View Full Version : Wing Commander Saga
Hi just a heads up as there seems to be a few space sim fans here, the Wing Commander Saga mod is going to be released tomorrow. The mod uses the Freespace 2 source so you don't need the original game for the mod.

Got a bookmark to WCSaga since someone mentioned it here during the OFP days, man it was a long wait. Kudos to the team, that trailer looks very polished & professional!
Can´t wait to play ... somewhere on their page i read it also has MP :yay:

That looks interesting. I would love to play a nice space sim again.

I played three turtorial missions so far (Prologue to the story) and I really like it. The characters are cool, the ships are cool and the story seems to be cool too. You can really see that the people behind this were really dedicated fans of the series. Everything really well made and they give this masterpiece out for free, they won´t even accept donations. The graphics are a little bit outdated in some places but you don´t really notice it.
Maybe I´ll make a gameplay Video of this.

As it's based on the FS2 source, is there a mission editor with it like there is with FS2 ?

I really don´t know, but the devs will keep adding features I think. The MP is still missing.
BTW it plays fine with Mouse+keyboard

I downloaded from Gamershell, installed and on final completion to "ok" the completed install my firewall popped up with "Detected as P2P Worm" so I auto clicked deny for obvious reasons, wondered if anyone else has any detection of this or false positives?
Naturally denying fails the install, so I will hang on for a bit before I try anything more & maybe search around.
For anyone else:
False Positive: Some anti-virus (most notably ESET NOD32) may report a false positive and detect wcsaga_sse2.exe as a virus/worm. Tell your anti-virus to omit this warning.
Although in my mind I instantly then think "What is it that your asking me to let through" .... :)

Well this is definately a false positive, you can start enjoying your game.
I made some screens showcasing a simple Mission.
The very well done and animated main menu
Our task is to fly escort for two Attack Bombers
Departure from the TCS Hermes
The front end of the TCS Hermes
A Battleship that belongs to the carrier group. Notice how big it is, the distance to it is over 10km
On the way to pick up the bombers
Some enemy fighters in search for trouble
Threatening me didn´t save him from taking damage
Blown to pieces
Continuing our mission
The space station where we make contact with the bombers
Look at the size of that thing, i´m still 20km away
13km away, its huge.
On the way to deliver some torpedos
Enemys trying to intercept us
doesn´t go well for them
We lost one of the bombers, the other is going for an attack run to blow up the enemy corvettes
Damn, his torpedo was shoot down before he could hit.
The corvette kills the bomber, now we have to deal with them.
We manage to destroy the first one
and the second one

very well done project for community work, 10 years of development ... i hope everyone involved gets more than satisfaction back ...
It's amazing how much these guys have kept to the spirit of the original games from the breifings to the in-game dialogue, I think the gameplay's helped by the use of the Freespace engine too.

You pathetic descendant of monkeys!
Ah, that takes me back. *wipes tear* :)

Played the original and first expansion quite a lot and was initially pretty interested in this but find I can no longer get enthused by single-player gaming, it's what we did before the Internet.
I made it!
Story: Pretty good
Characters and Dialogue: Awesome
I feel sad that its over...
Last Battle was a Bloodbath, took down over 200 enemys. Serious awesomeness!
