(Semi-OffTopic) An Announcement
Sorry for posting in this forum, but as you can see from my avatar list I cannot post it in games and gaming.

I have decided to bring back the ferrium project, but starting pretty much from scratch again because the target game type is different.  I want to make a game like Privateer/Elite - open ended space flight combat sim, with optional storyline(s).  A richer universe however - easier to add to, more space to grow into (remember my Universe Map (4.7meg jpeg)).   I have this vision for the universe just screaming to get out of my head and I cannot stand it anymore :D I must make it a reality.

A more detailed post is available on the Ferrium Forums

Re: (Semi-OffTopic) An Announcement
Last time you ignored your team and played Everquest while the project descended into chaos. And if I remember correctly, the most that got done, after four years, was Raa coding a smilie into the graphics "engine." 

Furthermore, an Open Source project should not be based on any one self-described auteur's vision, while everyone else simply slaves away trying haphazardly to achieve it. That might work in cubicle-land for EA, but not on the internet.

Re: (Semi-OffTopic) An Announcement
thank you for the nice pemissistic flame that should have been kept to yourself. 

Actually a lot more than that got done in it, and I just salvaged most of the code from it for use in the new one.  About the only code I discarded was the GFX engine code which was capable of D3D and OGL, we're going straight OGL on this one.

Any chance of PCS2 coming back while we're at it?

that was less offensive before you edited it, there is no need for that kind of behavior UT

I wasn't trying to make it less offensive.
EDIT: Anyway, I'm done with the thread. I just wanted to post my "reservations" about the completion of this project.

there is a difference between "Reservations" and "insults".

By post three this thread has already gone in to flamebait land.  Make it go somewhere else or lock.
