Oh, they are aware it has a following. They've even had offers to buy them out. Flybert probably has the details. IIRC it was from his posts that I learned most about the sad history of this beloved game.

I think the problem is that Vivendi is not inclined to waste their time on something unless the profit is significant and the details simple. My brother in law works for one of the US Agr-business giants and he's told me they will sell off/liquidate/whatever even a profitable subsidiary if they can make more money more easily elsewhere.

Hi All.

I thought you guys had the source code for RB, or how did the RB Promised Land mod ever get done?
Sorry for the silly question.

I have a copy of RB 3D, which I've only loaded a few times, but I never really got into it. I'm always to busy with EAW mods, to play any of the other Sims I have. \:\(

I've also seen the Promised Land mod available on most of the P to P sites, but I've never had the time to download it. I mention it because I saw someone was looking for a download for it.


Supports EAW 1.29.exe, Drop in and Play Technology. wink

Hi Colonel and welcome to RB forum on SimHQ.

No, we don't have RB code, it has been almost surely lost forever when Vivendi bought Sierra. The trick, very similar of that of EAW, is RB search first in "Simpatch" folder for files and then extract them from .VOL ones, which are like .CDF in EAW. We just modify files that are even easier in case of texture, since simple .BMP.

You should try it, better after having patched it with the easiest, "one-click" UOP available which is Hell's Angels Super Patch, to make yourself aware of what waste of time is WWI mod in EAW, while there's already a much better one, with characteristics that EAW can't never have, like mission random generation and single aircraft texturing.

This is where you will find a link to the FCJ patch, just in case anyone is looking for it. \:\)

Thanks Greybeard, for the info on RB. As fow the WWI mod of EAW, this is a bit out of my control now. It started as a bit of a joke, just to see how far I could go building a new 3dz. ;\)

Keep the scratched CD as proof of purchase so you can possess copies from other sources without worry.
I tried to D/L the free German version for a similar reason - establish a right to share free copies. After hours downloading I got booted by a server reset. Damn dial-up!
