Derek Smart wants to Develop FS3
It never really has been consistant.  It's been sort of a "I'll be true to FS style" but with not-so-subtile hints that he'd want to do another freeform with it, which is not at all FS style.  A bit of a conflict, if you ask me, and I don't think he sees it that way.

I'll quote a line from a famous poem...

"...How did it come to this?"

But hell on the flipside this is better than a spanish soap opera. :D

Heh, leave me out of this ;)

Seriously though, for now, I'm content to sit and wait and see what happens. My own opinions are my own, and I expect everyone on here has their own opinion, but I've said my piece for now, on a few forums, about my own personal opinion of the situation. Since I have no information regarding what is really going on, I can't really jump to assumptions about what FS3 is going to be like.
So for now, I'm taking a step back and waiting to see what happens and find whether my hobby will continue to be something that relaxes me, or whether it's time to find another hobby.

I've had enough stress and concern for now, I've never really been concerned about the 'fate' of FS3, if it happens, it happens, but I mod and participate for pleasure, and I have to face it, it's not bringing me much of that at the moment, which is somewhat like the loss of an old friend :(

My final judgment on the thing will depend on the amount of [V] personnel/material he will use...
I mean, with a [V] storyline the software below matters less... I'm sure you get what i really mean ;)

He's said that he doesn't want another BC in the most vague, general terms possible, and then every time he's offered details it's been manifestly apparent that's exactly what he's planning.

Mind, this is the guy who could call Venom a crap-spewing Frenchman and then turn around and get huffy at the suggestion he was being insulting, right after apparently taking mortal offense at someone's suggestion that there might be a minor graphical bug in his engine. His perception of what makes a game a Battlecruiser game- his perception of anything- is deeply surreal.

You know, I couldn't stand by and let that one go unassaulted.  Sorry to burst your little bubble there Derek, but it was INTERPLAY that dropped the ball there.  Yeah, thats right!  YOUR FRIENDS screwed the pooch.  It wasn't Volition's responsibility to publish the game, it was INTERPLAY'S.  If Interplay had actually ADVERTISED the game, it would have sold alot better.  I've talked to people that have played the first game, and never even HEARD of the second one.  I introduced them to it and they were flat out blown away.  In fact, one of them flat out stated that FS2 had the best graphics and gameplay he had ever seen.  This is someone that regularly plays FPS games, completely blown away by a game with (and I quote) "an legacy engine".

For the record, until I heard about this story I had never even HEARD of you, let alone your pathetic "games".  I decided to check up on your reviews and have yet to read a good one.  Freespace2, on the other hand, got RAVE reviews and to this day still has an active fanbase.  Hell, DESCENT still has a very active fanbase, and its been around for what, 10 years now?  I can assure you that after reading what an egotistical dickhead you are, I will not be buying ANYTHING you make or are the least bit involved in.  Same goes for anyone I meet.  Your so-called experience doesn't mean jack **** when you alienate the very fans you're supposed to be catoring to since WE are the only ones that would remotely be interested in your little project.  You obviously never payed attention in any of your business classes.  Don't tell me...you bought your so-called doctoritte online from overseas didn't you?

I may not be working "in the industry", but remember that its people like ME that pay for the games that MAKE your salary.  So go ahead, flex your ego a little more and see how big a check you get next time.  I guarantee you none of it will be from my wallet.

Oh, for those that are reading, I only got to page 10 before I gave up and had to post this.  If someone has already brought this up, or the mods posted a message somewhere in this thread for replies to him to cease, I apologize.  I couldn't sit idly by anymore and let that one go.

Agreed. I'm one of those people. I played the first Freespace and loved it but only got part 2 after several years it was released because I did not know it exsisted.

On that same token, there are still alot of Descent fans that loved the first two, but never even heard of the third (and final) game and it's add-on.

Has everyone made their feelings known now and can we move on?  Come on, this has been a giant farce from the minute it was posted.
