Herc II at the front be like nyoom. :lol:

It's easier to count the number of ship models in that screenshot that haven't been remade. Let that sink in.

Many thanks to all the people who contributed to the text/blueprints in making this and also a big thanks to Axem who made the planet bitmaps.

I like the 'graph depicting nothing' and the running joke about a retractable neck. Oh, and now we've got baseball bat jokes - classic. "Warranty void if attempted" - also a classic.

The laser turret section sounds like a parody of "The Pentagon Wars".

Obligatory Spaceballs reference.

Oh, and the cutscene looks great too.

love the text entries. :D

Hidden Text: Show
how come my beam text entry is a quote with my handle? But none of the others are quotes with the submiter's handle/name? just asking.   :wtf:

EDIT: wait, does this mean I exist in the FS universe now? Uh oh.  :shaking: :warp:

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
Fantastic work, MJN! And congratulations on incorporating as a contractor on the Colossus project. Those were some excellent easter eggs in that list, everybody pause and read 'em   :lol:

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
Aw, man, I'm still waiting for Strygon to get back to me with my updated Su-tehp Supervisory Systems logo because I forgot to hyphenate my name on the first draft.

Not that anybody but me cares about such a piffling minor detail but, y'know, I care.

Mjn, if we notice any editing suggestions, do you want us to PM you? Or is this cutscene finalized? Or...are you annoyed with me enough already?

EDIT: Just watched the cutscene again and I just noticed something: the Ganymede has animated forklift prongs! AWESOME.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
My response as I watched the video:


Triumphant music included.

You will find a related comment by me on YouTube, which has the same effect. :D

The occasional misspelling doesn't detract from the cutscene, and I think it brings its own charm. Outstanding work.

I forgot to PM you about it but since I was supposed to have finished the blueprints by sunday, I couldn't really get bothered to then still do these pixel perfect measurements for the name of the logo you requested, since no one would be able to tell such a microscopic deviation anyway. I told him to use my last draft, which had the hyphen. In fact, look at the logo section and you'll find it there.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
These aren't really crowd pleasers, but here you go. End Part 2 both A and B.

Please be aware these are highly stylized and not physically accurate. The originals are also this way and I opted to keep that. If I went for full physical accuracy, the earth/moon would be in complete shadow almost the entire time.

Yeah, just looked at the cutscene multiple times and my name on my logo isn't hyphenated. Eh, no one will notice it but me and it's a minor thing. There are a couple of hardly noticeable misspellings here and there, but overall this cutscene is an exceptional piece of work.

And while the End Part 2A and 2B cutscenes aren't all that flashy (or physically accurate for that matter as Mjn admitted), they are faithful to the originals and that's what matters most.

As for flashy (or supernova-y, as the case may be), we still have End Part 1 coming up. I really want to see what Mjn does with those juggernauts making Capella go boom.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
Now that you've pointed out the oddities of the original cutscenes on Discord, I will now see EndPart2A and repeatedly think, "the sun is dancing on the water."

That Colossus cutscene is absolutely stellar. I think you should be proud of how it turned out and all your hard work on this project. From a long time fan of this series, thank you!!
