XPilot is a networked multi-player space battle
game for the X Windowing System. The game is quite addictive,
and has consumed hours upon hours of my free time ;) (what little
free time I have). The game consists of a client run on the player's
machine, and a server run on a host machine, to which the players connect.
The playing field is a map that can be customized, in fact there are tools
for creating maps from scratch.
It can be mastered in about a year of leisurely
play. For more information, check out the official
and I have developed two insanely large
XPilot maps that are usually running on at least one of our
SGIs. Lair of Chaos I and II are each 300x300, full of complex passageways
and creative traps, and contain large dogfighting areas. Click
to check on the status of the server at chaos.res.cmu.edu.
Also, be sure to check out
Sean's XPilot page for more info.
I can be found flying a Millenium Falcon under the name of Han Solo
whenever I'm playing...
