This Is The 'Pits! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Mousey333 is working on a Wing Commander IV movie edit... and he has a unique idea to spruce up the necessary in-game combat sequences - a new kind of widescreen cockpit overlay. He explains: "...using after effects I can actually trace out the space and put in real game spaceflight in 100% opacity. There still are a few kinks to work out, as you'll see in the pic." He's looking for a 3D artist to help create target VDU images to match his new effects. You can learn more in this thread. A video sample is available here (8.0 mb .AVI).

Spam of the Tiger Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

We came across a strange blog article today -- it tells the story of a man investigating an unusual spam message only to find out that the strange text was a quote from Wing Commander: Fleet Action:
On to the content. The line “In our plan we already have our agents at work, weakening their will to fight, ready as well to kill their leaders of war when the time is right.” comes from the book Wing Commander: Fleet Action. This appears to be a very popular book, and you can get it, besides from that website, from Amazon for 46 cents. It seems unlikely that this is a marketing ploy for that.
What a odd story. I'm also at a loss to figure out how random web-extracted text helps sell anything. For those unfamiliar with the book, Fleet Action was the third book in Baen's original Wing Commander series. It was written by Dr. William Forstchen and is no longer in print. Read the original article here.
