Standoff Turns Five Years Old
There's a neat birthday this week. If you dig through our News Archives, you'll run across a humble news bit from early May 2001. Buried in the middle of half a dozen other updates, we mentioned Eder's first preliminary Ferret model. His project didn't have a name yet, and he wasn't even sure which engine he was going to mod. But that effort would eventually grow into Wing Commander Standoff, the most popular fan project actively in the works today. Three of the game's five episodes has been released, and the game has branched out with online scoreboards and competitions. Someday it might even get a multiplayer component. And it all started with this update.
Eder checked in at the Chat Zone with word on his as-of-yet unnamed and un-engined Wing Commander mod... He's been working on Krant, Dralthi and Ferret models... and here's the Ferret! Expect a site soon...same time, WC Saga was also in transition between Conquest: Frontier Wars and Starshatter. It would finally merge with its sister project, Battlegroup Serpent, and begin focusing on Freespace 2 later in 2002.
