Hi zack.

I haven't actually tried fallthrough myself. on my old desktop, whenever I attempted to run dos programs under xp, I got truly horrible lag issues.


On my laptop and new desktop though, these don't seem to happen at all.

I'll investigate fallthrough sinse that sense of infinite possibilities sounds deffinately fun.

Oh, and to anticipate questions, it can be downloaded from http://www.classicgaming.com/ascii/

though they concentrate on rogue and other aski graphics games, they also seem to have some doss text adventure games as well, ---- including fallthrough.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi,
Agreed. A friend of mine walked me through a brief session of Spore a while back. The really neat thing was that aforementioned procedural generation along with the uploading of user content. The two combined to create what were, I gather, very visually distinctive and unique worlds. The sense of possibilities and exploration there was tremendous. It's this sense of infinite possibilities which I like about Fallthru, even though that isn't in the scifi mode and isn't multiplayer.
Best,
Zack.

that would be interesting to create your own universe, creatures, etc, from the user point of view.
I have a friend that has just got spore.
You are able to create life from components, and have a semi age of empires with it. work through the ages till you get to the space age, and then colonise other worlds, etc.
He showed me part of it it is sertainly interesting.

Hi Dark,

This is something I've been interested in making. One thing I love is
procedural generation. You can create an entire universe using only that.
The trick of course is the game play and making it interesting. Right now it has to stay an interest only while I work on Entombed. I'm fascinated by the
possibility though.

Hi.

a combination of reading starwars novels, playing Eamon and Sryth, and
watching my brother play Final fantasy crysis core on the psp is really
getting me in the mood for something scifi, but every online game I've
looked at in a scifi setting seems to be either a, galactic empire building
pvp stratogy, or B, galactic ship sales pvp trading!

I must admit i'm getting a litle hacked off here. for me, one of the major attractions of startrek, starwars, doctor who, babylon 5 etc is exploration
of the various worlds, different land scapes and alien races.

of course as these are works of fiction I'm also interested in the
characters, the politics etc, but from a purely scifi point of view
(particularly in something like Starwars or Doctor who which has a very!
diverse landscape), there's quite a lot of stuff to explore.

I find it completely astonishing that every single scifi game has only
focused on the statistical elements of player interaction and/or combat, ---- and to be brutally honest, find it rather silly. Afterall, if people want to play the stock markit, they can just pick up the financial times.

while I can see the attraction of pvp combat (though as I've said before it's not something which interests me at all), I'm amazed that nobody has
developed an online scifi game which does not have this focus.

Admitedly I'm probably expecting a lot, afterall, the only things I've
found in the pure fantasy genre along these lines are Sryth and various
gamebooks, ---- and to a lesser extent any of the Logd or KoL varients.

smugglers 4 I really like for the non linnier game structure, missions and
backstory, though I'm slightly disappointed that the actual planets
themselves don't play a larger part in the game in terms of being unique locations, and also that there weren't any new systems to go to in S4 as
compared to S3.

eitherway though, S4 isn't an online game.

Basically, what I'm looking for is Sryth in space, ie, you have your
spaceship, fly around and have adventures, ----- basically sryth, in space!

If anyone knows a game like that I'd be interested to here about it, ----
possibly a mud? ---- though i admit I have heard many muds are pvp stat
grinders.

Any input here would be appreciated.
