New Prophecy, Secret Ops Update Adds Ships & More! Update ID

The newest version of the Prophecy and Secret Ops Model Upgrade Pack has been released! It includes a whole pile of exciting ships that have been gracing the news over the last few months. There are additional bug fixes as well as some new features to smooth in-game graphical loading. And if you dare, there's a tantalizing new option called 'ultraNightmare'... Grab the new update here! (75 meg exe)
It's MUP Release day! Version .32a is packaged and ready for you to try! Changes in .32a:

New Models:

  • Barracuda Corvette
  • Orca Destroyer
  • Plunkett Artillery Cruiser
  • Squid Interceptor
  • Stingray & Stingray Cluster
  • Vaktoth Heavy Fighter
  • Howard Day's TB-81 Shrike
  • Excalibur 2.0
Other Enhancements:

WCP Unlimited now includes new features for pre-loading materials and bitmaps. The intent is to correct the "pause" that occurs in-game when ships are dynamically generated (ie. second waves, ships that jump in, etc.) This will minimally increase load times at the start of missions, but will provide a smoother and more stable in-game experience. If this causes instability you may disable pre-caching by adding the following lines to your WCPUNL.cfg file:

preloadMaterials=0
preloadBitmaps=0

For those pilots who think they have the sand for it, try adding the following setting:

ultraNightmare = 1

Bug Fixes:

  • Corrected reported issue with Tigershark rocket pods
  • Corrected Tigershark mesh - added fuselage mounted mass-drivers
  • recolored WCP tigershark texture to make it more like FMV model
What are you waiting for cadet?

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.
