MartySheen spotted a cool Wing Commander mention on today's MSN UK page. The gaming section has posted a feature on games that desperately need a sequel. They acknowledge that space sims are few and far between lately, but their editors still hold out hope for a new WC. It also looks like some inspiration for the mention came from the recent UGO article. You can check out the whole feature here.
It seems that in recent years space sims have gone the way of the dinosaur. But a new entry in the Wing Commander logbook could do what the Battlestar Galactica reboot did for sci-fi TV shows.
SolCommand has built more models for fan projects that need some extra digital muscle. His latest batch includes several different types of turrets for mounting on large ships. You can also go through his archive for a variety of different sci-fi designs.
Thought it would be cool if I give all these models to the community, maybe someone will find a use for some of them. Anyway I released my models for public download on another Freelancer community website (The Starport) and since then I've created some more, some even textured. I hope my gift for you and all the hard I put in these models will be appreciated. There are about 70 or more models available for download, most are WIPs and they're in 3DS and OBJ format. You can use them for any mod/game you wish.
