This was created when the source code was released for Freespace 2. In addition, content update packs have been developed which take advantage of the upgraded game engine. These packs include higher-poly models and higher resolution textures. The end result of this project is to create a graphically superior (and far more flexible) game engine, while still retaining all of the gameplay elements that made FreeSpace 2 successful.

Check out the HLP release post: here for several other download mirrors, along with the recommended way of downloading and installing Wings of Dawn through Knossos. A very handy launcher which allows you easy access to a whole host of other Freespace 2 mods (though, unlike WoD, FS2 installation will be required for them)

Of course you can also download the new release through the moddb download page. Installation instructions are included on the page.

In case this is the first time you're seeing Wings of Dawn and wonder what it is about. A video speaks louder than words and images. So here's the trailer from the last article:

And a video that shows what kind of actual gameplay you can expect:

Hope you enjoy playing Wings of Dawn!

Yes, Blue Planet has the "The Blade Itself" campaign where you are flying a capital ship. Dimensional Eclipse has also a capship flying mission. Aswell there is Blue Planet: Battle Captains which is a capship campaign.

I can't get this to work. I can load into the game menus but when launching the ship I have tons of errors. I think I installed it incorrectly or something. I have FS Open installed. I really want to get this running.
Any advice please?

Thank you!

I love this game and I like Freespace SCP. Wish there was a mod where you would be inside one of those big ships but only allowed in the flight hanger. Until the alarm goes off then you will be ordered to your fighter or Bomber. Something that would give you even more of the feel of being a response team pilot.

I don't know just a idea of a new mod.

Thats basically the gist of the Eternal Silence mod for Half Life 2, but the space combat in their's isn't anywhere near as fantastic as in FS2. Still, its an interesting concept to fly into an enemy ships hanger, jump out, have a fire fight with their pilots, run through their ship blowing stuff up, and getting back to your ship before you're killed in the explosion. Worth checking out, its been awhile since I've tried it so it very well may have been improved.

A la Star Ixiom? I doubt it can be done, but that doesn't mean you can't use cutscenes showing pilots moving to their combat spacecraft.
