Derek Smart wants to Develop FS3
Am I right to be VERY scared by this news? I've heard some very bad reviews for Battlecruiser Millenium (I have heard from a couple of people who like it though)

http://forums.avault.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=3;t=005485

Can this guy really do better than the awesome work our boys have managed to do to update freespace using the source code

I mean. Look at this. I don't see any indications that he could beat it.



EDIT : Keep it civil BTW guys. It's only a matter of time before he gets pointed in this direction.

I wasn't particularly impressed with anything I saw from the various space combat games he's built.  I don't condem the man for trying but I haven't been impressed and it would take alot for me to be impressed with a FreeSpace 3.  Especially if he goes that "jack of all trades" sorts of crazyness.

A true FreeSpace 3 would have top notch graphics, solid gameplay drawing on the originals and adding new features, strengthened physics (in a gameplay sort of way, not necessarily to bring full newtonian physics), and much improved AI.  You need a full team, a proper development cycle and lots of polish.  I haven't yet seen that.

But hey, they can clone sheep....maybe a good FS3 could come of it....who's to say.

****.

I don't think this is right, true fs3 would require a large scale commercial production. The SCP is the closest thing we should ever have to a non-software house fs3. :(

How about this for Civil, Derick Smart is 'the wrong hands' for the freespace licence. It is the very definition of the worst possible outcome. It can only end in tears.

Does this mean that Interplay are shopping around the licence?

The Freespace gang isn't big enough to scare me


I feel like doing some scaring.... ;)

Seriously though, I'd like to see him beat what the SCP is becoming, maybe we should point that forum in the direction of HLP?

He did some good games, like BCMG and UC, although not enjoyable to everybody...

No one ever saw a game he made that wasn't a jake of all trades, so it might be either pretty good, or terrible... and I doubt he would be making FS3 any time soon, seeing that he has got 2!! games that are still in development... and he asked what if, so I don't see much concerns here... unless he buys the rights.

The thing I think we should be most scared of is the story... how is anyone going to capture that feeling about the first time you see the Lucifer ingame? Or the first seconds of Into the Lion's Den?

Yeah, you have a reason to be afraid of...

Damn it.

If he makes it, we'll never get the story out of Volition. Instead, we'll probably get some butchered up load of contradictory BS as a storyline.

Blah.

Point him to here and make him see all the hard work the SCP people have put into FS2, before considering making FS3 and putting it all to waste.

Otherwise I'd have to say no, mostly due to paranoa and the fact that I don't like trusting total strangers.

Just do what I do to Jurassic Park III.
"Pretend" it's not Canon... Rethinking this, it may be VERY interesting to see the type of engine he uses, hell if it's good we may start a Freespace 2 mod for Freespace 3 :D

Well, we don't know what he would do with it yet. I'm more concerned that he would put 3 years of hard work by Modders in this forum 'out the window' so that he can write it. That would annoy me, because it would be the game that was written 'by gamers for gamers' giving it's own gamers the one-fingered salute :(

If he does that we're just gonna have to invade his board and make his life a living hell with hate mail, email bombs, computer hacks, deleting his personal files from the government systems and kill him at the end...

In any case, we should register there and show off loads of SCP stuff to him. Maybe he'll even hire the SCP staff :p lol
