Cyberion has polished up a recreation of the Escort Carrier featured in End Run.
Helping out Raptor from "Holding the Line" web novel. I've modeled this carrier from the art found on the "EndRun" novel's cover. This model might be updated in the future to make it as realistic as possible. I will add some nurnes, details and create better texture maps.
It already looks pretty neat. You can find the lightwave file here.
Expansion I to the massively multiplayer Star Wars Galaxies has been released and is now available in stores. It takes the original Galaxies and adds long-awaited space combat and travel to the game. Numerous stretches of space have been added to explore and fight in. Basic combat is performed like a regular space combat simulator with augmentations gathered from the RPG portion of the game. The experience doesn't just occur from the cockpit however. Wing Commander fans should particularly note that the larger ships have full interiors to live in as well. That's something I would have very much wanted in Privateer Online. As we previously mentioned, lots of Wing Commander veterans work on Galaxies.
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)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape
Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
