I (Tobin Mueller) started this game as a collaboration between 6 guys. I was supposed to be the writer, the story guy who wrote the missions. But my programmers never came through, so I became the reluctant programmer, dedicating 300 hours to programming stuff. Well, I burned out last September, so the project faultered, tragically, near completion.
All the artists did their job, as you've seen from the great art. I applaud their skill and dedication. What I need now are people, like you, to download the almost completed plugs below and fix them for me. Then change their name and upload them back to me (into the ftp.artsforge.com folder)
The fixes include programming ships to move right, etc.; programming shipyards to offer the correct ships/outfits; fixing stuff in missions; and generally helping me with upbeat, can-do attitudes.
It's been so long that I have forgotten most of what I learned in EV-Edit, etc., and what I wrote in the missions. So if you have questions are coding assistance, be specific.
