On March 5, 2013, Wing Commander: New Horizon MUSH was shut down due to lack of activity. Thanks to the staff and players for your support. We had a good run and created some amazing memories. Keep in touch on the Facebook page for the game, which will be preserved.
The entire game's codebase and database (minus player information) has been open-sourced and released to the public, and the game itself is back up to help support the code at wcmush.com 2199!
An ESNN representative was present this morning at a press conference called by Simply Results CEO Diana Cabrera. Cabrera addressed the Inferno bomb situation that many consider to have been precipitated by her organization, stating, "The SR Sphinx, formerly known as the KIS Fang of Sivar, has been restored to full working capacity. There was no indication at any point during the process that a hidden signal would be triggered elsewhere, particularly not in another system of space entirely. Certainly, had we come across such knowledge, the project would have been placed on hold until we could remove the threat."
While the questions were of a decidedly mixed variety, ranging from somewhat deranged accusations leveled by a Harvey Yendor, purporting to represent the Planets-With-Flame-Names Alliance to questions of whether Diana's Kilrathi alleged lairmate may have been involved in the conspiracy. But it was the final questions that proved the most hard-hitting, as a former Inferno resident played at the heart-strings of all present when he reminded Ms. Cabrera of the human impact to those at the lowest levels of society. Cabrera's promises to "work on making things better" will be no doubt taken to heart by the thousands displaced, and hopefully will provide some hope in these trying times.
