    AircPirateNinsei

    has flown his

    Hornet

    model for the first time. Total duration aloft was just under ten seconds, but it really zooms. And even this brief flight provides valuable information. He's now in the process of remaking the craft about 25% larger in order to give it a bigger battery and more effective control surfaces. It's all very cool, and he's a very talented model maker!

    Here a short video of the maiden crash.

    The Hornet flies, but it needs more thrust and larger surfaces for the elevons. To fit a bigger battery (4s) in the small nose I will increase the wingspan from 800mm (31.5 in) to 1000mm (39.37 in).

    The Hornet with 1000mm wingspan is almost finished. The lower part of the fuselage is still missing. A maximum of one 8" propeller fits. As motor I will try a RCTimer/DYS BC2830/8 1300KV (Max Power: 275W) with a 4s battery. Because of the larger area of the elevons I use two

    • Fixed frame rate dependant issues with black holes & tweaked their strength
    • Fixed that the health of the player's drones could go above 100%, and that they sometimes weren't spawning again when loading a savegame
    • Fixed several issues where loot containers were inaccessible
    • Fixed that rotating the ship in the color selection screen would also change the color
    • Fixed that in hardcore mode, perks would stay unlocked after death
    • Make sure Okkar Gunships don't flee outside of level area
    • Fixed localization issues of some ship wreck logbooks

    Adm_Maverick

    has done quite a bit of work with his WC

    tabletop game

    . One focus has been the creation of quite a few new ship cards. Each one has a snappy header graphic, and he's created numerous variants to add additional flavor. A neat focus will be the interoperability of ships from different eras without the artificial constraints that each game's specific stat ranges bring. He's working on normalizing the specs now so there's a reasonable comparison of each craft regardless of when we see them in the games. You can see this detail and help provide feedback at the CIC Forums

    here

    One of the things I want to do with this game is to have a 'complete universe', by that I mean while it can have expansions that introduce new figthers and new group, it won't get new rules to segment it. Wing Commander 1 figthers should be able to operate in the same system as Wing Commander Prophecy

    The

    Eternall Newbie

    has made a quirky retrospective video about Wing Commander 1. The author goes through the game's setting and physical box contents and highlights what made it so great at the time. Aside from some wonky input controls issues, he says it still holds up pretty well!

    Join me as I look back at the granddaddy of all space combat sims, the game that launched a genre, Wing Commander 1.

    The mysterious disappearance of actor Consuela Knight and the crew of her yacht has affected confidence in commercial space travel.


    Independent newsfeed The Sovereign reported:


    "Consuela Knight's empty ship pulling into port has caused unease in consumer markets. Rumours of abductions and disintegrations while in hyperspace have negatively impacted many businesses."


    "Ship manufacturer Saud Kruger has said that sales of customised luxury yachts, such as Ms Knight's, have plummeted. Cruise bookings with Astrogator Tours are being cancelled, while commercial operators have reported a drop in passenger numbers."


    "Plans are underway for a memorial service to honour Consuela Knight's career. But her real legacy is the fear that her fate could befall any interstellar traveller."

    A request for mined materials from the Omega Mining Corporation has concluded.


    Independent pilots delivered large quantities of Indite, Gallite, Praseodymium and Cobalt which will be used to build an Orbis starport in the Stuemeae FG-Y d7561 system. The starport will serve as a centre for scientific research, gathering data on the supermassive black hole at the galaxy's centre.


    Erimus Kamzel, the Distant Worlds project leader, commented:


    "It is with great pride that we announce the successful conclusion to this resource-extraction initiative. The fleet will now continue its journey, and is scheduled to reach the galactic core in several weeks' time."


    Contributors to the campaign can now collect their rewards from Omega Mining Operation in the Omega Sector VE-Q b5-15 system.
