    How has your contact between Toho and other studios been in the past half year?

    There's been no reason for me to be in touch with them. So - no change?

    Oh,okay.I was just wondering about their opinions,amount of support,and possibly input towards Sunstones and C.K.C..Like have these studios say how cool it was for C.K.C.'s eventual goal to mix fan made monsters with film monsters?

    Hi Simon,

    When I came to register here, it said my email address was already banned. It was the same email used for my account which donated to the kickstarter back in the day. Any idea what's up with that?

    So if I want people to see my kaiju and ask for feedback, I can just go to the forums and ask so? Still very new to this site and am not completely sure how to navigate it.

    Short answer - they are a general measure of how long / how active you've been on the forums.

    Long answer -

    This forum is built on the Xenforo software, which can be extended with several different plugins. One of those plugins I've added gives users points for various activities. I changed the name of those points to "Kaiju Coins". I also created a software link between our forum accounts and a user's steam account, which allows people playing CKC on Steam to earn Kaiju Coins on the forums. That was done a few years back to encourage people to play CKC every day or two, to help find bugs & balance issues. But since we've suspended active development on the video game, all of that is moot. But the Kaiju Coins are still being tracked, because it would take significant time and effort to remove them. And they do no harm - as I said in my short answer, they still generally indicate how active and engaged a person is with the community.

    Uh, is it really a good idea to directly ask the developer with ties to Pipeworks and whatnot about a project like that? I'm not even sure if he could comment on it without stepping on thin ice.

    But maybe I'm overthinking it?

    It's, for the most part, a texture hack. Plenty of developers have discussed mods before. Unless Simon condones piracy, I doubt there's any issue here.

    I saw a development video about it. When we made G:U (and all of the Godzilla games, really) we were color-balancing for CRT monitors, which were the norm then. Running those games on modern LCD screens absolutely ends up with them looking washed-out, so I'm glad this mod returns some of the classic color contrast.
