Good luck with your initiative!
We are focussed on BCOF.
What will happen in the future after that I cannot say for now.
BCOF will give you a similar experience to NW, just in a different setting.
First, thank you for your response, it's good to see developers chatting with us !
To come back on your words, I think you missed the interest of the project, or else I was not clear, and I apologize.
People don't want to play a game that feels like NW, they want to play NW. The community created and organized historical regiments, events, hierarchy that are specific to the Napoleonic Wars era. They are attached to that, and we want to give them a worthy sequel of that specific expansion.
I would especially like to emphasize the fact that the DLC (made by the developers) is something we would look into on the very long term
. As Herishey said, and I confirm his words, the project will span several years, meaning that in the immediate, we do not request the creation of a DLC. It is just a very distant goal as we are fully aware of the current focuses of the different developers. And as you said, we don't really know what will happen in the future. But nothing prevents us from organizing already a group/staff and gathering the community. We will take the time it takes, steps by steps.
As I said previously, we first focus on growing our community, and forming our future developer team. The mod creation and development (that would entirely depend on our team and on the community) will take time and is not going to happen in the immidiate.
