What's the difference between Projects and the Mods subsection? Are Mods releases and Projects WIPs?

Pretty Much. The whole idea is to have releases in their own area for easy locating. Plus it keeps them seperate from all the other discussion that can bury things a few pages back. I think I am going to have to make another section for stuff that just doesnt fit elsewhere.

Wait, so the projects forum is staying? I thought everything was eventually going to be moved.

So did I.  However, looking at the amount of mods left in projects after being cleaned up, I think Projects should become Misc Mods and be moved under the Final Fantasy Mods Category as its clear some mods don't fit in elsewhere (translation patches, etc).

I think keeping it as is is a bit confusing though.

You guys sure like to give yourself some work though.  Hadn't realized you'd move every single past project in there but definitely going to be easier to find stuff in the future! :P

Projects will stay until we are able to sort through all the threads and place them where they belong.

So we're clear, what dictates a release?  When the project is through or once the very first barely working alpha version is uploaded?

How far a project needs to come really depends on what it aims to do and how its creator is going about doing it. Probably best to let individual mod authors decide, or choose on a case-by-case basis.

Note to everyone: The archive is read only. We will slowly be moving project discussions that are still relevant to the proper forums. In the meantime if there is something in there you need to post in please PM me or one of the other staff to move it to its proper location.

As definable by what exactly? What the author determines is beta?

The problem with this is many people do not designate releases as such.

I agree however a project that's just starting out is still a WIP and some projects are never officially released by the autors.

I don't see any way other than a case by case approach where a mod is deemed complete enough to see release or not.

How about we'll just judge based by how buggy it is.  The buggier, the less likely to be put in releases.

That's a good idea. However, I rather see it as "the most complete" instead of "the most buggy".
