This project is designed to duplicate, as closely as possible, the "feel" of Tachyon: The Fringe, to the Freespace 2 game engine. Tachyon was always plagued by bugs, hacking, and lack of updates. This mod is an attempt to rectify most of the egregious problems, and to update the playing experience for Tachyon fans. Status: We are in the process of remodeling the entire ship list from Tachyon. this is a time-consuming process, yet will result in a vastly superior visual result. Please visit our image gallery to keep tabs on our progress on that front! As the project gains momentum, we'll be putting more information up, and sharing our progress with you. Should you wish to help, please check the Help Wanted section, and we'll consider your application carefully. We are ESPECIALLY looking for modelers, texturers, and coders - especially for LUA and C++.

Greetings citizens of Sol and surrounding
systems.

During January of this star calendar it was unanimously
decided by the Mod Staff that the prior models
we had been using were too full of errors and could
be recreated with better quality.

To this end, a substantial portion of the Mod has restarted
over from scratch - this being the total recreation
and visual updating of all 3D models. Eventually
all textures/effects will be recreated as well.
Ultimately, this will provide a better in-game
experience for everyone

So far we do have some progress in the form of "new" ships:

A Mako is also in the hanger and being prepared for display.

Last but certainly not least, we'd also like to welcome
Baxslash, Mossman, and Dev as new additions to the Staff.
Stay tuned to the Fringe - more information forthcoming.
