No Interplay web presence
IP's web presence is zip-a-doodle-doo. I checked the domain name, and the registration's good. The server, as well. I sense intent.

I'm sure Mr. Not-Smart will try in that case.

Re: No Interplay web presence
Well, because Freespace changed over half of my lifetime, i would spend over a half of my money for it :D.

But i hope i do not need up to 600k $ for that, because then i think my husband would consider to send me right into a psychiatry if i do that only for the love to freespace :lol:

Re: No Interplay web presence
One way or another, it'd be good to see the company that murdered FS3 being buried alive.

This is something (might be a rumor) I read a long time ago on this site, but supposedly Volition wanted to make an official FS2 expansion campaign, but Interplay killed the idea.

That was probably their first victim. :mad2: (Not entirely sure though whether that was their fault too)

Now people have been trying to built what they destroyed for almost 2 decades.

I remember this, too.  It's somewhere here on the forums.

To answer your question, work had started on an expansion pack for FS2, but it got killed pretty early on. I think it might have been about returning to Earth, but I really don't remember.

Crowdfund buying the IP + making FS3 (doesn't have to be a sequel, yo)  if that happens.

Re: No Interplay web presence
I'd donate to buying the FS IP, but only so that HLP could hold it to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands.  I wouldn't be happy with some sort of fan-created "official" FS3.

Re: No Interplay web presence
There is no fan creation that could ever be FS3.. even if HLP held the IP (which is very, very unlikely).

Re: No Interplay web presence
I'd love to see a community owned FS IP (I mean, we could distribute it for free then, right?), but I think that it is highly unlikely to happen. :(

There might even be some objection to calling Blue Planet FS3 correct?

BP is a cool thing, but it is actually never FS3. While :v: probably played with the idea to add new species (the Ancients), I massively doubt they'd ever done something like the Vishnans (in fact, their concept is contrary to Canon, which had the Shivans being both Destroyers and Preservers).

It's like Sync/Transcend, but much more complex of course - something that if you unbind the story from FS you could easily sell as a book, but not necessarily a FS game.

Even INF, which is pretty much what everybody believed to be what FS3 would be like for a long time - first fighting Earth, than the Shivans - is apparently something different to what Volition intended if you read the interview thread carefully.
