who, me? I'm more of a fixup/support guy really. anyway, as mentioned in the systemshock.org SS2EE speculation topic
, the initial KEX release will probably be less modder friendly than NewDark - remember, NewDark had almost a decade to make another decade of modder wishes come true, that will be hard to beat no matter how good the KEX guys are.
one thing the KEX port will hopefully bring is no dependency on ancient tools - being able to create new AI models without having to convert them to be Dark compatible, for example.
the best part (if it's really going to happen, that is), is yet again, resolving the legal situation, meaning anyone being able to work on the source without the risk of getting sued to oblivion.
