Maybe it's about time the front page is updated, especially the "features" page:

http://torque3d.org/engine/#features

And perhaps a feature list pinned on the top in the forums.

The outside world seems to still think about the T3D of 2012, I believe...

True, if possible, I want to participate in the improvement.

The website is dead, but the guy is very active, maybe transfer the repo to someone who wants to maintain it.

I could design a new website for torque.

On an unrelated note though is there going to be a section for resources just for torque 2d? u know the way the resources section is split out for like visuals gui etc might be good to have a section for torque 2d as well

I posted this comment because the current site is all indexed and ranked by Google. Big chunk of new visitors will eventually see that page when wanting to know what the engine can do. Showing outdated info is never good; regardless what personal opinions are of long-time T3D users, who never read it in the 1st place.

Surely you could start a new project, but takes time and free time; which is a rare commodity if you ask me

Why not updating the current one and work on a new page in the meanwhile. Popping up a Wordpress page or 2 is peanuts, but before we agree on something a year will have passed and so version 4.0 onto the next.

I know from experience that changing the current website too much is harmful for new visitors, meaning you will get ranked less in the search engine, especially if you remove stuff and create dead links. So you really should change the current site and not create something new, adding stuff is okay, but not removing.
