Aussie Pilot, newbie and excited


Recommended Posts

I haven't a whole lot of experience in these types of games, being a bit young when Freelancer first came out, but hearing Chris Roberts pitch this game and talk about what he wants it to be; it's exactly the type of game I dreamed about when I was younger, after playing something like Rogue Squadron.

 

Massively excited for this, and happy to be part of such a great community.

 

Cheers.

Thanks for the Welcome guys. Any suggestions on the best currently available game similar to Star Citizen to get some practice in. Thought I might cut my teeth on Freelancer, but its proving tough to acquire!

Welcome Whiterius, it's nice to meet a fellow Aussie pilot in the Imperium fleet!

 

Re games to recommend, my own interests lie mainly in space combat so if you have not played it, I would definitely recommend Freespace 2. Not only can you get the game for $10 at gog.com (http://www.gog.com/game/freespace_2), but there is also a community of Freespace 2 players and modders who have updated and improved the game's graphics (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php). The latest build looks great and being Freespace 2, provides some of the best space combat experiences going around!

I remember playing my dad's copy of it ages ago but can't for the life of me find it now.

FS2 is good, as are mods using Freespace Editor 2 (FRED2) such as diaspora (completely free). Also, Evochron Mercenary is a full newtonian space-trader game with atmospheric flight. The physics are so unforgiving in their pursuit of realism, it is very difficult to master combat. If you can fight in Evochron Mercenary, you can fight in Star Citizen.
