What is the "Fleet Operations Engine"? Is that from Star Trek: Armada II?

Go to College.

Terrible advice. DO NOT GO TO COLLEGE FOR GAME DESIGN. If you are serious about making video games, get into modding. If you want to do coding, go to college for IT or something that can be used for something OTHER than video games. Most of it is applicable between the two and if you get a GD degree but can't find a GD job, you're fucked. If you want to get into the art side, do something like New Media or whatever.

The best free 3D modeler out there is probably Blender, while the easiest to use is probably Sketchup. You can use GIMP for 2D work and XNA to do code work to get you started. Have fun.

There won't be a demo, but there will be two releases.

First the prolouge, which has it's own plot, while it also acts as introduction for the next release.
There will be a few single player missions and a working multiplayer part.
The mutliplayer part will feature most of ships from the final release.

We hope to see a lot of user made missions too, which is the reason why we're putting a lot of ships into the release, that won't even be in the pologue campaign.

Second is the actual final release, featuring the complete capaign. It will add a few more multiplayer levels and (probably) a few more flyable ships.
There will also be some technical updates, interface updates, some general polishing.

The second release won't be an update, but  a compelete stand-alone game a well.

As for the release dates we're also sticking to "when it's done".
However, we're pretty close to completing a big step in the progress. So keep an eye on the board. ;)

Hey DB :) Will we be able to merge the two installs?

A ship made of Jell-O.

This thread makes me lol.

There is also a video of an on-rails mission that was implemented, and IIRC it was mentioned that there will be a few levels in the classic Star Fox style.

Who cares?

It's not particularly super-realistic, and you have no direct control over your spaceship - it's like Everquest in space really.

If you want MMO dogfighting, try Vendetta Online.

Tmp2 / Animated control surfaces?

It's possible for the engine to do it IIRC. I think Nuke knows how actually as he's done the most work with the animation subsystems.

I'd need to see it done more than once in a single episode before I thought it was worth the hassle of asking someone to consider adding it to the model though.

I'm pretty sure I remember a very specific discussion several people had, where we were told the engine didn't support it, IIRC.

I've seen this before and it has been noted internally, but there are no plans to my knowledge to animate it, mostly because of code limitations. Freespace Open does support animation, but not very well, it's difficult to do, and IIRC it can't be bound to a keypress (such as reverse thrust).

Shadows of Lylat / Suggestions

It's a game, I don't know if it will be all Arwing or not, I'm pretty sure they've got some other ships, and I don't know about the third, although I think there'll be both.

And how the hell can you be ranked, "the number" 3 in SF64?

Halo's ok...I prefer Halo 1 myself, it's fun to play when you want to relax (it's so freaking easy compared to the fast-paced shooters PC players are used to, like Unreal Tournament). Halo 2 I was meh on, Halo 3 brought back some of the charm from the first, but not all of it.

Might I suggest getting UT3 instead of GoW, if you intend to mod it? Even though they're based on the same engine, I believe UT3 is more expandable (and it's not tied to Windows Live on the PC).

I dunno, I like the looks sweet as it is.

Don't forget to vote again, now that we're in the top 100 :D
