I am going to overhaul the site real soon, there WILL be a character based storyline in singleplayer mode for definite, I will use Quake and Unreal tournament models for the characters. I have already found a model i'm going to use as a retro monk. I need both a Kilrathi and a terran Marine. I'll put up a character page soon. I need a 3d artist to design some bars where you can meet people, i need to be able to add characters to them. Any mesh donations can be sent to Darkmage50@start.com.au

As you may have guessed from the title above, I have decided on the engine which will be used for Wing Commander Universe, HellcatV of the Vega Strike team, has granted me permission to use the Vega strike engine for the game. He pointed out the new engine's many good features, which include: Ship importer, ease of editing to make our changes, an already implemented jump point system which will make the whole navigation coding much easier. I have also recieved fully coded universe map data, which just needs to have a reader program made for it, once this is done all the intrasystem jump coding will be done! the next focus points will be planets, landing, and interfaces, I also need trading, and perhaps nav point systems added (Iam still talking with HellcatV about this).

I have posted new screenshots of Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and the Moon! I will continue to work on new renders for the game. I plan to have the renders implemented into the 3d engine. All credit for the "real" planets: Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and the Moon go to Robert 'Dark' Wild.

I have just received several e-mails from HellcatV, all the navigaton stuff can be implemented! most of the things this project will have in it CAN be done! He hasn't said if anything can't be done yet.
