    A Near Miss! (August 28, 2020)

    On that note, what is the canon armament for the frigate? Looking at the model, there are four mounts for laser turrets and two missile launchers? Any ideas what it was supposed to fire?

    Super Famicom Wc1 Giveaway!

    I am once again in the process of clearing out some of my things, and I have a copy Wing Commander for the Super Famicom in its original box from some time ago. I've never played it or really done more than marvel at the awesome box art and manual, but rather than try to sell it for a pittance...

    Hercules Ready For Some Heavy Lifting (August 24, 2017)

    Fantastic! I always actually really liked the design: it looks believable and utilitarian, and the various little details like retro-thruster ports and the offset cockpit make it unique-looking.

    LOAF you are the closest from what I know and posted first, send me a PM and I'll happily mail it out when I get the chance.

    WC Movie Press Pack

    I have a copy of the press pack folder for the Movie that I won from a CIC birthday contest years ago: it contains a tissue paper envelope with three sheets of production stills, the press booklet, and a Sims 2 Insider's Preview demo CD. If someone here would like to have it, I didn't want to...

    Wc3 In-Game Capship Armaments

    Apologies if this has been covered in the past, but I am looking for some information that I'd like to incorporate in my own project (I'll get to that in a future thread, though!). Specifically, I'm looking for the in-game armaments for the capital ships in Wc3: the old '/ships2' page and the...

    Nephilim Remodels

    Was I the only one who was disappointed when they realized the Nephilim ships have cockpit canopies? Playing Prophecy back in the day, I always imagined their ships as entire organisms, and the talking heads in the VDUs weren't really pilots, but more like the ship's sensory/communication organs...

    HCl's Online Ship Viewer (August 17, 2014)

    Just for my own curiosity, is there a way to implement something that would let you toggle between textures/polygons/wireframe? I don't know if I'm alone on this but I think that would be pretty neat.

    HCl's Online Ship Viewer (August 17, 2014)

    This is really awesome! Also cool to see all the interior hangar models, especially in the dreadnought and starbase from Wc3; I always liked to fly around inside them.

    And another year passes . . .

    I like big, majestic, sweeping shots of spaceships and I cannot lie... Seriously though, I've been hyping WoSN for a while now and it's shaping up really nicely!

    Wc3 VDU Ship Images

    I'm not sure if this is the right subforum for this, but I'm curious if anyone has ever been able to track down high-res versions of the VDU ship images from Wing Commander 3? I currently just have the thumbnail-sized versions used here on the CIC. I'm planning on using them for something I'll...

    16th Birthday Party Moves to a New Night! (July 17, 2014)

    I'm going to try and make it, I haven't been to one of these in years and it'll be nice to talk with everyone given how much craziness has happened in the last few years! I'd also be in for some Prophecy deathmatch.

    rank your fav wing commander games in order

    Yeah, the effect really just did not pan out. Every capital ship in Wc4 just looked like a block of oily, jagged scrap metal; the simpler textures in Wc3 where the ships were more smooth grey with more solid accent colors ended up looking much better. I really like having the cockpit there too...

    rank your fav wing commander games in order

    Of the games that I've actually played all the way through: 1. Wing Commander III (My favorite game of the series, I thought it got the most right out of all the games in terms of gameplay and aesthetics) 2. Prophecy 3. Wing Commander I 4. Privateer 5. Wing Commander IV (While it did a lot of...

    Mark Hamill on Star Wars (July 24, 2014)

    You joke, but this is probably actually true. The article says the beard is 'contractually obligated' so let's hope that Luke hasn't let himself go quite as much since Return of the Jedi. I'm cautiously optimistic about the new movie and it will be interesting to see how they utilize Mark...

    Mark Hamill is starting to look like Slavoj Žižek, wow.

    Complete WC GOG fixes and tweaks

    Silly me, I simply re-installed Wc3 (GOG apparently updated it) and it works swimmingly now. Thanks though!
