Team Name
Digital Brilliance Software

Project name
Galaxy Empire III

Brief description
Galaxy Empire is a futuristic game based on a continuation of the story from the previous two games by the same name. It is a mix of FPS and space based arcade simulation. The single player side will be an open-ended and story based missions to discover what happened to a previous set of colonist who left many years before. It will also deal with current colonies that are disappearing as well. The MP side will be mostly open-ended with the option of player's to complete missions similar to the SP mode.

Target aim
The single player software will be free. The server software will not. It will also consist of a global server which will not be sold, this is to keep out illigitimate servers since there is no direct connect option.

Compensation
None for the time being, that will change later if the server starts selling.

Technology
DirectX 9 is the base renderer using HLSL 3. This is so the game can be played on Windows XP and later versions of Windows. The game is being built from the ground up, it does not use anyone else's game engine. Content within the game is based on freely available tools such as XnView or wordpad. All content is scripted in through plain text INI files. Models are currently based on the .x format with a custom format later on.

Talent needed
Intermediate to advanced content developers
Beginners can help but if your work is sub-par it won't be included
* Voice acting - adult only, there are no children in the game
* UV mappers - many of the stations have not been mapped
* Texturers - ranging from sky boxes to model texturing, no pixilated art will be needed
* Writers - storylines, NPC interactions, cut-scenes etc.
* Modellers - many areas of the game will need models, already have a few good ship models
* Testers - for giving feedback only, anyone is welcome here

Team structure
Lead developer - Lancer Solurus (as in me)

Previous work by team
GE 1 and 2, tons of utilities for Freelancer, major mod as well, 30+ years of programming, too many to list

Additional info
This game is still in the initial development stage. Due to the massive nature of the project it will take some time to develop everything. It is based far into the future and the in-game design will reflect this. It is part mystery, sci-fi and story telling. Additional areas will be added such as full modding support and automatic updating of said mods. The main part of the game will be from the player's POV but there will be additional support for empire building. Procedural generation may be used for making non-scripted areas of the galaxy.

Feedback
Constructive criticism is welcome, feedback just saying the game sucks will be ignored. That type of feedback does not help any project and I consider it trolling.

If it is volunteers you are looking for, good luck. :)

Unfortunately I do live in the US. Whether I end up getting help or not (I have for music tracks already) I will keep on working on it. I've been making great strides in the development of it, just yesterday I got the audio system completely threaded. That means there is no interference from the game and music/sounds keep playing thru any scene changes if need be.

Last week I added in a atmosphere shader which doubles as a crespular ray renderer (god rays).
