Well they have jobs. TCE is merely a hobby of sorts for them which is why development is slow as with all indie games.

guys please be more serieus,

how about some cheap ingame advertisements from some websites?
and it should cost about 70euro per month, and it will appear 1 out of the 20 times, if they wanna let the advertisement appear more longer they have to pay more,
the advertisement should like appear on the corner of your screen evrytime u load a map,

or how about a true combat magazine for the true fans?
with guides, secret progress on the development, free posters included, i dont know... u guys should come up with some ideas too, and xeno, u should be more optimistic, than maybe u can come up with better idea's

I wasnt being pesimistic about this but it was more of a sad realization of something I lost.

Ingame ads will only kill the game. Look at CS, nobody, even fans, took it well.

The next best option is running donations from seirous fans. This money would be sued to fund the game not the devs. The devs have their own jobs as I said and this is just a hobby. If this hobby had its own money then the devs wont have to their personal spend money on it.

or a subscription that cost 10euro per month,
if people subscribe that monthly subscription they will receive a "True Combat magazine" every month, with the latest updates and news and revealed secret development progress and stuff...,

and this not a WoW type of monthly fee or something, its not obligated, but this more for the fans, and for the one's willing to support this game,

I don't think a magazine would work, they're expensive to make, hard to fill, and almost impossible to be cost-effective when it comes to overseas stuff.

I think the way it's set up right now would work best. that and sticking google ads in. they're cool.

Still, wouldnt it really be easier to just get funding from donations. Basically it is the same principle. Its like they pay money to get their favorite game developed further but tehy arent forced to.

but what i actually mean is, that the devs should a constant monthly income,
instead of being dependent on donations,

now i wanna suggest something but before im going to suggest it, i like to know how much it will cost for hosting an own server, not the regular server hosting, but i mean owning the whole server list from TCe, and what are the requirements?

for owning all the servers for TC:E, you would be paying an infinite price. anyone can host a TC:E server. assuming there were 500 servers, at $20 per month (a steal) you'd be paying $10000 for servers.

i think some minor product placement wouldn't be too bad as long as the community knows it is there to help the game

and also, by the legal situation TCE has, being a mod for another game and not a standalone game using 100% TT owned assets (engine and everything) - they cannot charge any money for TCE no matter what you call it.

It is either donations or selling magazines and other items as you said (however the later will also require money to get products made in the first place)
