FAF basically can be seen from three perspectives:
The community (+ content)
The community is of coursed not owned by anybody. However we have organized the work in dedicated teams, with each team having a dedicated team leader. The list of teams, leaders, their mission statements and way of workings can be found in the here.
The content of the community (maps & mods in particular) are owned by the particular creators. The legal entity is only hosting it.
The community live takes place mostly in
- the IRC chat access by the client (or any other IRC tool)
- the forum
- the official Discord server
We also have some dedicated places to meet, e.g.
- Zulip (invite only, contact a moderator or forum admin to get access)
- Map & Mods discord
- AI dev discord
- Nomads discord
- and some others
The open source project
The open source project runs on Github. As the name implies it's free software, to be used by everybody.
FAF operates legally as registered association "Forged Alliance Forever" in Denmark. This association consists of members of our community (and is open for all). The association elects a board that represents FAF officially.
The legal entity operates the infrastructure for FAF (domains, servers, 3rd party services...) and owns the data on the servers.
However, all work (server admins, developers, supporters) is done by volunteers in their free time.
