Daedalus Station Gets Major Facelift Update ID

The Maslas Brothers have kicked off their big 2018 push with a huge revamp to Daedalus Station, the home base of Wing Commander Flat Universe. There are some nice improvements to welcome in new players, plus a lot of back end rework to make future updates easier to make. Other subsections include an archive of the Destiny's Way magazine and a ship database that syncs with the actual stats of the fighters in the game. There's no need to wait for the next release - if you missed the multiplayer alpha last year, check it out now!
Let me get a more technical approach on our new website and do a little versus with the old one. There are some fundamental characteristics that our older web site was lacking:
  • a. New people should play Wing Commander! The old Daedalus was created by WC fans for fans. As a result most out-worlders who were visiting Daedalus didn't know what was this game all about. We attempted to keep a dual personality on this refit and keep both the old fans and the new-commers happy.
  • b. It is dynamic. Old Daedalus was taking much of our precious development time to update and maintain its assets and contents. This site is version controlled and its content can be updated easily.
  • c. It is responsive. As you may have already noticed we like our projects to work on several platforms. Based on that philosophy Flat Universe website should be able to look well on you mobiles and tablets too.
  • d. Daedalus talks with Flat Universe. The new flight deck collects information regarding the ships and their stats from the same database that the actual game does. That means that you pilots can have an almost realistic idea on how a ship will respond during a flight session.
Hope you like our additions. Catch up later,
the MaslasBros :)
