Was looking thru some old notes and ran across some of the loose ideas we had for the mod the above skins were going to be for.

Looks like we had the idea to have Komet appear in Sky King's outfit until the team completed the "Save Bullet" FF mission. After that, he'd appear in a costume like Bullet's to show a change in the time stream. Also, Pinstripe was going to be an Italian Nazi supporter and Law would be the successor to the Belle of Vichy.

Characters such as Quetzi, Green Genie, El Diablo, Order, Black Bird, and a few others were going to be either deceased or unpowered resistance fighters. Sokov and the Red Witch were members of the Resistance. Also looks like we were uncertain about Sea Urchin because I have notes about her being in the Resistance but I also have a Nazi alt version idea of her called Molluske.

The following characters we had come up with their Nazi counterparts names:

Minute Man - Sturmsoldat (wasn't a leader or Frank Stiles)
Ant - das Insekt
Tonbstone - Totenkopf
Man-Bot - das Maschine
Liberty Lad - H-J Held (H-J is short for Hitlerjugend, the kid military)
Eve - Naturemadchen
Alchemiss - die Hexe
Sea Urchin - Molluske?
Microwave - Todestrahl
Iron Ox - Panzerfaust

I've also got the names Partikeltreiber and das Gesetz but I've no idea who their FF equivelents are.

That's all I got folks. If MeshMatters was still around and I remembered my password (I don't), I might have more but this is all I got now.

It's a very interesting alternate reality tale, DJ. It's a shame you couldn't finish it. Anyway, thanks for sharing the info.

Grenadier's Punisher with a body transplant from Bearded-In-Lair's Freedom Fighter. I've never been able to get the FF1 version to work, but this looks pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Now DJ's put the bar so high, the rest of us are really gonna have to work.

And the characters Partikeltreiber and das Gesetz are Supercollider and Law.

Using the Punisher Gren/Bearded scope, and creating a skin using the original Minuteman as a base, and some of Ink's ideas for his 2002 skins, here we have Minuteman 2017.



V2, with more red.

This was a private project, I just realized that it was appropriate for the challenge. My pouchtastic '90s version is in the works (hands still shake too much).

And I didn't mention that Iron Oxette is a kittbashed skin utilizing the original Iron Ox skin. The final version will be original.

Iron Oxette is fantastic, as is MM!  :D

DJ, this sounds quite awesome!  It's a shame it never came together.

BG, combine the fact Tiobe disappeared just as we started really fleshing things out, the fact I don't know a lick about modding, and the fact we were going to try and insert the missions into the original game while also changing some of those missions...we probably were biting off more than we could chew to begin with.

Great work, guys!

Too bad Tiobe left… both for the mod, of course, and for the truly shameful lack of Oscar Wilde references since.

Haha, well, perhaps, but it's still a shame, DJ.  Of course, I miss Tiobe in general, and you're right Epi, there is a shameful lack of Oscar Wilde references these days.  I'd praise you for plain speaking, but a man who can call a spade a spade should be forced to use one.

Thanks JJ, though I have no idea what you're talking about.  ;)

Spyder, maybe some day, but not any time soon.  :)

Apropos of nothing, anyone working on any of those 70s designs or some of their own?

I "might" do something 70s flavoured...if I can ever get my comp running again.

As for missing Tiobe...yeah, I miss him quite a bit too. Course, there are quite a few blokes and blokettes that I've worked with here that I miss. Guess that's what I get for hanging around too long.

Wow, I am really out of practice.

Here is Bullet 2000. After years of using Super Speed provided by Energy X, Bullet has been reduced to a formless, Sentient, Energy, and has been forced to reside in one of Microwave's old Armors. His body no longer as fast as his mind, he has become borderline psychotic as he can no longer outrun the world around him.




This Skin uses Mr Pantz' Microwave BaseSkin, and pieces from Bullet and Microwave.

Looking good, CB and this is a very interesting, and a little disturbing backstory, it sounds like a perfect 90's take on Bullet.
BTW, where I can find this Microwave base? I have and idea about old MW for this challenge and it could be very useful.
