A First Person (T-Rated) Shooter for a FS3
It would be cool if you're a soldier boarding a hijacked executive transport or a Shivan Azrael (See Hallfight) with a armed mass driver.  Kinda' like the thing that Westwood is doing to Command and Conquer with their new 3D Shooter (T-Rated: Less Gore) version of CnC: Tiberian Dawn.  Volition should use the Red Faction engine to make their 1ST person Shooter FS3.

Guys, keep my wish of boarding NTF and Shivan vessels alive!

But that's only developing from the Freespace engine.  I mean something developed from an engine like the Red Faction or Quake engine.  Oh, did I mention hijacking fighters in the 3D Shooter FS3?

Yeah, it's being done as a mod for RF.

But who would really want to go into the Azrael in Hallfight? I mean, knowing that they would get blown to pieces in ten seconds...

Why would someone use the freespace engine to make a mod for Red Faction?! Freespace:FPS is a mod for RF, using the geo-mod engine for some quite good effects i hope. Its set before FS1.

FS:FPS is set during the 10th year of the Terran-Vasudan war. You're an operative in the GTI's marine branch and what is a rebellion in the core GTA systems turns out to be part of a greater rouse for the ultimate weapon against the Vasudans...

Okay so I spoiled a little more then is said on the site...

It seems to be stuck however.....
Actually, I think a FS3 MOD, or during FS2 for Unreal Tournament would be much better  .
Yes, it is possible to turn UT into a SP experience...

A UT modification would be quite nice. Or how about one for Deus Ex; the overall game mechanics there lend themselves very well to singleplayer gaming.

RF can handle everything UT and Deus Ex does, it's just that Volition didn't show half of the engine features in-game.

The widescreen dialogue in DEx? Can be done with an in-game cutsceen in RF.  

...and when level design is done properly, geo-mod is p1mp numero uno...

Hum, you'd need an extremely good engine to render a Shivan.

I dunno... I think its possible to render a shivan for RF. You would just have to restrict some of its movements with all the limbs it has. Texturewise not a problem. They also have only one weapon, if I'm correct. That plasma cannon that was part of its own body or something? It would be hard, but possible. The RF engine is REALLY sweet, too bad the game didn't do it any justice. I've made a couple of open ground levels, with lots of buildings and it works beautifully with little slow down. I even did a couple of levels for my TOTAL RECALL MOD that died out for lack of enthusiam, IE the Terraforming cavern and command room, red light district, and some of the space port. If any engine can do a FS Mod, RF can.  
I have returned... Again...

I imagine that Alien vs. Predator 2 would be good for a shivan mod, a shivan is not so unlike an alien when it comes to complex shape and movement.

I don't really see the pb anyway. Shivan can't climb walls, dudes!
they moved like that coz they were in a noG environment, they were jumping from walls to walls. if you look carefully at a shivan render or the concept pics, it just has an additional leg, nothing more.
SCREW CANON!

I doubt a Shivan can stand in anything approaching normal human gravity. If they are totally ZG adapted, as I think they are, they don't have the sort of muscles required to stand under normal G.

Yeah I know they don't climb on walls,but when they walk, alot is happening. But thats just animation. So I guess it wouldn't be too hard. Using the AVP2 engine, it would be cool to blow a shivan to pieces. But I doubt that they'd be so easy to kill. RF is still the safest and easiest bet. I mean, what could be cooler than in the midst of fiting in some sort of hangar, you spot a unoccupied Mara fighter and hijack it?!  

I think they could walk in a human G enivorement, because I think their exoskeleton would be more of a power suit, hiding a more mushier shivan inside. (ala ID4) But thats just me...
