Almost As Cramped As A Tarsus Update ID

Following on from the success of Capship Wednesday, we've decided to have another theme day.. Cockpit Thursday! First up is from Standoff as they have released screenshots of their rendition of the Raptor's cockpit. It's a pretty good likeness too as you can see below. The first screenshot is the WC1 version including the top part which is only seen when ejecting, the other two are from Standoff. Seven years on, the Prophecy engine still looks great. You can comment on the new screenshots in this thread.

Sabre Cockpit Gets Remodelled Update ID

Cyberion has sent along his latest 3D model, but this time it isn't a ship - it's a cockpit. As you can see below, it stays very close to the Sabre's original design and it's available for your use. The left screenshot is the original and the right one is Cyberion's design. You can also download Cyberion's model which is in Lightwave format here.

Nexus Launches In Europe Update ID

A couple of weeks ago we took a first look at a neat looking Homeworld style real-time strategy game, Nexus: The Jupiter Incident. The game is now out, and will be available in stores across Europe tomorrow. Sadly it looks like North America may have to wait a further few months before getting hold of the game, though there is now a multiplayer demo available for download from the game's website.

RPS Highlights Origin Fandom

Rock Paper Shotgun has run a neat article on longtime Origin collector Joe Garrity. There's a really interesting Q&A that delves into how Joe got started many years ago buying up spare copies of Ultima games and meeting with their creators. It also highlights some of the good work that fans have done to preserve historic material, such as our 2008 trip to archive Origin source documents at Mythic or the assistance Wingnuts gave Raylight to develop Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance.
