+++ FreeSpace Card Game +++
I know that there were few attempts too do one, but as far I can see all them were... just attempts (nothing more nothing less)  :)

Its time for mine.

Basic idea for game is that you are supreme commander of fleet one of species creating FS universe (Terran, Vasudan and ofcourse Shivans). You will create your own fleet from available cars. For first release each side will get 50 unique cards sets in 4 types (units, equipment, orders, events). Units divide into two mine types: Wings of Fighters/ Bombers and Capital Ships, there are also Installations. Equipment cards divide into three types: single use, multi use (both for attach too unit cards) and technology. Orders are hmm... just orders that you give your units in battle :). Same with events.

All cards, boxes for them and instruction will be create in best print quality (300dpi) downloadable from game site.

As you can see in attachments cards will use pictures from real game. I need lots of them, so here is my request:
If you have time do screen shots from game please do it and post theme in this topic. Those that help me most in  this task will be reward  entry into credits in instruction :D
It would be good if picture you're about to take would a little common with card names/abilities. Also that they were do in best quality that SCP gives :P

Any comments and questions are most welcome.

Three Q's

1) Can we see a proper picture of that Shivan "logo" on the card backs?

2) And I love those effects on the cards. Are you able to do this for proper FS2 interfaces?

3) Do we play over MSN?

I can help you with screenshots... Just post a list of screens you need (in the card list you posted I found no info about already available screens). I really want to play a FS based card game ;7 Maybe mixed with Dark Revenant X's cards :lol:

BTW, [grammar inquisition]it's flak, not flack[/grammar inquisition] :nervous: *runs*

@colecampbell666
Well it should be simple and recognizable, you will see it only in few places.

@Mobius
Rules are written only need translation, or all you can now start learn polish  ;7

Few basic rules:
To play game you need 60 card deck. Not like in others games you don't have to ( but you might) gather resources. At the beginning of each turn you receive 20 command points that you can spend on anything. Turns are divide in 4 separate parts; Start  phase where you equip your units and remove damage counters from them. Move phase in witch you move your units from Fleet Zone to Battle Zone and reverse. Battle Phase where your units fight and end phase.
To win game you must remove from command your enemy. To do that you have to gather 200 victory points (optional)  by destroying enemy units. Second victory condition is that one of player lose all cards from deck.

@TrashMan
Ares - Terrans don't need tanks in space... for now :P

Actually there are 3 Cvs from mods i add them to balance fleets. All sides in game had lacks of medium size capital ships.

You can always have even more ship cards (custom ships) for a booster pack of sorts.

And the potato must be in. Potatoes rule. Potatoes of death even more so

Well.. i can't see booster idea in free game witch any part of it you can download at any time. Booster packs are desinge to take from you money  ;)

In time there will be more ships and other cards. I would like to see each species had more than 100 cards for use + hybrids.

Re: +++ FreeSpace Card Game +++
Is "VED Hatshepsut" in the Polish translation? GVD Hatshepsut is more common, it's in English FreeSpace at least. Just in case anyone asks you later.

All is ok because its: Vasudan Empire Destroyer not Galactic Vasudan Destroyer :). In game GTVA is spread to two fractions.
