Wanted to try a new freespace mod during my one day holiday today. Launched my dice, got 13 and picked Solaris. Wow this thing seems really great work! Everything has been entirely redesigned almost from ground up. I liked the new presentation and detailed ships on briefing screens. Then I put my suit on and went to fly.
First impression was so much shocking, I said "What? why would people want a chasing camera feel like a space flying simulation view? I don't buy it, I'm out of this". I pressed escape and got back in my good ol' cockpit. This was better so I went on playing, much more immersive to me like this.
I play on "trained" difficulty level. Even after tweaking commands to my liking I was hardly able to finish couple first missions, not because it was hard (well it is in some ways) but I found something very painful : AIMING
Jeez! these fighters are moving like mosquitos flying around full of acid! and you always end up chasing a red dot at kilometers far from it's targeted ship, and you must get them down in no time. That's what i call difficult. You guys should have mercy on our joysticks.
Nevertheless Freespace is a so much enjoying game that I think this mod deserves to be tried harder, I'll look for a moving-less spot and see if I can do it. Not telling about graphics because everyone will agree they are still awesome, you guys are doing a really great job, outstanding "Bravo"!
