Yea, the I-War games were good, but they were not the only space sim (post FFE) to have physics. There was Terminus as well and that was a damn fine game. <img src="' http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//nyam.gi f"' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' />

There are links all over this forum eran100, also check out the download area, its packed with goodies. A good place to start would be FFE3D. There is a whole bunch of stuff to be found in that file, check it out. http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/files/category/41-ffed3d/

Also Oolite is well worth a look http://www.oolite.org/about

And finally, Pioneer http://www.moddb.com/games/pioneer

And of course if you can live without the commerce or story kind of game, Orbiter is a hardcore space simulator, free and it is evolving for a lot of years. It borns as the hobby of a scientific and now is very popular.

It is crude and only windows based. The learning is long and the quantity and quality of addons is huge.

It has details like newtonian physics in the solar system, nonspherical gravity sources, radiation pressures, gravity gradient torques, and atmospheric wind effects. On vanilla it uses a very basic d3d7 engine but the images and graphics are very close to reality, other two graphic clients (d3d9 and d3d11) are now being tested, and an opengl client with procedural terrain generation was developed by

Artlav, the guy behind spaceway project.

Greetings.

Your spot on Gudadantza. Orbiter is as hard core as can be and all the better for it. Yes its extreme, but thank goodness for extreme game like this. Oh and what are you doing here Gudadantza ? I thought you would be in a dungeon someplace <img src="' http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//wink3.gi f"' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
