Mood Space Sim News!

I realize that this isn't exactly a related topic to Sins. However, I feel the need to spread the word all the same, as a space game aficionado.

The recently announced Star Citizen by Chris Roberts (Wing Commander, Freelancer) looks absolutely stunning (youtube it on 1080p, it's actual game engine play, not cinematics). The crowdfunding is open on both robertsspaceindustries.com and kickstarter, for those interested in pledging to get this project out there. It has private funding as well, which will kick in once the crowdfunding goals are reached.

Hope this news (though a little old) spices up your day!

so what did you think? there will even be accomodations for private server setups (a la freelancer) to allow modders to have fun with it. the best ones may even be incorporated into the main game, with revenue sharing on the mod stuff.

but all that aside, the main game looks really, really sweet. if you ever played freelancer and liked it, this is for you. if not, try freelancer ($10 on ebay new, no shipping) and give it a whirl. other than the graphics (2003 game), it still plays fantastic.

It does look really impressive... and yes I played and loved Freelancer. Still have it. I even started to mod it but the a) lack of dev support, b) undocumented formats, c) hard-coded binary based aspects, d) no tools made it not worthwhile.

I'll track it for sure.

If anyone here is interested, check out a group that's forming up here. I like it so far.

FYI, my group and I have all backed SC. We've purchased quite a squadron, and would welcome folks from this site as members, should any of you wish to play a role in a free citizen's squadron. We're going to be focusing on salvage and mining operations initially. Hope to see some of you on!
