Chevieblazer has been working on a mod for Nexus: The Jupiter Incident for the last few months. The game is a warship strategy game, and blazer's additions have come in the form of WC1/2 era capital ships. The original game looked great, so there's a lot of potential for stellar graphics and gameplay here. Parts of the mod are still in the early stages, so there's room to help if you'd like to assist Chevieblazer. Below are sample shots of the Exeter, Snakeir, Bengal and Hornet.
eddieb has released several various Flight Commander upgrades this weekend. The mission editor has a friendlier interface and allows additional flexibility with in-flight comms and neutral ships. There are some informal upgrades to the 1.1 version of the game/engine as well. Some special tweaks will allow better video playback and multimedia adjustments. You can grab the upgrades at the Flight Commander site or read about them here.
