To be totally honest, I am not convinced that going under GPL license is the best solution for SWC.
I dream of other universe since years already. technically, it would be simple to setup:
- another server
- new pictures and gameplay content (races, items, descriptions....)
- A team to support the players.
And that's it.
Such alternate universes could use the same code and same patch release system as us, even based on a single dev server (where we would add the ability to change of thema).
Even if we attract developers more interested in another thema, all universes and game instances would benefit from their coding.
What could we use a first themas ?
- Antic wars (Roma)
- Middle Earth or other heroic fantasy)
- Non-SW space opera.
To be totally honest, having the RM requirements equation would help for all this.
