  7. You've always been able to do this and tbh its better for content creators that way as they'd get 100% of your donation rather than whatever small percentage was on offer. Working on Ham and Jam for years cost myself and Jed a good couple thousand pounds in various fee's for hosting, svn repros, servers etc and we were very luckily to have a few followers donate a couple quid consistently every month to cover this for years without getting anything back for many years. We'd never have charged for the mod anyway, its a mod and was a hobby and requesting payment for it puts you in a weird position where people expect a hell of a lot more and continued support.
  8. It's a great engine but there's a lot of tribal knowledge that without direct help from Crytek or ex-Crytek staff you'll struggle to achieve what the engine can produce. It's certainly harder than other engines to get to grips with (lack of documentation/support hinders a lot) but its a kind of self dependent circle. If more people used it, there'd be more documentation to help get more people in.
