"Have you ever felt it was a bit odd that in FreeSPACE the fighters and bombers behaved like aeroplanes? Or been frustrated that the ships’ designers appeared to have forgotten to instal a reverse gear? Have you wanted the craft in FS to move and glide like a Starfury from Babylon 5 and its FS Total Conversion - The Babylon Project? If so, then Project GXYZ is for you."What is Project GXYZ and why is it called this?
Project GXYZ is an addon project intended to enable FreeSpace fighters and bombers to Glide (the ability to fly along a vector independent of which way they are facing) and the ability to move vertically, horizontally and backwards - i.e., the X, Y, and Z axes. And I'm calling it Project GXYZ because the previous sentence doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue 😉How does it work?
Project GXYZ aims to create an easily configurable, risk-free, drop-in / drop-out enhancement to FSO’s flight mechanics, by leveraging simple tables and command line references.
The video below shows it in action: Like what you see? Then please see the linked How To Guide and FAQs to see how you can have this too.
So far, I have created GXYZ mods for:
FS1 + ST: R
FS2 and BP – (not sure if this overwrites the 'introns' thing in AoA – needs further testing and the Vishnan ships haven’t been done yet).
I have also created versions for:
These will be released once the in-progress updates of these campaigns have been released publicly to avoid spoilers, and in case these updates require a new ship table.
I plan to create versions for Shadow Genesis, BTA, Scrolls, Inferno, and the other campaigns that use non-canon ships throughout the year as I get around to them. (I'll upload them when they are ready and then share the links.)
