Why are the Shivans in the last mission green? :confused:

Their shield systems are deactivated? </handwavium>

IIRC the green comes from the Lucy in the original ending cutscene.

I thought it was a result of them being in subspace. Of course shivans were originally supposed to be green early in fs development.

Makes as much sense as anything else I can think of.

Ehh... if the thread was an April Fools joke, you were about four days too early. :p

Not this thread. The green Shivans are real (I'll post a screenshot in an hour or two when I have my good computer).

The posts are a little messed up. That's the April Fool's joke.

Well, they were.  Unfortunately, a lot of rather vocal people didn't like them.

They're not upside-down in Firefox, at least not for me.
