Starfox RTS

It's been a long time since I popped by here on SoL. Some might vaguely remember my name attached to the mod known as "Project Kursed" that faded away several years ago. Ever since I detached myself from that I've spent my time learning to make models and work with various game engines. I've deemed my abilities acceptable now to resurrect a Starfox idea I've had for years now.

The goal of this game is to present Starfox in a psudeo-RTS style game. Players will choose their fighter pilots, command a squadron, and customize and upgrade the fighter craft in their squadron. The single player campaign will follow the exploits of Krystal as she leaves the Starfox team and joins the Cornerian Army. The story will unfold with her discovering some secrets of her past, most notably the fate of her homeworld Cerinia as the Cornerian army begins uncovering ruins of her extinct species. Multiplater and Custom battles will allow players to assume the role of several different factions in addition to the Cornerian army, such as Andross' forces and the Aparoids. Players will construct bases, build up an economy, and field armies of ships as they do battle.

I've no release date yet, though I plan on releasing playable demos regularly. As the saying goes, "It's done when it's done."

Looking good!
I wish you to complete it indeed. :)
In the Depths of Lylat, an old Planet is dying...
Forgotten for centuries in the History of Lylat, Taklys vanishes place after place, until no Life lasts anymore on it\'s surface...
Bannished by the Cornuseans milleniums ago, Cursed by the Wrath of Andross nowadays, some of the remaining Shadamars alive now stand up by the cornerian side to revenge!

Well I don't think I'd consider it a race... though I'll do my best to finish as soon as possible of course.  :nod:

Indeed, I'm making all the models for this game. :nod:

I just finished up the model for General Pepper today, going to try and get him all animated in the next few days hopefully.

Taking time for amazing quality is worth a lot more than rushing to get it out fast.

I LOVE YOU UNDYING NEPHALIM !

I was following your Project Kursed as well on your board. (too bad it ended up abandonned)
But I guess it was for the better because you're coming with THIS !
I'm a fanatic of RTS games, so StarFox + RTS = pure winsauce.

Is it a mod from some other game ? Or are you using an engine to build up everything ?

Also, lol'd at Marek.
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

It is a bit unfortunate PK ended up going under, though many of the things I threw into that are going to show up in this. The problem was mostly that no one was doing their part and thus nothing was getting done, and whenever I'd go out of my way to do something like make a 3D model the actual 3D modelers would get upset and say it's not the right style, it's their job, etc etc.

Technically it could be considered a mod, though the engine is prepping to go standalone and open source. More information on it can be found here: http://www.fleetops.net/home.html
If you like RTS's I actually highly recommend trying Fleet Operations, as well as my other RTS I made: http://www.moddb.com/mods/sigma . Might give some insight into how the Starfox one will look and feel.

On another note, is it possible to hide an image on these forums in spoiler wraps so they don't take up lots of space on the thread? Until then forgive me for the pictures stretching out the page.... :nervous:

This actually looks pretty cool, Undying.
And actually, Unknown Target on the Hard-Light forum just recently posted a plan for something similar in concept. Just FYI, maybe you can help each other.
