Never played the original Elite much, I kinda skipped playing it and when I did I didn't get into it. Played Elite 2 : Frontier a massive amount and even had a folder full of planet details so I could get the best trading ::)


Elite Dangerous I’ve tinkered with and should really give that a better go.

Yeah I never played the original Elite, but I did play the Archimedes version and I own Elite Dangerous.

It seems like the sort of game that would suck a lot of your time.  Which I don't have a lot of.

I've got a nice wireframe renderer here if we thought about a demake?

example showing face removal like the original \o/

@iWasAdam, nice looking wireframe renderer there!

I never got into elite, bought it for the Amiga, I was more a Geoff Crammond F1 Grand Prix fan.  Still lives on in my passion for Project Cars 2.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock looks pretty intriguing, possibly a bit homeworld esque?

Bit of a time sucker I imagine though.... its a tough one!

Thanks for hi-lighting its out there.
