    Actually the main issue was happening due to not set the DNS settings properly. I reset the DNS settings first, then reinstalled the game. After doing this methods perfectly, the problem got solved. Now I am not getting any such kind of error while playing the game. I must say this article https://www.thewindowsclub.com/fix-the-roblox-error-code-403 helped a lot to identify the issue and resolved it.

    I’m kind of surprised that Egosoft didn’t do a Boron expansion (using fan suggestions on how to achieve their look and mobility in non-liquid environments)

    Quoting myself here lol as they finally done it! Egosoft are creating another addon pack for X4 and are bringing back the water based Borons! I’ve been asking for this for years and years! Every time people would say it’s impossible I’d pitch my ‘stations with separate water areas and Boron encounter suits for the normal dry areas’ idea and how it could work in the X4 engine. So to now see that they’ve actually done that and made it a reality makes me so happy, as this is pretty much what I pictured in my mind years ago. And I loved the extra touch of redoing the good old Kingdom End music too.

    Rubbish… just another program/browser getting paranoid about classic http sites without SSL certification. So basically every old site out there on the net now triggers big scary warnings in browsers when literally nothing has changed on the site and there’s nothing dangerous at all. Anyway my old site does actually have certification but the redirect from http to https isn’t working despite me ticking the box on my hosting control panel. I really gotta visit every forum I have an account on and update my sig to the newer https address but haven’t got around to it yet. Have just updated my sig here though so that should stop messages like that coming up. And I’m gonna go pester my host about fixing the redirect.

    Well here we are 3 years on and unfortunately there hasn’t been another attempt at a Starflight 3 game crowdfund or a new demo. However recently the first ever Starflight Anthology book was released and to celebrate that occasion something really cool happened! I run the Starflight fan communities so as a ‘thanks’ I got invited to take part in a group video podcast interviewing non other than Starflight lead dev and creator Greg Johnson himself!

    I was a nervous wreck as I don’t normally do live stuff, and I think I was the only non-American on there so people were probably wondering what I was saying half the time lol, plus on top of that my giant 46" screen was glaring on my face making me look like a bloody ghost haha… but in the end I had a blast as it was so cool to talk to one of the creators of a game I played so much as a kid, not to mention getting thanked by him for my Starflight community work! Greg was a super nice and humble guy and he told so many great stories about creating Starflight, and his very popular ToeJam & Earl console games, along with his consultation work on the Star Control games and Spore which many of us didn’t know about! He even discussed the possibility of a Starflight and Star Control crossover game which would be pretty crazy! And sure enough he confirmed that the original Starflight games were heavily influenced by Star Trek heh.

    He also confirmed that the dream of Starflight 3 is not dead and that just a week ago he was on the phone with someone trying to secure funding for it. He talked about his dreams of what the sequel could be and he showed openness to trying another crowdfund campaign. We did our best to assure him that the Starflight fan community is in a WAY better state then it was back in 2018 when they last tried the crowdfund as back then all the big old Starflight forums were gone and there was only around 100 people in my ‘new’ Starflight Fans Facebook group so there was just no one to friggin tell about it! That’s up around 400ish members now, plus I’ve since created a Starflight Fans Reddit group which is closing on 100 now, and best of all there’s the Official Starflight 3 Discord I help out on as a moderator which is now up to a massive 800ish members, so that’s over a 1000 starflight fans that weren’t around in 2018 so we’re getting there! The games sold millions of copies back in the day so there’s certainly still plenty of long lost Starflight fans out there though! If there’s any Starflight old timers lurking around here I hope you come join the gang! 🙂

    Anyway, here’s the video podcast if anyone is interested. I posted a comment on youtube with timestamps of interesting topics should people wish to skip to stuff that interests them…

    There was more I wanted to say on there but yeah… obviously the podcast wasn’t about me haha… but I got to say most of what I wanted. Really the only big thing I didn’t get to say on the podcast was that I’m excited to read the new Starflight - Tales From The Starport Lounge anthology book (I’ve ordered it from Amazon but it hasn’t arrived yet as it’s probably on a slow ship heading for Australia lol!). I’m not a huge book person but I just had to get this as like I said earlier in the stream video it’s amazing how playing a game and reading a book about an adventure set in that same game universe really enhances the experience. The game makes you love the book more and helps your imagination visualize the aliens and places they’ll go to in the book. While vice versa the book makes you love the game more as it adds so much depth to the game universe and makes you crave going on your own adventures similar to the ones these new characters your reading about are going on. They both really buff and lift up each other to a whole new level forming this equilibrium of awesomeness haha! I had that experience with the Starflight manual short stories as a kid, and I had it in the years since with other games like Elder Scrolls Oblivion, Witcher, and the X Universe series space games that all have novels or short stories set in the same universe. So hopefully I’ll like the new book and get to have that experience again with Starflight! Once thing’s for sure, I already know I like the cover haha!

    Just upgraded my rig recently. Ryzen 5 2600X, RTX 2060… should run it well. ;D But the main point was to have 1000000 FPS in Freelancer of course.

    Yeah you’ll be fine… unlike me haha.

    Oh and it looks like the final Night City Wire Episodes 4 and 5 came out a little while back…

    And of course the game is out this week… although it’s apparently a massively buggy mess which shouldn’t surprise anyone lol.

    If people have given up on it for now and are waiting for patches maybe they should check out what I found… I recently noticed a review in a recent PC Gamer magazine of a small indie game called ‘Cloudpunk’ that has you piloting a flying taxi around a rainy cyberpunk city at night. Looks and sounds awesome as that cockpit has massive Blade Runner vibes, the taxi reminds me of 5th Element and that creepy stormy sky reminds me of Highlander 2 lol!

    Apparently there’s not much depth to the gameplay sadly as it’s more about immersion. However considering I was more looking forward to driving around Cyberpunk 2077’s city at night listening to synth tunes instead of just running around shooting people then I suspect this little game will be right up my alley haha! Apparently you get your own apartment in a sky scraper with a balcony looking over the city that you can decorate and play retro video games in, so hmm yup that’s got me written all over it too lol! Although yet again my old computer probably can’t even run this one either arrrgh haha!

    Lol, today is exactly a month later than my review. I hardly play NMS anymore; it rapidly got tedious, plus the Dev team keeps releasing updates that are intended to fix things, but these seem to also randomly change how things work; besides they introduce new errors (or at least, issue-ish phenomenons). So, that is that.

    I purchased both Empyrion: Galactic Survival and Space Engineers. These are both games where you find yourself having to build your own stuff (bases, vehicles). I haven’t much looked into Space Engineers sofar, but I am learning to get along in Empyrion (at least, with the building function in creative mode.)

    Both of these games are in their alpha stages, and have been that for several years by now. Seems to be the trend.

    The fact the game is open source and managed by the community rather than Microsoft also makes it a rather different beast.

    If we ever got OpenFL or something, we could probably do a similar thing.

    Check out the latest video which I find quite epic:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGcG0g7GsOI

    Tune in at minute 13:00

    Also at minute ~44 remember Planet Houston? Looks like in SC it’s called Planet Hurston 😉

    I’ll watch the video when home again. (Youtube consumes my limited mobile internet bundle rapidly, and I’ve already been watching a couple of Isaac Arthur videos (highly recommended btw!) yesterday evening.)

    I actually have a SC account, with a ship and Squadron42. But at the moment there isn’t much to do tbh. I have good hopes, but even it’ll eventually turn out to be vaporware I won’t regret it; my buying of the game was also intended as a salute to Chris Roberts.

    Nonetheless it’d be cool to eventually meet some of you in that universe 😄

    Howdy, I have been lurking around here once in a while. Been playing around with some graphic post FX a bit to relearn HLSL. The other main focus has been getting a pipeline from MakeHuman into the game engine. Finally got a working solution just last week, which you saw in the video as Amy. Anyways, you guys keep up the good work on FL!
