The majority of the save games here have been submitted to the site. If you have a game you're particularly proud of (maybe you're excessively wealthy or have an Elite rating with the highest rank in both navies) that you want to share with the rest of the galaxy, then please send it in. Any other interesting saves, such as planetary anomalies and the like, are welcome too.
Save game conversions
There is no program to convert save games between Amiga, Atari and PC versions. Additionally, only the Amiga and Atari save games will work with OpenGL Frontier. I expect a program to convert save games for use with other versions would be a very welcome addition to the community.

|PC Frontier Saves|
This is David Braben's very own save game, set in late 1992. He is in the Sol system and has a very nice Cobra Mk. III.
Commander Figes is a Dangerous Lord and has a big Puma Clipper with all the crew and fully equipped. He is landed on Mars.
An interesting save game, courtesy of Alan Forster, which sees his ship landed on the gas giant Achenar 6! He is in the Thargoid ship however, but thanks go out to Alan for this save game.
John Holroyd supplied this save game where his ship is far out in the Laessur system which is around the 0,1022 region. It is an explored system with a government and John has parked up his very nice Asp.
A save game which finds an Imperial Courier in the Iohoio system (-1605,-1602). The commander profile is Lord and Competent.
This is a save game which finds Commander Jeroen landed in a nice black Eagle Mk. III at the Hoopertown starport on New World in Achenar. He is Competent and is a Viscount but watch out; his ship is missing something very important!

Commander Loopy (expert cheater in Frontier) is in the Sol system in a very large Tiger Trader.
The Okana game is a good all round one. The commander profile is Sir, Corporal and Competent he is landed on Topaz. His ship is a Panther Clipper.
This is another 'far out' save game. It is in the Pleione system (32,32).
This is my old save game, in an Asp Explorer, an Elite rating and Lord for the Imperials.
A save game from Frontier meister, David 'Wullbag' Corkish in which he has created the ultimate Imperial Courier! Give it a go.
Gordon Dyke's save game landed at London in a nice green Puma Clipper. He has lots of money, the year is 3203 and he has an Above Average combat rating.
Redwizard's save game is landed at Mars High, Sol, in a Panther Clipper and everything is included! All cargo items and lots of equipment in the ship. The combat rating is Dangerous and the commander is unaligned with any super power.
Lots of (30+) Imperial Couriers with 50 sheilds - can you take them all on, and survive, without running away?
A borg cube has entered the Sol system-- but this is a cube with a difference, it has a cloaking device. Press F9 to disguise the cube as a simple cargo canister.
A long range cruiser for those who like to buy everything a space station has to offer. It's so big however, that it's drawn badly on the status (F3) page.
It's sunrise on Merlin in the Ross 154 system. In one hour, the main star will be eclipsed behing the gas giant Aster. The purists will note that it doesn't get any darker when this happens.
A Lynx Bulk Carrier, similar to the LRC.
Lots of (30+) Military Vipers with 50 shields. Can you take them all on, and survive, without running away?
With some deft finger work, loading this commander, and pressing Escape (to pause the game) will result in two ships being merged together without actually colliding.
Steve Critchlow's personal hacked ship for exploring the frontiers of Frontier, without having to worry about how long it takes to get anywhere (Class 8 drives in a Kestrel), being killed (200 shields, hull repair), and enough fuel to last a long while (5000t), and $200,000,000 for good measure. Rating is Elite Prince.
The Thargoid Ship, aka the Mirage! This is the Starblade, as hacked by Steve Critchlow and equipped with everything from a fighter launch device to a Class 8 hyperdrive. The commander profile is Elite Prince.
The SS Gallileo is an Interplanetary Shuttle that has been "modified"-- very fast and holds lots of equipment.
The year is 3214, and Commander Davidson is at York City Starport in the Tau Ceti system. His ship is a very nice Cobra Mk. III.
A fully equipped Police Viper with plenty cargo space and an astounding jump range awaits you on Mars at the start of 3200. Ever wanted to pilot an official Police vessel? Now is your chance.
A save game thousands of sectors away from the core systems, in a pocket of civilisation with a few inhabited systems.
A Competent Squire on New America, in a mighty fine Imperial Courier.
Read the attached story for more information.
Far out in the Anandso system.

A spectacular mis-jump. From a mere 0.75LY away from Ross 154. Now it's about 48.000 AU away!
