That engine is sexy as hell...

Why would they not go with it?

Looks extremely interesting...

Then again game companies barely even know what's good anymore. =/

Nexus 1 was incomplete, a great game, but limited in certain ways, it's a pity 2 never got made.

Edit: Ironic that video was made a considerable amount of time before BSG and yet definitely has an atmosphere that reminds me of it.

Maybe because it has giant spaceships sitting there duking it out while tiny fighters fly around them?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Well, that is hardly a new event, to be honest B5 was doing that years ago, but it doesn't feel like B5 to watch.

I'd say it's more along the lines of both the video techniques used and the atmosphere projected.

The companies still going isn't it? What i mean is, no chance of the engine being open source at all? :nervous:

a great game AND to me, not incomplete at all. Multiplayer wasn't good but WHO CARES? Story was good, it demanded tactic and it was and still is awesome, not to mention good looking. It's not a pity the sequel never got made, it's a crime against humanity!

It is a great game, I'll agree, but even the people who released it said that they would have liked to do a lot more with it, including editable fields of engagement, improved Multiplayer and various other improvements. The game as released was excellent, but time limits took their toll on it.

Kind of like Hostile Waters, I have no complaints whatsoever about the game, but the original intent was to have a much larger game, there's even rumors that a Multiplayer patch for it exists, but was never released.

Edit: More than rumour...

it was a great game.


The BSG mod was pretty good too.

Very difficult though, basestars were nearly impossible to kill.

I've got the Stargate one and one of the star-trek ones. But the skirmish-maker gets boring after a while.

or can we . . .

We could with a working post process system. The problem is (once again) getting the depth sorting right when doing the distortion.

Re: NEXUS 2, when was it cancelled ?
Cool, one of my favourite game trailers of all time, I just keep coming back to it once in a while.

I really like the way the combat scene plays out... the fighter shooting at a target behind it made me go "whoa" and "WTF" at the same time though... that is some high-tech off-boresight lock-on?

And the use of beams, pulsed beams, those energy bombs and missiles/torpedoes too... Really half-FS (beam) and half-(whatever sci-fi universe uses missiles and torps as heavy weapons as opposed to beams) in my opinion. (I quietly yearn for a time when FSO can have weapons like that XD)

Then there's the fighters shooting each other down with machinegun pulse lasers... I like!!! Compare that to the game where it's all just flickering beams... it felt very "meh"... :doubt:

The only thing I couldn't get used to in both the first game and the trailer is the music with that voice... like something out of a horror film, (as in truly scary and not those cheesy flicks) but it really captures the mood of space I guess...

Re: NEXUS 2, when was it cancelled ?
What do you mean 'quietly yearn for a time'? Missile and torps are very practical heavy weapons in FSO right now.
