I've got to say it, there's a compulsion in my actual blood to get it out of my system.....

I LOVE THOSE KAT FREIGHTERS!

 
Re: The official Saga eye candy corner
I really would have loved cockpits but whatever, I'm too excited to care as a new Wing Commander is coming out!

Besides, the stupid AI in Wing Commander 3 cheats if you leave your cockpit on. (On Crazy or Nightmare at least) and exploits the edges of your screen so I ended up turning them off most of the time.

These ships are actually Confed freighters. :lol:

Since proper cockpit implementation was not possible within given time frame we took a step back and evaluated our options. Without going into detail, we opted for a Wing Commander IV HUD and I think that in the end it doesn't matter much.

Tolwyn’s reputation for risk taking with other people’s lives was considered  to understate the facts. The admiral’s willingness to sacrifice anyone or anything to achieve his objectives had long been lauded in the popular press. He was “the man who got things done”.- Colonel Blair

No errors, no random CTDs, just pure fun and proof of why getting hit with missiles is a bad thing.

Re: The official Saga eye candy corner
Good for you guys! :) I know very little about Wing Commander as a whole, but based on how good Prologue and all of your teaser info have been, I can't wait to see the final product.

If you'd like to know more about Wing Commander, then (other than waiting a few more months for Saga) I highly recommend Wing Commander Standoff, which is a free download, and actually leaves off roughly where WCSaga begins. A word of warning though - the game is quite challenging, so you may want to refer to the strategy guide. It's actually a mod for Secret Ops, which is the first download on the Standoff page, and is set much later against a different enemy. IIRC Secret Ops is a fair bit easier, so you could try that first.

Re: The official Saga eye candy corner
Standoff and Unknown Enemy are great mods of the old vision engine (the one of Wing Commander Prophecy), if you like Wing Commander you should try them while you wait for Saga. The graphics may not look very high-res, but from a gameplay and story perspective they have done some really great things with that old engine.
But beware! Perhaps they will fuel your thirst for Saga even more :-)

Or just play through Wing Commander 1 - 3 while you wait.  Even all these years later they completely stand up to the test of time.

True. Compared to other games of that era Wing Commander has aged remarkably well.
(or maybe I'm just a retro fan so my opinion doesn't count. Hmmm.....)
