Title: Shadows of Lylat (aka Star Fox Mod) Asset Release
Post by: Axem on July 24, 2012, 06:31:28 pm
Well, it wasn't the way we wanted to release, but its better than no release at all.

Shadows of Lylat was the first mod team I ever joined. It was the first mod team a lot of us had joined actually. We barely knew how to model or how to texture, but we learned. You can really see this just in the models of the game. The quality goes anywhere from "noob's first model" to "I'm getting the hang of this" to "Feast on the normal map baked glory that is this ship". So try to understand why there can be quite the quality disparity with some of the models.

So enjoy this asset release! It is split into two parts: Working Mod Prototype and Work in Progress.

SoL was going to be a Total Conversion, not requiring FreeSpace, but we didn't get that far. It was working standalone, but with Volition's VPs still there keeping it propped up. So this "release" requires a full FreeSpace installation, (http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/freespace_2) FreeSpace Open (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=80754.0) and the mediavps (3.6.12 works fine!). (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?board=120.0)

I've included some VERY rough missions that took me a few hours to make. There's also some prototype missions included as well. None of that is what the final gameplay was going to be like. Just experiments and stuff for people to play with.

The Work In Progress is all of our in progress work. I didn't really sort much of it. Some of the WIP stuff has been finished and some of it is still quite incomplete.

I've tried my best to credit everyone for their work, I may have forgotten some ships or miscredited people's work... I apologize in advance for these errors!

All of the assets are released under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. Basically you can use and modify our works however you like, you just can't make a profit off of it. Also it'd be really pro if you told us if you're using this stuff. It'd be neat to see where this stuff ends up.

Now get cracking! I want to see this stuff get used in a finished product!

If you have any questions or some issues, I'll try to help you out the best I can.

Mod Installation Guidelines:

Ensure you have a working installation of a FreeSpace installation, (http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/freespace_2) FreeSpace Open + Launcher (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=80754.0) and the FreeSpace Upgrade mediavps. (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?board=120.0)
Extract the /SoL/ folder from the archive to your root FreeSpace Folder.
Select the mod from the launcher and hit play.

Don't expect too much! Remember, its unfinished for a reason!

Ehh... Too bad, so many great mods died :(, but thanks for the assets anyway.

Ha ha! Wait that's not right...  :(

Well I knew it was dead for a while, and was just waiting for this release. Most of these assets will appear in Mando's and my mod, "semi-untitled StarFox mod, currently 'StarFox: Through the Void (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=81149.0)'".

Those lyrics look like Nuke cooked them up, lol:

(OK well maybe Nuke would have some alterations)

Quote
Black Sabbath/Into the Void

Rocket engines burning fuel so fast
Up into the night sky they blast
Through the universe the engines whine
Could it be the end of man and time.
Back on Earth the flame of life burns low
Everywhere is misery and woe
Pollution kills the air, the land and sea
Man prepares to meet his destiny.

Rocket engines burning fuel so fast
Up into the black sky so vast
Burning metal through the atmosphere
Earth remains in worry, hate and fear
With the hateful battles raging on
Rockets flying to the glowing sun.
Through the empires of eternal void
Freedom from the final suicide.

Freedom fighters sent out to the sun
Escape from brainwashed minds and pollution.
Leave the earth to all its sin and hate
Find another world where freedom waits.

Past the stars in fields of ancient void
Through the shields of darkness where they find
Love upon a land a world unknown
Where the sons of freedom make their home.

Leave the earth to Satan and his slaves
Leave them to their future in their graves
Make a home where love is there to stay
Peace and happiness in every day.

yes, it is really sad about the demise of SOL, however, like scourge said, this is a boost to my mod, as larger ships will be of great use to me, and now we have most of the modern shipset

2. when putting a rocket engine on something it is better to put a nuke at the other end of that something.

This is a sad day.  :(  I was looking forward to SoL.  But hell, Axem, you guys did an awesome job on what you did produce.

The skyboxes are very pretty. There's a lot fewer finished ships than I expected, though. My game crashed early in the Corneria test mission, but Sector Y was pretty fun.

I think we had more, but they got pulled out for whatever reason when we made the switch to SVN. They should be in the WIP folder archive, I think they just need proper converting.

I also noticed some crashing, the only thing I notice that causes it is the nova bomb explosion, but sometimes it works anyway...

I don't know what to do about my life anymore...
For crying out loud, SoL was the Mod/TC that inspired me to start work on my own project. Damn, this is a real morale killer. Well, at least not all is lost I guess.

Silly question: can somebody open up c_container1.pof and tell me if those docking points are supposed to be where they are? If not, how can I fix them?
(I'm not so good with PCS2)
Title: Re: Shadows of Lylat (aka Star Fox Mod) Asset Release
Post by: Axem on August 12, 2012, 10:19:14 pm
Haha, what the heck.

It looks like you just need to use the transform button to rotate the container 90 degrees on the Y-Axis while you have the subobjects selected.

Post by: Scourge of Ages on August 12, 2012, 10:55:30 pm
That worked much better than trying to manually reposition the points themselves. Thanks!

I've never actually enjoyed Nintendo products, I'm a Sega fan-boy myself, but the SoL project was definitely something of a motivational inspiration for me.

Bumping: I can't get the links to download all the way for some reason. Tried Chrome and Firefox. My internet should be fine, I think. Anyone who got the assets mind mirroring it?

Also constantly getting Network Error when trying to download, after about 20 minutes

EDIT: Btw, isn't there a place with higher upload speeds you can send this to? I'm getting about 40kb/s
Title: Re: Shadows of Lylat (aka Star Fox Mod) Asset Release

How odd! The links work for me...

Anyway, I have the asset release (http://lazymodders.fsmods.net/releases/sol/SoL.7z) mirrored here. Let me know if you're looking for the WIP release.

Has anyone done anything with these yet?

Something's iffy with the Great Fox. I think it spins around crazy when it tries to attack. :(

EDIT: It has no weapon points. Is that the problem?
