Utopia?! Man, that game was good.It's no problem! These are fair questions. Little history before the answer:
When I released the 2.1 pack I released it unfinished. Notably, the initial release didn't have Knuckles, instead it had a placeholder as a joke. However, after I updated it to include the proper model, people still thought Knuckles wasn't in it. And I got burnt out updating the pack and adding the missing models. I didn't like working in the old style either since it didn't match what I *actually* wanted from the model pack.
I want to finish every vanilla model I plan to make before I release it. Mod characters might get added with updates, but I also want to do the mod characters I care about most for the initial release, in case I get burnt out again. After I finish the model pack I also have to put more focus into Sonic Utopia, which I'm a key dev and the lead animator on. Having this pack be in the background while I work on that has slowed down production of *both*.
So I'm guessing that after you finish the badniks, the vanilla cast is next?
Oh wait, I am missing something....
