Privateer 2 Concept Art Update ID

It's not very often that we hear from people who worked on Privateer 2 (at least people credited for it), but Jan Brockmann sent us this note:

I found something that be may be of interest for you. While working for EA Germany (from 1995-2001), I've spend nearly 3 month (in late '96) in Manchester working on the German localization of Privateer 2 - The Darkening. On my very last day in the office I was able to get my hands on a large page containing 4 pieces of conceptional artwork and every team member signed it for me. I thought I lost this page years ago, but I was wrong. I scanned it yesterday and compiled it in pdf format.

It weights 17 megs, is in full color and has a resolution of 450 dpi.

I wish I could put up a thumbnail but Acrobat Reader has some kind of screenshot protection thing. If I figure out a way around it, I'll put one up later. But for now you can grab the PDF here. You need Acrobat Reader 5 to view the file. It's quite a bulky file, so we'll see if we can shrink it down soon.

Kilrathi Fleet Gets Large Scale LLOD Upgrades

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)
