    Haha well if I sell my mac, I wont be able to use it for my university work (since they gave it me with my course) or for producing music lol. The annoying thing is that I do actually have a desktop PC, but the PSU blew itself up a few weeks ago and the suppliers are still waiting for replacements to come in 🙁

    I guess with some patience then I will be able to wait for my new PSU, start up XP (provided nothing else fried too) and load up FFED3D 😀

    I also love what the Russians are doing for this old game but I can’t help but wish that they could do something about the terrible flight system. Combat in FFE is still a joke. Still, if you can get past that it really is a gorgeous mod. Dammit, now I want to play it with all the new ships and models in. I think my weekend is going to be a busy one!

    I dont think its as bad as it was in Frontiers.Now that was bad,especially the auto pilot which would

    take every opportunity to slam you into planets,ship and station. 😆

    You need to ask the guys on the EG forum for that answer,if the have any planes to change the combat

    model.

    Have a look at the FAQ posted above.and in the FFED-3D file after you have installed it.some of the

    controlls have changed.

    As you are doing a music course,have you thought about reworking some of the game music?.

    I’ve not really thought about it to be honest no, but thanks for putting the idea into my head 🙂 I actually did some work for Egosoft, writing the music for X3 Terran Conflict and the trailer music etc. The thing I like about the Frontier music though is the nostalgia value. Even though I couldnt play the game on my mac, I could still play the mp3s in the music folder and hearing the main theme, re-rendered, sent a shiver down my back 😀 but yeah, once my PC is back up and running then I’ll have a little dabble and see what I can do.

    Nice Woffin.

    They have a music thread on the EG forums.

    If I was forced to admit to it. 😆

    There are a couple of thing I do like about the X games.and some of the music tracks is one them.

    Theres an interesting discussion on the EG forum about the look of the starport buildings and citys

    looks like the gurken has got a mention.

    I think Frank Lloyed Wright designs would fit very well to the game.

    And to be a proper city you need the Megacity 1 look 😀

    Looks like there might be a new ship comeing out soon.

    Hey, is anyone else finding downloading this (ffed3d_v112b_244.zip) a complete nightmare? It never goes faster than say 45kbps, and it never gets beyond say 70% or so without failing. Is there a solution or another download link?

    Thanks in advance for your help folks.

    That Megacity looks great, if that could ever be converted into reality that would be very impressive.

    Hi Capo

    I just retested the download from my machine and download completed successfully with a download rate of 49k-113k per sec.

    I would recommend getting a download manager/helper like getright or orbit to help you out if your browser is timing out.

    Remember to download all the patches as well.

    Decided to change the background pic unfortunately it makes the other screen hard to see.

    Iam pretty sure there was a number of different backgrounds in the original game.

    Indeed there were, about six of them. The program chose which one to display depending on which kind of ship you owned.

    I personally prefer the system in D3D, where you can choose your own picture.

    Just drag the folder into the model dir of FFE3D.Make sure the folder is named “230”

    Theres one on mars if you want to see the Eiffel Tower.

    The guys over at FFE3D are looking for ideas or sketches,so if you have anything which may fit in with

    the game head over to the EG forum.

    Im not 100% sure where to post this but hopefully someone here will point me in the right direction, but how do i install the FFED3D onto my system, any help in either endeavour will be much appreciated

    Actually pretty easy Merrick

    1. Download the game: downloads.php?cat=37

    2. Run the main installer and then the patches (believe I put in a readme)

    3. Your all set at this point. Now if you want to install some new ships download the ones you want.

    4. If you read on the download screen it will tell you which folder the new models will go into in your MODELS directory.

    5. Then start the game and have fun.

    If I missed anything someone else fill the blanks 🙂
