Cyberion has been busy since he released his last model. He has not one but three new models for you to play with. They are all based on the Tallahassee cruiser, but two of them have been specially modified for the HTL team.
Well, in the middle of August I was contacted by Raptor, the guy behind the "Holding The Line" WC related sites and I was asked if I'm willing to contribute anything to the further development of HTL sites. We spoke about 3D models of course. Well after short discussion I agreed on helping Raptor to create some nice looking images of different WC ships. Those images required the models of course. So my first task was to create 2 cruisers based on Tallahasse design.
You can download the model files here.
Well I didn't have any of the Tallahasse type cruiser, so I spent a few day creating one.
I've made low-poly count model to use in various games-mods-whatever and the model with a little bit more detail.
When I finished the Tallahasse model, I began my work on those 2 new cruisers. First one was Barham class cruiser, which is 1/3 bigger than Tallahasse type itself. Second one was Stealth Cruiser - Nemesis, which pretty much kept the original design of Tallahasse except some additional parts, which make you to understand that its really the Stealth Cruiser.
Games that Rock: Wing Commander 3
Nerds that Geek has posted a quick flashback on the majesty of Wing Commander 3. The article's not long, but it captures the essence of what made The Heart of the Tiger great. The author credits the game for kickstarting FMV and next-level storytelling in games without compromising on the gameplay. (2018-05-25)

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. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. 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)
