Pioneer is a space adventure game set in the Milky Way galaxy at the turn of the 31st century. The game is open-ended, and you are free to explore the millions of starsystems in the game. You can land on planets, slingshot past gas giants, and burn yourself to a crisp flying between binary star systems. You can try you hand at piracy, make your fortune trading between systems, or do missions for the various factions fighting for power, freedom or self-determination.

Anyone know a money cheat?

Hi Opinionator. In the earlier builds extra cash was possible via the "Ctrl M" cheat keys, but the devs later removed this. Scout Plus does have loans available on the message board if you want to give that a try? This stand alone Pioneer mod is available here: Spacesimcentral.com

Hello again HappyLarry129. I asked the devs and yes they do at present have a newer Mac build up and running. However they are still to create an install package. I don't have any news yet unfortunately when that will be done. When it is done I will update the news page.

Does the game run on Vista? Why am I getting a notice which says video driver does not support OPen GL2? Is there a way round this please?

Have you tried updating your video drivers? If so and the problem remains, you may have found a bug. It might be useful taking a look on Github.com to see if anyone else is having the similar issue. If you don't see it, then report it there as the devs will see it right away.
