Default Donate Here to Help Purchase the Exporter needed to Mod SH5

I'm waiting to hear back from Neal and a few others here to present some info.
Please stand by as it's very important news!




Add in from a later post for easier reading.

OK. Time to get real.
Go Fund Me has been dropped.

They take $4.25 of every $50.00 donated!
Please use the PayPal link or contact me for other options.

If We do not raise the needed funds and it all goes to crap?
I'll see that every dime goes to SubSim!!

Neal would be the first one to let you know if I tried to take off with any cash.

It's not for me and I can not make a single penny. It's for you Guys.
The Modders to really show what can be done.
The Players to finally get in Types that SH5 is missing.

Here is the last and best chance to show What WE can do!

OK.
I'm impatient to give you the news.

After some exchanges with Brian at RAD Games I have an answer that is beyond my hopes.

They have agreed to sell the Exporter needed to Mod SH5!
There are conditions and a License agreement to do but We have one thing to over come first.

We need to pay a discounted rate of $8000 for it all.
I'm in for $1000 so that leaves $7000 to come up with.

We have the chance to take SH5 to levels only dreamed of at this time.
Playable Units wished for.
Proper Schnorkels.
And so much more!

A whole new opportunity for SH5 modding is looking us right in the eye!


If I go the whole $8000 myself?
You won't like it.
LOL!!

$7000 is a lot to pony up.
There's been times people said
"IF they sell I'm in"

Here's our chance!!
Brian went to bat for us as best he could.
A few years ago we got turned down flat even trying to buy the whole version at over $12,000!

I know! I tried working a deal with RAD back then.
I've kept in the back ground since those days.
Waiting for the right time to approach RAD.

Being it is an old version with a lot of updates since?
I took the chance to ask Brian if this whole deal would fly.

He was willing to help but told me it would probably be a no go.
I do think he was as surprised as I am with the Boards outcome.

Have to say I kind of agree with you Mate.
But if one is going to dream? May as well dream big!


I see so many people post can we have this or that? Do this or that?
And the answer is always the same. We don't have the proper tools.
Several years ago? We couldn't even buy this at full price.
Believe me I know! I tried asking way back then.
I've lot's of E-mail exchanges from RAD over issues with SH5 and early tools created for SH5.
Not sure how it happened but they contacted me about that stuff.


I took a chance and contacted them this time around fully expecting another "No. Go away! Your bothering me Kid!"
Maybe it's since I asked for the original version used for SH5 they felt it's ok to make some money off a dead version.
So they gave a 30% or better discount with some special license agreements should this all happen.

One of the main stipulations is I Can not make any money off this!!
I'm fine with that. I've never made a dime for any Mod work here at Subsim and never plan to.

Is it crazy to go $8000 for the tools? Maybe. Maybe not.
My Air Gun collection is going past that point at a very fast rate!


SH5 has a huge potential to be modded with the PROPER TOOLS.
We can't build a house with a toothpick.

And what if Ubi takes notice and does something on their own?

What does an exporter actually do? How can we believe that this exporter can do great things? Are we being told that the exporter product from RAD games will work with SH5, at what guarantee?
