    Sol Has Been Lost

    Thanks for the replies! Disclaimer: The preceding story is not meant to connect with HTL. Any similarity is unintentional. Basically, it's just a simple little piece playing with an idea. An experiment in short fiction, if you will. Who knows - maybe a follow-up will come out of it. As...

    Sol Has Been Lost

    “Ladies and gentlemen, Sol has been lost.” That could be the whole speech. “A Nephilim fleet breached Jupiter HQ defenses approximately twenty hours ago. Though Confed leadership evacuated to this facility well prior, this defeat marks a devastating loss for the Confederation.” “Lost in...

    The WC interactive Flash navigation map

    Very cool! The killer app for this would be if you could type in 2 systems and it shows you the shortest route between them, but that would be challenging. Maybe you could select a system, and then show all the systems that can be reached in 2 jumps, then 3, then 4...

    Atmospheric Flight in WCSO?

    What if you made each image half sky and half ground? It'd be sideways, but that would create two different halves. I think's it's worth a try if just to see how much distortion there is - maybe with a black-and-white test image? Anyway, I didn't know about the background. It's really...

    Atmospheric Flight in WCSO?

    I don't know much about WC editing, but I remember that UE had a simulator mission where you flew in a nebula. I wonder, is it possible to create an atmospheric-looking background like that nebula background, with a lens-flared sun and a horizon in the distance that could simulate...

    PiArmada .05RC now available for download

    Love the new graphics! - The Kilrathi need their own carrier and fighter map icons, and the Kat carrier screen with a Raptor on it doesn't quite fit... - Could Confed systems be blue and Kilrathi systems be red? maybe that's a good option to implement, letting the user pick their color - A...

    PiArmada .05RC now available for download

    Sounds interesting. I'd like to help if I could - I actually worked on my own game of this kind for a while (in Java). Some suggestions to begin with: - Testing would be much easier if you made a one-player only option - maybe by modifying the next turn function - Is there any way to...

    Wing Commander - CAG

    Some quick comments: - AI launches decoys instantly & repeatedly - since most missiles have spoofs like 35% or 50%, decoys are extremely effective - Toggle "showRadarCircles" in the View->Modify Detail Map box to show radar ranges in Detail View - One mission limit per program instance for...

    WC wargame idea

    the modes are good ideas, but I think having units operate too independently is a bad idea - also, because those are much higher levels of abstraction code-wise, they'll be tough to code (right now) - I still need to do ship launching and recovery, so carriers are in progress right now -...

    WC wargame idea

    Just zip and email all the files to casper@solsector.net if you can - they shouldn't be very large. Now for the questions: 1) zooming works, but only smoothly after you pause - basically you type in any zoom factor you'd like, and the detail map will scale to that number - the overall map...

    Aerodynamic sleekness

    (insert foot in mouth) Sorry, I was only thinking of the Hellcat, Longbow, and Thunderbolt.
