Look at that! I kinda forgot about this place for the better part of a year...again! How much has changed, anyway?

In case some people don't know, I'm still The Ethereal, a.k.a. some guy who has never used a modeling program to make cars (doesn't mean I didn't try), only a pencil, a clean sheet of paper, a ruler, and a truckload of photos.

It feels (kinda) good to be back, eh?

Welcome back. As far as how much has changed... If you left around late 2014 -

Omar stopped updating the game March of 2015. Since then, activity in NFMM has all but stagnated. There were clan wars and tournaments for a while afterwards, but in the past month there has been nothing to speak of.

eX is doing an intra-clan tourney right now, but that's it as far as big events go. I haven't been on NFMM in a month or so, but I assume occationally you'll find a group of people on judging from my past experience.

There are a few new guys getting into Editing right now, so if you're interested, you have a few active members involved you can join.

That's all out of me - enjoy your stay.

Is that so? Looks like the only real sign of engine progress lies with one of those custom game projects, huh.
I ended up learning a fair bit of Java in college, but I'm not sure if that's enough to make groundbreaking changes with the engine. I'll need to study the code a bit more to be able to do that.

There's nothing to come back, really.

Yeah, as you can see people are pretty fatalistic about the status of the game (it's only natural if the creator abandoned the game). Although, the past few times I have been on there have been a good little group of players in the rooms I go in. It usually just takes a couple people to 1v1 together for a bit, then others will see them on and join until the room is decently sized. NFM Skyline had pushed the engine pretty far, and Bent Graves is doing so as well right now, but I don't think anyone has experimented with a complete revamp.

Omar was talking about completely changing it. Obviously this was all talk as we can see now. Although, if there is a revamp, it will likely need to be coupled with proper advertising to gain back the userbase NFMM lost in the past 2 years.

Well said demise, the developer needs to inject life into this project if he is really interested to sustain this game.
