don't believe in your project anymore. There are plenty of times I wondered the exact same thing with the Titanic mod. I doubted if the effort was worth the result, considering Mafia is a decade old game and there are more impressive Crysis Titanic projects running as well.
However, I realized that for me, it was more of an illusion and had mostly to do with my overall mindset at that moment.
I noticed that in a period of lesser times I couldn't care about the mod anymore, due to either stress or other personal things. (Depression or life changing events can influence this a lot) I let it be for that moment. But as soon as I was myself again in good spirits, like after a vacation, I couldn't wait to turn on my PC and load the modding tools as soon as possible. Not caring about the statistics or competitors. I keep that thought with me in case I ever feel negative. It makes me realize that I want to finish the project like a personal achievement with completing an enormous task over such a long period, never giving up and keeping word to the fans who are following.

I say, let it rest for a while. If you are not in the mood on working on your mod, don't even bother to open a modding tool. Motivation is key to creativity. Besides, there are no deadlines anyway. Wink
Maybe your feelings on continuing the project will change through time. No rush. If that ever happens, that is the moment to proceed working. If you totally forget about your mod due to other interests that enter your life, you know there would have been no use in having yourself forced to continue against your own will anyway.

I think you are a great modder with a lot of creativity. If you ever release your mod, I'll definitely gonna play it! Very happy
The registration form isn't helping much getting new people to join MS, which I think is the main reason it seems so silent in here.
You can always create a ModDB page to help promote your mod. There are plenty of people who will see it. Hell, many people that watch the Titanic Mod don't even have Mafia. Sticking out tongue

I stopped modding for a while because of studying, but I always check for new modifications for Mafia. Good to see that "veteran" modders release new mods, and publish them on fan sites just like MS Wink
