Hey all! So I am nearly 50 and played Elite on my C64. I am in the great quest to find a great space sim along those lines which won't make me rage quit (Eve Online). So I am going to the MMO forum and see what may be available to a low-end PC user like myself.
I read alot of space opera, write some (not sci fi though) and fish a lot too.
Oh and if you are a fan of metal, especially melodic death, doom or female fronted folk metal.... you're golden in my book!
Welcome to SSC, MetalGrootvader.
I loved my C64 back in the 80's. You could also try Pioneer, Oolite, No Man's Sky there is a bunch more so dive into the forums are read. Have fun and see you in the forums.
Did someone mention Oolite? Welcome to SSC, young'un!
The light at the end of the tunnel is the light of an oncoming train!
And did someone mention Metal Music ??? m/ m/
Melodic death metal is part of my preferences ! Was in the crowd for CoB live in last Download fest in Paris, It was just the best show of the whole fest IMHO
Oh, and welcome to SSC station; D1 forgot to tip off you to be careful with the station cleaning bots 😉
Welcome! I play since 80's when i had an amiga 500, wing commander and starglider 2 were my favourites.
Now the space sim golden age returned....it's great! You have a lot of meat on the fire to play with!
I like symphonic metal: nightwish, xandria you know...and i like also alternative metal like Disturbed.
Welcome to the forums MetalGrootvader.
Thanks guys! No Man's Sky is a bit above my PCs stats so won't be playing. I am going to check out Oolite and Pioneer.
Nev and Natan: Amon Amarth is my favorite band and love their shows. The whole viking and folk metal scene is pretty awesome. I also saw Chidren of Bodom a few years back, great show! Saw Nightwish back in the winter in Columbus OH. One band I have listened to a ton in the past year is Maximum the Hormone. A Japanese band that is just...all over the place.
Can you suggest me some good epic metal bands?
Welcome to the forums, nobody asked yet, so here we go: I read alot of space opera.
Give us your favorites! (:
Nowadays, I listen mostly to proggressive metal/rock but I think I still classify as fan of metal. ^^
Welcome to you MetalGrootvader. A metal fan eh? I am more into classic rock myself, but metal is good too.
Now for some gaming suggestions.
First up Rebel Galaxy, here is a vid, think of it as a space western with Southern Rock music as the backdrop
Its a 2.5D game meaning there isn't any up and down just left, right, forward and backwards movement, but it is fun to play.
Its not an MMO tho.
It's system specs are:
Minimum system requirements - Windows: Vista/ 7/ 8/ 10
Processor: IntelÂ® Coreâ„¢ 2 Duo 2.4 GHz, AMD Athlonâ„¢ X2 2.8 GHz, or higher
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Graphics: Shader Model 3.0, 512MB VRam
DirectX: Version 9.0b
Hard Drive: 2 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c-compatible, 16-bit
Second suggestion is Freelancer, this is an older game so should have modest system requirements.
You should be able to locate a copy on Amazon or Ebay easily enough.
