Added your games to the master list AcesHigh.
I will be checking out that link for Angels Fall First. Looks good at first glance. Like a EVE and Nexus style game.
CPU: Core2Duo 6420
HDD: 1x 120 and 2x300GB
Gfx Card: MSI GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB
Snd Card: Fatal1ty Extreme 64MB
Input/Joystick: Mouse/Keyboard … Joystick broken 😥
I thought about upgrading this year but will more than likely do it next year after reading the min/max system requirements of some upcoming games.
Welcome to SSC and everyone here thinks the same way about Space Sims and there are a few good ones to look out for that are coming down the pike. Look forward to your posts in the forums.
What Space Sims have you played?
Here is another one that gives a little background

Thanks Jabberwocky and I’ll try to give you as much free publicity as possible. Jabberwocky with leaving your job almost 2yrs ago do you do side projects or are you eating pork n beans solely to finish Salvation Prophecy? 🙂
If people go to your website (http://www.salvationprophecy.com) and offer up their services to give you a hand are you looking or willing to take the free help?Jabberwocky wrote:I obsess over little graphical details. I still consider myself a “gameplay guy”, but a couple years ago, I never would have imagined myself spending a week straight getting the shadows in a game to look just right.
Unfortunately people are very visual these days and sometimes the gameplay does take a backseat to the graphics in most games. And with graphics generally taking the longest in a game will the Orge3D engine keep the game current enough throughout development?
I have a PS3 at home and I often pay $5-10 for a downloadable content or small games and those developers do fairly well. Have you thought about porting your game to play and be distributed on xbox live or playstation network? You would get huge exposure and it could give you time to work on the continuation of the game while getting payed by thousands of players. Just a thought…. I know the developers behind No Gravity are releasing there PC based game for the PSP and doing quite well with it since its release last week.
I do hope over time SSC becomes popular with players and developers alike to talk about and get feedback for games and projects in the space sim scene. I hat the fact that I see it dying a little each year and even reviewers of more recent games say this genre is just about dead. It’s glad to see a few brave soles trying to keep this type of game alive so thanks Jabberwocky!
You might be able to get into the The Black Prophecy and Jumpgate Evolution Beta’s since they are coming very soon. I actually cannot wait to try these because in a way these are the only space sim type games coming that I know of. I don’t know of any official commercial space sim product being developed right now that is a single player game.
Thanks for this CaptianKal
It will be nice to see people playing E&B online again. I know when I tried this emulator out a year ago it was single player online if I remember correctly and there was a lot of editing you had to do to get it to work.
I just saw something on TV about this new movie called 2012. Not sure if it is going to suck or not but I wonder accurate they stay to the myth?
Oh goodness I am getting old Pinback 🙂 I feel like that was just a few years ago that I played the original WC. I hope the do mark it with an announcement that they will be releasing a new WC to the series. That would be great!
I contacted Jabberwocky the main developer and he said he would field some questions and here is the post I created here so ask your questions and I will get them added and I will add my own. He also joined the site so you might see your answers fairly quickly.
Crap these imbedded images are messing up my style 😯 only on Firefox so far. I have to find some way to fix that.
Some of those images look sweet btw 🙂
Think I read somewhere that they are thinking about making a X3: Terran Conflict 2.0? Can anyone confirm that one?
Games like Hardwar that are on planets are still futuristic in nature so I will include them. I think I already started a small write up on Hardwar and think I downloaded the ISO (which is free I believe now) still debating whether to upload it to the server since its a hefty 500+ MB.
I don’t see why not add other space style games like 2D when the 3D games are pretty much done. This will be an on going project for a while so if anyone has any in-depth knowledge of a certain game please let me know and I will grant people access to the wiki and let them edit away 🙂
Does that mean I won’t see you in Jumpgate Evolution when it hits the stores? Not too many SP only games coming out Pinback. But I have to admit some of my most memorable times were playing the SP only Wing Commander series… I still cannot believe they let that series die off.
Wiki is up and looking for feedback on it before we start the editing 🙂
I did some looking on that game in the works ‘Salvation Prophecy’ and it is looking pretty good. Here is some basic info on the game and people can go and check it out and give him some motivation to hopefully finish this project and the orge3d engine looks nice.
And the only video I could find and it shows off a lot of gameplay.
Kal, have you tried this one out? I was in the beta and played a bit of E&B a few years back and liked it. I thought the emulator is only to simulate the single player experience is that right or did they finally get a multiplayer server running? Instead of just closing the game and calling it quits they should have released the source to let the community take over.
For those that never heard of this title, check this out:
Parkan 2 which I think you used to able to get the English ver from steam?.
Was Parkan 2 ever released in USA? I can’t seem to find it anywhere and is there a version in English?starlord wrote:Glad to know I helped then! Might you be able to post a few screens? One of the principle characteristics identifying star wraith (1) is the lack of cockpit (ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â la WC4). Also, I do believe that screens and possibly a demo/incomplete version of this was contained in the original darkbasic creator. 😉
I can’t seem to find some screenshots online and I tried to capture some with different ‘Print Screen’ options and nothing I will work on getting some to put into the post that I made.
