Bob recently found the website for Quadrant Epsilon, a project to expand or improve upon Wing Commander Privateer 2. Of all the mods I've seen over the years, this might be the first for this game. It seems their work slowed down to a trickle a little while back, but if this sounds like an exciting idea to you, contact their team and see if you can restart things.
This project is aimed to create a sequel/clone to the almost-famous Privateer II. The main aspect of the game will be the multiplayer part. We are currently in a pre-alpha phase so no binary downloads are available at the time. We are close to an alpha release though, but the latest holidays kinda slowed things down.That's not uncommon for fan projects, but putting in some good P2 work was a noble effort nonetheless. There's a couple background wallpapers to check out there and a forum to monitor their progress.
