So begins the third game of CIC/agwc trivia! The rules are identical to the last game, but all scores have been reset to allow everyone a fresh start. The trivia has been running for over three years, and the last game had an impressive 153 competitors. Phillip Langdale scored highest in game 2, answering every question correct for 90 weeks. Peekaboo also played for all 90 weeks. Other trivia veterans can check their final game two scores here. Now, let the games begin... (remember to mail your answers to Chris Reid).
Welcome to Week 1 of the latest alt.games.wing-commander/CIC Trivia Game. We play each week. Usually two main questions and one bonus question are posted to alt.games.wing-commander and listed at the CIC each Monday. Please email answers to ChrisReid@wcnews.com or CReid1701@aol.com and do not post directly to the Newsgroup. Be sure to include a name you would like to be known as on the Scoreboard. Have your answers in before this coming Sunday (November 5, 2000) to ensure your answers are recorded. Answers submitted early may be returned and you may be able to fix incorrect answers, time permitting (the earlier the better). Main questions answered correctly are good for 5 points, bonuses good for 3. Everyone is invited to play.
Alexander Grober is working on an exciting new fan project... here's what he says about it!
New Questions for Week 1 (starting October 30, 2000):
Question 1: What year was the TCS Tiger's Claw commissioned?
Question 2: What year was the TCS Midway commissioned?
Bonus 1: What year was the FRLS Independence commissioned?
My name is Alexander Grober and I'm from Germany. I'm planning a new Wing Commander Project at the moment. It should be a rendered 3D-movie called "Wing Commander - The final conflict". But now, I'm still writing the storyline. What I can already say is, that this movie is playing after Wing Commander Prophecy !! But there should be a connection with the prophecy... The movie should be approx. 30min long. The problem is, that I won't be able to use people in this movie. So it properly would be a simple 3D spaceflight movie with sound.
There are a few things, where I might need help. Perhaps there are some people out there... who could help.
- I need more fully textured 3D-Models of Ships. I already downloaded the models of your WC3D-section, but I still need more. The problem is, that I use 3D Studio Max, and I can't use all of your WC3D-models, because there are only a few designed for 3D Studio Max.
- I need human-models and perhaps an Alien or a Kilrathi. 3DS-files would be nice (fully textured). If I don't find any human-models, the movie would be a little bit boring... - but 3D-animations in spacefight view are still much fun !!! :-)
So if there's anybody out there who could help me - it would be fine !!!!
Just wanted to tell you about the project. I send you two pics of the animated starting logo.
