Admiral Tolwyn et al,
I just finished Wing Commander Saga today and I have to say GREAT JOB ALL! I can't believe you guys stuck it out 10 years. It was worth it. I've written code so I know what it's like to spend hours debugging a piece of code and you're bashing your head against the wall and you hear Thrakath laughing at you while you're doing it! I never played the core of the WC series but I've been around long enough to remember it (36) and I loved the chance to fry some unwanted kitty cat!

Now to a question. I know someone else here mentioned making a sequel and he got turned down (don't blame you guys one bit). Now that the groundwork has been laid by WCS how hard would be be for others to take over? I was always tought in college to reuse old code in new projects. It saves time, and keeps Thrakath off your back (A lesson a lot of my classmates had trouble learning).

Thanks four your kindly words. :) I am sure the WCS members are happy if they read this.

The WCS Team is completely retired now, well deserved. We at WingCenter created our own team (WCS Deutsch Team) for the WCS german translation project. I also develop the WCS Plus project in this team. So we take over the work from the WCS original team. But "only" for a translation and for a little improved engine with some additions.

Tools: Setup ZIP Check & UnZip ...and more
HowTo's: Joystick: configure throttle and rudder ...and more
Projects: WCS+ ...and more

I noticed the work of your team, so another group of people has taken over already :) It's too bad we could not do a remake of the core WC series. I know the source code is out there but if I recall there are some wierd legal issues still tied to it.

The problem is not code. The problem is writing a new script, hiring actors to voice it, make ship models, script the missions, test and balance the missions and countless other work required. That takes forever and it was a miracle that it worked once without a budget. There's 0 chance that will ever work again for free.

Thanks for the kind words though :)
