There have been a lot of developments lately for eddieb's Flight Commander engine, the latest development being explosions. The enhancements as shown in the screenshot below are 3D shockwaves, fireballs, and ship debris. This will probably be tweaked a bit in future, but already looks good. The other developments relate to Iceblade's mod for FC, Ranger's Glory. First of all, Cyberion's Rapier II has been fully converted to FC's engine and the files for that can be downloaded here. Secondly, the Ranger's Glory website is now up and running complete with lots of details about the project. You can find the website here.
