Suggestion: Release the Toolset's source code to the community
I have a bold suggestion for Beamdog: Why not release the Aurora Toolset's source code to the community?
Make it public so that we can implement some of the many good suggestions that are posted all over this place ourseves.
I'm just talking about the Toolset
here: the frontend, the user interface, the compiler, etc. All that makes up the modding experience. Most of these things are straight forward and since all the file formats have already been released they bear no secret at all.
I'm not talking about any of the game engine, which is assumedly D&D licensed or something, or the graphics engine. Just the framework parts.
You could release that under some kind of development license that allows you to use any of the community provided extension back in your own bundles whenever you see fit.
Judging from the Trollo board I assume that currently there are like 2-3 devs working on the project. How much time can they spend on Toolset features, that probably will not immediately generate revenue streams for the project?
Think of it like this: If the toolset is better, more modders will produce content. More content means more gamers. And more gamers means more revenue in the long run.
(Again, if that has already been suggested somewhere, please excuse me. I haven't found it yet.)
