I came an interesting game dev discord the other day, some of the screenshots had that old PE atmosphere vibishness, but looks like it has a way to go before being available, and not clear if it is an mmo or single player.

I am curious what other space games everyone is playing besides PE? I keep yearning for that 2003 experience of Project Entropia. :cry:

Please don't recommend that dead dumpster fire project ion... lol.

MMOs

There are literally hundreds of F2P MMOs out there... each with some aspect that is similar to this game in some ways.

What's was nice about Neverwinter and it's space sister, Star Trek Online is that you could actually build levels for them if I remember correctly. Been a few years since I played, but the level design aspect was something fun. In this game only Planet Partners get to have that sortt of fun. Potential is there for Mindark to let individual players have that level of fun, but nah, it'll never happen in here...

Guess that player level creation went bye bye, sadly... https://www.pcgamer.com/star-trek-online-and-neverwinter-are-losing-player-created-missions/ Very sad to see that gone as that was one of the few reasons I ever played those games, lol.

DC Universe online is kind of fun. Played that a while back when it first came out. Gets a little boring fast but some of the concepts like having an estate in game, instances, loot boxes, etc. are somewhat similar. Plus it's nice to just fly around the city without having to have a vehicle like you have to have in this game...

It'd be tempting to discuss some of the new games included in white papers not so long ago such as the new games Neverdie is creating and the new planets that Mindark is creating but well, all of those are non-existent at the moment... and little games like Dragon King that were existent seem to have fallen apart and are non-existent at the moment. Bubble for Bitcoin burst so I guess Mindark and Neverdie don't want to go that direction anymore, at least as it's associated with this game, although I think Mindark is still trying to sell some sort of Green ICO that isn't game related...

Interesting reading over at http://www.entropiaplanets.com/thre...and-eth-neverdie-studios-26-march-2018.22098/

and over at http://www.entropiaplanets.com/threads/the-legend-neverdies.22520/

and http://www.entropiaplanets.com/thre...he-tokens-1-green-fund-finance-aka-gff.22430/

Could list many more links here but this is getting a bit off topic, lol.

If you are just in to casual games there's literally hundreds and thousands of them out there... most are nowhere near what this game is, but there is a wide market out there of other stuff that is still fun to play.

Guess you can upload you soul to Mindark's server someday so that you'll live long enough for Mindark to create something interesting besides Entropia...

If you are just after expanding your game library the game deals thread on Entropia Planets is nice... It actually got me setting up https://www.epicgames.com/ as a home page so the weekly freebie can be obtained regularly... ;)

As for games with a sci-fi type feeling, fighting botx etc. some of the latest Metal Gear Games are fun.

Yeah I had a look at it, I think it will fail unfortunately like the other Entropia clones. I feel I have played enough games to know when something smells like failure. I think it looks good on video if you don't look too deep, and I understand it is in early development, if you look closely though you can definitely see broken issues already, and those broken issues seem to stay forever unresolved in nearly all online games now.

I used to love it, but the gameplay isn't the same, as being planet side.

Sadly I think a lot of the games you listed don't even come close to the same feeling as 2003 PE. Not looking for just any old game, or to just expand my libarary. :)

I feel like many of the games you listed is like someone asking for Bladerunner, and someone recommending American Pie, saying well they were both movies. haha :laugh:

I just can't seem to find anything out there that had the potential of old PE 2003. Nothing has even close to the same feel or music, or theme. I play a lot of new games, but nothing seems to fill that empty hole of old PE.
