I didn't insult anyone.

Yes, it was old when they used it for JKA. Which is one more reason to not use such an old engine now.

I agree. But it's not what this is about, I believe.

It's not doable. Not unless the game uses Quake 3 engine (which it won't, if it ever gets made).

One doesn't need to be a modder to have good ideas. I'm sure people brainstorm a lot of of them when they are about to make a game. However, they have a limited time and budget to make a game. They need to focus on essential things like story, gameplay and level design. They don't have time and money to make as much levels or skins as the modding community did on all these years. We have to be realistic here.

That's arguable. And even if true, that's because Raven had more important things to focus on. I'm sure a modder could come up with a very good map. But that modder didn't have to create code, story, animations, assets, etc. All of that was given to him already. An unfair and unrealistic comparison.
