3D Space Shooter Game Maker/Engine?
« on: May 13, 2009, 06:24:14 AM »
Hi, all! I'm new here. I go to Arwing Landing regularly. So I'm very experienced with Star Fox. I hope to come here every day, this place is awesome!

I created this topic hoping that someone could point me in the direction of a game engine. :P

I'm wanting a kind of space-game "maker" or game engine, that was developed sometime in the 1990s. Or basically any kind of engine/maker/creator that was created around that time, or even a new one would do, but preferably an old(er) one. :) I don't want a FPS maker or anything.
Also, I'm looking for programs that aren't that big, as in 1MB-100MBs. Thanks in advance for any help! Also, where did they get the Freespace 2 engine to make this game? I can't seem to find it... Or is it not free?
Icy (Preferably freeware, too. ;) )

Your signatures are annoying. Remove the pictures because nobody really pays attention to them. Anyone with enough sense will block them. Thank you for your time.

It's only 8.0MBs!? Wow! Is that really real?

Also, is this the "engine" to mod it? Or is it just the game? Thanks a million, anyway! :D

It's just the engine. You need retail FS2 to play it.

Are there any tutorials on making mods with this engine?

Is it just programming, or is it "easy"?
Thanks, everyone. :)

You don't need retail, it's JUST the engine. Go to the HLP wiki for info on the folder structure (data/whatever/), .pofs, maps, tables...etc.
Furries are target practice :D

You might find that worth a read. Especially the bit on generating an interface using the template files.
