Many years ago I used to play a game called ‘Earth and Beyond’, it was created by Westwood studios and published by EA games. Sadly it got shut down, which was a great shame as the game was really ahead of its time. the basic fundamental gameplay of the game was rock solid and to be honest, a relaunch of the game with more modern MMO features could be hugely successful, but anyway, I digress!
Whilst going though my old computer archives I stumbled upon some models of the Terran Scout I made whilst I was working on the emulator for the game. I started thinking about how the emulator was coming along and pondered giving it a try, more so since I have become incredibly bored with Star Trek Online. That very same day I received an email from an old friend I used to play alongside in the game, I took it as fate and reinstalled the game and I have to say I was not disappointed!
The Emulator has come a long long way over the last few years and is currently in Stress Testing, it now has almost all the skills back in-game, as well as grouping, combat, mining, questing and even factions. The mob AI is still a bit primitive, but considering it has been built from the bottom up its pretty impressive. For obvious reasons the emulator can not charge money as this would cause legal issues, but donations to help with maintaining the server are appreciated.
I’d strongly suggest that anyone that played Earth and Beyond gives the emulator a try, even if you’ve never played Earth and beyond either, this is a good game to try out, just remember it is still in beta testing. You can find the main website at the following link:-
