    translation: You need to find developers that are willing to work incredibly long hours for zero pay.

    You don't need idTech4 to do that, that capability has always been there. It's just a matter of finding developers who care enough about making single player games to actually do it. The teams behind Xonotic, Alien Arena, Warsow, etc, made multiplayer games because that is the type of game they like to play, coming from Q3, and UT backgrounds.

    Indeed way to heavy for what you get. Prey is a modified Doom 3 engine game and it has waaaaay better performance with waaaay more lightning...

    "Several times"? I barely got through the game once before running out of diapers.

    And I was playing on tampon mode.

Our rendering has evolved signifigantly enough beyond idTech4 in many areas that it doesn't make sense. However there may be a few items that we poach from it, more or less the same way we did when idtech3 was released.
    You should poach their build system and ditch autotools.
