Version 4 of the public Beta has been released (link in summary section), go try it now! Our goal is to create an accurate and fun space combat experience from the Original Star Wars Trilogy. We have analyzed all the original space battles and, to the best of our abilities, we have attempted to capture the same combat style and overall atmosphere from the films. 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 maintained Freespace 2 Open engine. It provides an 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 modding capabilities along with excellent mission and campaign creation tools.

Post news Report RSS Version 3 Progress Update

Version 3 is steadily progressing! The first custom mission of the Official OT Campaign (it's even voice acted!), new Mainhall designs, more tweaking and balancing, and bigger stress tests of battles await...

Posted by on

First off there is a totally new and improved Mainhall, thanks to coffeesoft! Check out the screenshots:

Also, the first offical campaign mission of the mod is under development. There is even going to be custom voice acting. This mission, not to spoil too much, puts you in the middle of the events immediately before the start of Episode IV. Here is a teaser screenshot:

Also I have been tweaking and further modifying turrets, AI, subsystems, and balance. The results are shown below. I also did a large scale battle test to see how well the mod would hold up, and it ran very nicely (despite my PC being rather old and slow).

Anyway, Version 3 is coming along and will come out as soon as the first mission gets done! Thanks again for all your support and comments! We really appreciate them! Similarly, if you want to be involved in the production process we would love to hear from you!
