    Thumbs up Re: X-Wing PC remade with the modern Unity 3D Engine

    Been wishing for this for years! Have no doubt the lawyers will be on the case tho :-(

    IIRC There's a Freespace 2 Open mod being worked on too...

    Edit: There are lots of links to FSO mods on the Youtube video mentioned. Can't believe I've missed these... hope they stay under Disney's radar too ;-)

    Actually doesn't look that great to me to be honest.

    If will absolutely get stomped on by Disney if they release it as a standalone game, but if it were a "patch" to the old game which was required for use then under that fairly dubious guise Disney might not drop the hammer.

    No-one is making anything new with Freespace (other than small modding community), the IP was in the hands of the scumbags who ran Interplay over the past few years and are now selling it but not as a standalone item but as part of a bulk IP sale, who has it now I don't know.

    Volition the original Freespace devs are still around as are the guys who made it at the company, check their Youtube page were they play some of their old games, they have said they would love to do another Freespace game but just don't have the IP.

    Yes, that's who I meant, the guys that hang out at Hardlight.net There are several FS Open Source mods in progress (or finished) including Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica.

    The Star Wars one is trying hard to keep its head under the parapet so to speak, calling itself Fate of the Galaxy and not using any copyrighted material if at all possible (eg models, John Williams music, the opening crawl etc). Hopefully be appearing during 2017 but with no budget and a tiny team, might just b another failed effort like so many others...

    Cool project but I'd much rather play SWG:JtL or the GameCube version of Rogue Leader.

    Physics look far too clunky for space, the camera's too rigid... It just doesn't sit right at all.

    There's mechanically polished Star Wars space games out there already, think it makes more sense to mod those than build from scratch. Still, sure the creator has had fun with it.
