Has it really been 25 years already? Posted by Forceflow
Okay, so I must admit that date kinda slipped below our radar, so thanks @unmarcz for pointing it out. On the 23rd of March 1999 X-Wing Alliance was released. Which, looking at my calendar, was now 25 years (plus a few days... :ops: ago)

I know there hasn't been much communication from us lately, but that's not to say we aren't keeping busy. In fact we are hard at work, creating and improving and testing loads and loads of things to get the next big patch out. And unfortunately the next patch is getting bigger and bigger all the time. @Ace Antilles has been super busy going over pretty much all existing OPTs, making sure the material files are up-to-date and correct, smoothing the models for better looks and making tons of other tweaks as well.

Some existing models have gotten some pretty substantial upgrades, while yet others have been completely redone plus a few new ones are in the works as well. @blue_max and @JeremyaFr have been busy doing their magic enhancing overall visual fidelity and gameplay features and a complete rework of a as of yet fairly untouched area of the game is also being done right now.

Some of the new features have been teased before and we don't want to spoil too much, but @Vince T agreed to give you one sneak-peak at two of the newest additions that will hopefully be included in the next patch once it's ready:

The next patch is going to be huge, not only in content but there's also a lot of other stuff that should make everything a lot better going forward.


Head over to the forum to discuss!
