Frontier First Encounters D3D FFE D3D is an adaptation of the original FFE game. FFE (also known as Elite 3) sports new ships, items, missions, and a host of new features. Two builds are currently available, by Ittiz and AndyJ. 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. Description of Frontier: First Encounters Despite being recalled from the shelves due to numerous bugs, this last incarnation of Elite still got a large following of very dedicated followers.
