Can we have an update as to whether Elemental will be given scripting support?
Rationally, I cannot see you rewriting all of the AI in Python. It's possible we might get API hooks and some of the game logic might be moved into it. Elemental has been quite the journey so far, but the scripting support that was part of the big lure for me has not materialized.
Faced with other contenders like SCII and Civ V, it is difficult for me to wait for Stardock, no matter how good the game is getting, or how "newb friendly," tools for editing the map and factions are. I'm no more satisfied by adding a new race to Elemental than I would be adding a new civilization to Civ - that's not why I mod.
So I would be happy to hear where Stardock is going with the game. I've already bought my copy, I'm not a lost sale. Will we get real scripting ability in the context of this game for doing total conversions, or is this a just a pipe-dream at this point?
