Is this a commercial project with realistic chances of making more money than it will cost in time to make? Or are you going to pay your artists per hour or per assignment as they go?

If neither, you should switch to Panda3D and release under an open source or free license. Because otherwise there isn't much incentive for artists to help you out for free.

Closed source, freeware game projects are rarely successful. And even then, less rewarding for contributors, because their closed source nature doesn't easily attract future maintainers, which leads to a much shorter lifespan.

So now there's "3" (note my quotes) games based off of Nexuiz? Why? Also, how far have you come with Xion and what are the goals? So basically, there's Nexuiz based off DarkPlaces, there's Nexuiz based off Cryengine and Nexuiz based off Unity? I'm sorry if sound harsh and negative but, why not make Nexuiz for all kinds of engines?

Again, I'm not against you, your idea and ambition, I just can't get my head around why anyone would want to make yet another Nexuiz game.

Answer: It's called Xion. It's free and open source. It is a fork of Nexuiz...maybe.

Question: What information do I know about the Xion project?

Xion sounds awfully like Xonotic.. and now based on the same engine.. urgh! What is really the point? Why not just help out with Xonotic?

I've seen (and had) first hand experience with people who constantly change their minds in development. It ends up falling flat on it's face. (Don't mean to sound harsh).

Xion has been renamed and changed, see the Aylonic topic for info!

And yes, Xion has got into a Nexuiz Image Mod and sounds Awfully like Xonotic
