Singer/songwriter Ironduke has released a new release of the manual for Wing Commander TacOps. He says:
This new version of the game manual covers some of the advanced and campaign rules, as well as enhancing, clarifying and sometimes changing the basic rules. There's still a lot of work to do, but at least we have Shelton Slides now!
Grab manual 0.13 here (26 meg ZIP). He's also setting up another test game for online play - you can find details on that here. Good luck and good hunting!
Stepping back from the familiar, here's something outstanding - a new capital ship! This was an early concept for the Kilrathi flagship, before the 'battlecruiser' look was adopted. It looks like a heavy carrier... similar, perhaps, to the Snakeir from Secret Missions 2.
This is part of a series of beautiful Wing Commander Arena concept images graciously provided by Gaia Industries. You can find the original article here. You can thank the guys at Gaia by picking up Street Trace NYC on Xbox Live Arcade!
