    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    I'm back and your post was good timing @Skanks, lol. I did not intend to be away for this long and unfortunately have just been busy. Regardless, I was able to make some progress on the Blender sprite creation script I have been working on. Before I get to that, I owe some long overdue thanks...

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    Woah, woah, woah... hold up! You're telling me one of the Prophecy modders is making Wing Commander 1 sprites now?! Two can play that game! Here is Prophecy's F-106 Piranha rendered as Wing Commander 1 sized sprites (with an added bonus of increasing the total render views to 312). Oh man...

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    @Darkmatter In addition to what @Howard Day and @DefianceIndustries have done, there are some other models out there that could possibly be used. For instance @Klavs81 released a ton of fantastic ships models some years ago (https://www.wcnews.com/news/update/12832) and might provide another...

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    Hooray, it's time for an update! As many of you know, we've been fortunate to have @Howard Day around to create some beautiful sprite renders for us to enjoy and experiment with. In doing so, he tackled the first two major steps in the sprite creation process by designing a 3D model and then...

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    OK, I am back and have caught myself up on recent developments, including those by @UnnamedCharacter (awesome work!). One thing I want for this thread moving forward is to create a tutorial so other people know how to make these kind of modifications themselves. My hope is that we can work...

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    Hi all! I've been traveling so I've not had much chance to do much recently and will be unavailable until next week. I did quickly convert the Hornet but consider it a prototype as the scale is off and the thrusters aren't in the right place. But anyway, here are a few screenshots: The...

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    OK, I've converted both the Exeter and Tolmacs for Kilrathi Saga. Here are screenshots of the Exeter: And here are screenshots of the Tolmacs (I replaced the Tiger's Claw which is why it shows the Tiger's Claw on the VDU) : And I've attached the files for people to use for...

    OK, I've finished converting over the new Tiger's Claw sprites thanks to @Howard Day. Here you can see some screenshots of what it looks like in game: It really looks great! Also, in the second image you can see how the 07 is mirrored (which isn't a big deal). If you want to try...

    Sure, I'll do that now and let you know. Thanks! EDIT: OK, a resolution of 356x356 for the cruiser will work. Thanks!

    Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information

    Ah @Howard Day, thank you! You'll have to forgive me however because I goofed and was looking at the wrong sprite. This is actually the biggest sprite from the set: Sadly, due to my mistake, these are still slightly too big (sorry!). If you don't mind doing those renders again at 360x360...

    Hey all. Sorry for the delay but I finally had a moment to create a thread specifically for sprite enhancement and experimentation. You can find it here: Wing Commander Sprite Enhancement, Experimentation, and Information At the writing of this post, the first post in that thread is a WIP...

    Thanks to the recent work of @UnnamedCharacter on the WCToolbox and previous modders that came before him, it is now possible to enhance and experiment with the sprites of various Wing Commander games. Thus, this thread will serve as a source dedicated to this experimentation as well as...

    Adventures in Explorations: WC1 Edition

    @Howard Day, thank you for providing the new renders! It's been great to have high quality images to experiment with. I have completed the conversion of both new sets of images you have provided. I've tried to get screenshots so that people can compare the two results. First, here are the...
