Anyways, I've went ahead and added more details to mine...

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
This one looks quite true to the original concept. I like it and I hope you keep it close to the original.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
I think I've decided to call this project "Wing Commander: Eon8" because False Colors sounds to me like WC in an Eon8-type situation.

The Eon8 site had a countdown timer on it (Don't worry, it's gone now), but nobody knew what it was for.  Some say that it was the countdown to the destruction of the internet...  In False Colors, the Civies didn't know about the situation on the frontier, and if they found out, it would be like falling into a black hole, and the entire human race would probably get wiped out easily.

Actually I'm not too sure if the description above is accurate...

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Well the situation in False Color isn't something I would discripe as an armageddon for the rest of humanity. Its a big problem for the Borderworlds and the Landreich but I don't think that even if the Kilrathi managed to get the damaged Dreadnough working again that Confed would let it roam freely and cut of its supply. Even the best warship can't work without supplys and the Kilrathi milita isn't in a shape to fight confed again at this point.
The only posibility would have been to use the sheer power of the Dreadnought to unite some other kilrathi system lords but even if Confeds intel is bad it surely would notice if their old enemy units again.
Beside that there was Melek who tried to work together with Confed. The posibility that he would inform Confed about the situation is quite likely.

That is at least as far as I would interpretate the situation from what I remember from the book.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Sorry about the long wait, but here is the new Andrew Carnegie model:



The model is not yet complete and the texture job hasn't even started.  I dropped the old one because it was a major contradiction to WingCanon™ (no offense @ LOAF) and I wanted to do this WC mod correctly.

And here is the Tender Sindri:



P.S. Disregard the filename of the above picture...

Any more details on the story?

Yeah, Finally thought of a good name for the project: Wing Commander Hostile Frontier.

I've decided that the player should be able to make a choice between watching the Karga refit or returning to Landreich space.  You can accept or decline, just like a SOC loop, but you will get different sets of missions. (e.g. Kilrathi fighter training)

I've scrapped my original plans for the first mission.

And I'm also trying to wax as much :v: content as I can.

I personally wish I could record a vid and post it up on YouTube, but some of the stuff I have is not final, or it will need some fine tuning.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Decided to delete my last post as it was just me venting. Having done so, I reckon it's best to get on with life.

Now what I'd really like to see is a screenie of the Karga.  :)

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
I reckon the blantkara heavy carrier is comprised in the SAGA mod, right?

If so, you will see the karga.

Also, talon, I've been through wc3 lately, and I've noticed that during briefs, sometimes a red rotating blueprint of kilrathi ships appear some examples being "light fighter" (darket obviously), dralthi, transport, tanker, and ... Kruiser   :lol:

Looks like the CIC should check twice before complaining about the way you spell kats.

Kruiser? Do you have a screenshot? I mean its Kreuzer in german...maybe they mixed things a bit up ^_^

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
No, no: I have the french version, but they never would have changed the artwork:

Try several early wc3 missions and you'll see for yourself (and it's certainly not german). No: I suspect Kruiser for kilrathi cruiser.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Starlord (and by extension Kev) are indeed right. It says Kruiser in the WC3 briefing vids. And we're safe to point that out here!  ;)

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Hey tolwyn: did you see the info I posted regarding forced alliance and his creator AJ redmer? As a wingnut, I think this'll interest you.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Hmm..  You're right...


But, as explained in the thread at the CIC, it still wouldn't give you a right to purposely misspell Cats.  Whatever, it's my decision, and I'm deciding not to screw up (in their POV anyway.)

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
of course it wouldn't.

I guess it's just a detail that might have eluded them but let's forget the matter anyway, since it won't get us anywhere.

Talon, I'll ask the same thing as tolwyn, did you see the message I got from AJ redmer? I think you might want to know what role an obscure game like "forced alliance: the glarious mandate" might have played in the WC franchise.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
About the AJ Redmer thing, I find it interesting that they were both working on a star wars game called X-wing commander and the project became two separate franchises

Update on the factory ship: It now has more dock ports, attachments, and engines, which should make it look a lot more like a flying factory.  Thanks to Dundradal from CIC for pointing me in the right direction.  I'm not banned anymore.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Updates for those who missed it but would still like to comment:
- Added more detail to the Andrew Carnegie model.
- I've figured out how to make shield icons for the fighters. (Long ago actually)
- The hornet now features debris and a squadron logo appearing beneath the cockpit.  Thanks to the new COLLADA importer in PCS2, the conversion process is much quicker and much less buggy.
