A while back I decided to create a couple fan films for the X-Wing/Tie Fighter games. One with rebel protagonists, one with imperial protagonists. Hope you guys enjoy. Newtek's Lightwave was used for the 3D assets.

I made all of the models myself actually.

The Calamari is based on the XvT MC40 and the Mod Corvette is based on a mix of the versions throughout the games.

If anyone is interesting in participating in the next short head on over to my discord and we can work things out. I'm always looking for voice actors, modelers, animators, composers, balloon animal specialists, or anyone who is just curious. The next project slated is themed after Battletech/Mechwarrior, but I will certainly be doing another Star Wars themed short soon.

bonus:

I've abandoned this concept for the time being but in the past I also have done a few informative shorts about the craft of the XW series. So far I have only completed videos for the X-Wing, Transport, and Imperial Gunboat.

Well done! I hope to se more if these videos in the near future!
I have a request: for your videos you have a great variety of beautiful starfields. I'm planning to introduce more backdrop images to be used as optional starfield for the XWA gameplay. Please, could you post me some pictures than can be used as spherical starfield, or could you tell me where to find them? Thanks!!!

You might get some good results with Spacescape. :)

I actually procedurally generate all of the starfields in these videos. I can still upload some images of them for you if you so desire.

I really liked the cockpit of the Star Wing gunboat in Star Wars: Corvette Attack.
Simple and old fashion style, I mean XvT style, but with sensors displaying the actual form of the nearby crafts.
Craft dimension displayed on sensors also depends on the distance, so the gunboat on the left is bigger than the corvettes.

Great job!
