Hey guys. I thought about it for a bit the other day, and it's been quite some time now, since I've sold this pack. How would those that own this pack feel about me releasing it for free to the Community at large here? If too many people object; I'll nix the idea. But I think the shelf-life of the Pack has been reached, and rather than see it die; I'd like others to get some use out of it.

It comes packed in an auto-installer. Let me know.

Well; I haven't heard one thing or the other, so I'm going to assume it's alright then.

Let me put it another way; is there any interest in this pack going up, as it's just a bunch of crates, barriers, etc.? If there's no interest, then there's no need to bother with it.

I think it's a great looking pack and i'm sure many people could use it, including me.....

Did a lot of people buy this pack?

Is it a couple years old?

Maybe, give it another week and if no one objects, release it for free.

It's around 7 years old or so; made a few hundred off of it, more than I thought it would. At the time, it was one of the only 3rd-party media packs around. We'll see what the response is.

I find this pack great for starters, but if you were to decide if it should be Free i would suggest just looking at the downloads/purchase for the past few months.

If this Pack is released I will probably Retexture the Models.
If i do ill release them publicly

I can't see why anyone would object you giving it away for free. people need to understand that is just the way of the world of business. that like if people got mad when tgc first put fpsc up for for $50 then the price drops years later and everyone can get it dirt cheap with model packs. people understand that things like this can't be possible without support. i myself had people make models for me then they decide to take those model and sell them cheaper then what I pay for them. It did not matter to me because it allow those who could not afford them at the price I payed to be able to afford them. this community is good for free models and low price models. the pack 7 years old I don't see why not.

more than what meets the eye

I bought it long ago and have no objections to you releasing it for free Keith

Maybe it's just that very few of those who would have purchased it are around any more. Since crashing hard drives etc I reckon I dont have it in inventory anymore so it's actually nice to be reminded, it was a very handy pack.

They may be older, but some look great still today.

Thanks guys. I'll say this now, and I'll reiterate it in the official thread later on: I normally jump all over people about partial re-textures of others work; but with my pack, feel free to do a partial or total re-texture and share them with everyone here (I do ask that you post them in the thread, when it's made).

I'll also see about including the .3ds version of the pack in a separate download; feel free to use these in other engines as well. Should help fill those scenes up a bit more.

They'll be hosted on Blackfox's site; and when it's ready, I'll have the link up as well.

Still trying to find that old installer copy. Until then; here's the regular download containing both .3ds and .x formats. Enjoy.

Well; I can't seem to locate the darn installer version anywhere. So; once I collect all the thumbnail images (for the editor menu) and .fpi files, I'll make an official thread on this. The download in the post above contains everything you need, except the aforementioned items.
