What exactly is Wing Commander Saga Plus?
The first (and at the beginning the only) priority of WCS+ was to create a platform (engine) for our WCS German-Mod Project. For this I learned the basics of C++ after the WCS source code was published in November 2013. Then after I made all texts translatable, I became bolder and tried also to realize some of the ideas the pilots from WingCenter had after the WCS release. And this was also successful. A dream becomes reality: give WCS some changes and improvements. WCS+ is a slightly improved engine with some new features for players and modders and also a few bug fixes.
Luke was still using the saga fork as the base for WCS+ (although I know it would require a good deal more work)?
Ideally, in the end I'd really like to see multiplayer. And the SCP, imo, would probably be the easiest way to achieve that, as no-one I've seen knows how Saga broke it in the first place. I'm way too stingy with my free-time to do it myself, so I relegate myself to the position of bottom-feeder.
That's cool. Although I meant it would be more work to use the SCP engine, not WCS, and I agree with you on that point (I forgot to finish my thought above).
As far as MP goes, that's cool as well. I find it my duty anytime someone brings up saga to remind them about multi-player, and cockpits. Can you imagine how cool it would've been, to have multi-player, and cockpits?
