The stunning Scimitar model that Howard Day revealed last month got a good amount of feedback on the Forums. While he doesn't have any new renders for us at the moment, work is still progressing and Howard hopes to have the design wrapped up sometime next month. He also has a cool WC Pioneer update for us.
So I feel like I need to provide a quicky update here...And I have some interesting news! So on the Scimitar, I'm still working on it, but I'm neck deep in crunch time right now at work - with any luck, though, I should have pretty much the entire month of December off, and I should be able to easily wrap it up then. Not sure how much will get done between now and then, but I will try and get the landing gear started.
Now for the interesting news: I was out drinking with some guys from the office a week ago, and the subject of Wing Commander came up. I mentioned all the stuff Joel and I have been doing, and Marc Schaefgen (currently working with us here in Eugene, after flying up from Austin) expressed some interest in doing some sound work for the game...That's right, the original sound guy from WC1/2 and numerous other Origin games has an interest in this.
I was estatic. Now, obviously nothing's written in stone, and nothing has been agreed upon, but I thought this was cool enough to share. I showed him the Scimitar this morning, and he got all nostalgic.
And I'm sorta nerding out right now, you'll have to forgive me.
Anyhow, thanks for all the feedback guys, I'll try and do the old girl justice.
