do you have a list of all the ships you have in the game? If so, do you plan on using all the WC ships, or just ones from WCP? Do you plan on getting the models from somewhere, or are you making them yourself? Sorry for all the questions, but I think this is a cool mod, and just wanted to see what you plan on doing with it. ;)

Cool. You should allow playing video cutscenes, cloaking fighters, and terrain battles like in WC3 and WC4. When will it come out? :D

One thing I'd love to see implemented is an ITTS. The targeting system just seems so alien without it. That aside, it's an awesome engine. Keep it up.

Yep, that's already implemented.

It should come with just about all the ships from WCP. The converters I have work best with ships from the WCP engine, so you could easily import anything from WCP, WCSO, Unknown Enemy, or Standoff. Which gives me no shortage of models, to be sure. I've also got models of just about everything from WC3, WC4, and armada, but these don't have ship stats, so aren't included. Of course if others want to contribute models, that's very welcome too.

well I'm working on some WC1 ships, (you can check my site for a pic) and I know the guys over at WCU have some WC2 ships. Mine are coming along a little slow, but you can use whatever I have once they're finished. :)

eddie, before we even discuss the improvements i think I should make clear that the original was incredible. I've been creating missions ever since I finished the first campaign and can't wait for more.

...although the upgrades look great

...can't wait for more

Thanks, I'm glad to see you're making missions. Please send them to me asap, so I can include them in 1.1.
