Are there anything except the X-series for fans of space sims to look out for anymore?

I am playing Venetta Online.  Nice looking game for only four Devs who created it.

Does have a monthly charge of 9.99 USD and is an mmorpg.

Another one you can try is Evochron Legends.  This one is just a multiplayer or single player, not sure

Too bad Interplay went under & took with it the Descent: Freespace IP. 

Those games were fun :) (heck even the normal Descent games were a blast imho)

Homeworld 1 & 2 are strategy games, they're not space shooters / sims.

As for Space sims, the genre is quite dead.  The last good space sims were Freespace 2 and X-Wing Alliance, IMO, and they came out in '98 or '99.

I wouldn't even call the Rogue Squadron series of games as part of the space sim family.  You fly around in a tiny bubble.  Talk about a lack of freedom in flight...

"I have only two out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (First Lieutenant Clifton B. Cates, US Marine Corps, Soissons, 19 July 1918)

Freespace 2 saw its source code released (2003 iirc), and still has a dedicated community that maintains it. Don't know where to go, but Google is right over there. :)

Vendetta Online is quite possibly the best thing to come along since... the internet.

Pointing out the Obvious to the Oblivious since 2006

2/06/12 9:27:16 PM#14

I've actually been playing Galaxy on Fire 2 on my Android Tablet lately to get my space sim fix. It's a surprisingly very good 'Freelancer' type game. You need a pretty beefy 'droid device to run it though. Runs smooth as silk on my Lenovo K1 nVidia Tegra 2 Tablet. Very nice game for any of you Android/iOS people out there.

Elite on C-64 was the best of them all... Loved that game.

This is a genre that have been lying low for a long time but it might pop up again any time, it do have plenty of potential.

And well, now I am talking about the "trading space sims" alá Elite and Freelancer, not the Space combat sims like Eve and Planteside.

I played Black Prophecy during the European beta last year. That was pretty good. It reminded me of Jump to Lightspeed. It's a freemium game so you can try it out for free. It's in the mmorpg.com game list if you want to check it out.

Jumpgate Evolution is on hold indefinitely.

 

 Jumpgate is still out there http://www.jossh.com/join_today/index.html however the game was bought out and they seem to not care about adding players.  I played the game alot and enjoyed it immensely.

 

  I would love to see another space sim with Neutonian physics.

Yep, this is a genre that could really use a revival. I've been looking for good space combat sims in the last few years but so far haven't been able to find any. JGE sounded interesting but it went into development Hell ages ago.

Evochron Mercenary has the right idea but the production quality of it is just too low for me.

Currently playing: FTL, Hearthstone and Reaper of Souls.
Eagerly anticipating: Divinity: Original Sin, Elite: Dangerous, Legend of Grimrock 2 and Star Citizen.

They should reskin Uncharted Waters with a space theme and instead of going from port to port you fly from planet to planet. Add some new fluff and that would be awesome :)
