Re: Flight of Nova

Really nice vibes and great music in this game. Too bad it's Windows only as of this writing. Space games make me think along these lines: way back when, perhaps it was difficult for people to conceive of how they would navigate or handle atmospheric flight. These days, because we are collectively s...

That'll give WKFO a run for his money!

Re: forum issue

Nope, it's not just you. It looks like some software maintenance is required, which is something well, well beyond my pay grade.

Re: Bowfin Light Fighter

Nozmajner, I was wondering if I could ask the man himself about some of the "lore" behind this ship! There are notes on a specific military variant, which we actually mused about a little over IRC a few weeks back. I presume that version is only available to diplomatically-qualified govern...

Starshatter

Just thought I'd write a quick blurb on this one. This is a really neat game, and if I was still on Windoze I might still be tinkering with it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRmBfQk_mls ...Tried to find a cooler video, but the old fan trailer with Holst playing as the background track seems to hav...

Vega Strike?

I know this game exists. I know it has existed for a long time. And, for a long time, I have not been remotely interested in it. I'm making note of it as I was reading about the various musings on bars and station locations, etc. And, Vega Strike does have that (or something which approaches it), an...

Re: Helium Rain

I like this game a lot - I've not played it in a while, but that's also a good thing as it's a massive time sink. ...One thing I do want to comment on is some of the design that went into the game. Namely, orbital mechanics, or what is supposed to be an approximation for them. I want and need to lea...

Re: Orbiter - Space Flight Simulator

Neat. Just a matter of time before someone switches up DirectX for OGL etc., and a Linux port should happen.

Syndicates, Revolutionaries, and Opposition Governments

So, I was reading up on some various ideas, including mission ideas, and started to wonder how those might fit into the game. As of now, they probably wouldn't. But, in the future with some additional work, they just might. And, the proposals here, which certainly can't be new, might allow them to d...

Proposals for Weapons and Fire Control Systems

Hello again! My initial impetus for wanting to post on these boards was due to having a hard time with combat. I never got around to writing that post back then, but here are my thoughts now. I don't know what the future holds, of course, but throwing some ideas to the breeze can't hurt, right? ****...
