Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
A new website for Wing Commander: Hostile Frontier is in the works.  Here's a screenshot of my current progress.  I'll put it online as soon as all the pages under "Navigation" are completed.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
The new website for Wing Commander: Hostile Frontier is now open! Check it out here.

And a new entry in my Wing Commander: Hostile Frontier Developer Diaries has been posted on the Dev Diaries page.  I will soon be updating this page with the previous developer diary entries.

Also, I'll be away for part of the March break, but hopefully I'll still be able to work on WCHF during that time.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Well, I don't know how to make textures in the style of WCSaga final, but if I can get help from Scooby and other WCS team members with that, I'll try and texture them in the same style as WCSaga final

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
We will probably publish all the Photoship files involved and I'll ask Scooby for all the Photoshop scripts he used (and I'll publish mine as well of course). Scobby also has written a few tutorials which we will also publish of course. That should help you folks along.

Edit: That's still up to Scooby mostly of course and other modelers involved, depending on the model in question, but I doubt they have anything against releasing the files. We'll discuss this amongst the team once we have released.

Yup, I'll release the scripting   :)

Re: WCHF Discussion thread (was: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?)
Will you guys also release whatever tool(s) you used to create the nebula skyboxes? I'd like to convert my backgrounds into skyboxes so that people with lower-end computers don't get a large performance hit from the backgrounds.

Re: WCHF Discussion thread (was: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?)
I have a question for the German-speaking WC fans: Should I get the WCHF website translated into German, since I am also releasing the WCHF Demo in German?

Btw what happened with your recreation of the Pre-WC3/Prophecy-style flightphysics?

It had a bad effect on gameplay balance, so I'm not officially supporting it anymore.

Re: WCHF Discussion thread (was: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?)
More screenshots! (and some new videos, too!)

Finally, ship nameplates are working properly! The new shaders for the 3.6.14 mediavps (available in this thread and in the 3.6.12 mediavps patch/update) alleviate the problem where the nameplate would appear as a flat black polygon if "specularity" was applied to it.

New thruster FX redux! Thanks to Jessnec for handing me his unused thruster effects that he originally made for Syrk: The Unification Wars:


And I've finally added a few things to the hangar of the Wake-class CVE:


Also, here are the videos:

I've been working on a simulator mission to help players learn essential combat tactics.  Many players couldn't get past mission 2 of the WCSaga Prologue, supposedly because they kept getting hit by enemy missiles.  This video mainly shows the FREDed ship selection system that will be used in this mission and other new simulator missions:

This is the most awesome explosion ever in WCHF:

The videos are encoded in OGG Theora, so you may need to use VLC to play it, though some web browsers support playing OGG theora natively.  Also, sorry for the lack of sound, but the software I was using to record these videos doesn't support audio capture.  BTW, these videos work really well in Firefox 4!

I tried adding some more windows to the Exeter, but it didn't initially work out as well as I had hoped...

Now that's more like it!

I've added a new entry to the developer diaries.  This one's about mission design; making good missions and then making them awesome.

NOTE: I'm still looking for mission designers, writers, and FREDers.  Please apply here if you're interested.

Here are some screenshots of ships with shadows.  I was playing around with Valathil's shadow build and it was very awesome seeing the ships in the F3 lab.

Re: WCHF Discussion thread (was: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?)
Dayum, I haven't posted in this thread since last year!

Anyways, here's a status update.

I'm trying to add a checkpoint to mission 1, and it's not working out very well.  As of now, I can't even autopilot to Nav 1.
I'm also working on mission 4.

Finally, I've decided to give the WCHF Landreich capships the same type of overhaul I gave the Bengal-class for WCAG and Enigma 2666.  It will be a while before I post some screenshots, though, as they're not nearly ready to be imported into the game.
