@Flaming Cobra
I guess it just always looked big to me in her SF2 sprites. :nervous:

@Unknown Target
Yeah the Fleet Ops engine originated from Star Trek: Armada II. It's pretty much a modern version of it that supports things found in modern games: http://www.fleetops.net/home.html

@Brockenstein
Yeah the Fur effects in Maya are not very friendly... Not to mention they increase render times by like...... 300%. :shaking:
I think I am going to try and use either standard bump maps or normal maps to get fur effects as a substitute.

Okay. Which part don't you understand in "Real Time Strategy" ?
Did he ever say you would solo fly in your missions ?

Krystal will probably be more like a hero unit among your troops. Much like Jim Raynor in Starcraft.
Amiright?
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

As Fox's Feather said, it's a Real Time Strategy game and you'll actually be commanding multiple fighter craft at once in addition to the characters. You'll mostly be commanding as Krystal but here's a list of some other characters you'll get to shoot down enemies with:

- Fay
- Bill Grey
- Fox McCloud
- Falco
- Miyu


Upppdaaateeee!
A new mysterious ship that will appear in the game... go ahead and try to guess what it is:

@Scourge of Ages
Pretty close guess. biggrin

@Brockenstein
Needs some more awesome Pyramid to be Goa'uld. In terms of function though it probably would be something the Goa'uld would like their tentacles on. :nod:

Great idea ( I remember saying something about a Starfox RTS about a year ago.. that and "starfox racers" xD )

Finally letting the females and other NPC's be playable characters, thank you. I always wanted to be Bill for some reason, leading the "Bulldog and Husky" units as he would say.

Anyway - thanks for inspiring me to get my ass back into modeling. I wasn't feeling to hype today til I saw this thread. :3

edit- LOL found the thread http://www.game-warden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8010

AAAAAHHH WHAT THE HELL THE VIDEO JUST ENDS WHEN IT GETS AWESOME ?!

Anyway, its looking waaay good. Though, Cornerian ships all look the same, it looks disturbing.
And the little venomian ships were Harlocks right? I think you should make them a bit bigger, they looked ridiculous compared to cornerian ships.

Yeah those were Harlocks, I can make them bigger no problem. :naughty:

Here's some music to listen to while I wrap up debugging a demo:

Monarchy One really got better since Project Kursed too. I mean it was nice back then, but now it really sounds professional.

Also, talking about music, I'm just wondering, will they just play one by one, or is there some kind of system that triggers them depending on the situation ?
That's quite recent in strategy games, RTS among them. Don't know if you ever played Red Alert 3, IMO it was not as good as the two first for the gameplay, but I really liked that system triggering music depending on the threat level.

I mean when you started the game there was a calm music, yet tenseful that helped to build up a nervous ambiant at the wake of a battle, then at the first units skirmishing there were a more rocking music, and if there was a huge battle, a really dynamic music that pulled you in the heat of the fightings, plus it was depending on wether you were losing or winning.

So if ever it happens to be possible, it would be really cool. :)
