Where does the time go? If you've been watching your calendars like we have, you know that we're now less than two months away from the CIC's 11th Birthday! Be sure to set aside Monday, August 10 for the annual online birthday party in #Wingnut. The fun begins at 7:00 pm Eastern US time (4:00 pm Pacific and 11:00 pm GMT). That time kicks off a 60 minute countdown to our actual anniversary moment.
The long-awaited conclusion to Wing Commander Standoff will also be released that night, and I expect some exciting games of Prophecy multiplayer, Armada online or Wing Commander Arena to get going with this critical mass of Wing Commander fans present in one place. First time visitors can drop by #Wingnut easily via our web interface. See you there!
Here's another 'big' document -- or, at the very least, it's chock full of charts. We've seen a lot of detail on specific simulator missions that didn't pan out... now here's their wrapper! This document is the interface proposal for the simulator menus which... ended up being significantly different in the finished game. I love the inclusion of the warbook right there, though (I always wondered why the Midway had a little ships guide touchscreen on the rec room wall).
These updates are thanks to John "Captain Johnny" Guentzel, who provided several CD image archives of material used by the Wing Commander Prophecy development team!
