This is a shameless copy and paste from Gamedev!
I did edit several things though.
Team name: Outerspacecrew
Project name: Outerspace
Outerspace is a open-ended space exploration RPG with hundreds of fractal planets, several races and an epic plot. The
game is designed after the PC classic Starflight. Currently, the engine is about 50-60% done and in a usable state.
You'll be able to create a crew, build a ship, and explore the Universe however you wish, landing on planets, harvesting minerals and life forms
and encountering friendly and hostile races while the plot unfolds.
The game will be closed source freeware. It's target audience is: Fans of similar games, Starflight, StarControl etc.
Anyone that likes a Sci-Fi RPG.
The game is freeware so there is no monetary compensation planned. We all work pretty hard and don't get paid.
The engine is written in .NET and DirectX 9.0. We currently use Milkshape to make meshes. Any 3d modeler is acceptable, as
long as the final product is a compatible DirectX 9.0 mesh.
Primarily an artist. The art we need is mostly simple 3d meshes (planetside life, plants, animals) a few bigger nicer 3d meshes (ships, starbases),
some texture maps for the planet terrain and perhaps a few larger static scenes. That's about it. I'm comfortable with the size of our team currently.
Currently, we have 2 contributing programmers, an experienced composer, and are receiving various minor contributions from
brzozowskig (AT) adelphia (DOT) net
Also, feel free to inquire on the discussion boards.
This is a fun project. No need to be stressed out working on it. We are plodding along. Art would bring a lot
of things to life I feel. Contributions of 10-20 hours a week are perfect.

Here are some lifeform concept drawings:
(Warning, very large scans)
What we need most are life form meshes, here is the link to the life form requirements document. See "Animal Descriptions"
Here are some screenshots from a build a few weeks old:
Any feedbackup you are willing to post!
