From: Penrith, Australia
None of the CC games have been intended as game creation toolkits. Yet create they did.
It would be incredible if PitF could have all of the various 'abilities' of the older titles, even if they are not used in Pitf, lying dormant, ready to be used if needed. That way all of the older mods could be retooled and brought up to the new level, using all of their previous 'abilities' as they did in the older games.
Honestly, it would be a big selling point for this game; I can just imagine many, many thoughts inside peoples heads now;
"Hmm, should I buy this game?....but I already have the last 1/2/3/4...don't need a new one...Western Front again...hmmm..."
Modders: "Is it possible to utilise featureX from LSA/TLD/WAR/COI in PitF?"
Matrix: "Yes! PitF will allow all of the features from our previous games, even if this campaign does not utilise them"
Modders: "Excellent! Time to get all of those 50 mods retooled/New mods made/etc etc!"
Possible buyers: "Wow, did you hear that? PitF is going to have the definitive versions of mod X, and a new mod on X operation, and they use all new features only available with PitF...Gotta buy me this game!"
I know I think like that, and from interacting with my fellow man, I tend to find a lot of others seem to operate in the same manner. And the best part is that it will be a win/win for Matrix too. This is the final 2d'er for this series, therefore it won't detract from the sales of a new, super-duper, you beaut 3d series that is next on the market.
Might want to think about going for it guys and updating this puppy.
