Hi all,

First off, some praise: Last night I showed WCSaga to a friend of mine who's been a WC fan even longer than I have (and I first played it around '95). He was totally blown away, especially by the quality of the visuals and the combat. It looks, feels and plays like the classic WC games we grew up with. Job well done!

Some ideas we discussed to improve the experience even further, should you ever get around to developing updates:
- An old-style killboard like the one on the Tiger's Claw in WC1 would be a nice touch.
- Take-off and landing cinematics, maybe even with a comment from the mechanic on the amount of damage you suffered, really provide that extra bit of immersion, and smooths the transition between briefing, spaceflight and debriefing.

Once again, a heartfelt thanks from us old-timers for a brilliant piece of work.

Both type of cutscenes would be easy to add if you can find someone to render them though.

So those of you 3rd party modders who want to see them, get to it. :D

So you will not be adding any additional features?

That's what he said, isn't it?

I am sorry to hear that there will no longer be anymore updates. It looks like you were our last hope in reviving space combat sims. I tried the links on your web page and either they no longer exist or they are no longer supported. Thanks for all your efforts and I guess I'll keep what I have and replay until someone else comes up with something better.

There will be a number of small updates - some stuff that did not made it into the initial release. Beyond that we currently have no plans of creating any additional content. As much fun as it was creating Wing Commander Saga we have to shift our focus elsewhere.
