My idea is letting modders take over some of the candy stuff, even production of planes, but still give the money to 777
The biggest thing holding ROF back right now is DX9. ROF runs like absolute *hit compared to BOX - my specs are below. An engine-level port isn't something modders will be capable of.
And honestly, if we want models of consistent, good quality asking the community to produce them for free so 777 can profit from them probably isn't going to produce those types of results.
You will get:
A. No content because nobody wants to work for free so 777 can profit from the labor.
B. Sloppy, inconsistent work because "I just want more content and 777 is going to make money from my half-assedness anyway."
C. The occasional creator willing to release high-quality content at their own time/money expense but the development pacing puts you back in to the realm of "official development" (Hardly any development at all...)
Just my opinion... I love ROF too but turning it in to an open platform will ruin it, and again, invalidate any possibility that 777 will officially review the product again.
