There's a FreeSpace book?
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

Anyone have a picture of Freespace Tachyon, even being it does not come by in my archives hehe

As for books like the ones Peter Telep wrote of the Descent series, there were no books written by Peter Telep or any other book writer with a Freespace storyline and imo The Freespace universe is large enough for a books series and I would of loved to see them coming, let's hope for a book series when or if aFreespace3 comes around right :)

Re: Meet The World's Largest Descent / Freespace Collection!
There is not a "Freespace Tachyon" short of our FringeSpace mod, which is WIP.

Tachyon the Fringe, is a separate game from Novalogic, came out at about the same time as FS2, and had a wide appeal to
a lot of folks that like the space combat genre. It was mostly free roam, had very large bases and two multiplayer modes that
could have up to 64 players in a single server and/or map.

Looks like someone butchered the Wikipedia article and neutered it, it's not even half as good now. So I'll have to link you to Steam.

Heh, I'm glad someone else out there remembers those Descent books.  They were a pretty entertaining read for being game adaptations.

I only collect the original versions and not the re-boxes or other after market variants ;)

This makes it even harder to take on and more fun also :)

Re: Meet The World's Largest Descent / Freespace Collection!
I wish I still had my Definitive Collection box.  I have my D3 and FS ones lying around, but I guess I got rid of that when I was too young to know better.  Or else my parents just tossed it. :p

You should do a youtube video about this stuff. Like that LGR guy. That is assuming you have the gear, the editing software, and are willing to put your voice on the web. Would be cooool . . . .

Re: Meet The World's Largest Descent / Freespace Collection!
MAny thanks for your thoughts :)

And yeah that does seem like a plan, I have made remixes of Descent Games & JC2 game runs I made in 1080p Video and AC3 sound, you can see my channel here:
http://www.youtube.com/user/obiwankenobi28?feature=mhee

However, I did make something like that along time ago after I reached about 70 items, which was somewhere in August of 2009:

Only showing myself on camera, erm no, not that type of person, due to my light form of Aspergers Syndrome, that is one thing I'd never do  :nervous: :nervous:
But my voice, yer I can do that, even that I'd prefer voiceless videos with Trance music in the background, it's that I can't stand my own voice even on any thing recorded  :banghead: :nervous: :blah:

Nice collections!!!  I wish I had not tossed my original boxes for Fresspace & FS2.  I do still have all my original disks and manuals, but I've been playing FSPort instead of retail.

One thing I always wanted but never got was one of those keyboard overlays from Cockpit Overlays advertised in the back of the FS2 manual. 
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

Re: Meet The World's Largest Descent / Freespace Collection!
Just saw this thread: I don't think it's traditional Chinese. The title is written like this:

自由空间

If it was written in traditional, it'd be more like this:

自由空間

That is awesome though! It's pronounced 'Zìyóu kōngjiān', literally 'Free Space'.

EDIT: Searched on Youku (Soku) and found someone playing FreeSpace Port. Unfortunately, no sight of a Chinese FreeSpace 2 has been sighted on the internet yet. I'd love to hear the Chinese voices as well. I also found a little board for FreeSpace, and it has topics about BP and Diaspora and even GoG. Unfortunately, a topic with a torrent of the US copy of the game is stickied on the front page, so I won't post a link.

EDIT2: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=6529428279 !!!

Re: Meet The World's Largest Descent / Freespace Collection!
Hmm I wonder if there is a FreeSpace: The great War and a Freespace: Silent Threat in these Chinese variants, which also goes for the entire Descent series, if so that would be new goals for me too seek and obtain :) Many thanks for that infor, only I can't eread Chnese haha. the seelr from who i got it from told me it was traditional Choneese so I kinda took it from him back then which was somewhere in 2009 I think it was.

Many thanks watsisname!  :D :pimp:

But yeah, they were my first true case mods too and I still have that case, the Pyro-GX is a bit weird since I land depth precision and I can't see 3D so drawing a 3D image was very hard haha, the left wing would be drooped down more as it seems, oh well I am not going to change it. it's something I did back then  :) :)
