As title says!

Feels a bit like a trick has been missed. Any plans to introduce them as a faction on at least skirmish?

-no buildup anims for any of the existing GT buildings
-maybe only half of the necessary buildings for them for a complete faction exist
-not all necessary units for a complete faction exist
-no 3rd side hack/workaround done in TI
-no ai.ini settings done to make a computer controlled 3rd side work
-no client adjustments (ini settings) done for a 3rd side
-no balancing done to make any of the GT assets work for a 3rd faction
-all maps with GT buildings need to be changed, to remove the GT buildings and replace them with something else. There is nothing to replace GT buildings with.
-all maps would need to be edited to include the new house(s), otherwise map triggers and stuff don't work anymore
-no point in starting another faction, before the current ones aren't even finish
-no active Staff members that can create new building/unit graphics
...
-probably a dozen other points/issues which i've missed here


plans to add them yes, but not nearly enough assets and manpower to do so.

Bummer.

It's cool getting to build the sonic fighters and the gunships on mission 11 by capturing the airfields though.

LKO forgot to state the key starting point which was: GT WAS NOT PLANNED TO BE AN SKIRMISH FACTION since it was created up, the purpose of them was to spice up the campaign maps and skirmish maps as tech group providing goodies with overpowered units to give an advantage to capturing player.

Now since the introduction of GT, fans have asked the very same question for years and the team thought to consider reverting the original decision considerations but many of the building models are gone and would need to be remade from scratch and the other points LKO already lined up, thus the concept that GT not being playable is an oversight or something along those lines is misguided guess.

If GT was to be ordinary faction, their buildings would not have been added to maps as tech goodies as obviously playing as GT, those buildings would merit absolutely no use and there would be complaint of their usefulness being again low once the GT units were 'nerfed' for faction role and still being given as tech goodies which leads to more work to make all new tech assets and workload increases.

Most people just saw the 'limited' developing team as omnipotent and thus capable of anything (yet over all the years, very few people joined to help) and thus even requests/demand rose up to add Forgotten/Forsaken and Scrin factions too and even more units for existing factions.
There is no winning here considering this is free product and thus no money was made to pay anyone's bills for the time it took to make all relevant parts.
Quantity doesn't make quality but today's world is consumerist, the more the better, even if its a free creation.

See the FAQ also for it's globotech note

Hopefully this question would not need more new repeat threads xD

Fair enough!  

I guess all the points are very valid. And it's easy to forget it's free!
