"When you work with water, you have to know and respect it. When you labour to subdue it, you have to understand that one day it may rise up and turn all your labours into nothing. For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland

"As you sought to steal a kingdom for yourself, so must you do again, a thousand times over. For a theft, a true theft, must be practiced to be earned." - The terms of Nysa's curse, Pathfinder: Kingmaker

Interplay, this is the Volition Bravos. You are ordered to power down and surrender the FS rights !
Negative developer, money is the only legitimate authority in this system !
Surrender or be destroyed. This is your final warning.
Your posturing insults us both developer, I will not give up those rights !
As you wish. Gunnery control, open fire !
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Yeah, exactly.  No matter how it would turn out quality-wise, there's a part of me that will always want to see how :v: would have continued the story.

... just so we can put our noses up and say: yeh well,...  played a mod that was better already... eh?

Think of it... all these great storylines that are currently are "non-canon"... would suddenly get elevated to "better than canon" status ;)

Like others said, not really past  :v: to jostle us once in a bit. I remember that one video interview thing parody thing  :v-old: did like two years ago. It was mostly talking about their new games, but they had a lot of fs2 posters and **** in the background.

I forget who did it (it was somebody from here like goober, dab, kara, etc.), who took a list of future xbox 360 games and photo imaged fs3 on there.

I don't think they're joking, they'd love to make FreeSpace 3.

Of course they would, just as much as we would all love to play it.
But wishes and love don't pay the bills. Making games that the bosses and public tell you to make does.

I'm pretty sure they're not joking too. But wishes and love only works on my mommy. And well, desire to do something without means only gets to be desire. What else would  :v-old: say about future fs games anyway? They did like the fs series that they made a lot. Yeah they'll say they want to make another.

Us here with hopeful expectation, ala hot carl.

Re: Volition: 'We'd Kill To Make FreeSpace 3' on Nowgamer.com
I am aware that this thread is a fair bit old, but I felt compelled to put in my two cents regarding console versions.

Sure, it's a known fact that you cannot really mod anything, but what if there was a system implemented that would allow you to access mods done for the computer, on the console? By that, you could browse the latest additions via a menu option on the console version enabling you to utilize those mods. You're probably asking why would we want the console players to benefit from all the work the PC players do. FRED was an included feature for FS1/2. If they had something similar, it'd probably be included on FS3 to simply make the older players happy. If it can be put on a disc as an application, why not include it as a menu option on the disc. Take Farcry 2 for example. Console players had the opportunity to create their own maps because of an easy to use map creator. Same thing can be done for Freespace. That would cover fan mission additions. Other mods such as ship creation could have a program much like G.E.C.K. for Fallout. You can download it for free, and that gives console players to contribute in that fashion. You'd still need a PC, but at least it'd open up opportunities for console players who don't have systems that can run the game at it's prime.

I just wanted to get that out of my system. Too many people saying consoles don't deserve the chance (not talking specifically about here. Many comments to the various sites that have the same article have these discussions). As for joysticks, most are USB and can hook up to the consoles that are out currently. Just add the ability to custom map what controls you want where. That and you cut down on the many different functions that aren't generally used (being cut engine power 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, and all those other what I personally consider useless functions). I suppose those who play on the PC could maintain all those in a far more advanced style menu.

It could work. I'll be quiet now

Actually, ETS and other systems are really usefull if you know how to use them and especially if you have a good HOTAS set which would allow to map ETS to joystick or throttle buttons, giving you immidiate access to them. Being unable to use such options may seriously hinder preformance in certain missions, expecially in innovative campaigns which require players to do things other than shooting things (BP: WiH has a lot of such missions). Of course, it's possible to play FS2 without them, but it may be difficult. Moving them to menu would make access a bit too complicated for use in combat, rendering many thing useless.

By menu I meant the selection menu which displayed everything before combat. That being specific to PC users while console gets a similar, but less detailed and more basic setup. Or, they could both have everything listed to them and console users will just have to make due with what they feel that want to use.

That and who doesn't want a challenge. All I've ever used was trottle, match speed, shoot, counter measures, targetting systems and ship targetting. Then again, I've never had the ability to play any fan based missions except my own due to the fact I can't run FSO properly (not an install problem, hardware problem)

In fact, you could eliminate the command lineup by using Endwars system of voice commands. You could still have the option to do the old fashioned way, but once again, the less buttons you use for basics the more you could use for the more detailed functions.


So much for me staying quiet...
