SotS 2 has not yet been announced. If you were talking about FZ; Mecron said it is a fun off-shot from NS and that it is a much smaller project, so it will come out first.

While not officialy announced, I do believe SotS2 was planned for and talked about on the forums looong before any North Star clues were dropped.
At least I think so. Its been awhile. :lol: lol

SotS 2 has been floating around since pre-BoB if I recal correctly.

You're absolutely right. I remember talk about SotS2 not long after I joined the forums in '07. I don't recall NorthStar being mentioned until quite some time after that.

N* will definately be out before SoTS2. We've seen the progress they're making on northstar. all we have on sots 2 are questions that affect the very earliest preliminary planning stages of SoTS2.

I personally only questioned whether FZ or N* would come out first. the main project, or the offshoot. do you focus on your big time game, or the fun little side project using part of the big game's engine.

And Mecron said FZ is coming...

That is not directly linked to NS but NS was definitely not slated that early. SotS success made some (nice) mess of things though and FZ is not out yet.

Well it would make sense if FZ is made using one aspect of the NS engine to finish that and learn from that to assist NS development.

Presumably FZ has fewer additional interfaces to deal with so sorting it out will be simpler than jumping in with NS.

I read that FZ interview and was curious, is the same(not completely obviously) tiling bit going to be used for the way terrain is generated when you land?

I guess we dropped the ball on this one eh? First it was Sots N* FZ Sots2, then Sots FZ N* Sots 2 now looks like Sots FZ Sots2 N*. maybe we should stop guessing the order of games, I think we're jinxing it. Unless..... this is all part of one of Mec's zuulish mind games, and N* actually is coming out real soon, and the sots 2 release is more of a diversion....nah.

If my memory doesn't play tricks on me, that's not absolutely true. I (think to) remember a mysterious NorthStar project (without any further information) hanging around on Kerberos product webpage even before SOTS1 came out. But then again, maybe my memory IS playing tricks :)
