So will it be called Freespace 3 or not? If your gonna do what it sounds like, and in essense, do one of your typical, explore the universe games with lots of complicated controls in FS, its not really a direct sequal. Its more of a say, Freespace: Universe or something, a spin-off, not a true homage to the original.

Indeed...is it just me, or does that blue-and-gold thingy look like a Freespace fighter? :D

Ahem... carry on. ;)

BTW in case people we didn't notice we've smashed the previous record for the largest number of people online by another 20 people :)

I guess people consider this somewhat important :D

You now who should make the game (other than [V] or HLP itself?)

Braben. I think he'd do well. He could actually turn it into a large-scope game (as BC tries to) and have it be easily accessible yet deep. After all, this is the man who created 'Elite' and was awarded godhood because of it ;)

seriously: FS is about fighters first and foremost, it's family of Wing Commander and X-Wing/Tie-fighter in that respect. Roamin freel through the FS universe might be all fine and dandy (and yes, it would be a cool thing to have a privateer-style game in the FS universe) but something like that wouldn't be FS3 really. Just like the original Wing Commander Privateer wasn't WC3

But Braben is such an Anal Retentive it takes him 3 days to digest a meal :( He surfs the Net telling people to remove everything vaguely Elitish that he finds. He makes A.K. Rowling look like Shareware!

Braben is already working on Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 & Elite 4, IIRC

You know, unlike many people in this thread, I'd probably buy it, assuming it wasn't trashed in the reviews. Realistically, what other space sim games are you going to spend your money on?
