Dundradal reports that the WCPedia has hit a great milestone! At the last CIC Birthday party, the team working on the encyclopedia set a goal to double the number of entries by August 2011. They've just nailed that target, well ahead of schedule. Nobody is sitting back and taking a break however - there's lots more work to do and the team continues to strategize about what to work next. Head on over and lend a hand here!
At 4:28 pm EST on March 27, the goal of doubling WCPedia's size by August 10, 2011 was achieved when the Atomic Chisel article was uploaded and saved.
Farbourne is working on a useful chart that plots out the different mission branching in Wing Commander Standoff. Many of the coolest missions in the game are only available on the losing track, so this reference tool should help lead many fans to more fun and excitement. The graphic as pictured only shows relationships right now, but Farbourne is also documenting the specific requirements that determine how players win and lose particular missions. There's still room for this to be refined, so head on over to Crius.net to help provide feedback.
This is a great achievement for the project. In the last 7 months we've added 1,100 articles as well as hundreds of images. A big thanks goes to LOAF who turned himself into a Privateer 2 machine and uploaded a huge amount of information.
There are still 5 months until the CIC's birthday in August. Our current goal should be to complete all Priv2 articles in that remaining time. I'm confident we can complete it with time to spare.
If you haven't checked out the latest uploads to WCPedia be sure to take a look!
It's my attempt at making a high quality, full game mission tree for Standoff. It's not quite done yet. It should prove useful for anyone trying to play through the game and who wants to try to see every mission.
After playing through the game to make this tree, I HIGHLY recommend playing through the losing path missions. Several of the best and funnest missions in the games are on the losing paths. The losing path version of "Skinning Cats" is great, and "Backlash", "Rescue Run", "Flight of the Arrow", and "Armageddon" are probably four of my five favorite missions in the game ("First Encounters", on the winning path, is my other favorite).
Consider this still a draft, and feel free to leave feedback...
