With all the problems experienced in modding UT3 to make even the level(s) for Unreal Baseball, id Tech 4's editor is less "bug-infested," and with the GPL release of id Tech 4 planned for 2009, what better time to convert the PC version of Unreal Baseball to id Tech 4? It would simply be called "Baseball" on the PC, and, Unreal Baseball for PS3 would be picked up again after some (possibly significant) progress on "Baseball." Ultimately the community will decide if this "mod" becomes a game of its own.

This video is of the only current Unreal Baseball developer's experimental level, made with the assistance a YouTube contact:

Ever since the source code for Doom 3 engine (also known as id Tech 4 engine) has been released nine months ago, the information on id Tech 4 here on ModDB says the license is commercial, rather than GPL'd. I'd believe this should be updated soon.

You're an absolute jerk. "Prey 2", "IODoom3", etc. They are all using Id Tech 4 technology/engine.

Not to downsize Id Tech 4, but you should take a look at Overdose which runs on a overhauled Id Tech 2
