Congratulations Award Winners! Update ID

Hundreds of votes have been cast, and we now have the results! Many many Wing Commander endeavors made their mark on 2012, but only a couple can win the contest. Thanks to all who helped select these few! Without further delay, here are the winners:


Pix's Origin Adventures has won in the category of Wing Commander Web Site of the Year! There's plenty of attention devoted to Wing Commander and Ultima at his site, but Pix is also careful to include Bioforge, Cybermage and many other Origin series in his research. In addition to gathering the most votes, we also hear that quite a few former Origin veterans use Pix's site as their go-to source of information or to relive old times.




The Wing Commander RPG Wiki is our Web Site Runner Up! In mid 2011, capi3101 created a plan that outlined exactly what his RPG project needed, and over the course of 18 months, he proceeded to build exactly that. Along the way, fans were kept informed by weekly updates, and several related side-projects were also released.



The Fan Project of the Year is WC Saga! Its selection comes as little surprise, as anticipation for the game's release had been building for many years. That event came in March, which brought significant attention to the Wing Commander series from around the web. After taking some time off, the team is now working on ports for other operating systems.



The Fan Project runner up is Klav's Models! In 2012, Klavs both released new designs and improved on older ones in order to provide fans an opportunity to own a physical piece of Wing Commander. Work continues to increase feasible sizes and decrease at-cost pricing. There's even tantalizing prospects for pre-painted designs!




And that's it for 2012! Our biggest thanks goes out to all the people who work hard every day to keep the Wing Commander community going with exciting fan projects and dedicated web sites. Here's to a great 2013!

Classic Joystick Evokes Hardware Nostalgia

Dennis Mull came across a hardware setup from the mid '90s that's a pretty neat time capsule of the era. The Quickshot "Squadron Commander" QS-202 is a very early example of a Hands-On Throttle And Stick (HOTAS). Lots of joysticks at the time were sold as "compatible with Wing Commander," and this one includes pre-programmed controls for Wing Commander, Wing Commander 3 and Strike Commander. (2018-05-19)

Comparing P2's Ship Seller Before & After

Check out this pre-release screenshot from Privateer 2 that AD discovered and compare it to one from the final game.
