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:

Yeah, Source engine has a more bigger community but from what I've seen so far, ID Tech 4 has a smaller one but stronger. They added so many new things from HDR to Megatextures.
