BP is not canon.
Did you even read what I said? I said; I (me) consider it cannon. I know its not officially cannon.
...and from the depths of hell I return with gifts;  one-hundred bucks and a bottle of booze.

Re: A chance for FS3 with the help from kickstarter ?
Ungh, would we please put back the "don't talk about FS3" thing?
Because it's rather annoying.

No, I don't give a **** about FS3. Even if one were made at this point I'm not even sure I would even care, regardless of if :v: made it or not.
Yes because everyone feels the same way as you do, just like space raspberries fly through nebulae in Spain.

We have an awesome community.
I'd like to point you to certain things like the Polish Hate Brigade.

VERY AWESOME.

I also accepted it as being as close to canon fan made content can get, especially after those interviews with :v: members confirming so many ideas BP had. It comes the closest to realizing their vision of FS3, and IMHO, it's actually written better than either FS1 or FS2. It also fits with the overall theme of FS2. While there are other great campaigns out there, none of them managed to guess :v:'s ideas with such precision.
You mean those interviews that was basically just the basic ideas the one writer had and nothing pure and set in stone that had a couple of similarities but otherwise being pretty different?

CONFIRMATION CONFIRMED

When did I even imply that? I was only ever talking about myself.
I've also given my reasoning why, in a later post.

It's just that every three weeks a new thread pops up about this and we go through the whole ****ing thing all over again, and nothing ever happens. **** it, the next time this happens I'm not even going to read the damn thread.

If you look at interviews with  :v:, BP nailed their intention for FS3 almost perfectly.

No. No, BP doesn't.

Really, we don't need an official sequel, such attempts after such a long time usually ruined the franchise and were deemed discontinuity anyway. You have a lot of campaigns detailing what happened after FS2, and nothing stops you from making your own mod in one of those timelines, if you wish to do so.
I already consider Blue planet cannon!
Blue Planet has a cannon?  Sweet!

Last time i heard, Interplay has like 300$ on it's bank account, so it might be cheaper to buy interplay instead of just buying FreeSpace IP :D

Re: A chance for FS3 with the help from kickstarter ?
FS3 would kill all of this by putting FS canon on a single, narrow track to follow. The only thing it would achieve is dividing the community over whether we should accept it or reject it or whatnot. It is simpler, and objectively better, for everyone involved, to keep the status quo. It has worked well for us for more than a decade, and it has shown no sign to become otherwise in the foreseeable future.

Freespace is not dead. It's our job, it's your job, to keep it alive. That's what we're all here for. We have the tools for it, we have the will for it, and that's all we'll ever need.

What if it went on a multiverse plot, every decision made creates a different reality, so all of the campaigns could still exist and not contradict canon?

Common without this kind of thread it wouldn't be the same community  :lol:

I believe you would read anyway and still post a comment  :p

Dummy post in futile gesture to help the thread have at least three pages.


:P

 No, really how many times has the "(Subject) (Possesive Verb) an idea to get FREESPACE 3 done!" popped up on the internet? or these forums?
FREESPACE will never have a "canon" conclusion, you are a million times better off taking some ideas (Alien Xenocidal race - Alien friendly race - Space Alien-UN) and making you own commercial FREESPACE ripoff.

I really thought that would make a real interisting topic, but anyway it is really amazing that some kind of "fundamentalism" had taken root in this community and in a way its understandable.

I don't want this to get out of hand and this thread have run it's course !

So wish you guys a wonderful weekend !

It's not "interesting" anymore when you always get someone to bring it up every few weeks/months for 13 years.

Re: A chance for FS3 with the help from kickstarter ?
For a while, even uttering the characters "FS3" in sequence was pretty much verboten around here, but eventually the community mellowed out enough that the occasional newbie asking about why a sequel was never made wasn't a big deal.  I think the only sort of thread that induces groans is someone trying to come up with some feasible way to obtain the rights.
