Omega Wing is a Space Sim/Deathmatch Multiplayer mod for Half-Life heavily based on descent. Featuring full 360 degree movement and an assortment of weapons and ships, eventually there will be team based modes as well.

Now that the intro is out of the way..

I started working on Omega Wing a week ago, and progress has been very steady. I've released 6 Alpha's, the latest is available on the page.

It needs custom content, right now most of the models/sounds are hacked descent3 models. But theres a few new designs already on the way! I'll be updating this description when this changes.

So far the weapons/items completed are:
Super Lasers
Vulcan Cannon
Quad Lasers
Concussion Missiles
Homing Missiles
Smart Missiles
Afterburner Regulator

Remember, its still in alpha stage, and if you would like to lend a hand (i've done everything by myself so far) Let me know!

Alright, starting in the new year, either after FLFD is out, or after the next Household DEATH! Release, DD and I are going to Get back to work on a new version of Omega Wing, with the new cockpit, and some more maps.

I've got a lot of plans out for one more version of this before HL2 comes out.

The BIGGEST planned change imo, is that i'm going to totally re-write all the mouse and keyboard input to make it on-par with the joystick support that i personally can't even test at the moment (my flight stick died in like, june. :X )

So Stay tuned.

Well, since my P3 died i've barely worked on the mod. I've done a few things, but nothing spectacular. I'm still waiting on some models to be complete, and then i'll release 0.7

Sorry about the delay for you people that care.
All i need to put my new system (P4) together is a new motherboard/RAM, then i'll be kickin out the updates a lot quicker (way way way less time to compile, etc, and i'll be more motivated)

d +slideright

kp_leftarrow +turnleft
kp_rightarrow +turnright
kp_uparrow +pitchfoirward
kp_downarrow +pitchback
kp_home +bankleft

Just tried the 0.6 Alpha. Very nice work!

I think you might need to rethink movement though. A lot of people who play HL are used to the WASD type controls, so I encourage you to possibly adapt the control scheme around that. I had lots of trouble simply moving around for a while, and I'm not too sure if people will play a modification if the controls/perspective have too much of a learning curve.

Good luck in the future. Hope to see some big things with this mod. :)

I find it odd that the only people to compare it to something, compare it to forsaken. which i've NEVER played. Haven't any of you ever played descent 1, 2, or 3?

Without ever playing forsaken, i'll say that it's more like descent than forsaken. If anything forsaken copied descent, much like I have so far. teehee.

You should make it not like forsakin but more of your own type and with a twist of new school gaming, like anime perhaps, make it more like i dunno ummm robotech or something mixed with a anime blend like my idea you should add a gatling gun for more intresting gameplay and a multi-rocket launcher and maybe some music with aliittle no alot of eye candy and make it more futuristic battle star galactica with a feel of halo the banshee

to not cut you down but let you know from a fan "It gets old Quick" and i mean it with my loving heart for gaming, work hard add the effects you know the world of future gamers will enjoy.

your fan- Guilty Wound
