Re: Still play any space related games?
Nexus: The Jupiter Incident.....now I have wanted to have a go of that since I saw that techdemo of Nexus2, pity it will never be released!

*Sigh* Thank god we have SCP. If Sierra gives out the source code, then that is another SCP project.

I can imagine that a lot of HLPers got pissed after Smart's attempt to buy liscence.

Harsh words, Derek. Harsh words. And what do you get? No liscence, no FreeSpace, only some stfu from HLP. That is legal.

If seriously, what would need to be done to make Derek Smart's games... good ? ( sorry, but having words 'good' and 'Derek Smart' in the same sentence sounds weird ).

Also, does anyone know any good mods for Hegemonia ?

AND, if anyone's interested in trying HomePlanet FULL game with it's expansion too, contact starlord.

After searching in google for Hegemonia and Homeplanet....I found out I am the worst gamer in the world.

Take a look at 3000AD werbsite. It looks more like a fansite rather than an official website.

How to improve it? Well, a better storyline. According to this http://www.3000ad.com/pics/bcm/photo045.jpg, he focuses 3000AD within Solar System and some outside. I have read the original storyline, and it was crap. Total bull****.
Second thing: Graphics suck ass. Although I have to admit that he did improve a little after his new game Galatic Command Echo Squad came out two weeks ago. You can tel that he is trying to copy from FS SCP here http://www.3000ad.com/pics/gcES/07-12-17/PHOTO009.PNG. But ultimatly, he is not very successful in it

It's too good to even be called "copying of SCP". . . But oh well. I wonder where he gets the budget to make his games and publish them . . .

And why are you the worst gamer in the world ?  :p

Re: Still play any space related games?
Nope, don't play any, but I don't play many games anyway these days. About Nexus, well, that is indeed a good game, but it had some major flaws that held it back - for instance, the pacing was probably it's biggest. Ships simply didn't turn fast enough, and I've had a couple instances where I had my big ship (the Archangel or whatever) fighting against a small cruiser. The cruiser couldn't kill my ship, but it was fast enough (fast being a relative term) to stay out of it's turn radius so that they would end up in an infinite loop, neither being able to kill each other. But the pacing otherwise was simply too slow...it would take ages for ships to traverse long distances, and the lack of any definite order feedback (such as lines leading from the ship to it's destination/target) or precise movement controls really hampered it for me.

There is also Oolite: oolite.aegidian.org. Continuous development, currently at version 1.71.2, which seems to be in many ways better than the official 1.65 stable. Being a member of its development team, I would prefer to say no more and leave further comments to whomever gives it a try.

I lol @ Derek trying to copy things from SCP.

There is a problem with that "copy cat" theory.

Those are thrusters, not beam cannons.

That's a coincidence, I've been trying to get started on it the past few days. While I'm at it, is there a faster way to get money than trade between rich industrial and poor agricultural planets?

I might actually give this a try, I've been playing Elite+ a bit lately, and was thinking it might be nice to have 'Elite' in every sense but a cleaner interface :)

Re: Still play any space related games?

There are quite a few, actually. For example, you could trade your Cobra MkIII for a less capable ship and use the trade-in value to equip the ship fast. Or play at the Hoopy Casinos and be lucky. But I am afraid I am derailing the thread here. Why don't you drop by www.aegidian.org/bb and ask? I'm sure you will find many forum members willing to give you hints to get started.
