Model Upgrade Pack Update Adding Nephilim, Bases & More Soon Update ID Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

The Prophecy & Secret Ops Model Upgrade Pack team posted a status update on the project's next release. December's upgrade included flashy new graphics effects and new capship/superbase/fighter models. The next iteration will feature even more beautiful updates plus programming enhancements. An exact timeframe is still soft, but if you were close to doing a fresh playthrough, it might be worth holding off just a little bit longer!
Hi all - we are working on the next MUP release: right now it will include the Hydra, Kraken, an updated Dula 7, the SO cruise liner and associated hulk, as well as the rest of the WCP starbases (Callisto, Confed Starbase, etc.). It will also incorporate the latest WCP Unlimited enhancements. No ETA yet but I'm going to see if we can get it out before the end of May. Watch this space.

Bearcat Fighter Ready to Strike Update ID Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

DefianceIndustries has debuted his Bearcat, and it's a beauty! Wingnuts overall have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the heavy fighter, but I've always been a fan. I love the aggressive stance from the head on perspective as well as the substantial engine cluster. It's hard to have a conversation about the ship without dragging in discussion about its wide-spaced guns, but they sure look cool. We really don't get to play with the ships nearly enough, and if we ever got a game where the Bearcat got more play time, it'd probably have a different gun loadout with better beam convergence anyhow.
Oh speaking of Bearcats...

This is oddly one of my favorite Confed designs, it's clearly an evolution of the Hellcat but there's some definite Excalibur influence as well. Also on paper, it's actually quite a nice fighter; she's fast, nimble, and has better shields and armor than her big sister. About the only gripe are the lackluster guns. While working on this one I thought: "With the Excalibur they built a sword, with the Bearcat, they made a scalpel." Not sure why but that sums the F-104 up nicely in my mind.

And a fun little fiction sales brochure cover because... why not?

Happy CIC Easter! Update ID Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

Soo... either the grocery store changed up the preservative on the shells or the dye crayons got cheap this year, so you can't really make out our Wing Commander themed easter eggs. At least these eggs don't shoot Steltek guns at you!

Matthew Lillard vs Instagram Update ID Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

The Maniac has become the poster child for social media support hell this month as he found himself locked out of his Instagram account. The saga began on or about April 1 when he got a new phone and was unable to log in. His password resets didn't work and he encountered some baffling "user not found" errors. And despite being an IG-verified celebrity with more than 150,000 followers, he couldn't reach a live support human to get him sorted out. So, he resorted to Twitter and various news outlets to get the word out. Apparently it worked, and as of last night, his account was reset so he could begin posting again.

Matthew Lillard is currently starring in NBC's Good Girls, so he's got plenty of promotion to catch up on! Social media platforms have long since moved beyond being frivolous sharing outlets and are a bonafide component of any professional marketing strategy, so something like this could be serious business. We're happy to see he's back up and running now!
