The Wing Commander mod for Star Trek Armada 2 continues to make new headway. We reported on its resurgence after a five-year hiatus earlier this year, and Janos Miklos is back with some addition screenshots and news to share. Right now the Confederation and Kilrathi factions are part of a larger mod with a variety of Star Trek races, but the plan is ultimately to streamline the project into a conventional human versus kat setup. You can read all about the mod and download a copy for yourself here.
Hello Wing Commander Team,
I just made new screenshots from my game mod and would be nice to publish these too on your amazing site. I really love Wing Commander and I liked to had the opportunity, back in 2012, to convert that Wing Commander mod from Star Trek Armada 1 to Star Trek Armada 2 using the Fleet Operations game engine.
Right now, the Terran Confederation it's integrated in a new game mod and can be download from here. In a few months [now partially complete], in that game mod will be the Kilrathi race too as a playable race, fighting against the Terran Confederation or other alien space forces.
Wish you all the best,
Discover The Darkening Under Development
Here's a neat Privateer 2 preview that Pix recently found. It's from the September 1995 edition of PC Home. This was just before the game officially became a Privateer title, but the article draws the connection that The Darkening's existence owes itself to Wing Commander 3 & 4's live video success.
