Do the FH group receive any financing from EA? There is nothing wrong with this just curious to know what is the "business model" in this ;) btw. for me the FH was the reason why I bought the BF.

Nope, FH is just something the devs do in their spare time.

Modding is a hobby. You never dream about what a game lack ? With modding, in the limit of the engine you can do everything you want contrary to video games which are restricted by their editor.

That it is a labor of love is what makes FH such a treasure; and the reason it's fans are so rabid and defend it as they do.

They are all volunteers who put all their love, anger, blood, sweat and tears in this beautiful baby. :nodding:

Even if they would get money from a source (EA for example :lol: they only buy out and dump your abused rotten body in a ditch when they are done with you. Oh and ofcourse donations by fans etc) it would be very hard if not impossible to distribute the money in a fair manner. How much would each person deserve? How do you rate the amount of effort put it? How do you keep track of how many hours somebody spents on the mod? How do you compensate former devs who laid the basis for the mod? How do you distribute the money all over the globe to all devs? How do you (...)?

So having the devs being paid would be very very very hard (ea impossible).

Would they leave the brain in that body in case anyone wanted it......

EA like: "A, so you guys a made a mod for our game? Looks nice". Then they grab some guns, shoot the FH dev, and then: " Hey guys, looks what we just made, a mod for BF" . And then they dump the real FH devs in the trash after cutting them up in small pieces.
