I'm not sure exactly what requirements you are looking for, but I know of two fan made games in the star control universe (that have melee obviously) called Aftermath Wars and The Ur-Quan ReMasters, and then there are a bunch of TW offshoots:

If you feel this is important, perhaps you should create and sticky a thread with the links to all of the Star Control projects out there, on this forum. Or maybe add the links to the 'links' section of your site (which currently just has timewarp listed.) That way these questions do not need to be answered with the same answers every couple of weeks or so. Wink Smiley

The topic was simply "help help help". That was just too confusing.

I can remember a space battle game called.. hmm.. Fight 2. It has some ships and a planet in the midle +4 players. All ships in it cost money and when you run out of money you lose.
1 Of the ships is named Druuge  Smiley

There are so many top-down, rotating, space shooters, it's unbelieveable. Try doing a search perhaps?

Here's one on MSN search.

This must be a popular genre, but IMO, it's been done to death. I want to see a mortal kombat style fighting game between two space ships. Has this ever been done before? Hell the ships could even have fatality moves!

If it has to have gravity and inertia, I think the list will be considerably shorter.

There's a newer one, hadn't seen it in this or other threads: Armada Online
Notes:
* MMO, Space-y
* Standard issue levelling up, items to collect, skills to upgrade, etc
* Currently in Alpha, so not all features are in yet.
* Currently free
* There's a similar control mechanism as in Space Rangers 2, in the sense that you click where you want to go with the mouse, and your ship turns and thrusts towards your point.  Targeting is always auto target.  Skills are controlled via standard MMO numbered buttons at the bottom of the screen. 
* Currently no plot, alien dialogs etc are featured, and from what their webpage / forums seem to say (from the 90 seconds I read them) there's no such plans. 
* There's a team combat game mode that would be very cool if they fleshed it out more.  What's strange is that the XP, money and items you gain in this mode do not stay in the rest of the game; they are immediately removed at the end of battle, and you get 2000 or 1000 XP for your "real" character (depending if you win).  This is a little strange at first, but it does make sense: you upgrade fairly quickly and get very powerful, and you kept such upgrades the rest of the game would get too easy.  So it's a combination of action multiplayer with some upgrade options, with an MMO tacked on. 

Mohammed: any other details about getting Timewarp to work?  Which OS are you using, which version did you try?  The latest release had some major issues with some of the game types not working, but the game should at least install.  Try TW-Light instead, it's pretty reliable.

Just out of curiosity, is that your actual name? And if not, what made you choose it as a nick?
