Vapour Team : We've got a lot of new stuff in the works. We're working on some statssystems to track stats about your play, we're expanding the types ofcontent we support to include things like sound packs and models, andwe're looking at implementing a friend/buddy system.

- Vossey.com : You expected such a success? Valve is not jealous?
Vapour Team : We're not trying to compete with Valve, since valve doesn't offerthese features yet. In addition to valve games, we support many othergames which we think makes Vapour a better platform for distributingmods. We're very pleased with the success we've had so far.
