As far as CD-keys go, I only have one thing to say: put it in the manual! It's SO easy to lose cd-keys, but if they're printed inside the manual that's not an issue.
It's nice to hear there will be a GUI scripting option, and if it's of the same caliber as the warcraft III scripting system, we're all in for a real treat. Although they're rare, well done GUI scripting systems are extremely approachable, and enable a wealth of possibilities and creativity.
Oh, and if you do a beta, it would be nice if you include the map editor. In addition to a wonderful testing opportunity, it will create a wealth of fan content before the game releases.
Yeah I'm not good with mapping I do think it would be fun to play around with. And Darvin, when you said CD-keys what did you mean? Like the specs to run the game? Sorry I'm not very technical with this kind of stuff.
