As promised, I've opend a new screenshot thread.

But you can also check the 'old' one. The last shots are still as up-tp-date as this shot. ;)

[size=+2]NOTE: Please do not ask for new screenshots. When we have something to show off, we will, but not before.[/size][/b]

Old screenshot thread (http://www.game-warden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35)

And the first shot is kinda... a mystery picture, as you have no chance of guessing what this is for. ;)

Amazing!

But The arwing doesn't really look "arwing-y" from the back,

Which one will you be using?
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: DaBrain on January 28, 2007, 04:25:00 PM
All of them. Except for the SF:Adventures and Command Arwings.
Nobody has modeled them so far...
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Evil Duck on January 28, 2007, 04:33:11 PM
Cool!

Can you unlock these arwings? :naughty:

My favourite is probably the SF64 arwing and Assault!:nod:

If you've played FS2 you'll have noticed that as you progress new ships are unlocked. It's up to the team whether they want to do it in the game or not but it's definitely possible.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: takashi on January 28, 2007, 07:46:38 PM
judging by the trailer, ships are recived in this order:

sf64

SNES

assault

cornerian

catspaw

-anything else-

ps: nice to know the basic concept i mentioed go turned into a mode. corridor mode!

Post by: Mav on January 28, 2007, 08:23:13 PM
Hmm... dunno. I only know the SNES game. Judging from that, the pic could either be a starting sequence, or the entering of the location of some boss (Andross in the SNES game) .

And to me that ship looks perfectly like an SNES Arwing - not that I knew the others...
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: strike911 on January 28, 2007, 08:40:30 PM
It looks exactly like the SNES concept Arwings, just keep in mind that the camera in this shot is pointing down over it a little.

I also was confused with the SF Arwing. I never bothered asking, though. There's a noticeable difference between the designs, but it's great this way. :) G-Diffusers still look weird in-game, though.

Also, the Command Arwing is the same as the Assault Arwing. Unless you mean the Arwing II.

Unguessable? Darn... I thought it was the Great Fox's gateway for the Arwings. :(


@DaBrain: Maybe we should clean out the posts from the Old Thread and just leave the pictures there. Right now, it's very inconvenient to read the whole thread looking for the pictures. :(
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: takashi on January 29, 2007, 01:00:34 AM
the command arwing is a 64 arwing that got a fancyer paintjob and new wings.

Post by: Syphe D. Mar on January 29, 2007, 01:57:32 AM
Um... what? Command is the one for the DS.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Blink on January 29, 2007, 02:06:20 AM
He's saying that the most similar Arwing to Command's is the one from SF64. I would say Adventures myself, since it's quite smooth, but the pointy traingle g-diffusers really make it look a lot like the 64 arwings.

Glad to see a new pic DB! Maybe we should have two topics though? Or host a gallery on Flickr of all the currently released SoL pictures so that finding them isn't an issue?

(I personally think that's a launch tunnel btw. Straight outta the SNES game. SCRAMBLE!)

Post by: takashi on January 29, 2007, 03:23:30 AM
its called the arwing 2 (even though its more of a degrade). for a screenie http://www.nintendo.com. check the game info for a pic or two. that or gamespot.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Syphe D. Mar on January 29, 2007, 04:20:40 AM
Oh... that. :| That's not the Arwing. Peppy and James use the Arwing (I'm trusting Arwing Landing for info about James). I stated that in my previous post.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Fox McCloud on January 29, 2007, 05:25:27 AM
Hmm, interesting shot, DaBrain; it almost looks like the opening sequence of the original Star Fox when all the ships are being launched out of the Cornerian HQ.

Of course, it could also be an Arwing taking off from the Great Fox, or it could simply  be showing off the fact that "on-rail" missions can be simulated. *shrugs* time will tell, that is for sure.

th assault arwing is not the arwing. its a wolfen 2 with its wings turned straight up fused with a f-16.

er... you have two fighters with a similar cockpit, a pair of wings and four engines, thats about all they got in common.  Its like comparing a  Incom T65 and a Starfury because they have four wings in the shape of an X.  And i fail to see how a F-16 Falcon in any of its Blocks looks like an ArWing
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: takashi on January 30, 2007, 04:07:10 AM
i see a wolfen 2 remake caused by lazy modeling on namcos part. so i'll just say that namco messed up by making one desing close to the other and end this "original versus new" argument once and for all.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Syphe D. Mar on January 30, 2007, 10:23:04 PM
Um... so what does this have to do with Command's Arwing NOT being similar to the Assault one?

And what do you mean the Assault Arwing is not the Arwing? It's the only "true" Arwing in Command.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: takashi on January 31, 2007, 01:45:44 AM
command was kinda..."non nintendo". it was developed b Qgames with a liscence from nintendo. the so called "true arwing" argument is here beause the real arwings were sold off to other elite pilots and even mass produced.

of course, we could always wait for a sequel by nintendo to confirm if the true arwing sees gameplay once again.

The only true Star Fox game developed by Nintendo is, was, and forever may be Star Fox 64. :blah:

Um... since when? Command uses the Assault Arwing. Fox uses the Arwing II, another aircraft altogether. The Assault Arwing is a modified and refit of the Star Fox 64 Arwing, also known as THE Arwing. The Arwing II is a new model.

After failing to deliver us a Star Fox games developed by Nintendo three times, I highly doubt the next will be theirs. Only time will tell...

Wow, DaBrain, you have stunned me, once again--I really like the detail of the SNES Arwing in picture 1.

also, now that you've revealed a bit of the "blurred" portion of some former pictures, I have a question: are the building destructable?

Lastly, I just wanted to make sure of this, but...this is Corneria City, correct?
Title: Screenshot thread!

just that you will not be constrained to the X and +Y axis. (ask water or some other advice giiver about the difference between things like -Y and +y)

in SoL (thankies to the freespace engine for the following functions)

you will be able to bank more than temporarily to the side (like tiltinng till' your upside-down), you can actualy have true "all range", be able to carry multiple lasers (if the devs want you to), and lots of other cool things (missles! smart enemies balanced with your ship! the ability to leave a mission with ALT+J, targetting controls!). play freespace 2 to see for yourself.

http://FSOinstaller.com/

(all feutures are subject to change incase the devs want it to be an "authentic" starfox game, which, in my opinion, would be kinda a let down)

uh oh... now starslayers gonna yell at me for predicting the devs actions.

Work-in-progress picture only. I had to recreate the "StarFox" font. Well, at least I have it in a pretty high-res version now. ;)

Wow! Once again, awesome work, DaBrain! I really like how you roughed up the surface and made it look like chunks of metal were taken out of the ship.

I'm glad you payed attention to that detail-after all, the Star Fox team isn't really, how should we say, "wealthy", therefore, they're not going to have funds to keep it in tip-top condition.

Post by: DaBrain on February 24, 2007, 04:53:24 PM
In the picture, the model is using a Shader that supports normal mapping. That's where the dents and some additional details come from.

FS2 still doesn't support that (yet), so it will look less rough and detailed in the game engine.

I just noticed something...

In the screenshot with the SNES Arwing, you can see the guns and engine bar, but not the shield. I'm assuming it's gone, but... Can we limit the engine so that it cannot be 0 for a long period of time? G-Diffusers technically (canonically) cannot brake in midair long. This is supposedly the direct opposite of the after burner, but is it possible to make the brake (Backspace by default on FSO) waste fuel/energy?
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Unknown Target on March 03, 2007, 05:11:47 AM
Why would stopping waste energy...?
And they did that "canonly" because they couldn't make you stop in a linear on-rails shooter.  Why on Earth shouldn't you be able to stop moving forward in space? Although granted, in-atmosphere that would make sense, but seriously - not being able to stop in space?
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Axem on March 03, 2007, 05:16:59 AM
That's how it worked in Star Fox. Speeding up or slowing down took the engine power for some reason.

Depending on how we work things out, I'd like to have a minimum speed just in atmospheric missions. Arwings aren't VTOL after all. (Yes the X-03 can do that, but that's special)
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: takashi on March 03, 2007, 05:31:26 AM
so why no shields though? if i do recall. arwings have shield sAND hull. even though for the sake of balance in an on rails shooter, they made you blow up with your shields gone. but this isnt on rails, now is it? its a mod where enemys are as powerfull as you. and bosses are more powerfull still. as dabrain said, its balanced. so why no shields? does the "surface shields" flag not provide shield management or what?
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Unknown Target on March 03, 2007, 05:35:15 AM
I've never known StarFox to have visible shields whatsoever. In fact I distinctly remember me getting shot and my craft rocking/the wings obviously coming off when heavily damaged. I never saw any sort of shield hit effect.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Axem on March 03, 2007, 05:44:45 AM
In the games, the indicator might've said Shield, but it acted like Hull does in FreeSpace. Its the last line of defense for your life, and doesn't regenerate unless under certain conditions.

Just FYI with "If things will be like Star Fox or Freespace"... SoL will not be Star Fox in FreeSpace, but it won't be old school totally on rails Star Fox either. It'll be somewhere in the middle, so compromises will be made on both sides of the gameplay argument.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: takashi on March 03, 2007, 06:43:27 PM
so....

enemy balancing (not present in starfox.)
shield system? (not starfox, uncomfirmed)
more than 4 weapons (not starfox)
more than one ship(not starfox, except for command)
freedom of flight (not starfox)
insta-roll (not freespace)
planetary missions (not freespace)
mid-mission upgrades (not freespace,uncomfirmed)
solar system map instead of node map (not freespace)
usable launch hangars (not freespace)


agreed, it is a balance between two perfect ends of the flight game spectrum.

On rail missions only? I think not. Even the All-Range Mode doesn't allow you to fully stop. My hypothesis for this is because it would make turning TOO easy and risky (why chase down a boss ship when you can just stay still and fire 'til there's nothing left?). Look at a Wolfen and then an Arwing. In Assault, Arwings have better turning but weaker shots. Wolfens, being unable to make narrow turns, can only slow down when braking and are still faster. Also, the G-diffusers and Gravity Blades supposedly forces the ships to move no matter what, unless braking (which wastes energy). Turning off the G-diffusers and Gravity Blades is supposed to mean death quicker than when turned on.

Except if you've played Assault, during on-rails and all range mode stages the Arwing can't stop, for reasons already stated... but in multiplayer it CAN.

So... yeah.

OH... that. I stated that already. I meant stop-stop where stopping does not waste energy, which it does because of the G-Diffusers. Also, braking can stop in single player as well with the same applications. SO... both single and multiplayer CANNOT stop in midair without wasting energy.:yes:

If you would actually look on HLP, takashi, you'd see that the B5 mod is already there. Also, he doesn't NEED to get FSO to run the B5 mod, because AFAIK, it's standalone. MegaNova, don't listen to any advice takashi gives, 99% of the time he's wrong. You can find it here: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,43703.0.html (and yes, all of the releases are mirrored).

As for you takashi, I will once again repeat something that has been said to you many times: DO NOT GIVE ADVICE UNTIL YOU HAVE MORE KNOWLEDGE OF THE ENGINE. I know certain people are annoyed enough at having to run around behind you correcting what you say so that people don't potentially waste their time/screw up their installs.

EDIT: And this line of discussion is off-topic. takashi, you have been proved wrong, do not reply to continue the discussion. MegaNova, if you need help getting the B5 mod, please post over there on HLP in that forum I linked you, or here on GW in the Freespace section. Thank you, cheers! :)

Post by: Chrono Reaper on March 31, 2007, 04:49:14 AM
:eek2: This gives me an idea for you to add a mission where Star Fox Team has to once again save the Great Fox from a barrage of enemy missiles to prevent it from being destroyed, Just like in Star Fox  Assault and Star Fox 64.

FreeSpace 2 has escort and the "protect-your-base" missions that plays similarly to the Sector Z mission.

By the way, did the color problem for the "Com. Link" fix yet or is it impossible to?

Title: Just A Suggestion Da Brain...
Post by: Chrono Reaper on April 02, 2007, 06:18:16 AM
Even though this scene has appeared millions of times throughout the Star Fox Games... I Bet you my entire life savings that alot of people would like to have another "Save The Great Fox" Mission again. It doesn't have to be at sector Z but somewhere...

Reason: It is a tradition that all SF players enjoy playing, not to  mention most memorable. It also gives the person the feeling that they are truly a star fox member showing their pride  by saving the day once again from the evil Venomians...if that's what these enemies are going to be in this game of course.

But most importantly its something that SF player all want to see in a SF Game regardless on any level. By demand  I rallied a poll on visupoll.com, and 88% of all SF players wanted to have another Save the great Fox scene in another upcomming SF game...

Food For Thought...:)

YEAH!..... what he said.... we all know how hard but fun it was to proteect the great fox for the first time in sf64 and i think that there should be another level with protect great fox. suggestion: why not make venom a two part mission? the first half protect the great fox. and the second half defeat the final boss. any objections?:nod:
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Syphe D. Mar on April 03, 2007, 01:19:27 AM
I think suggestions should be on the suggestion thread. :blah:

@Chrono Reaper (bottom post): I meant the person above me when he said...

suggestion: why not make venom a two part mission? the first half protect the great fox. and the second half defeat the final boss. any objections?


Also, I question your authenticity of the statistics. Can you link the poll (without double posting) to here? Note that I, like you, am not involved in the project in any way other than commenting. :p I suppose you see me as what I saw AS before (and maybe now, depending on our attitude) even though I wasnt' directing towards you.

@DaBrain and/or Axem: I recently went back to see some old stuff on the old screenshot thread and... I was wonderin' about a few stuff over there, although I don't know where to post it. PM?
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Chrono Reaper on April 03, 2007, 02:41:13 AM
Sorry my apologies I had no idea  but its irreverent now seeing that i already  posted it... Besides I think this suggestion is too important to be on the suggestion box...  surely you can let this one slide since you and Da Brain do it all the time. You orchestrate the entire  portion of the site, no excuses over that you and Da Brain do a fine job ... As Hiroshi Yamauchi once said "what makes a great game designer is not from themselves... but the media of the people who want it by demand..."  

(BTW for some of you who don't know...Hiroshi Yamauchi is one of the supervisors and orchestrator of the Star Fox series along with many other Nintendo games he supervised)...

But you must admit if you want to make a great game (Which you are e doing right now... a helluva  good  job I might say ) You shouldn't  put your negativity on me seeing that we are only here to help as i assume as much seeing that the comment you replied to me was either  an insult or compliment or both.

That doesn't matter... what matters is that you put priorities on the game and worry about the flow of comments later...

Thanks to Wanderer, we finally got it properly working in-game. ;)

I've set it up against the Attack Carrier first, but that crashed the game... so it's fighting a cornerian ship now. It was just a test to see if it works correct anyway.

Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: DaBrain on April 07, 2007, 12:36:43 AM
Seriously... no!
I don't think we should try to challange them.

If the shots look better than in Starfox64, that's good. Even though there are still a few things in SF64 we still couldn't do.

The cool asteroid bursting. Waves on the water when you get close to it with your Arwing. Or even a simple star map, you can see your progress on.
(So we can't even beat the SNES game here...)

So, I don't think we should start comparing the game to any commercial game. It's supposed to be a nice addtion where you can see all the previous Arwings and some of the old enemies again. All on the same tech-level.


If you want to thank anybody... thank Nintendo and Q-Games. You can thank us when we've released something. ^^

Neat. I ne'er did like the shots from the 64 Great Fox. Look pretty pathetic during the Meteos level and Area 6. I find the ability to charge in SSBM kinda pretty, though. Great job.

For the test, is that the real health of the Arwing, or was it invincible during testing? Also, I find the reused Arwing icon on the lower portion of the HUD kinda... cheap.
Title: Screenshot thread!

The reason I'm asking is that there are a few friends of mine who have macs and they are planning to play this game... It would be very nice if you found a way to make it possible for friendly Mac users as well, seeing that 65% of all computer  users has at least one or more mac product at home.

Vaag is not a member of the team. He just wanted to support the project and made several skyboxes for us.

The box edges are my fault. I'm using a mapped cube instead of a cubemap.
That will change when I figure out how to rotate the maps in the cubemap. ;)

It's a puzzle!

No one has designed a first person view cockpit (that I know of). Probably because SF64 used 3rd person view. You can switch between both.

its perfect, except for:

A: the dynamic reticle could be a little more eyecandy-esque
B: it only works for mouse (for me, anyway)
C: it needs a head build as of now (unless WMC adds the required scripting functions to 3.6.10)

I'm not particularly interested in freespacelancer system as we already have implemented a proof-of-concept version of a different scripted 3rd person control/hud method with aiming aids.

And no.. its not freespacelancer type system but it works with all the controls.

B... It would be a small wonder if it did...
C... AFAIK that ain't gonna happen

Done. All four "Why" shots photoshopped up with the logo (Which is probably a little copywrighted, so be careful. It's the one from Assault). Mac users can request the logo on the left side, and anyone can request the logo to be gone.

Why1: A nice little shot featuring an arwing on fire. (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x292/earmite100/Starfox%20SOL%20Wallpapers/why1.jpg)
Why2: A shot featuring the arwing flying toward the viewer. (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x292/earmite100/Starfox%20SOL%20Wallpapers/why2.jpg)
Why3: The arwing getting shot at, from a veiwpoint behind one of the turrets. (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x292/earmite100/Starfox%20SOL%20Wallpapers/why3.jpg)
Why4: Awing using the afterburner/booster while flaming. (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x292/earmite100/Starfox%20SOL%20Wallpapers/why4.jpg)

Depends on your screen setup. It's there - but you may not see it. (I didn't see it till I adjusted the levels of the image in gimp) Didn't notice there was a pilot in the previous arwing pic till it was pointed out.

Probably some of the images I create are too bright/light for others. It used to be really noticeable between Mac and PC - (may have changed since then)
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: AqueousShadow on July 19, 2007, 08:08:31 AM
Oh, so I wasn't the only one to not notice the cockpit in the Arwing.

But I don't think the lack of HUD is because of the image. It's just not there and it's probably because of the script.

I think what Takashi means is that there are the afterburner/energy bars, targeting reticle, and shield icon, but nothing else.

Both require some more work than just the on-rail system.

Especially the Landmaster.
Although I have no doubts in Axem and Wanderer, this is going to be a though one. Nothing that will be in the chapter 1 release, if we try it at all.

I hate to be a critic, but in all of the screen shots, the background stars look like noise instead of actual stars.
It might be because they're too uniform in spacing and brightness, but it's a little distracting.
Otherwise, everything looks unbelievably awesome. I can honestly say this is the best looking space-game I've ever seen.

The only thing i would be picky about is the 2nd Screenshot on this Page. A bit away from the Arwing (upper left) there seems to be some very basic colors there in the far background. Like a Blotch of brownish grey and a blotch oh greenish. but yea if your flying you wouldnt really go "WOW theres a blotch in front of me". its not distracting nor bad, its just a picky opinion if i should say.

I'm also wondering about the Backdrop, Is FS2 backdrop like Source or Unreals like backdrop where its based on a Square. Using 6 sides
1st Side: Building
2nd Side: Farm
3rd Side: Grass
4th Side: Road
Top Side: Sky
Bottom Sky (usually in FPS its cover by the ground): Black

You can either use the classic mapped box, or whatever model(s) you like.

Actually it makes sense to map everything to a box, as you're perfectly in the center and won't see what's on the map, and what is not. Unless you need something animated, or a high-res object.

No comment.


However I'll tell you a technical thing.  
The turret does have normal maps and I'm using a build that already supports them.

Most of the SoL content has normal maps by now, but I turned it off in earlier screenshots. From now on I'll leave it turned on.
Although the feature is still in the testing stage, it's no secret anymore.

Well, kinda. Most ships already use the new features. Although they lack the consistency of a commercial title. So in a way we can't match SF:A in some areas... Even with the most advanced engine ever (UE3?).

It's a nice addition though. ;)

It will take some more time, that's all I can say. We've got an internal release date and it looks like we could make it.
The team is working really hard. :)

Playtesting and balancing will take quite a while too. So even if we could complete the first release soon, we wouldn't release it instantly.

There won't be a demo! We'll be releasing chapter 1 of the story.
This actually was supposed to be the demo, but turned out to be more complex and big than we actually had planned.

So we decided to do a bit more and take some more time for it.
Chapter 1 will feature two of the most technical complex missions in the demo, but not the most complex missions. ;)

There will be a lot of flyable fighters in multiplayer, as well as some content that won't be used in the single player campaign, for 3rd party missions.

Looking great, would be nice to see  percentage of Chapter one. I am not trying to rush you at all trust me I known alot of modding groups for years doing great work but still only 50% or so done. Making a game fast takes at least a year more depending on the detail and experience of the team.

Anyway an example of the percentage thing is here (http://evilmod.de/view/base.php?site=home&head=1&changelang=eng).

I honestly don't want to feel the team being pushed to do this. Even if you guys never release a screenshot again a percentage of the current chapter would be nice but is not necessary.

Nice to see the work coming along wish you guys good luck and keep up the great workˆˆ

There will be some coop missions. However, we don't know if one of them will be included in the chapter 1 release. It's unlikley though...
We could still need more FREDers.


@Brockenstein
I can't really put our progress in percent.
The city is still beeing rebuilt and another big thing needs to be textured now. Then there is only small stuff left to do, but fixing all problems and tweaking everything will take a lot of time, even when eveything on the list for chapter 1 is complete. Most work is left on the mission design anyway.

I just want to avoid the point where I'd say we're 99% done, and then in the end still need a three months or something, to get the whole thing working well enough to release it. (And 99 was just a random number...)
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Brockenstein on October 08, 2007, 08:28:05 AM
O thank you I really appreciate the response. Wasn't expecting one really lol.

I defiantly understand your reason for not wanting to do a percent. (And I really understand not ever wanting to put a date on anything.) Over at Moonlight Interactive been having the Beta version at 40% for a while. Not that the work has stopped ALOT has been done but its not a great idea to just go go and then realize you need to do ALOT of tweaks for the next few months which do often times lead to redesign in maps and missions.

Anyway it was just a suggestion. I think it would be very hard to do a total percent on the whole game. Since I am sure the amount of planed chapters will change has time goes on.

CoOp would be very kool, in whatever chapter you guys will have that in will be very kool I have a friend you will enjoy that alot.

The textures are better I agree, but I am not really sure that the models them selfs are that much higher polygon count. Not that I know what the current ones are and I don't feel like comparing them to my rips. If you look at the new stuff in Smash Brothers you might even say that the graphics in this are better but look at the different art styles. This game looks great but its art style isn't the same as the other Star Fox games.

You can't compare it.

We simply don't have the time to build stuff like Nintendo/Q-Games does.
Our only advantage is, that we're not limited by one specific hardware.

And even though the graphics may look better than in SF64, there are a lot of things we can't do. Even the original SNES game has a lot of stuff we simply can't do. The Andross face still impresses me. (Really!)  Well... plus it has long and complex levels which won't be in SoL in that form. Every single piece of the level is scripted. I doubt we can make that much stuff happen in one mission...
If things look nice, that's great, but if they're not interactive, it's still no fun.

Anyway,

But even then, since when has the Star Fox world ever been that interactive? There have always been a only a few pre-scripted objects you could shoot down, and you couldn't leave a mark on anything else. Save for 64, where you could marr the surface of the planet you were on, but shots still had no effect on buildings.

I think I could live without that. Wouldn't even mind not being able to leave marks, really, as long as I can squall some bogeys.

Ehm.... Da? I know how they pulled off Andross ^_^

Fox and Andross are stationary. Everything AROUND them moves past them. This way, Andross and Fox move in any direction but not forward or backwards across the rail path.

Then you could assign targets to certain sections of Andross' face, give them a health value, and when they're blasted: engage a cinematic

Thank you ^_^

I actually ment the SNES one. The animation is just too much for one of the first 3d games...

Also how the metal plates move into place and deform to the face... cool.

No way to to that in FS2. The animated background wouldn't be a problem in FS2, but it would eat up a lot of gfx memory... (a lot = too much)

O it always does. I remember when taking over a project a while back and the people that wanted the project to live but didn't actually work on the project were all like the simplest thing to fix the bugs we were having would be to wipe the loadout code for the NPCs and redo them correctly... I was like HELLZ NO! That is WAY too many lines of code to rewrite! Sure that sounds like the simplest way but normally what sounds simple is very complex and what sounds very complex is extremely complex lol.

I am sure though they will work on a since way to make things go eve if they are a bit different than the official games. Look at the art style of the textures alone and you can see the team is making something based off of those games not clones. I loved the Star Fox ships and stuff but I personally am not a big fan of Star Fox series so no telling I will like it better if they can't do a pure rails version.

starfox command I didn't really care for, because I didn't want to play a flight sim on my DS I didn't want to play Metriod story either I didn't care for the single player version of Metroid Hunters. (Loved the multiplayer which was what made the game) starfox command was meant to be a free range flight sim multiplayer but it was only meh-fully good to me.

Me not being a big Star Fox fan makes this game mean even more to me because I am impressed and want to play it when I am not a fan boy. So even if its all on rails or not there will be alot of other things than just being like the other Star Fox games that I will be looking at when playing it.

Da Brain is right you know the things you are saying would require over 30 pages of Javascript and C++ codling... (depending on the type of engine...though for something like this it looks considerable more complicated than what I'm doing) ...but then again I might be using a complicated engine too so I might be in that situation too.:eek: whats worse is that you have to also use some algebra and geometry, *sigh* and I thought I was already done with that in High School.

Perhaps you don't understand exactly how this works. SoL is a collaboration among volunteers who are doing this in their free time. This isn't a professional, corporate backed project. It's a bunch of guys who like FS2 and/or Star Fox who are putting a lot of work in during our off time from our day jobs, school in some cases, and other obligations and projects.

That comment is very selfish and disrespectful. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Fantasic!

Put that in your thumb and smoke it, blank! :)

Seriously, what is it though? It's wayyyy to big to be a standard fighter.
Because you mentioned that the "concept" was made by StarSlayer, I'm thinking it's some kind of previously unseen Cornerian heavy fighter/bomber.

And you're right.

It's a heavy cornerian craft and it's not a canon design. We need it for a very special purpose. ;)

Lose the ( ) things! They look out of place for the Star Fox universe. I don't remember any fighters having circle shapes on them before, and it doesn't fit. Just make them < > angular instead. :)

That aside, the model looks incredible. Great work guys. Keep it up!

You even added the barrel roll. :yes:

Awesome model. Great work StarSlayer, Atalhlla and VinsanityV20 :yes:.

I like the idea of the forward swept wings particularly, reminds of the Su-47 somewhat.

I'm guessing from the hint Axem that the wings move :nod: which would be very impressive.

Post by: Blink on January 07, 2008, 01:45:12 AM
Ah, fair enough. I thought they were just aesthetic, and their style doesn't exactly match anything we've seen before in Star Fox, so...
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Axem on January 07, 2008, 02:57:59 AM
Well I think you can chalk up no smooth stuff in Star Fox to the limitations of the technology in the day. You couldn't really do too much smoothing with the SNES or N64.

SF:A did have very sharp and angular designs, the Arwing did have some circular like objects around the G-Diffusers for it move during boosts and whatnot.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Blink on January 08, 2008, 02:18:37 AM
Yeah, but that really was only where it was necessary for rotations. Eg. The only circles on the landmaster were the wheels.

So yes, I could chalk it up to technical limitations... but technical limitations is how Star Fox came to look like what it looks like! They've always been really pointy, and the style stuck, so even in Assault it's all still pointy. :P Even the cornerian fighters.

Anyways, it's not important since it has a function, like the G-diffuser axis or the landmaster wheels.

I love that texture job.  Looks very professional and impressive.  Very well done, DaBrain.

one thing, I'm wondering though, what's your normal map workflow?  Do you build a high res model, and export the maps, or just convert an existing bump map?
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: DaBrain on February 27, 2008, 09:01:48 PM
The one in the screenshot it was simply made with a 2d hightmap, but the landscapes that will really be in our SoL release, all got normal and height maps (for parallax mapping) from a high-poly source.

We're still looking for more artists with at least basic sculpting experience. So far we only have two in the team.

That should be made into a Target Test stage dude ^^

That metal-ish texture would look great for the inside of a cave or meteorites you can pass through on your way through a target test of 100 killable ships.

Whaddaya think? _--

either that or you should make tester maps. You said multiple Arwings are pilot ready. Maybe you can use these textures in something that lets you just fly around and look at parts of the game that never made it :/

This is highly unimportant, but I am curious why the original Arwing has been altered with a canopy which stretches farther back along the fuselage than it should. As an example, check out this "Super FX" Ad from Nintendo (which was from the arwinglanding website):

[ATTACH]4201[/ATTACH]

Clearly, the Shadows of Lylat "original" Arwing bears a canopy profile reminicent of a WWII fighter with additional glazing to the rear for improved visibility... not that that's a bad thing. The Arwing from the '93 release of the Star Fox game, however, has no such facility...

You may have noticed this pic from page 16 of this very thread. (Or not, there's a lot to read)
(http://i8.tinypic.com/4u3fiao.jpg)

This was apparently their first version, and was very close to the FX ad version.

Then they updated it:
(http://i12.tinypic.com/54insaw.jpg)

Yeah there's the canopy thing. But you have to admit, the current version looks pretty awesome. That's probably they took some liberties with the design.
When you consider that the original model is what everyone remembers, the new canopy thing can only help.

From what I've seen, no. It's not like it even close when compared to all-range mode (but the changes are for the better), Star Fox games are arcade-ish while this is more like a simulator. So that means dog fights will take a 3D approach with ships darting not only left and right but up and down as well... of course in space those are all relative...

So what? ^^
You know the Landmaster is supposed to be 17,5 meters long, so an Arwing is almost the same size, and therefor I guess a car is really small next to an Arwing, so we'll maybe see the cars on ground. :D

But you're right, I don't think there will be ground missions, and maybe it's better like that.
Hey, I wanted to ask, will you modelise Fox and the crew? I mean, will we see them inside their ship or even out?
I have another question, in space missions, when we will come to Sector X/Y/Z, will we see the nebulas?

I am absolutley astounded at the screenshots of the game, and I wait patiently, like a hidden bomb about to explode. (:eek:) I doodle StarFox style ships during math class, and my assignments are a cross of algebra and the Sector Z "Defend Your Ship!" battle. Freaky Z cloud included. I was maybe wondering if I could scan the drawings and send them to the concept artist. (Saw him around here somewhere!) I'd have to carefully draw, not doodle, to make them resemble anything except spilled ink stains, but, MAYBE one of them could become an enemy ship? Maybe... even a boss? Meh, that's pushing too far.

(I will NOT pull a Starfox Command and make some of the stupidest enemies, like Q-Games did. But I WOULD lik to see the arwing variations from that game, especially the Cloud Runner, as playable ships.)

Let me rephrase for our sake: If killing would bring about the completion of a demo, I would do it. XD

Er, so, it doesn't get much bigger than this, Fox's Feather.

...at least for you guys. I personally find the announcement of SoL's existence to be a much bigger deal, because I'm a fan of the hype process leading up to a game. :D

Sorry, for the delay here.

The team has done some fine work. Our new member darkfox is already working on his second model and supernova, who took a while off, is back and really came back with a bang. I also like how well Visanity found his way into the team.


Only I've been lazy. ;)
Or rather, I've been doing some more of the "boring stuff", so there isn't much of my work to show yet.

But as a tribute to the nice work of darkfox, I'd like to show you the untextured model:

(http://i29.tinypic.com/16234a8.jpg)



There is still something pretty big in the works, which can be presented here soon.
Just wait and see. ;)

Original wolfen can't be ripped directly from the game (no tech exists to do that... to my knowledge).

However, this looks very nice. Kinda a new...-er Wolfen based off the Assault model.

I'll be waiting with bated breath ;P

I can confirm that there was a model ripped from Assault using emulators and 3d ripping technology. Let me tell you that was an annoying process mainly because of the FPS and having to play through the game to get to the spots where the Wolfen was. That rip was ONLY for reference work. Ripping doesn't have the best results for an actual usable model.

The screen shot DaBrain posted is a model done by Darkfox not a rip or anything like that.

I don't see why it isn't possible but I have never tried. The easiest way I see it is the emulator being based of DirectX now if its based of OpenGL that will work as well but takes a little more effort to setup. Now something I wouldn't mind trying out in the possible near future is ripping the models from the Super Smash Brothers Brawl. I never pay attention to what the differnces in models are for the ArWing, Wolfen, Landmaster etc. While playing the game. Though I haven't even looked at the emulator technology for the Wii since I own a Wii and have had no reasons to... though I guess I own a GameCube too so thats not a very good reason. I don't even remember what got me into emulating and ripping models... [Added note: Any ripping I do is for my personal tasks not for SoL though if asked for I am always willing to offer it up as reference work.]

It's probably the fact that you can see all the details, prior to textures obscuring what's modeled, thus it looks more sleek.

I'm not sure when I signed up (I think it was ages ago).
But I recently found this project again and it has literally moved along leaps and bounds.
With every screen shot I find my anticipation for this games release growing and I am so excited.
I remember when I first came across this project and was shocked by the graphic but the new screenshots are crazy.
The skill and time put into this is admirable.

Well done!
I wish there was something I could do to get involved but I'm more of a pencil and paper guy ):

I don't remember the exact look of the Assault Wolfen, but, if someone here has brawl, he could see the wolfen trophy and take a few pictures from different angles, and submit it for the crew to analyse it and re-create the model faithfully.
I don't know if that woulkd really work, it's just an idea :lol:

Don't worry, that's really what the Assault Wolfen looks like. We have plenty of reference material for the Wolfen. Please read the posts after the picture of the Assault Wolfen for more info as to why I have said this.

You even added the barrel roll. :yes:

Sadly, I don't have the time to work on it any more, so I pretty much released it "as is" at the end of my summer, and haven't been able to touch it since.

No, there won't be an in-game option for that. It would require special shaders and a lot more complicated stuff.

From the original topic

Quote from: Fox McCloud (Original Name btw)
Thus, here is the list of games where Fox has had blue eyes:

Star Fox
Star Fox 2
Super Smash Brothers
Super Smash Brothers Melee
Star Fox (Wario Ware edition)

Green Eyes:

Star Fox 64
Star Fox Adventures (and this was a blue-ish green)
Star Fox Assault
Star Fox Command
Super Smash Brothers Brawl (can't confirm this 100%, it's possible they *could* change it, though it's doubtful)

I still think fox's eyes changed colors between in-game and the victory screen on Melee. :nervous:

well it looks like #2 is simply #1 with different blurring - but I think you guys have that figured already.

First impression was that it looks like a waterfall covering a caves exit (looking at it from inside the cave).
Second guess is that it is a meteorite/asteroid, breaking up, hence the dust trails.

banana...?:wtf:
bananas are yellow.unless someone burned the banana!
but where the burnt banana fits the story...? Could it be a boss?(c'mon the idea isn't that crazy remember lucky 7's)



WAIT I GOT IT!
It is a giant burnt banana with mist around it! And it is the great villain of the whole game!I am a genius:ha:!

Post by: Fox's_Feather on October 19, 2008, 03:51:48 PM
After giving some consideration to the picture, I may change my opinion.
It is a Banana SPLIT! So the blurry all around is more or less chantilly cream.
Got my point?

And of course, it perfectly fits with the game. And I already know what it will be.
A mission will be on Titania, and when you crash your Arwing there, there is a special level on foot, and you must fight the heat by eating banana split.

Your game has no secret for me. :pimp:

It's a waterfall, meant to serve the same purpose as it did in Star Fox 64! Give way to the secret exit leading to the attack carrier! XD
...that's what it looks like. But I could be wrong.

My opinion on the screens?

Something coming out of a large body of water really fast, like a missile, airsub, or high-tech space fighter.
The second picture is just the same thing with some additional effects to make it look more "splashy" and less polygonal.

Sorry to hear about your wiki page, but as soon as this puppy gets released, you can put in a brand new, probably better, and extremely relevant entry.


Also: who ever expected Uncyclopedia to be factual, accurate, or the least bit serious?
And as long as you're there, be sure to read Cat-Toast Device (http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Cat-Toast_Device) and the Russian Reversal (http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Russian_reversal_%28joke%29).

Hey all, just thought I'd chime in and say how impressed I am with the models on display in this thread (especially the fantastic texture work).  Everything looks great in motion, and really shows off that "floaty but lively" StarFox quality that most space sims lack.  The atmospheric missions too--hot damn!  You have really accomplished a lot; I'm looking forward to some mad hyper laser action.

Try not to think of it as which is better. The true to the mark StarFox games aren't really sim style, but are a bit arcade-y. (OK, they were a sim back in the day, but not now.) SoL is going to be heavily sim-like, from what I've seen. So it depends on what you consider StarFox to be. Either way, SoL is looking to be a great addition to the StarFox series (Even though it is unofficial) and would definatley be able to stand up with the official games. But, we all know that SoL would beat Command, by far. It's like comparing a cannon to a squirt gun. Not a Super Soaker rifle-style thing, those dinky little pistols that squirt tiny little bursts out, and take so long to fill.

Now excuse me while I go back to floating around the internet during my 4 day long weekend from school.

Hmm, well, in FreeSpace it doesn't have a cockpit view. (It has a first person view, but it only has the HUD, not any of the cockpit) I've seen some other mods attempt to create it, but none that worked too well. So chances are, SoL won't have cockpit views either. Atleast not for a while. :/

Feel free to correct me, any of the SoL crew.

BtrL seems to have a pretty slick looking cockpit mode.  Who knows when they'll release though...I'd bet that some of the other FS2 mods will be incorporating it too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JgfzsUNm4E

Personally I think it would be neat but not at all essential; Starfox is all about the slick floating behind view.  The SNES games both had HUD views too--Not quite cockpit mode, but close enough for the 16 bit days.

The dude's sentence was perfectly understandable, you're need to rip on him because of it is not.  

Yes SoL is working towards supporting cockpits.  Thanks to the folks of Freepace community and the SCP, FSOpen continually increases its functionality. While retail only had HUD view many FSO Mods are implementing cockpits.  While still in development cockpit view coupled with Track IR (a system that translates the users head movements to changes in the game view) has been successfully used in FS2Open mods such as BTRL.

i think a cockpit view would be awesome for SOL. i was seriously hoping that in assault they would use the power of the gamecube to create a realistic cockpit but.. sadly to my dissappointment, they didnt. so if SOL had that it would REALLY lift my spirits.

There are any number of reasons why the rookie might have written the post like that English might not be his first language either.

Here's a Q, will SoL have updatable content?

As in, possibly additional patches to include new things to the game after its release?

Or will it be just a core game, apart from bug-fixing patches?

Post by: Brockenstein on December 04, 2008, 10:29:19 AM
Who cares what inspired the creation. It stands on its own. I am sorry but Star Wars isn't original but I don't want to see one of my Akira Kurosawa films turned into a Star Wars fan film. In fact I really feel that you shouldn't try to combine Star Fox with any other universe unless its a multi-verse thing in the first place. (ex. Mods where they pull models from everything.) Trust me Star Fox doesn't need Star Wars stuff to try to enhance its game play or story. Also when you are creating a game or anything for that matter you always have inspirations and even if one stands out more than the others you always have more than one inspiration so don't dishonor the creators of Star Fox own creativity or the other inspirations they might of had besides "Star Wars".

Once that baby is textured up to the standards of the other two, you guys will have a complete set of the best looking arwings ever to appear in a game.  Will the ailerons move during atmospheric missions?  I ask because the movement on your Assault arwing is really impressive, and those type of touches really put the ships over the top.  Even if they don't move, it's still an excellent model (and my favorite Starfox ship).  Way to go!

That is a sexy Arwing, Tura. Nice work! This game certainly looks promising now that there are new screenshots. I've never really looked here and posted. Maybe I should more often.

Out of curiosity do you not believe Tura's Arwing qualifies as sexy or do you have issues with the word sex on general terms?  If its the former the Arwing is still a WIP, Tura does good work so once its been finished up, UVed and textured I am pretty confident it will be.  If its the latter fighter craft have long been described as sexy, first glance at a North American P-51 or Supermarine Spitfire generally explains why they earn that superlative.

C'mon guys - no love for Bill's/Krystal (in Star Fox Command) fighter? It's a custom Cornerian Fighter, y'know? In fact, the version we're working on is almost done and ready to be shown....

(http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q164/vinsanityv20/StarFoxCommandKrystalsCustomCornern.jpg)

This is what I'm talking about, and since progress is pretty slow around here (though for a fan game, we're moving at light speed! I mean time frames for fan games are like 5-6 years; at least double the time for a retail release...), here's some screenies from the WIP (work in progress). Screenshot threads needs screenshots, right?

(http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q164/vinsanityv20/2f.jpg)

(http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q164/vinsanityv20/NRM_render4.jpg)

That's all you get for now though! Thing's not finished - though it's close - so no more WIP renders. Besides, things always look about twice as good once everything's all done and DaBrain puts 'em in-engine, so I still want Bill's Custom Fighter to have that 'Wow!' factor when you guys next see it. Hopefully I can finish it up before Christmas and some new screens can be sort of a Christmas present for anyone checking out the screenshot thread...

haha - just lettin' you know, no one really uses Blender. I know when you're starting out, it's attractive because it's open source and free. Look around at any job listing pages on a game developers website, and they won't be looking for Blender artists. Not to mention there are tons of tutorials on sites like CGSociety/3DTotal/Polycount/Gnomon Workshop for certain other 3D packages. Industry standards like 3dsMax (personal fave) and Maya may be free if you know your way around BitTorrent, but I wouldn't know about that:naughty:

And fan game time frames are still three to four times faster than the development cycle for Duke Nukem Forever. :shaking:

The ship looks excellent, though for me the green has a little too much blue in it compared with the bomber in your sig pic.  Might just be the render... Hopefully these ships won't be as easy to accidentally shoot down as the allies in 64?  Or is that half the fun?  Anyway, great work and very exciting!

Haha - thanks guys, but to be honest, it's SuperNova who modeled it. I just did some clean up, tweaking, and minor additions - for the mod, I'm just a texture artist, though I do model outside of mod work. Every ship in the game is a joint effort, for between my finishing a texture, at least one more person touches it before it goes in the game.

Team effort guys; it's a team effort! And also, the finished ship should pop up soonish - I recently finished my first go with the normal map (which is the third pic; it fakes a lot of detail) and specular map (which tells the model to be shiny like metal). If the team likes it, it's done. If I have some tweaks to make, I gotta go back for a little bit. Still, it's very close to done. And it will look good - you can be sure of that.

Hahaha - true. And a little sad. Hey, maybe that latest version they've been showing off may actually come out in the next five years or so - I mean, they did eventually get around to finishing up Prey. I'll give 'em the benefit of the doubt, though I certainly hope we get something out before DNF does:D

I like a lot of what I see, and I gotta say this whole thing is looking great so far.

Granted, this thing will probably be released before Duke Nukem Forever ever does (lol), so I personally don't mind waiting.

I like the feeling of nostalgia I'm getting from this, and I think that's what is going to make this game great. It's taking an old concept of what made StarFox successful, and it's bringing it in a direction that is both beautiful and incredibly detailed.

Great job guys, I can't wait to see more of this.

Industry standards like 3dsMax (personal fave) and Maya may be free if you know your way around BitTorrent, but I wouldn't know about that:naughty:

Just remember, it's not really stealing if all you're doing is practicing. It's only stealing if you make profit from your work. At least, that's what I tell myself:)

Not that I do that kinda thing

HAHA my professor tells us that because he wants us to practice practice practice!

And yeah any free programs out there aren't used by the industry. They like to use all those pricey expense programs. That pretty much goes across the board on all industries.

And just a note: Almost anything is free if you know your way around the BitTorrent Network

Well if they tried to do that, that would be alot of work and would hinder the release by far. as well it would take alot of scripting and a couple of new voice actors. adding and removing levels would take alot of work. shure its an awesome idea but you have to conscider the consequences of what would happen if they tried it.

True. But I was under the impression that they where releasing the missions 1 by 1 (Chapter 1, 2, etc.). So it wouldn't lower the release dates of the other missions. But you're right - it would be a lot of extra work, plus the voice actor for James (& possibly Andross).

sigh, you have to admit it would be fun though.

although apart from the wings I love this design too. Even the wings grow on me I suppose. I dunno, they just seem a bit Assault-y for me (With the shape and the exposed bearing etc.).

My only major gripe about the Brawl Arwing was that it seemed a little... smooshed.

The nose of the ship seems a bit too short, and the cockpit comes down in a triangle. The angle itself is kinda steep, which leads me to wonder if the person piloting the ship isn't sitting with their head in their lap.

But that's just me =/

Post by: Devestator on December 31, 2008, 03:49:33 PM
I think the brawl arwing was meant to be a smaller scale. The Assault arwing from wingtip to wingtip was about half as long as one of the enemy cruisers from mission 1 after all. :P

In any case, My perfect arwing would be the SF64's general proportions, but with Assault's sleekness.

It's possible that Fox wants more "content" related Screenshot updates, rather than just teasers of ship designs.

Granted, both are cool, but I for one would like to see another In-game photo sometime soon.

Of course, that depends on what Da feels like.

We figured, it has been quite a few time since the last update, so we'll try to post pictures of the development more often again, even if it's just from content that is still work-in-progress.


And here we have the venom frigate. We're trying to speed up the texturing by using high-poly source meshes from now on.
(http://i39.tinypic.com/2n1yg69.jpg)
It also really increases the quality of the normal maps.
The rear part comes next week.


You can compare the normal mapped ship with the one without normal maps.

I think it's how angular his face is and the lack of proper contrast in the fur. The most blatent "weirdness" with the Assault Fox was the teeth, thy looked like shark's teeth or something, particularly blatent on the cover art.
On a related note: The voice acting for Fox in assault seemed a bit bland at times, or not approprately enthusiastic or timed properly when responding to another character. (the sound for his voice was pretty good, possibly the best matched of the English dubs, and the others' voices were probably the best all around in any game)

I agree about the other character designs being good from assault (though they lacked some of the detail rendering seen in Rare's game, I liked the overall design more) as well as the odd look of Command's character designs.

Agreed, Rare's fur-effects were some of the best seen in an GameCube game I've ever played at least. If SFAdv's storyline wasn't so sketchy, it might've been received better.

I think that except in the case of Falco, all of the Adventures models just looked like higher res and tex versions of the Lylat wars ones; not that that's a bad thing.

The Harlock frigate looks great--well detailed and much more menacing than the original with all those turrets.  But now that I've had a taste, I'm chomping at the bit to see what the other enemy cap ships will be...Zeram Cruisers?



Yes, supernova has almost completed the model. ;)

Wait a mo, Da, you guys have all this stuff done...

Am I correct in assuming that you guys have gotten a lot of stuff done recently? It seems odd that all these models would be done in so short a time of eachother, unless they were all started at roughly the same time...

not to sound mean but if you had read all of the posts in this thread (nearly impossible i know XD) you would know that if we can't get the landmaster in the game, they wouldn't be able to make it so you can explore. and its not what the engine was designed to do in the first place. the game was designed purely for space combat. it was proven a huge challange for them to make the planetary missions as well. so that about sums it all up i think (please correct me if im wrong Da XD)

you know, it would be nice if you read older comments other than the ones that you find. you would then learn that the engine cant do ANYTHING ground related. that means that the landmaster and exploring are definately off the to do list. the blue marine was a possibility, but i think that they scrapped it for other reasons.

Even if he did, it would quickly get flooded with admiring and tangential posts just like the other two, and newcomers would still have to sift through many such pages to find the screenshots...  Perhaps sometime in the future there will be a ship database/pretty picture archive on the SoL website, or a locked Dev blog thread here like on the Diaspora forum?  Not that I mind having to dig around--less time spent organizing photos=more time making the game awesome!

Are you guys still going to use the Adventures Arwing? I know you where running a thread a while ago to discuss how they operated...

and on the subject of threads, I think there's less discussion now on this one rather than less screen shots--it's only been a couple of pages guys.

"Adios Andross." Peppy-Starfox 2

EDIT: BTW: has anyone thought of what will happen to this forum once the game is complete? I mean will you guys (the SOL crew) still be monitoring and answering questions, or will you let it go and die? (Or maybe set up a web site dedicated to SOL...)

And something that just occurred to me, do you plan on releasing a manual with this game? (PDF or something)

There are a few Corneria pictures earlier in the thread, they're all of the city, and there aren't hundreds of them, but they're there.

Also DaBrian said that they where remodelling the city from scratch, so maybe we'll see some more pictures once they've finished. Also the bridge that they were showing earlier could well be from Corneria...

I'm glad that you've put in some really big asteroids. I think that in the games they tend to be a bit on the conservative side with asteroid size, even in Assault.

2 questions though; 1st, are those little fires on the asteroid flares from blasters fire, or are they something else?

And 2nd, how are you going to be handling the frame rates for in the asteroid areas? are you using fog, or culling or what? I'm just asking because from that picture, there seems to be a hell of a lot of rock in the background of that shot, and it seems to me that it would cause even most high end systems to choke.

P.S. I would like to extend my thoughts to any fellow Victorians who are being (or have been) affected by the bushfires. (or New South Welsh)
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: DaBrain on February 09, 2009, 08:23:36 PM
1. Yes, I shot the asteroid to test the collision. Big objects sometimes have holes in the collision, but it seems to be fine.

2. The asteroid isn't that complex. It does have quite a few polygons, but it has level of detail models, which blend in pretty fast. So the total polygon count on screen should still be reasonable.
There is currently no way to use fog outside of a "nebula". And FSO does frustum culling (and of course backface culling).

Most of the rocks in the background are part of the skybox though, so don't worry. ;)

Post by: DaBrain on February 12, 2009, 10:14:21 PM
Probably both and you will most likely even see it in one or two deathmatch levels.

We don't have that many skyboxes yet, so we need to use the few we got more often.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Star Yoshi on February 13, 2009, 02:14:00 AM
Consolidation of your assets is the smartest thing. You can take a clear-blue skybox used for planets and work off of that and recolor it to make sunset scenes and such.

Though all of this is inconsequential really. You guys know what you're doing, I won't suggest too much =)

Hey Falco, can you try to remember which thread it was on? I haven't seen anything like that - it sounds pretty cool. I hope they do make a comeback, the only problem with them from Area 6 is that you go past them so fast that its virtually impossible for them to do much damage to you.:hoppingma At least if you're any good at barrel rolling that is.:naughty:

Also, a question for the SOL team, are any of the bosses from Starfox SNES or Starfox 2 likely to make an appearance? or (Except for the SFX Arwing obviously) is it all strictly Lylat Wars universe?

And speaking of barrel rolling; how are you guys going with getting them working? I know you where having some problems before...:(

Well they sort of did, every one of the traditional (Starfox, Lylat Wars and Assault) games had one:

  • Starfox - The Space Armada.
  • Lylat Wars - Area 6.
  • Assault - Oikanny's fleet in orbit over Fortuna.

The problem with the Assault one is that there isn't anywhere near enough stuff shooting at you; I suppose by dint of it being the first level...

Coincidently, did you notice that some of the best music from each of those games are in those areas?

Post by: Fox's_Feather on February 18, 2009, 01:05:18 PM
I didn't play LylatWars since my 2076 score.

And no, I don't think that Space Armada and that ridiculous battle with Oikonny is in any way near Area 6.
The first level of Sf Assault is more similar to Sector Y, not Area 6.
The point is to break through a whole fleet ALONE and with all enemies aiming at you, not to give a hand in a space melee.

The Umbra Class Battle Stations did a come back in Sf Command (you find them in a few levels on Venom, but they are much more lame), and in one of the ending where it is said Dash declared war to Corneria, we can see some kind of circular capital ships. A hope?

Space Armada was not the same. First of all the graphics(correct word?) were kind of horrible, plus the level was kind of different. There were like 5-6 ships (maybe even less) and thats all.

Anyway, the feeling when you destroy a Zeram Battlecruiser, with the awesome explosions sounds and the way they seem to crash is way more delightful.

Wow, I feel like I got lost while I was writing, I need to practice my english.

Look I'm not saying that Area 6 wasn't the best. I'm just saying that Space Armada was similar. & as far as any of the battles in StarFox went, Space Armada was pretty full on--you just have to remember the severe technical constraints of the time--if they made an Area 6 remake these days you could probably have twice as many ships in action plus other stuff going on in the background and have things in view for longer (reducing the pop-in effect that was prevalent in all Lylat Wars space missions)

Oh and with co-op, is that like everyone on the starfox team is controlled by a player, or are there other pilots that are playable as well.

EDIT: I was wondering if it would be possible for a more updated teaser trailer. there must be something that you guys could quickly cobble together.

That environment looks awesome, especially the lighting on the hills--they really look like they're glowing in the sunset/rise.  Also those mountains in the distance look both convincing and artfully done...is the player bound in by a version of the old Starfox invisible walls or can you fly at the backgrounds forever?  Very exciting!

Yeah, the water is still work-in-progress.
Although it does rely on shaders, it's a lot harder to 'create' than in most other games...

Shiv, our coop mission designer, has a special system for this in mind. You can keep flying into the background until the distance to the isle is too big.
If you keep flying, you get a warning, if you don't turn by then, your fighter explodes. ;)

1. There are some problems to solve, but your Arwing will probably loose a wing when it got enough damage.

2. No, probably not.

3. The game will come with the FRED2 Open editor, which is very powerful, but that "simple" to use. If you just want to put up some bad guys into space and fight them, it's actually very simple though.
There are some good tutorials for FRED2 too.

4. Not yet, but there has been some progress.
We really want to have it in the game, but it's not easy.

Well, if you know a good OpenGL coder, who would write a material system for us, that wouldn't be a problem.
We do have a very good GLSL (and HLSL) shader coder in our team already.

I don't know the plot, but I've got a good suggestion. (clears throat)
There is an outbreak at the Sector Y labs! The Venomian Army has inadvertaly released a deadly virus, called the Shadow of Lylat virus, infecting them, and several of the Sector Y scientists. The virus, deadlier than it sounds (it sounds deadly enough), can cause those who are infected to, in 5 minutes after infection, have a dark clone, pure evil. The Cornerian Army tried to fight off this new threat, but alas - They got infected as well! It seems that the Lylat System's only hope is Star Fox.

So... I'm guessing mine topped all of your ideas for missions! :ha: :P

i don't doubt that the cornerians might've found some sort of virus Andross was creating, maybe somewhre in Venom or sector X, Bolse, Whatever, started to study it, and thanks to their incopetence the virus escaped.

Hold on a sec, what if it was on a much smaller scale, It could remain confidential, and it could also be a mission in which StarFox and StarWolf have to work together. Only the two teams manage to get infected, the people at the labs died and their copies were unstable and disappeared, therefore only the 8 pilots get infected and have doubles.

I won't let such a good idea be thrown out.

What the--? leave you guys alone for a while and look what happens, everything's gone to pot!:lol:

Not wanting to be a party pooper, but I honestly can't think of one example where the virus type idea worked, I even find the idea of Dark Link in Zelda to be irritating, sure it's fun to play against, but I don't know or care why its there. If you want to face counter parts, look no further than the whole premise of Star Wolf, four rival pilots that face off one on one against Star Fox. the idea of clones, mutant twins, or divine magical doubles just drags the plot down in my opinion.

Knowing little to nothing about the SoL plot, I'd suggest that it is mostly based into the back story of Assault. In Assault, we are lead to believe that the war between Andross' troops and the Cornerian army has being continuing in some shape or form in the background for years. I'd suggest that the plot of SoL is a flare up in the conflict, and that Star Fox is called in for back up; As per Star Fox Assault.

Only the two teams manage to get infected, the people at the labs died and their copies were unstable and disappeared, therefore only the 8 pilots get infected and have doubles.

I won't let such a good idea be thrown out.


You don't have to let of of that idea.
We're putting quite a bit of extra content into release 1, so you can design your own missions(!)

We'd love to see many user-made missions!
Maybe we'll pick up some ideas from those missions and we'll certainly look for good mission designers out there.

Quote from: Andross;113183

What sort of things are you working on at the moment DaBrain? is there any chance of seeing some of the recent work (Like the new LW Arwing, new wolfen, and those awesome battleships) textured?


I'm very busy right now, so I won't work on much this month. (That's also the reason why MicroSpace was put on halt for a while.)
That doesn't mean there is nothing going on.
There is still some amazing work being done right now. Supernova returned and is working on very cool model right now.
TSLO, is currently designing an interface concept for SoL.
And a lot of other stuff.

We recently fixed most bugs in SoL. There was a lot of broken models, missing/broken textures and some more serious problems.
There are still a few issues left, but it runs a lot better than before.

The Gummi Ship creator from Kingdom Hearts 2 comes to mind here, anyways you would either need modeling experience and a way to port it into the game, or create a thing like the gummi creator were you make bunt objects from hemispheres, cubes, and triangles... Unless of course there's another way.

FRED (the mission design software SoL use to make their missions) is easy enough to use that you don't need to be a super skilled modder to make missions. There's no need to learn a programming language in order to make a mission. The real guts of the stuff is fairly close to plain English and you pick the commands you need out of a menu rather than having to remember them. A lot of the other stuff is done via editing screens. For instance this one controls all the background images.

(http://homepage.ntlworld.com/karajorma/Misc-Pics/BtRL/Walkthrough-18.jpg)

Learning which buttons to press doesn't take that long either and there will definitely be people around who will help. :)

On the other hand though, FRED is also really powerful and thanks to the fact that we have the source code it gets more powerful all the time. So it's one of those easy to learn, lifetime to master things. It's not hard to learn how to make good, playable missions but the experts (like the FREDders on the SoL team) can do a lot more advanced stuff with it. :)

Quote from: ArwingT;113203

FRED only allows you to design the missions using the pre-existing ships that the SoL team provide. Modding your own ships is possible though if you use a 3D modelling program.

I'm not sure what SoL's point of view on this is though as mods can interfere with multiplayer, etc (You need to make sure people can't use mods in multiplayer or they can cheat). They'll probably allow it but with certain simple rules to ensure that your ships don't interfere.

I see. Well lets hope some real great missions are made, heck, perhaps people can make missions for online infiltrations of the enemy's base and have hundreds, if not, thousands of enemy fighters warping in from every direction. Also, I bet that in no time, someone's gunna make an Andross model and port it ingame as a mission. I know it's just gunna happen.

While on the topic of creation and editing, would it be possible to change the transmission pictures (Team Pictures for radio) and audio so you can personalize it? I think that kind of thing would be awesome.

I would really love to see what would happen with this mission editor idea.

Would REALLY enjoy seeing an "Epilogue" section of SoL's storyline in which the best user-made missions get added as "User-Created Content" in game-wide patches released by the team.

Would be cool to see popular missions get reworked and debugged by the SoL team.

Quote from: Falco314;113250

Ideally, when making a campaign like SoL things work like this.

1) The team decide roughly on the storyline they want for the missions
2) The artists make the ships, weapons and backgrounds (and in the case of SoL, landscapes). This is probably the most time consuming step.  
3) The FRED team then take that stuff and edit it into missions. This is the point where all the enemy waves are worked out. The FREDder is the one who works out what happens when a particular ship is destroyed (friendly or enemy). The FREDder is the one responsible for adding the dialogue that is played throughout the mission (Mision Briefings and Debriefings too).
4) Playtest the hell out of everything.
5) If you're making a voice acted mission you then get people off the net to record lines for you.
6) Release to the public.

The mission design software lets you lot come in at step 3. You're given a selection of ships and weapons and it's basically up to you to make that into a mission. The only limits to what you can do are the ships you were given, the limitations of the game engine and your own imagination.

Basically if the team have said that they can't do something you probably can't either as it's most likely something that isn't possible in the game engine. If on the other hand they've simply said that they won't be doing a particular storyline and the ships are available, you might be able to.


When it comes to making your own ships, yeah it's possible. But it's just as hard and time consuming for the fans as it is for the team. And even when you're done you'll still have to do the other steps properly too. :)

Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: DaBrain on March 12, 2009, 09:08:32 PM
The most easiest way to create your own missiosn will still be just to use the ships we include in release 1.

Anything else, like adding new ships, will be more complex and won't be directly supported by the SoL team.
That doesn't mean you may not mod SoL though. You'll just be on your own.

Hey arwing-T, could you possibly put the two pictures in your signature side by side rather than on top of each other; it'd just take up a little less space.

Are there prescripted commands with FRED, or do I need a crash course on FreeSpace source code?

You basically pick the commands you want from a menu. Here's an example of the way an event would look in FRED.

(http://www.fs2downloads.com/freddocs/relentless-pulling-out.gif)

The idea of this little script is that when a previous event called Relentless Captured happened 45 seconds ago, repair the engines to 100% and tell the ship to go to a waypoint. As you can see even if I hadn't explained it you could get a vague idea of what that all means. :)

Noob, unless it's self explanatory to you, means newcomer or new person.

Fragger or Frag, simply means the variations of the word kill.

We figured, it has been quite a few time since the last update, so we'll try to post pictures of the development more often again, even if it's just from content that is still work-in-progress.


And here we have the venom frigate. We're trying to speed up the texturing by using high-poly source meshes from now on.
(http://i39.tinypic.com/2n1yg69.jpg)
It also really increases the quality of the normal maps.
The rear part comes next week.


You can compare the normal mapped ship with the one without normal maps.

The good thing is that a good texture/normal map doesn't cost anything more than a bad one.

The ship has less than 3k polies.
If your PC can take Diaspora and BtRL, it should be able to handle SoL as well. Only the ground missions will need a bit more powerful hardware.

I always found it {The Gorgon} funny that its actually one of the smaller bosses you face, yet its supposedly the most powerful one. (I know it looks pretty big, but when you compare how close you are to it in comparison to most the other bosses...)

And yeah, I don't think there would be anyone who wasn't slightly disturbed by Andross the first go around...

Aww, not this again!

Lets clear this. And everybody listen.

The Arwing that James and Peppy fly in Command (The so called 'Original Arwing') is obviously supposed to be a low poly version of the Assault Arwing. thus it is pretty safe to assume that if someone talks about the Command Arwing, they are referring to the Arwing II.

.: Command Arwing = Arwing II!
Original Arwing in Command = Assault Arwing!!!

A little harsh but it's actually quite true. :)

That reminds me of how I got started out as a coder for this engine. I've been a mission designer ever since I got a copy of Freespace 2. When the source code for the game was released I would always play with all the new mission design features that the coders added to the game.

Eventually I had a really cool idea for a new feature that would add a lot to the game and sounded reasonably simple to make. I asked the coders if they would make it for me and one of them liked the idea and sounded interested. So I waited, and waited, and waited. I occasionally prodded the guy to remind him but he was always busy with other stuff (understandably).

So one day I simply picked up a "Teach yourself C++ in 24 hours" book, worked through it, downloaded the FS2_Open code and started coding stuff. After a couple of months I had enough experience to code the feature I wanted all along (it took me a month and I can see now why I had to wait so long :D )

Now I suppose some of you are thinking "But you're an uber coder. I'm not" Fact is I'm not a good C++ coder. I'm decidedly below average, actually. But I am willing to spend time on this and a lot of the coding needed for the game simply requires time and a bit of knowledge, not mad coding skillz. That's why there are only two people who have fixed more bugs in the FS2_Open code than I have.

And I'm not the only coder to do that. Many of the graphical upgrades to the engine came from someone doing the exact same thing. Someone who also learned C++ just so they could work on the game.


All this brings me back to your point Fox's_Feather. A lot of people say "I'd love to help out but I can't." For some of them it's true. Not everyone has the talent to actually help out with something like SoL. But there are a lot of creative people on this forum and for some of them I suspect that the real answer is "I've never tried and I've never considered putting in the time in to try."

I know the team are only hiring experienced modellers but when it comes to coding, any newbie can help out simply by checking out the code and fixing bugs or adding features they think the team could use. So maybe some of you (and some of the lurkers who never sign in but are reading this) should consider it.

Actually i have tried. i've done a couple of simple scripts for a pokemon hack (yes i know the fact that it's pokemon is completely unrelated) but sadly the scrpit won't compile let alone actually work in the game. i've done the code perfectly (according to a tutorial i followed) but it just doesn't want to work with my laptop. i have also tried being a texture artist. but that also failed seeing as i can't make textures that are mechanical like metal panels or machinery. as a matter of fact, the only things i've been able to make (and very shittily i might add) are tiny sprites. to be honest i think the only way i will be a help to this mod is if i do voice acting. unless there is something really easy that the team can give me to do for them (like a small scripting project) i probably won't be much help at all. which really disappoints me because i really did want to help.

But there are a lot of creative people on this forum and for some of them I suspect that the real answer is "I've never tried and I've never considered putting in the time in to try."

Hello. That is me almost to a tee (hey look it rhymed).
I can photoshop/illustrate fairly competently, and would try to help with the interface art. Problem is what you just said: I won't take the time to get good enough to contribute, or spend enough time poking at something to get it good enough.
That's why I can appreciate the amount of effort you guys are putting in, and I will never say "What's taking so long why isn't it done is it dead or what come on hurry up."

Well I was able to help a little in the advertising department recently. I wrote an article on Arwingepedia about Shadows of Lylat. You can check it out here: http://starfox.wikia.com/wiki/Starfox:_Shadows_of_Lylat (http://starfox.wikia.com/wiki/Starfox:_Shadows_of_Lylat)

Yeah well I didn't know anything about the story and gameplay so I had to make due with what I knew. :p

Are you talking about the main picture in the article? Apparently the Sol crew made it. I just found it lying around on Google, lol...

What I'm kinda worried about is that pic at the bottom. I'm not sure it fits in with the gameplay topic. Perhaps I should replace it with a screen shot?
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Fox's_Feather on June 25, 2009, 01:12:52 PM
By the way, if somebody of the SoL crew is passing by, I have a question.

Are you planning to translate the game later? I mean, if you put subtitles or at least the characters speaking screen at the bottom left, do you plan to make it in other languages? Of course you guys won't hire voice actors for each language.

If you do so, I would like to offer my services, as I'm planning to study languages, it would be a good exercise to me.
I could do English -> French, English -> Spanish and English -> Portuguese translation.
It would be a good thing, as many members of the French fandom community I know just doesn't handle English, could be the same for other countries, and I'd be happy to lead them to discover all the efforts you guys are doing to offer us something.

I would be honored as a huge StarFox fan to contribute to the project with the few languages skills I have. =)

Although I think I already asked that question.
There... Just to know...
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: karajorma on June 25, 2009, 06:52:31 PM
The game already features a mechanism to allow translations to be handled fairly painlessly.

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,56811.0.html

Although that is related to a different project translating strings.tbl would have the instant effect of making every single FS2_Open engine game display the interface in that language. French is already done (at least partially) but Spanish and Portuguese would be most welcome.

It would also prove a commitment to the team making it worth considering translating the game itself (i.e dialogue, mission briefs, etc) into that language.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Fox's_Feather on June 25, 2009, 09:22:46 PM
So the game is automatically translated or is it just the interface? Sounds cool however.
Well, if I can do something, let me know!

Hey, I noticed that in my article, someone edited it to say that Shadows of Lylat is not a mod.

:mad2: So which one of you varmits did it?!    (Kiddin, kiddin,:P lol..)

Seriously though, I was under the impression that one package was going to be a mod for freespace and the other would be a standalone game. Is the whole thing just going to be standalone? (Not that I'm complaining or anything..:P)
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: karajorma on June 26, 2009, 08:24:53 AM
Translating strings.tbl automatically translates the interface for all FS2_Open games.

There is a second text file called tstrings.tbl which is specific to each game and if present and correctly set up will translate all the in-game dialogue etc. Freespace2 currently has one and I created one for the BtRL demo at one point using a program I wrote myself. I don't think I still have the program but it only took me a couple of hours to put it together so someone could easily make a tool like that.

Bear in mind I'm not on the team, but if the team want to have the game translatable, all they'd have to do is finish the missions, use a program much like mine and then give the text file to people to translate. They wouldn't have to give out the entire game, just one single text file.

The interface as I've said above is even easier. I can give you the text file now. I've attached it to my post as a zip file. Simply open it in a text editor and start work. As you can see German is already done, French is partially done (I'd advise leaving it alone, I suspect there is a more complete version out there somewhere). You'd have to add new sections for Spanish and Portuguese (I'd advise copying the English one and translating it line by line). Once they are done, send me back the file and I'll make it work in the engine.

Yeah I've known about that for a while. Unfortunely there's this power hungry admin dude there who didn't like the Paths of Fate mod, and I had written an article about it. So outta spite he just tore down all the other articles on fan games I had written. It was was one heck of a scene I can assure you.

But the article was pretty good while it lasted, and it got SoL some publicity, so it wasn't a total loss. :D

I also was confused with the SF Arwing. I never bothered asking, though. There's a noticeable difference between the designs, but it's great this way. :) G-Diffusers still look weird in-game, though.

Also, the Command Arwing is the same as the Assault Arwing. Unless you mean the Arwing II.

Unguessable? Darn... I thought it was the Great Fox's gateway for the Arwings. :(

Ah, yes, A Lion at the Door.  That was a tough one.  My advice is to load up on Harpoons (Hornets and Harpoons if you have them yet) and Subach HL-7s (they have higher shield AND hull DPS over the Prometheus-R) with a Herc II.  The Prometheus-R is IMO the worst cannon in the game.

As for the lag, my six year old computer can handle FS2 Open 3.6.10 on high without any lag at all on 1280x854.  Are you using retail or SCP?  I recommend trying the SCP version using the installer here:

Quote from: gavin83209;121225
Ah, yes, A Lion at the Door.  That was a tough one.  My advice is to load up on Harpoons (Hornets and Harpoons if you have them yet) and Subach HL-7s (they have higher shield AND hull DPS over the Prometheus-R) with a Herc II.  The Prometheus-R is IMO the worst cannon in the game.

As for the lag, my six year old computer can handle FS2 Open 3.6.10 on high without any lag at all on 1280x854.  Are you using retail or SCP?  I recommend trying the SCP version using the installer here:

http://www.fsoinstaller.com/

yeah, i was using hornets and harpoons. i do not recall correctly what laser i was using, but it alternated green and red shots...   i think all i need is some more practice at using counter measures... i suppose smashing the countermeasure button madly when there is a "Launch" alert isn't the correct way, right?
also, is there a way to replay tutorial 5?i'm pretty sure i missed something thanks to my stupid little cousin...

Also, i don't have an idea of what is retail neither SCP.D:

Oooh boy. Okay, here's some quick and dirty tutorial on the various bits of slang the FSO community uses.
"Retail" refers to FS2 as it comes off the CDs or GOG's installer. "Vanilla" usually refers to using FS2_Open, but without any of the mediavp (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=65038.0) enhancements.
SCP is a shorthand for "Source Code Project" (http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php?title=Source_Code_Project), i.e. the team working on the engine. It can also refer to FS2_Open, the massively enhanced version of the FS2 engine produced by the SCP.

To replay missions you have flown already, and to read up on some of the games' backstory, you can use the so-called tech room, which is accessible from the main menu. There's a mission simulator there as well, which allows you top replay missions from the campaign you have flown before.

Now, I don't mean to sound rude, but knowing your hardware is pretty important. Get to know your PC.
Now, if you have problems with the original FS2, I would recommend following this guide (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=61606.0) to set up FS2_Open on your machine. Should you have questions, or problems with FS_Open, ask them either here or at HLP. Someone will be around to give you answers in a matter of minutes (usually).

If you wanna play FS2, you can legally download/buy it for a few bucks here: http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/freespace_2/

was hard-light's version legal then? I know they had one that was reconstructed quite a bit, but I dunno.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: The E on September 20, 2009, 11:29:45 PM
HLP (Via Turey's installer) did offer FS2 for download. Illegally, I might add. As soon as GOG went online, that download option was yanked very, very quickly. The reason HLP did this was that there simply wasn't a good option available to purchase FS2 legally beyond the occasional ebay auction or lucky find in some store's bargain bin.

so, i got freespace 2 yesterday....now i want to play this even more, and i do say FS2 can get pretty hard im on like the 10th mission or so im not sure(part where you get to  fly the gtf pegausus) but yes i took a break from the forums for quite a long time and now im back and look through all this stuff(and new trailer).

this is turning out to look better than the newer starfox games, and the gameplay looks amazing, i showed it to a few of my friends and they said it wasnt gameplay, and then i showed them the open source project for FS2 and theyre jaws dropped, and my pc can play SCP on high, so i probably neednt worry about not being able to play SoL right?

anyways keep up the great work DaB and all other SoL team

thier boosting power was better you didn't have to hold down the damn button like in 64, but they lacked a little turning, but that was replaced with the ability to come to a almost completely brake in air.

also, on the subject on arwings, I don't see why the lazers are faster, I mean, they must of know how fast a bullet goes, why cant the lazers be the same?

but, just a lame guess, ignore me. xD


BTW, i think i've read it here Shadows of Lylat is going to be "stand-alone" or something like that?
does that means there is no need to apply the mod to FS2, after downloaded is just a game to be installed as normal?
if Yes, THANK YOU. i can't freaking use any mods. i've even followed the directions!

you just made a total idiot of yourself -.-; go back and read the rest of the thread before throwing around accusations. i'd welcome you to game-warden but as this is your first post, you really just made a horrible first impression -.-; try not to do this again in the future. i'll explain it for you. The modeler of the arwing for the 64 version is trying to come up with a way for the wings to position WITHOUT using intersecting polygons. and to be honest i like this design better than the first one.

In any case, Welcome to game warden, but try not to make a fool of yourself during your stay
:welcome t

Also, your link is broken (this is also quite a silly move you made)
I think this is what you meant to post?

Sorry, it was rather silly of me to criticize without even reading the author's comments, however the image that I got of the blueprints came directly from the starfox64.com website as the one you posted seems to have came from the players guide (notice how mine doesn't have a gridded background).

One a side note -- i know this has been suggested before -- but an official dev only screenshot thread and a separate discussion thread would greatly help those new to the forum browse this thread.  (Its time consuming to search through the 68 pages of the screenshot thread for actual screenshots)

Well, Arwingpedia hints that the Fichina lab(s) were surrounded by an early warning system, and were also housing crucial military secrets and was guarded. So, if they were to be power supplies, the panels would have to be bigger, and they wouldn't be randomly strewn across the place. However, an early-warning system could be more likely, as they are planet-side sensors, and not likely intended for orbital detection.

Checked Arwingpedia and found this:

The base complex was heavily shielded, stores top secret documents for the Cornerian Army, and ringed by a network of radar antennas. The antennas are part of an early warning system and serve a secondary role of managing local space traffic control. (http://starfox.wikia.com/wiki/Fichina)
So, that means that they are sensor arrays! An early-warning system. :P Well, mystery solved. XD

And they used what as reference?Their imagination?
Also, if it had "crucial military secrets" wouldn't it have some decent defenses?
i mean, the enemy forces they found there were a few Invaders. Even a single wing of Cornerian Fighters could sanitize that place... well, at least until Star Wolf arrived, but they had clearly been sent to take out StarFox.

One would think. If Star Fox wanted, they could single handedly wipe out all Cornerian and Venomian ships in the entire system. So...  for Corneria to try to hide their secrets under the guise of an innocent research station is a nice strategy, but they screwed up big time. And Katina had massive gun placements aimed at space! Appareantly, Corneria learned to cut spending and loss by not upgrading defenses. Defenses which could be torn down within minutes. :/ Somehow, I tend to think Bill's fighters would do better than other Cornerian fighter squadrons. Corneria is always void of allied fighters. It seems that only in specific missions, Cornerian pilots manage to appear. The army must really be incompetant to not keep their pilots alive. :/ So, what sould one expect by placing defenses around top secret information? It'll only get stolen, and cost money ond lives in the loss of the base. :/

Alright.
About the lack of cornerian pilots, it's probably due to the fact Venom had taken over macbeth(where they produce equipment, ships and all that crap.), leaving them with very few fighters, Quickly mopped up by venomians's larger numbers.
And if you come to think of it, the Pilots at Katina were the Elite of the elite, and managed to hold off an overwhelming venomian force for quite a while, not exactly with proper equipment.
(Do remember that their fighters have weak hull plating, low speed & maneuverability and Only the Standard green laser as weaponry.And even if they had Nova bombs they could not use them anyway because they would just end up killing themselves.)I bet some of them are better pilots than your wingmates, what's not that hard actually.

Not exactly vaporware. The team is busily working, and have promised that (if they were to shut it down) they would come out and say so.

Also, the mods of BMS already said that, assuming they continue at their current pace, the game will be out, at the latest, in about 11 months from now.

Trust me here, it's not as easy as it looks. There's a boatload of art content to make while working around the limitations of an aging engine, even with all the awesome improvements the SCP team make to it.

First off when did the SoL Team officially state a release date? To my knowledge we have not. If you have proof please show me.

As for the only communication from devs.... really? Throughout my time as a member of the SoL Team I have tried my best to be there for the community and get them involved and keep them informed as much as its healthy for the community. I take that as a personal insult.

As for updates we are working on getting the community more information about whats going on. Just keep looking to the Official Website (http://www.shadowsoflylat.net/). We are wanting to add a new section under News that will be like a blog. Plus we want to make it so the official website has all the screenshots and this thread is just to comment about them. That way its easier for new comers to see all the screenies.

You have to understand though that every member has their own responsibilities and that each member has a different amount of time to devote to that. Along with the fact that circumstances for each member will change even from day to day. I would love to be able to sit down everyday and work on this project as a job and get paid but that's not how it is.

I hope you don't think I am acting like a "douche" I am just posting in reply to your post. Also hopefully the other members of the forum will be excited about some of the stuff.

additional hi-res textures (resolution about 2560x2560 and higher) and the graphics are above average.

and the engine supports bump and parallax mapping, as far as i know (I don't expect Parallax Occlusion and DX11 Tesselation, but the features it includes can still view very nice)

Post by: Flaming Cobra on December 31, 2010, 10:24:09 PM
Did anyone else notice that in the very first screenshot the arwing had TWO lasers?

And by all of them except the Adventures and Command arwings, does that mean the Star Fox 2 arwings will also be available?


DaBrain Said:
Quote
If the shots look better than in Starfox64, that's good. Even though there are still a few things in SF64 we still couldn't do.

The cool asteroid bursting. Waves on the water when you get close to it with your Arwing. Or even a simple star map, you can see your progress on.
(So we can't even beat the SNES game here...)

DaBrain, I have a hypothesis on how Nintendo pulled off the wave effect. When one of the Arwing's wings gets within a certain distance from the water, the wave effect appears as a simple sprite next to the tip of the wing. This is certainly within the limits of the Nintendo 64's hardware. The sprite would also work because that effect is never seen from an angle other then directly behind the Arwing. So it's 2D rather than 3D.

However, your problem is that a simple sprite wouldn't work for Shadows of Lylat, as that effect might have to be viewed from a different angle (like if another Arwing was viewing that Arwing produce the wave effect in multiplayer), right? In that case, a sprite won't work because sprites can't be rotated and viewed from a different angle because they are 2D. Unfortunately, I myself have no solution to the problem, since I don't think a 3D model would work very well for that particular effect. And I know next to nothing about special effects.

Again, I'm not a professional and I know next to nothing about special effects, but that's just what I came up with. I'm sorry if your problem in producing the wave effect has to do with some other aspect entirely.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Fox_McCloud3232 on January 01, 2011, 09:24:11 PM
Well there is one more theory that i can supply for the water effect,

one way of fixing this  "sprite issue" would be to have it deploy multiple versions of a single sprite that get smaller from the start and bigger at the end. and another thing that the N64 did was have 2D sprites that always faced the camera no matter what direction they were being viewed from, making a 3D effect even though they were 2D. So if being viewed in multiplayer, those water effects would still appear 3D to the person in another arwing, as well as the person in the arwing causing the effect, because the sprite is set to be viewed at the same  angle no matter what camera is viewing it..

Post by: Andross on January 02, 2011, 02:20:16 AM
They're a fairly common tactic used right throughout the gaming industry, and conceptually they're not that difficult; the computer works out where you are in relation to the sprite and then turn the sprite in that direction. The effect is used frequently in SF64 for things like the map. But it's a pretty basic effect that I'm pretty sure that the SOL team already knows all about, so there must be another reason why they can't do it.

BTW Psygonis, can you make that Krystal image smaller? it's stretching my screen WAAYYY off the sides

Post by: Flaming Cobra on January 02, 2011, 06:47:36 AM
Fox, I know exactly what you're talking about. The same technique was used in Super Mario 64. Those might LOOK 3D to the undiscerning eye, but they're actually flat.

BTW, didn't Da say something about not being able to destroy asteroids somewhere in this thread?
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Fox_McCloud3232 on January 02, 2011, 09:45:53 AM
yes but it was a LONG time ago, years ago i believe. so they've probably figured out that a simple debris script would work for that, or a model transform script if the object has been hit, create smaller asteroid models and so on, check what model said asteroid is (first hit, spawn second wave, second hit, spawn third wave, third hit destroy smallest model completely). that's how i see the solution anyway...
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Flaming Cobra on January 02, 2011, 03:06:37 PM

An asteroid can be placed on a map Very easily on a mission. And making the field exactly like you want it(extension, ammount of asteroids) takes only a couple of minutes more.
I can't rememeber Da saying anything about not being able to destroy asteroids though...

Is it possible to make some units vulnerable to only a certain type of weapon?
Or in this case, biggest asteroids only vulnerable to smart bombs or something. Or other weapons if there is.
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Fox_McCloud3232 on January 05, 2011, 12:37:05 AM
there's probably already a line of code for that. it would be pretty simple if you just had an enemy script modified so that there was no weapons and or flight path. since bosses have that vulnerability portion shouldn't transposing that same piece of code over to the asteroid work just as well?
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Andross on January 05, 2011, 12:55:17 AM
In my experience with game coding (Which is admittedly pretty small) you can do pretty much anything you want, the problem is you can end up with massive scripts for small common events, and be restricted to doing things that are very uneconomical with respect to computer resources, so it's less a matter of what you can do as what it's feasible to do (Any one jump in and correct me here).
Title: Screenshot thread!
Post by: Scourge of Ages on January 06, 2011, 07:43:45 AM
I'm glad you asked that, Feather!

In the most recent released build of FSO (the game engine), there is a new feature that allows modders to give ships and even subsystems on those ships armor classes! That means that it is very easy to create a ship that can only be damaged significantly by a specific weapon or type of weapon.
Also there's is a trigger you can use in missions that if a certain subsystem or goup of subsystems on a ship are destroyed, the whole ship goes kaboom!

There's a lot of very cool stuff happening.

You might not want to over-use that thought, especially for bosses. The whole "weakspot" thing got pretty old in term of gameplay. It's better to destroy bosses by just throwing a rain of fire. :)
OR, you could add like a really tiny spot on each enemy ship, very hard to reach, that could indeed allow a one-shot. That would be fantastic. Add bonus for that too. It would make a difference between newbs scores and pro players score. :pimp:

tiny untargetable fragile subsystem...
then in FRED, create an event so when it gets destroyed, the ship selfdestructs... Yea, i think that would be very simple. But i'm not sure it is possible for just the Subsystem to be untargetable... or then no targeting systems to the player? ...okay, i'll stop rambling

Has anyone seen this image yet?

Husky unit, cover the base.


And as far as I remember, SoL team, lasers don't come out of the wings. They come out of the blue things.

Guessing that since the infyrno missile is remotely detonated, that was the basis for the nova bomb and its old model.

Guessing that since the tempest is still a selectable weapon, it has been converted to a new, never before seen star fox weapon.

-------------------------------

looking through the old screenshots thread I see there was also a GF Plasma Cannon. I might be wrong, but does that stand for "Great Fox Plasma Cannon?" On my Arwing?

I am assuming the Rapid Fire Laser also still exists.

And since the subach is the "photon laser" mentioned in the very first screenshot of this thread, then the Prometheus must be the "Standard laser" mentioned in the very first screenshot of this thread.

But I later found out it was from the OLD Screenshot thread

---------------------------

Remember Fox's Feather, they're not going to give us anything until AFTER Star Fox 64 3D is released in ALL regions, including the US. So whatever SoL Team gives out will be eclipsed by a new Nintendo Star Fox game.

That's kind of what happened with FreeSpace 2 and Descent 2 I think............. or was it Descent 3? hmmmmmmm...........

The Assault Arwing on a plain white background would be appreciated as well.

As much as I love the Arwing, will the Landmaster be making an appearance on Shadows of Lylat?:nervous:

Grindor, try and keep your posts on requests and other items of interest in their relevant threads (or create a new one if necessary), so this way the official development screenshot thread is less cluttered. Also, for those of us still lurking around the forums, we won't unnecessarily get our hopes up every time we see that the screenshot thread has new posts.

And IIRC, there won't be any playable landmaster segments to the game as the FS2 engine is primarily designed for space/air gameplay. From my understanding, introducing player controlled land-based vehicles and similar that are restricted and reactive to terrain is beyond the scope of this mod and engine. Correct me if I'm wrong though, guys.

He's stating that probably the most similar Arwing to Command's may be the one from SF64. I'd say Adventures myself, becasue it is quite smooth, however the sharp traingle g-diffusers really allow it to be look nearly the same as the 64 arwings.

Glad to determine a brand new pic DB! Maybe we ought to have two subjects though? Or host a gallery on Flickr of all of the presently launched SoL pictures to ensure that finding them is not an problem?

(Personally, i think this is a launch tunnel btw. Straight out of the SNES game. SCRAMBLE!)

I have seen many posts in the past complaining about browser memory usage. So, the idea of this thread is to compare each user browser about:memory page, to see where the memory is going and perhaps try to optimize it. Additionally, some users might not be aware of the existence of the about:memory page. I think this can be fun, educational and helpful at the same time.

I am not an expert on memory usage, but I think that together we can figure out some things. For instance, as you can see under the storage section in the screenshot below, that lazarus.sqlite database is using 60Mb.



Lazarus is an extension that saves what you type in forms, so in case the browser crashes you can recover the text. It is a very useful add-on, however 60Mb is too much to trade. So I opened Lazarus Database preferences and used the feature to Clean The Database, then restarted the browser. I didn't help. So I opened my FF profile and deleted the lazarus.sqlite. I probably could have done through Lazarus preferences as well. Anyways, I have gained 60 Mb in my Firefox RAM usage.

So much awesome stuff in this game so far - I am still amazed that the games does not take up more that a bit over 5 gigs...

My horse is freekin' Chuck Norris reincarnated - it takes on dragons, mammoths, giants, spiders, bandits, imperials etc. Sometimes I spend more time fighting my war out of some brawl started by this insane pony of mine, than I do questing!

A cool moment was while roaming around in the forests - I saw this hut - and I kinda choked up a bit. No idea what happened, but I guess this husband and wife was attached by a dragon - one of then kneeling over the other - was a rare moment where i just stood there, looking at it - thinking about how god damn awesome a game this is...
