For me, It works like this: If its good, great news! we'll be able to expand even more on the Freespace universe. If its bad, Then **** it, its not real, wasnt made, never happened, blah blah blah, I cant hear you. Basically Jd's idea.

I've played some of Smarts games, like BM gold, and I liked it for the most part, so maybe he can pull it off. As long as he doesnt do the one thing that really puts me off about his games: Make it so freaking complicated that after the first month or so I completely give up on understanding (and playing) it.

I don't think the kind of games he's made in the past are at all close to the feel of Freespace. If he's going to continue developing Freespace with his "style" then I'm pretty sure it won't be worthy of calling Freespace 3.

Rictor, please refrain from doing that, no matter how tempted you get. I think this is kind of a paradox, we've been waiting for this moment for years, almost abandoning all hope and now we are all worried about what might become of it.

I may have the whole HLP turned against me as the effect of this post, but I feel I should write it down: I think we should not be afraid unless we actually get it and it is definitely worse than FSO.

Heh, I've been looking forward to Mindgames or Machina Terra more than FS3 to be honest,

Give him a chance to speak, he'll be here shortly...
You forget that freespace is not that popular, so it's more that likely he's a fan, like us :)

This will be more akin to Fallout:Tactics, than Freeespace 3, in essense, he'll take the universe and make his own kind of game out of it, where we've on the GTVA Something, wandering the galaxy.

Isn't it popular? I thought it was only relatively unpopular in the middle Europe(or only in Hungary. :nervous: )

Its not that I think he can't make a decent game. Well, I do sort of thing that also, but its not that. Its just that, if it ain't Volition, it ain't Freespace.

He could maybe make a good game fro the license, but it wouldn't be Freespace. Doesn't matter if its Derek Smart of John Carmack or anyone, it just wouldn't be the game we all know and love.

They're making something from someone else's code base. They have their own plans, ideas, goals and whatnot - none of which will ever reach the critical mass that would warrant a full retail effort. Ever.

I have absolutely NO intentions of using ANY of the Freespace2 source code because its legacy and its just going to be trouble from the word go. My plan - if I get it - is to start from scratch with a clean slate and only the Freespace mythos, backstory and assets (e.g. the ship types, names, dimensions etc) as a starting point.


Bloody hell.

methinks some of you guys are focusing a wee bit too much on "OMFG its not [V] WHY OH WHY!" instead of how the game'll turn out...
Also, you guys do realize this all hinges on whether he gets the liscence or not, right?

Well, remember, he's a 'cut throat, no holds barred, no mercy' business man, he's trying to make this community sound like a half-confused muddle for his own gain.

After his comments on Adrenaline, I wouldn't touch his game with someone elses bargepole.
