Pioneer is a space adventure game set in the Milky Way galaxy at the turn of the 31st century. The game is open-ended, and you are free to explore the millions of starsystems in the game. You can land on planets, slingshot past gas giants, and burn yourself to a crisp flying between binary star systems. You can try you hand at piracy, make your fortune trading between systems, or do missions for the various factions fighting for power, freedom or self-determination.
Pioneer Alpha 22 features, fixes, code clean ups. Pioneer is a open source space adventure game in alpha development with a passing resemblance to Frontier Elite II. If you loved that old game, there is a good chance your gonna like this too!

This is a repeat of what I put on my blog.
Thought I would update this page since its been a while, with news of Pioneer's Alpha 22 release.
Here is a run down taken directly from the dev thread at Space Sim Central
for attaching .zip files to the data directory. Allows users to add mods
to the game by putting a single file in /mods (#1214)
Minor changes and tweaks
Script and model changes
As you can see, along with many code clean ups and other tweaks,
there is now a "mods" folder incorporated into the game, so if you fancy
adding missions, ships, whole systems or anything else you can dream
up, this is where it will go.There are also nightly builds available
which is were new features will be tried out first before the freeze for
the next Alpha build. Have a look at this thread on the SSC if you want
to try them out Spacesimcentral.com
Alpha 22 is available now from the usual download link here Pioneerspacesim.net
When I get the chance, I will update this with some screen shots as things have moved on graphically since the early builds.
Edit: I have also included some screen shots showing some P66 models. These models are not actually (at present) in the official Alpha releases, however there are links in some of the images to where you can get them. ;)
Have fun out there people!
