10. Re: Fan Created Wing Commander Saga Nears Mar 17, 2012, 00:56 eunichron
You guys are clearly insane. FS was obviously the better series. I mean, how can you even begin to think that WC came close? Guffaw, at least FS was so good that Hollywood didn't feel the need to make a shitty movie about it starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Matthew Lillard.

I mean, look, FS was so much better than Wing Commander that they're using the modified FS2 engine to make a Wing Commander game. If that doesn't convince you I don't know what will.

Of course I'm only poking fun.
But seriously, Freespace > Wing Commander

Looks nice! While obviously not cutting edge by today's standards, the freespace engine still holds up well.
Ever since the source code for FS2's engine was released there have been a lot of updates to it. Some of the newer mods have full post-processing effect support and advanced lighting. Just search around Youtube for what the Blue Planet guys are working on, it looks almost as good as some current tech.
