I love this site as it's so complete. All my favorite mods near each other.
I only just found this game. It looks incredible. Heavily reminds me of seeing Homeworld for the first time. I have high hopes for this project! Good luck and keep up the good work!
That actually sounds very logical Blamtroid :P Hadn't thought of it that way yet. :) It would just need some room for an operating crew.
This looks a little more like a Forerunner structure. Also, I see little to no place for Covenant to be present inside it. Could perhaps use a little more body?? Nonetheless; a very nice design.
Hmmm, now where have I seen this image before??
Honoring their Gods perhaps?
I think it generates income. Like scowering the floor for minerals.
Nice, and cool to see you used the BXR logo.
Is that a good thing?
Yeah :P 60+ models in this mod and I still suck at texturing :P I'll upgrade its texture later though :)
I'm not offering anything ... if he wants it he can ask for it himself. Seriously, just stick to commenting on the models. If I need management help, which I don't, I'll ask for it.
Its taken from the concept art Bungie released. Any specific thing you don't like about it?
She looks beautiful, she really does. But I'm afraid I stand by my previous opinion; she's just a little too thin. The first section is fine, but after that I would have liked it if she'd been slightly fatter with every section. But that's just me. I love her nonetheless.
Hahaha, love the Wall-e comment :P Looks nice though.
Wow, all kinds of new stuff there too :) Awesome!
But I am le tired
It looks good indeed. Very well done :)
Uuuhm, what makes Halo: Reach not canon? It is created by Bungie and I heard or read no claims from them it wasn't canon.
That is indeed the Devastator, but that is not the Orion from CaW and SotP. That was made entirely by them. This is another UNSC ship.
As you may have guessed, I didn't get around to finishing the texture last weekend. I am almost done with it now though :P So I'm going to upload that update tomorrow.
I was actually thinking this could eventually be made into one. But I'll hold that off till more is done.
This clearly the an infantry unit. It must be the Protoss Zealot! Yeah, I think I can rest assured with that anwser. :P
There won't be any sentinels in this picture eventually, but I do have a sentinel model. And yeah eventually the APU will be in.
Thanks, me too :P It'll be a large task, but it doesn't need to be finished anytime soon. I intend to first complete the entire dock and add a unique hovercraft to each platform. After that I'm considering doing the city below. :P
Hahaha, yeah. Who hasn't tried that?! XD
Do you mean the dark trading station in the back or the light grey things? The light grey things are part of the Forerunner Dreadnought.
It will be included, it just hasn't been made yet. As I put in the description; 5 more to go.
What kind of small-minded outcry is that Webzlinger? Besides, minus the Atlas, I really like the concepts. I'll be looking forward to seeing them modeled.
I'm just gonna use this as a base, I'll be making the entire thing from scratch but just wanted to show that I'll be using this as its base. I love the window area of this bridge.
And yay for us all. ^^
Yay for the shipyard in the back :P
Holy crap!! This thing is huge!!! And where did you get that map? :O I am amazed! Brilliant work here.
But it was destroyed by a Covenant plasma torpedo and then broke at its weakest point. And once a ship has broken in half, its not like it needs that more damage, right?
How many polygons are these ships? That's what really matters in size.
It looks brilliant. Don't change it too much anymore.
The model looks nice, though I'm a stronger fan of the Phase 1 models.
Is this screenshot made with your Agent Smith model? I don't recognize him in it.
Nice to see Blood Gulch, but is this mod only gonna have Halo maps? Where are the typical Halo models? Marines, Covenant troops, the Masterchief etc?
No, its not. Its a refitted colony ship.
Can't. This model is supposed to be low poly due to its small size and limited use.
I've read all the books yeah, and I do suppose you have a valid point, its just that I think they took a very different direction with the new version. And I know about all the refit-options that were done, its just that I think its a bit too much model-wise. To me, its like putting missile launchers on a WWII-era ship, the main model would still be a little old.
But this is just my opinion :P Judging by all the reactions I've had so far, it seems I stand alone in this.
I can't wait to see what you make of the Fleetwood Trailer. This looks great already.
That's because its not UNSC ...
I do intend on doing more to it then just that. :P It'll be good, trust me.
If you look at this screen it looks as if the missiles are also some kind of plasma weapon. I mean, I don't see any missiles. Just streaks of orange.
Very nice remodeling you guys! Awesome work.
Does this mean you're letting go of the old Astreus model? I loved that thing. :( I mean I like this too, not bad at all. But the old model just had that something to it.
Looks very nice. Great job Ringleader and/or Jebus!
Hahaha, and do not forget the cartoony Red Alert 2 just alltogether! Or Yuri on a bench with Stalin.
The texture looks good. But I still think you should change the Destroyer model. They're too similiar.
I don't like the model that much, or at least the front of it, but the skin is rather nice at most parts. :)
Love it! As well as all the other air units.
It doesn't have the UNSC feel. Right now it looks too much like a flat box with guns on it. Too few details perhaps?
Hmm, not sure if I like it really.
Nope, we also presented the FFG class Frigate already.
Looks really nice.
Hmm, a rather interesting model. Its not really UNSC looking though. But perhaps that's just me.
We got this model from H:FF. OverlordJebus gave us the model and I remodeled and textured it.
This is amazing. I love the infantry. I would love to have a similair shot of the NOD troopers.
Hahahaha you're welcome. Only problem is, I don't have good textures XD
Hahaha that's why I'm sticking with lower poly models. It'll also improve the gameplay. Which is what I'll need as I'm going to have missiles flying around everywhere.
Just pressing space bar I believe. :P easy no?
Wow, nice Frigate. Though I'd still change the backside texture a bit.
Not only ships that need protection, easy targets too :P
I can assure you that though we may have taken some inspiration from C&C3, we did made them ourself completely.
Looking forward to this. :)
You no like?
Nice of you to notice. :P Yeah it is, but I thought it was weird that they moved to a completely different skin and I didn't want to have to choose between which would be ingame so I just made it a new class. :P
Hahaha, I'm not going to say what it is, just yet. I'm going to release something special soon. :P
H:FF calls it that. Litofsky had a story about an Admiral with a ship named the Keye of Life, so I asked Velo if I could use the design after I modeled it from the picture they released and he agreed. And so now I'm using it under the name Keye of Life.
I'm not sure what you mean by that, could you rephrase?
It is. The Spirit of Fire is a Phoenix class Colony ship refit.
What do you mean? It's a trading station.
It's the lighting. Check the picture with all ships lined up. That's it's real color.
No, Keye of Life. Its a one of a kind ship. Its sort of a tribute to Litofsky of the H:FO forums.
Why is the model so light? And she could really use a retexture. I've never been about that myself. :P It's nice to see her ingame though. Nice work.
Good that we have things set up, now all we need is a forum and some people and we're done.
It's a real problem thinking of some good Covenant space units isn't it? I ran into the same trouble before too. Still, I must say, your things look good so far.
Hey OldDragon, nice to see the page is up. It's looking nice. I'll PM you on the forums.
Hmmm, you can really see the difference now. Let's just hope you'll be able to easily tell the difference in a battle.
You might wanna check Halopedia for scaling.
This thing looks so magnificent. It'd almost be a sin not to put this in game no matter what. If you guys don't use it for your mod then please at least let me use it for mine.
I've never liked kit-bashes and this is no exception. Sorry.
Wow, I really like this one. It looks stunning.
Looks like a normal X-wing to me. What's the difference?
I'm not all too experienced with 3ds max but if you put some more concepts up I could try to make some.
Thanks a lot to respond to my request Freno! :lol:
Oh okay, then. Maybe I will download this mod after all. Just make sure that you get all the names spelled right, because cheng is Chang and treze is Treize. I might even be able of some help. Though not much since I can't model or texture. However some medium things. If you need anything just send me a personal message. For now, here's a list with all the names properly spelled:
Heero Yuy, Wing Zero, Relena Peacecraft/Dorlain, Duo Maxwell, Deathscythe, Quatre Rabarba Winner and the Maganacs, Sandrock, Trowa Barton, Heavyarms, Chang Wu Fei, Nataku, Sally Po, Lucrezia Noin, Treize Khushrenada, Epyon, Tallgeese, Zechs Merquise/Milliardo Peacecraft, Lady Une, Mariemaia Khushrenada, Hilde and Howard.
Also, will both the ground and space Leo suit be in?
Sorry for the long message and namelist, I just want this mod to be a great mod.
I think without the drums it would have been cooler. Its a bit too techno at the moment. Nice piece overall though.
Is it just me or is the effect rather large compared to the ship? Looks nice though.
Hey Aliah, did you ever get my mail?
I heard he sleeps upside down like a bat, and that he once punched a horse to the ground. All I know is, he's called Swiss Knight.
Nice, but such a shame its the Phase 2 armor. I much prefer Phase 1 gear.
Looks good. Can't wait to see it modeled. Can't see the back part really well though, so I'm looking forward as to what that's going to be like.
No, I had more comments about that. But like I said, I kinda like it this way. I might change it, but I'm not sure yet.
Trust me, I used that collision to calculate an estimated size. Its accurate enough for me as it is right now.
2011 looks like it's for Yuri indeed. 2010, however, could probably still be used for the Allies.
Hmmm, that might not be such a bad idea ... A new texture, some tweaking of the model ... Hmmm
I'll be filling all platforms and even then there are some more designs. Nebuchadnezzar and the Osiris are already in this picture. I've researched a lot on the designs of the Matrix hovercrafts and even found some pretty useful renders of the remaining ships so I'll definatly be using that.
Well, this was modeled after a piece of concept art by Bungie artists. Here; its the top model without the hole in the neck.
These do look good, but I look out not to give all Allied vehicles huge tire or tracks.
Hehe, I voted! This screen is awesome :D
Looks good :)
It is a nice model, but more of a Destroyer look I feel. Also, I'd change the proportions a bit. The middle part a little less height and the back a little wider perhaps. Nice job though, and a fast one too.
Does this mean we will also be seeing the Covenant Corvette? :D
Hmm, not sure for a frigate model. But I'll wait till its modeled before I can really say something more solid.
Things might be in motion again.
Hmm, ingame she looks a lot better indeed.
Very nice fan trailer indeed!! Bravo!
Well, as long as you still do that too. Someone needs to keep Golly in check :P
OMG!!! WOW! You do work?
While seeing this I'm wondering why the ship is still so tall?
If you can't turn the ships, perhaps you can lower the planets? Just thinking out loud here.
I'm glad to see you guys got Levianthan on board. I can't wait to see what he thinks of next.
Reading that word makes me think of the RA3 Dreadnought;
What a majestic sight we must be! :D
Looks cool :D
In the novels he didn't die, it was a cover-up from Section 31 so he could infiltrate Romulan space. :P
This looks so awesome! I can't wait to play this mod :D
I love it :D
Very nice piece of music indeed. Well done!!
"Through the shitstorm" would be a better title :P Very nice!
Hmm, though it is nice, I'm not entirely sure about the design.
Well, there might be a reason it never got it :P The base of this too reminds me of Gundam Wing, while I continue to wonder as to why its sharpened at the tip.
I might change it, but I quite like it. And yes, the design you're reffering to is a lot better, but they're not using that anymore.
Nothing :P its a campaign prop :P
A colony is a city, and a colony class ship was carrying materials to set up a colony, so a colony class ship was large enough to carry a city and its people with it. That's a lot. A lot more then a division of marines, vehicles, fighters and pelicans and all. Remember that the Pillar was already carrying quite a lot of personel and material and that ship was only 1.17km long. But we can't know for sure what size a supercarrier is unless Bungie tells us really.
What you see here is the little progress that I've made in texturing :P I'm not good at it, but I try to improve myself. As soon as I have all models done I'll digg a little deeper into texturing and eventually I'll redo all models. This is, however, probably how they're all going to be in the first release.
It looks amazing. It really does. I don't know what else to say :P
Awesome that its going in the dock :D
Did they even model the entire thing? To my shame I have to say I still haven't played the game yet so I don't know if in the campaign you can fly around it.
Looks good. And if you need decent pictures of Anchor 9, let me know.
Cool, I see that the shipyard is also ingame :) Plus I recognize that placeholder behind that :P
I try to maintain the rhythm of updating every month and a half. Last time I didn't make it, but I will this time. No worries.
Actually, that was never said directly. Sure the Supercarrier was strong, and best in its field, nothing is said about its size and strenght other then "its fricking huge" and "very strong".
Like he said, family always comes first and I think most of us here understand. I know I do.
Press 8 in 3ds max and you can choose the background color of the render.
Engines much? Otherwise looks good though.
No man, look at that jaw. The name is Stallone. Sylvester Stallone.
Are those sketch-up models?
Holy **** Blamtroid. Just wow. I'd make it a special ship. It looks really awesome.
Hey! I read it too! :P And Blamtroid's right, it is an awesome model.
GDI ships so far have always been rather blocky, I advice against using round shapes for their ships.
The model's texture is more brown/greyish, but due to the lights it looks purple.
Thanks, you're the first to say so.
I exported it from 3ds max to an obj file. Obj can be opened in Lightwave.
I absolutely love it!
I'd reconsider the design of that shipyard at the back. And perhaps that small one as it looks a bit too Star Trek. The large platform is nice though.
No they don't look identical. You've read that part wrong. The keyword in that sentence was basicly, meaning it was different.
What's changed on the Halcyon?
Its supposed to look a lot like the Halcyon. And as for "you guys", its just me so its hard enough doing all this work by myself. But you're very welcome to make a design that's better.
It is, check the call to arms wallpaper. Looks fine over there.
Well, nice going Velo then :)
Looks very interesting :)
Now that is awesome! Love it.
You might wanna consider retexturing this one.
Hmmm, thanks. I'll see to that.
I'll add the core later. I wanted to see if people wanted that yes or no. And apparently they do :P
Everybody needs to get a blimp, cause a blimp is pretty pimp XD
What's behind the marathon?
Who ever said it was similair to this?
Absolutely great. I love it.
Love the model!!
We already presented the Marathon :P so no.
What harvester? I assume you mean the Frigate?
Hmmm, I don't really like it that much. The original version is much more smooth, but I am curious as to what the final version will be.
Nice model Blamtroid :)
True, but the Spirit isn't really a warship. Its a colony ship.
But you agree with the idea of a genocidal race bent on destroying humanity who is already spread amongst the stars. Its fiction dude ...
Which ships are that? They look cool.
Yeah, that's them alright :)
Read the description. It says it right there.
Actually, a Marathon is only about 20 meters longer then a Halcyon. :P But yeah, you're right about the rest.
I absolutely love this War Factory!! It was always my favourite building.
Man, this looks really awesome. Can't wait for it to be released.
I like it, but she's a little devoid of color.
Truely awesome, great work CanadaMan.
I don't like it that much. First of because I really hate things made in Sketch-up, but putting that aside, there's no real connection between that ship and known Covenant ships.
Mostly because Homefront makes everything themselfs. And no offence Blamtroid, but it'd change the model anyways if I were you. This looks way too much like the Frigate. Your modelling skils have grown a lot though. I especially like the MAC platform.
It's a little flat for a UNSC ship. But nice to see that your modeling skill have grown so much.
A place for infantry, vehicles and air? Where? I don't see it. Besides, why would a command centre have that? This building sketch just doesn't make sense as it's just a shape and not a functional design. Sorry for saying this but as an architect student these things have always been a critical point for me.
Actually it's only half the size of the Covenant's Flagship from Halo 2.
