This isn't 3000AD, this is the sequal.
Did you play it, by the way? Going by the creators name usually is a sure way to judging prematurely. ^_^

Derek Smart is a nutcase who wouldn't know how to make a good, or even playable game if he was locked in a room with the staff of the classic Sierra, Microprose, Capcom, Konami, Origin, SSI and other such companies, and they were forced to try and teach him how.

Ah, so you played all his games without bias, and know him personally, then. Nice ^_^

Ah well, your choise. You might miss out on something, maybe not *shrugs*
It doesn't really matter. I for me had a load of fun with this game, despite it's faults, and imho it's a good game if you take the time and effort to get into it.

Ah, right. Well, fair enough then. It just sounded a bit as though your low opinion of the game was entirely based on somebody else's low opinion of the maker, which seemed a bit odd to me.

I wanted to see if the opinion of the heroic Something Awful writers was right. Turns out it is.

So, DS is a nutter? So what? I like this game: I always, since the days of flight sims on my C64, wanted to play something like this. I must say that it comes pretty darn close to my wishes. If I'm to put an ugly finger at anything, it has to be what's been said: You can't walk around inside the ship, and it has some really wacky bugs. One of my tanks went into hyperspace, for instance. Ok, one more thing: There's periods of waiting... looooooong periods of waiting. But overall, I find the game sweet enough to be more than playable. :bleh:

Believe it or not but in a day in which I really had nothing to do I looked around for a new game to try and I stopped on this one.

I am afraid that it is true that this game is really badly done. I would not rate it higher than a 2 and even that is a lot... But at the same time this game is challenging and quite addicting so I still continue to play it. :D

So, anybody have hints and tips about what to do in this game? I didn't like the roam mode idea because I need a goal to be able to be efficient in a game. I thought the campaign would thus be a good idea but so far it looks like the game would be way more enjoyable if I wasn't tied to do missions and such.

So far I learned that the only viable way to go in this game is send your flagship alone at a set destination point for the mission then jump the AE in a shuttle and start doing selling runs. About half an hour of boring trade between Earth and Syrius net enough money to purchase about 30-35 fighters or mining drones and you have enough time to do that and get back to your ship for mission two.

The most stupid part of this game I learned the hard way is that your capital ship is not really "capital" in any way. You are always better to get a ship which can field fighters because a few fighters can easily down a "capital" ship in a few seconds. Fighters and fighter pilots die/get destroyed just as easily but of course they are way easier to replace/clone.

What about the exploration part of this game? Anything interesting to find out once you're set free to "roam" the map?

Don't worry Frodo. I'm not surprised at all, this game learning curve is so steep it practically goes 90 degrees... :/

That won't stop me though. The bugs and constant crashes coupled with a lack of autosaving will however probably eventually do...
