flying lessons can get very expensive very quickly. not quite sure about helicopters, but i know prop planes and cessna flying gets really pricey as you learn more and move up towards a license. i imagine helicopter flying wouldn't be much different

Regarding PhantOS's concern about how UE4 mods are additive by default, they're absolutely looking into how to add hooks and ways to modify existing content—this is something that is planned.  There was an extensive conversation on this about a month ago.  They're not just going to slap together some half-assed superficial mod support system and then be done with it; that's not how they work.

Also, there's going to be a scripting language.  Stop saying it's just going to be blueprints.

Many of us have countless hours of development time invested in Blockland, which may not transfer to Brickadia like the community will.
A lot of people would be discouraged if they had to download an entire 20gb game engine just to make a small modification, when you can literally open the console in BL and make pretty sophisticated changes/additions without even leaving the game, with a scripting language that you can learn in it's entirety in an hour.
Even with full flexibility of a mod support system, runtime modding is always superior to baked mods and they do require reflection and interfaces made specifically for dynamic changes

This whole conversation is pointless because you guys basically just want the developers to turn Unreal Engine into Torque.  Unreal Engine is not Torque.  Like Ike said, Torque was an enigma and unique in its moddability.  Unreal Engine has an entirely different architecture and way of doing things, so it's not going to be the same.  Of course, that's not to say there aren't things to improve on, and they do have plans to improve on it as I mentioned above, but writing mods for an 18-year-old indie engine is not going to be the same as writing them for a modern AAA one.  You're going to have to get used to a new way of doing things, sorry.

Regarding runtime modding, you're essentially asking a development team of 7 people to fundamentally change how the engine works.  Runtime modding works in Torque because it was written to support that, but even then it was pretty hacky.  Let's not act like Torque was some pinnacle of modding lmao it definitely has its issues.

I understand people like their Torque and how moddable it is, but the fact of the matter is that there are no modern engines that have that level of moddability built into them.  Maybe there are some esoteric ones but none that are at the level of Unreal.  Again, they're planning to make mod support as flexible and extensive as they can, so don't think it's going to be some surface-level addition at the last minute like some of you keep insisting.  And like Aide said above, stating everything in absolutist terms is not productive nor is it realistic.
