I think we should buy it, and if you donate, you get a right to the liscence. That means you can publish your mod work using the FS open stuff. I'd say that sounds pretty fair, right? And if you want to get the liscence, you donate money to a money pool, where we use it to do other items, or you negotiate with another member.
But I'm not sure about V developing the new game, I mean, it'd be great, but that would mean we would have an "official" game, therefore all the fan made projects would go out the window. That's my opinion, at least.
EDIT: As I posted in the other thread, I am willing to donate up to 2 or 3 hundred dollars to the cause. I have 100 ready to go RIGHT now, 100 on standbye, but the last 100 I'm pretty sure I have.
