Almost As Cramped As A Tarsus Update ID

Following on from the success of Capship Wednesday, we've decided to have another theme day.. Cockpit Thursday! First up is from Standoff as they have released screenshots of their rendition of the Raptor's cockpit. It's a pretty good likeness too as you can see below. The first screenshot is the WC1 version including the top part which is only seen when ejecting, the other two are from Standoff. Seven years on, the Prophecy engine still looks great. You can comment on the new screenshots in this thread.

Sabre Cockpit Gets Remodelled Update ID

Cyberion has sent along his latest 3D model, but this time it isn't a ship - it's a cockpit. As you can see below, it stays very close to the Sabre's original design and it's available for your use. The left screenshot is the original and the right one is Cyberion's design. You can also download Cyberion's model which is in Lightwave format here.

Nexus Launches In Europe Update ID

A couple of weeks ago we took a first look at a neat looking Homeworld style real-time strategy game, Nexus: The Jupiter Incident. The game is now out, and will be available in stores across Europe tomorrow. Sadly it looks like North America may have to wait a further few months before getting hold of the game, though there is now a multiplayer demo available for download from the game's website.

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)
