looking for a game like Jumpgate or the old Elite

travisltravisl Member Posts: 3

I really miss the old "space trading" type of game, where a major part of your activity is to "buy stuff at one planet and sell it at another."  I was really hoping for the "new version of Jumpgate" but that appears to be dead forever :(

Can anyone point me to some similar type of game?  I've tried Eve but I got lost long before learning enough about it to know if it fits the bill or not, and since it isn't free I was unable to keep trying harder.

Thanks!

    Free dl (~230 MB), free to play in the training sector, free 8 hour trial once you leave, no cc required.  If you are a fan of JG or Elite you owe it to yourself to check out this game.  I've been playing since 2003 (I hail from X-Wing and the old Escape Velocity series before that).

    Vendetta may be JUST what I was looking for - thanks!  I've grabbed it and played through the first couple of training missions on my lunch break - can't wait to get home!

    It seems very much like Jumpgate / Elite, but with a couple of changes that I've seen already that I'm going to REALLY LOVE!

    You can turn "physics mode" on and off to make moving around simpler or more realistic.

    You don't have to die 12 times while docking :)

    Awesome!

    Thanks to the person who mentioned Oolite too.  I should have said that I'd really like it to be "online" instead of single player.  But still, given what I asked for, that is great information!
