    • Adm_Maverick's Papercraft Adventures started off with humble beginnings. We initially got to see some cool cardboard hobby ships, but his work grew quite a bit in 2018 to include reproducible miniature models and a tabletop game using these small ships.
    • Dark Sentinel's Art is well known as the best Nephilim showcase in the known universe. It's most prominent in the WCP/SO MUP, but that's not the only project his efforts have helped!
    • DefianceIndustries' Art is also synonymous with the high quality ships in the WCP/SO MUP, but that's just the beginning. His gorgeous ships

    Shout out to Origin’s 1993 “CD-ROM Edition” graphic. That’s how you know it’s a CD-ROM Edition!

    cd-rom_edition1t.jpgcd-rom_edition2t.jpgcd-rom_edition3t.jpgcd-rom_edition4t.jpgcd-rom_edition13t.jpgcd-rom_edition14t.jpgThey went with a much more subtle version from 94 to 95. Wings of Glory is so handsome!

    cd-rom_edition9t.jpgThey also had something called a CD>Hard Drive release. These didn’t have any CD-specific enhancements and instead just installed the disk version without all the swapping.

    Hadrian Augustus Duval has broadcast a message following the purge of isolationist group Nova Imperium:


    "Arissa Lavigny-Duval has revealed the true face of her regime – one based on brutality and terror. The callous execution of Imperator Mordanticus, in conjunction with thousands of Imperial citizens, shows her desperation to cling onto power at any cost."


    "Nova Imperium survives in the Paresa system, a single light in the darkness. We stand for an Empire that respects everyone, from slaves to senators. I truly hope that any who value honour and tradition will help keep our spark alive."


    "Our martyred leader will never be forgotten. In his honour, I have taken the title of Imperator Duval, until such time as the people choose me as their rightful emperor."


    "Memento Mordanticus!"

    Professor Katrien Rook announced:


    "Thanks to many hard-working traders, both Neomedical Industries and the Vandermeer Corporation received enormous quantities of advanced medicines, computer components and auto fabricators."


    "We are evaluating each company's ability to manufacture the nanomedicines, and will award the contract shortly."


    Pilots who made deliveries to Neomedical Industries can now collect their rewards from Piserchia Port in Alignak, while those who delivered to the Vandermeer Corporation can collect their rewards from Elion Dock in Kuma.

    Billionaire investor Lexi October has announced plans to save technology company Supratech from bankruptcy:


    "Although Supratech's Torc design proved to be impractical, I feel that a company with such imagination and expertise deserves another chance to succeed. So I have decided to fund a commodity drive to get Supratech back on its feet."


    "I have invited the People's Rakapila Progressive Party to organise shipments of Computer components, Auto-fabricators and Hardware diagnostic sensors, which will enable Supratech to resume its innovative work."


    Deliveries should be made to Stone Enterprise in the Rakapila system. To protect traders, the People's Rakapila Progressive Party has placed a kill order on all wanted ships in the system.


    The initiative begins on the 31st of January 3305 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end

    DefianceIndustries

    is back to modeling, and he's finished his long-awaited Kilrathi medium fighter. The Krant is a bit of an odd dog with its twin cockpits and unique styling. Everyone thinks of the Dralthi as a big bullseye in the sky, but I always thought the Krant made really good targets despite their heftier armor. Their name also works great

    I've had a half-finished Krant laying around forever, and I krant leave things in a half-finished state. So, here it is: the Vega sector's medium bomber and general target. Enjoy!
