    and like I just said, you dont have to give a damn about the economy outside of how much the parts on that guys ship you just blew up will go for.

    Thanks for all suggestion guys!

    I miss the times of air combat games (rouge squadron, Apache ..etc ) when it was actually with proper joystick support, im not asking for a 1:1 simulation, just the heck more advanced than freaking left right up down and fire controls.

    Hopefully Ace Combat comes to WiiU at least , probably wont to PC.

    Because im pissed on BF3 how buggy and arcadey those Jets are and just ....

    E.V.E Online, no doubt.

    Yes, they still have a daily downtime for servermaintenance. Which is only 20min or so.

    I played Elite on an Apple WAAAAAY back when, and some early PC's... loved that game... Still have the box upstairs next to The Elder Scrolls:Arena :)

    Downloaded Freespace 2 and the OSP this morn before I left for work, will play some this weekend and check it out. Also going to check out the Evochron demo and see if it's worth the $25. Man... Torchlight 2 has GOT to come out soon, my bank account is getting pounded trying to find something to fill the empty void heheh

    EVE Online is more like a job than a game.

    True, true.. I'd forgotten.. but SOSE doesn't have the flight sim to it. It's more of a .... Civilization in space...

    WHAT? How is Sins of a Solar Empire in ANY WAY similar to Eve? SOASE is a STRATEGY game where you research tech ala starcraft and control fleets of ships and send them to attack other AI players ships. Eve is completely different. lol.

    SOASE can only be seen as a RTS version of E.V.E if you really wanna compare the two.

    No, that was a game by the name of Alpha Centauri. One of the greatest Simulation games ever created. I am still waiting for a sequel\remake of that game using modern technology. It would be incredible...

    Point :), and an excellent game


    Still, my point was that SOSE was more of an RTS (Age of Empires might be a closer analogy :) ), than a space flight sim/fighter.

    The problem with EVE (maybe not a problem for some) is that its not Twitch... you just click to a location and your ship goes there... I am under the assumption that the OP wants a twitch game.

    As most have posted, there if Freelancer which is a great game and some mods out there that really change a lot of things. Black Prophecy is ok... the company isn't doing too hot right now so it may not be around much longer. You could go on Steam and look at the X3 series. If you want a quick fix, you could also look at Ace Online . Its a F2P space type shooter.

    Hope you find something to your liking! :toast:

    Echoing what some others here have said, a new Wing Commander series reboot and/or a X-Wing/Tie fighter series reboot would firmly snatch money from my wallet faster than a hooker. :pimp:

    I did bust out my FS2 discs and installed the FS2 Open stuff. Gonna play with it. Gotta bust out and dust off ye ole flight stick LOL.

    looks like the wingcommander reboot that goes live 3/22 would be the best bet for the op.

    I do play and like Star Trek online, but like EVE the game can become tedious and start to feel like work if you get too into it.

    there honestly hasn't been much in the flying department since the late 90's that goes for space and air. My joystick has been collecting dust for a long long time.

    EVE Online sets the bar for space-based MMOs and you should accept no substitute.

    But as said, it isn't a joystick-control flight-sim like game. Combat is more akin to Nexus: The Jupiter Incident (just without the ability to pause, and with human, and thus smart(er) opponents).

    The other thing to keep in mind about EVE is that it is a cold, harsh, massive, complicated universe. If you can't be bothered with complexity, or are afraid of others peeing in "your" sandbox, then do not apply!

    I'm afraid I have to differ here. Not liking an aspect of the game doesn't make you biased one way or the other, it just means you have an opinion. By your logic, you should not comment either, as you're obviously biased for it (by having an opinion).

    And in defense of disliking it in general, even WoW doesn't have to restart the servers every day, heck even in early closed beta we didn't have to worry about a reboot EVERY day, just sometimes 4 or 5 times an hour :roll: I wouldn't be overly fond of a need to reboot the server every day either....
