Kilrathi R&D Kicks Into High Gear in Homeworld Mod
2015-05-28 -- Several new updates have continued to round out and enhance the new Kilrathi faction in the Homeworld Remastered mod. The tech tree has been significantly refined so that a proper upgrade path is now available. Background spacescapes and menus look better in the latest release, and there have also been graphical fixes incorporated for torpedo detonation and texture reflection/glow.

A Piece Of Cutaway Poster History For Sale
2015-05-27 -- The Wing Commander SciPubTech poster is a great success story for Wing Commander fans. SPT was responsible for some incredible Star Trek cutaway posters that hit it big in the '90s. A TCS Tiger's Claw representation was first announced in 1999 and teased in a tiny postage stamp thumbnail.

Two Milestones Are Better Than One!
2015-05-27 -- First off, happy birthday to Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts! He turns 47 today, which means he was knee-deep in the very first WC game at the tender age of 22. Incredible!

Mark Hamill and Chris Roberts Together Again?
2015-05-26 -- A recent twitter post has the Star Citizen rumor mill all abuzz (and no, we don't mean the asset leak stuff everyone is talking about). Mark Hamill recently posted a message stating he had returned to England for a tantalizing non-Star-Wars project.Mark Hamill engaging in a secret project on its own isn't necessarily huge news.

Nimble KF-227 Harasses Vega Supply Lines
2015-05-25 -- WC Vega's newest fighter is the swift Salthi light fighter. They've been added to Mike Peters' film project as quick little escorts to assist the larger Dralthi raiders. One of the sequences mocked up below shows off how they might work in tandem to take down a Drayman - before a pair of Scimitars come to the rescue!

TCS Phoenix Still Holding the Line in Gemini
2015-05-24 -- The crew of the TCS Phoenix is still cruising the star systems of Gemini Sector rooting out pirates and fending off the Kilrathi. For fans itching for old school '90s style forums-based role playing, Wing Commander From the Ashes is their best bet. The adventures follow the crew of a Confed ship assigned to the Potter and Humboldt Quadrants in many of the systems we became familiar with as privateers.

Ultima Art Project Moves Forward, But WC Element Still Possible
2015-05-23 -- If you're not a Patreon follower of Denis Loubet, you may have missed the results from the recent vote for his next Origin-themed artwork. Unfortunately, Ultima fans won with a request for a new cover of Ultima VII. This is actually a very cool subject for Origin fans though as "The Black Gate" originally had just a stark black box!

Elite Dangerous Available For Mac
2015-05-22 -- Elite Dangerous, that other major crowdfunded space sim, is now available for Mac. David Braben's adventure/trading game was released for PC late last year, with Mac and Xbox One versions still in the pipeline. Mac users can now get the game directly from Frontier Developments or through Steam, and players are able to fly alongside PC users.

LOAF Talks WC3 For A Good Cause
2015-05-21 -- Cloud Imperium Games community team members James Pugh and Disco Lando recently conducted a 24-hour video gaming livestream for charity. There's a wide variety of games on deck, including Wing Commander 3. LOAF even starred on the stream for a bit and provided a running commentary before taking the controls.

"Let's just say she could hypothetically cruise at a cool 500 kilometers per second..."
2015-05-20 -- While cleaning his hard drive, Lc4Hunter stumbled upon old Excalibur model he'd created long ago. It brought back so many fond memories that he just had to take a stab at recreating it with all of the skills he's learned over the years! The result is a high quality update of one of the most beloved fighters in the series.
