opts were included in the Wing Commander Total Conversion, which, although
it never quite reached initial expectations, provided a multitude of new
opts to use in any type of crossover mission you could think up. Since it's
been released though, you can now download the three ships I did separately.
This ship was the
most advanced fighter at the end of the Terran-Kilrathi War. This
opt is modeled from the cutscene graphics of Wing Commander 3, and
replicates Colonel Christopher Blair's cloak equipped Excalibur,
which he flew on the mission to destroy the planet Kilrah.
This opt uses a form
of s-foil manipulation that allows it to visibly cloak when the
s-foils are closed. However, in order for this to work, the ship
must be placed in the B-Wing ship slot.
I am currently reworking
this opt to include a cockpit and exterior, and to fix several of
the texture and meshing bugs that were in the first version.
The hornet is a light fighter from
Wing Commander 1, best suited to simle patrol and escort duty.
This was actually my first fully textured opt, and now that I've
had more practice, I am redoing it. Check the Opt Progress page
for a peek.
The Scimitar was actually
my least favorite ship in WC1. But it takes on a new light in 3D.
It is well armored, however, the extra armor plating slows it down
This one is also being
redone, although I don't know quite how I'll do it yet. I do plan
to make the ship more rounded overall, and add more detail in the
cockpit and engines.
These downloads all contain .shp files
for use with MXVTED, as well as the opts themselves. If any bugs are found,
don't hesitate to notify me, as I haven't used these particular files in quite
a while. I may move to xmod format later on, but I have yet to figure out
all the specifics of making them.
