Spent some hours yesterday and went through the full 2 year long Sigma thread. I'm wondering, if MXLS is presumably forked from Ultimative, is it still being rebased continuously from most recent MXL '17 builds? :}

Just wondering about recent~ish MXL features like Reveal Map, etc.

Yes, content-wise Sigma will be built upon '17.

As a matter of fact, current patch's code features were ported from MXLS. As for the content, yes the base will be whichever patch is the current (much likely the current one) when MXLS is ready to be released.

Ah nice. I got the impression there was some major backporting going on in '17. ^^

I Have another question, It will be possible download Sigma through Launcher or it will be something else:P?

The thing about launcher is to make users life easier while installing (aka 1 click install/update and 1 click play). Reason Quirinus is working all day on launcher is to provide such thing, sigma will be no exception. Probably you wouldnt even need the diablo 2 copy, who knows.

That wouldn't be right nor legal, unless Sigma stops being a D2 mod and becomes an original stand alone game
