THP Expands Workspace & Releases WC4 Video Update ID

originalTHP has been an active Wing Commander fan recently and now has a dedicated working area for his Wing Commander projects. His latest is a full divx 5 encoding of an older German Making of Wing Command 4 video that's often been hard to find. Though the documentary is in German, it's still a fun watch even if you don't speak the language. Video taken from the set is in its original English and there are some very cool looks at the prop design and backgrounds. THP has also written transcript of the video that can be translated to help you through. You can download the full 45 meg video here (you might have to wait a few seconds for it to connect). Head on over the originalTHP's new Solsector home here for full information on the video, extra photos, the transcript and more! His original Privateer 2 DOS to Windows upgrade patch is also available.

Stay tuned to his new Solsector home for more developments in the near future!

Happy St. Patrick's Day From The Green Salthi

Confederation hull plating is well known for its green texture, and terran soldiers even occasionally sport a green tinted outfit, but it's a far less common color on the Kilrathi (aside from the kats that actually have green skin). We know the common brown color of Kilrathi ships comes from the hue of their local durasteel, but there's one major exception to this: the green Salthi - or Jalthi, rather. The Secret Missions for the Super Nintendo had to squeeze to fit everything on the cartridge, and one noteworthy cut was the elimination of the six-shooter Jalthi model. (2018-03-17)

Explore Wing Commander History as Prelude to Star Citizen

Magnets & Miracles Gaming has put together a historical overview video series going through some of Chris Roberts' older games and how they formed the genesis of what we see being planned for Star Citizen. It's similar to what the Cloud Imperium crew put together in their series of RSI Museum videos. Part 1 focuses on basic back story, Wing Commander and Wing Commander II. (2018-03-16)

Un Juego de Chris Roberts

Christian Klein, the Pixel Engineer, has dug up another awesome European localization. It's a second Spanish DROsoft box that includes a combination of both Secret Missions in the same package! The reverse side of each has been translated and combined into one, but the included paper inserts appear to still be in English. (2018-03-15)

Goodbye, Stephen Hawking

The extraordinary theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has passed away and tributes are pouring in from across the internet. As a genius thinker and pioneer in space, he made his mark on the whole genre of science-fiction, including Wing Commander. On the universe map, star systems are often named after developers, authors and even fans. (2018-03-14)

Homeworld Players Prepare For Convoy Defense

The Homeworld Remastered Mod will soon be getting a new pirate element to counter the game's supply convoys. This means that players will now need to defend their inbound transports to keep marauders at bay. There are also some potentially sneaky tactics that the Black Lance faction will be able to employ, since they can create pirate units that may be able to blend in with run-of-the-mill pirates and privateers.
