Wing Commander Saga: A Wing Commander Freespace 2 Total Conversion Fan Project.
Wing Commander Saga "The Darkest Dawn" begins right before Wing Commander 3 and concludes with the ending of the Terran-Kilrathi War (whether or not the Terrans win depends on you). The mod seeks to recreate the Wing Commander experience of the WC3 with an epic Storyline that complements the events portrayed by the Wing Commander 3 game and novel. The presence of other carrier battle groups and capship squadrons gives a large-scale teamwork environment. The achievements from the first Wing Commander return to provide reward for mission performance.
Standoff is an add-on for Secret Ops, replacing basically all the original content: missions, graphics, sound effects, music, etc. The branching storyline will be based on events from the novel Fleet Action, and the graphics, audio, and gameplay recreate a WC2-like setting.
