Not content to stick with the way things were in 1.01, John Cordell and team are working on continued improvements to Gemini Gold. Their Galaxy model has been retextured again for a future update. The shots below are tentative, and feedback will help polish the ship for the next version of the project. Game interfaces and base art are also on the list of upcoming improvements. You can help lend a hand over at Crius.net
Everything looks brownish because we have a "red sun" here. :)
I'll see what can be done for the final version. We would appreciate some feedback and suggestions to improve the final look.
You can see how the previous textures looked here.
Back in April last year, Zalmodegikos started work on an interactive flash-based map of the known WC universe. The project stalled six months ago, but Zal has returned and wants to judge interest in any further development. The map in its present state can be viewed here. It currently has ten sectors in place with complete scrolling, zooming, and searching abilities. If you think the project shows promise and should be continued, your feedback would be appreciated. Just click the discuss link below and voice your approval to ensure that work continues.
Don't forget that the Wing Commander Movie will be airing in high definition on Wednesday, January 18 on HBO HD. There will also be a handful of standard showings on several other HBO affiliates throughout the day. January seems to be Wing Commander month on the channel. Although there are a limited number of additional air dates over the next few months, the high definition presentations are currently all scheduled to occur in just the next couple weeks.
