    All Wings Considered Feedback and Questions

    I've never really known too much about the rebellion on Ghorah Khar, or its Kilrathi internal politics in general. I get the sense that most of it is the novels, not all of which I've read; I'm only aware there even was one because Thrakath ordered a full spread of missiles fired into the...

    What is your Wing Commander call sign?

    In the way, way beginning, I picked "Snoopy" as first callsign. Seemed appropriate for someone constantly fighting the cat next door (and not always winning). I later switched to "Toast", since Snoopy, though his combat record against the Red Baron and World War II might be distinguished and...

    Greetings, Starfighter (July 17, 2017)

    haha... F-104. Of course.

    Cheat Sheet: WC3 Turrets (July 12, 2017)

    Popguns and torps. I suppose that's at least one possible reason for the nickname, "Tin Can Sally"

    April Fools! (March 31, 2017)

    Congrats! I'm happy for anyone lucky enough to get to work a dream job. It's a blessing, hard to overstate being able to work on something you love every day. I figure most of us have, at one time or another, had a job just because everyone needs a job, and there's no wrong or crime in...

    A Modest Proposal: Saving Mr. LaFong (April 1, 2017)

    Voting for Disco Lando, since I don't think he has an account here ^_^

    Designing the Confederation Fleet (March 26, 2017)

    I see the Concordia's Phase Transit Cannon(s) were ultimately not included in the studio model... Oh well. Wasn't supposed to be a Confed thing until after Op. Thor's Hammer anyway, right?

    Fralthi bombing run WC2 - help?

    Maybe that's how Maniac managed those two capship kills in a Ferret.

    Where Everybody Knows Your Clan (February 12, 2017)

    If Kirha occasionally had to slam one down just to get through the day, I can't say I'd blame him.

    Star Citizen reaches 1.5M Backers, $120M Funding

    The title was a little clickbaity with the use of the word "troubled". Work at most tech companies, gaming or otherwise, is rarely what you'd call a smooth, trouble-free ride. Trouble is par for the course unless the work you're doing is utterly routine and the people have no personalities. I...

    Close Encounters Of The Kilrathi Kind (August 29, 2016)

    This actually reminds me of a WC fanfic I read a long, long time ago. I can't remember where I saw it or much in the way of details, but the way that one ended was, the human did win, and traded up from the crashed Scimitar to his opponent's Vaktoth and flew back into space.

    Would there be interest in this?

    I'd watch it :) Of course you'll want to save the stream for posterity in case some of us might or might not be able to watch it live?

    Star Citizen reaches 1.5M Backers, $120M Funding

    Oh, no worries about that. I am a fan of self-responsibility and the tempering of one's expectations. There are plenty of examples of late delivery, feature creep, and overhype when it comes to game development, so it's a rational concern as long as it's informed by information and experience...

    Wing Commander ship design inspirations

    The Jalthi looks like it too cues heavily from the original Cylon Raider, including its gun placement, size, and engine location. And I have always thought the overall layout of the Tiger's Claw very, very strongly resembles Robotech's SDF-1, particularly the line art version in the manual art.
