    JackOneill made a post on the Atlantis: Fight for Earth website regarding the end of development on the mod. Here's a portion of the whole post:


    Hello folks, it's been a while since I’ve last visited this place to talk publicly on behalf of Atlantis. And unfortunately it will be the last time. As you've probably guessed the mod isn't going well, hence the reason for the lack of updates and news since the release of our alpha.

    I've come here today to announce officially the end of Atlantis, and I have to admit it is a relief for me to do so. I understand it may cause disappointment to the people who have supported us and have appreciated our mod, but life is sometime unkind. I will try to explain you the reasons for this situation, as I consider you deserve to be given an explanation.

    i would also probobly sound rude, by saying this, but teh cxp needs a concept artist, an sound tech and a modelor or two.... we may not be paying, but we are needing people who love playing unreal games... we have work that needs to be done, and it is hush hush... oh, for the modelors and conept artists, the knowledge on how to do human like models is a plus.

    there aren't words that can properly explain how much this news sucks.

    Atlantis is one of my favorite mods.

    Not good.........

    I think it's a shame that another good idea has gone south for whatever reasons......

    In my personal opinion I don't think that other modders should use this thread to pimp their own product. It doesn't really put their own work in the best light.

    For whatever reason the mod died a little respect comes from letting them have one last thread as a way for us who were lucky enough to get their mod for nothing (except the price of our bandwidth) to say:

    "RIP Atlantis and thanks for the playgear!"

    I still can't see how people can say one of the best. It had nice graphics, that's about it. And when I say nice graphics, I'm talking about the human arsenal and pmodels, the AT side had a lot of work to be done.

    I also can't say I'm shocked by this annoucement either, it was only matter of time from my perspective. Good luck to you all though! :)
