To be honest, I think the chances that a request gets noticed AND fulfilled are low. But still, so long as the request section is here, it should be used. Just imagine it as some sort of pin board, where people can write down what they would like to see in the game. And once the right people notice a certain request and have the time and skills, they can go for it. Some requests may be unnoticed, but they don't disappear.

Thats the issue, time. People years ago would be happy to do requests they weren't even personally interested in doing, they'd do it just because they enjoyed modeling and wanted to contribute to the community.

As we all get older I think many of them just find rarely  time to make a fully detailed model, which can be worked on for months at a time.

That's fair. Thanks for the honest explanation.

No problem. For real though, you came sadly very late to the scene, as I said people really did do requests on characters they weren't even particularly interested in just because they ENJOYED filling requests and improving their modeling skills, depending on the person of course. On the other hand, to give you some perspective on the modding scene TODAY? I've offered money recently to a few people who were happy to accept it in exchange for a commissioned model... but they had to turn it down due to time constraints despite some of them being heavily interested and being paid for it to boot (not cheap either, I was prepared to offer like some $150+ for a model and some weapons).

Besides that there are VERY few modelers left at ALL, and pretty much none of them take requests or are heavily against ports, which is a fair stance to have from a moral and legal standpoint due to it taking credit away from the actual models made from scratch: "Hey, that's a great looking Luke model you made, especially for your first model, unfortunately I just ported Luke from the new EA Battlefront so expect people to download that one instead. :)"

Jeff has single-handedly made porting more... well-liked and acceptable (this is my perception of it at least, he's arguably the most famous non-mod on JKHub today) on JKHub, but there are still people heavily against it. Did you know you can get sued for using ported content in a mod? This site could get potentially shut down if it's discovered for hosting "ported content", thankfully companies won't ever reasonably go for a cease and desist unless it's a straight up remake by fans like the KOTOR remake or that 3D Chrono Trigger remake that got shut down.

Mods are usually safe territory but still very risky.

Sorry for my rant, I just feel this needed an explanation, since newer people dunno why ports are hated so much (I used to be one of those people), hope this helps anyone reading.

Anyway, all your recent stuff is looking great, @Jeff, can't wait to see the next batch!

Thanks man. You've always had my respect as your honest and can take shit from people (most can't do that, especially today). I may have to post something soon.

Well said. I've gotten so tired? (that's not quite the word but...) Of looking for models and maps that don't exist or have been deleted. I used to be a member of that one jk map website in like 2008,  (I forgot what it's called- the one Mr. Wonko partially duplicated) and I was making maps back then. But I'm back now and plan to get back into it, hard. I'm excited but it's like a full time job. You are right. But I greatly enjoy it. Thanks Jeff for all the hard work and for re-inspiring me!

FYI still not good at modeling and I'm just now rediscovering gtkradiant. Wish me luck!
