    Nice work Defiance. Graceful and Sleek as an Arrow always should be.

    Freelancer porting of Wing Commander ships

    So I went ahead and copied the files over to my Freelancer Installation. Fired it up and started a new game. I must say it was awesome watching The Donau get jumped by the flight of Dragons. So far I've only got as far as Completing Mission 1 B, the hunt for the Rouge Base. The Razors are...

    Happy Birthday Armada! (September 22, 2019)

    All it takes in WC2 is one hit to the Target Tracker, and it's game over torpedo run. Has to be one of the most frustrating things late game at K'Tithrak Mang. The other of course being the swarm of Sartha flown by the Drakhai Imperial Guard.

    Happy Birthday Armada! (September 22, 2019)

    Good to see you again Capi. I said that it was "near impossible", not that it was completely impossible. The one technique I found to work was to start locking at maximum range and then creep forward slowly staying at the edge of the Flak Guns range. It works better with the Banshee then the...

    I can remember Torpedo runs on the Lexington, and Shiraak were near impossible. In campaign mode this didn't really matter so much if you killed all the escorting fighters, and you have a Torpedo capable craft the game jumps right to the cut scene of the Carrier's Death.

    Freelancer porting of Wing Commander ships

    Looks good L.I.F. , It brings back memories of flying the Thuderbolt, Arrow, and Dragon in Starlancer. I can remember using SLEdit to edit the stats on the Dragon to get the speed up towards 500 and making the Afterburner Fuel 999, closest I could get to the unlimited afterburner fuel. The...

    After Action Report 2019.227 Last Night I performed two anti-ship attack simulations with The up-armored Epee equipped with a torpedo. Both attack runs were against Ralatha. On the first attack run, I used my afterburners to take up a position about 10,000 Meters from the Ralatha to set up my...

    So I've performed some initial testing in Wing Commander Academy. Thanks to HCI's WC2/Academy Ship Editor, I've added additional armor to the Epee equivalent to that on the Ferret. The Epee can now take two missile hits with shields up. The first hit knocked out the forward shields and armor...

    Sounds like a good opportunity to take WC2 and the Ship editor out of mothballs after work, and try it out :D
