New Prophecy, Secret Ops Update Adds Ships & More! Update ID

The newest version of the Prophecy and Secret Ops Model Upgrade Pack has been released! It includes a whole pile of exciting ships that have been gracing the news over the last few months. There are additional bug fixes as well as some new features to smooth in-game graphical loading. And if you dare, there's a tantalizing new option called 'ultraNightmare'... Grab the new update here! (75 meg exe)
It's MUP Release day! Version .32a is packaged and ready for you to try! Changes in .32a:

New Models:

  • Barracuda Corvette
  • Orca Destroyer
  • Plunkett Artillery Cruiser
  • Squid Interceptor
  • Stingray & Stingray Cluster
  • Vaktoth Heavy Fighter
  • Howard Day's TB-81 Shrike
  • Excalibur 2.0
Other Enhancements:

WCP Unlimited now includes new features for pre-loading materials and bitmaps. The intent is to correct the "pause" that occurs in-game when ships are dynamically generated (ie. second waves, ships that jump in, etc.) This will minimally increase load times at the start of missions, but will provide a smoother and more stable in-game experience. If this causes instability you may disable pre-caching by adding the following lines to your WCPUNL.cfg file:

preloadMaterials=0
preloadBitmaps=0

For those pilots who think they have the sand for it, try adding the following setting:

ultraNightmare = 1

Bug Fixes:

  • Corrected reported issue with Tigershark rocket pods
  • Corrected Tigershark mesh - added fuselage mounted mass-drivers
  • recolored WCP tigershark texture to make it more like FMV model

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown

Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!

Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers

Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)
