{Dwarden's edit to correct game name}

This is promising looking MMO set in 10k future between stars

http://www.infinity-...inity/index.php

sidenote: very impressive showcase of procedural coding
{edit end}

I stumble up on an interesting thing when googeling. It is the world's massivness that just amazes me. Something for you to kill some time with and also get a bit blown away by a big game world...

It's a space game that is 1 year from alpha (as i understand it). And people will be able to fly around and explore space, land on any planet (it is so massive - this is what amazes me). And you can fight others if you want etc etc. Take a look at the small tech demo video and then check screens on the site. You thaught ArmA had a big streaming (non-loading) world?

Dont take your eyes off the video until it ends...

EDIT: Added another tech demo vid:

Just a fun thing to check and kill some time. Posted Image

I've seen this quite some time ago but didn't expect those guys keeping up the good work. Looks really promising Posted Image

I remember watching the trailer for this. At the bit when it zoomed right out, I damn near had a nerdgasm. Looks extremely ambitious, if it ever comes out I am so getting it.

previously we had laugh from uber-trees, now they "justify it somehow" making silly explanation "cause falling tree may confuse rabit and seals on beach of south America wont copulate, which will cause natural disaster and overpopulation of carrots and fish "

I've been kind of following this for the last 5 years, it seems to need a serious cash injection to be finished (or at least usable) any time soon. To be honest, I haven't seen 5 years worth of development in the latest video, unless all the work is game engine-centric. The actual rendering seems to be pretty much the same as it was 5 years ago.

Also, 5 years ago they released a video showing that those landscapes had a physics engine implemented, I remember seeing a number of spheres released to bounce & roll down a mountain. And also a space station with internal cities and parked spacecraft. I think it's going to be a long time coming guys :)
Feel like ArmA is letting you down in some way? Watch this:

Guess the biggest difference is the infinite universe and the direct controls. That was the reason why I didn't bought Eve (after I finally got caught by the fourth try of the trial version) - you just point and click...

I've heard that only 8 people are working on the project.
Is that true?
