Originally created by Volition Inc to run Freespace 2, the FS2_Open engine has been radically improved so that the engine can now compete with modern space combat simulation engines.

The following has been classified level Omega.

The Shivans are in complete control of the galaxy and the entire universe. Many races begin vying for control, and an ensuing war will change the course of cosmic history forever.

You are one of the Shivans. Tasked of cleansing various races to preserve diversity, you discover your species are linked to something and a deepness that is not described as of yet.

Are you willing to destroy to preserve?

Installation instructions are here (url is Hard-light.net). A full standalone package is available for download on ModDB as well, but you should still review that thread. FreeSpace 2 Retail is not required, but a latest FSO nightly build is required.

Expect the following, and more:

Features:

  • 2 missions with campaign branching, totaling 4 missions.
  • Countless new ship types.
  • A capship command.
  • Introns.
  • New races.
  • New HUD interfaces, effects, sound, and music.
  • And of course, big, epic, badass space battles.

Is the updated freespace open engine anything like the modified Starlancer engine used in Freelancer or could it be made to look like that.

Yes. While only one standalone game has been released so far (The Babylon Project mentioned above), there are other total conversions being worked on, like Diaspora.

The engine is free to use for any non-commercial project. You can't sell anything made using it but beyond that, you can just download it and get to work if you wanted to.
