To be honest, I do like the name changes. But why waste time changing this (as well as posting the extra A.W. certified workshop listings) rather than really fixing all the game's problems? I'm sure we are all aware of SpinTiresMod (made by god himself). We have to use this to work around the game. It shouldn't be that way. Most (if not all) of the features in this third-party software should be implemented into the base game. Especially for the people such as myself that mod this game.
These are all just my first hand opinions. A lot of people may agree with me, a lot may not.. Regardless, I think the developers could be doing a way better job. I really do enjoy modding this game. It has tons of potential.
Also, I am wondering, does anyone know if Pavel is still the lead developer for MudRunner? Has he moved back to Spintires: The Original Game?
