    New take on Hellcat V

    Happy to hear that it's just a case of the Mod being on pause. I was just thinking about it the other day while I was playing the Homeworld 2 campaign.

    Inventory: Wing Commander Academy Co-Belligerents (October 5, 2022)

    I don't see why it wouldn't all you would need to do is tweak the target code and you could probably do that with a sample of the target groups DNA. Once you have the parameters set it would probably just be a case of pushing the target specifications to the Nanites in the canisters. If I...

    Inventory: Wing Commander Academy Co-Belligerents (October 5, 2022)

    Pre being caught Tolwyn Mindset: I see two possibilities... One he uses the Gen Select Bio weapon on their colony worlds and those that meet the requirements would fall into the strong category. Two he encourages their colony worlds to rebel via the random acts of piracy and terrorism so that...

    Artemis 1

    Artemis is the Greek Goddess of the Hunt... Like any great hunter She knows to wait for a clean shot. To quote the First Codex: "Vigilance is the Warrior's salvation; inattention the Warrior's greatest foe."

    Questions from End Run

    Naval Tradition is that the Officer in command of the ship is referred to as Captain, regardless if they hold the rank of Captain or not... Ramona is in charge of the mission once they reach the mission's Area of Operation. Harcourt still has command of the ship, and the final word onboard his...

    After Action Report Caliban II

    Recently I've been doing a replay of Wing Commander IIIl, and made it to Caliban Missions. The following is my After action report. This mission was completed using Ace Difficulty with no cheats. For Caliban Mission II, I took the Longbow out for this due to the large number of Cap ships at the...

    Lego Scimitar Ready To Slog Through Vega Sector (April 11, 2022)

    That is very well done. Now if we can just get build instructions... Not all of us are Master Builders after all.

    Anyone try following the novels when playing?

    I believe the issue in game was that if you choose to go after Hobbes, It would cause The Victory to have to delay the attack on the Alcor 5 prison, and opens them up to a Kilrathi counter strike. If I were to theorize... The Victory certainly took some losses during the events in Loki . On top...

    Anyone try following the novels when playing?

    Blair does chase Hobbes in the Novel, as does Vaquero. Vaquero gets shot down by Hobbes and Blair shoots down Hobbes.

    Hawk in WCP

    If I recall correctly Maniac mentions something about him in the Novelization of Wing Commander IV. Something along the lines of he had been an instructor at the academy at one point and that he had win at all costs mentality which led to a cadet getting killed during an exercise.

    Intrepid's role at the end of WC4

    I am in the process building a new Forum. It's been slow going though as a good piece of the data that I had stored was lost when a Hard Drive failed. But I will certainly keep you in the loop. That's not a bad looking design for an early render. I wouldn't mind building it in Space Engineers...

    Intrepid's role at the end of WC4

    No worries, we all have our own head cannon which can be useful to fill in the blanks on certain items that haven't been given detail in the franchise. Those notes that you posted in combination with Capi's RPG Sourcebook proved useful a few years back when I was briefly toying with bringing...

    Intrepid's role at the end of WC4

    That would explain Maverick being familiar with the layout having served on Concordia. The Armada version of the "Lexington Class" only had a length of 725 meters a mass of 4 Octomills or 3.25 Million KG in Terran which converts to around 3250 Metric tons according Googles conversion...

    What became of Gwen "Archer" Bowman?

    I could defiantly see that happening Loaf, Archer did seem to be one of Maniac's closest friends on The Claw. My money would personally be on the longer term marriage vs the short one. As far as what else happened I think it depends on if she was able to recover completely from her hesitation...

    Rachel's Rank

    In regards to the relationship with Angel... In the beginning of that relationship Blair is still technically part of the In System Security Service. He may have been on the Concordia and getting his orders from Angel but he was still part of a separate branch, and Tolwyn had the final say on if...

    Reconciling Fighter and Capital ship stats across the WC games

    Best way I found to use the Longbow in WC3 was to load up all my missile hardpoints with Pilum FFs. When I'd encounter Hostile Fighters I'd start firing Pilums at them in 2-3 second intervals. This wouldn't always kill them but it would buy me enough time to maneuver into position for a Gun...

    Service entry dates for Confed fighters

    Simple, being able to pick your ship is privilege of rank. Same as being able to pick who you fly with. Until we get to Wing Commander III we're not the top of the chain of command in the Fighter Wing on the Carrier.

    Service entry dates for Confed fighters

    Halcyon was the Wing Commander so what he said was the order of things. The Highest Rank that could be achieved in WC1 was Major. Once we play the Secret Mission addons the highest rank that is obtainable is Lt Colonel (Silver Oak Leafs). Halcyon at the end of Operation Crusade on the winning...
