Thanks to the kind folks at Raylight we now have the article that goes with yesterdays Wing Commander Prophecy image. Translated from Italian:
Wing Commander Prophecy
In what will probably be Raylight's first product, they show how they can use their technology effectively. It recieved "best runner-up award 2002" at the most recent E3, recognized for its mission design, multiplayer options, freedom of play, amazing sound effects and use of artificial intelligence, not to mention its use of polygons and fluid scrolling. Originally called Star Giants, a quality clone of the legendary Wing Commanders, it changed its name after the rights were aquired officially from Electronic Arts.
Image Caption: Exiting the hangar is done entirely with polygons.
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.

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)

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)
