Sorry,let me rephrase it

Why don't they release the code for FFE already,it's pretty old game.

I don't think they can add new features to it if they don't have the original code right?

Well I think it would be up to Frontier Develoments to release the original code as they are the copyright holder of it.

From reading the EG forum i think there intention is to remove all of Frontier code then add new feature to the game as they go.

And yes by they i meant David Braben & Co (Frontier Developments).

So Pinback you mean that the EG guys are working with an emulator of sorts?

Don't they work with the original FFE code?

I don't know,the best place to ask would be the English section of the EG forum.

Potsmoke the models on that website are they free to use or do you need to contact the creator for each model you want to use?

i think they are free to use, they take no fee for the download, maybe for commercial use? i think no they don't own the publishers rights, so no commercial use without permission from lucasfilms, in case of star wars (etc).

SCIFI 3D Voluntary "Gift/Donation" Policy:

In order to combat theft of the sites models by others who try to sell them we are going to submit our models to commerical websites. They will still be FREE as always. Our community is full of honest people with alot of integrity, and they are adiment that models remain FREE. Therefore we are going to submit our models to places like TURBOSQUID as FREE to combat theft. Nobody will pay the theives for something that we offer for FREE. This should effectively stop this internet crime. However, if you want to support SCIFI 3D or the 3D COMMUNITY we are going to start accepting gifts/donations. This is a totally VOLUNTARY system. Nobody is required nor expected to pay for any model from this site, unless otherwise noted. If you decide you do want to give a gift for the site/community please do not send less than $1 US. Due to various fees, costs of postage, foreign curreny conversions, etc. it may cost more to send your gift than the total value of the gift. It depends on the type of transaction. The various options will be covered below. Please also note there are no other miniumum or maximum amounts a gift has to be, much less give one at all. It is up each individual what they want to do, if anything. Here is information on the different ways to send something and the pros and cons for each. I have investigated this as much as I could and I'm still collecting information so it may not be 100% accurate yet.

i'm surprised it looks like some have takin' money for it allready (thiefs) 😯

anyway we can be glad that companies like lucasfilms doesn't interprete copyrights like the music industry does.

cause all this game modding and hacking and model interchange is if you look at it from their pov a form of copyright injury (a soft one 😉 ).

no problem, go to their site, register, thats all http://www.scifi3d.com/list.asp?intGenreID=10&intCatID=10

but be warned, the models are all high-poly (compared to ffed3d and any game standarts) and would need a lot of rework to use for ffed3d, by myself i thought it would be easier to build them low-poly from ground up if you take a good drawing of the model as template.

i will post here some iso drawings of models is soon as i gathered them.

just to make you curious

[attachment=96:cobramk1_s1.jpg]

[attachment=98:cobramk1_s2.jpg]

added some texture replacements in dowload section

including, a new "Times" font (Lynx), blue explosions (check out!), and all textures as shown in Frontierimages as .png files for you to use as reference or to flush it dd. 😀

th_blue-explosion.gif

to get the Frontier Dev. Symbol on your ship, you need to hack the .exe (sorry), take jongwares frontiermeshes as guide search for the text command and replace the 06 for line font (size6) with 26 (Times font, size6).

use the % (25h) symbol for the "Frontier Dev. Saturn"

for further info, check this out

Anyone have new textures or models they want added to the updated FFED3D Complete package? Updating it right now and will have it done shortly. Not too many new items since the last build but there will be 2 new models and some added textures. Plus I am updating the mod manager to latest version, updating the readme.txt and adding the latest BUFFET version (maybe i'll get v3.0 before I upload)?

So just post here with links to textures, music or models you want added to the package.

Last call...

This weekend I will post my latest compiled package for FFED3D so if you have any recommendations to be added please do post them. I have included anything new from the elite games site so have all of those.

Potsmoke... I was looking at a few of your models and fixes any that you recommend go into the package?
