This was created when the source code was released for Freespace 2. In addition, content update packs have been developed which take advantage of the upgraded game engine. These packs include higher-poly models and higher resolution textures.

I have been working on the FSO source code for some time. My intention: to create a dedicated build for Rekt Galaxies and Fractured Suns, as well as existing mods and campaigns.
It is called the Rekt Galaxies/Fractured Suns build for FSO, or the RGFS build.
As of now, this build is located at GitHub. If you want to get it, follow the instructions there. You need CMake and your development IDE of your choice to build that.
The planned features of this build include:
When the mod releases, I'd expect this to be merged into the main GitHub repository, and I continue to add features into FSO.
