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...

It's the native port that Ryan "Icculus" Gordan did. If your looking to improve the original game you might want to look at FS2_OPEN.

downloaded and cant get the game to run....keeps giving me the error "Freespace2/Fred2 cannot be run from a drive root directory!". Searched forums and by all accounts its related to long directory strings under windows, they recommended i move it to something like D:\Games\Freespace2 and try to run it but i still get the same error......kinda ****** that i paid for this and they dont have the bugs worked out.

Try a directoy path using 8.3 structure as in each file or directory only having eight letters with a optional three letter suffix eg d:\games\FS2
this might work...

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