This is something new (for me anyway): Orbiter-inspired fiction! Fired up by the amazing new Firefly "Jumbo" add-on about which I posted just the other day, "Staiduk" has written part one of an action-packed SF adventure story called In Darkness, the Rose - in the Simviation forum! It is heavily illustrated with cool screen shots of the Firefly in action in Orbiter (the one above is mine). Although it uses the Firefly freighter and its rather exaggerated performance to good effect, the story isn't really based on the Firefly TV series or the Serenity movie or their characters (maybe it's based in the same time frame and universe, I'm not really sure).
It's an action-story, and although the characters and dialog are just a bit over the top, it's a pretty entertaining start. Today's entry ends with "to be continued" and Staiduk says he's writing more tonight. Check it out.
