I love the enthusiasm, but shouldn't this be in Games & Gaming?

Re: The age of the space sim is back!
Hopefully you're right. DarkStar One was goign to be a good game until they decided to get lazy and have only one ship in the whole game.

I don't have anywhere near that kind of power.  :lol:

Anyways, Infinity looks good. Oh, and Shadows of Lylat makes me drool. Insane graphics.  :yes:

It's for FreeSpace SCP ;) I was working on something similar for Twisted Infinities for a while but got seriously side-tracked, I will get back to it though, rest assured ;)

You would have thought the fact that half the BtRL team are also on the Starfox team would have tipped people off that they should expect big things from it :)

Re: The age of the space sim is back!
North Star (no details, but rumored to be a space sim)

 We actually know more than that. Its an elite clone. However theres the question of how well or poorly Sword of the Stars did. Has Kerberos secured funding for North Star? Their a very small studio so its probably SOTS II or North Star. However if SOTS did well that demands a sequel and if it did poorly then how do they sign a publisher for NS?

 The author has also listed both Enosta and the Tarr chronicles. Its probably the same project just retitled. That seems more likely than starting an entirely new game.

What about "Mass effect"? I still not sure yet, but it looks like Freelancer style.

Not sure about that; apparently it has Ghost-Recon-in-space type squad combat.

Re: The age of the space sim is back!
The HUD in TARR looks very heavily influenced by FS :) Hard to improve on something so already good, da?
