Re: Freespace 2 Halo - Let's revive it and finish it!
I don't think so. IIRC  Ensemble had announced previously that Ensemble Studios would be closing after Halo Wars was released, and, IIRC, a different company was formed by the same team to maintain Halo Wars after Ensemble closed.

Of course, it's possible that I'm totally wrong.

Yeah thats pretty much how it happened. Some of the staff are the same i think, some aren't.

On a totally different note, it should be noted tha Halo Wars had a covvie ship in it (A destroyer class I think) that could be added to this game. Not sure i like its design though...

Re: Freespace 2 Halo - Let's revive it and finish it!
mmm then again I didn't really like the AOE trilogy. They were good for their time, but got boring real quick. Add to that they never actually did expand on it (no space age, no sciencefiction (not including AOM as that is associated with historical belief), no enhancements (always stuck to 4 ages most of which were similar with the only main diffrences being new buildings and types of units)) it just made it really hard for me to keep playing, exspecially since historic and medievil games have been done to death in my opinion. Which is one of the reasons why Freespace2 is still one of my favorite games and I have been playing it since I was 6 (11 years now (wow has it really been that long?))

You may be right there, however microsoft did have a hand, a big hand, in all of it.

I understand a lot of you liked Halo Wars and the AOE series, and i respect that, but with me I just have played too many games which are too similar from microsoft. I meen its like comparing Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds to AOE2
Imagine awakening, and hearing the heartbeat of the galaxy for the first time.
It is like a cloud, a mist that drifts from living creature to creature, set in motion by currents and eddies.
It is the eye of the storm, the passions of all living things turned into energy, into a chorus.
It is the rising swell at the end of life, the promise of new territories and new blood, the call of new mysteries in the dark.

Considering that Galactic Battlegrounds was based on the AOE2 engine and was largely little more than a sprite swap, I'm not entirely sure what your point is. :p

And while medieval sorts of games have been done to death now, they certainly weren't at the time that at least the first two AOE titles were released.  I'd also argue about their longevity, as AOE2 kept me happily occupied for more than a month fairly recently as I played through all the singleplayer campaigns.  Different strokes, I guess.

Can we talk about how we should do or improve the MOD and not how much we hate Microsoft! :lol:

Re: Freespace 2 Halo - Let's revive it and finish it!
Tiz a fair point, however like I said there are almost unlimited possibilities with campain ideas. I personally believe we should at least get a fair chunk of the mod done (like models and stuff) before we work on that. We have already come up with some great ideas, and sure we can use them, however we wont use them just yet.

The fact of the matter is for a second time this mod appears to be going nowhere. As such, noone posts here. Because we wanna see action

You know, you COULD offer to help with it, that is, if you really want this to get off the ground.
