You're The Man Now Cat Update ID

Never one to leave well enough alone, Bob McDob set out to improve on Wing Commander YTMNDs of the past. This is what kids do for fun nowadays I suppose. You can visit his creation here. It's a combination of a WC2 midi and a neat artistic rendering of Prince Thrakhath.
<ZFGokuSSJ1> Is anything supposed to happen?

You can look at more Wing Commander images while background music plays here and here.

German Kilrathi Role Playing Ground Relaunches With New Features Update ID

Last month we highlighted major role playing games that currently exist in the Wing Commander community. Most of them have been around for a while, and there was one classic RPG we missed. The Kilrathi Empire group has been successfully conducting business for about five years and was actually a Fan Project of the Year runner up in 2002. Although regular operation was paused recently, the game has now been relaunched and should be better than ever. WCKE exists completely in German, so their available player base is somewhat limited. Germany has always had a tremendous Wing Commander following however, so there should still be quite a few fans ready to play. You can find more information at kilrathi-net.de.

The prior system has been thoroughly improved so that it now features free choice of clans with distinct abilities and characteristics. The cultural information, especially in the forums, has been broadened repeatedly to create a more sophisticated background for the Kilrathi. The missions - fighter-based combat as well as spectacular ground missions - are being carried out via IRC - also following a new and more plausible set of rules. Our role-playing forums have been remodeled extensively, giving each character a much better chance to develop their own background stories as well as to present their personal experiences. This is also the new main focus: not just fighting, but living your character. The main enemy is still the Terrans, who have recently developed greatly. But the Kilrathi have not been idle either. It might also be possible that the face of our enemy will change sometime soon.

The game is still exclusively played in German language. The aforementioned refers to the game following the original Kilrathi Empire's storyline only. There is another game currently in the (re)works, to be resumed in the future. It is the one reported in the news in 2004 and also features many well inspired changes to the set of rules from the original, with new sub-clans, their own forums and a completely new and different story.

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)
