Welcome to SpaceSimCentral.com

It was a daring move to follow those weak comm signals out this far into space, but you lucked out. You have found SpaceSimCentral, a station that has been tucked away for some time at the edges of our galaxy where only the brave and adventurous travelers dare to go to seek fame and fortune. SpaceSimCentral is one of the last stops before you set off on new adventures in the vastness of deep space. We do get many travelers that tell great tales of merchandise and even things you can get for free if you know where to look. So, finish docking your ship and check-in your valuables and spend some time chatting with the locals on the station and maybe you will discover something you have been waiting a whole lifetime to find.

Enough of the intro, I'm DarkOne the Admin of SpaceSimCentral and we have been around a few years and are striving to become a great source of news, lore and a file repository for your favorite and upcoming space/scifi gaming titles. I have always tried very hard to make SSC a community where both developers and gamers can discuss what they want to see in games and developers can show off what they are working on and get honest feedback from gamers first hand. To all of the developers out there, SSC has always been very accommodating to developers in that we give them free forum space here on SSC to discuss their games with the public. There are quite a few projects going on here at SSC so you might as well join in on the fun as well.

So have fun exploring SSC, the site is going through some major changes and will probably continue to change for the coming months. But this is for the good and I look forward to peoples opinions on what they think and with any luck I can get some members to write up some articles and blogs about their favorite games so I don't have to do all the work. So checkout what SSC has to offer and do register and let us know of any new games or help us out with locating old mods/patches. Enjoy the community and see you in the forums.

Not sure if this a main stream production or a small project that got legs now. But it looks like they going back to original time line and not a continuation of new alternative Star Trek from that last 2.

16 Apr 2015

I've been following SC updates for a while now, and it seems like they want to be pretty much everything -- space sim, FPS, detailed planetary cities, space racing, big space battles, single player, multi player, etc...  


If they eventually get around to officially launching the final product, will all of you be playing SC primarily?  I mean, it seems like they pretty much covered everything? What will be the point of playing any other space sim, especially when SC will eventually be free to play?


I'm curious about whether it will be worth it for game developers to invest tremendous resources to compete in the space sim niche...

Reconnaissance Missions / Surveys

16 Apr 2015

Posted by Kryos In: Pioneer

Hello, forum.


I apologise if this has been asked elsewhere - I couldn't find it if so. I did find the answer to my question on how to use a fuel scoop, though, so that's good*.


I wonder if anyone could give me a hint on how to carry out a recon mission I picked up from a station bulletin board, please. I have an advanced radar mapper fitted, but I don't know how to work it. I can use it on ships no problem, but I don't know how to activate it to scan a planet. Is there a control I missed or is it a set of conditions that will trigger it automatically?


Also, I'm unsure whether the mission requires me to return to the same station I picked it up from to return the data, whether I just need to be in the same system, or whether I can complete the mission without actually going back. I'm on a local recon but have messed around for so long I'm on the last day and won't be able to get back to the station in time, even though it's within the same system. I am not an organised person. :)


I'd appreciate any advice, or a pointer to any previous relevant posts.



* The answer was, in effect: "Do what you were already doing, just at lower, scarier altitude." :)

Jumping to/from 'Sol <--> Ursa Major' mak...

13 Apr 2015

Posted by fox In: Space Force: Rogue Universe

I'm playing Space Force: Rogue Universe.
Patched to version 1.2

I'm in free roam mode.
I'd have no problems to report if it wasn't for one that is occurring with a disturbing frequency: when I travel to/from Sol <--> Ursa Major the game is liable to CTD.

Any idea what might be causing this?

Though I'm not new to the game, the problem is new to me. I played SFRU 1-2 years ago and I used to jump from one system to the other all the time. I don't recall any issue with any system.

But then it was Win XP SP2, 32 bit, 4 GB ram, Dual Core CPU, with an old Zotac GeForce 9800 GTX (512 MB)

Today it is Win 7 SP1, 64 bit, 16 GB ram, Quad Core CPU, and EVGA GeForce GTX 970 FTW ACX 2.0 (4 GB)

In all honesty I don't think my setup has anything to do with it. It may be instead because of the way I've been playing this time around. You see, I'm trying to Ally with all factions.
I keep Pirates and UF enemy so I got something to shoot at, but otherwise all factions but the Collective consider me a friend. This is possible thanks to the missions that have you reactivate Satellites.

Lately I was working on the Draglon faction and I got to Ursa Major to activate an array of Sats there, maybe get more quests while at it.
I've been stuck in Ursa Major since.

Help me.

Can you recommend good survival game, preferably in space?

13 Apr 2015

I recently read "The lost fleet" by J. Campbell and I wish to know if there is a game or are some games which focus on survival fleet of ships or perhaps just one, capital-size ship in hostile environment ? I think about game in which in order to survive you will have to solve social problem in your crew, physical problems (like eating etc.), ships conditions and malfunctions, random events and encounters?
Please respond asap. :) Thanks.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Square Enix can sure make a trailer, they should make a movie using CGI it would be amazing with this action. But here is the next game in the series and so far I like what I see and it will be on all platforms thus far (xbox, pc, PS4).

Unplayable - What gives?

08 Apr 2015

Posted by OldPrivateer In: Starpoint Gemini 2
Was looking forward to jumping into a "new" space sim and my hopes were dashed pretty instantly. My immediate problem is the ship reticle tracking which makes the game totally unplayable. When I move the mouse, the reticle moves instantly like a mouse pointer, but the ship itself, and the small circle in the centre of the screen, set off moving toward the mouse reticle an eternity afterward. It feels exactly like the front of the ship is attached to the reticle by an elastic band. It's pretty horrific. Trying to track a moving ship is next to impossible due to this awful rubber band effect. Why doesn't the ship simply move with the mouse reticle? Is there some setting I have switched wrong?

This probably won't be released until 2016/2017 sometime but it will be nice to play a more up to date version of Star Control. But if you cannot wait you can always play 'The Ur-Quan Masters' here: http://sc2.sourcefor...t/downloads.php

Best Current Space Sims Pls

06 Apr 2015

Ok so . . . . Loved the old Wing Commander and Privateer sims. Adored Freespace 2. Then there seemed to follow a great lull in the space sim genre which was depressing. I filled it partially with Dark Star One but still yearned for something proper. Now the genre seems to be making a comeback. So, could someone please give me a quick lo-down on the best open world space sim games currently around. Bear in mind please I'm not interested in ONLINE MMORPHs like Eve, only interested in single-player games for my PC that I can play offline. Many thanks

Retrieve old saved games in Scout Plus

06 Apr 2015

Posted by walterar In: Pioneer Mods
@pbar1469 say here:
"I can not load the savegames from Scout 21f.
Is there any way to recover the information into 22f? "
This is not possible for now. But with the help of a small script called console.lua, you can start a new game, recovering everything you had before.
Let's try to make it, as an example that others can use.
You must tell me what you want to recover:
Name of ship:
Ship equipment:
Date and time of the last game:
The data included in Personal Information:
Credits ($) available:
Last Space Station:

Pioneer ambient sounds

04 Apr 2015

Posted by Snowmane76 In: Pioneer


First of all, sorry for my bad English!


I'm new to Pioneer and I really impresed with the game, but I noticed the game is too silent.

Navigating into the sounds folder I find various ambient sound files... and this is my question...


Why I can hear only the basic sounds (clics, etc) and not the ambients samples?
