WCHF Discussion thread (was: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?)
Hello there, just woundering if anyone of you heard of the landreich campaign kevin caccamo was planning for saga. Is it still alive? would be great to "play" false colours. here's the topic: http://www.crius.net/zone/showthread.php?t=23425
Unfortunately the guy is banned from the CIC  (scratch one more  :doubt:). you have to love the hornet though  ;7

regards.

mike.

P.S: while we're here, I'm woundering if anyone has attempted to model a wake escort carrier (E G: the tarawa)? This could also serve perhaps one day: the tarawa's flight to kilrah (the first one been to kilrah) seems epic. :nod:

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Yep.  My forum name at CIC is Kevin Caccamo. :)

The project is going well, but it's still very young, and hasn't made much progress.

And yeah, the guys from Standoff have modelled a wake-class escort carrier.

Some people are pretty confused about the story, though.  The campaign will follow False Colors, but in a different character's perspective.  Part 1 begins right before Jason Bondarevsky joins the FRLS Independence, Part 2 begins when the Independence jumps into Vaku, and Part 3 will begin in Baka Kar.

BTW, the ban message:

That was for saying there was references to "Kats" in the WCP movie list.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Don't fret it kevin. I've been banned simply because I said I preferred to follow several fan projects like standoff or saga or even tango rather then invest into an xbox and arena. And I won't be coming back to them which is good. :nod:

Good work on your campaign: I always wanted to play false colours as I liked the plot. There are so many things of opportunity to be discovered here thanks to fred. One day perhaps we'll mirror the tarawa's flight or the ranger's glory MOD storyline?

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Yeah, good luck getting that campaign up and running. I think building things on the FS2 base is the way to go - nothing else will give you the eye candy people demand these days.

What is the deal over on CIC? It seems like people get into a tissy over just about anything! There was even a long rant once because someone compared the canon of Batman with Wing Commander. It all got very "Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons TV Show" if you get what (and who) I mean.

BTW, I thought you were right on the "Kats" issue. I'm pretty sure I've seen "Carrier" spelt "Karrier" during a briefing animation, suggesting they do replace Cs with Ks from time to time when they want to specify something Kilrathi. But I won't bother pointing that out over there or I'll probably find myself banned too!

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Wandered into this thread randomly, but it has reaffirmed my belief in the utter mind-**** insanity of that WC CIC place. Seriously, I hate and love that place. I shouldn't care - never in my life played a WC game - but that place both annoys and amuses me so much... it's very much The Internet.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
 :lol:

Some of the WC forum discussions are a bit "car crash", in that you know you shouldn't keep looking but you just can't help it.

I guess these Internet-argumentative types have always existed, it just gives them an outlet for their social difficulties. It would probably be healthier if they dealt with it rather than just finding a place where they can be considered normal, though.

Kinda reminds me of a party I was at about eight years ago, before the Internet was ubiquitous for the UK public. It was a nice housewarming with a bunch of pretty trendy liberal types, totally unlike ol' Right-wing me. They were fine except for one misfit who was a full-on card carrying communist in the truest sense of the word. He spent the evening insulting everyone and talking about "the workers". Suffice it to say the guy actually lived on welfare and never intended to actually get a job. I'm guessing he's one of those Internet people right now, ranting while using his access that my taxes paid for. :)

On the positive side, I've noticed that many of the politest and most reasonable people out there are the ones building things or offering tech support advice; i.e. the productive people.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?

Yeah, that is one of the main reasons why I'm using the FSO engine.  Another reason is because it's the only way I'll be able to get certain things working properly, like when the Hornet tows the Highwayman.  Also, FSO is much easier to work with than WCSO and it can still do a host of things that WC can't.

Some of the WC forum discussions are a bit "car crash", in that you know you shouldn't keep looking but you just can't help it.

Agreed, they don't listen to your opinion if you have one, and they push you as hard as they can to make you agree with them.  You're forced to pretend that you have their opinion anyway, since if you didn't, you would get banned. (like starlord)

But I don't think this CIC-related discussion should carry on, or else someone might get mad.

BTW, @starlord: can I use this thread for showcasing screenshots of this campaign?

My opinion of CIC is its just another web forum on the internet that you should never use due to is obviously immature moderators.

You are asking me talon?  :D

I don't know about the others, but I would very much like to see your screeshots (whether cats is spelled with a C or K, As long as you don't spell it with a Q, then I might get mad.  :lol:)

And next time, don't ask, just do! We do respect your efforts for making that campaign.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Talon how the hell did this get you banned?

Well, it's actually the fact that I mentioned that "Kats" was referenced in the WCP material.  I wasn't too happy that they turned my Landreich thread at CIC into a discussion about the spelling of "Cats" and I could have sworn I saw it spelled with a "K" in one of the official games.

As long as you don't spell it with a Q, then I might get mad.  :lol:

:wakka:3

Anyways, here are the screenshots I showcased at CIC:

you gotta love that hornet. and if you wanna make it neutron based, then you must have your reasons. On the other hand this will result in quite a change of tactics to employ when at the helm.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
All right, here are some WIP shots of the new Andrew Carnegie model.  See if you can guess the design inspiration. ;7

Lars got it right. ;)



When I saw this, I thought, "Hey, this thing looks big and bulky, why not use it as Andrew Carnegie in my campaign?"

But I guess the front of it kinda looks like the SD Lucifer, because of its triangular shape.
