I've been thinking about the future of the map lately, and I've got a few questions for the community:
First question: If I posted all of the models, textures, etc. here, would anyone here want to create their own skins for them, edit their animations, or whatever else, assuming I wrote some tutorials on how to do so? I believe such a thing would free up a lot of development time on my end and it'd likely make the game better as a whole. And having a lot of extra skins is always fun. The creators of the skin can determine what to do with them - whether they're exclusive to the skin maker, or anyone can use them, or the skin is donor exclusive. If the skin is donor exclusive, I would be more than willing to split donations for their skin with the skin creator. That can be seen as an incentive to help out with this.
Next question: if at some point I decide to stop actively updating the map, could I open the map up to the community for improvements? The basic idea is this: for each update, I would post an unprotected map here of that update and allow anyone to tinker with it and let the community edit it and show off their own changes, with the best changes being added to the main map and put on the bot. I would also post some documentation on how some things work, what must be done to implement new characters, and so on. Of course, everyone would be free to make their own version of the map and host it themselves. But the main idea is having a central map that can be edited as a community. With bugs fixed by the community, characters made by the community, features added, etc.
