It's been a while since we've reported on the latest updates involving WC Tactics for Nexus. The mod has been going some internal shake ups, but the core gameplay still seems to be intact. The Scimitar Medium Fighter and Waterloo Cruiser have been added to the game engine. Nexus' interface is pretty slick, so it's neat to see more and more Wing Commander ships added in.
Although a version 1.4 release of Flight Commander is still in the works, the game's creator eddieb has released an interim patch. The patch fixes a pair of problems which will really only be of interest to people who are modding the game.
If this sounds like something you need, you can download the 600k patch here.
- Fix choice of formation, doesn't always use 0 any more.
- Added a new script command Ship_setAIEnabled to disable the AI for a given ship. This is useful if a ship is flying in formation and you want it to stay put.
