Some names like "Terrans" and "Orion" are far too much standardized in sci-fi for any sort of copyright to apply though.

This is one of the moments when multiple personalities would be nice for handling those entirely opposite feelings I'm having...
"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

"...because they are not Dragons."

I don't believe that they should make a Freespace 3 yet, if ever. Part of the charm is that it's still "ongoing".

I don't think the age of the ip would hamper the success of  a FS3 game, as Fallout 3 shows.

The only way I could get to play it would be on console, as my gaming rig is well outdated. And as someone said, the moneys in console games.

It's not really worth playing to me unless it's done right. I wouldn't care how many juicy fanboy plot details they put in.

Debateable. :) One could always let the two argue amongst themselves and choose the one with the better points.

They'd kill for FS3? Hell, I'D kill for FS3. I wanna know what happened to Bosch. I wanna know more about the ancients, I want earth back

And i damn well want to see what Volition could do with modern graphics. Mediavps blew my mind, but imagine what they could do with studio support. Zomgzgomzgomg

If they can make it and there are sufficient beta testers from "the community"(IE us who have held the faith for 12 years) to make sure that it's really FS3 and not some soulless console shooter then I wholeheartedly agree.  I would not see FS resurrected and sewn up funny ala Halo: Reach however.  If they wanna make a Freespace: Reach, I'll probably do something unpleasant.

Jim Boone, producer.  Also FREDed several FS missions.
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

They should get some of our Fredders on the team though, because fs2 retail fredding is pretty bad compared to some of the stuff the community has released  :p

You do have to remember that they FREDded with a lot less features/sexps than we have now. Some things which may be a workaround in FREDding for us would have been just about impossible for them. Not to mention FreeSpace 3 would more than likely be built on a completely new editor, which may not be too different or it could be entirely different.

And will probably come out without editor's tools at first, so... game of no modding value, but I will get it just to see how the story develops.

That's actually not necessarily true.

Re: Volition: 'We'd Kill To Make FreeSpace 3' on Nowgamer.com
Hence the "probably" on the sentence, and to think that it might be a console/pc release makes me be almost certain that it will not feature modding tools, at least not at the start.

Out of curiousity,

Any idea how much the FS licence would sell for?, or around?, (as an approximation).

Assuming it was as easy as handing over the money and walking out with it.

Well aware of that, I'm mostly talking about quality control. There's quite a bit of sloppiness in retail missions that our experienced fred trained eyes would pick up on.
