Would it be possible to include the race called Dewndldee from the original starflight games. Their attitude and personalities were one of my favorite things about those games. Also being able to take on other races as crew members was cool.

I'd like to see some sort of CASINO added to the Starport. Something simple would be fine where down on their luck players could gamble a few dollars and hope for a big payday... or at least a helpful one to buy that extra fuel they need... Even if it just has one simple kind of game would be cool.. maybe a lottery.. or roulette wheel or something... I think it would really add a nice feature to the game...

Things I'd like to see:

1) when in range of a planet, single hotkey starts orbit
2) when in range of a star, single hotkey enters the system
3) auto pilot - when enabled, simply click on the destination and the ship will fly towards that point.
4) auto insertion of new endurium crystals
5) ability to specify where on the planet you want to land
6) animated planet landing and liftoff sequence, like starflight 1 and 2
7) ability to train personel at starport

New to the game, and new to the forum. Looks like interest has markedly dropped. Is there any news about anything currently happening?

Could it be done...An entire remake of this game. Same story line, Same Training and crew abilities, Ship enhancements..etc...With todays graphics and sound. Planet and Solar system Generation etc..
I think this game with all the modern graphics and sound would be unbelievable and again would be the RPG game that sets the bar.

This is my first post and If there is such a game out there I would like to know about it. I tried playing a game called "Eve". It looked like an attempt to do a Starflight type upgrade. Didn't make much sense, some good graphics but I found it hard to understand and difficult to move.
Does anyone know if there is any attempt out there to upgrade this fantastic game using the advanced graphic and sound that is now being used for games that are not nearly as unique as this one. I played Starflight Project "Flying Dutchman" back in the 80's. It was by far not only the best Dos game I ever played...but I must say..it is Probably the best computer game I ever played. If it could be taken to the next level (which is quite a leap I'm sure) and programmed to give the graphics and sound that is used today I think there would have to be banks of servers to accommodate all the players that would be playing this amazing game!

If there is something in the works that anyone knows about, please let me know!...Thank you.

I love this game.. its great to see you guys are still working on it as last time I visited here it looked dead as.

Admittedly I haven't tried the latest version yet (I've been playing one from 2yrs ago) so my comments could be out of date. Personally I really like the game's graphics and playability in space and on the station, however I really struggle on planets. I guess I'm spoilt from years playing the genesis/mega drive remake of starflight 1 but I find myself longing for better graphics and better controls. Hunting creatures feels like its half impossible as its all so fast and the animation so simple. The terrain textures are pretty good but they get very repetitive as each planet needs more variety and extra terrain details (eg trees, hills, lakes, rivers etc).

But man you guys have created an amazing game. You did what the Starflight 3 project couldn't and created a full Starflight game.. and sadly you may forever be the only ones to do this! Much respect!
