With all of the fan mod excitement recently in the air, this is a reminder that the CIC hosts a large archive of Origin's ship models. It includes almost all of the ships from Wing Commander 2 & Privateer, plus background objects and location renderings. Most are available in .3ds format and are much more detailed than the final versions seen in game. Fans can check out the package here (230 meg zip). If you do something fun with these, please show it off to your fellow Wingnuts!
3D models used in the production of the game--ships, weapons, environments, it's all there... and incredibly detailed. Every 3D model was created with high resolution graphics and then reduced to a small bitmap for the game itself.
