    I'm looking for Mac-friendly (and Linux-friendly, optionally) space sim games, the kind where it's open-ended, and you can upgrade your ship, mine from planets, engage in dogfights. Doesn't necessarily need to be an online game, vs. AI is fine. Any suggestions?

    Escape Velocity: Nova is a pretty good game with quite a few nice mods available. vs AI.

    Cool! Not free though. But I'll check it out.

    PS, actually I was looking for something more like Privateer, FreeSpace, that sort of thing. But open-ended.

    BTW, can you confirm that it runs smoothly on Mac? I've got a Mac Pro octo-core (2.66GHz), 16GB RAM, NVidia GeForce GT120.
