That's a Sprite for Sore Eyes Update ID

Bearcat and FekLeyrTarg reminded us recently about a cool ancient project that Jetlag undertook to screenshot all the various angles that were rendered for WC1&2 ships. This feat was accomplished with HCl's Ship Viewer program. We've shown off the WC1 lineup before, but the WC2 slate never made it into the news. Both are available below! Hopefully these are useful to some fan project out there - they're pretty interesting even as a reference.
Now that ya got 'em, whatcha gonna do with 'em? :p
And if you missed the Targeting VDU Megapost last year, be sure to check it out too. Those images come from every game in the series!

Upgraded Prophecy Walkthrough Highlights Enhancements

Just in time to help ease some of the anticipation for his next release, DefianceIndustries has filmed this video walkthrough of the Prophecy & Secret Ops Model Upgrade Pack.

If you haven't tried out the upgrade so far, this is a great opportunity to see how things come together in motion! (2018-08-16)

On Your Mark 5, Get Set, Go!

Here’s a great find from AD. It's a photo of the "timeslice" setup used to film one of the deleted scenes we showed off last week. The movie Rapiers say “CONFED MK 5 RAPIER” below their Space Force roundels. (2018-08-15)

Concept Video Shows Alternative Wreckage Removal

Here's an early look at how Rosie's crash scene in the Wing Commander Movie was originally envisioned. It features a slightly different take on how wreckage would be removed from the deck. In the theatrical cut of the movie, a pilot's crashed fighter is pushed off the runway by some sort of tractor vehicle, presumably driven by a maintenance crew. (2018-08-14)

Stylized Raptor Takes Off

NinjaLA made this pretty nifty sketch inspired by the Raptor heavy fighter. He started with the familiar bones of the craft and then started filling in the connections in a radical way. There's a careful balance of authenticity and artistic license necessary, but it seems like this technique could be applied to a number of ships with wild results! (2018-08-13)
