Vega Strike- A 3D Action-Space-Sim opensource game

Vega Strike is a 3-D space simulation game that lets you trade, fight, and explore in a vast universe. Both the Vega Strike game engine and Vega Strike Universe game data set are in a playable state, but still under development. 

“Vega Strike allows players to explore a vastly dynamic universe where frontiers collide and you’re just a pilot trying to make ends meet. How? That’s your decision. Vega Strike is designed as a non-linear gaming experience, where you choose what action you want to take.

Vega Strike features a dynamic trading economy, allowing your character to operate as a merchant. Discover what trade routes bring in the most profit, what commodities make you the most money given your ship’s cargo space limitations, accept cargo missions and learn to avoid areas of danger (repairs eat into your profits!).

If you are tired of making money on milk runs, or want to try something different, then there are other paths to success. Vega Strike features a mission generator, providing multiple missions to the experienced (and not so experienced) pilots. Engage in bounty hunts, patrols, battles and escort missions. Feel like travelling? Explore the dynamic universe and see the farthest reaches of known space. Want a walk on the wild side? You could always turn pirate! Just be prepared for the consequences.” VS Wiki
