Space Wars: 3D Star Combat Simulator

Don't know how to start a thread about a new game but this one looks interesting and suprised I don't see any thread about it's release. Maybe I'm tripping on it looking good. Any mods that know how to delete and start an actual thread on this game I'd be grateful!

That does look pretty good. I'll post the info when I'm back on my laptop.

yep, I recognize all 7 shown in the screenshots. Unless those models are public domain, this game will probably be pulled pretty soon, too bad too, it looked good!

Actually, this is from the UselessCreations.com folks; they've been using the same ship models on their screensavers for longer than WarpGate has been out.

this one crossed my radar earlier, looking interesting!

Somewhat in the style of Star Rangers.

It's not a dual stick shooter, it's a space combat game like Wing Commander or Conflict Freespace.

It works and all that but it doesn't feel very good ATM, not because of bad controls or anything but just as a result of getting little feedback (e.g. shots are small so you can't see them travel past the first few dozen meters and it's very hard to judge if you're hitting a distant enemy). Maybe larger impact effects/brighter shield effects and a target status display (shields and hull) would help and of course brighter/larger laser shots. Wingman chatter would liven it up (DO A BARREL ROLL!).

Also a missed opportunity is that the Cobra only goes up to Mk. II, no Cobra Mk. III in this game!
