Last week's preliminary Wing Commander makeover for Galactic Civilizations 2 has mostly come together, and an installation and help guide is now in the works for the conversion package. The retail game itself has recently gotten quite a bit of free publicity thanks to fallout from some forum drama. The company behind GalCiv2 seems to have a solid corporate philosophy and a good product on its hands, so hopefully this helps broaden the install base for the Wing Commander mod. With the basics beginning to get wrapped up, ColonelFireball has begun looking into adding familiar Wing Commander ships. He's managed to get Howard Day's Hornet model looking pretty good with Tolwyn's texture so far.
So what I try next to do is a mod for the ships. I had some problems with converting and including the models to the game, but was successful. Once you know how everything works, then it is EASY. It doesn't seem like much, but this was hell of a lot of work.
