Evochron Legends is a free-form mercenary space-sim that focuses on 'lone-wolf' survival gameplay. You can play the game in a variety of ways and complete many activities including buying, trading, negotiating, bribing, spying, racing, escorting, transporting, mining, exploring, cleaning equipment, clearing paths through asteroid fields, recruiting, protecting, hiring crew members, fuel harvesting, and designing your ship.

EL is a technical simulation, not a character based simulator, so you are not limited by pre-selected character roles, skills, or attributes. Your decisions and actions define your role in the game and establish your reputations, wealth, progress, and ranking. The emphasis is on real-time tactical gameplay strategy for both combat and non-combat objectives. You are in control of your ship virtually all of the time in open space, including player controlled combat and planetary descents.

Your ability to successfully pilot around or through dangerous objects in space, develop trade strategies, evade detection, harvest resources, efficiently explore for hidden benefits, and transport people and items can be just as important as your skill in combat. The game also rewards players who devise their own gameplay strategies and 'think outside the box'. With diverse optional objectives and many paths to choose from, EL offers an amazing level of freeform gameplay. 

EL features unified gameplay profiles for both single player and multiplayer. The upgrades, ships, equipment, money, and commodities you earn in the game can be used in both the single player and multiplayer modes. You don't have to give up your progress in these areas when switching between single player and multiplayer, nor do you have to give up what you earn when you join different multiplayer sessions. 

Everything you do in the game takes place in a seamless universe without system 'walls' or 'rooms' that require a jumpgate 'door' to access. There are no required warp gates or trade lanes to restrict your travel and hold you back. You can travel anywhere you want, with or without jump drives and gates, as long as you have the fuel and time to get there. You can descend into planet atmospheres (without loading screens or sudden environment flipping) to land at city trade stations, mine valuable materials, or explore for hidden items. You can escape to nebula clouds for sensor cover or hide in a massive asteroid cave for protection. 

Design your ship for the role you want to play and customize the appearance by adjusting the position/scaling of the various parts of your ship. Whether it's combat, exploration, mining, trading, racing, or a variety of other activities, you'll find many ways to play and advance in the game.

'thevegimobil' - Error 37 is a result of resources being blocked on your system, usually caused by some other program running in the background interfering with the game, preventing it from loading media it needs. Visit this forum thread for details on solutions: Starwraith.com

For those of you that love space-sims, PLAY THIS. RIGHT NOW. Don't ask any questions, just stop what you're doing and play this NOW. This is an amazing game, with a galaxy's worth of stuff to see. You can act any way you want. You can a mercenary, pirate, peaceful trader, help the navy, and much more. It can be a calm, relaxing exploration of secret systems, or a fast paced space battle with lasers and missiles. Unlike other space-sims, you can seamlessly fly down to a planet without any loading screens or "gates". This game has so many secrets and hidden objects (planets, stations, etc.) that I have yet to meet anyone who has found them all. You can play alone, or MMO style online (I personally recommend the Babylon 5 server) and use the same save profile for both. The community is small, but the plus side is that everyone knows each other and are usually very friendly and helpful. In short, the best modern space sim out there. Believe it or not, the game was made by a single guy (known as Vice on the forums) who frequently updates it and handles customer support, as well as helping out players on the forums. He also does a much better job than most (possibly all) "professional" game companies, and works much faster too. ONE. FREAKING. GUY. See that "Download Evochron Legends" link? Click it. NOW. Then, once you have seen the work of art known as Evochron Legends, get your credit card and pay for the full version. I expect to see you out there.

This looks cool, it really reminds me of the game in development: Infinity: The Quest for Earth.

So, one question, does this have procedural planets (so there can be lots of em), I did see that screen shot of the surface a planet, so I thought I'd ask bout that.
