The exploration is the biggest selling part of this game for me as well Spacemonkey. If it is done right and the I-Novae engine can handle the massive scale and still have the eye candy it will be amazing.
Christian Bale has done well with Batman but I think they should have given this role to someone else personally. But I hope he does well with it, I just wanted to see a new face in that role since they were starting anew.c0mas wrote:Quote:It’s amazing that all the space sims ever created there is a little bit of everything that people want in each one and if there was a game that included 60% of all these features it would be a huge fan favorite for years.
Well … it’s quite hard to please everyone 🙂
C0mas I’m sure Heresy War will please us. With modding being added to Heresy that is definitely a plus. Let your community build your content. Look what has happened with FL and FS. Modders have done great things without real modding tools for FL and FS is now open source. I think that is a big reason why Valve is so successful with their games because they open them up to modding and they hang around forever.
Forgot about the cap ship battles. The Ewoks took away from that movie a bit for me. But by far movies 4,5 & 6 are the best even without the updated special effects and huge budgets.
Thanks for the praise Xntrik.
I have never heard of Beyond Protocol. Did a quick lookup on that and I will add a link to that game in my link list and will update that next week sometime. Not sure when I will have time to install and play around with it but if you have some experience with it please feel free to give everyone the low down.
My main focus for the site is to try to be a hub for the space sim genre. And get the knowledge and links out to everyone so they can see all the space sim/rts/arcade games that are out there and most of the time its free.
Thanks for stopping by Xntrik and look forward to more posts I thought I knew a fair amount about some space games but there are some people here that really know there stuff 🙂
I am downloading the game now and will let people know what I think about it after playing it for a while. Thanks for the heads up on Pirate Galaxy.
I cannot wait until the JGE Beta and I hope I get in there but at the least we will not have to wait long since it will be released in June.
I could see that as being a fault I think discovery of each sector would have been better personally. What was weird I thought is that they give you a sector map that is only uncovered as you travel. But it serves on real purpose since you have reference points to the machine spots. And you get those when you enter the sector.
The mapping could have been better. I do like the hacking, which they could have made a bit more in depth and I have been killed by a few meteor showers. I know now I hear that voice prompt I run 🙂March 21, 2009 at 9:07 am in reply to: What do you want to see in Infinity: The Quest for Earth? #63193
Yeah the archologist could find artifacts to sell for big $$$ or break them down into very rare crafting materials. Same with the big game hunter there could be parts of the creature that when processed was a very rare crafting material and which you could sell for $$. Nevermind the fact you could sell your info on when these creatures were.
With Infinity giving you the ability to land on planets and things like that it really opens up a huge amount of potential.
Now that is a great idea… I mean that is what builds immersion. Knowing that would slacked off and did partake in a battle or mission and something happened now affecting the sector or race relations.
It’s amazing that all the space sims ever created there is a little bit of everything that people want in each one and if there was a game that included 60% of all these features it would be a huge fan favorite for years.
You and me both. I am just hoping I can get invited to the beta. One because it is really the only other offering that is close to release atm and I want to see how the game is setup. Because there are other options coming and Black Prophecy looks very good as well.
What I am mainly wanting info on is ships, equipment, crafting and modifications.
Hey Lancer you might be interested that some of the fansites have the ISO’s for download.
I haven’t tried to install it yet since I have Vista on my machine but it is saved away. I found that the company is no longer in existence and the publisher isn’t either. Just trying to find the official notice that it can be distributed and I will upload it to my download area.
Welcome to SSC Talisman. Doing my best here now I just need to get the word out more. But with the site only being 3 months old it is doing fine. Trying to breathe some new life into the gender and to show the devs there is still a huge gaming community out there.
Look forward to your posts!
Updated Phoenix Mod to the latest version.
I actually have it on my PC now and was playing it yesterday it is very much a shame that they didn’t finish the mod tools and get involved with the community. Because at first there was a good amount of people wanting to mod the game but that died off after the JoWood didn’t support the game much.
Game companies don’t understand if you are going to put out a Single Player game you must either ad some nice mod tools or come out with a multi-player client/server addon to keep the game going.
I have liked the game and maybe I will post some of more screenshots once I get further in the levels because the visuals are quite nice.
Welcome to SSC brrm. Freelancer is definitely a good place to start but nothing beats starting with Elite and WC Series. But here I go showing my age again. There are some games and projects being worked on I have most of them in the threads some where so have fun looking around and if you find a Space Sim that needs some attention please let us know about them.
Hmm… you have Terran Conflict 2.0 plus the X3 Gold edition coming. I might pick this up after it comes out to give X3 another whirl. I know I got bored played X2, I hoped they fixed all that. I don’t mind some empire building but I don’t want to have that be my sole purpose in the game.I also would like to get into some good combat and space exploration.March 13, 2009 at 9:28 am in reply to: What part of the world or universe to you hail from? #62822
Wow. I have never seen so mant high buildings in one place 🙂 Or least that video made it look that way. NH only has like 1.3mil people in the entire state and that’s mostly in the southern part the northern part isn’t really populated.
Sao Paulo looked familiar to me when you wrote it but besides that never heard of it. I need to get these kids out of the house so I can travel more.AcesHigh wrote:
If the mayans had any reason at all to make calendars spanning several millenia, they would do it. They did not. Thus, they only made calendars till the year (sun cycle) which corresponds to christian year 2012. Maybe if the mayans had not disappeared they would update their calendars with another cycle.
Could it be that simple the person in charge of the calendar writing said screw it we aren’t going to live that long as a race 🙂
I have always wanted to visit these areas personally and see what happens during that galactic alignment that will happen. Do I think the word is going to end? No. But it would very interesting to see if this day has any merit at all or if it is just some date hyped to make money off of it.
And I agree with Pinback if they release Elite 4 on that date and something does happen I will be pissed.March 12, 2009 at 5:47 pm in reply to: What part of the world or universe to you hail from? #62820
🙂 We have a lot of small towns nothing really to look at guess that’s why we have the lowest crime rate in the nation. That I think is beginning to change because a lot of bad elements are moving into the state from other states and crime is going up a bit.
In July/August what is the avg temp in Brazil AcesHigh? Here in NH it will avg 75-85.March 11, 2009 at 10:07 am in reply to: What part of the world or universe to you hail from? #62818
I will have to visit Brazil sometime 🙂
