As far as ultimative goes, yes. We have no intentions on keeping compatibility with other mods for sigma however, as it will be more difficult due to the new engine.

I know it may sound stupid but could you clear a bit more this for me?
We will still be hosting the installer in ModDB, due to the free advertising, but our site won't take you there anymore. The fact that they require you to register to download is quite lame, also they don't provide any kind of API for direct downloading, which we will require for our launcher/updater tool.
