Liked the Port? There are many other campaigns in the works that use the Port mod. Here are a few of them. Most are in progress.
Project co-leaders: GalacticEmperor and Goober5000
The Port team reviews the entire Silent Threat campaign, fixing the incoherent plotline and annoying bugs while keeping the same storyline and adding new missions. It will still be Silent Threat, but much more polished and refined, with better gameplay and mission design.
Here are some other projects that don't use the Port, but are still very much worth looking at.
Project leader: Sesquipedalian
A Vasudan campaign set some 10 to 15 years after the destruction of Capella, The Scroll of Atankharzim offers a rich and dynamic gaming experience. A fantastic storyline weaves together elements from the highest examples of myth and epic with the science fiction adrenaline of FreeSpace 2.
Project leader: Tolwyn
Tolwyn basically saved the day on the ST:R voice processing front, so we're much obliged to him for his help. His project, an original campaign set in the Wing Commander universe but using the FreeSpace engine, is well worth checking out as well. There is a full-featured prologue release available to play.
