Exarch is back to resume work on his Nexus mod again, and he's uploaded a preliminary test release for people to try out. This tech demo includes a couple of fighters and capships for both the Confederation and Kilrathi. Only a very basic AI has been implemented and fighter mechanics still have a handful of bugs, but the preview should give people an early idea of what to expect when more elements are completed. Nexus owners should download this pack (56 megs) and unzip the contents to the Mods folder of the Nexus directory on their computers. Select WC Apocalypse from the modifications menu in the game to play.
Just fair warning, the AI in skirmish missions is as dumb as a brick. I'm working on trying to modify it to acting more appropriately, but I haven't had experience with the scripting language. Thus, for this release, don't expect much in the way of a challenge, unless you're playing against another human. This is just to show the ships in action, more or less, and give you a sense of what is to come.
