Eddie Benowitz reports that Flight Commander, his space combat simulator in the style of Wing Commander, is close to release.
A new release of Flight Commander is coming soon.
Among the new features implemented are force feedback joystick support, 3d surround sound, and improved graphics and speed.
Screenshots, details on all the implemented new features, and a pre-release web site are up at flightcommander.solsector.net.
We don't see a shuttle in the original Wing Commander (though there is one in the introduction to Super Wing Commander - which is itself taken from Origin's Bioforge!), but here we get a chance to see what one assigned to the Tiger's Claw looks like. This craft appears twice: once as Admiral Bergstrom's yacht in "Chain of Command" and then as the ship which transports our heroes to shore leave on Oasis in "Recreation."
