You could just make a planet that is a star in every other way and put two of them in the system. If I recall correctly, Distant Stars did this.
Lockerd, while the ME weapons accelerate rounds to the speed of light, they are so small that their impact yield is measured in mere kilotons. Halo's MAC rounds are measured in megatons, and I believe the SMAC round is measured in giga or tera-tons. The explosive yield of the UNSC's NOVA Bomb is in the Peta-ton range.
Get the hell out of here. People like you ruin mod pages for everyone. No one wants to here you whine about how you want to play the mod. *******.
You could implement a particle effect with a sphere mesh ever so slightly larger than the atmosphere, and attach the planet pipeline effect to it.
The Titan is decent, but I actually like the gunship and frigate designs very much. They looks so unconventional, and the gunship isn't symmetrical across the center, it's awesome. Reminds me of the game Homeworld.
No animations in sins. Think again.
The sail isn't NEARLY big enough to power a ship that size. You would need one many hundreds if not thousands of times the size of the ship it is powering. SO, no, megas, you are wrong. Apparently YOU have never researched solar panels yourself.
That's a pretty good model of a Halcyon Cruiser in the background. Looks like it could be a carrier or something. Will the covenant be in this mod too?
I can see you're going for a nice realistic design. That's good, I like realistic.
A sail on a spacecraft? Really?
This is a well done model, but the design of the ship makes absolutely no sense. The hole in the front of the ship makes for an inexcusable weak point, a single shot right down the middle would destroy the ship.
You said he made it across the galaxy in 30 years. This means it was traveling at 1,666c. I sure HOPE it wasn't meant to be realistic, I can see that it wasn't intended to be after seeing your ship designs/story line.
I up-voted you because you said "chill le tits" and I laughed.
I do not disagree with you. If he had said they used some type of warp drive to reach that speed I wouldn't be arguing, but he uses a gravity sling. A gravity sling is a force of nature, it would be like saying you got shot out of a volcano at the speed of light. We know that cannot happen, and it will never be able to happen. There is no way a gravity sling could accelerate a sub-luminal particle to 1,666c, or else it would be happening all the time and we would be using it to colonize space right now.
This actually leads to another problem. If they were traveling at 1,666c, nothing could have slowed them down, they would have never stopped, and would've left the Milky Way. Deceleration at speeds the crew could survive in would take BILLIONS of years. Furthermore, the gravity sling would have launched them off with a force of 50783967223g. For reference, 200g is lethal.
This is not technology Corelious, he said the ship used a gravity sling to accelerate to 1,666c. That is not possible. If it had already been moving that fast then it wouldn't come as a shock that they were half way across the galaxy, and they would have just come back. So they must have been traveling at less than 1,666c, a nothing-not even a gravity sling could accelerate you to more than just .99c, making this speed impossible.
I'm confused. The Tsar Bomba was detonated and did not destabilize the ecosystem of the earth, so if the CARE package is the equivalent of the Tsar Bomba, why would IT destabilize a planet?
They've encircled us. We're surrounded on the left and on the right, to the front and to the rear, they can't escape from us now.
Possibly the worst reasoning I have ever seen. In space, there wouldn't even be an explosion. There would be a quick flash followed by debris flying around. The only real explanation for why the autumn's explosion was so large is because it was inside Halo's atmosphere. In Halo: Reach, a UNSC frigate explodes and the explosion is only maybe twice as big as the frigate, and that one was still in the upper layers of Reach's atmosphere.
Halo engagement ranges are stated (somewhere) to be an average of 100,000km. The Archer missiles would not be continuously firing their engines, they would aim themselves at a target and then use their engines to stay on track.
If I'm a troll, I'm a troll that knows more about sins modding, physics, and common sense than you do, so I can live with that.
Yes, but the MAC rounds' acceleration is such that by the time the archer missile was launched the MAC would already be closing in on (or missing) its target. The more thrust is applied the more acceleration is produced. The archer missile's acceleration is nothing compared to the MAC.
Yeah, I've pointed out before that all the meshes look like they're made of play-dough because of the way they smoothed em'.
Please do :) I love critiquing.
Looks good. The missile effects are way too fast. They are almost as fast as MAC rounds. The explosions are too big, the debris are too big, etc. Other than that it looks fantastic. It also looks like the ships tangent smoothing value is WAY TOO HIGH.
I am a Critic. Trolls post mindless nonsense to make people mad. I am posting through my knowledge of sins modding, physics, and logic.
There is a logical fact, it's called the Theory of Relativity or E=MC^2. An object cannot go faster than the speed of light through conventional means. "Sling shotting around a planet" is a conventional means. Traveling 50,000 light years in 30 years would mean traveling at 1,666 times the speed of light...impossible.
Mankind did not fake the moon landings. There is no proof that they did, and a cover-up that big would cost more time, money, and effort than really going there.
The CORE of the earth is just a chunk of iron and a little nickel. No uranium.
The Galaxy is 100,000 light years across, halfway across the galaxy would be 50,000 light years.. A light year is the distance it takes light to travel in one year. Assuming 25% the speed of light (which you could NEVER achieve through a simple gravity sling around a planet) the formula would be:
50,000LY/.25c=200,000 years. where LY=1 light year, and c=the speed of light.
Space is very large.
Because...I'm...Always C Critic...
That only changes the point about WW2. Nothing else.
The storyline is somewhat amusing but really makes no sense at all. There is no uranium in the core of the earth, it is a giant chunk of iron. There is no way that a mining operation could blow up the planet. The technology to get to mars was not available in the 50s, and if it were, then WW2 would have been fought using it. This tech would have included nuclear weapons, and there would have been a devastating nuclear war as Berlin was being invaded by the Soviets, or as Japan was being defeated island after island in the pacific.
Sling shotting around mars wouldn't make the ship go very fast, and the speed would be very much bellow the speed of light. Assuming a velocity of 25% light speed (ridiculously generous number, wouldn't even be close to it.) drifting even half way across the galaxy would take 200,000 years.
