I created this thread because I am detecting two schools of thought when it comes to creating new mods, and I just wanted to get some feedback from people of all levels of experience with the game.

What is your opinion relating to the nature of mods and remakes of Marathon? Do you favor the making of an evolved version of the game (i.e. one that, for example, takes place far into the future, with newer weapons, HUD displays, upgraded enemies, etc.) or keeping the game closer to the Trilogy? What about using a more modern game engine and the incorporation of bridges and balconies (yes, I know it's only hypothetical at this point)?

I'm all about a verbatim remake( maybe with minor adjustments)

I really don't have a preference when it comes to making mods. The Marathon Trilogy is just so awesome that it's hard not to expand on it, but being creative and making something new is cool too.

I belong to the other side. A verbatime remake is not so interresting.
We already have M1 for A1.

I want MOAR new levels, updated weapons and baddies, new interface,
new tactics. And everything that goes with that.

I think if you just managed to remake the multiplayer in source that would be an amazing step. do what you want after that. I dont have the time to get involved so you shouldnt pay too much attentioon to me.
