Starlancer: Sol War is a new space shooter based on the Digital Anvil game Starlancer. The game is going to be playable in singleplayer and multiplayer with more than 70 levels spread over 3 campaigns.

The game will have a short tutorial which does introduce the basic controls and features while the following campaigns are completly story related. With campaign 1 we show the start of the Sol war which already is covered by the original game. That campaign is more or less just a reproduction of the old game with a better game engine while the other two following campaigns tell a story about the 100 years of war between coalition and alliance.

Starlancer: Sol War is closing the missing gap between the original Starlancer and its sequel Freelancer.

Fellow passionate gamers,

The 2009 Mod of the Year Awards event is up and running. For the past few years
Crossfire has reached the Top 100.
We would like to thank you all for your kind support! Without your votes this
would not have been possible.

This year again we need your votes; not only for Crossfire but all the other
brilliant mods that made this game immortal. The communities and modders have
kept this great game alive for the last seven years - and the game will
hopefully live on for many more years. Your support is decisive to us
Freelancers. Despite the fact that many players have left over the years, the
many Mods
Freelancer has to offer attracted a lot of new people, and many veterans came
back.

However, a game cannot survive without any support. We encourage you to have a
look at all the Freelancer Mods on www.moddb.com. We need you to vote!

A new year approaches and with it a little surprise. Crossfire 1.8 will be
released in the first week of 2010 and will push the game to the next level.
Fantastic story, next generation graphics and perfect gameplay. For more
information and many screenshots and videos please go to: Moddb.com

Don't forget to vote for us!

We look forward seeing you on our server in January.

The SWAT Team wishes a Merry Christmas to you and your families and a Happy New
Year 2010!

Kind Regards,

The SWAT Team

I'm really looking forward to this game using the FreeSpace Open engine. I'm a great fan of FreeSpace but I've also enjoyed StarLancer's style.

I really like the modified mainhall that gives a very good impression of ETAK...ehm...ITAC. ;-)

One question - are you considering code changes to make the AI smarter when dealing with high speeds? As far as I know anything faster than 300 meters per second might give problems.

I know that Fabian worked on that part of the code, but I don't remember any updates. I guess you're informed about the matter.

yes
but thats going to be a matter of balance that we actually try to improve in the final phases of coding
in the end we have to deal with this issue since Starlancer ships have a speed up to 700

right now the most important part is to finish the ship models and the neccessary effects on them such as cloaking and the correct use of equipment

Are you going to use Scripts? They're extremely useful.

Nomads destroying the Sol System is not official canon since it was cut. But I guess the developers wanted to give you a reason to not try to come back.
