If anyone is interested in making this a reality request to join the new team I have just setup called Free Community Project and together we can make this happen
Have a +1, sir. I must agree with all you said, including the fact that Rich has done an amazing job with his tuts, I have learnt so much from him. I think your idea is great and you should certainly follow through with it!
Thanks for the vote of approval I apologize for the late reply the team and I have been swamped with work over the last few days (gotta squash those bugs...) I have created a thread if anyone is interested let it be heard at http://www.crydev.net/viewtopic.php?f=291&t=96067 also a minor update we are currently working on a few testing ground type maps for AI, weapons and possibly a physic based map at a later date.
We also have a few debug weapons we might include like our mighty Minecraft style box pistol =P which the animators cooked up while awaiting weapon models to be finalized (don't expect to see any high poly weapons in the public domain soon those are staying exclusive to our project Infectious Life but we might be generous enough to include 1 game ready weapon say a pistol to be packaged with the free community maps royaltiy free for you guys to pull apart and tinker with)
Again thank you all for your support through the forums and direct PMs
Sounds good man; looking forward to seeing the things you have done.
