Told you so?

TBH I am not feeling much of anything (out of the ordinary) right now. Even the best of the best can aim too high, and since the start RA set itself some unrealistic goals. What could have been an amazing (yet smaller) mod was hindered by the loads upon loads of features that were planned. If the team (back in its glory, no, even in its waning days) had had a more concentrated scope, I don't think this would have happened.

But hey, that is just me. Some of the most, no, the most impressive models, skins and mechanics were created for this mod by the best of the best modders BFME had to offer... Its a shame that the project itself has made it so none of these things, YEARS in the making, will ever be played by anyone outside the RA team.

Umm, yeah...

Rules of beingTech-Support Guy: Never, ever EVER offer free tech support. Why?

First off, you are lowering the value of your skills. If you offer your time and money to serve others fore FREE, you are valuating yourself as worth $0.00.
Second, if something breaks (REGARDLESS of how long after your visit or if it was even related to your project) your "customer" will blame you on a dime. You will have to go back and fix his machine, spending MORE time and money WHILE having him bitch at you for "breaking it" in the first place.
Third, every noob and his mother will be begging you for support.
Fourth, people will try to exploit your good deeds for personal gain.

All these apply to creating any kind of asset pack for anything. If some idiot tries to install your assets without knowing what he is doing, he might break something in his mod. When he does that, he will sit around bitching at you for breaking it, and demand that you fix it. Some people will blatantly steal your crap, others will spam your PM box with countless "lol how do i install dis???" messages.

If you have the heart, patience and nerves of steel to do something like this, go ahead... But yes, it is an INSANELY thankless job.

You are forgetting that Att. Mods are Special Powers.

Behavior = AttributeModifierAuraUpdate ModuleTag_Leadership
StartsActive = Yes ;If no, requires upgrade to turn on.
BonusName = GenericBuff_BUBBLE
RefreshDelay = 2000
Range = 200
AntiCategory = BUFF

Every 2000 MS the Att. Mod is RECREATED with its full lifespan. If you look at most leaderships, they probably have a duration of 2500-3000 MS. Why so short? Because every 2 seconds, the modifier is reapplied! Also note that after a hero dies, his leadership mod stays on the units for half a second to a second... Its because the modifier has stopped being re-applied, however the original duration of the last applied mod still has to run down.
