First Kilrah, then Sirius1... now they're invading Nexus! Exarch has modeled a Nephilim Barracuda-class corvette for the game... and it went over so well that he's working on a multiplayer total conversion! Look closely, it's the original model from Wing Commander Prophecy... with some spiffy new textures -- it really looks like it's straight out of an FMV sequence! You can also see a Terran Confederation TB-81 Shrike class Torpedo Bomber that's undergoing the same process! Spectacular.
1 - also, K'sk'taq, Hhallas and Valgard.
Wonder what's going on with Privateer: The Reckoning? Well, Bob McDob was kind enough to send us a status report! The word is good: a lot of progress has been made turning Freelancer into Privateer... and now they need playtesters! Do you love Freelancer? Will they have to pry your dead carcass off of the mouse? Then I 'Reckon you should give them a hand!
After a long hiatus due to hardware problems, and a slight diversion to the WCFL project, the Privateer: The Reckoning mod for Freelancer is back on. Most of the work has been completed, with code tightened up and new features added. All that's left now is the work of playtesting the thing till the bugs are dead, dead, dead. That's where you come in. We need beta testers to inform us exactly where the problems are in the mod, since one person with a day job programming the mod in his spare time can't possibly find them all. If you've played Reckoning before, you'll find new ships (the Bearcat, Panther and Hades) and weapons (Stormfire and Dragonfly). If you haven't, give it a try!
If you're interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. With work shifting to the Epsilon Sector. mod, this will very likely be the among the final versions of Reckoning set in Gemini. Now may be your last chance to be part of the greatest Wing Commander Privateer Total Conversion for Freelancer ever!
