The game begins 32 years after the Great War. You are a pilot in the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance (GTVA), a single entity formed to cement the alliance between the Terran and Vasudan races after loss of communication with Earth. However, opposition still exists to this union, and a faction of Terrans led by Admiral Bosch formed the Neo-Terran Front (NTF) and has rebelled, taking over several star systems. The player's early missions are to quell these rebellions and bring in Admiral Bosch. Eventually the another alien species is encountered.

About Homeworld: Pilot Academy with 1 comment by Triikor on Aug 10th, 2013

Youtube vid of current gameplay

Thoughts, comments, and whatever else are welcome. Just to be obvious about this, I am not 100% following canon. There are "shields" (which are just surface shields not an actual shield mesh) for gameplay purposes, as well as missiles for strike craft and short burst afterburners for quick acceleration or evasion.

Though I suppose I am going canon at least for capital ships as they will be pretty identical to how they are in Homeworld

There were a few errors that, at least for me, did not make themselves known. I have also made some edits to the weapons that should make them feel more...

After purchase, download to Desura & successful multiple installations and attempts to launch I get two (2) error messages: (1) "Please configure your system in the launcher before running FPS2. The launcher will now be started!" (2) "Freespace2/Fred2 cannot be launched from a drive root directory." Please help.

You need to go to Hard-light.net and follow the instructions. when you download Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer and folowed the instructin for that find the file named FRED2 within C:\Program Files (x86)\Desura\Common\Freespace 2\ and move it to the folder you created for the files you downloaded with Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer. then move the file named fs2_open_3_6_14 into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Desura\Common\Freespace 2\ folder. then you duoble click it and it will start up the game. Then you can creat a short cut to the game on your desktop. This worked for me and I hope it works for you!

Probably the best space sim I've ever played. Despite its age, it holds up to the test of time in terms of gameplay.
