Ok, after sifting through the web board, and posting some messages, I have now decided that telling the masses about a plug I am developing (its almost in Beta stage, however it lacks original spacecraft graphics) would be a good idea. It is for Escape Velocity, however as soon as the EV version is released I will work up to EVO, and then Nova.
The Idea is: Its set in the 26th century (2501) to be exact. One central power has taken control of the large part of the known universe. This Power is known as the Earth Galactic Community. They have the Earth Stellar Navy to back them up as well so they manage to impose their rule pretty easily. Other groups like the Earth Trading Conglomerate, the Democratic Republic of Rigel, the United Krugan Republic, and the United Peoples Resistance Front cause problems and such as you get further into the plug.
I plan to give the plug a bit of verve (what IS verve?) by incorperating cool strings of missions into it that will allow the player to join a naval fleet, carry out assassinations, invade alien planets, solve diplomatic relations, become a resistance fighter, join a smuggling ring, eat cheese, and then ultimatly be destroyed by a Government conspiracy (but I wouldn't want to give away the plot, would I?).
The Galaxy, ships (not graphix), weapons, outfits, etc have been finished. I am now focusing on straightening out bugs, writing missions, and trying to make headway with the graphix (hopefully with the help of others).
Any input on what I have just said would be greatly appreciated, and hopefully a beta version will surface in a couple of months time... but no promises.
