Other game emulator news

Some good progress being made out there in sci-fi emulator land...

InfiniteRasa:

Finally a real Tabula Rasa project has emerged and they have made quite a bit of headway in a short amount of time. One can already download a game/auth server and a DB package and even have some stuff to shoot at.

There never really were many missions in TR, but the game was a lot like massive multiplayer Halo (had a kick ass MMO/FPS targeting system, and very good instancing technology)

EvEmu:

They now support the Apocrypha and Incursion clients. You cannot do much yet , but you can fly around, shoot some stuff, and do a bit of mining (story of most emulators lol)..oh wait that's all you do in the live game too! :D At any rate this project has also come back to life after a hiatus.

A good project to examine if you want to see LOTS of Python in action (as all of Eve is written in stackless Python, client and server.)

CellAO:

The projecto underwent a change of hands, and is being run by a new team. They are not taking new team members or accepting code submissions, but you can check out read-only copies of the code and build it yourself.

AO game mechanics are a LOT like pre-CU SWG (skill system, missions, factional warfare, player cities and housing, and has a player merchant system more advanced than SWG's in some ways, etc.) Its gfx are cira 2001 though, very dated.
