Escape Velocity Nova is
latest release. It’s the third in a series of games that puts players in space as captains of their own ships traveling from system to system. Part action game and part adventure game, your actions set off series of events that help to shape what happens in the universe around you.
One of the many neat aspects of Escape Velocity’s architecture is that it supports plug-ins, which enables enterprising developers to create everything from mild modifications to the game to complete conversions. Ingmar Wenz recently dropped MacCentral a line to let us know that he’s collaborating with some other folks to create a Star Trek-themed plug in for EV Nova. However, the team needs some help.
“While we have filled almost all positions, the thing we would seriously need would be a Unix/Sendmail expert,” said Wenz. “We have a Server using Mac OS X 10.1.4 and if somebody with very good knowledge of Unix and/or sendmail, it would be great if you dropped us an email.”
