...Since Warband is so similar, would it take long? What kind of work would be involved?
As I can see in the crude module files (the Module System has not been released yet) porting to Warband will require a complete restructure of the current code, It is more easy and grateful recode SWC again that trying to restore existing code (most part) With a medium porting of the existing code (3-4 months of fast work) the actual new features of the mod will be null and newly created ones will be more interesting and immersive (new WB features etc)
So the code (in case of full agree) will be completely redone, for ease, optimization and new features (including multiplayer ones)... Talking in time ~ 5 - 7 months maybe, but depends mostly in the desire, knowings, and free TIME of the active coding members
Ok... I finished... are you happy now?
@Hokie: As the MSys has not been released yet, I'm busy tweaking the new Warband interface, if I'm capable of it, I'll redo all the color scheme, ask me about the finished galaxy map, the new planet icons and the new "improvements"... hopefully you have a great idea of new planet retextures... generic or custom ones
