Having discovered the CDs with the full osts, has there been any attempt at ripping the full soundtracks with flac/scans? These are super expensive and seemingly hard to get, surely someone musta been frustrated by this...
Nintendo has made Majora's mask in under 2 years by recycling a lot of content to make OoT and yet it is very different and and so one of the most beloved entries in that series. If Star fox 64 2 has a similar sort of development history ad Majora's mask and still be on the N64 console, what would have been like?

I'm The VGM Lover. I share a good Video Game tune/remix/cover every single day down on my twitter page (which you can find in my signature down below). I also happen to have been here since 2015, a year before I started my twitter (I used to call myself amcintyr9998, and was nicknamed Cintyr, until I finally changed it later in 2016).
When I see a damn good cover of a damn good Star Fox tune like this one, you bet your bums I'm gonna showcase it, and now, I'd also like to take this time to open up a new conversation on it. If you have thoughts on it, share it here! The pleasure is all mine!
Good Afternoon dear SFO Community.
I´m working with the User SNES1993 on my 2nd Star Fox Fan Fiction (the first one is in German) & i would like to make a custom Star Map of the Lylat System for it like this example here:

So now i´m looking for someone who has experience in Sprite or Pixel Artwork which i could request or Commission (payment possible via PayPal)
Please comment below if someone is interested in helping me creating the custom Map
Not sure if this should go in classic or general, please move if needs be.
You might think a thread like this is a bit pointless considering we already have a straight remake on the 3DS and Zero which is basically a remake of 64, but hear me out! Starfox 64 might arguably be the best in the series, but that doesn't mean its immune to critisism, so I've been thinking of what could be done to improve the game if it were to be remade today.
First off, the story. In my opinion the story serves its purpose well, but it is very bare bones. My ideal remake would flesh out the story and characters more, add more context specific dialogue, etc. and adding additional cutscenes in between missions.
Level design- The level design in 64 can at times be boring, especially the All-Range missions. Lets take Sector Z for example, its meant to be a hazardous area with magnetic fluxuations and debris. So what if for that mission, your radar is hampered or disabled? Or perhaps in a series first you start in All-range mode then enter an on-rails segment, maybe the Great Fox's engines keep malfunctioning (Giving an good reason why tis just sitting there while missiles are targeting it). This is just one example of how the levels could be made more distinct and fun.
Extras and unlockables- Lets face it, the game just simply needs more unlockables and bonuses. One thing I thought of was the dishes in the Corneria stage- You can destroy them, but it does nothing for your score. So what if in this hypothetical remake destroying these dishes unlocks a little bonus? Just little side objectives and optional bonuses that would really help add more replay value.
This could also tie into the worldbuilding and lore- finding little secrets or completing mini objectives that unlock info about the planets, characters, ships, etc. would again add a lot to the overall experieince and give more drive to replay the levels.
Those are just a few little ideas, but obviously this is an open discussion, so what would you add or change to make Starfox 64 to make it better?
