I've just been bingeing on space battles on Youtube and remembered Freespace and FRED. So I thought I'd give it another whirl and looked up FS2 on Youtube and here I am.
I suppose I'm looking to recreate something like Gratuitous Space Battles in full 3d and fly around during the battle. Like seeing what would happen if humanity and the Vasudans had decided to attack the Sathanases in Capella instead of evacuating; I mean, there were only a few dozen, right?
I'll start a thread about that with some more techie questions in a more appropriate forum.
