I'm a TA and and I think it's sad that the game was never open sourced. It's not about having a free games, but more about correct small bugs and make small improvement to have a perfect version. Of course, only once the game is no more sell. After like 6-7 years. Or if Uber goes bankrupt like Cavedog We could have a bug free version on Windows 7 and Windows 8 and whatever OS come next. ( I always have network problems with Windows 7 ) The pathfinder could have been improved. The current one is very weak. Adding improvement like a gradual metal reclaiming, even bigger maps, auto-downloading of maps, coherent right click support etc.. I'm sure the community around TA would be a lot bigger than it is now. Look how successfull OpenTTD is. ( OpenTTD is a remake of Transport Tycoon ) If Planetary Annihilation is as good as TA, I think it would be a shame to have the same ending that TA. Thanks for reading!
