You go dude!

And remember, if you are ever unhappy with your past work, you can always remaster it later, you can't learn if you don't practice.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project


You didn't re-create this from scratch, did you? Just thinking about the Deneb III landscape in your fantastic ST:R ending video. ;)

I'm also thinking about how you'd go about this, assuming this is the FS2 intro cutscene - the Herc popping out of thin air is the one issue about that cutscene I remember best, but there appear to be other issues.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
Dealing with the Herc popping into existence is an easy problem to solve. Instead of just appearing over the damaged Orion, it flies in from behind it it. Boom. Solved. Most of the other canon inconsistencies like various ships being present have been "solved" by both ST:R and Deneb III campaigns and/or other fanon in terms of the Lucifer port-side beam.

I also take issue with the Wiki saying the Herc landing would be impossible and that it should have left a giant crater with nothing recognizable left. The Herc that gets shot down clearly still has several thrusters working even though is spews smoke all over the frame. One could assume a moderately chaotic but recoverable descent (hah! PUN) was possible.

Not to mention it's a space-future-tech space-fighter, who knows what else it might have in store to avoid going splat on a planet, or shield its pilot from g-forces.

If either one of you can rewrite that line so that it doesn't look like your point of view isn't a tacked-on argument, I don't think anyone will notice. :p

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
Ten years ago... there was an idea. I'm halfway done. :) This marks the last of my FS1 upgrades. I've done all the FS1 CB and Tech anims, the mainhalls, the medals and logos.. and finally, all the cutscenes.


It's time boys and girls.. FS2 cutscenes are officially in development.

Many thanks to Oddgrim for the Shivan model and several height maps, Styxx for the Marine model, Nyctaeus for quick turn-around on the Orion, and Axem for the new Elysium.

Many un-thanks to the haters. You know who you are.

Kinda a bit too dark to see anything in the beginning, but that can be fixed with messing with the brightness setting, right?

I love how new models, lighting effects, particles and other modern stuff swiftly blends with still appropiately retro vibe. This captures spirit of FS well.

Also... Styxx remade marine models? I wasn't aware that's his work. When did he make them?

Pretty sure it was Styxx. I've had that model since 2011.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
I'm pretty sure that Styxx made the Marine models for MT. At one point the Shivans attempted to board the Apocalypse, in the same way they boarded the Iceni in FS2. IIRC the models were supposed to be used for Headanims but I'm not sure. Possible that he planned to make it a full cutscene too.

For what it's worth, it looks like YouTube murdered my colors with its awful compression. That said, the scene is meant to be dark.
