    So few jump points between Earth and Kilrah

    Hmmm... I just noticed that there seems to be very very very few jump points that separate Kilrah and Earth, which begs the question: How does Confed not have Proxima packed with defensive installations that would be setting off lots and lots of alarm bells when the Nephilim appear, especially...

    Crew Sizes and the Exeter

    I looked at the crew complement for the Exeter Destroyer and was shocked at the size: 9, really? Might as well be a corvette. Source: https://www.wcnews.com/wcpedia/Exeter-Class_Destroyer I could see maybe 90, especially if there is a hanger, but 9. Strange to say the least. Then again, I...

    Navs, orientations, and ship positions

    Okay, I'm getting very disorientated with orientations and the relation between within navpoints and nav positions globally. Caution: This might come off a littler rant-ish. I apologize in advance. Most of this stems from frustration over trying to figure out and explain the confusion/issues...

    WCSO Bullet.Iff

    I'm doing some weapon importing to FC and I noticed a detail in the bullet.iff entries that is unknown.

    Modding Tutorials?
