Patches / Extensions

Are you ever going to release a small improvement to CM (or any other game), or will we just have to wait for a total rebuild?

As an example, an easy upgrade could be the ability to make a campaign - we'd just need a window, "Design Campaign", in which we'd select a sequence of missions, a starting caption, and a victory/loss caption.

A medium upgrade could be formation editing, which I'd imagine would take some coding, but could let you make a custom formation. These (and the campaigns) could be posted on the website.

Naturally, any large upgrades - like network play, or something - will have to wait months or years for CM5. But there's surely nothing stopping you releasing a small add-on along these lines.

Oh, and one other thing:

How much trouble would it be to make a mission with >2 nations? You'd need to change the mission editor... and run AI twice/three times over... but I don't think you'd have to do anything new.
