What the **** are you talking about? I'm trying to donate some of my hard earned cash, so my favorite series can live on in glory, instead of ending up like trash in Derek Smarts peice of **** hands.

I don't understand why you are saying this. :confused:

I used to write reviews for a magazine. Suffice to say, this will make a very, VERY, VERY interesting rewiew, might just earn me $$ to donate to the effort if im lucky :)

I say that becose
a) he starts posting in a troll like manner, something that someone over there would love to quote to make us look bad, not that we didn't do a very good job of that on our own.
b) I saw someone on that forum post something to the likes of "I see they've started a colection, don't they know that's stupid and doomed to failure" minutes before he posted his "were's the donation thread"

if I am wrong and you are not a troll you could help your case by editing your inital post.

i'd agree with this.
not badmouthing the SCP (they've done a very good job so far)
and considering how loaded the derek smart topic is (quite frankly, i found the BC series downright confusing & boring to boot)

but it'd have to *be* made by Volition to be Freespace 3, and feel like it to..

it wouldn't be the same..

to all the guys at volition.... GET THE RIGHTS TO FREESPACE!  :nod:

Wow, thanks for placing your trust in me.  I'm surprised and rather honored that you would even say something like that.

In reality though, I don't think I'm the right person to be creating FS3.  In my opinion, the core gameplay of the Freespace series is based on the way the story weaves through the tightly scripted missions.  I'm certainly not that good of a mission designer to create a game with a scripted campaign like the one in FS2.  While I'd jump at the chance to work with Mike Kulas and the rest of the Volition team if they did a sequel, I would never try to create one on my own.  I don't know where the story goes next anymore than you guys do.

My goal has been to create a game that sits alongside Freespace as a variation on a theme.  A game with great combat, but using a dynamic campaign engine and a persistent order of battle to explore space warfare in a different way.

I think that if the game is taken up by a professional developer, than the matter is mostly out of our hands. But, if it comes down to any sort of fan effort, you'de be an asset of inestimable value.

Considering that you basically made, completely by yourself from what I know, a game who's quality is very nearly on par with $20 million budget, AAA games, and a space sim to boot, Derek Smart, or indeed pretty much anyone here with the possible expection of a few programmers/artists, ain't got nothing on you.

Starshatter is original, fun to play, has graphics that rival more or less any space-sim in existance today, including Battlecruiser 3000 (or whatever the latest one is) and Freelancer, and is moddable in a way other games can only dream of. Game rights aren't worth much without a game, and if it comes to making an actual game, there are few people in the industry I would rather have as a consultant/programmer/advisor/well-wisher than you.

this all sounds like ass-kissing, but I do genuinly believe what I said.

You know, I've come to regard Derek Smart as Kazan's evil stupid twin.

But I digress.....

Y'all need to stop acting like the NMA crowd. Granted, that won't change the fact that Derek is being a **** and, given his history, probably will continue to be, but still. It's annoying me, and it's not exactly gonna get you anywhere. A simple "Thanks, Derek, but we're doing fine on our own- since you're apparently a fellow fan who's going to an effort to revive the game, feel free to help out with Ferrium if you like." could have ended all this **** here and now, with none of these preposterous threats of lawsuitage and no real change of plans.

Still, better late than never. Be civil next time. It's hard, but honestly none of your flames were clever enough to compensate for the fact that, both here and at Avault, HLP ended up looking every bit the gaggle of ****cakes Derek's little sycophant cluster did, and until you come up with a few damned good ones stow 'em, or put 'em in a special hate thread or something. If anything ends up hinging on shoring up public sympathy (like raising cash to try and get the license), you'll be glad you passed on the coke machine reference.

Oh, yeah, and milo for President. Yeah.

Wow...I leave HLP alone for ONE day and I come back to a 389 reply thread in 24 hours.

Well...hell I dont care who has it...if the game is decent and accomplishes my hopes for a Freespace 3, I'll bite.

And I went to bed and found this when I woke up (first thing I do every morning: check HLP :D )

I can't say I like the news of Derek Smart possibly making FS3. I mean, when I heard Bethesda was going to make Fallout 3, I was happy. Why? Because Bethesda made Morrowind (a very good game) and they seem to have exactly the right attitude on making the game great.

I've never played any of Smart's games (tried a demo, didn't even work), but from the reviews I've read they really don't seem that great. And his attitude? Frankly, the worst of HLP is better.

Still, I'm rather optimistic about this. If Smart ever gets FS3 done, it might be great. The signs just aren't that good. I'll reserve mu judgement until I've playd the game.
