So I had noticed that all of the download links for NTA are broken and only the Russian upload of SPM is still intact. Should I begin rioting in the streets or am I doing something wrong?

I don't think that rioting would be a good idea. Smiley The author have decided to remove the links for his whatever reasons.

The NTA mod thread now seems to have disappeared now, too.  Sad [edit - it's still there, just no longer sticky and as reported the links are dead]

OK so rioting is out, then.

Didn't the NTA mod and the mission packs have multiple authors?

If that is so - and if there are no other plans to restore availability of the NTA mod - would any of the authors still around here  - Kyth, Frinik and Rends are names I recall, from missions or core components I can't recall -  who would consent to the NTA mod being uploaded to the downloads section at CombatAce? In the interests of the SF community, who need not be 'punished' over this.

Find out where that author has found a new home perhaps and visit him there if that is at all possible.

I don't know if he and his work will resurface.

Lockie may not have been the only author but I'd say he had a pivotal role in NTA and it's admirable update schedule.

So, no rioting in the streets then? I had to format my computer in a long and tedious quest to find the root of my GPU problems when in reality it was the GPU itself having replaced it recently I wanted to try Steel Fury again but understandably I am addicted to the mods for it. I will wait to see if anything resurfaces or if we can reupload it elsewhere temporarily.

That's good news, hopefully it will come to pass! This is all very regretable. Maybe fences will be mended; but one way or another I hope Lockie hasn't given up on Steel Fury; his talents, helpfulness and enthusiasm would be sorely missed, as would the NTA mod.

It really would be a shame. But it's completely understandable, given the situation in his homeland. Here's to hoping we haven't seen the last of him. Sad

As Frinik has already reported, there's good news - 'the King is dead, long live the King' or to be precise, the NTAmod is dead, long live the STA mod!'

As Frinik has said reported, the NTA Mission Packs were made only by Lockie, who got the ok from each mission maker, so uploading would be inappropriate.

However, Lockie, I now know moved to another board, where the team there plans to make a new mod, 'Steel Tank Addon' (on the base NTA) with new GMPs (Game Mission Packs):

http://stasf2008.ephpbb.com/

So it seems that the continued development of what was the NTA mod is safe and in good hands.

33Lima please don't use expression like " ...As Frinik has said,..." because I didn't say it.I said in my post that I have been requested to post the message.The words in it are Lockie's not mine...
