Unlike most people here (it seems), I played Freespace2 when it came out, enjoyed it and eventually forgot about it. A week ago, somehow i got linked to this and got obsessed. I figured everything out quickly, built a series of folders containing all the mods (with mediavp as a mod system; dual sets of mediavps, too)
So i'm playing the updated R1 (the SCP version) Inferno for the first time. It's so cool. It's my favorite mod, the EA is cool, the Shivans are cool, hell, even the Vasudans are cool for once. I also have Derelect and some other mods which are also very good, but nothing on the scale of Inferno as far as new ships and vessels and weapons, etc. Not to take anything away from those mods tho, I'm having a great time in Derelict as well, and some of the other mods too. Good Job Everyone, some of you must be jaded by now and I just want you to know that your work is still making people very happy and excited because there are really no modern games like freespace2 that have a very cool story.
IMO, The only thing stopping Inferno from world domination is voice. I would love to see some voice acting done for it, it would really make it come to life.
