The XWA Upgrade is a massive mod made from fans for fans. We started something like 20 years ago planning to only upgrade the ship models to add some much needed details into them. Over the many years we have discovered many things that we can do to upgrade not only the ship models however but the actual game engine as well. These days there is barely any part of the game untouched. There are higher texture resoutions, more ships with more options to choose from. More flightgroup colors, VR support, fully dynamic and interactive cockpits and so much more.
There is so much we are still learning about the engine and we are trying to push it as far as we can. Sure, we might never be done, we might never get to that last model to be changed, but boy are we having a lot of fun on the way.

We sure hope you will join us on this ride and rediscover this old but sill really great game.

Being a true newbie to this particular field in the essence of the word, i am learning along the way. My first dxf, my first textures, my first opt, truely a combined experience :o). I'm not new to the 2d and 3d world though, since i have made numerous 'graphical' websites (including a couple of paying ones), and i've had a bit of AutoCAD experience in university. I came in contact with the XWAU through Decoy, a guy i met some time ago while starting to design Flash movies (after i saw one of his awesome creations ;) So lots of cheers to him, who's footsteps i seem to follow once again...
