Ok, I'm sorry, but the mere notion that the only way to create campaigns is by adhring to the original Freespace universe is just stupid. You can change every single aspect of the universe to create your own universe. And it doesn't even have to be with an entire fleet of new ships. Just a new story.
Are people's minds really so dense they can't see beyond the FS universe? I certainly hope not. When the time comes that the FS universe has been creatively exausted we just move on and use OUR OWN ideas. Or are we stuck in this mindset that we must, without exception, use the original FS storyline as the basis of our concepts? Again, I certainly hope not.
I'm sorry but i find that a huge pile of bull**** that modding will die out. If people can't bring up the creativity to create something of their own and look beyond the obvious, my expectations of the creativity of this community are highly overrated.
But on another note, I doubt that the FS universe is no longer open to new storylines. Far from it.
Just my 2 cents...
