M3RcAden is working on a Wing Commander mod for Sins of a Solar Empire. His focus is on the late Kilrathi war and on into the Prophecy timeframe. He's got experience modifying this strategy game for other purposes, so we're anxious to see what he can do here now. Right now the main issue to work through is extracting the authentic original models into a useful format. If anyone has any tips on this part of the process or would otherwise like to help, check out the CIC Forums. M3RcAden already has a Dralthi, Longbow and carrier functioning in the engine, and they're looking pretty good for 20 year old designs!
I am a long time fan of Wing Commander and have played through 3 and 4 countless times, and have a serious longing for the Kilrathi War. I am a modder of Sins of a Solar Empire, a 4X strategy game and was thinking not to long ago how awesome it would be to have a Wing Commander mod for it.
I am curious, can anyone give me a link, or possibly a tutorial to retrieve, for the models from the above mentioned games? I mean actual in-game models that were used by Chris Roberts and the team, as I want to bring the feel of the original games to a RTS setting. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
