Nice Touches Going Into Gemini Gold Update ID

A few more improvements that will be appearing in the Gemini Gold 1.01 patch have been revealed. More planets will get swirling cloud patterns and mining bases will have improved textures and lighting. Some container objects will be better modeled, a few small bugs will be fixed and the landing procedures will be much improved. You can comment on the game or ask the development team questions here. A list of things you can contribute to future versions is also available.

While the development of our first patch is still in progress, I can reveal a few more details about it. The mining base now has blue windows and a lightmap. The agricultural and pleasure planets have clouds like New Detroit, and the old luxury/natural goods cargo container was replaced with a new version created by Zeog. We have also changed the docking process (which was press "d" or crash into an object) to the well known "now entering an automatic landing zone" from the original Privateer.

Ultima Online Reactivation & Eighth Age Beginning Update ID

Beginning today, former players of Origin's Ultima Online are being allowed back into the game for a limited time. The Homecoming Reactivation allows users with an expired account in good standing to play from September 27 to October 10 for free. The game client can be downloaded and old passwords and account information should be valid. Check out the directions here. The retail release of Mondain's Legacy has been replaced with an Eighth Age anniversary set. This new retail box will come with a rare blue soulstone, a free advanced character, atlas, six of the previous expansion packs and more. The set is expected to ship on October 18 and includes 45 days of Ultima Online service. You can order it at Amazon for only $16.99. It's a great deal for people who get hooked again during the current account reactivation.

Kilrathi Fleet Gets Large Scale LLOD Upgrades

A couple of monster models have made their way into the Last Line of Defense project. Using some newly discovered information, Deathsnake has scaled up his fearsome Rigakh cruiser. Fairly credible stats imply it's even larger than the Confederation class dreadnought! (2018-03-19)

Black Lance Transport Certified For Covert Cargo

After leading the charge with a pair of exotic Black Lance designs earlier this year, DefianceIndustries has circled back around and completed the Evansville class transport that we see in Wing Commander 4. It has a fairly sleek profile for a transport as well as oversized engines, which form a pretty effective combo. There's no better way to sneak clandestine cargo to out-of-the-way places!

Happy St. Patrick's Day From The Green Salthi

Confederation hull plating is well known for its green texture, and terran soldiers even occasionally sport a green tinted outfit, but it's a far less common color on the Kilrathi (aside from the kats that actually have green skin). We know the common brown color of Kilrathi ships comes from the hue of their local durasteel, but there's one major exception to this: the green Salthi - or Jalthi, rather. The Secret Missions for the Super Nintendo had to squeeze to fit everything on the cartridge, and one noteworthy cut was the elimination of the six-shooter Jalthi model. (2018-03-17)
