The forum topic at sci-fi meshes s unrelated to Pioneer really, just that Howard happened to mention it briefly there.
I really doubt that. The ships shown there are probably some models Howard made "just for fun" or some other project he's involved in. My guess.
I had a similar question on my mind, which is why I asked about it at SFM. I'm not really worried after Howard's reply though. This other thing may be a test bed of some sort.
I don't read that into it, and it'd be kind of strange with all the effort put into researching the specific setting. Hopefully not, anyhow, that'd be pretty disappointing. That Jalthi looks like a great opponent, and people are really looking forward to flying the new Tarsus.Hmmm... I'm getting the feeling that they've decided to continue the game outside of the Wing Commander/Privateer universe.
You don't have to worry about wingnuts waiting We waited for almost a decade for a new game and look then look what happens. Now don't think I wouldn't like to try it before a decade is out, but wingnuts for the most part are very patient fans, I mean we did fight and win a 30 year war. What's a few years?The project is still on track, Howards busy with his real life work, Joel is in the process of getting a job, and my schedule leaves me very little to no free time at all. Please keep in mind, this is an independent from the ground up fan creation, it'll be a loong time before anything definate is released. Only so many hours in the day sadly, heheh.
