Well, one night I decided to try IC, and I am very impressed. For what is completed so far, you guys have done a great job. This is what I would fix though:
Remove the weird \"auto-cannon\" and replace it with the Spreadfire Cannon.
Add the Fusion Cannon (can probably just mod the BFG :P)
Reduce the damage that bumping into walls does to one's ship, or make it harder to do the same amount of damage.
Oh and change to third person upon death ^_^
P.S.: I was depressed because I thought there was no joystick support, but Grendel posted in the other thread that you can make it work (I think :P). ^_^
