I am still horribly stuck on the maps and animation. So in order to cheer myself up, I rebuilt the Object Viewer, DogFight and MainMenu:

Above all, I think Strike Commander is just difficult to enjoy. For me personally, Strike Commander is a game I really want to play again, especially because somehow I never got around to finishing it. I also want to give Wings of Glory a proper go, and I'd love to replay Pacific Strike. But I can't do these things, because these games seem to have very poorly stood the test of time. The terrain graphics are terribly dated, lacking in detail and difficult to make out (they do actually look a lot nicer in your screenshots than in the actual game engine), the steering is poor and unresponsive (my fault: I'm not a joystick gamer, and even if I were, I simply do not have a joystick here I could play with).I wonder who will do that though: Posting here it seems Strike Commander is a forgotten game contrary to the Wing Commander serie.
I just asked out of curiosity, because I know next to nothing about displaying or persisting 3D data.I wonder who will do that though: Posting here it seems Strike Commander is a forgotten game contrary to the Wing Commander serie.
