. This is clearly what would be an amazing improvement to make, but like everything, the issue is developer time and the opportunity cost of it.
OK. so this begs the question...
I suspect there are a lot of people out there who would be happy to pay for improvements.
Have you guys considered stuff like kickstarter, or doing the equivalent on your own?
And basically just set it up so that when something funds, you hire the devs and roll?
I mean, I know there are ramping issues... and need to maintain a team with full knowledge of codebase...
But I mean, if we are willing to pay for stuff... in a way that would grow the team and get things released more quickly....
Has anything like this been considered?
To let the community pay for what it wants?
Vote with the wallet and so on?
Hell, I'd pay a monthly subscription, if I could vote on next update.
Restructure roadmap, give option of paying for season passes, which give ability to vote on update sequence?
Wot is the hesitation with doing this, exactly?
Draginol has said, "it's not about the money" to me on more than one occasion...
... and yet then I see statements like this, about dev resources being limited.
Release the kracken, already!
Let us pay for the stuff we want and MAKE IT HAPPEN SOON!
(We'll try not to destroy argus while we're at it.)
