A team of Star Wars fans is working on their own version of classic space combat sim X-Wing using the Unity Engine.
First of all, XWVM is a mod to the original Star Wars: X-Wing game from Lucas Arts and Totally Games by Larry Holland and Edward Kilham. So it’s not a new standalone game. The team is aiming at rebuilding the game engine with newer technologies that allow it to run and make use of the latest hardware and improvements in gaming hardware.
It is also worth nothing that this project will require the original Star Wars: X-Wing game, or have the GOG or Steam versions of X-Wing Special Edition (either the 1993 floppy, the 1994 CD, and/or 1998 Windows edition). Well, it would be hard to use any copyrighted material. All game resource files are loaded from the player’s copy of the original game, or are new additions from the team, where the original assets are somewhat inadequate.
