Just looking at the number of players in WEE, I wonder how many of them would actually be able to comprehend and use SDK to create new scenarios or campaigns. Same for map editor. I'm sure there are some people who could use SDK but is it worth the effort by EUGEN to offer it?
Might depend quite a bit on the editor - is it easy to use, how good the UI is, how powerful it is, ie. can you make good maps easily.
But you might be surprised. I've seen a good number of small titles get good modding/map making attention. Eg. Homeworld 2, WiC, Battlezone. Heck, I did quite a bit myself
We have a good quality community here, plus it's a niche game that probably don't get much more content from the developer, so the motivation for something from the community is there.
