Additional System Requirements: openAL # python-openAL.

Singleplayer: Yes

Multiplayer: Not in near future.

Demo: No (freeware)

Description: Privateer Remake is Space simulation game of the original Privateer which was an old DOS game (one of the greatest game at the time). Trading, mission, buy better ships and/or upgrade.

 

<from HappyPenguin.org>Privateer is a classic old DOS game in the tradition of Elite, where you start off with a beat up spaceship and a couple credits and you have to trade and work your way up. Gameplay is free-form, there is a plotline but you can choose to ignore plot missions for as long as you want. Random mission generators give you plenty to keep you occupied if you just want to do your own thing. This is a pretty faithful remake of Privateer using the VegaStrike space sim framework, but with OpenGL graphics, new missions, more fixers, and the ablility to extend the game and add more content. The Privateer Remake crew is currently looking for some Linux users to test out their game.

Notes: Privateer uses Vega Strike Engine, but works as a standalone game.

Description: The player can create bus and rail connections and transport passengers, mail and goods in and between cities and industries. Even passenger ferries and oil tankers are included in the game. Goods are produced by industries from raw materials, sometimes over many steps of intermediate products. I.e. coal and iron ore are needed to produce steel in a steel mill. Oil may be transformed to plastics in a refinery. Plastics and steel are used to build cars by the car industry. Finally the cars are sold in the cities. Now they need gas to run, which also will be produced at the refinery.

All goods need to be transported. This is the players task. Transport the goods and let the industry live up. But be careful not to destroy your environments.
