    <a href="http://www.nma-fallout.com/">NMA</A> got a mail from Leonard Boyarsky:
    <br><blockquote>
    <br>As many of you may have already heard, Troika has laid off all of its employees and is closing its doors due to our inability to secure funding for future projects.
    <br>
    <br>We have not yet made the decision as to whether Troika Games as an entity will regroup and pursue future projects or simply cease to exist.
    <br>
    <br>We want to thank all of our fans for their support these past seven years, it has really meant a lot to us that there were people out there who enjoyed our games enough to create fan-sites and follow our progress as a company. But we especially want to thank all of our employees - we had the pleasure of working with the some of the most dedicated, hard working, creative people in the industry, and we really appreciate all that they did for Troika.
    <br>
    <br>Thanks for everything, Tim, Leonard, and Jason
    <br></blockquote>
    <br>I guess that killed our last hopes for the gaming industry.
    <br>
    <br><b>Thank you briosafreak for the info.</B>

    As far as I'm aware, nobody hasn't paid Troika. They've got all the money they're expecting. Even then, they'll still need a contract to do anything with that fancy tech demo. They simply don't have the funds themselves to continue without a contract.

    Speaking of Troika fan-sites, why did NMA get the e-mail? Eh? Eh? What's going on there, eh? Where is the love?

    I'd be in, but I don't have the time, patience nor modding skills to do it. I suppose paying more attention to AMTUT could do the trick, but there's that lacking patience again (don't worry, still love ya DU)

    I don't think just AMTUT would be enough to make a mod, sure it covers the basics but what about the rest.

    Plus you Norwegians suck so so would the mod since it was your idea.

    Judging from my feeble attempts with both editors, I would say that TES appears a whole lot harder to mod with... but who am I to say?
