Friends! Martians! Spacemen! Lend me your ears! Or, for my Uplift friends swimming through cyberpsace, your statocysts will do just as well.
Now, all you well-wishers listenin' in, it's getting to that time of year when those of us up here on the ol' Coaggie are all starting to check out the latest fashions from the Skinaesthesia catalogue and get all starry-eyed over the latest things in making ourselves just that much prettier and pissing off the Jovians just that little bit more.
Being the Space Gypoes that we are, none of us buy anything. Most of our credits, what few we get, go to paying to keep this old flying blood clot in orbit. All the same, we've got a nanovat and a few engineers up here, so we have all the tech to deploy our own prepackaged biomod setup that we get off the mesh.
Still, I hate to say it, but what we've got ain't much. There's not much of a thriving open source community for those of us who have the Planetary Consortium breathing down our necks. PC brown shirts tend to shut down anyone putting up the good stuff under grounds of "violating copyright". Feh. Most of the fun stuff tends to come from Titan anyway, these days...
Anyway, before I start cryin' tears into my beer, let's hear some cheer! As someone whose very own tail was made using open source mods, I put the question out to you, the people: What's your experience with Open Source modding? Good? Bad? Ugly? Did you get what you paid for? And, hey, while we're at it, open up the floor to any other thoughts on mods. How far will you go with your morph?
