    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    I can't remember where I saw it, but somewhere, I read that the mod kit was still going to be released. That being said, unless I missed something, that seems unlikely at this point. I could seriously cry right about now... Does anyone know for sure if the mod kit is DOA or not? Also, if it is...

    Ugh.... OMDG space sim fans have the be the unluckiest bunch there is. :/ Anyone have any idea of how moddable it is "as is?" Thanks

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    I'm glad I found a RGO thread already going to ask this. I heard that the modkit is dead. Please for the love of god tell me that isn't true! (While being honest...)

    Goodbye, Eagle One (December 10, 2007)

    Wow I'm just seeing this now. I remember Eagle One. I used to hang out in both chats, as the "split" had already happened when I came along. I also remember you LOAF and the others of the CIC. I don't think I was going by Darkmatter back then, but I could be wrong. I believe at that time I may...

    Gauging interest in a remaster

    Hi, I've been a long time member but don't post much. I've loved WC since I first saw an image on the front cover of issue 1 of some PC magazine. I've posted in the last few months in some of the WC improvement threads. I did a media arts program and a gaming post grad program. I never ended up...

    Original SFX in the Kilrathi Saga?

    I'm surprised HCl's page doesn't have them. BTW where are the midi files and if they're in a special compressed file, how do I access it? Thanks!

    Idea: WC1 to WCA conversion

    I remember making missions for HCl's first WC3 editor. I think I had to input co-ordinates by hand in dos. It was a total trial and error thing. I went by Firefly back then. [Sorry didn't see the age of the last post since it wasn't far down the first page.]

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    See, if there are already crazy awesome models then there's no point remaking what is already great. It's to bad the CIC can't let you have a look at the source code to see how to get around that sprite limit. Personally I think 2 games should be done. A completely faithful WC1,2,&Priv in the...

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    Sorry but I thought I remember seeing instructions on how to use sprite enhanced ships that aren't inside a "ship.v04" file but as afolder to fold the files. Did I miss read that or am I just blind. Thanks, DM

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    So, from a 3d modelling standpoint, is there anything that doesn't already have a good, up to date model? Thanks, DM

    Adventures in Explorations: WC1 Edition

    You could do a lot with an engine like that, and yes, you could do a straight "graphics enhanced" but faithful conversion for a game like Privateer but I've found that if you truly want to do a faithful update you can't stray to far from the original game. This much more up to date engine would...

    Adventures in Explorations: WC1 Edition

    You know, it's to bad that the latest space sim engine we have to use is FS2. It especially sucks that last I heard, there was no way to remove the "curved turn" that FS had. :( I thought I read that someone had made a flight engine on their own but I don't know how it's features compare to FS2...

    Adventures in Explorations: WC1 Edition

    I was directed to this thread when I asked about renders above 360px. Has anyone made any attempt to increase what size image the program will handle? As a follow up question, the default resolution for WC2 is higher then WC1. What is the max size for WC2, and if it is a fair sized bigger...

    So can WC1 handle ship sprites bigger than 360px?
