But i'll stay with the SCP loyalists.... all the way. :yes:

Unless FS 3 will have real Newtonian physics, allowing me to orbit around the ship I'm attacking while facing it all the time, will be even easier to mod than the SCP, and will have graphics that Crysis could never dream about.

        Newtonian physics? how does that make sense for Freespace?

I played a single demo mission of a Russian space sim with full-fledged Newtonian physics.

Never. Again.

ELITE, it's all you ever need (Frontier Elite 2 also maybe) with Real NEwtonian physics and planetary orbits.

Oh we have, we have.



It's just that without :v: it will be a very sad FS3.

It's just that without :v: it will be a very sad FS3.
But :v: really isn't :v: anymore to begin with, at least in terms of personnel.  From every quote I've ever heard from them, it's pretty clear that there was never any fleshed-out idea for what FS3 would consist of, other than a few general suggestions like "planet-sized ships" and "bigger problem."  There was no FS3 design document, no fleshed-out plot, no completed script.  Unless you somehow get the exact same writers and concept artists from the first two games back together and set them to work, it won't really be the same game even if :v: does make it.

Now, do I think that some other developer would necessarily be able to recapture the same atmosphere that :v: brought to the first two games so excellently?  Not at all.  But there's also nothing saying that they wouldn't be able to.  Either way, such speculation is generally useless, since the space sim is all-but-dead in today's market.

Yes, but it's highly improbable given recent gaming trends. I'd like to play FS3 for the closure, personally, but I'll be perfectly content with what we have now.

Someone from Interplay finally replied to one of the topics about the pic.  Looks like we have to wait another week for a real answer though. 
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Geez, Colonel, isn't the 2000-character limit on HLP enough for you? I haven't even used half of mine yet. :rolleyes:

Even if FS3 is released, I think I'll still stick to FS2_Open, probably for the same reasons why I like RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 more than I like RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.

I used most of them just to get rainbow.
Why can't we use images? :doubt: They're hosted on external sites anyway...

Because it makes reading threads a horribly painful experience. Same with avatars. It distracts from the post content.

*has transcended annoying signatures


Anyway, galemp is right. But worse than that, is I've spent so much time here on HLP that I'm irrationally pissed off at any site that does allow them.

I've only really been a regular at two forums. Here, and my old Squadrons which allowed reasonably sized images. Hard-light definitely takes the lions share overall. I s'pose i'll have to visit game-warden more. If they allow .gif all the better :)

      It's bad enough that people post meaningless posts in the first place with nothing but smilies or "QFT", but at least it takes up the amount of space that it takes up. With Avatars someone's crap post can take up half a page just because they have some huge signature and some massive avatar. Check out the http://www.classicbattletech.com forums for the kinda crap I mean.
