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.

some of you may know me as the progammer of "Cosmic Explorer". However, a while ago I discovered a new hobby: Stop Motion with Lego bricks or brickfilms in short. So for all who are fond of space exploration similar to STAR TREK, I created the series FUTURE BRICKS, showing the adventures of a team crossing the universe while seaching and delivering rare parts. The team is an experienced captain (Asko), an unexperienced navigator (Claude), a clever alien engineer (Nigosch), a female astrobiologist and doctor (Linda) and a robot (T4C2, often just called "T4"). In the first episode, they are not complete yet and get to know the robot, but then they will have lots of adventures together. Currently, there are just two episodes, but more will follow (stop motion needs a lot of time for creation):
Episode 1: "The Secret Of The Scrap Planet"
Episode 2: "The Strange Asteroid Rain"
The language is acutally German, but the subtitles show the English translation, so it should be easy to understand for people who do not speak German as their mother tongue.
P.S.: I am not a Youtube partner, so I will not get any money from higher click rates. I do this just for fun.

Is out today. http://www.gratuitou...cebattles2.com/
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.

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...

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."

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.

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).

Here is some info that I found on a possible Star Control reboot in the making.
Check out these links here for more info:
Project Update - http://forums.starcontrol.com/462599
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
