No doubt, you were very lucky, but I think Tim also managed to impress everyone by telling us about an authentic possibility of FS3. His grasp of writing skills also no doubt impressed everyone sufficiently to keep from flaming him.

After all, it's difficult to insult someone you're in awe of. Ascraeus, it seems like you and your son are the best chance the FS community has of seeing an FS3-like product. No doubt, that has garnered you and your son a fair amount of respect from all of us.

I know that the Volition guys swore off the VBB because of all the crap over there. And I've been wondering how long corporate at THQ would put up with the VBB free-for-all.


Has anyone every thought of extending a personal invitation to V-people to look in on us from time to time over here? Participate a little, perhaps even under an "assumed identity," after work? My impression was that some of them had many regrets about the demise of FS after v.2.

Naturally, if the VBB closes FS2, we'll be playing *Freespace 3* over here -- hordes of nasty "Shivans" displaced by a superior species descend upon the valiant but small-in-number Hard Light warriors, who desperately defend their part of space . . . .

Heh, sounds good to me Ascraeus. But I have a feeling most people over at the VBB won't know about HLP - which is a real shame... I wonder what they'll do.

Too bad the game didn't get anymore support than it did, it had a really great community  


It isn't dead yet!  

Even if the VBB dissolves into binary dust, doesn't mean the communtiy does too.

No, they've just moved, as HLP and Warpstorm have shown

Just redirct them to the Rift, and we'll take care of them for you. . .

Yeah, I doubt anyone has noticed but I've been posting more here than I ever have been at the VBB lately.  This place has a much more welcome atmosphere.

Heh, yeah - cheers Eishtmo, we'll replace our "you have been banned" message with "you have been sent to the Rift, this will open in 5 seconds..."  

Note: we don't actually have a banned message, it's a joke.

What is everyone's opinion on the recent developments over at the VBB?  How well do you think the SquadWar community is being integrated into the mainstream FreeSpace 2 BB?  How do you think this will bode for the VBB, and what's your outlook on the VBB's future (just assume it has a future for discussion's sake)?

Admiting you have a problem is the first step to overcoming it.

Owing to the new moderators,  a lot rosier tahn even before SW was closed down.  At least when the SW forum was closed, it may have got rid of a few of the hangers-on only there to flame
