Ha, I used to visit this site back in the day when the Star Wars Flight sims were all the rage. Blues News used to post when the X-Wing Alliance upgrade project would release each update.
I'm saddened to this day there has not been any new Star Wars flight sims for PC - I played X-Wing, TIE Fighter, and X-Wing Alliance. I liked all of them, but TIE Fighter was my favorite, because it dared to allow you to play a character from the perspective of an Imperial, and it was damn good. That same pilot you played as even made an appearance in the Extended Universe books. X-Wing Alliance was also my first modding project ever for a PC game - I was the individual involved with first converting TIE Fighter to the XWA engine. I had worked on it with some guy from Australia, I think, to convert the audio while I worked on the missions. I never finished it (Lots of bugs).
I never released it, and eventually remembered I had all the work sitting on a hard drive I never used anymore, after getting interested in PC building. I couldn't remember why I had saved it and then it clicked, was able to run the old IDE HD on my computer, copy the TIE Fighter conversion project off of it and released it 'as is' to the XWA community. Other modders had been attempting a TC too, so they used what complete stuff there was, adapted it, and released a full fledged TC Project.
I'm not sure who to blame for there being no amazing new SW Flight Sim in this day in age, with all the new tech that is available - LucasArts head exec's or publishers thinking SW Space Sim wouldn't sell anymore.
