shit man, that's properly BIG! I thought Elite 2 was massive back in the day... that other game looks cool.. i wish they would do something for the consoles like this, i've been waiting since the 90s!!

i did hear a year or so ago that the guy that made Elite 2 was making something new.. i'll have another look at see if there's any news..

hmmm, look what i just found on play.com

http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/680942/ ... oduct.html

taken from here:

http://www.toc-gaming.co.uk/blog/PermaL ... 29dbe.aspx

edit:

says these games are similar:

serving as a model for more recent games such as EVE Online, Freelancer, Jumpgate, Infinity: The Quest for Earth, Wing Commander: Privateer and the X series of space trading games.


X series doesn't look bad...

X is pretty good, takes a lot of patience to get into though, very much like an offline eve, being in charge of space stations, fleets, trade routes, dynamic economy etc etc, and it's very pretty.

Elite 4 won't be out for ages yet, next year if you're really lucky... I expect we'll see Battle of Britain: Storm of War before we do Elite 4...

e: from some random forum, posted in 2005:
Due for release on 29/09/2006

So, er, yeah, don't be expecting it ANY time soon

Elite 4 has been in development for at least 50 years now. It would be great if it actually does get released, but after all this time I'm not holding my hopes too high.

X is quality. Apart from the fact that it's seriously power hungry.

I was gonna ask you that. It's Fringey. Look him up. He's very, very emo looking indeed. I rolled him up for a joke thinking I'd probably only play the trial and I've been stuck with him ever since. As Rob said the other day, "your character always looks like he's staring down at a dead kitten."

Fuck knows. Had to edit a few posts back to what they were and the only thing I can think of is leaving that PC logged in. That said I was also pretty drunk that night so fuck knows, maybe I did do it.

e; why are you reading my posts comparing edit dates?

I'm not making a point of it. I just happened to be on that thread, saw "I might join goonfleet", remembered "at least I'm not in goonfleet" and wondered which came first.

No idea. To be honest I'm tempted to stick an alt in goonfleet mostly for forum and TS access so I can bask in the warm glow of glory when BoB finally move back to empire. It's a matter of effort though.
