Did You Know?
BC3000 was created by Derek Smart, who loudly defends ANY criticism of his product in the newsgroups, and threads regarding BC3000 is a frequently source of flamewars.
BC3000 was originally published in 1996 by Take Two and GameTek, and the advertisements featured a scantily dressed model (which makes no sense at all as it's unrelated).
The 1996 release was rushed out the door to meet the Christmas release deadline, apparently withOUT the approval of the developer (i.e. Mr. Smart). The result is a game so buggy it's completely unplayable upon install. It took Derek Smart/3000AD a full year's legal battle to get the title back under their own control, all the time issuing new patches to complete the product. Derek Smart made the V1.01 (the DOS-only version) free download to thank the gamers for their support.
A brand new version, Battlecruiser Millenium, is currently in beta testing, and should be released in first quarter of 2001. Add
