    As I remember from the original the cargo hold for the Orion can be increased from 50 to 75. I can't seem to do this with the remake with the stock Orion ship.

    I understand that the auto tracking allows the guns to hit targets with a direct target sighting but what does the tractor capability do? How is the tractor capability different from the a normal tractor beam?

    You can't buy shields for the demon?

    I can't seem to buy any shields for the demon. My inventory doesn't show my ship is equipped with shields, yet when I go and fly in space my hub shows I have shields. Are shields built into the demon?

    The point of having 5+ shields/reactors?

    What's the point of selling reactors and shields that are greater than 5? I have seen shield 4 level 8 and reactor level 8 on the market. The Orion is the only ship that can accept a level 5 and nothing higher.

    Harder to get better weapons/ships?

    I notice that mining stations, agricultural worlds and refineries only sell the merchant ships. I only found the Orion and Centurion on New Detriot. Is this done on purpose? I also can't find a station that sells the high grade weapons like the Tachyon and Plamsa gun and better radars...

    Enslave/Free Slaves, Hitchhikers

    I'm not clear on the concept of enslaving and freeing slaves. In the original game if you use your tracker beam to pull in a pilot, you can automatically sell the pilot as a slave at the market. So how does this work in the remake? If tracker beam a pilot into the ship what do you do...

    What was the first Wing Commander game you played? I remember the first Wing Command game I played was Wing Commander II on my 386 with just the PC speakers. Eventually I did get a 8 bit sound card later on and I was knocked off my feet when the character started to talk! The game was...

    Thoughts on the new nav map

    I have to comment on the new nav system. The symbols representing the planets and jump gates look very large and chucky---like playschool shapes. It was not a wise decision to use white texts on light grey buttons because it makes it impossible to read. I have to admit the original nav...

    Difference between the armor and hull?

    For the ship there are two features that can be improved: the armor and the hull. What is the difference between the armor and hull? In the original game you could just purchase armor for the ship and that was it.

    Where's the PDA?

    In the original privateer there's a PDA where you can access it on the stations. At the start you could create yourself a callsign. In the game you could view your cargo, credits and save/load game. What happen to this in this remake?

    High Res = Small Screen

    When I set to a high resolution 1024x768 I get a small screen size when I'm inside a space station, or world. The colour is set at 32bit full screen. The screen is normal size when I'm in space. How can I make the screen larger at a high resolution?
