Strangely, I'm not concerned. He's facing an uphill battle.

Do you think this guy's project is a case for, or against, open source modding?

All he's changing are the weapon/class .txt scripts?

That and he's trying to import some weapon models from other games. And I guess he's planning on doing some lua stuff.

Hey, if he's into doing that sort of thing, you could always invite him to work on FF , so he'll actually have a team to work with and his efforts will go towards improving the game itself instead of just modding it for just personal use.

So far, we can only be certain that he has knowledge of how to use Notepad. He's not doing any real "modding" (programming, modeling, etc), he's taking advantage of the external text file parsing FF does to define certain things about classes and weapons. But, of course, he's free to apply.
