The simple honest answer is that the version of Unreal Engine 3 we used to ship Airborne did not support modding. We have been involved in several code updates since the ship of the game, but the varied costs of integrating a newer version of UE3 backwards into Airborne to allow modding is prohibitive. There is too much code we'd have to update, and it would essentially mean rebuilding too much of the game's architecture. Had Epic been farther along with UT3 while we were developing Airborne, things would have been different, but that is unfortunately what happens when you develop a game while the technology is still being developed.
