First of all I would like to thank you all to have released this amazing game!!!
I've started nearly 20 years ago with "Wing Commander Privateer" and this game made me trully get addicted. Then years later I bought "Wing Commander Privateer 2" and "Wing Commander Prophecy".

Sure between the basically "original" Wing Commander games and the Privateer games is a difference. But I liked both!

I have nothing to complain about the game! And even if I would have something to complain, then I wouldn't really have the right for, because this amazing game is for free. Recently I have unfortunatelly problems with the keys... maybe some of you folks can give me a tip about? The Targeting System is somehow different... at least it is not really putting me the nearest enemy ships on targeting system.

Well else, about such a poll, it would be really nice if you find time and mood to maybe creat more terran ships from all "Wing COmmander" and the "Wing Commander Privateer 1" I never flow the Talon or Stiletto, but once i allways wanted and was so much disapointed with Privateer 1 that the choice of ships was so limited...

Maybe you might even include an new function that you are assigned to lead your own fleet. So also lead capital ships.

I was just thinking... the Midway must looks like giant beside the Hermes :D

To include those bugs from Prophecy, I am against, because it would turn like in Prophecy that you and the cats would walk and in paws... instead to blow those kitty cats back into their litter box. If a three party war woudl start.... I guess the overview would be lost quickly, because too many enemies would have to been killed and too many missions.

Maybe you might make a release one day of a kind of Privateer. But if you would do this, please then not without the Planet New Detroit, Planet Oxford, Perry Naval Base and New COnstantinople Base, and also not without Eden System :D

Don't get me wrong, I don't await of you to realize all this, it is only an inspiration of an WC Fan.

Like I've allready readed arround here in the Forum, someone said about the sequences in the bars... sure I also miss such sequences, or on bases... I also know that it would be a lot of work to realize those animated ingame movies, but it would be amazing.

What else might be nice would be maybe an Pirate or Tycoon campaign... I mean playing as a pirate or a Industrial Tycoon, capturing ships or building own fleets to maybe reinforce the Confederation with it...

Sorry I write much :D
By the way... does any editor exists for the game?
Would be amazing if i could creat my own fleet^^


Greetings from germany


P.S.:

Apparently you folks like Southpark and Dr.House, I like it!!!

Hi there, and welcome!

If you are German you should definitely check out wingcenter.net
You can talk there about Wing Commander in German all day :)

As for the Nephilim: At the moment they are not available in the game, but when my Kilrathi mod is finished and there are others interested in them (especially modders) that might also be a project I'd be interested in. So that might actually happen.

And yes, there is a mission editor. It is called FRED and is available in the download section.
Using it is quite easy to learn and there are also some tutorials available.
If you have problems you should either ask here (in the modding sub-forum) or at hard-light.net, there is also a WCS sub-forum there.

If you are skilled in modding (3D modelling, UV-mapping, textures, 2D work (Photoshop etc.), programming, voice acting, sound editing, storywriting or something similar) you should also consider to join one of the projects that are already being worked on.
We can make more stuff happen! Check out the modding forums for more infos.

Well, if you don't mind seeing another engine we are already there (Unknown Enemy), but of course I would like the pretty Saga graphics and modding possibilities AND having Nephilim. :)

You can implement that rather easily. Just edit the model, adding a gun point (which is really easy) and assign a weapon to it in its ship.tbl entry.

Hi,

Just finished playing both Campaigns. Epic, an absolutely fantastic effort. Better than all the others put together in my opinion. I particularly loved watching the Cap ships fighting each other, nice touch .

I would like to see a border worlds conflict campaign. Many of us have followed the Vega campaign through to the destruction of Kilrah. Moving on to the Border worlds and beyond. So it be nice to follow the next step in the Wing Commander universe.

I thought maybe a campaign set in the same time period as WC3 and Darkest Dawn but off in some other place with its own story line. Perhaps in the Enigma system. After the end of the war a Kilrathi clan refuses to accept the surrender and seek revenge and to restart the war. A Kilrathi clan leader with his battle fleet raids and then invades Terran Space. A Terran carrier that missed the final battles because it was being refit after a battle with the Kilrathi. On board are some pilots fresh out of flight school with some more seasoned pilots. The Terran carrier does battle with a Kilrathi to prevent raiding and then to repulse an invasion. The carrier then goes into the Clans territory with some unexpected help from a Kilrathi battle group sent to preserve the peace and defeat the rouge Kilrathi clan.

Opinions?

There are already some fan-made campaigns in progress.
Actually I have no clue what the stories are going to be, except that of my own mod of course. Below you can see what I know about them.

- Enigma 2666 (WC2 timeline, but also with WC1 ships)
- Last Line of Defence (WC3 timeline, but in the Enigma sector)
- Operation Serpent (plays after WC4, in the Borderworlds)
- Hostile Frontier (using the story of the novel False Colors)
- Advance Guard (supposed to be a WC1+2 mod in an alternate timeline or something)
- my own Kilrathi mod

In my mod/campaign you will be flying as a Kilrathi pilot in the final stages of the war, in the year 2668. Also my mod tries to create an environment for other modders to use, so you can do your own Kilrathi campaign based on the mod, with all the assets.


If you other modders read this: We should really make an overview thread where everyone explains what his mod is supposed to be.
