Nah he means lucasforums is bone dry (which it is).
Modellers dont do many requests for people because it takes so long. Its not like re skinning a model which takes time but creating a whole new model requires time just to make the model frame, then weight it and rig it for the game. Then you have to create a whole skin and check it for problems. Even doing a rough outline of a model for a mod thats work in progress takes several weeks - time many people wont give for someone else when they have their own projects.
