Simplistic question here. With all of the work of Sampson and everyone else about the underground mathematics of CIV II, and the ability to mimic the graphics, and the massive programming skills I'm sure exist out there, why is the source code necessary? Why can't people just gather together and start collaborating on the code? Heck, they could collaborate on here, right? I mean, some software people could start putting together a skeleton and define objects and have people work on separate parts like graphics, events, etc. Or would that be treading on some copyright issues? Or would it just be like way too much work? Forgive me if I'm naive, I have VERY limited coding experience. I think you could easily fix some of the problems with Civ II along the way, or at least make the code more robust. Eh, now that I think about it, maybe that is a ton of work.
