I don’t think we’ll ever see a FL2. I just wish I had the time to learn some C++ because we could get a group together and make one 🙂
That’s the tough part is finding them 🙂 But it is sometimes quite fun trying to track down some of these games. You can always play this while surfing the net to set the mood..

Oh PINBACK added some of your links to the list I will add more later…PINBACK wrote:Nice work on getting the 100 files Darkone and thanks for the hard work you putting in to the site.one thing I would suggest,do you think it’s worth having a news thread for general stuff like release date ect as I see there a new retail release of Eve next month?.
I thought that is what the ‘General Space Sim Chat’ area was for. Should I re-label it to something else or add a new area called Space Sim Scene News or something like that?
Feedback is more than welcomed trying to make this a site where people chat about the best game gender in the world 🙂 So anything I can do to make conversation happen the better it is for everyone else. So keep it coming..
Working on the files I want to add quite a few more I wanted to go on a Demo hunt for space sims and start to get them uploaded or least the most popular ones that is. I have plenty of HD space for the site like 200+ GB its the bandwidth which I can control if needed but so far not an issue.CaptainKal wrote:The site is fine and the people here also. Just do not let it fade away.
It’s getting more people here that will be my issue. Since the site is new it will take some time for people to notice it so I just hope word of mouth helps the site out because got too many kids (5 of them) to spend money on advertising 🙂 But I plan on keeping this running as long as I possibly can. Just for the simple fact I hate trying to find a patch or some mod that I used to play a few years back and cannot locate it. I am hoping I can create a site that can be an answer to that problem and also be a nice spot to discuss all the space games out there. Until I went looking I never knew there was so many
Got a quick message from the developer of this sim and he tells me that you might have to have X3 and Iwar-2 installed since this is a cross-over style mode that will use files from both games. This is a unique concept and will be watching it for some videos of the game play.
Thanks for finding this Starlord. I will add this to the download area tonight when I get home. The work firewall is blocking that site. I must have searched for 2-3hrs on Sat looking for and came up with nothing.
I have most of these in the links area but I will update my list with some of the ones you have compiled here. Great list!
See you have been very busy with some modding projects over the years 🙂 I have been wanting to start one of these sites up for a while and finally just did it. It was a shame to see some good sites fade away and some great mods and info lost forever. I am hoping to build a resource site were people can get info on all the games in the space sim gender and stay informed.
But we’ll see how I do 🙂 Would love any info that people have to share on mods and remember I have a download area and people are free to upload there mods and scripts for all to enjoy.
I plan on sticking around a while … now I just got to get the website out there so I can quit talking to myself in the forums 🙂
Enjoy the site Roo and thanks for your staff in building the Freelancer Network.
Welcome to SSC and thanks for the compliment. Links to all space game/mods and sites are very much welcomed trying to build a nice resource for people that love this game genre to find info on there games. And if the game has enough following I will make it’s own area for it in the forums.
Oh btw your Avatar what is it an image of it looks so damn familiar but I can’t seem to put a finger on where I have seen this. 😕
I have heard good things about Mass Effect. I don’t think there are still any plans to release this one on the PS3 but it looks pretty damn good. But now that EA owns BioWare the PS3 might get a bit more attention. Microsoft throwing there weight around and getting certain exclusives is really a drag sometimes and I know the same is with Sony as well. All game houses need to just make games for all platforms and only the game devs for Sony or Microsoft can make exclusives 🙂
I contacted the author of FurtherTime (Maxim Vorsobine) and asked on the future of FT and here is what he wrote:Quote:
Unfortunately I had no free time to implement new features. Frankly I’m very upset because of this, since some of the features and new ideas were implemented and tested in 2004-2006. This year I started development of the new version. I think in a month or two I’ll update the FT web site with some info and probably demo, I hope.
Well keep your eyes out and see what the new FurtherTime will be like. Remember to check his website for more info: http://www.furthertime.com/
Thanks ThePhorse that fixed my issue. How is the game doing for you have you gotten the downloads/purchases you expected?
Thanks HK I updated the download and the info 🙂
I have always loved FL and go back to it every few months to play a new mod or do some multi-player. I think MS is doing this great community a dis-service with just kicking us aside. I mean they have web browsers and they can see that the multiplayer servers are still up and people making bigger mods every year. make another or release to open source so the modders can really revamp the game.
There are some nice projects coming so check them out…
Game is now released try out the demo here: http://starwraith3dgames.home.att.net/e … nloads.htm
It’s a tough first start. The key is to stay around that first system and mine asteriods to outfit your ship with better equipment and build you bank. Then just hire some mercenaries to give you a hand.
I would definitely check the download area and get the patches for your release because the fixed a few issues with save games and joystick and of course game issues. They really needed to make another patch and finish the mod editor but that didn’t happen 🙁
