$1000 dollars is hardly putting it in competition with Torque...

AMP? Isn't that the engine that doesn't even support a moving game world?

There is a non-commerical license available for 100$ unless I am mistaken?

Mods generally aren't commercial, hence this counts as personal use. If you want to use it to release your game for profit, you need the $1000 commercial licence.

Sorry cheapy, but last I checked, the $100 for torque is personal use only. The commercial use package is $750.

Oh, sorry for the double post but I just found out something I think is important regarding the Amp II engine.
The next version coming out, 1.4, will have physics support, which should be something to consider.
