*GASP*

That new ship looks incredible... fast, sleek and colorful.

Very nice job, but is THIS the blue change? Or is there more?

. . . I really don't know whether or not to believe this.

This seems like an April Fools joke almost, but I can understand why there might have been a change to avoid any legality issues.

Only thing is, changing names and text ingame after the project is made could always be done to avoid copyright infringement, so I dunno if this is legitimate or not.

If it is, I'm not saying this is bad. I'm just saying that this seems like a pretty extreme change.

It's not just names and text, the issue is also likenesses.

Yeah... but didn't Q-Games say that as long as this isn't used for profit it's fine?

I mean, nothing was officially done, but I doubt Nintendo would do anything like this for a mod =/

No! just no.:hoppingma

This better be a joke... because if it's not, you've just ruined my whole Day, Month, Year and all the time I've invested on this forum. If you really MUST change the project (& I seriously doubt that Nintendo would do ANYTHING about it if you didn't), then at least think up something a bit more original: BattleStarFox? Just no!:no::no::no:

Seriously, I haven't been this disappointed since I found out that Rare was switching to Microsoft, and that Nintendo was never going to get a 3rd Banjo-Kazooie! And Believe me, I was pretty upset about that.:no::no::no:

Having said all that, it is April fools day, You guys have been known to pull jokes before now... And lastly, most impotently, if you guys really were changing things, you WOULD NOT have just used some shoddy Photoshop effects, you would have done a proper remodel.

But you did have me going for several minutes there.

you may have said that you changed the name to "Battlestarfox" to avoid "copyright issues" and that the name change isn't some sort of April fools joke (which I'm not ready to accept by the way) but there is no way that you are going to get anyone to believe that those ships are going to be in the game. I mean look at the additions to the Greatfox (err um that is the Great Battlestar BS-91 Foxia) they are just extra thrusters cut off of a different ship and  set in place then poorly blended together. But it does makes for a good joke.:lol:

Nice April Fool :)

You just ruined some hopes by playing so with people's feeling... That's HORRIBLE.
I'm having a bad day. :)

Lol, no, it's fine, nice one.

EDIT: If you squint really hard at the modified ARWING (underlined Bolded and italiced for emphasis) model, you can just see Fox sitting in the cockpit!:naughty::biggrin1:

. . .that new boss looks alright I guess... but I still think that this is all a little too much.

I don't want, nor will I, believe that this is truly where SoL is going until I see something more concrete.

Right now, I feel somewhere between disappointed and downtrodden. Just as a StarFox mod, this game held so much promise. Now... I dunno, it just seems like a stupid stunt to pull so far into the project.

I'm really shocked, and I pray to god this isn't real.

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! (I keep saying NO! for 20 minutes) Why must you change the project! Ask nintendo! But if this is an april fools joke, you exceed all expectations. But if not, then this is my last post on this darned forum. I'm definitely not going to play it if this is truly what had become of Star Fox - Shadows of Lylat. And I don't think anyone would, either.

I don't know what you're complaining about ArwingT, the Arwiper Mk. II (Mk. VII on the way also) is a cool ship, very smooth to play, you'll love it! ;)

Post by: Shain Asuka on April 01, 2009, 10:54:56 PM
Thinking back on the topic of copyright... won't you have to change the name "Lylat"? for that is a StarFox specific name... Or is that the hint...

It's not real--if it really is, I'll take a leaf from Arwing-T's book.

But at worst, Nintendo would just demand that the Sol crew discontinued the game. If the Sol crew changes the game, half the people following this project won't come back. But seriously, It was April fools day, bad timing if you wanted to make a serious change.

BTW: Axem, shouldn't it be the Battlestar BS-64 Foxia?

Post by: Star Yoshi on April 02, 2009, 12:45:36 AM
If this is an elaborate punk, I'd have to say that the team has earned my respect.

However, as I said before, I'm not believing any of this until I see some ingame footage or the first portion of the game using all this. As I've said before, this seems to be quite a bold stunt to pull off so far into the project. As was said as well, picking April 1st as a "true update" day is not the smartest of things to do.

Now, back to the top of my post. If this is a hoax, congratulations on riling me up enough to get angry. If this is real, don't expect me to play this game.

It will be more of a spoof than an actual game, and I'll lose the respect I hold for all of you for your work on this project up until now.

Ah, you guys. :doubtful:

You forgot the cardinal rule of April 1st:
"If something seems odd, don't believe it until April 2nd."

And the cardinal's little brother:
"If you suspect something is an april fool's joke, keep quiet about it, so we can all enjoy watching people freak out."

And a quick addendum:
"In this international world, remember to allow at least 23 hours before and after April 1st for jokes to begin and end."

I must confess, you had me going for a full 2 hours before I realized that the art work was fudged. Good one Sol crew.

reached a dead end T_T
can't make it in a decent size, requiring a HUGE amount of spaces.
as you know, Gamewarden automatically deletes excessive spaces in a message.
i can't get the same precision with Underline, so, i can't do it right.

even though this was an April Fool's joke,i think the Arwiper MK2 should still be in the game and the Foxia too!maybe during the game the Star Fox team could be in a hard battle and they receive reinforcement help from another team that could seem like a cheap knock off of the Star Fox team and ships
