    flying off the map

    Ironduke, I wanted to propose a change to the rules on fighters flying off the edge of the map. Right now, if your fighter careens off the edge of the map, you take a loss of experience points and you are out of the dogfight. Now, maybe that's preferable as a retreat action, just point at...

    happily bleary eyed in the morning

    Righteous Fire economy model

    Just a random thought here, gang.... One of the things I found vaguely annoying in Righteous Fire was the screwed up economic model. Let me explain what I mean by that with a comparison to WC:Priv. I start at Helen, I buy luxury foods at 22cr per unit. I fly to Hector, I sell them at...

    WC1 Theme stuck in my head

    I was just sitting at my desk alternating between some work and surfing wikipedia (that website is like crack, man) I suddenly realized I was (sotto voce) humming and whistling the WC1 (SNES) theme music! ~~~ It's now been running in my head for 20 minutes...and I'm ok with that! :cool:

    Need help with XWA - Wing Com. TC and Mission Ed

    Anyone out there ever tried using the AlliED mission editor with the WCTC beta ships? They definitely have issues (hell, I just ran a skirmish and watched a fralthra reduce 3 gilgamesh destroyers, a bengal class carrier, and several fighters to dust motes while never getting below 50% hull...
