BTW, for those who may be wondering, yes. The download counter was reset again. 1.4 and 1.4a had somewhere on the order of 350 downloads, I forget exactly, but I figured I'd start fresh to keep an idea of how many 1.4b1 downloads there are.
I'm sure many of these will be repeated downloads from those who want to see what all has been done lately, which is fine, but I'm still disturbed by the shockingly small number of actual license compliant muds based on this code. Surely there can't have been in excess of 1500 downloads and not have more than 5 or so muds go up? Am I worried about nothing? Or have I come to the inescapable conclusion that people simply don't care about license agreements and things of that nature? I'd hate to find out people are running muds and not complying in the slightest, since that would do nothing but encourage the end of any further public releases or patches. I'm sure others agree as well.
