Vega Strike is an OpenSource 3d Space Simulator. Work is proceeding on both the Vega Strike game engine and a Vega Strike Universe game data set. Both engine and data are in a playable state, but still under development. Each release serves as a beta for both engine and data.

The Vega Strike engine serves as the foundation for the Privateer Gemini Gold, Privateer Remake, Vega Trek, and Pi Armada projects, whose websites can be seen on the main page.

It can be played on Linux and windows. Considering it was first released before win7, it should work on xp.

I've never had any luck getting this game to actually be PLAYABLE ever since I first tried the version in the repos of Ubuntu 5.04. Currently installing it on Mint 13 I can't access the game's settings menu as that crashes instantly, I'd rather not try to play the game again after reading the comments that apparently the discoverabiility of the controlls is still nonexistant after all these years.

I remember having to drop to a terminal to kill the game from the command line since after 5 mins of trying the game wouldn't quit via the GUI.

Played this game a few years back and remember it was great, only thing is it was realy time consuming and, like previously mentioned, there are no tutorials or guide lines to help new players get started. Getting the big ships is laborious and figuring out ship controls with the scatered keybindings is, for the least, chalenging... Once you get the huge ship and get decent trade routes that's when I got lost a bit, since there was no online option I found myself wandering arround across the univers…
