As of 8/30/2014 Version 3 of the public Beta has been released (see link in summary section), go try it now! The objective of this project is to recreate an accurate space combat experience from the Original Star Wars Trilogy. Our team has analyzed all the original space battles and, to the best of our abilities, we have attempted to capture the same style and overall atmosphere from the movies. Just like the movies, ships have high velocities, a focus on primary weapons, and encounters are deadly and only survived by those with experience, teamwork, and some skillful use of the force... We chose to use the powerful and actively worked on Freespace 2 Open engine. It provides a engine that is easy for almost any machine to run while at the same time allowing for high quality visual effects, smart AI, and massive battles. The engine is constantly being updated and worked on, and provides very effective mission and campaign creation tools.
