Elaborate WCRPG Hits the Home Stretch

capi3101's Wing Commander RPG is nearly complete! According to the game's Grand Master Plan, only 1-2% of the total work remains to be done. However, as you can see from the project's massive table of contents, there is so much information involved that the remaining work could continue for a little while yet.


There's been quite a bit of work on non-canon vehicles and ships recently, and capi is taking submissions on what else might be worthwhile to include - think the RSI Constellation. The bulk of the remainining activity continues to revolve around the "Who's Who in the Wing Commander Universe section. About a hundred character profiles are in the queue.


Check out the project's thread at the CIC Forums for more information, or go straight to the project wiki. Aspiring modders, writers and other creative Wingnuts should also take note of how to run a successful fan project. capi started with a solid plan outline and has been devoted to regular updates for over a year. That's how you stay on track!

This last week saw continued work in Chapter 12.2. I'm thinking my pace is going to be twenty profiles a week; I've been trying to get back up to thirty but so far it hasn't happened. Either way I was still off pace this week owing to an all-day event on Thursday alongside with some crucial work being done in another project I'm working on.

A total of twelve profiles were completed this week, rounding out the P1 character set and beginning work with the End Run/Action Stations group. I did have some time to continue work on headers and I'm pleased to announce that I was able to get the entire character set from Prophecy completed. At this point I only have about two dozen headers left to finish up, though I did discover this week that I am going to have to compose a brand new header for Janet McCullogh's False Colors profile (her history on WCPedia ends after Action Stations).

New WC Album's Digital Tracks Behind Schedule, But About Half Done
2015-07-07 -- For those who may not have seen the update at Kickstarter a little while back, George Oldziey has provided another report on status of his orchestral Wing Commander album. We've heard from some fans who were under the impression that the project was finished when Mr. Oldziey released his collection of tracks at the end of last year, but work still continues.

Explore Gemini Through An Orion Pilot's Eyes
2015-07-06 -- Last month we noted how rare thorough video reviews are for Privateer, and then we stumbled across a massive playlist by Necroscope. He's covered the game in fifteen installments that range from about 30-60 minutes each. That's a lot of Gemini Sector action!

Exotic Kilrathi Heavy Fighter Gives Excalibur A Run For Its Money
2015-07-05 -- Klavs has made some great Excalibur wallpapers over the years, but it's always fun to see what other talented artists can do when they don't need to build all of the art assets from scratch and can instead just focus on setting up a scene. Chris Kroznuski made this wallpaper with a simple background, but it pairs the Excal with the terrifying Hhriss in a match-up I don't think we've ever seen before. Although it appears the Kilrathi heavy fighter has the upper hand, there are very few dogfights the Excalibur can't win.

Happy Fourth of July!
2015-07-04 -- 239 years ago, the 13 American colonies declared themselves a nation, independent of the British Empire. Many of our visitors and staff are out enjoying a weekend filled with family gatherings, barbecues, carnivals and fireworks. To our international visitors, have a great weekend wherever you are!

Sharp Kilrathi Pencil Drawing Surfaces
2015-07-03 -- A few years ago, we did a brief rundown of the wealth of Wing Commander inspired imagery that can be found on the DeviantArt website. AD's come across a new pencil sketch of a Kilrathi, created by AirenWoodmoon. Like most Kilrathi drawings on DeviantArt, this one seems to draw mainly from their Wing Commander 3 appearance.

Bearcat's Back Again For More Action
2015-07-02 -- It's a good week for Bearcats! ScoobyDoo has added to the fun with a new take on the cult classic postwar heavy fighter. The shape is solid, and it's covered in Scooby's trademark hull details.

Opposing Fleets Line Up With Top Warships
2015-07-01 -- Line art is a bit of a lost art these days, but Red has used the technique to put together two pairs of capships from the Wing Commander Movie for Wolf's Shipyard. The Confed fleet gets both a Bengal carrier and a Concordia supercruiser. The Kilrathi get a Sivar and Snakeir.

Classic WC MUSH Transitions To New Forums RPG
2015-06-30 -- Iceblade is in the process of kicking off a really cool new forums-based RPG. He's taken the setting and storyline from the old WC Gemini Sector MUSH and transitioned it to a message board style that's more forgiving on people's schedules. It'll continue to retain some of the combat action and other elements from a MUSH while being merged with a more traditional text role play.

Starship Tactics Checks In With Demo Video
2015-06-29 -- Arraen is back to share the first gameplay video of his Wing Commander strategy mod, Starship Tactics. The clip shows off some Dorkir convoy raiding by a Confed corvette. This is actually a major role that the Ventures would have played during the war, although we so rarely get to see them engage in activity like this in the series.

Fantastic Bearcat Model Available For Download
2015-06-28 -- Last year Klavs released a pair of large Terran and Kilrathi model archives that included over a gigabyte of ships. Multiple fan projects have taken advantage of his generosity and are sporting some pretty slick looking craft these days. But he's continued to make new fighters!
