Rage mod tools "real soon now", a frustrated Carmack says

"I think we have made poor decisions on this all year."

Rage mod tools are coming soon, id Software's John Carmack has said.

They were supposed to ship alongside the post-apocalyptic first-person shooter in October 2011 - a year ago - but failed to materialise.

According to Carmack, id's work on Doom 3: BFG Edition shoved Rage mod tools to the side, but now all that's done with, they will be released.

In a tweet the id co-founder expressed his frustration at the delay, and admitting to making mistakes on the issue.

"BFG work pushed the Rage tools, but Real Soon Now. I hope. Sigh. I think we have made poor decisions on this all year," Carmack said.
