Lt.Overload has released the second mission in his mini campaign. The adventure puts you in the cockpit of an Excalibur during a strike to finish off the Kraken from the last mission. Unzip the mission pack into your Secret Ops directory after installing SO Sim, and have fun! More detailed instructions are included in the zip.
Okay guys, here it is, the final mission in this little campaign, "Blasting the Cap Blaster!" Included in the .zip is the mission, the new flyable ship, the new music, mission info, the sector (just in case), and a LOAD of screenshots (which hint at the ship you fly ;) )! As before, everything was made with MISB and MED. Instructions on what files do what and where to place them are in the zip!

Although we cannot gain assistence from the Kilrathi clan in the system near us, a nearby Comm Relay Station has sent forces to our position. Take the wings to the Kraken's location and finish this threat once and for all. Due to our low resources at the moment, your wing will be flying Excaliburs. By the time this breifing is over the loadouts for the Excaliburs should be complete. The fate of this system is in your hands now, send them all to hell.
Both of Lt.Overload's missions have also been grouped into a special double pack. His first sortie has been upgraded with new music. The update also includes a tweak to the simulator to make two flavors of the Thunderbolt flyable. This is the complete package with everything!

Also, I made a complete zip called the "Kraken Campaign Mission Pack", it includes all missions, text, sectors, screenshots, and new ships that replace the Tigershark and Wasp in the simulator! It also includes a new .mgi I made myself for the first mission! It's a must-have if you didn't get the first zip!

Kilrathi Fleet Gets Large Scale LLOD Upgrades
A couple of monster models have made their way into the Last Line of Defense project. Using some newly discovered information, Deathsnake has scaled up his fearsome Rigakh cruiser. Fairly credible stats imply it's even larger than the Confederation class dreadnought! (2018-03-19)
Black Lance Transport Certified For Covert Cargo
After leading the charge with a pair of exotic Black Lance designs earlier this year, DefianceIndustries has circled back around and completed the Evansville class transport that we see in Wing Commander 4. It has a fairly sleek profile for a transport as well as oversized engines, which form a pretty effective combo. There's no better way to sneak clandestine cargo to out-of-the-way places!

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)
