The various bits of tech I was thinking about were the renderer, the node/verts/size limit work and the improved bsp generation I touched on briefly.
Hi Enigma, glad to hear from you. This would depend entirely on Raven (our current RD coder) and how this content might compare to the content already done (there's quite a lot of engine expansions for RD already and the poor guy is wearing himself thin with the amount of stuff he's cramming into it all
Everytime I speak to him he's got something else added to the game, like just today we have a functional method to build level out of solids only in UED that matches the one in UT3's editor). The best way to see about this would be to get Raven a version of your renderer for BFNP and everything else, if that's fine, just so he can see for himself the differences and what we could use/finish from the BFNP side. I'll turn him on to the thread.

There are file size issues. Uncompressed, I have about 205MB of maps, 591MB of textures and 95MB of music. Surprised
Perhaps I should post you a CD, lol...
EDIT: Actually, that's not such a dumb idea...
It's not dumb idea
, though I think we could hear from a few more people before we see about getting it all
to me. I could at least take a look at the stuff approved already, such as your maps for instance. In particular the coastal fortress is something I'd be curious to see (as I've never actually seen it beyond a screenshot or two). That would be a smaller sized load that you could upload or email to me even. I'd even suggest an irc session some day this week where we could transer files. I do not have access to the old-FTP.
