Pioneer (video game)
|Genre(s)||Space trading and combat simulator|
Pioneer is a free and open source space trading and combat simulator video game inspired by the commercial proprietary Frontier: Elite 2. It is available for most desktop computer operating systems.
Pioneer is set at the start of the 31st century. The player may choose from one of three starting locations: Earth, New Hope or a space station around Barnard's Star.
The game has no set objective, and the player is free to explore the galaxy and accrue money by performing tasks like trading, piracy or combat missions, allowing them to achieve a higher rank, buy better ships and equipment and hire more crew.
It has a realistic flight and orbital model based on Newtonian physics and a rudimentary atmospheric model with drag and heat build-up.
