Mute City by priteeboy Mute City by priteeboy
My second entry to the Ultimate Fandom Contest 3 for Videogames, the necessary details are as follows:

-Ultimate fandom contest 3: video games (link already provided)
-Gaming franchise: the F-Zero series (moreso the N64 version)
-Character or Environment: Environment
-My description: read below...

I wanted at least one of my entries that I'll make for this to not be either Sonic, Mario or Final Fantasy-related lol, so I thought about other games I enjoyed playing, perferrably ones that are around a decade old by today, which to me, may have had primitive graphics, but sure had some of the best gameplay value :XD: I don't know what possessed me to play F-Zero-X back then, since it was pretty far from the "usual" stuff I like (same thing with Lylat Wars, which I grew to enjoy, maybe I was more open-minded then lol) And since I would probably have a hard time drawing their detailed characters (which aren't much to look at) I figured creating a realistic remake of one of the most known stage environments in the game would be a cool thing to do (plus I'm a sucker for purple too :giggle:)

Now for the technical details for all those curious little minds out there:
Firstly, I'm very surprised that my last entry was finished only a week ago, since this honestly felt like it took two, maybe because I spent more hours per-day working on it (I even took my file to class last week lol) I made plenty of futuristic building-models from scratch in Cinema 4D, which was a pretty boring and repetitive task, and about 80% of the time I spent on this was on that bit alone. I could have used free plugins like "citygen" to make building creation faster, or even used the "dystopia" buildings that come with Vue to save time...But no, I wanted everything to be fully my creation, the good o'l way, no stocks or corner-cutting here.
Once the buildings were made, I then imported them to Vue 6 where they were re-textured and re-named (naming and texturing hundreds of little peices again was a royal bore, luckily I saved the buildings as objects to save time on my next sci-fi scene) But finally, with that done, I could do the fun stuff...playing with the lighting and atmosphere, then taking a day off while it rendered, then postworking extra details in Photoshop :dance:

Sounds like you need some medicine :ohnoes:

Well, I can't see myself lending anything out for free at this point. Though I do hope Nintendo considers another official F-Zero game in the franchise at some point. Would be cool to see something like that in HD (which would probably even look better than my version by now ;p)

It seems to be a franchise that's been forgotten about over time...Even though I've only ever played two of its games ^^; I would like to see one for the Wii U. The one on the GameCube was very visually impressive, the Wii U could do it so much better now that Nintendo finally jumped on the HD bandwagon. Though the GameCube one was too hard I must admit, a difficulty level along the lines of F-Zero X would be great :D

Mute City is my favorite track from F-Zero, and one of my favorites in F-Zero X. It also has my favorite music in the F-Zero series.
I'd like to visit Mute City. It looks like an interesting city to visit or even to live in. It looks like a pleasant future city.

I never got to play the original F-Zero, but I remember lots about the one on the N64 :nod: I think I liked the music to Port Town most on that one, but I most wanted to visit Big Blue - it looked clean and fresh and there were eco-domes everywhere :D

Got that right! Don't you think that The Doctor & Rose Tyler were "in the same during F-Zero's time", hypothetically speaking that is...

Lol, Nintendo has provided so many good memories for so many people :D First one I got was F-Zero X on the N64 (I know there's an earlier one but we didn't have much games on the original Nintendo ^^;) It was a hard game, I can't even remember if I finished it fully or not - the later one on the GameCube was even harder again :faint:

It's a very nice picture but something about it just doesn't feel like Mute City to me. In the SNES F-Zero, Mute City had a clear blue sky and somewhat mushroom-like buildings.

Mute city seems to change from game to game - I based this one off how it looked on the N64 game (and it's level late ron in Super Smash Bros Melee on the Gamecube)

It was changed again in the GameCube version F-Zero GX where it takes place at night time so there's no real telling what colour everything would be :O

Thanks! yeah it's a cool game, they made the GameCube version way too hard though, but its graphics were incredible for that console :omg: However the one one the N64 stands out as the most memorable to me 8-)

Even if this wasn't Mute City, or F-Zero "fanart" it'd still be amazing, and very enjoyable to view. :) You did a good job recreating the city here, one of the most memorible racetracks/areas in the game, and adding your own take on it, as well.

I love those F-Zero games ever sense I got the first SNES one for my birthday as a kid.

Ahh don't games always make exciting birthday and Christmas gifts :D I remember many of the times I got games for my birthday :dance:

Thanks. My version was inspired by the Mute City level in Super Smash Bros Melee, which is the same thing just updated with better graphics =p (though there was a Mute City in the F-Zero GX game on the Gamecube too with great graphics, but it looked totally different :O) Which brings me to the fact I eventually gave up on GX - waaay too hard for me to complete all the story missions :faint:

Yeah, the one in SSBMelee, is the same one from "F-Zero X" for N64. (Complete with the roller-coaster style shuttle loop.) That's one's usually considered the best F-Zero game.

GX was pretty good, but I agree... They made "Story mode" waaaay to hard. The other game modes, & unlockables were nice though.
