Gamebryo Acquired

Korean company Gamebase announces the acquisition of the assets of Emergent Game Technologies, including the game engines Gamebryo and LightSpeed 3D. "The Gamebryo 3D engine has been a flexible, transparent, dependable solution for video game developers and publishers globally and has been used to develop hundreds of titles," said JY Park, president of Gamebase. "Our first goal is to focus on the company’s roots - working closely with customers and providing excellent customer service. This is one of the key reasons why Gamebryo evolved into such a popular development engine." Here word on some of the many places you've seen this technology: "Best known for its industry-leading 3D game engines, Gamebryo and LightSpeed, Emergent's technologies have been selected by studios around the world to bring nearly 300 titles across more than 15 genres to market, including Game of the Year award-winning titles like Fallout 3, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, as well as critically acclaimed titles like Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, Civilization Revolution, Speed, Divinity II – Ego Draconis and Bully."

Quake and Quake 2 didn't "have skies" because id wasn't trying to........... I tend to believe that if they designed it to have big, beautiful outdoor scenes, then those scenes are going to perform wonderfully.
I don't think your being accurate, id has coded several engines which sucked at many things and excelled at other things.

Many other engine companies built engines had skies, great looking textures and online multiplayer. Your theory seems extremely flawed when you claim id wasn't trying to make a fully functional engine, when compared to other companies.

As far as carmack goes, it's extremely hard to believe he gives a shit. He specifically stated in the past he didn't care what fans thought. He does, "what he wants" (paraphrasing here, it's been around 6 years). Also I distinctly remember the doom3 launch, he clearly had his head up his butt when it came to programming the engine. He stated, "he was more interested in his rocket".

He and company maybe capable but they sure the hell haven't show it in action or deed. All they have done since Quake 2 is spit out engines which do corridor, hall and room structures, with basic colors of brown, green and gray (well I stopped paying attention after doom3). Unless something has changed, which I highly doubt.
 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
