Blue Planet is a fan-made FreeSpace story, set 18 years after the events of FreeSpace 2. Featuring epic missions, full voice acting, in-engine cutscenes...
Eighteen years have passed since FreeSpace 2 and the destruction of Capella, and the shattered colonies of man are finally ready to re-open the jump node to Earth. As the Alliance teeters on the verge of total social collapse, the Security Council deploys the elite 14th Battlegroup to re-establish contact with Earth, and young pilot Samuel Bei finds himself once more under his estranged father's command.
Age of Aquarius describes the journey of the 14th Battlegroup as its mission to the Blue Planet goes shockingly wrong. (StrategyInformer has very kindly provided a mirror for us.)
War in Heaven takes place eighteen months after the events of Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius and details the final stages of the civil war between Sol and the rest of her colonies: a war without good or evil, only shades of gray.
Built at the cutting edge of the FreeSpace Open engine, Blue Planet is a fan-made conclusion to the FreeSpace saga, a story of sacrifice, triumph, and destiny, and one of the most beloved FreeSpace mods of all time.
First, I have to apologize for not posting updates in a while. As you may have gathered, development has slowed down a bit, as people were forced to concentrate on Real Life instead of modding. Our Glorious Leader Darius has gotten a beautiful daughter, General Battuta decided to concentrate more on his academic and writing career, and I was caught up in RL issues as well.
But fear not, dear fans. We may be going slow, but we are going forward. We are officially able to report that most of R2 is done. While I can not give you a release date, even a tentative one, rest assured that you will get to see more of the story.
Now, there isn't really a lot of other things I can show you, but here are a few things you may be interested to see:
As the War moves into its final stages, the battles get bigger and bigger.
Aesaar's new Chimera model, a beautiful reimagining of the original one. In this case, flying around in an old Age of Aquarius mission
The SCP team continues to impress, adding new features to make the game even prettier.
Until the next time, this was The E. Hopefully I'll be able to post more news in the future, until then, have a nicely developing day.

Hard-light.net Might've been a year since I first played this, but it was amazing. Not only is it fun, but it had immersion. I was a skeptic at first because I found the Age of Aquarius (BP1) to be an above-average-but-not-the-best campaign because the whole magical alternate universe and the deus-ex-machina aliens lacked the human element. War in Heaven, on the other hand, is truly a human conflict. Vishnans were retconned to be a species…
