Garrett2112 is on a distinguished road
Either way - the engines are amazing IMO & would have to ask - how much of a benefit is it to a developer to start on day one having a very stable, optimized, beautiful, easy to use engine to develop the game on - and thus, just have to focus on creating the world/game on it? Seems to me that would save a lot of development time/costs IMO....

Was also trying to remember correctly - but thought the fees on the ID Tech engines (up to ID Tech 4 & don't think they license 5...) is/was like $250K to start and 15% (or something similar) of total profits? Could see that possibly end up costing more than a flat $1.2M maybe...
