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.
This video shows the FFE intro movie as displayed in the FFED3D-AJ version of the game (2018)
