Someone playing Crimson Skies here? I am playing it online
sometimes because most people what to recuit you instead of
playing with you in the XvT/XWA rooms. It is a pretty nice
action flightsim which runs much better than XvT/XWA online.
The gameplay reminds me a bit of starlancer exept that the AI
is a bit smarter and wingmen are a bit more usefull. The main
problem is that the game let's you design your own craft
which are much more powerfull than stock planes flown by
AI opponents. This is also a problem in multi games. A pilot
who flies a well designed craft which fits his playing style
has a serious advantage over another pilot who hasn't got a
good custom plane.

I think that X-Wing author Michael A. Stackpole has something to do with that game.

You need a really high-end compy to play that thing. Little 350 Pentium IIs are a tad to slow to keep up... http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif
