Appreciated. I'll admit, none of my other projects have the sheer ability to burn me out that Branching Evolution has, hence the slow progress. That said, I'm still doing what I can.
I guess I should probably explain this:
My hope for Branching Evolution is to create the Vanilla Flora Editor we never got. I'm striving to stay faithful to what I believe Maxis would have done, had they not decided to abandon the Flora Editor entirely. This is why I trisected the editor - from what I've observed, back in 2006, Spore didn't have such clear divisions between its many editors as it does now, so for example you'd have only Land, Sea, and Air vehicle editors, rather than the further subdivision into Military, Economic, Religious, and Colony variants of each we have now. As such, it only seemed right that the one Flora Editor Spore had back then would be separated into the three Flora Editors Branching Evolution gives us now. Once I achieve this goal, my hope is that other mod developers will take interest in creating mods for Branching Evolution, as if it were part of the base game.
VanillaCold, you are the first to do this. Strange as this may sound...thank you.
