Bob has gone ahead and captured a variety of screenshots from the Freelancer single player missions using the latest build of the Reckoning mod. There's some really great Vindicator, Hornet and Thunderbolt action to see, and those are just the beginning of the Wing Commander ships included in this project.
It looks like a lot of fun. We reported about the download and installation options for The Reckoning last week. You can discuss these latest shots at Crius.net here.
One of our sibling sites in the Ultima community, UO Stratics is reporting about a neat focus group for people who have played Ultima Online. If you live near San Francisco, California, you might be eligible to talk about your likes, dislikes and viewpoints on the game. They're looking for about seventy current and former players to participate, and each person will receive $100. The events will be held in just a couple days, so if this sounds like your kind of thing, get involved immediately.
Are you a former Ultima Online subscriber? Do you live in the San Jose or San Francisco areas? Do you want a $100? All you have to do is tell the Origin team what they should do with the next Ultima Online project! Origin, through a contracted research firm, will be conducting focus groups Feb. 4 and 5 in Sunnyvale, CA (near San Francisco and San Jose). There will be six groups, with 10 to 12 people in each.
You can find more information in Stratics' new post here.
If you are interested in participating, call Nichols Research at 1-408-773-8200, ext 2020 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Mention "Project #C3032" when you contact them.
