Instead of giving each person a source copy, release it to a dev group from the community and have them work on it together, collaborating among themselves on what would be good for adom. like i said in the other post, make sure they're trustworth people devoted to preserving the magic of adom. I dont want the source as I cant program very well and I wouldnt want to 1. see it and get spoiled. or 2. get tempted to play with it (I know I would) and break it.
I've modded alot of games before but that was with tools provided or small mods like changing dmg of something or HP. Im sure if I read the source enough I could figure it out, but im not going to be greedy. there are other people that the source would be in much better hands. I dont know who can code but i know of a few people I would trust with the source just from knowing them on the forums.
