Pocket Plane Group FAQ
« on: March 31, 2004, 08:03:16 PM »
Q: Who are you and what are you doing here?

A: This is Pocket Plane Group, a new Web community focusing on creating mods and add-ons for Baldur's Gate 2 and other games built with Bioware's Infinity Engine.

Q: I recognize you... and you were there, too! Where do I know you from?

A: You probably recognize various names and mods from Forgotten Wars. All of our launch projects began on FW, a modding community we've spent the last two and a half years building into a success.

Q: So, what are you doing here?

A: There was a difference of opinion on management and direction with FW's webmaster.

Q: Oh. So, now what?

A: Now, we continue to develop and support what we like to think are among the most interesting projects for BG2 and other games.

Q: Like?

A: Like Kelsey and Ashes of Embers and Virtue and so forth.

Q: Oh. Can I take part?

A: We're quite happy to hear from you. By all means, download the mods, play them, critique them, enjoy them. Learn how we did what we did, and go forth and do it better. More projects will undoubtedly be added to PPG once we get our footing.

Q: Who came up with the name?

A: It was suggested by Bons.

Q: I see Ghreyfain, but... what about BoB?

A: Mr. Fain says, "My policy is no in-progress mod boards. From this point hence."

Q: Pocket Plane? P...P... hey, you guys are the PEEPEE MODS!

A: Just goes to show that a college education doesn't necessarily mean you think through the "silly acronym" potential for a name before you commit with the domain registrar. Still, we'll thank you to go with the much more scifi-sounding PPG (Pocket Plane Group) designation whenever possible.

Q: Hi, I am interested in starting a poll full of spurious nonsense. Do you reserve the right to lock it at any moment?

A: Yes.

Q: Since modding is such a demanding, lengthy process, I bet you have an IRC channel you use for massive time-wastage, right?

A: Of course. irc.slashnet.org , channel #ppgmod

Q: Hi! Should I discuss religion, Hitler, or both at the same time here?

A: No, you really shouldn't. Yahoo Groups offers thousands upon thousands of outlets for such discussions, and we feel they are much better equipped to handle them than we are.
