To help promote some of the great fan campaigns that are currently in work, eddieb is running a contest to determine the Flight Commander Mod of the Year. Ranger's Glory, a WC1 Remake, Perfect Plan, WC Affliction and Venom's FC simulator missions are on the ballot. Registered Crius.net posters can vote here. Flight Commander was inspired by Wing Commander Prophecy's Vision Engine and allows fans with just basic modding experience to get in and make their own games. The program is flexible and allows experienced programmers to create more elaborate missions as well. You can learn more at the FC website or find help from fellow fans at the project's Forums.
Today is one of the largest holidays in the US, and indications are that more people are traveling than ever this year. Poor weather is also affecting much of the country, so hopefully everyone stays safe. If you're stuck at home alone, feel free to drop by #Wingnut and talk about Pilgrims to your heart's content. For both those who do and don't celebrate today, some of the biggest electronic, media and gaming sales of the year are about to kick off. Hit the Discuss button below to share any particularly slick shopping deals you manage to score. The Deep Discount DVD Sale has been extended, so fans who missed out last week still have a few more hours to score cheap copies of the Wing Commander movie or any other DVDs.
