Frontier First Encounters D3D

FFE D3D is an adaptation of the original FFE game. As the screenshots below show, the FFE engine has been completely overhauled and produces much-improved graphics; the planets and sky/space are more detailed and most of the ships and buildings have been updated.
Two new builds are currently available, by Ittiz and AndyJ



This is a short video of Frontier First Encounters D3D. It shows an Imperial Trader launching from Nakasone in the Edphize system and docking at an orbital city in the same system.

This video shows the FFE intro movie as displayed in the D3D version of the game
