Maj. Striker has completed a new 3d animation for Wing Commander fans to check out his latest models in action.
Initially I was going to try to tell a story but all things have their limitations so this wound up being a brief clip of a couple of scimitars tangling with two Dralthi in good ole fashion space combat. I feel its a little better than my last animation and I certainly learned a lot doing this one. I love the WC community and although it's not much, this is my way of trying to give back to the community...by creating a few clips for those who can't get enough WC goodness. :)
It clocks in at three and a half minutes and 35 megs. It includes voices from the games to narrate. I really hope people eventually do turn something like this into a full story or movie someday. You can grab the clip here.
Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown
Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!

Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers
Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)
