At the Q&A thread it is said that it will be a mod and not be a standalone game.
But from developer responds you say that it will be a free standalone game, it's obviously this but it would be wise to update the Q&A thread if this is the matter.
Also, how are you possibly going to fund this game if it is free? i mean, renegade is renegade, you can't just make it a korean Pay 2 Win game, cosmetic items that are hard to get and are purchaseable is fine by me, but i don't think Hats belong into this game.
Perhaps a donation function, but that's all upto you.
Second question: What time are you hoping to release the game around? it's done when it's done but i and others would like to know about the progression about things.
Anyway when i came across http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CX8xyQHCC_A
i shed manly tears of happiness that could fill bottles, the best time of my life was around when i heavily played C&C renegade, i'm so incredible happy and thankfull. God bless you and your team.
I'm certain this feeling counts to many other fans of renegade, thanks again man.
