    albumkickstarter_goodies25t.jpgAs promised, Wing Commander composer George Oldziey has extended his weekly series of blogs with a new topic on the effects of the coronavirus. In his new article, he reflects on the impact to the industry and expresses gratitude for being able to work on a variety of projects like his Wing Commander remasters from the safety of his private studio. Check out his new post here.

    My original training was as a performer (originally trumpet and now piano), and only much later in my life did I veer towards musical composition. I never abandoned my love of performing, which also gave me inspiration and motivation to compose music that I could perform myself...

    General: Resolved an issue that would cause the game to crash when playing Dabo mini-game. Resolved an issue that was preventing the Red Angel Suit from correctly unlocking in the Tailor upon claiming the Event Reward. Added an Account-Wide Costume Unlock for the Red Angel Suit to the Event Reclaim Store. If you completed the Season 20 House Divided Event before and did not receive this costume unlock, you may Reclaim this item for free to fix that error for all characters on your account. The Verity variant of the Odyssey Star Cruiser has had its left warp trail moved to its correct position. The T5 B'Rel Retrofit, Fleet B'Rel and T6 Kor Bird of Prey are now using the remastered B'Rel art. Resolved an issue in which the D7 and D7 Refit costume presets were not appearing in the tailor.

    This one's not quite a ship from Wing Commander Academy, but it may as well have been! We don't see this light fighter in the television show, so NinjaLA sketched up a concept and DefianceIndustries turned it into a toonscaped model. There's both a red team and green team livery in keeping with the Academy palette. Defiance isn't quite sure yet what he's going to do with all these beautiful Academy models, but he's got some ideas cooking...

    This one was a lot of fun. I was working with NinjaLA on a fictional WCA-ized Hornet might look like. The excellent concept art he cooked up is attached along with model renders I did. It was a fun experiment and I like the results.

    Wing Commander veteran Paul Hughes has posted a shot of some fabulous wall art he's had made. They're Photobox canvas prints designed to commemorate Starlancer, Elite and Privateer 2. The '90s space sims are based on the straight European box art while the Elite cover comes from the fancy Acornsoft release. Modern print-on-demand services make cool projects like these relatively easy, and the results are super sweet!

    Final home office canvases. Really chuffed how well they came out. Space games and I have a bit of a history. :D So many tales to tell... It was a fun project.

    We were lucky; the cover art and manuals were done in house by a member of the Dev team - Mr Paul Chapman. The Elite one is a Photoshop retouch of the artwork that I did, the other two come from the original hires artwork and were all printed on Canvas by Photobox.

    Loved Wing Commander (especially WC3) I was a tad star struck when
