Fredriksson and fully fleshed out with a simple resource management engine, Base building and tons of units blowing each other up. This open source game is on the April 2010 Issue of Klikdisc and where as not perfect by any means demonstrates that a RTS styled game is a possibility in the MMF2 Tool!

I remember playing a Terminal Orbit a few years ago...

That intro cinematic was insane! I'll have to come back and play some more when I'm done approving all these downloads.

I remember looking at 2003 or so?

Yes it has been a LONG while....

But know you get to play it! We will probably have a contest at to see who can make the Best RTS out of the opensource, IE fix all the little bugs, etc

From what i last knew about this game is that it was supposed to be done in contruct with gamesare doing the graphics sound and music.

(check below for info including some screenshots)

Is this version older or the same as the demo tiger submitted a while ago here:

Just wondering.

No this a fresh build of the game for Klikdisc, Tiger never got it workin in MMF and has not been able to focus on the project since Construct, Gamesare did all the elements for Terminal Orbit over 7 years ago And tigs was to do the engine., and he agreed that I needed to put the elements to good use. Hence the open source Game in MMF. Not necessarily the scope of grandeur we had in mind, but if it helps someone build a great RTS in MMF then I think that will be worth it.

I remember reading about this game, possibly on Klik-me, although I could have sworn that it was Tigerworks who was making it. Looks like it's shaping up beautifully!

I beat the demo, now I've got to get the klik-disc

IS the mfa commented?
Posted by Kisguri 20th April, 2010

I remember being on the BETA team for this, cant wait to play it again!

After a quick play it has become obvious this is an earlier build - however I was happy to finally watch the intro video (even with the spelling mistakes )

4/5 as the version I played ages ago had a much nicer menu system in and out of game.
